Musings on the Tarot

rp_Queens-300x168.jpgFor years and years, I used a 3-card Tarot spread as part of my daily spiritual practice. Then I guess I sort of got tired of using the cards. Around 2011 or so, my practice evolved to focus more on meditation and journaling.

In 2014, I started doing a monthly Tarot reading for myself on the New Moon. I haven’t missed a month yet! It felt good to get back to using the cards regularly, if less often. I was still a bit resistant about doing readings for others, though. I’m not sure why.

Lately I’ve been gradually moving back toward using Tarot more often. I’ve given several readings for friends over the past few months. At a women’s group I attend, we used the cards while working with our ancestors, and the woman who was running the circle asked me to help her with interpreting the cards the women drew.

It feels good to be back to using Tarot in various parts of my life. I feel like I have a new appreciation for it, and a refreshed approach. So I thought it might be fun to do a little series on the Tarot, here on the blog.

What would be most useful to you? Here are some of the ideas I’ve had: I could choose or draw a card and then base a blog post on it (like this), write about how to use Tarot for personal growth work, review specific Tarot decks, or perhaps create my own Tarot layouts and share them here. Please let me know what sounds interesting to you. If you have additional ideas, please share those, too.

The decks I use most often currently are:

The Mystic Faerie Tarot by Barbara Moore and Linda Ravenscroft
Sacred Circle Tarot Deck by Anna Franklin and Paul Mason (shown in the picture, above)
Voyager Tarot by James Wanless
