My latest video for the Beginners’ Tarot Course is up on YouTube. I tell the class three ways I use Oracle cards. If you are interested in learning to read Oracle cards with me, you can join the Tokyo Tarot Oracle Card Meetup event, on Sunday, May 6th in Shinagawa, Tokyo. You can also join the next 12-week Beginners’ Tarot Course, scheduled for June. It’s free to join, if you are a Star Tarot newsletter subscriber.
I like getting blog posts in my mail, mainly because I’m super lazy and just want everything to land in my lap without going to the 1st world hassle of looking on a feed reader. Sigh.
Looking around the internet and seeing what other Tarotists do, TBH I’m not always that impressed with the standard of writing or the relevance of what’s being said. A lot of people just spout stuff they have read elsewhere which is so cringe-makingly wrong that you just wonder how they are going to be able to look at themselves in the mirror when they realise what a boo-boo they’ve made. Yikes. Some Tarot pros mainly post readings that they’ve done for themselves hoping prospects will find them searingly insightful, and then book a reading with them. Why yes, I have been watching John Oliver, why do you ask?
Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blogis not like that. She’s a real Tarot scholar and a real Tarot lover, which to my mind is one super-duper combination. Not only that, but her posts are relevant, original, well-written and based on research she has actually done herself; and you get her blog posts in the mail, so you can read them over breakfast. Thank you and good morning!
If you’re only ever going to buy one book on magic, let The 72 Sigils of Power by Zanna Blaise be the one. I know I’ve said that before but this time I really mean it!
On the picture above you see a sigil printed on a piece of paper which I have semi-permanently installed on my altar. (You also get to see just how awful my poor altar looks at the moment – yes I know I need to refresh those flowers.)
What’s so amazing about The 72 Sigils of Power is that you change yourself and from there your understanding of the world, through direct connection with a G_d name. Talk about inner alchemy. The effect is deep, real, lasting change.
The link for the book is an affiliate link, so if you buy the book on the Amazon site I get 10% of the sale. For more book recommendations, see THIS page on this site.
Do you want to do Tarot readings in your home? In a cafe? Why? Would you give a Tarot reading while you and / or your client are drunk? Have you ever thought about accepting money for a Tarot reading, and if so how much? When it comes to giving Tarot readings, are you a money-grabbing w…e or an anally retentive saint?
After the success of the last event, I am offering this as a regular monthly date. Come and exchange a Tarot reading for feedback. This is a supportive, encouraging and trusting group, with an emphasis on skilful reading and even more skilful feedback. Check out the next event HERE
Save the date in your calendar! If you are in the Tokyo / Kanto area, this is an event not to miss. I’ll be doing the Tarot booth, of course, but there will also be tons of food and drink stalls, craft workshops and a lot more. See you then!
Could the Asherah Tarot be the deck of my life? I love the colours and lines and simplicity and detail and size and weight and card stock and erudition and Thoth theme and card texture and friendliness and depth and geometry and femininity and appeal and harmony of content and holy mother this is the one. Get yours HERE.
“The lesson of the Tarot is that life and experience are circular and cyclical, and that every state is accompanied by its opposite. The Wheel of life turns inexorably, and it is our task to learn to love our fate, whatever it might be.”
How do you learn to read Tarot cards effectively if you can’t go to classes and you’re not a great book-reader? How do you get over your fear of giving readings for other people, or how to correctly interpret Court Cards in a reading? Are you launching yourself as a Tarot pro and want some advice and guidance?
Get personalised, one-to-one Tarot coaching with me, either in person or via Skype. See THIS page for details.
I want to learn how to read the Marseille pips so I bought this book. Having a mini flip-through yesterday, hot off the postie’s moped, it looks fabulous. I’m hosting a Meetup event to discuss this book on the 29th April, in Shinagawa, Tokyo. Check HERE for further info or the Meetup image on any page of this site.
