Last week I was so excited to learn that Amazon had launched in Mexico - we can now order books without having to pay ridiculous shipment fees. To celebrate, I bought myself a new tarot deck!
The deck is adorable: The Everyday Witch by Deborah Blake. The pictures make you feel like you're in a storybook. Below you'll see a few images of cards, the artwork is stunning and the book is fabulous too.
I tend to read tarot intuitively, viewing the images as if they were scenes in a children's book with images and no words. This lets you intuition speak when you connect with the characters and how they feel. This particular deck makes this approach easy, and we can also turn to the book for help if we need clues.
What Can Tarot Cards Tell Us?
There are several ways to work with tarot cards. I always begin by clearing a new deck with white light and intending for it to connect with my Higher Self.
Before beginning a reading, I always ground myself, call on my angels and spirit guides and surround myself with violet light to enhance my intuition.
With that done, we can try:
Asking For Guidance: We can think about a situation and ask for guidance, intending for the tarot cards to tell us about our present circumstances and any considerations that we may not be aware of. This helps us make intuitive decisions, though its always good to check with your Heart and see how it feels. We bear with the consequences of our choices; the cards help, but our own instincts take the lead.
Divination: Essentially, here we ask about the future. I personally have not done this as often because I believe our decisions influence the future, but if we have specific questions such as "when can I expect a job interview" it helps. In these cases, I always ask how we can best navigate the situation.
Creating Your Future: If we are familiar with the cards and what they represent, we can also use them as vision boards, intending for the scenes to unfold as laid out on the cards. Always specify that you want 'this or something better' because the universe is crazy creative =)
We can combine this with the manifestation tools in the 7th & 8th chapters of my Chakra Healing & Magick book! Try it for yourself, and tell us how it goes!
