A week or so ago I posted a YouTube video on MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL about why people don’t pay attention to the guidance and prediction of the Tarot. Then I realised how negative that was so I took it down.
In THIS post, I talk at length about why it’s so important to keep your vibe clean and clear, so it felt a little hypocritical, or at least not really in the groove, to be complaining about my Tarot clients almost immediately after, especially since I love my Tarot clients practically more than my own children, but that’s another blog post you may or may not be reading about eventually.
People don’t listen to the voice of the Tarot because they are not ready. End. Of. Story. The point is that they seek to get guidance, either from the Tarot or from somewhere else. Realising you need guidance then going out there and getting it is the most important thing.
Also I think it’s ok to mess up then go back on yourself and retrace your steps, don’t you?

Ok things is about to get veeeeery controversial, so just go ahead and gird your loins now: Since becoming a healer about 8 or 9 years ago, I’ve noticed that a significant number of people don’t actually want to be well or healed. Why not? How did I come to that theory? Watch my video and let us know what you think, and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel.
Yes, I am now currently on the road less travelled, and as Kid President says: “And it hurt, man!” but I think it’s ok to lose your shit from time to time. I really feel like when you need to break down you should go ahead and do it, do it like a PRO. Luckily, we all have Tarot in our lives, whether we know it or not.
Today, my card was 7 of Swords, the card of the Hot Steppin’ Murrrderer! Everyone thinks this one is so sly, such a shady number. But often that’s just what you think about yourself. You think you’re the sneaky one and the cheat. Negative self-talk is a tricky one because on one hand, we all need an inner policeman, but on the other, we guard ourselves too much it filters out too much of the ability to expand.
The 7 of Swords is a spy. But a spy never gets the recognition for what he or she does. Just look at James Bond, taking a grilling from M, for example. It takes a lot of work to train to be a spy – look at Black Widow. She doesn’t actually have any superpowers but she is the one that keeps all those other dudes together, she’s the lynchpin.
7 of Swords is just a short step away from the 8 of Swords and that’s a place you really don’t want to go! 7 of Swords says you’re actually going at this with a pneumatic drill when a feather would be better. You need to enjoy your road more, sweetness. You’re doing great. Encourage yourself. It’s rough on this road.
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.
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!
I love the idea that we are evolving into a new type of human. I think that Lynne McTaggart’s intention experiments where thousands of people join together to create peace simultaneously is about as great as you could get. Am I gushing yet? Who cares.
In this talk, Barbara Marx Hubbard interviews Lynne McTaggart and they invite us to hold an intention together. It was an affecting experience to be sure. Check it out for yourself now, it’s free.
I can’t remember the amount of times people have said that they just can’t read Court Cards, it’s always been a real problem for them, and so on.
So as you know I’m half way through a Beginners’ Tarot Course, and we’ve just had Lesson 6, which is all about the Courts. So I thought I’d leave this one open for everyone to view, unlike the other lessons which are for subscribers only. You can see the lesson page HERE, or just click on the picture above and be taken to the video directly. If you want to join next time, subscribe to my newsletter.
