THE TRUTH ABOUT TAROT--an interesting article...

The Truth About Tarot By James McConnachie Whether divining ancient wisdoms or elevating the art of cold reading, tarot is a form of therapy, much like psychoanalysis There are clues that this is no ordinary suburban living room. For one, we’re in Glastonbury. Then there’s the perfumed candle, the Buddha figure, the cloth draped over the television and, not least, the worn little wooden box that sits atop an occasional table hung with black silk. Inside it are 78 tarot cards. I have come to Glastonbury as a ‘querent’ – which is what tarot practitioners call a customer. A querent, traditionally, comes with a question. I have several. Assuming that tarot cards do not work as a method of reading the future, why does tarot persist? How has tarot survived as an object, a practice, a text, and a peculiarly velvety strand in European popular culture? Where did something so strange, dream-like and overburdened with symbolism come from? In Glastonbury’s bookshops, alongside sections on stone ci…

#TarotandStars is leaving Tampa, Florida very soon and heading for the forest and mountains...and a new life! I want to thank my clients in advance for all the good times and the healing! I will always be available for online readings or consultations over the phone so I hope we will all stay connected. I will be here until the beginning of March and if you want to get together before then, message or text me to set up an appointment or even a cup of coffee and some conversation will do. I will be working at Enchanted Triple Moon and Alchemy & Ashes until I leave. #tarotintampa

REAL TALK: ARE TAROT READINGS THE SAME AS PSYCHIC READINGS?

Image
“How’s your day going?” I asked the woman who had just sat down in front of me. She was here for a tarot reading, my third client of the day and a new one for me. “Great!” she said. “My mom is babysitting so I have a day off from my five-year-old – but you probably already knew that,” she said, grinning at me expectantly. “No, actually,” I said. “I don’t know a thing about you.” Now, this isn’t always how things go when I’m starting a session. People don’t always assume that “tarot reader” is synonymous with “psychic.” But many do seem to think that “psychic” is synonymous with “omniscient,” meaning all-seeing and all-knowing, and things get tricky when all of these lines are blurred and lumped into one big, presumptuous mess. Before getting a reading of any kind – whether it’s with a tarot reader, a medium, a palm reader, an astrologer, a clairvoyant, or anything in between – know that anyone working with intuitive tools, like tarot cards, or through spirit guides, like a medium, doesn’t…

CALCULATE YOUR SOUL, PERSONALITY AND YEAR CARD IN TAROT

Image
DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE MATH! To determine your soul and personality card, add the day, month and year you were born.Take that total and add all of those numbers in a row. If the sum is more than 22, add together the resulting numbers. If the sum is between 10 and 22, that number is your personality card. Add that number together to find your soul card. To calculate your year card, do this:add the number of the day and the month you were born to the year you want to check your card for. Then add those numbers all together for the total. The sum of those numbers is your year card. Your year card is in effect and you are under it's influence from your last birth-date to your upcoming (or next) birth-date.  If you have any questions on this, just ask me (use the contact form on this site). *I use the number 22 for the Fool in order to assign a number value to that card. 
**Create a chart or an old calendar and calculate past year cards. Analyze what issues, lessons, life passages were …
