  1. I sort of wanted to share my experience with tarot with a wider group of people, and I’m also hoping that by writing this post I’ll understand more of why I feel the need to do that.

    So, background. I’m a 24 year old male, just finished a Master’s degree, taking a bit of time to just breathe before I go into the big bad world of work. I had always been intrigued by the ‘unknown’ – tarot, ghosts, astrology, all that stuff – but more from an academic perspective than any kind of true belief. I found them interesting in the way that mythology is interesting, if that makes any sense at all. This was until perhaps seven or eight months ago. A lot of drama was going down in my main friendship group (especially with two people who I’ll call Evelyn and Todd, to cover up their real names – long story short, they had a romantic relationship frought with problems, and they refused to speak to each other about them, only spoke about their problems with me, and then blamed me when they didn’t take my advice and their problems continued), and I was having numerous personal problems alongside, so I was particularly stressed. A few of my friends in a different friendship group in university practice tarot, and one, who I’ll call Lomas, offered to give me a reading. I went into it thinking ‘of course this is utter bollocks, but we’ll see where it goes’.

    The reading was dead on. Despite me at the beginning trying to hide the fact that I was holding a lot of resentment towards Evelyn (although my problems with Todd were incredibly well documented), Lomas picked up on it and delved in. I initially tried to say that I hadn’t been thinking of her, but the longer it went on the more Lomas was like ‘look, c’mon now’. He went on to infer from the cards where he believes Evelyn and Todd’s relationship may be progressing, again with almost clinical accuracy. Obviously, people’s relationships shift, so the predictions of ‘this may be happening in the long-term’ haven’t really played out that way – but the short-term predictions were solid. I had another reading a few days later, and after the second reading I realised something. I still wasn’t holding any firm belief that the cards held any significant divine power, but what I was feeling was that the act of tarot reading was helping me think about my issues in ways that I otherwise would not have. I almost found it therapeutic, because it channeled my brain into a specific kind of thinking, and actually led me to think of outcomes. For example, I’d find myself thinking ‘okay, if this played out as it’s being said, how do I feel? What do I do then?’ which is not something I’m generally good at as a rule. I got read again in September, by the same friend, as I was feeling overwhelmed by the world and everything in it, and the cards seemed to be on my side – everything that was coming up was basically saying ‘it’s a tough time but the future is bright for you’, and it genuinely did calm me down, even if for a few hours.

    Fast forward to the present day, and I’ve bought myself a deck. I’ve done maybe three practice reads on myself, and I’m still learning what all the cards mean. I still don’t find myself firmly believing they have any kind of power (despite the numerous correct things they’ve ‘predicted’ in my experience with my friend), but I find them so useful on a self-care, therapeutic, or almost meditative level. Tl;dr – does anybody else feel this way? Is this how it started for some people? I think I kind of want to know if this route into tarot is ‘normal’, or more unorthodox, if that makes any sense.

    • Thanks for sharing your story here, Amombi! We all come to Tarot in different ways and I loved hearing about how you were skeptical at first but found Tarot to be so helpful in calming you down and helping you think about your life differently. I feel like your route to Tarot sounds pretty normal and I’ve met lots of people with similar stories (a friend read for them and it was so helpful that they got interested in it themselves). Good luck to you as you progress on your Tarot journey 🙂

      Cheers,
      Kate

    So funny Kate I got all three of these cards multiple times yesterday while doing my practice readings. I def linked 2 of cups to Christmas, and the 9/wands I thought about boundaries and defending your ground when being around family where touchy subjects can arise. Love you💕I never miss a weekly reading from you. Happy holidays!!!!

  3. Kiyasu Oka says:

    I noticed that both the Knight of Pentacles and the Nine of Wands have a similar color scene, and both are “earthy” (grass… and likely both are the same time of the day)… whereas the Two of Cups is “flowy” (water… and light, shadow, and sand). The first thing that stood out to me about this reading is the “illuminating” effect from the sunlight… some kind of “judgement feeling” behind the scenes, as the two “lovers” enjoy their time and celebrate!! (How fitting for Christmas!) The “judgement” of a lovely time when you awaken to realize the magic of how *staying there* and enjoying yourself can move YOU and your life *forward*, which is a good contrast to the “moving forward” Knight of Pentacles (and how interesting I say this because usually the Knight of Pentacles is this “boring, dull guy” who is basically not moving at all! So I find THIS Knight interesting that he is actually moving XD)

    This reading seems to say that if you “stay there” and enjoy yourself like the two “lovers” or cats are doing in the Two of Cups card, then you will experience a “judgement” for yourself…. beautiful, *illuminating* things will happen like THAT “light of judgement” emerging from the background!

    So, the “illumination” is around or on Christmas where the most beautiful things happen… if you just “stay there” and enjoy. (Forget about your goals, goals, goals if you want to have a *illuminating* week!!!)

    So, in the beginning of the week, as long as you feel grounded and clear-headed (or hearted), moving forward can be very effective. But if you do that near the end of the week, you could be forgetting something and therefore accidentally “over-flaming” things. The same colors, the same grass, but the first card has an “expanding area” and the second card is more “tight”…. like, crowded and “narrow existence.” (The tree seems to make the space of the card “narrow,” like energy being blocked or something…)

    First card: ever-expanding grassland area with wind and freedom! GO FOR IT!! (As long as you feel grounded and be aware of your grounded-ness!)
    Last card: another “earthy” card with the same colors, but with “fire” (Wand) added onto it… almost like saying that if you do too much “earthy” work, and then combine it with your “fire” (passion), you could be forgetting something important about yourself, thus burning yourself (and others) out!!!

    Like, in the beginning, when the grass land and “limitless sky” is “ever-expanding” and “free flowing” like that Knight of Pentacles, that is a good time for it, but if you continue to “make the most of it” for the remaining three days of the week WITH more “productive work” or “moving forward” with your goals, then the “limitless sky” will disappear, and your “fire” of moving forward may burn yourself and the area out. The “limitless, expanding sky” becomes out of sight, and you will see yourself “behind trees” and your world might become “narrow.” In other words: you might have forgotten what other important thing you need — your QUALITY ALONE TIME to simply enjoy your time by yourself and get centered, maybe!

    All in all, the second card sticks out the most; it is a completely different color scene, and the people and the cats in there are “staying there.” Almost like this reading is also saying that if you just “stay there” instead of “moving forward” like earlier in the week, then you can CONTINUE to have that beautiful “illuminating” time of your life, and maybe your “light of judgement” (judgement of light?). By the way, this “judgement” I talk about is nothing to do with anything religious… it is something like, you have an *ephiphany* about something that hits home for you, some kind of realization over something simple. Something timeless, maybe.

    The “light of illumination” from the middle seems to also expand into the ENTIRE week. So, it feels like you can skip the first card and the last card, and this reading can be ALL just Two of Cups as all three cards. Like, the “power” of the week is in the Two of Cups, if you want to have the most beautiful week, ever!

    Best result: enjoy your ENTIRE week and give yourself quality alone time to celebrate life! (But if you spend time with others in Christmas times, try to embbrace as well as you can if it is with people you don’t really want to spend time with, like family.)

    Second best result: be effectively productive during the beginning of the week, and then enjoy yourself on Christmas! (Likely with someone else, depending on how you see it!) Then continue that enjoyment alone for the rest of the week!!

    Just don’t become productive near the end of the week because either 1) the enjoyment of the entire week is enough, or 2) if you did “move forward” like the Knight of Pentacles here in the beginning, then THAT progress you made at that time is already waaaaay more than enough!!

    Enjoy this holiday season!!!

    Cheers, and Merry Christmas!

    P.S. I like the back of these cards…. Looks like a deck made FOR people who don’t want to read Reversed cards as well! Also, this reading looks fitting for me because I am almost done proof-reading my guide book, and had already planned to have an entire week of completely enjoying and celebrating life! So, I really like the message of this week’s reading!
