Page of swords

Daily Draw: Page of Swords- Energy, Ambition, Ideas

What do I need to know or focus on today? The page of swords is a court card and court cards can be difficult for readers to interpret when they first start out. Court cards can represent people in your life that embody the energy of the card, or they can represent you. In the case of pages, they could also represent messengers and/or messages headed your way. You and your reader should work...
The sun tarot card

Daily Draw: Here Comes the Sun!

What do I need to know or focus on for today? Here comes the sun, the 19th card of the Major Arcana. The sun card is pretty much universally regarded as one of the most positive cards in the tarot. It’s bright, it’s vibrant, and it radiates positivity and good vibes. What a fabulous way to start a Monday!  The Card In the card we see a child wearing only a whimsical crown of flowers...
New moon Libra spread

Daily Draw: New Moon in Libra

The Astrology For those out of touch with moon phases, the new moon is when the sun and moon are aligned which is why we can’t see the moon in the night sky. For astrologers and astrology enthusiasts, this means the sun’s energy and the moon’s energy are aligned in the same house and this month it's Libra. So, if you are born today, you’re a double Libra. New moons also give all zodiac...
tarot death card

Daily Draw: Death and Transformation

What do I need to know or focus on today? The death card is one of the most feared cards in the tarot, and is frequently used in movies or TV to indicate a literal death. I think the majority of tarot readers would tell you that your imminent demise is highly unlikely, but that doesn’t stop death from filling us with a sense of impending doom. If I’m not dying, then what is?  The card...
Tarot card high priestess

Daily Draw: Trust your gut!

What do I need to know or focus on today? The high priestess is such an iconic image there was even an episode of Xena: Warrior Princess in which they recreated the scene depicted above. This is a card that a lot of tarot readers either identify with, or is a personal favorite, and I think it’s because the high priestess is a conduit for secret and sacred knowledge, as well as an empathetic...
tarot card 3 of wands reversed

Daily Draw: Excitement and Delays

What do I need to know or focus on for today? Today I drew the three of wands reversed. I frequently draw wands when I read for myself, and it came up in my new moon in Virgo reading back in August too, but I know this keeps popping up because of my enthusiasm in starting Veil and Vow Tarot. The card In Pamela Coleman Smith's depiction, we see a person in a mostly red cloak, surrounded by three...
New Moon in Virgo Tarot Spread

Daily Draw: New Moon in Virgo Spread

A little late, but here it is. This is where it all started. This is the new moon in Virgo spread I learned about through Biddy Tarot on August 30th. According to Brigit, the new moon in Virgo was the perfect time to ask the cards about mastery of skills and offering of expertise to others.  I’d been studying the cards non-stop and practising with daily draws on myself and on anyone within my...
Tarot Card The Tower

Fear and The Tower

    The past few years have been rough for me, emotionally speaking. My husband and I suffered multiple pregnancy losses, I gave up a teaching career that had become fused with my life to raise our son, and I felt adrift while my postnatal hormones totally wrecked my system. My life lay in shambles. I didn’t know it at the time, but my life was embodying the energy of The Tower...

What questions should I ask my tarot reader?

That’s an excellent question. The best questions for your tarot reader are open ended. I know we’re tempted to ask yes/no questions like, will I find true love? Will I get that new job I applied for? Am I going to win the lottery? I don’t know. What have you been doing to look for true love? How did your interview go? Did you buy a lottery ticket?  Tarot is best used when questions...

What’s Tarot? And how is this a profession? Seems woo-woo to me…

    I hear you, friend. Let me see if I can clear a few things up. What’s Tarot? Tarot cards are a lot like normal playing cards. Instead of 52, there are 78 (22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana). Tarot started out as a game commissioned in the 15th century by Filippo Maria Visconti, ruler of the Duchy of Milan, probably for his daughter Bianca Maria Visconti’s wedding. Tarot...
