Faerie Card Reading for the Week of December 7 – 13, 2014

Messages from the Faeries


Card: Three of Wands – from the Paulina Tarot by Paulina Cassidy.

“This majestic gentleman stands balanced on a stone globe as he considers new horizons. His two companions await his signal to move ahead to new ventures.”

Message from The Faeries: It’s time to do something new!

This week it’s time to put on your thinking cap – not unlike the crown that the faerie in this card is wearing – and decide which kind of new adventure you want in your life.

Are you wanting a new job? Are you looking to start a new relationship? Is there a place you’d like to go to that you have never been? Is there some project you’ve wanting to start? Perhaps you haven’t thought of starting anything new – well now is the time to do so. It’s time to wave your magic wand and create something new.

Astro-Tarot for November, 2015

Tarot by Cecelia

“In all things, give thanks!”

General – For all Signs:

This is definitely a month to be thankful. With Mercury and Saturn out of shadow, life begins to move again. The universe will finally start to hand you the things you believed would never happen. Do not put yourself in your own way. You have the ability to really make some progress now. Gentle patience and hard work will bring great rewards and put you on a healing path.

You will begin to feel stronger and more self-reliant this month. Don’t be afraid of your own shadow as, truly your future lies before you. Maintain a compassionate, earthy nature. The road is long, and often uncertain, but you have the strength and determination to persevere. You have a ways to go, so keep your eye on the prize.

Around the third week of the month, you will be aware…

Tarot Ethics: Cold Reads

TuiTarot

I wrote a post on how to be a good storyteller when you give a Tarot reading, but being too much of a storyteller, rather than a Tarot interpreter, is sometimes also the case.

Throughout history, psychics and mediums have been using several psychological tricks to appear earnest and clairvoyant to people, whereas really they are just simple knacks that could be used by anyone. It is especially true today where material is readily accessible on the Internet, so it is quite easy to build up your arsenal.

In physical readings, it is especially easy to get away with a cold read –

  • sitters tend to be more emotionally involved in a face-to-face seminar and can be exploited easily over sensitive topics (death, grievance, material issues, break-ups etc)
  • sitters offer a wide array of different subconscious hints to their attitude with body language, micromovements (especially facial muscles), eye coordination…

Word Weaving in Tarot

TuiTarot

I have recently had to explain to several people how it is possible to do online Tarot readings – or how to be a good Tarot reader, period. I found myself describing the art of storytelling more than the art of Tarot (which is anyway deeply personal.

“If you wish to be a good Tarot reader or approach people in any other word-heavy self-development tool, be sure to understand the basics of storytelling and how to weave your interpretation together into a coherent, well-spoken message”

It doesn’t matter if you use Tarot only for shadow work, solely for predictive divination or for creative writing – the ability to tell a story is everything to a good Tarot reading. I read professionally for one website who have very high standards for written Tarot readings  – they have a set character range limit, very high style standards, grammar errors get you fired…
