The Words on the Wheel of Fortune

One thing many students of tarot find fascinating is learning what some of the mysterious symbols on the cards mean. During the Renaissance, when the tarot was invented, people were largely illiterate and were therefore very literate in symbol recognition. Their churches told the stories of their faith in stained glass and granite images. These […]

So Right It’s Wrong

Recently, James Ricklef asked several regular users of Tarot how they think giving readings with the cards actually works. He published the answers on his blog in two posts located HERE and HERE. In his posts he begins by sharing his own theory and that of Robin Wood. He also shares the beliefs of Rachel […]

My Favorite Spread for Over a Decade

In 2001, Rachel Pollack published a spread in the Llewellyn Tarot calendar. I fell in love with it immediately and have loved it for over 10 years now. It is a unique spread that uses all the Major Arcana cards. It gives you an overview of your spiritual journey and provides so much insight. Although […]

A Reading by Starlight

We began this month with the Star card from the Book of Shadows Tarot, the card that in that deck represents Imbolc. As we carry the gentle energy of that card forward, I thought it would be nice symmetry to end with a reading based on the Star. The spread is from tarot star Rachel […]

How Does Tarot Work?

I cut my tarot teeth on 78 Degrees of Wisdom by Rachel Pollack. Ever since, I’ve waited for what I thought of as her “sequel” to be published. It has finally happened and is called Rachel Pollack’s Tarot Wisdom: Spiritual Teachings and Deeper Meanings. Isn’t that title divine? The book is, too. Every word of […]

Tarot Spreads

Welcome to April! This month, we’ll move on to something fresh and new. Instead of looking at the cards, we’ll focus on how we use the cards. That’s a long way of saying: April is Spreads Month! But just one last note about the Hierophant. Studying a card from various decks is a fun and […]
