Which is the Most Important Card in the Tarot deck?

What do you reckon? Which is the one card, or perhaps 2 or 3, that are most important? Perhaps the Fool and the World- containing the entire major arcana journey with in them? Perhaps the 4 aces, representing all 40 cards of the minor arcana? Maybe the kings- showing mastery over the 4 suits? My experience leads me to believe that the most important cards are different for each of us, and they are the cards we either hate, just don't get, or overlook. Because these cards tell us something very important about ourselves- and in the end that is the most valuable way to use Tarot, for self knowledge. "Hate". A strong word, and lots of people tell me "I don't hate any card, they all have a stren

Tarot & shadow work- delving deeper

Connecting with the shadow I have written several blogs exploring how Tarot can be used to access shadow work (blocks, information, memories, promises made to self, self-limiting beliefs, habits ignored & forgotten by the logical left brain) This is life changing, empowering work. But I urge caution. Tread slowly, give yourself time to adapt – it can be very difficult. It is likely we all have shadow issues, times of stress and difficulty that caused us to freeze emotionally, push things to one-side. Then our life is built around these black shadows, especially relationships- friends, family, partners. To mend those shadow issues is to change who you are at core, and this can have a ripple e

Fortune Telling tarot- how I learnt to love telling the future.

Does Tarot foretell the future? Can the future be predicted? Is it ethical to foretell the future? For anyone involved in tarot, the complexities of "fortune telling" has to be considered at sometime. My opinions have changed over time. When I first started professionally I was quite worried about the responsibility of the sowing the seeds of future possibilities in a clients mind. And yet even when I did readings clearly grounded in guidance & counselling- some cards hinted at future possibilities and to ignore them seemed strange. I was particularity challenged when a client came to me very upset about a prediction another Tarot reader had offered concerning her health, and the future hap

One Tarot card to end the madness

Are you like me, do you find life (or to be more precise your mind) just gets whirled up into a state of chaos, anxiety, and sheer madness? (Here is the 2 of wands, Druid Craft Tarot) I can start the day clear, focused, and knowing exactly what I want to achieve. And how to achieve it. Then life, children, fear, exhaustion, hormones, husband- or some other life issue gets in the way. I find my thoughts scattered, and I start to get lost in a swirl of useless business. I am sure we are all different in how we step out of focus and into madness- Whether you procrastinate (you tube, box sets, daytime T,V,) Tidy & organise (many times I have sorted my kitchen cupboards rather than write a diffic

How does Tarot work? And could it help you?

How does Tarot work? There are several different ways; Tarot reflects your unconscious, mapping out the future you are creating by the beliefs & expectations you hold in your unconscious. This is a powerful way of working because if you don’t like the future you are creating, you can make changes to your unconscious and change your future. Tarot reflects your higher self. I believe we all have a wiser part of ourselves, which is often overwhelmed and drowned out by day to day stress. A tarot reading can reflect what your higher self is trying to tell you, but your head is just too busy to hear. This is why clients often say “Ohh, I knew that really” Tarot uses psychic ability. Perhaps we’d b

Shadow work, and using Tarot to shine a light.

As a shaman & tarot reader reaching into peoples hidden unconscious & working with their shadow is a fundamental part of what I do. I see our shadow as that part of our unconscious mind which our conscious mind will not acknowledge. It is like a large black box, anything that we do not want to face up to, or can not deal with right now is shoved into this box to be dealt with "later" And life carries on, with this large box of unacknowledged thoughts, beliefs, parts of ourselves, dragged around. The problem is they do have an affect on our lives. Our shadow can cause us to be "triggered"- when some one says, or does something, and we react out of all proportion. I have abandonment issues, d
