It is interesting that over the years I have not lost my passion for the tarot, even though I am someone with a short attention span who loses interest quickly, I seem to have met my match. I read tarot, I teach tarot plus I often get a new deck & read blogs or books to get new angles, I also love speaking to other readers to see their interpretation, sometimes I see their point of view and adopt it other times I just can’t see what they see.
I got into the tarot when I was 20 but it was not a new area, my Step-Mother reads playing cards so I was familiar with the idea of using cards, also having read as many books linked to the esoteric as I have done, it was not new or scary. I bought various decks before I found ‘the one’ but once I discovered that, there was no stopping me!
The good thing with the tarot is there are so many layers to the cards and each layer is its own huge subject that I do not believe you can EVER know all there is to know about the tarot. There is the rich symbology within most decks, I struggle with the Marseille deck as it is too basic and so does not sing to me but anything pictorial and I am off! With symbology we as the reader must construct our own reference library to help us read but it such a huge subject and Spirit will use our memories, experience and interpretation to give us the code we need.
Once you have mastered the symbology there is the Numerology, this is another modality which has many layers with new dimensions being revealed all the time: Soul Plans, Soul Purposes, Past Lives etc. Not really into numbers? Then look at the Astrology of Tarot.
The suits of the minor arcana are all representative of the Zodiac signs and their personalities, with a wealth of knowledge available which again is as deep as you wish to dip.
Am not an expert on any of these areas, yet I am able to read for my clients with confidence, accuracy and authority so don’t allow the many layers of the tarot to deter you from learning it. Instead embrace the tarot and learn the aspects which resonate for you, letting go of that which does not.
My passion has now encompassed teaching, so if you would like to learn how to interpret the tarot, just contact me via the websites Contact Me facility.
