Tarot Gives Financial Guidance

So, of course, disclaimer disclaimer, I am NOT saying that you should use the Tarot for your financial guidance. If you have a financial or money-related question, you should go to a licensed professional. However, I would just like to share a story about how that could actually work.

I went to a hot spring in Nagano, North Japan, with my cousins a few years ago. One of my cousins is what you could call an in-the-bone socialist, she has lived on a beach in Thailand in her bikini for 5 years, for example. So when I gave her a Tarot reading, I was shocked, yes shocked to see the 4 of Pentacles, Queen of Pentacles and King of Pentacles all there on the table. I told her that I thought her reading was wrong, but she said: Just go ahead and tell me what you see.

So, I said: “Turns out, you’re a money-grabbing whore after all!” No, that’s not what I said, nor even what I thought, but I just slipped that in the story, in case it gave you a bit of a laugh. What I actually said was: “Looks like you have some financial issues on your mind, you are thinking about saving and investing for the future, maybe budgeting and making financial plans of all sorts.” She agreed, and said that that was why she had asked me for a Tarot reading, because she was thinking of getting investments and a retirement plan, now her daughter was getting older and she was planning for the future.

Incredible, I thought, that the Tarot can be that pin-point accurate, that we can get answers to even our most worldly questions using the Tarot. And THAT’S when I decided to become a professional Tarot card reader, in case you were wondering.

Talking of which, yesterday this happened:

Thank you as ever to my super-sweet Tokyo Tarot Meetup Group. We completed Lesson 5 of 8 of our Tarot course yesterday. I asked my students for a reading about a rather scary letter from my local council in the UK, and what I should do about it. Should I call and confess all, or should I try to brush everything under the carpet?

What’s your interpretation?

Tokyo Tarot Rocks My World

It’s official: My Tarot students are the absolute BEST! They are funny, insightful, intelligent and supportive. Thank you to everyone who came to the second lesson yesterday, and see you soon I hope.

 

Beginners’ Tarot Course Starts This Week

Hierophant card from The Mythic Tarot

Yes, my friends, it’s Autumn again – no, really – and as such it’s time to learn stuff! If you are in Tokyo or surrounding area in the next few months and would really like to learn the meanings of all 78 Tarot cards, and (what’s more important) exactly how to use them to get a real ass-kicking Tarot reading, now is your chance.

View the Tokyo Tarot Meetup group’s Autumn schedule for more information.

New Reiki Share Dates

Come and share Reiki and all-round good vibes. If you don’t have attunement, don’t worry, as you will receive Reiju, which is temporary Reiki attunement, it allows you to give Reiki. If you are a Reiki practitioner, come along and tell us about your services and courses. I’m holding two per month: one on the 3rd Sunday, one on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, so that everyone gets a chance to go.

Since it was so hard to organise any Reiki Shares in Yokosuka, due to lack of suitable space, I decided to hold them in Yokohama instead. There are many excellent spaces there that I’ve rented before. Yokohama is only 30 mins from Tokyo and from Yokosuka, and the event space is about 5 to 10 minutes from the North exit of Yokohama station.

By the way, if you are interested in renting spaces around Japan, because you want to hold a meetup or whatever, maybe for a business meeting or networking event, I recommend spacee.jp. It seems to be the best of the space rental sites, IMHO.

Check out my Meetup group, Energy Network, for more info on the Reiki shares. To find out more about my work as a Shamanic Reiki Master Teacher, check out my other website: LOTUSFOREST.NET.

Udemy Course – the story so far

Instead of running the beginners’ course directly from this site, I’ve decided to post it on Udemy. The advantage is that my newsletter and blog subscribers can get it free, because you can get vouchers and the like, apparently.

The slightly sad and sorry news is that it’s taking me a lot longer than expected to get that thing up and running. I thought I would be able to just transfer files from the Beginners’ Tarot course that I ran earlier this year. However, looking back on that I realised that in fact I pretty much had to re-write the whole thing. But that’s ok, I love talking about Tarot. ETA is about mid-July at present.

So if you want a really amazing (!) comprehensive beginners’ Tarot course, subscribe to my blog! There’s a link in the side-tab on the right.

Timing Events with the Chaldean Decans

Tokyo Tarot Meetup rides again, at Denny’s Restaurant, Shinagawa, and this time we focused on  the magnificent Chaldean Decans, or decanates, whichever you prefer.

This system is based on the Chaldean calendar. The idea is that you can time events in the future using Tarot cards. I love this kind of fortune telling, because you get prediction and timing together.

Coming up soon, I will be offering a Chaldean Decan mini e-course, which will be FREE to Star Tarot Blog and newsletter Subscribers, and Patreon supporters.

If you want to see a much more beautiful version of the Chaldean calendar, see THIS blog post. In the reading on the table above, the member asked when she was getting married. Based on what the Tarot said, and looking at the calendar, what do you think?

Tarot Telesummit

Mass excitement here at Star Tarot as the indefatigable Kim Wilborn announces what promises to be another “Fly Higher, Fly Further” Tarot telesummit: Tarot Horizons. In case you’ve never participated in one of these, they are free to join, and take place live over 5 days, with recorded replays available for 48 hours. Guest speakers are usually pretty fantastic, you definitely learn a lot. My advice is hook yourself up. If you love Tarot, then this is the event for you.

Beginners Tarot Course on Udemy

A friend suggested I put my Beginners’ Tarot Course on Udemy, so I’m busy doing that at the moment. The photo above is a screen shot of the video editing suite I’m using.

Udemy is an online platform for sharing and taking online courses. I’ve had a peruse at the Tarot offerings and they all seem to be “learn Tarot in an afternoon” style. Yes, but then why not take the time to really learn the Tarot properly? I think some people would prefer that, don’t you?

My course will follow nearly the same format as the Beginners’ Tarot Course I ran in January, 12 weeks of weekly content, delivered straight to your inbox. However, the Udemy course will not be free. I haven’t decided on a fee yet, but I’ll certainly make sure it’s affordable.

Now I have a shiny new MacBook, I have the iMovie editor and it’s taking a while to get used to using it, the mobile version is a lot more feature-rich and the touch-screen makes editing so much easier than with a keyboard. By contrast, Udemy’s course builder looks to be flexible and user-friendly, the interface is intuitive and I might even be able to make some money with this. Ya never know.

Make Oracle Cards Workshop

I’ve been wanting to hold this workshop for the longest, longest time and finally today it all came together, like a beautiful dream, except of course it was real. Bonus.

Thank you to everyone who showed up, and thank you to all the amazing Spirit Guide specialists in creativity and intuition. Let’s do it again soon.
