First things first:
There, now that the mood has been set, let’s talk Tarot. I’ve done a three card reading, which is less in depth than a Celtic Cross, but I find a three card reading better suited for a daily reading and a Celtic Cross better suited for when I have a specific question. (I’ve actually written about the Celtic Cross spread before.) A three card reading can be used to answer questions that are open for interpretation. Who I was, who I am, who I will be.
Who I Was
I pulled The Magician, which is a Major Arcana and represents self-empowerment and action. Considering this is my past, this is pretty easy for me to figure out. I’ve written before about not feeling capable, never mind having any sort of talent, as a writer. Its something I struggled with throughout the entirety of writing Ascendent, and its something I still struggle with. But, I still managed to finish it.
Who I Am
For this, I pulled the Ten of Cups which represents positive energy from completing your goals. There’s not much I can say about this beyond the obvious. Except that I hope if you’re skeptical about Tarot and you happen to come across this, you might become slightly less so. I believe in it, so it is true to me. It’s not any different from religion.
Who I Will Be
For my future, I pulled The Tower, another Major Arcana. Before I get into what this means for me, I want to say that I truly don’t believe any card is malignant. Sometimes life is difficult, and sometimes we need hard truths. The Tower represents upheaval of some kind. Whether it be of your own making or outside of your control, you will come out stronger on the other side and experience a personal breakthrough. I hope this means I will be able to get past what an asshole my mind can be. Even just a little.
I hope I’ve conveyed Tarot well, and maybe inspired someone to try it. If you do, don’t get caught up in a right or wrong way to do it. There’s no wrong way to do Tarot, just follow your intuition. Personally, I use it as meditation, because traditional meditation doesn’t work for me. I can’t keep my mind still long enough for it to be relaxing.
As always, thanks for reading and let me know what you think in the comments. Bye!
