Is Tarot evil?

This is a big question I get asked frequently: Is Tarot Evil?

According to many religions: yes it is. In my experience: it is not. Ultimately, that is for you to decide.

Religion has borrowed a lot from occult rituals. If you examine the Catholic religion you will find many references to occultism. Easter, the body and blood of Christ and the altar set up are just a few examples.

Catholic Mass Altar Setup

Aside from those facts, religions have also been perpetrators of some horrible abuses from the Spanish Inquisition to the most recent Boston Church scandal. I find it hard to take moral advice from organizations that allow its leaders to abuse children. That’s me though.

Growing Up (TW:abuse)

I grew up Catholic. Weekend mass was the only constant in my young life. I found comfort and stability in the church when I could not find it in my own life. I attended mass, was an altar server and received Confirmation into the Roman Catholic Church. This does not mean I am a saint.

On the contrary, I have strayed on my path. Yet my relationship with God was never so damaged that I stopped having faith.

My devotion to God goes back to being a skinny kid, living in a trailer on a farm in Texas.

My stepdad was a violent alcoholic who enjoyed beating those around him whenever he would drink. It was during one of his rampages that I devoted my soul to God.

I went into my room when I was 6, got on my knees and prayed to God that my stepdad wouldn’t hurt me. I prayed fervently to God, promising to live my life in servitude to It if I was spared the beating.

I was spared and my journey to help further God’s mission began.

Connection to God

From that day on, I had a deep connection to the Highest Power. At different dark points in my life, God even sent messengers to me with messages and warnings.

When I started reading Tarot, I wondered if God would be upset. I wondered if what I was doing was wrong. Recalling the teachings of the church and the words of the congregants: magic is evil.

Then I realized that God has always made it clear to me, when It is displeased with my actions. So I continued to hone my Tarot reading skills.

I have now been reading Tarot for 5 years. In that time, I have pulled myself out of a depression. I have avoided bad business deals. I developed my intuition further. I also began to help others through their difficult periods.

Helping Others

My friends and co-workers heard how I used the Tarot to receive guidance when no one around had any answers. I told them of finding answers to my questions that no one around could relate to.

They listened as I recounted times when my cards warned of shady situations and how those situations ended up manifesting! They were intrigued as I told them how I avoided being caught in a scam.

These stories affected them. They wondered if the Tarot could help them too. But I wasn’t ready to read for others so I waited.

It wasn’t until last year that I started to take on clients.

Since then I have seen people change careers, start new businesses and get control of their lives. All with the guidance provided by the Tarot.

Is Tarot Evil?

I do not believe so. I believe that God wants all of us to use the tools we have available to make the most of our lives.

Ultimately, the answer to the question lies with the individual. Each person must decide what is right for them.

If you are considering consulting a Tarot reader, remember that what you do can remain private. If the only thing stopping you from getting some clear answers to your questions, is other people’s opinions on the method: there is nothing wrong with keeping the reading private.

My Tarot Journey

Iguanas, 30 foot trees and magic: my introduction to Tarot.

Some Tarot readers were gifted their decks by friends or relatives, others sought the Tarot on their own, I needed a Tarot deck for a spell to find an iguana.

Let me start at the beginning of the story.

Have you ever been in a period of your life where a lot of little things start going wrong? Maybe your hours get cut at work? Then your insurance bill goes up a little. Then you hear the car sounding strained. All these small annoyances just harshing your mellow.

I was in a period like that 5 years ago when I discovered the Tarot. My marriage was going through a difficulties. Work was unsteady. My home was in need of repairs. I was feeling a lot of pressure.

Then my iguana ran way.

I had the sliding glass door cracked and she squeezed out. She stood in the backyard 5 feet away from the house.

Every step I took towards her, she would dart further way. Here’s the thing about iguana’s, they are crazy fast! Finally, I lunged at her!

She took off and climbed the neighbors wall. She disappeared into their backyard. 

It was the end of May, in Las Vegas. Being that iguanas are tropical creatures I immediately became distressed. My poor iguana would be exposed to the harsh weather. 

I did what any pet owner would do: I made flyers and went door to door asking if anyone had seen her. No one had.

I could not believe one more thing was going wrong. Out of my frustration, I decided to search for a spell to find my lost pet.

I had never casted a spell before. I had always been interested in magic but never felt compelled to try it. This time, I was ready.

To my surprise, I found a Tarot spell for finding lost pets. I went to my local metaphysical shop and purchased a set of Rider-Waite-Smith cards.

That night, I performed the spell. After the spell was complete, I set my cards aside and went about my business.

The next day came, no word of my iguana. A month would pass, no word of my iguana. Another month passed. Then another month passed. My spell did not work.

Or did it?

In late August 2015, there was a knock on my door. Three young boys stood on my porch excitedly telling me that they had found my iguana!

I quickly put my shoes on, grabbed a towel to carry the iguana and followed them to the tree my iguana was in.

The tree was 30 feet high and my iguana was somewhere around the 20ft mark. Thankfully, the neighbors had a ladder. I climbed up the ladder. At this point, about 15 neighbors had gathered in the street to watch the iguana retrieval. No pressure.

I climbed up 18ft on the shaky ladder and wrestled with my iguana to try and detach her from the tree. After some seriously determined grasping, I was able to carry my iguana back down the tree!

Iggy after the rescue!

So the spell did work!

At this time, I was not yet a fully committed Tarot reader. My deck was mostly there as an ornament.

It wasn’t until my marriage began to dissolve about 6 months later, that I began to use my cards for insight.

The period following this Iguana Caper was the hardest time of my life. It was filled with uncertainty, confusion and sadness. I used the Tarot to navigate my troubled waters and find tranquility. The Tarot offered me guidance and advice when those around me couldn’t understand my situation.

You know how it is, you tell your friends what is going on in your life and they can not relate. It makes any feeling os isolation even more amplified. I found companionship within myself through the use of the Tarot.

I used the Tarot even though it went against my traditional Christian beliefs. I used the Tarot because I felt like Spirit speaks to me through it.

Although my iguana is no longer here with me, my Tarot deck still is. This month I am offering a “Life Check Special” for $10. With this spread, you will find out: where you are at in your life and what you should be doing. For the price of lunch, you can get concrete answers to your questions.

If you can not benefit from this, tell someone who will. There is no reason to remain unsure when tools are available to help guide you to your highest good.

A Witch at Home: Floor Washes

Legit Floor Wash Recipe! Thank you for sharing E. Massey ❤️

E. Massey

I normally do not post or give away any of my personal magickal secrets. However, so many people have asked me what I did upon moving into my new home for cleansing and purification, other than using sage and your typical products. So, I decided to talk about floor washes and for the first time ever post a recipe from my book of shadows.

The use of floor washes is what I would call the tried and true traditional Witchcraft. They are a common part of spiritual cleansing and are usually found in many old-world magick and Conjure traditions. Spiritual floor washes are especially found within the Hispanic and Latin American spiritual cultures, and in Hoodoo/Rootwork and folk magick of the Afro-American cultures. Whereas, the practice of washing an area with a specially prepared herbal mixture will bring out the magickal properties of the herbs…

Raising money for Be Crystal Clear: victims of looting.

On the eve of the New Moon in Gemini (5-22-2020), a gorgeous sound bath came across my instagram feed. The sound healing session was being conducted by a beautiful woman, named Sugar, who radiated love. (Sound Bath Link Here) I was enchanted with her lovely collection, her reassuring words and her soulful playing.

Sugar of Be Crystal Clear and her singing bowls.

Sugar raised the bar for me in my own personal goals. She embodied someone I knew I could strive to be, but had yet to see in the world. Her sound bath inspired me and energized me in a way I had not felt before. It was a blessing to find her.

Then on June 3rd, she posted that her healing center, Be Crystal Clear, had been looted during the protests. (link here)

All of her singing bowls were broken. 😢 Most of her crystals were stolen. Her space destroyed.

The disbelief I felt on that day, to see what had unfolded, is still felt today. Sugar worked 27 years to realize her vision for her healing space. In one evening it was gone. An unjust casualty to circumstance.

A Gofundme has been started to help Sugar rebuild her space. To help reach the goal, I am offering a Past, Present, Future (PPF) Tarot reading for anyone who donates at least $20 to Sugar’s Gofundme. (Link Here) After you send your donation: email, text, or DM me a screenshot and we’ll book your session.

Sugar’s composure & willingness to forgive during this terrible tragedy is so inspiring. I believe we can all come together and help rebuild a lovely space.

Namaste.

Celtic Cross Outlook: Remainder of 2020

An in depth 10 tarot card look at what to expect for the rest of 2020!

The Celtic Cross is one of the most in-depth draws a reader can use. For the querent (the person asking the question), it can be most illuminating!

This has been a crazy year. It doesn’t matter that astrologists knew something would be going down. There is no way we could have been prepared for a worldwide shutdown. As the days get further from Day Zero of the Shutdown, it’s only natural to wonder where we are headed.

I have been using the Tarot along with my Faith in God, to guide my life for the last 5 years. Why should today be any different?

Here is Eternal Tarot’s Celtic Cross Outlook for the remainder of 2020:

Extract of Reading

aka What does this all mean?

Knowing it’s time to move on. 

New beginnings and feeling good about life!

But having a hard time acknowledging blessings due to worry and fear of the unknown. 

Positive news and fortunate meetings have given us reason to celebrate the things we are presently overlooking. 

We have recently learned how to appreciate the small lovely details of life during our time at home due to the coronavirus. 

We are feeling more love towards ourselves and towards our community. Surrounded by loving feminine energy. 

We will need to take note of how efficient we are being with our energy. Self-forgiveness with lots of patience will be important in order to heal. 

The hard work you have been putting in will soon bear fruit. 

There may be some confusion and misunderstandings in your life about what is the right thing to do. Ask more questions. 

All in all: the outlook is good! Things will be looking up! Keep counting your blessings and focus on the good!

Love,

Eternal Tarot

10 Questions To Ask The Tarot

10 Questions To Ask The Tarot

You want to get a reading. But what should you ask?

When I started reading Tarot, I would come across the same decision. Usually. I would do a General Past, Present, Future (PPF). Anyways, let’s say there are a few things you really want to know about.

The Tarot will give you an answer. That’s a given. So you can ask anything really.

But! Will the interpretation make sense? Will it help guide you to your highest potential? That’s a whole other blog post.

10 questions you can ask the Tarot:

  • Will you ever see them again.
  • Should you go in to work today?
  • Are right for you?
  • Is this the time to start my business?
  • Should I go on this vacation or not?
  • What should I look out for?
  • Should I trust them?
  • How is my mom/dad/friend doing? (general wellness checks ONLY)
  • Should I get a pet?
  • Is that person interested in me?

Remember, you can always do a general reading for guidance too.
