A number of similarities exist between Tarot and Eastern philosophy, such as polarity or the force of opposites that we face on the path toward integration. Polarities and their integration towards wholeness is a recurring theme worldwide in various philosophies, as we seek to find our balanced position within the universe. Josephine Ellershaw, author of Easy Tarot Reading, merges these two paths with the Lo Shu Magic Square Tarot spread.

I can’t stress enough how one of the most important components of a successful reading is the question and how it’s asked. The more targeted a question is, the more likely it is the answer will be useful.I really dislike the term “proactive,” but it aptly describes the type of question that will yield the best results. Here are ten examples that you can use singly or in combination: 1. What do I...

It is not known exactly where and when the tarot came into existence. Some believe that it originated in ancient Egypt and was brought to Europe by the Rom, or “Gypsies,” as they traveled to Europe from India. The oracle’s first appearance in Europe appears to have been in the late fourteenth century, probably in Italy, either as a complete seventy-eight card deck or two smaller decks that were...

Winter is a season of rest, when the quiet beauty of a snowy evening brings time for meditation, ritual, and planning. In winter, we are reminded that everything is born, is creative, dies, and is reborn. If we are open to this understanding of winter, then nature's barren months allow us to begin a process of deep healing, and we return to spring with a renewed creative fire. Tarot and Our...

Birds flitting with twigs in their beaks, orange flowers dotting the fields, creeks running with fresh snowmelt: the month of March is rich with new energy and the surge of life. In spring, the ego is given the opportunity to relax and enjoy the renaissance of nature. As the ego awakens, our natural enthusiasm for life flares up anew, and we begin a unique journey at the Vernal Equinox in the...

Le Monde (The World). Corresponding to the number Twenty-One, also to the Hebrew letter Tav. [Note: Waite’s deck places The Fool here (though this card is still numbered Twenty-one, and The Fool is still numbered Zero).

The King of Cups represents a just and good man, or a situation involving justice, intelligence, or honor.  Description Most decks show a mature man, seated on a throne.

Usually this King is not shown wearing armor; if he...

The Two of Wands portends something unexpected will happen or enter the picture, or loss or failure in your new enterprise. Meaning The Two of Wands is not an auspicious card.

If you have to make a choice from two or more options, this is a good spread to use. First place two cards representing the question and the querent’s position in this situation. Then split the deck into as many parts as you have choices, and from each take one card to represent the outcome of that choice. After studying each option and its outcome, using Gestalt techniques, draw an additional...
