Energetic self-care is honoring that we have fields of subtle vibrational experience that deserve attention. Our emotional, physical, and energetic bodies are intertwined. When we acknowledge the energetic body with a practice, we serve the emotional and physical as well.
Learning the Tarot can be daunting.
78 cards with layered meanings. Reversals for each of those. Archetypes. Then the cards intermingling in a spread to create a meaningful story. Where to begin?
As a teacher by trade, I have decoded the cards so you can smoothly tap into this life skill. In my upcoming 9-hour Art of Tarot Reading Course, we will go over all of these areas and many more. It’s a fun exploration into your own inner wisdom with solid tools to enhance your approach.
Typically, those who start life with the gift to see beyond our acceptable norms keep them secret and their insights may fade.
But that is not the end of them, and there is another way.
Whether you had metaphysical abilities that you quelled, or you felt curious attraction to understand your instincts, you can access these abilities. It still takes courage to decide to own your full life experience in this path.
When we pull a tarot spread, we are looking for comfort and guidance. We want to know what is going on and where this is headed.
When we read for ourselves, the interpretation is through the lens of the same anxiety that we sought answers from.
That’s why it’s important to remember the purpose of divination and the inherent compassion that the cards come from.
Or, to get a reading from someone who can bring objectivity to the situation.
It is our inherent nature to be involved with other humans. Our desire for this runs so deep that we will often choose it at some cost or compromise. It can pay off enormously with support and connection, but even then it’s rarely all easy sailing. My tarot readings treat our companions with compassionate curiosity and a lot of humor. This week, I offer a lesson around the archetypes in relevant relationship cards and a reading for those looking for love.
It’s been a year since the tumult of Covid began. That simple question carries more sincerity and weight than it did before. Consider just that factor.
When we ask this once flippant question, we expect a more real answer these days than the default of, “Fine. You?”
We want to know. There is a beauty in that shift, despite the challenges that got us here.
The words we say matter, and we define ourselves by any description that follows the simple words, “I Am”.
What words do you use after that pronoun and ‘be’ verb?
Think about it. Because this matters. Our hearts and minds are listening.
While this day is associated with romantic love, I hope we can each revel in the many ways we both receive and give love to all those around us. I see reading Tarot as an act of love and service. I am grateful for each person who spends time with me in this realm. So, from my heart, thank you for being with me in this journey.
From April 9, 2020, I did a Facebook live about how the Hermit Archetype can support us through Shelter-in-Place.
10 months later, it’s still relevant.
