Did you know that every Tarot reader has a distinct Tarot reading personality?
Some readers read with a tell-it-like-it-is bravado while others are adept at gently holding a space for their querent. Some readers love to be dramatic while some are more laid back. Some readers love to inject humour into their readings while some prefer to exude a more therapeutic, self-helpy vibe.
I created this Tarot spread to help you explore your Tarot reading personality, discover your special reading gifts and identify areas that need a little work. So make yourself a cup of tea, give your deck a shuffle and give this spread a go!
New year, new spread! Here’s my Tarot spread for the year ahead….
The start of a new year is always a special time to do a reading (it’s up there with Halloween and Birthday readings!) and it’s a great time to get clear on what you want to focus on, change, create, release and explore in the upcoming year.
So make a pot of tea, give your deck a shuffle and let’s get to it!
Do the spread as is and after you’ve turned all the cards over and read them, go through your deck and consciously choose a Tarot card that you’d like to embody throughout the year.
You can place this card (or images of this card) around your living and working space and it will act as a reminder of what you’d like to focus on this year.
Instead of pulling a card for the first card position what will I create this year?, ask yourself what do I want to create this year? and journal about it.
Once you’re clear on it, ask your deck what will help me do this? Draw one card. Then, ask what could get in the way? Draw a second card. Move on to the next one – ask what do I want to explore this year? and repeat the same process.
*You will do this for all the card positions in the spread except for these two: what will help me the most? and what could get in the way? – for these you can just draw one card to answer the question.
At the end, consciously choose a Tarot card that you’d like to embody throughout the year. This card will represent your ideal self in 2023.
Wishing you a Happy New Year and all the best in 2023 ♥
Halloween always feels like New Years to me – a chance to start fresh and set new intentions. It’s also a good excuse to bust out my Tarot deck and do one of those in-depth readings where I light candles, lay out crystals and get super witchy!
Hope your Halloween is cozy, magical and full of Tarot adventures 🙂
Summer is almost here (only 5 days away!) and since last Summer was kind of heavy and drab, I have high expectations for this Summer.
I’ve spent the last 12 months pumping iron in my basement like I’m training for the apocalypse. To reward myself, I bought myself a scandalously skimpy bikini that I actually plan to wear… in public (!)
And I realized I was craving a Summer themed Tarot spread that was fun, lighthearted and a little bit sexy, so I came up with this…
In the comments below, let me know: what are you most looking forward to this Summer? xoxo
Warning! The 4 Tarot spreads that I’m about to share just might make a Valentine’s Day fan out of you! Believe it.
Valentine’s Day – you either love it or hate it.
For me, Valentine’s is synonymous with trying out fun Tarot spreads, gorging myself on heart shaped chocolates and guilt tripping my husband into doing romantic things that he hates, like not reading the newspaper while we eat dinner together.
Whether you dread or anticipate Valentines (or just don’t give a f*ck), I’ve got four fun Valentine’s Day Tarot spreads for you to try:
Awaken Your Inner Sex Goddess!
This one’s my fave because it doesn’t matter where you’re at relationship wise, you can always up the ante in the sexy department…
It’s all pretty self explanatory, but there’s a couple of card positions I want to explain more:
Card #5 (The HEART of the matter) – This card will tell you how to connect with your heart and create more love and less fear in your life. It will also give you some ideas as to what is central and most important in your life right now.
Card #7 (What needs to be SEEN) – This is usually something that you aren’t fully aware of, yet is holding you back in some way. For example, I got the Five of Pentacles in this position, which I read as my tendency to isolate myself.
This card doesn’t have to be something that’s holding you back, though – it’s just something you need to be aware of.
Have fun with this spread! I hope you get lots of wonderful ideas, insights and inspiration ♥
Staying inside for long periods of time can be a blessing or a curse (usually both!) because it forces us to confront ourselves. Sort of.
There’s still The Internet and the myriad of entertainment possibilities like TV shows, movies, podcasts, porn, video games, books, picking fights with one’s husband, etc, that can serve as glorious distractions.
BUT….when you can no longer venture outside, eventually you must venture inside. And what better way to do it than with a juicy-fun Tarot spread?
So dust off your Tarot deck, light some smelly incense and let’s get witchy…
We all know the Court Cards can be a challenge. They’re kind of boring, nothings happening in them and they all look the same. But I discovered a funny way to get to know them (and remember them!) and I think you might just like it…
Have you ever noticed that some cards in the Tarot are kind of similar? Like the Two of Cups and The Lovers? Or The Emperor and the King of Swords?
I call these similar cards sister cards and in this post I tell you what it means when a pair like this shows up in your reading and how studying the “sister cards” can help you deepen your understanding of Tarot.
This Tarot spread collection has spreads for special occasions like birthdays, Christmas and Valentines and weird stuff like a special spread for cat lovers. Plus, there’s even Tarot spreads that you will actually want to try, trust me 😉
