I drew the Star card for the first time last weekend while making plans for the next chapter in my life.
Naturally, I was intrigued. I pulled this card in a sequence of three cards, like I usually draw, but like the last time, one card jumped the deck. This is the spread:
The King of Swords was the card that jumped the deck. It means something (but what?). I’ll go investigate this in a minute.
The Two of Cups and the Ace of Swords I placed on my past and future spot on my paper, and will look at later.
For now, I’m interested in the present. As you know from this post, my present has a bit of upheaval in it, but in a good way. I’m interested in seeing what this Major Arcana card, the Star, has to tell me.
I mentioned in this video that I pulled some wand cards the other day.
So first, I had this deep, long chat with a friend. I wanted to sit down and make some notes but yada yada it didn’t happen right away. Before I walked away from everything to exercise I took my deck of tarot cards and shuffled while asking this question:
“How do I re-center myself so I can focus on my tasks?”
Two of the three cards that appeared were the Seven of Wands and the Ace of Wands. (The third was the High Priestess but I will leave her this time.)
… with Tarot Tuesday, I thought I’d chat your ears off for 10 minutes. (Sorry not sorry) PS – tested the sound on two devices. I managed to hear although once or twice I faded out. I hope you can hear my voice, let me know if you can’t. I will write up a description about the Ace of Wands and the Seven of Wands in a separate post so we can all learn the tarot, tap into our own intuition, and engage among each other. Stay tuned. And thank you for reading and watching! You can follow this series … Continue reading Before I begin…
A funny thing happened while I was shuffling. One card flew out! My instinct was to pick it up and shove it back into the deck, but every professional tarot reader would have my head if I did that. They say the universe, or spirit, are communicating with me and that the wayward card fell out for a reason.
I picked it up and saw it was the Four of Swords. The other cards behaved themselves, so I pulled them from the deck myself.

The Lovers card in upright position in the classic tarot deck irritates me. At least at first glance.
In recent weeks, the moon in the sky had featured prominently both in our daily lives and all over the news media. There were full moons and strawberry moons and an eclipse… Unsurprisingly, the moon is on my mind.
Interestingly, the Moon tarot card itself doesn’t seem to appear very often; for me, it hasn’t at all. I have not drawn the Moon XVIII Major Arcana card at all in the months I’ve been learning the tarot.
My mom has her own deck of cards, and every once in a while she sends me a text to let me know what cards she pulled. She did see the Moon card appear at least once, but she said she didn’t like its messages.
I decided to dig a little deeper into the Moon card mainly to educate mom (who reads this blog) as well as myself and others who have an interest in learning more about tarot card reading and interpretation.
