Using Signposts

This is a good technique if you are reading for yourself or for someone who is willing to be interactive with you and the cards. I’ve been working with the idea of adding signposts to my readings in various ways. I call them signposts because they mark something specific that you are looking for in […]

Helpful Techniques

Here is a round up of useful tarot techniques that I’ve written about in the past. I’ve been writing for a long time and was surprised by some of the entries I’d written but forgotten about: Jumping Cards Using the Aces Tarot Journals (part 2, but with a link to part 1) Outcome Cards   […]

Engaging Life with Tarot

Tarot Face to Face (available HERE) is a clever book about using the cards in everyday life. This accomplishes two things: deepens your understanding of the cards and deepens your connection with life. Many of the techniques focus on how to use the cards to help others engage life. Some are for self-reflection. Others are […]

One Card Tarot Reading With a Twist

Last weekend I was at the Detroit Area Tarot Intensive, where I presented along with Dan Pelletier, co-owner of the Tarot Garden and knower-of-many-fascinating-things. When attending conferences, one expects to learn a lot during the actual classes or workshops. But sometimes things are learned at other times, like while sharing a meal. Dan taught us […]

Cards as Questions

A few weeks ago, I was honored to be one of the speakers at the annual Tarosophy Tarot Conference in Keswick, England. Here is a photo of the speakers: The third woman from the right, with the long blond hair, is Kim Huggens, author of Tarot 101 (a really fine book!). You can learn more […]

Ethics by the Majors

It is based on his technique What Would the Majors Do described here: http://www.llewellyn.com/journal/article/572 I was thinking about Tarot and Ethics. I was also thinking about how, if you lay the Majors out in three rows of seven (not […]

Card A Day (with a Twist)

On Facebook I belong to a fun tarot group called Tarotholics Anonymous. The other day Tiffany Crosara shared an exercise that her friend Patricia Finney taught her. It is very simple: Draw a card in the morning, but don’t look at it, put it away. At the end of the day, note any interesting events […]

Reversed Card Techniques

James Ricklef’s Tarot Tells the Tale is well-known for its collection of entertaining and instructive readings done for literary characters. They really are effective learning tools. Because they are the main focus, people might forget or overlook the fact that this book is also a great general “beginner” book. Before delving into the readings, James […]

Special Purpose Tarot Cards

As many of you know, I love tarot spreads. Mostly I love inventing them. And reading about them. And sometimes even using them. I like shaking things up a bit, so I like to add little something extras to my readings. Like what, you ask? Well, I’ll save those for another time (I’m polishing and […]

Learning Objectivity

One of the things I’ve been working on lately in my tarot practice is detachment. I’ve discovered that when I am detached from the outcome of the reading (in many ways and on many levels), then my readings are most inspired. Lately, I’ve not been looking at my client at all, just the cards, and […]
