Tarot Reading for March 18 – 24

My cats couldn’t be bothered to make an appearance in this week’s video, so I thought I’d make up for it by reading with a cat themed Tarot deck….Tarot of the Pagan Cats!

Have a good week πŸ™‚

How to Read the Aces in a Tarot Reading

Do the Aces confuse you? Do you draw a blank when they appear in a reading? If so, you’re not alone!

The Aces are kind of like the Court Cards in that they all look very similar to each other. Also, there isn’t really much going on in the Aces.

In the Rider Waite deck, each Ace shows a hand holding the symbol of its suit – pentacle, sword, cup or wand. Other than that, there’s not much excitement happening. So what are you supposed to do with that?

Aces signify a fresh start, a new beginning – but you probably already knew that, right? So in this post, I’m going to show you how to go beyond this so that you can come up with specific tidbits of juicy info and craft a compelling story!

So the next time an Ace shows up in a reading, instead of being all vague like “uh, a new beginning is on the horizon…” you’ll be able to say something much more intriguing and explicit…

Step #1 Get your Aces out!

For this exercise, I want you to rifle through your deck and get the Aces out. Yeah, I know it’s a pain in the ass – but DO IT!!!

Okay, now lay them all out on your table and take a good look.

Step #2 Know your suits!

There are four suits in a Tarot deck – Pentacles, Swords, Cups and Wands. Some decks get creative and rename these suits, but that doesn’t matter – the meanings of the suits remain the same. So if Swords are renamed Daggers or Cups are called Seashells, don’t freak out. It changes nothing.

Get to know each suit and its qualities:

Pentacles = body/health/sex, money, material stuff

Swords = mind, thoughts, communication

Cups = feelings, emotions, relationships

Wands = spirit, passion, creativity, action

Step #3 Combine Suit + Ace

Next time you get an Ace, think new beginnings + suit qualities. Let’s do this with the Ace of Swords…

Universal Waite Tarot, US Games Systems Inc

Ace = beginnings
Suit of Swords = mind, thoughts and communication

When we combine intellect and communication with a fresh burst of newness, what do we get?

  • New, brilliant ideas!
  • A fresh perspective
  • Feeling inspired to write something
  • A surge of fresh mental clarity in which you find a solution to a long-standing problem
  • Having the urge to send someone a text
  • Filling out important paperwork
  • Instigating an ongoing communication with someone
  • Hatching a plan.

Try this exercise with all four Aces and see what you get. Below is a little cheatsheet I made. You can print it off or better yet, make your own.

Print this!

Influence of Surrounding Cards

How you interpret an Ace will also depend on the other cards in the reading. For example, if the Ace of Cups shows up alongside The Lovers, that could signal a new romance. But if that same Ace of Cups shows up with the Three of Swords it could be all about healing a broken heart.

Practice pairing the Aces with other cards and play around with how that changes your interpretation.

Aces = Opportunities & Offerings

I always get excited when an Ace pops up and I always read it in an optimistic light. But really, the Aces just symbolize an opportunity – what you do with that opportunity is up to you. And not all opportunities need to be taken.

Going Deeper….with Symbols!

Look at each Ace and pick out two symbols on each card that stands out to you. You can go into these symbols – almost like you’re communing with them – to get a deeper understanding of the card and it’s meaning.

For example, I got the Ace of Cups in a reading I did for myself this week.

I was thinking maybe it meant gratitude, releasing emotional blocks or being more heart-centered. But I didn’t feel satisfied. My attention kept going to the dove at the top and to me it represents peace.

Then I asked the dove what it’s message was and it said “first you must be at peace with your emotions in order to feel harmonious.” No, I wasn’t high on mushrooms. I actually think up shit like this when I’m stone cold sober!

Experiment & have fun!

Now that I’ve given you a couple of exercises to try out, have fun with it. See if you can incorporate these techniques into your next reading and see where it takes you!

Tarot Reading for March 11 – 17

My sweet boy Henry has joined me yet again for another Tarot reading session….this time with The Dark Mansion Tarot.

Henry was busy sleeping on the window sill in the living room when I rudely woke him up saying “Henry, I want you in my video – people really liked you last week!” Henry didn’t give a shit about being in my video again, but I hauled him over to my reading table and plopped him down. He immediately curled up and went back to sleep!

I hope you have a good week and thank you for watching!!!

My Tarot & Oracle Deck Collection (updated 2019)!

Here’s something that probably won’t surprise you…..I have a lot of Tarot and oracle decks. I used to be hopelessly addicted to buying decks, which led me to amass quite a collection, but then about three years ago I reached my limit and the cravings stopped. It felt like I’d been gorging myself on a Tarot deck buffet and now I was finally sated.

Now I will only buy a deck if I absolutely LOVE it and desperately WANT it, which only happens once in a while (Everyday Witch Tarot, Spirit Keepers Tarot, Mystical Cat’s Tarot and the Cook’s Tarot are all good examples).

However, my collection keeps growing! I am very fortunate to have deck creators gift me their decks in exchange for a review and so even though I’m no longer a Tarot deck shopaholic, I’m still adding to my collection all the time. So I thought I’d share some of the decks I’ve acquired since my last deck collection video!

Decks shown (in order):
Everyday Witch Tarot
Wildwood Tarot
Mystical Cats Tarot
Pastel Tarot
Cook’s Tarot
Dark Mansion Tarot
Spirit Keepers Tarot
The Light Visions Tarot
The Prisma Visions Tarot
Intuitive Tarot
Hip Chick Tarot
Heart & Hands Tarot
Circle of Life Tarot
The Luminous Void Tarot
The Simple Tarot
Mystic Meg Tarot

Keep in mind this isn’t my entire collection – that would be one long, never ending video! These are just my recently acquired decks.

And here are my newest oracle decks…

Decks shown (in order):
Vintage Wisdom Oracle by Victoria Moseley
Animal Allies Oracle cards by Jessica Swift
Conscious Spirit Oracle by Kim Dreyer
Wisdom Keepers Oracle Deck by Rosie Aronson
Spirit Cats by Nicole Piar
Duality Deck by Tanya Bond
The Power Deck by Lynn V Andrews

For all my other deck collection videos, here’s a comprehensive list.

I want to hear from YOU!

What Tarot and Oracle card decks are in your collection? Let me know in the comments below…

The most unethical Tarot spread ever….for Valentine’s Day!

We all know it’s wrong to use Tarot to pry into other’s private thoughts and feelings. But it’s Valentines! So here’s a deliciously unethical spread that breaks all the rules.

Whose your crush? Do you want to plumb the depths of their psyche to discover their kinky secrets? I bet you do! Want to find out the best way toΒ  become irresistible to them? Read on…

It’s my personal belief that we can’t really find out what someone else is thinking via Tarot cards. I just don’t buy it. It’s the main reason I refuse to read about people other than my client when I’m giving readings (I say it’s because of my ethics, but really it’s because I can’t). I just can’t. I’d be making shit up!

So the spread below was created within the spirit of giggly fun and silliness. And maybe also perversion…

Tarot Reading for Feb 11 – 17

For this week’s reading I’m using a classic deck – the Morgan Greer Tarot. Despite the fact that it’s Valentines Day on Thursday, I don’t say anything remotely romantic in this reading. But if it’s romance, you’re looking for, you might like my new Valentine’s Day Tarot spread. Okay, now onto the reading….

Have a great week!

Valentine’s Day Tarot Spread: Ignite Your Love Life!

I know it’s trendy to be all emo say “I hate Valentine’s Day!” but you know what? I fucking love it. I love heart shaped chocolates and the heart shaped boxes they come in. I love flowers, stupid frilly lingerie and the color pink.

What I don’t love is bouquets of red roses. I once dated guy who loved to buy me bouquets of red roses like it was this big deal and he was so amazing for doing it but then he’d go and act all paranoid and controlling, like an insecure jerk. So in my books a dozen red roses = asshole.

I decided I wanted to create a new Valentines Day Tarot spread this year – it’s pink, it’s loaded with hearts and it’s for EVERYONE – regardless of whether you’re in a relationship or not. And if you have absolutely no interest whatsoever in attracting a partner, just substitute erotic life for love life, because we can all have an erotic life, right? I hope so!

Have a fabulous Valentine’s Day and don’t eat too many heart shaped chocolates!
