Tarot Tuesday – The World, The King of Swords in reverse, and some crystal talk

I finally organized my tarot table in my room aka sanctuary and I am so very happy to have a designated space to sit and mediate, read tarot cards, or just be pensive and contemplative.

Check it out!

Tarot Tuesday (on Wednesday*): strange synchronicities, the Empress and the number 3

*snowstorm, 4 hours of shoveling, appointments and other delays… 😯

Recently I listened to three tarot readers on YouTube on the same day. I typically do this while designing beaded jewelry, but I keep a notepad handy to take notes when they remark on something that increases my knowledge on tarot cards and their interpretations.

Two of the readers were addressing the zodiac sign of Libra (me), and one of them was addressing all air signs (Libra, Aquarius and Gemini). All of them were reading for the same upcoming week.

One of them had a spread of cards already laid out, the other two shuffled and laid out their cards while online.

Here is where it got interesting:

Tarot Tuesday – Two of Pentacles

Over the holidays I often shuffled and played with my tarot cards just for fun. Some of the family is interested, and we look at the cards in a low-key sort of way by analyzing the images and symbolism and looking at how they connect to our personal circumstances.

One day, the Two of Pentacles showed up twice. I took that as significant, except I didn’t realize at the time how significant it was.

Tarot Tuesdays – Astrology and the Zodiac

Disclaimer: I’m no expert. I’m sharing my journey into learning about the tarot cards and sharing my perspectives with you.

***

Did you know that the Minor Arcana cards (swords, cups, pentacles and wands) are associated with the four elements of air, water, earth and fire? I explained this in one of my first Tarot Tuesday posts, if you’re interested in a refresher.

I learned about the zodiac connection while listening to tarot readers on youtube. Some read tarot cards for each zodiac sign (libra or taurus for example) whereas others might read for the collective, say all the fire signs. So if you’re a Sagittarius you would tune in to the fire sign reading because Sag is associated with the element fire.

So here’s a short lesson about elements and how the relate to the zodiac signs.

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.

Moving on(wards)

I made an interesting discovery the other day: the five tarot readers I listened to on youtube – while designing jewelry in a quiet house sans kids – all talked about how Libra is either traveling or moving in September. ⚖️♎

They all mentioned this. They all had a similar message for the collective. They all pulled cards and interpreted them from different geographical regions at different times or days. And still, the messages were eerily similar.

It was a bit perplexing. 😀

So weird how the universe works… 😳

Maybe I’ll write up a thing for next Tarot Tuesday on this topic. Stay tuned.

Here’s the thing:

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 Tuesdays – the fives in the Minor Arcana

I introduced a glimpse into the fives of the Minor Arcana cards in this youtube video on my new channel (and chatted with you about a few other things, as well). Today, I’m digging deeper into the meaning of the fives. Thank you for joining me on another Tarot Tuesday.
