Reading Tarot- Where do I start?

That’s an excellent question, and there’s no better time to learn about reading tarot than when you’re socially distancing in a pandemic. It can be overwhelming dipping your toe into the tarot pool.

Covid 19 Update

OMG 2020. Omg… I’d ask the cards what’s next, but I don’t want to know. I’d rather live by the “no fate” philosophy of Terminator 2, “There is no fate but what we make”. That being said, I’ve been trying to make the best of Covid 19. I started Tarot Treks which were little articles on the meanings of the cards, but I lost steam. Do let me know if you’d like to see more, but...

Magick is Real

“Duh,” say the witches as everyone else rolls their eyes.Hear me out. When I dive into a subject, I dive pretty deep before coming up for air to share my findings, and the deeper I dive into the “woo woo” arts, the more I think it’s all real. I know I’m losing people already, so let me clear some things up. I’m a scientifically minded person. I listen to the scientific community,...

Tarot Treks: Knight of Cups

Get a load of the hottie bo-body that is the knight of cups. What do you see when you look into this dreamboat’s eyes?   I brought you some coffee…Swoon.

Tarot Treks: Page of Cups

The page of cups is a court card. Court cards are the pages, knights, queens, and kings of each suit and can represent the energy of a situation, people in your life who reflect that energy, or in the case of pages, can be messages or messengers. What do you see as you look at the page of cups? Kiss me you fool! An escapee from a renaissance fair is bemused by the fish in their cup. “Who put...

Tarot Treks: Ten of Cups

Every time I see the ten of cups I hear the song Everything is Awesome by Tegan and Sara (feat. The Lonely Island) from The Lego Movie. You’d be surprised how many people have no idea what I’m talking about when I mention it in readings. If you are one of those people, do yourself a favor and give it a listen.  It slaps! The ten of cups is the happy family card! It’s the card I drew...

Tarot Treks: The Nine of Cups

Check out the spread here in the nine of cups! What do you see, friends? So much yellow Get a load of this guy! It’s wine time up in here! It’s like we’ve walked into a private wine tasting party and they are pumped to have us. The figure is wearing fine robes and a jaunty hat. I’ve been to parties like this and they are sumptuous. This card is depicting what will surely be a night of...
Eight of cups

Tarot Treks: The Eight of Cups

It’s about to get all emotional up in here with the eight of cups. Peep this scene- what do you see today? We was hitchhiking down a long and lonesome road… A figure with the fashion sense to have their kicks match their coat is blowing this pop stand. Their posture looks defeated as they head for the hills in the dead of night. Even the moon looks on as if to say ‘oof’ or ‘bruh’....
seven of cups

Tarot Treks: The Seven of Cups

Welcome back to Tarot Treks, friend! The seven of cups is one of the trickier cards to interpret because there’s a lot going on in the imagery. Just look at it! I mean… right?! A shadowy figure in the foreground stares into the clouds and sees many cups filled with definitely not beverages. There’s a face, a glowing body in a sheet, a snake, a castle, some jewels, a laurel wreath in a...

Tarot Treks: The Six of Cups

Tarot Treks takes us to a touching scene in the six of cups. What do you see, reader? Even from his earliest days, Tim was a ladies man… A child is giving flowers to another child. The six of cups is one of the few cards in the RWS deck that depicts children. (Stay tuned to find out what the others are). Maybe the kids in the six of cups are siblings taking a break from fighting to get along...
