Keeping a Tarot Journal, Part 1

Most tarot teachers and authors advise keeping a tarot journal. I don’t know about you, but I love journaling and especially combining journal keeping with tarot. This entry begins a series of articles that explore what various authors and teachers say about journaling and tarot. This first foray is from one of my favorite authors, […]

10 Practical Questions to Ask the Tarot

Many people in the tarot community know Ruth Ann and Wald Amberstone. They are the founders of the Tarot School and the very popular annual conference known as The Readers Studio. With two excellent books under their belts, they are also successful authors. One of their books, Tarot Tips, is an excellent book (useful and […]

Here Comes the Sun

Of The Sun card from The Fey Tarot, Riccardo Minetti writes: “…the Sun is an Arcana that by nature is without any kind of ambiguity. It has no shadows, no veils, no half-measures. The sun represents all truths, all certainties…the joy of fullness and of security, when no doubt troubles the soul.” When this card […]

Two Spreads

Ruth Ann and Wald Amberstone, the hosts of the Readers Studio, work hard to ensure that attendees can absorb as much as their hearts desire. If one wished, one could attend various activities from 8 am until 11 pm. Not everyone does that, of course. But some are determined to take advantage of every opportunity. […]

Three-Card Readings

Robert M. Place is the creator of several decks, including the Alchemical Tarot and the Buddha Tarot as well as the author of The Tarot: History, Symbolism, and Divination. He shared 2 techniques with the group. The first focused on energy flow within a three-card spread. The second was a large 21-card spread that built […]

Playing With The Cards

There are two areas that I plan on exploring rather intensively over the next few months and I’d love to hear about any adventures you may be having with similar ideas. Ever since I learned Josephine Ellershaw’s Life and Anchor Reading in Easy Tarot, I’ve been bewitched by the idea she presents. This reading is […]

Creating Spreads

Do you know people who love to make jewelry but don’t wear it, love to bake but don’t eat sweets, or something like that? I am that way with spreads. I really love creating spreads; I don’t mean the on-the-spot specific spreads, but more general spreads. I make them up, test them, use them a […]

Structure but no Meaning

During my “I don’t need no stinkin’ spreads” phase, I threw cards down in a long line or in several shorter lines in rows. I looked at the cards and often had no idea of how to start interpreting the reading. If any of you do practice this and can either explain or point me […]

Consistency & Hobgoblins

Who was it that waxed pithily about consistency and hobgoblins and small minds? Well, I’m sure someone else came up with a snappy comeback about inconsistency and flightiness. In my twenty years of playing with tarot, I cannot claim any sort of consistency in any area. Not one. And that includes my practices regarding spreads. […]

The Hourglass Spread

One of my all time very favorite spreads was published on the now defunct Tarot Passages website (the site www.tarotpassages.com is still up and filled with great information but has not been updated for quite a while). This spread, called The Hourglass Spread, was created by Teresa Michelsen, author of The Complete Tarot Reader and […]
