Managing Difficult Times using the Tarot.

Over the past few days, I have talked about how the Tarot helped me make it through the most challenging time of my life.

My marriage was dissolving, my family was being separated and my home displaced. Everything in my world was crumbling and I found peace through my faith in God and His divine guidance through the Tarot.

Tarot 101

The Tarot consists of 78 cards. These cards depict ancient archetypes that are prevalent throughout the human experience. A tarot reader channels messages from the cards, then “reads” the cards to determine their meaning. This is also referred to as the Interpretation.

Where is the Tarot reader channeling the message from?

This is a good question and I think it varies from reader to reader.

Personally, I pray to God during each draw and ask God to guide my hand. I pray to God for guidance and truly believe that I am channeling God’s will. I ask God to guide my Querent to their highest good. As I mentioned in my previous post, God has sent messengers to me so I believe that the Highest Power is with me.

Different issues require different solutions.

When using the Tarot, there are endless spreads and draws you can conduct. Before doing a draw, I ask myself what it is I want to know.

It would be silly to do a 10 card draw when what I wish to know is something as simple as: Should I go on vacation this weekend?

Below I will go over some standard techniques and procedures for receiving accurate messages from the Tarot.

The Daily Draw

Can you do a Tarot draw everyday? Yes! If you’re new to Tarot reading, I would even recommend that you do a Daily Draw to learn the cards.

The Daily Draw is an excellent tool when dealing with a lot of uncertainty. The draw serves as a reminder that each day is a new beginning. Doing a daily draw can help prepare you for the individual challenges each day brings.

When I started reading Tarot, I would draw one card every morning. As I shuffled the cards, I would ask what the theme for the day would be.

Over on my Instagram, I do an Energy Read of the Day drawing one card for each day of the month. Follow me to see what energy each day hold.

The question for the daily draw can be tailored to suit your needs. If you are feeling uneasy, you can ask for advice on how to overcome your day. If you want to know what to expect at work, you can ask about the environment at work. The Daily Draw is a great way to become familiar with the meaning of the Tarot cards and to gain insight on how your day will unfold.

Specific Questions

We’ve all been there, waiting on an answer from someone else. The minutes become hours, the hours turn into days. All the while, we think on the possible outcomes of each decision as we check our phone for a message, just one more time. We go over in detail each life that will be lived depending on the answer. Our lives at a standstill.

Perhaps you are waiting to hear back from a client? Or you are wondering if that date you went on will materialize into something more? Or you are curious if you should sign up for summer classes or wait until fall semester? These questions all have answers that can change your life in varying degrees. What if the agony of waiting for a response could be side stepped?

Whatever the question, the Tarot can help give you some peace of mind. Because waiting for an answer can really drive a person mad.

Past, Present, Future (PPF)

This classic draw covers the past, present and future of a situation. Let’s say you keep having issues at work with your manager. Every time you work with them, some drama happens. You have had enough of the abuse and are exploring your options. In this scenario, you could employ a PPF to see where you stand in your work life.

I like to interpret the cards as: Past (where you are coming from), Present (where you are at) and Future (where you are going). With these three dimensions, the Querent can get a solid idea of what needs to be done.

Monthly Outlooks

Personally, I like to know what is coming. I used to live with surprises, now I prepare for them. Doing a monthly outlook 5 card draw is a great way to see what kind of challenges you will face in the month to come.

Think back on a challenging time in your life. Did you notice that sometimes the same things would keep coming up? Almost as if the Universe was trying to tell you something. Well, it was.

Now you don’t have to be uncertain. You can consult the Tarot and know for sure what issues you need to focus on. Personal growth is an everlasting endeavor comprised of ups and downs. Give yourself a hand up during the tough times by staying alert to upcoming challenges.

Deep Dives

Finding out your boyfriend got a new job in a new city, when you just got accepted to the local University. Contemplating starting your dream business. Discovering suppressed trauma. These are all situations that require deep analysis.

The Celtic Cross is an ancient and powerful 10 card spread that will leave no area of the issue hidden.

I absolutely love the Celtic Cross. When I started out reading Tarot, I could only perform a Celtic Cross draw once every 3 months due to my inexperience with interpretation of the cards. Now, I pull this spread out whenever I encounter a challenge that is unfamiliar.

This spread goes over the issue, the reason why it’s happening, how you feel about it, what the future holds and the outcome of the whole thing just to name a few aspects.

If you have to absolutely know everything about a particular issue, this is the spread for you.

Forewarned is…

Forearmed.

There are times when the cards haven’t said what I wanted to hear. It happened today actually.

No, that job is not right for you.

No, that relationship is not right for you.

No, that career is not right for you.

Although it wasn’t what I wanted to hear, these honest answers allowed me to move on. The foreknowledge allowed me to accept the possibility of not having what I wanted, then make changes accordingly. The disappointment was softened by a refocus of direction.

Disclaimer

The Tarot predicts the future as it stands if we change nothing. We are creatures of free will and in charge of our destinies. If we change one small thing, the future changes. When the Tarot is read, nothing is written in stone.

Is Tarot evil?

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.
