Tarot Tuesday – The Hanged Man reversed

I pulled some cards randomly the other day. While I was shuffling, the Hanged Man flew out of my deck and landed on the floor upside down.

Tarot Tuesday – the Death card

The Death card is often misunderstood in tarot readings. People think, oh now, someone is going to die!

In fact, the Death card is a positive, and often essential card for people who feel stuck or trapped in certain life situations. Think of a job you don’t like, a relationship that no longer serves you, or some other circumstance that makes you feel hopeless, unmotivated or stale.

When the Death card shows up in a reading, the most significant and powerful message it conveys is that of transformation.

Tarot Tuesdays – the Star card

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.

Tarot Supplement – eerily accurate cards

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.

If you want to see or hear me talk about the cards, click on this post which has a 5-minutes youtube video of me talking about these cards briefly.

Tarot Supplement – Irritated about The Lovers card

Disclaimer: I am not religious, and my observations and interpretations of this somewhat religious tarot card may sound a little crass to those of you who follow a deeply Christian worldview. Comments are welcome but will be blocked if they attack or otherwise offend me or my readers.

The Lovers card in upright position in the classic tarot deck irritates me. At least at first glance.

Tarot Supplement – The Judgement card

The Judgement is a Major Arcana card and appears right before the final card The World in the tarot deck.

I drew this card along with The King of Swords and The Lovers in reverse, both of which deserve their own analysis.

In this post, I will analyze the Judgement card, and see how it applies to life.

Tarot Supplement – What’s in the cards

Today’s Tarot Supplement title is courtesy of Deb who suggested it in this post. Read about the launch of Tarot Tuesdays here.

As you will find out on the upcoming Tarot Tuesday, I did not study anything about tarot cards prior to choosing some and reading them. I simply dove in and dabbled around the internet to make sense of the cards.
