Have you ever noticed that someone does not necessarily have to be book-smart to be a good lover? Well, the same is true with the tarot. Sometimes the more we know, the worse we read. If you want to read more creatively, more psychically, you need to ditch the books, risk making a fool of yourself, and get intimate with your deck.
Keep a tarot journal. The cards really started to talk to me after I started writing in a journal. There were a lot of awkward silences and short entries at first but as I got more secure my intuitive voice got louder and the entries got longer. And I started to make some amazing intuitive connections.
Setting the Mood
Going For It
Tristine Rainier and Anai's Nin's The New Diary helped me see how psychologically healing writing in a journal can be. We shy away from doing it consistently because it imparts clarity. Some of what we see when things get clear makes us want to go right back to sleep. But writing will help you deepen your connection to the divine and introduce you to your authentic self, so fear not: you won't be waking up alone.
Dance and Dancer
This spread can help you attune to your deck and strengthen your connection to its inner energies.
Within each set of three cards, the first card represents what you as the reader bring to the tarot, and the second card symbolizes the energies of the deck. The third card suggests the way the two work together.
At the same time, each set of three cards represents a basic elemental force in the tarot. Cards 1-3 show the earthy, grounding energies, while cards 4-6 symbolize fire and action. Cards 7-9 represent the intellect and air, and cards 10-12 emphasize water and emotions.
