Fear of the Death Card #13

This morning I received a phone call from a woman who was interested in a tarot card reading about a relationship with her friend. They’ve known each other for many years, but the friend was jealous, becoming more and more difficult, and was more of a frenemy than a true friend.  I told her to prepare three questions, or topics, for the cards. Her first question can be about the friendship. Then she told me that she was reluctant because she feared the Death card. I told here that if she did get the Death card, then clearly time to end the friendship! Death. It’s over. She...

Lost Crystals

A tarot student asked my advice about crystals. He purchased two amethyst crystals and a clear quartz. He lost one of the amethysts while out with a friend on Halloween weekend. Then during the first week of November, he misplaced the other two crystals. So he did a one-card reading about this, and pulled the Death card. He very rarely gets the Death card so was challenged about how to interpret this. Because of the Death card, the crystals are gone and are not coming back. He won’t find them. But to let go and be respectful, he can psychically tell the...

Lift Your Spirit!

One of my tarot students had a sudden accident and hurt her back when she tripped over her dog (a lovely lab) who always follows her around. This Fire Monkey year is the time of accidents and injuries, not lingering illness like in Snake or Rabbit years. Plus her accident occurred during the recent Mercury retrograde. She selected 3 tarot cards, one each for Body, Mind, and Spirit. Body and Mind were good cards for her, but not Spirit. (This tarot spread for health is on page 164 of Introduction To Tarot.) So her spirit was waning, she was becoming discouraged, and she asked...

The Structure of Tarot: Major, Minor, or Court

Posted by on Sep 11, 2016 in Tarot | 4 comments

Do you sometimes get lost when reading the 78 tarot cards?  When I teach tarot and a student can’t interpret a card, I ask if the card is major, minor, or court. If you can place the card in one of those three categories, then you can determine meaning by following the structure of tarot. There are 22 major arcana cards, 40 minor arcana cards, and 16 court cards. (Arcana means secret, or arcane.) Each tarot card is either major, minor, or court. The 22 cards of the major arcana tell the story of the Fool’s journey. They are a richly...

PREFACE from INTRODUCTION TO TAROT

PREFACE from INTRODUCTION TO TAROT

People keep asking me how I got into reading tarot cards. I had a card reading, it came true, so I was interested! My story is in the Preface from my book INTRODUCTION TO TAROT: I was 17 years old when I first sought answers from the tarot. I inquired about working as a florist to support myself while I studied painting at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The final outcome card was the 8 of cups. It showed a dissatisfied person walking away, wearing a heavy cloak. Because I had already paid a deposit for classes, I ignored the tarot’s prognosis and attended floral arts school for...
