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.

Celtic Cross Outlook: Remainder of 2020

Celtic Cross Outlook: Remainder 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

The Celtic Cross

The Celtic Cross

As a practitioner of cartomancy and energy work; I believe in individualism. I will explain what the Celtic Cross Spread is, what it means to me, and the method that I employ when doing this reading. If you are familiar with a different way, that’s groovy too. Life is so vast, not one path is the path for all. 

The Celtic Cross is seen in A. E. Waite’s “The Pictorial Key to the Tarot” published in 1910. Mr. Waite claims to have learned about the spread from private individuals throughout England, Scotland and Ireland according to Juliette Wood in her essay “Secret Traditions in the Modern Tarot: Folklore and the Occult Revival.” 

What I certainly know, is that this spread is popular! It has some variations here and there but mostly sticks to the same components. Such as: 

  1. Heart of the Matter.
  2. Cross or Blockage
  3. Root
  4. Recent Past
  5. Attitudes and Beliefs
  6. Future
  7. You
  8. Your Environment
  9. Hopes and Fears
  10. Outcome

10 cards to really see every aspect of a question. Nothing left hidden.

This spread is excellent when you want to know how something started, why it started, what will happen, what you can do and how it will end. In other words, when you want to know everything.
