Fri, 6 Sep 2013 07:32:13 EST Newbie Intro Hello Team SparkTarot! <BR> <BR> I was a member of SP several years ago and dropped out for a while. I dropped back in about a week ago. Had I known about the Tarot team, I would have dropped back in a lot sooner. <BR> <BR> I have been a Tarot enthusiast since about 1990. I read an article in Yoga Journal magazine that basically concluded the cards were silly, but I was intrigued and had to check it out for myself. I started out with the RWS deck and now I own over 20 decks. My favorit... Thu, 5 Sep 2013 20:12:10 EST Web site I found I was on Amazon Sunday night & I found a website called It is an online school where you can learn about the tarot & wicca. It is free for one year. Tue, 3 Sep 2013 13:45:55 EST Daily Draw ~ August 2013 Mary-el - Hermit <BR> <BR> A wizard in a blue robe, air and water swirling around him. Blank face with a beard that looks like wind blowing out of his cowl. A lantern in his hand. <BR> <BR> I've been alone a lot. Thinking, introspecting, drawing cards, sleeping. I don't know yet if its been good for me. I have the feeling that this phase must end soon, and that I need to take what I've learned out into the world. I feel as if its time to stop being so much a hermit and be more active. Fri, 2 Aug 2013 03:25:20 EST Daily Draw ~ July 2013 Monday 1st <BR> Gaian ~ 6 Lovers <BR> <BR> Follow your passion and make wise harmonizing choices. I need to check today to see if I'm making choices that allow me to do what it is I love rather than frittering away my life. Mon, 1 Jul 2013 15:00:18 EST Returning To The Team Returning to the team after leaving several months ago. Just got to busy with life. Now that things have slowed some what for me, not much, I'm back. <BR> <BR> Looking forward to reading, posting and sharing. <BR> <BR> Anni )O( Sat, 22 Jun 2013 13:49:56 EST Readings by others I almost always read for myself, and almost never have anyone else read for me, except for a few friends now and then. In fact, I'm not sure I've ever paid anyone for a reading, until this weekend. I was vending at the Virginia Renaissance Faire, and this weekend a new tarot reader set up a booth nearby. I had talked with her in the camping area for awhile, and had a good feeling about her, so the next day I offered to barter a reading for some of my work. She was interested. Turns out that s... Tue, 11 Jun 2013 15:54:28 EST Daily Draw ~ June 2013 Saturday 1st <BR> Crystal Visions ~ King Cups <BR> <BR> Knowing peace, contentment, and safety, I am vigilant to make sure that those in emotional distress are comforted and treated with dignity. I am feeling that deep peace and rightness today and share it with others. Sat, 1 Jun 2013 16:00:24 EST Daily Draw ~ June 2013 Prairie Tarot - 4 of cups <BR> <BR> I'm at the Virginia renaissance faire, vending my artwork. It's 90 degrees and I've wilted. Easy to get discouraged. Ironic that there's one cup upright, because I've only sold one art quilt today. <BR> <BR> Pulled a second card for encouragement, and got the Jackalope. Equivalent to the flying squirrel, this fellow always gives me a smile. He says, "hang on, everything will be ok. Keep smiling!" Sat, 1 Jun 2013 15:17:23 EST What do you guys think of this spread? I want to know if he will fall in love with me and we'll get married? I'm asking about a guy I like. <BR> <BR> TOWER-My first thought was he would have to make a drastic change in where he is in life right now. Or I would have to. Something would be a quick abrupt change. This card speaks of something all the sudden, quick change, breaking down walls. <BR> <BR> CHARIOT-This card is more of a patience sort of card moving on, moving forward so I will have to be patient for him to come my way ... Thu, 23 May 2013 10:15:38 EST intro Hi I am new to Spark and new to this thread. Thank you for welcoming me. I am grateful to be here. Mon, 20 May 2013 12:26:23 EST Daily Draw ~ May 2013 Thursday 2nd <BR> Crystal Visions ~ 5 cups <BR> <BR> I need to take action to change past patterns. This is a good time to do that on several levels. I have had a major upheaval in my life... I'm seeing it as good as I have gotten my flooring put in and it is beauteous! I also got the Play Room painted a lovely mint green. In doing so all things from all rooms (except the kitchen) had to be moved out and now I have some of the stuff moved back in and can now do it more slowly than I removed ... Thu, 2 May 2013 15:36:12 EST New tarot Book I found I got a new Tarot book last Monday called Around The Tarot In 78 Days A Personal Journey Through The Cards by Marcus Katz & Tali Goodwin. It is like a lesson book for the Tarot. Mon, 15 Apr 2013 00:43:59 EST Daily Draw ~ April 2013 Monday 1st <BR> Gaian ~ 3 Fire <BR> <BR> Expressing myself with abandon is at the front of the line today. Creativity is shinning and as I express it I empower myself with more confidence. The day went by as any day without anything out of normal. When I went to a class during a meditation I had a wonderful creative idea for a machine embroidery design. Now all I need to do is take the creativity and bring it to manifestation... which is also part of threes. Wed, 3 Apr 2013 01:23:31 EST Daily Draw ~ March 2013 Friday 1st <BR> Gaian ~ 2 Earth <BR> <BR> Twos are balancing, attracting, and choice. Earth is stable, consistent, practical, and persistent. Today I choose to test my ability to balance relaxation and daily tasks to see if I can get things accomplished without overdoing it. Fri, 1 Mar 2013 17:44:55 EST Using the Tarot for weight loss assistance Hi, All, <BR> <BR> This was so cool! I asked what the health consequences were for me if I were to adopt a variety of eating patterns (I don't like the term 'diet'), and for certain lengths of time, one question at a time, one card at a time. For example, what are the health consequences for me if I followed (the diet in a particular book) for up to six months. Depending on the eating pattern and length of time, I picked cards like Knight of Swords reversed (acting hastily), King of Sword...

Today I'm being told to be a wise steward of my energy resources. I woke up this morning and was reminded by a very painful back to set my boun...

Shuffle your deck, ask, "Where is the magic in my life hidden today?" and grab a card, keeping it face down. Don't look at it! Spend the day wondering how this card will speak to you. Watch for it. Listen for it. Notice any interesting events, chance encounters, surprises, synchronicity or oddness. When you get home, or at the end of the day, decide which event was most likely the... Tue, 29 Jan 2013 00:35:19 EST Daily Draw ~ January 2013 Daily Draw ~ Tuesday, 1st January <BR> Gaian ~ 9 Earth <BR> <BR> Solid achievement and comfort. Physically and emotional feeling of belonging; a placed earned through creativity and wisdom... roots. <BR> <BR> What a great card to start the year with... a feeling of belonging and comfort. That allows me the stability to work from a comfortable center. That the place where creativity flows for me, where I am released from "making a way" to relaxing and playing.

This evening I was shuffling a deck I can't read with as the cards are 'way too big - The Enchanted Tarot. Beautiful cards; slightly different take on the reading of them. I drew the 7 of Pentacles. The farmer stands gazing at his vine looking disheartened and weary. In fact, today I have felt more upbeat about my life and choices and Spark Program and wellness than I have in weeks. Yes, it is a life-long str... Sat, 1 Dec 2012 17:20:13 EST Hiya My name is Anastasiya and I am in New Zealand. <BR> I have been tinkering with Tarot, Runes and Crystals since I was a young girl. I have to admit, I dont really know what I am doing and mostly go on intuition and instinct for the most part. <BR> My mother and I did attend a Spiritualist group when I was young, this is where I learnt the little I know. But we fell away from the group when the members moved away from the old traditions and became a modified Christian group. <BR> I have over ...

Fri, 23 Nov 2012 05:30:44 EST Daily Draw ~~~November 2012 Thursday 1st ~ Ace of Pentacles (Crystal Visions) <BR> <BR> What a great card to have at the first of the month, the first of the holiday season, and the beginning of the 2nd year of retirement! <BR> <BR> This lovely card says I'm ready! I have the seed money, the seed ideas, and I am increasingly aware of my contribution and value... what could be better! I only need to prepare for accomplishment and I will be in the center of the abundance of all things! Whoo Hoo!!! Thu, 1 Nov 2012 14:23:36 EST Daily Draw~~~October 2012 This morning I drew the Sun, reversed. And I always take this one to mean that my Sun is still shining, just not as bright as it could be! It's going to be another long work day for me and it's supposed to be cold and rainy all day. I may have to dig deep to find my inner sun! Mon, 1 Oct 2012 06:58:21 EST A New Hope... Hi there. Like many people I am not new to trying to lose weight. Over the years I've lost and gained more than I want remember. Now I am the heaviest I have ever been and realizing this must stop. I remember saying by the time I'm 30 I will be slim and feeling great. Instead I went deeper into depression and gained what I wanted to lose. Now closing in on my 40th birthday I have not changed in the way I wanted to. <BR> <BR> At this point in my life I am in a place mentally that feels wonde...

Thu, 6 Sep 2012 16:21:02 EST OMG, two readings for friends in two days... ... and I am SO out of practice! I used to do readings for friends years ago, mostly for fun and always with the warning that I am NOT a professional. People used to like them and now, out of the blue, three people have asked me if I still do readings and if I'd be willing to do one for them. Two of them will come together. <BR> <BR> I'm looking forward to the readings, I know it'll be fun no matter what since these are people I know well and they are not paying, it's more like a girl's nigh... Thu, 6 Sep 2012 09:21:44 EST Favorite Deck? Do you have a tarot deck that you favor more than others? And why? Tue, 4 Sep 2012 06:17:18 EST Hi Hi, I'm Anna from Madrid, Spain. I've been interested in Tarot for a number of years now and have about a dozen decks, although I usually use the Rider-White. I've been reacquainting myself with Tarot over this summer, and I'm glad to see SparkPeople has a little Tarot corner as well. I think as I grow closer to 40, Tarot might become more prominent in my life... Sun, 2 Sep 2012 14:00:11 EST Daily Draw---S eptember I hope it's okay for me to start a new thread. It's just the luck of the draw [pun intended!]; looks like maybe I'm the first one up today? <BR> <em>8</em> <em>31</em> <em>67</em> <em>8</em> <em>31</em> <em>67</em> <em>8</em> <em>31</em> <em>67</em> Sat, 1 Sep 2012 06:26:21 EST Hi I am New Hi my name is Lisa & I just found this team today. I really want to learn more about the Tarot. Right now I have 3 decks. The Celtic DragonTarot, & 2 more that I can't remember the names of rightnow. Tue, 28 Aug 2012 10:18:56 EST Re-Intro duction! I've been on this team for a long time and I'm not sure if I ever did an introduction. I'm not new to tarot and have been drawn to it since I was 14 years old and I'm 49 now so it's been a while. I come and go with being active with it--at this point a draw a card every morning to set the tone for the day. <BR> At one point I did the Builders of the Adytum correspondence course---back before the internet! I use the classic Rider-Waite deck mostly. Fri, 24 Aug 2012 20:48:00 EST Daily Draw August 2012 Ok... I'm going to start the August draw... It is the 5th of August so I'm getting a slow start this month. I look forward to others joining me... <BR> <BR> Today, I drew the Ace of Swords using the Crystal Visions deck. It is such a lovely card. The clouds have gather although there are still patches of blue at the top of the card around the hilt of the sword. The sword, in the center of the card, is a large broadsword, the hilt is shaped like a raven, the hand guard being the wings. At the...

My readings are contracted thru, trade shows, Pagan Pride Days Festivals, Renne Fests, when I want to get away I usually head to the park with a deck of cards to connect with the cards, nature. I also have a website that is up and going where I post daily "Musings" featuring daily astrological info, tarot card and... Sun, 22 Jul 2012 13:01:05 EST Daily Draw July 2012 The Wheel of Fortune - well, yesterday's card, The Empress did indeed turn out to be the cure for the anxiety and worry I was feeling. She is, after all, the Mother of the Tarot and as such is really good at soothing frightened little ones. I worked! Today I am not very anxious, waiting to hear about the worrisome issues but the answers won't be coming for a bit yet. Just an ordinary work day with duties and chores. The Wheel is all about some process culminating, winding up, results coming o... Tue, 10 Jul 2012 10:36:55 EST Daily draw - The Empress Well, she represents beauty and creativity foremost in my mind, and love. All things esthetically pleasing ... My state of mind this morning is anxiety over three issues pending (worry!) and I think she is the cure rather than an image of how I feel! I will carry her around in my mind's eye this morning and see if she helps reduce the jitters! Mon, 9 Jul 2012 08:29:51 EST Ace of Cups I have been Sparking for 11 months and did not even think of searching for a Team that uses the Tarot. Though it looks like folks go a while between posts on this Team, I like the idea of drawing a card regularly to examine the inner side of my Journey. So here I am! I drew the Ace of Cups which feels very positive, encouraging and even happy. Fulfilling and emotionally promising. This is very clearly about my over-all experience of Spark People. It fades fast when I allow the "hungry little-... Sun, 8 Jul 2012 13:04:02 EST Daily Draw ~ Friday 29th June Crystal Visions ~ Ace of Wands <BR> <BR> Yes, I have come up with some ideas and actually wrote them down.. and a few solutions to challenges I've been facing. <BR> Unfortunately, none of them have to do with my weight loss. <em>39</em> <BR> I do believe though that if I am successful with following thru on these ideas... they are organizational in a sewing/craft room, I can feel more together and that in itself will make me feel better with myself and indirectly have a great deal to do w... Sat, 30 Jun 2012 01:21:00 EST Daily Draw June 22 This morning I drew the High Priestess--taking this as a sign that though I had to make some hard decisions my intuition, my inner priestess is leading me down the right path. Fri, 22 Jun 2012 07:44:29 EST Thanks for the heads-up! I drew Wheel of Fortune early this morning. I laughed and said to my husband, "I guess this means that anything could happen today, I should be prepared for anything." I took it to heart and as soon as I got to work everything happened at once, so many things to do and more kept coming all the time, but I kept the image of the Wheel of Fortune in my mind and was able to ride the wave the entire 11 hours at work. Whew! Thu, 21 Jun 2012 20:28:50 EST Daily Draw---June 20 I drew the Hermit reversed today. Today has been a difficult day for me. I felt that today's card was counseling me to be aware of wanting to be by myself when I'm distracted. Today has been an odd combination of having to make a hard decision about closing off one person from my life and having to be out in the world. Wed, 20 Jun 2012 17:46:13 EST Daily Draw ~ Monday 18th June Crystal Visions ~ 7 of Wands <BR> <BR> Today is the day that I have to reconfirm my belief in a project and stand firm in those beliefs. I also need to reconfirm my confidence in my abilities. Sometimes I think this a daily or even moment to moment necessity to reconfirm to the tasks and abilities that are part of the project (dropping pounds) we have accepted. Mon, 18 Jun 2012 16:29:00 EST Hello and Blessed be My name is Katie. I have been with SP for awhile but never really used it until I felt that I needed the extra support in my weight loss journey. I am married and have a wonderful hubby and we have a 10 year old girl. I have been on my path now for 4 years. I feel so much more comfortable with my beliefs now than I ever have. <BR> <BR> I look forward to getting to know everyone!! Sun, 17 Jun 2012 11:37:27 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday 16th June Crystal Vision ~ 9 Pentacles <BR> <BR> After so many years, I'm finally enjoying the rewards of my hard work! It is nice to see the cards recognize my blessings as well as my challenges! Sat, 16 Jun 2012 22:48:32 EST Daily Draw ~ Thursday 14th June Crystal Vision ~ 7 of Wands <BR> <BR> I believe in what I'm doing and where I'm going and I believe in the projects I'm involved in. I believe it so strong that I am able to stand firm in my beliefs and I'm confident in my abilities. Wow! what a great place to be today... ready and willing AND Confident in ME! I am definitely making progress. Thu, 14 Jun 2012 14:36:53 EST Daily Draw--June 13 Today I drew Judgement and it's so appropriate right now. I feel like I have some decisions to make and it's time to RISE UP! Wed, 13 Jun 2012 11:01:52 EST Daily Draw--June12 I drew "The Moon" today. A good reminder for me to tap into my intuition! Tue, 12 Jun 2012 16:13:50 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday 9th June Crystal Visions ~ 9 of Pentacles <BR> <BR> Yes, I'm enjoying the rewards of all my work... it's called retirement! Huh, oh, ok, OK... I'm suppose to pick something within this week or day. Uh huh, There are actually a lot of rewards. Today I spent time volunteering at a energy healing clinic and thoroughly enjoyed myself that is particularly rewarding! So, yes, I'm having rewards within rewards and loving most every minute! <BR> <BR> Except I still can't get myself to finish tasks... this w... Sun, 10 Jun 2012 04:09:25 EST Daily Draw ~ Wednesday 6th June Crystal Vision ~ King of Wands <BR> <BR> Whoo Hoo! I'm ready to have the king bring clarity and order to my creativity! I have so MANY things I want to do and am pretty much not doing any of them. I'm kind-of dabbling but not spending the time I wish I would. Now that I am getting more clarity and order I will be able to *find* the time to produce something creative rather than just think about it!!!

A quote from the blog follows: <BR> --------------------------------------- <BR> The following questions are helpful starting points for rephrasing a question: <BR> <BR> What do I need to know about… ? <BR> What do I need to do to achieve…? <BR> What is standing in the way and how can I best overcome this? <BR> ... Mon, 4 Jun 2012 14:09:42 EST Daily Draw~Monday 4th June When I've asked for clarification of the cards, I've been finding some really wild things which have been really useful.

Mon, 4 Jun 2012 13:58:25 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday 2nd June Crystal Visions ~ Eight of Cups <BR> <BR> A chapter in my life has closed and it's time to move on to a dream of the heart. It's not going to necessarily going to be an easy trail, but one that I must follow. Sun, 3 Jun 2012 00:51:46 EST 3 Card Draw I did a 3 card draw yesterday that I found on Biddy Tarot. I was really nervous about what I would find, but I did it, and it was sooooo accurate and powerful! <BR> <BR> What the Universe wants me to be: Queen of Wands <BR> Personal qualities required: 2 of Cups <BR> Specific actions required: The Wheel of Fortune <BR> <BR> The Universe wants me to be a dominant feminine energy, and not afraid to be powerful. It wants me to be bold, courageous, optimistic, confident, and a leader. <BR>...

Thu, 31 May 2012 15:32:57 EST Daily Draw ~ Wednesday 30th May Crystal Visions ~ 9 of Wands <BR> <BR> Wow... do I need this card today! I'm hurting really bad probably because I fell off the "good" food wagon for the last few days. The nine assures me that I have inner reserves along with spiritual and intuitive strength to get me through this. <BR> <BR> I am so glad I know the tarot to get this confirmation that no matter how bad I behaved, no matter how bad I feel that I will see it through... today I am comforted, tomorrow may be a warning to be ca... Wed, 30 May 2012 13:40:30 EST Daily Draw ~ Tuesday 29th May Crystal Visions ~ Knight of Swords <BR> <BR> Today fast action with skill and knowledge is required today. I need to be on alert. Well, that is most definitely true today! I went to dinner last night with a friend and stuffed myself till I was not just full but OVER full therefore I need to pay closer attention to what and how I eat today. Wed, 30 May 2012 02:06:42 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday 27th May Crystal Visions ~ Sun <BR> <BR> The warmth and radiance is awakened in me to the point it is visible and recognized by those around me. WOW! I trust this is true. I did learn some new things today that may make this a possibility! Sun, 27 May 2012 21:17:25 EST Daily Draw ~ Friday 25th May Crystal Visions ~ 9 of Pentacles <BR> <BR> Wow... this is a celebration day! I need to kick back and enjoy the rewards of my hard work. It a good thing that I can be told to do enjoy accomplishments... can I do it. It has never been in my repertoire. Will I be able to add it to my tool box. I trust it is so... my stress will be a lot less if I can! Fri, 25 May 2012 16:24:16 EST Daily Draw ~ Thursday 24th May Crystal Visions ~ High Priestess <BR> <BR> Today's the day I need to more effectively to learn how to trust my inner truth and intuition. Some days that's more difficult than others... I trust this is one of the easy ones. One of the things I need to figure out is how to put into practice... in other words DO IT! I find myself too sedentary, doing more thinking than action. So maybe I should use what I do best... think and figure out how to become more active... and like it! Thu, 24 May 2012 16:08:09 EST Daily Draw ~ Wednesday 23rd May Crystal Visions ~ 10 of Cups <BR> <BR> What I have been working for is secure... but in being secure, I didn't follow through on my eating program or other tasks today... I played a stupid game for hours. I guess I was celebrating that a situation I have been working on has gone past the maybe I'll make it and now I know I can get to the end successful. Although it feels like I frittered away a perfectly good day that could have been more productive... I suspect I need to forgive myself for ... Thu, 24 May 2012 04:20:52 EST Daily Draw ~ Monday 21st May Crystal Visions ~ Strength <BR> <BR> Hummm, since I didn't get my card posted yesterday... I guess the Universe thought I hadn't paid enough attention to the card so I got it again today.

Alright...I have to be careful of my impulses today. It's a 'trouble' day. I don't feel well already, plus PMS, plus I lost another two pounds, and it's a Friday...which means I'll be tempted into comfort food and a few beers, and saying 'screw it, you're losing weight'.

Eating is going to be a non-issue today. We're getting sushi for dinner, I had a very light and healthy breakfast, even if I have a huge lunch, everything will be totally fine.

Fri, 11 May 2012 09:57:11 EST Daily Draw for May 10 I always pull two cards, one for eating, and one for fitness (or physical health overall). I try to work them into the events of the day, and see what they mean for me, in relation to what's going on. <BR> <BR> Eating- 3 of Disks. Good, exemplary eating day.

Mon, 7 May 2012 15:53:29 EST The Value of Posting Daily/Weekly Readings I am a former lurker who decided that I needed to learn the cards better. Although I have worked with Tarot for sometime now, but am still a novice. It goes without saying that my knowledge increased a great deal when I started doing a daily draw. <BR> <BR> I found that I could read the posts that other wrote and think I had learned a lot until I started doing them myself... and then I was back to being unable to figure out the darn card I just drew meant and how it applied to my own situat... Mon, 7 May 2012 00:59:53 EST Daily Draw ~ Sunday 6th May Crystal Visions ~ 7 of Swords <BR> <BR> I need to be *very* careful... the mind is not my friend today! It is playing tricks on me and telling me that I'm hungry... when I'm not, that I'm not successful... when I am. I need to take control and live from my heart today, not my mind. Sun, 6 May 2012 17:09:06 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday 5h May Crystal Visions ~ 2 Pentacles <BR> <BR> I am adding more and more of the knowledge and actions of dealing with the multiple steps of gaining healthy habits/rituals into my day... I am becoming more proficient in juggling the additions. These habits/rituals are becoming more and more naturally a part of my day and helping me to be happier and healthier. I am learning how to balance these new resources into my day. Sat, 5 May 2012 21:46:56 EST Daily Draw ~ Friday 4th May Crystal Visions ~~ Chariot <BR> <BR> Ah nice!!! I am prepared for the challenge and courageous... I'm meeting my "battle" with food and self-esteem head on with the whatever inner resources are needed!!! Fri, 4 May 2012 16:06:20 EST Daily Draw ~ Thursday 3rd May Crystal Visions ~ 9 of Swords <BR> <BR> Not only does my card tell me I'm being too hard on myself, but my nutrition coach tells me the same thing. I need to *wake up* from the *nightmare* and realize that it has only been a bad dream. Things are actually going well and I'm doing exactly the right thing at exactly the right time... I just need to stop making mountains out of mole hills! I need to give myself credit and celebrate my successes. Fri, 4 May 2012 02:02:13 EST Daily Draw ~ Wednesday 2nd May Crystal Visions ~ Justice <BR> <BR> Bingo... I'm out of balance. Duh! I need to work at bringing my life back into balance. Physically I can start by eating proper meals and exercising. I also have retired within the last 6 months and I need to get my days re-ordered and find structure and find an appropriate routine. Wed, 2 May 2012 18:25:40 EST Daily Draw ~ Tueday 1st May Crystal Visions ~ King of Wands <BR> <BR> Great card for this day! I had recommitted myself to my health starting today Tuesday, May 1st, 2012. The King tells me that I've decided to take command and move forward in control of my life with new ideas and the energy to be successful! I will either have supporters or detractors... I don't have to deal with "Mr. Inbetween"! No wishy wishers for me I will know who supports me and who doesn't so I can "hang out" with my supporters and keep my ener... Tue, 1 May 2012 13:08:23 EST Daily Draw ~ Sunday 29th April Crystal Visions ~ The Tower <BR> <BR> Whoo Hoo! I am Scorpio enough to be happy to get this card, knowing that some of my preconceived incorrect notions are going to be destroyed... turned into dust and ash! I will be able to take that dust and ash and use it to "grow" truth and beauty! I can hardly believe how excited and happy that old stuff is going to be gone and leave room for new to grow without the weeds to choke it out! { big sigh } Sun, 29 Apr 2012 16:52:53 EST Tarot Readings So, I think it was Friday when I had a really strange tarot reading. Everything was opposites and from what I gathered my life is simply scattered left and right. That or I wasn't focused during the reading. Totally possible because of all of the changes going on right now. <BR> <BR> Last night I did a single card draw and drew the 10 of Pentacles. Interesting...the deck and book I used basically said that it was time to make plans for the future. <BR> <BR> This morning I did another singl... Sun, 29 Apr 2012 11:46:20 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday 28h April Crystal Visions ~ 8 of Pentacles <BR> <BR> I need to pay attention to details while working on a project. The project is using food to grow healthy and dropping weight. It doesn't make any difference who knows about my project... it is important that I take it *VERY* seriously! Sun, 29 Apr 2012 01:46:10 EST Daily Draw ~ Thursday 26th April Crystal Visions ~ Queen of Pentacles <BR> <BR> Ahhhh... today I'm working on making my dream a reality! Thu, 26 Apr 2012 17:05:14 EST Daily Draw ~ Wednesday 25th April Crystal Visions ~ Four of Pentacles <BR> <BR> Goals have stabilized, but afraid to let them "breathe". If I continue to hang on the the status quo, I will need to start over again... and again... and again because I will strangle all the good I have accomplished this far. It's time to lighten up and let go in order to move forward... I need to welcome change and go with the flow! Wed, 25 Apr 2012 23:43:04 EST hello hi ev1!!! just wanted to pop in & say hi. i'm new to ur team. i hope to make a lot of new friends & learn a lot from this team! Tue, 24 Apr 2012 18:15:07 EST Do I Need To Be An Expert? Hi, I'm Jaye. New to SP & forum speak. I started using tarot when I was about ten yrs old. In my twenties I did readings but in the thirty yrs since I've been more private with my use of it. I don't have much in the way of technical knowledge but I do consider it a longtime companion. Mon, 23 Apr 2012 13:39:26 EST Daily Draw ~ Sunday 22nd April Sacred Circle ~ Ace of Cups <BR> <BR> I'm in contact with the source am feeling the connection and ready for the healing. Just to make sure I stay connected and continue to feel and connect with the healing energies, I'm going to go outside and work in the garden... It is *beautiful* here, sunshine and 70 degrees, a "perfect" day to feel and extend the connection with the source! Spring has sprung and I'm soaking it all in! Whoo Hoo!

I trust I can hang on to enough of the wonderful ones to put them into practice in the days to come! And I've definitely had some creative ideas... Sat, 21 Apr 2012 01:58:04 EST Daily Draw ~ Sunday 19th April Crystal Visions ~ 5 of Pentacles <BR> <BR> I'm dealing with the conformity of the social norms of my past. These norms no longer fit my life and I'm having problems letting them go. Now that I'm aware... thank you tarot, I can concentrate on my meditations and releasing the expectation and pride of the past and built a future based on my current values. Thu, 19 Apr 2012 19:43:34 EST Daily Draw ~ Sunday 15th April Crystal Visions ~ Page of Wands <BR> <BR> I'm starting a new discovery and am excited about it... <BR> <BR> Ugh, I'm having a relapse of the "crud" that's going around and can't think so I'll just reveal in the new discovery that's coming... at this point I trust it's how to get well! Sun, 15 Apr 2012 19:29:40 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday 14th April Crystal Visions ~ 19 The Sun <BR> <BR> I trust I'll find out soon what simple pleasure / truth has been given. It doesn't feel like something big or in large bright neon, but I think it is something *very* special that has come quietly on tip toes that cuddles in and make a huge difference in my future. Sun, 15 Apr 2012 01:14:33 EST Daily Draw ~ Friday 13th April Crystal Vision Tarot ~ 10 of Swords <BR> <BR> I'm spending a lot to time in my mind lately... maybe that is why I pull a card in the morning and don't get around to posting it until the day is almost over! Working on changing that! <BR> <BR> I need to watch my thoughts so they don't "stab me in the back"! I will keep my thoughts positive and creative in order to grow them rather than "kill" them. I'm having such good ideas! Now is the time to nurture them and allow them to grow strong. Sat, 14 Apr 2012 02:15:06 EST Daily Draw ~ Thursday 12th April Crystal Visions ~ 3 of Swords <BR> <BR> It's time for me to hear a truth I've been avoiding hearing. Thu, 12 Apr 2012 23:38:00 EST Daily Draw ~ Wednesday 11th April Crystal Visions Tarot ~ Knight of Swords <BR> <BR> Two days of Knights... lots of change and movement! Today I have had a carnival of thoughts... in the mental realm. Too bad that all my problems and those of the world got solved without any demonstration. Guess I need to do something about getting them from the mind into reality! I trust that will be tomorrow!!! I think that all my grandiose ideas of today need to be paired down to the workable ones in my life... Once I get those handled, I...

Sun, 8 Apr 2012 19:31:06 EST Daily Draw ~Saturday 7th April Crystal Visions ~ Six of Wands <BR> <BR> Well, I definitely got the wrong card today... the victory card where the victory receives the accolades from the crowd and gives back the energy to the crowds each symbiotically feeding/feasting on the success. I would say if it was a card that was just the opposite it would be a good fit! Everything in my life is turned upside down, inside out. Not only was live going downhill, I got bronchitis Monday and it has gone from bad to worse today. To add ... Sat, 7 Apr 2012 17:08:42 EST Daily Draw 7th of April Can I start one of these?

Sat, 7 Apr 2012 11:31:03 EST Daily Draw ~ Friday 6th April Crystal Visions ~ 7 of Swords <BR> <BR> This is the thief card... Crystal Visions have taken it a step farther than the man sneaking away with the swords, there are what look like hawks flying away with the swords and the human is winged and has two of the swords. These cards are sooo beautiful! <BR> <BR> I get the feeling in this reading that the swords are being removed rather than stolen... kind-of rescuing me. The hawks seem to have taken pieces of my life away... of course, that could... Sat, 7 Apr 2012 01:20:01 EST Daily Draw~Friday 30th of March Not a lot of time today to reflect.

My old name was Arachne13, and I'm back here now. Of all the aspects of Spark, I think I missed this team the most, the daily draws helped out so much, in my journey. <BR> <BR> It took me some time to come back to teams in general, because back when I was active here, I got a little stressed just keeping up with stuff. I'm taking a more moderate approach, and realized how much I missed my fellow readers.

Mon, 26 Mar 2012 14:27:05 EST Daily Draw ~ Sunday, 25th March Crystal Visions ~ Wheel of Fortune <BR> <BR> I have to laugh... just shortly before I pulled this card I was on Facebook and saw a quote, A man with a question mark over his head is looking at 3 doors labeled Money, Luck, Love and his remark is: "I will choose luck ! it will bring me Love and Money !" So, this time the Wheel was "read" before I even got it and is telling me that I chose luck and I'm going to get all the good things!!! Whoo Hoo!!!

I think this is my 4th or 5th time in a month (possibly more) that I've seen this card in my draw. This is a time of reconnection to myself and I have been doing a lot of self-searching to learn what direction I need to go in now that I'm retired. I have been doing what the Hermit says... "get rid of distractions and concentrate on introspection and meditation...". It is good to know that I'm still on the... Fri, 23 Mar 2012 01:20:44 EST Daily Draw ~ Monday 18th March Crystal Visions ~ 7 of Pentacles <BR> <BR> Milestone reached... brief rest before resuming. I like the fact that I haven't collapsed, just resting between active periods! I was wondering!!! Mon, 19 Mar 2012 23:40:08 EST Birthday two card draw Every year on my birthday, I do a full spread for the upcoming year. This year, though, when I was shuffling, two cards leapt out and wanted my full attention: the Five of Cups and The World. <BR> <BR> I guess it's time to move on from the grief of the past couple years - Lord knows there's been enough of it - and concentrate instead on what I *do* have - the two cups still standing. Assuming I can fulfill that, looks like I may align myself with cosmic, or life, purpose and have all the ... Sat, 17 Mar 2012 15:01:39 EST Daily Draw ~ Friday 16th March 9 of wands - reversed <BR> <BR> This poor guy always looks so beat up - like he keeps being knocked down, and keeps getting back up again. He reminds me of the Black Knight from that old "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" movie... "It's just a flesh wound!" <BR> <BR> I'm thinking the reversal today is to recognize that 'exaggerated-to-the-point-of-being-humorou<BR>s' perspective... to lighten up and not take what comes so seriously. Fri, 16 Mar 2012 07:54:54 EST Daily Draw ~ Wednesday 14th March 9 of Pents - reversed for today. <BR> <BR> This woman has made it on her own. She has acheived success, accomplishment, and comfort, and is happy in her solitude. Reading this reversed is kind of interesting. I don't find that it applies as a direct opposite, but rather as a modified meaning. <BR> <BR> I do often take some pride in what I've been able to achieve at work. But... Yesterday was a great example of something that happened, that seems to be happening with greater frequency the... Wed, 14 Mar 2012 08:31:44 EST Daily Draw ~ Tuesday 13th March Abano/White ~ Heirophant <BR> <BR> I need to recognize traditions and community are there to support me and not trip me up and accuse me of not fitting in "like I *should*"! I need to learn to trust community again and become a member and not be so much a loner. I no longer have the community of work and so whatever community I join with can be one of my own choosing.

Mon, 12 Mar 2012 22:08:39 EST Daily Draw ~ Monday 12th March Rider/Waite ~ Knight of Cups <BR> <BR> Yup, the overwhelm is so heavy from changes that I am acting more like the teenager in how I'm sticking my head in the sand... spending much of my time reading and playing games and staring out into space. I think it's time to grow up and put all that energy into action. Mon, 12 Mar 2012 22:04:46 EST Did Anyone Ever Notice... I was looking at the Aces in the Rider/Waite deck and the hands holding the pentacle and the cup are the left holding the pentacle and the right holding the cup. But the hands grasping the wand and the sword are both the right hand just coming from the right for the wands and the left for the swords. I think it is *VERY* interesting that it doesn't show the left hand holding the sword! I wonder if it's because that in the "olden" days that anyone that was left handed was "evil"? <BR> <BR> An... Sun, 11 Mar 2012 03:47:35 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday 10th of March Rider/Waite ~ 2 of Pentacles <BR> <BR> Yes, I'm juggling because I'm trying to find a balance in my *new* life. I've worked so many years that I don't know how to balance my live not working so I'm looking for the best way to balance and live my life as a retired person. Plus, I don't want to get caught in a routine until I know that it's the best routine. Juggling is my friend now... whoo hoo!!! Sun, 11 Mar 2012 01:23:47 EST Daily Draw ~ Friday 9th of March daily card: cups 6 <BR> a new work experience is waiting for me. but i have to learn from the past, and remember the good things, instead of repeating in my head what went wrong (I was fired at my last job, so now I have some troubles to believe in myself). It's a new start! I can do it ! Fri, 9 Mar 2012 06:35:51 EST Daily Draw ~ Thursday 8th of March Chariot again for me. Still making conscious decisions to keep a better balance between work and play. I think I'm doing well with that, as evidenced by the fact that I have felt consistently better than I was a few weeks ago. So, maybe this is just a reminder to keep it up...

I have to admit I have been tossing the idea around in the back of my head that I may want to try creating my own deck for personal use. I sort of jumped in without much thought with those two initial cards, with resu... Wed, 7 Mar 2012 08:10:16 EST Daily Draw ~ Tuesday, 6th of March Drew the 2 of cups this morning. For me this is very much the same card as the Lovers, which I drew yesterday. (Partnering, connection, a state of pure love / forgiveness.) I'm guessing this is a continuation of that lesson. Either that or it wasn't what I thought it was. Staying open to any inspiration that might suddenly make it make sense! Tue, 6 Mar 2012 18:10:11 EST Daily Draw ~ Monday, 5th of March Waite - 10th of pentacles <BR> really weird.. It's the third day now that I restarted to draw a daycart and it's three times the same! It's a pentacle and I usually don't draw them! <BR> did anybody ever had the same thing? I wonder what it means... Mon, 5 Mar 2012 10:17:32 EST daily draw, sunday 4th of march today I askes the question: what will help me to succeed this weightloss journey. <BR> I was really surprised to draw the same card as yesterday! It was really weird. i felt like i misted something in the reading of yesterday. <BR> But then I thought: as well in difficult times, as in a difficult journey as losing weight, I will count on the support of my family, especially my boyfriend. <BR> An other meaning of the card did me also realise that it is about responsability. And only I have ... Sun, 4 Mar 2012 13:01:09 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday 3rd of March Rider/Waite ~ 4 of Cups <BR> <BR> This is one of those cards that *really* affirm how "right-on" that the tarot pulls are!!! Part of the meaning says, "too locked in habit and routine to move, but habit and routine no longer give him comfort"... well, DUH! I'm *trying* to learn a different routine from several decades of working! Argh... I'm finding patience with myself is a necessary ingredient to changing habits. I'm also discovering that it is a process and not an immediate change. I'm be...

Fri, 2 Mar 2012 20:17:30 EST Daily Draw ~ Thursday 1st of March Pulled only one card today: 7 of Wands <BR> <BR> I was surprised at how well my intuition read this card, strongly picking up on the 'defend yourself!' energy. It supports yesterday's Tower (change is coming) & Knight of Swords (be authoritative & direct). So where/how do I need to draw on the 7 of Wands? <BR> <BR> Career: Take charge of developing & innovating my desk. Be proactive (feedback from Tuesday's performance review). <BR> <BR> Friendships: An estranged friend called yesterday...

Today is day 1 of my 30 Day Forgiving Experiment to let go of anger, heal my past, & break down the wall in front of my heart. So far I'm remembering to repeat my affirmation, 'I forgive you. I release you.' Next up is to pair that w/ movement at the gym tonight. <BR> <BR> What I need to accept today: Page of Wands <BR> <BR> The Page of Wands reminds me of the Fool with less ...

Today I'm definitely the beggar reaching out to the rich man (representing a specific person in my life). It's win-win for everyone. The scales represent his clear-headedness & logic; he's offering out of love. I'm finally humbled, yet grateful, to be of... Tue, 28 Feb 2012 14:32:24 EST Two and Three of Wands My daily draw - the two of wands - got me thinking about this. I've always had kind of a mental block about the two and three of wands. To me they seem like more or less the same card. They both have to do with early stages of an enterprise, they both feature the backside of a man gazing out over a landscape - or rather a waterscape. One holds the world in his hands, the other watches ships coming in. They both appear well dressed. They both hold promise. <BR> <BR> How do you read these two ... Mon, 27 Feb 2012 08:47:59 EST Daily Draw ~ Monday 27th of February I drew the two of wands this morning. I am in the early stages of a new project at work that I am both excited and apprehensive about. It's a bit of an undertaking, but I feel pretty confident that the work I put into this now will make my life a great deal easier down the road. <BR> <BR> My weekend was spent completely immersed in creative projects at home that have been calling my name to come and play... it felt so good! And I accomplished a lot. This morning I'm feeling relaxed, full of... Mon, 27 Feb 2012 08:29:09 EST Returning to Team Bright Blessings <BR> <BR> I use to be a member here but got overwhelmed with the number of teams I was on. <BR> <BR> I have been using Tarot cards for many, many, moons. Now that the weather is getting nice, I'll probably be spending a few afternoons a week in the park helping those cosmic seekers out there. <BR> <BR> Just wanted to stop in and say HI! <BR> <BR> Love and Light Sat, 25 Feb 2012 15:28:46 EST Daily Draw~Tuesday 24th of February As always, alternate interpretations are always welcomed--that's how we learn! <BR> <BR> Lesson or situation (Major Arcana): The Empress <BR> Someone I’ll meet or something I’ll learn about myself or someone I know (Court Card): Knight of Swords <BR> Advice or obstacle (Other Minor Arcana): 3 Cups (10 Pentacles flipped over) <BR> <BR> Nice...I saw this as a movie--the Empress got up and brought me over to an area (the Knight was using his sword to hack through the undergrowth and open u... Fri, 24 Feb 2012 18:18:51 EST Daily Draw ~ Thursday 23rd of February My card today was The Chariot. <BR> <BR> I continue to work at trying to find balance between career and home; work and play. For now I seem to be as successful as can be expected at it. <BR> <BR> I re-vamped the card with me sitting in my computer chair instead of a chariot, with my playful jack russell and a rougher element embodied in a wolf at my feet. I rein them in through force of will, rather than by physical restraints, and require them to coexist side by side. The structure and st...

I wonder if I can choose what (who) I fall in love with? or can I rekindle a past love? Right now I would choose to "fall in love" with a path that I loved once but didn't have the time or health to "chase my dream". I want to fall in love with sewing... pretty much any form of sewing, quilting, machine embroidery, creating the embroidery design, in other words become creative again! I'm already attracted and I only need to fan the coals that were ba...

ARGH!!! Thu, 16 Feb 2012 16:00:44 EST Daily Draw ~ Wednesday the 15th of February Knight of Cups, Reversed (Celtic Dragon deck) <BR> <BR> The first thing that struck me about the image on this card was the feminine aspect of the Knight who had such a dreamy look on her face. The male aspect is mounted on a dragon swimming through water. <BR> <BR> Since the Knight is a dreamer, I think the reversal of this card is reminding me that I need to take action as well as dream about the things I want to accomplish. I am one of those people who will dream, buy books, study, and... Wed, 15 Feb 2012 10:24:21 EST Daily Draw~Tuesday the 14th of February <em>26</em> Happy Valentine's Day! <BR> <BR> I pulled the 7 of Wands. In the Celtic Dragon deck, the image is a woman holding a sword in front of her, with a calm, determined look on her face. A dragon is curled around her back, supporting her in her stance. <BR> <BR> Another good card, affirming I'm on the right path. I think it is telling me that I'm doing good, and to stand firm. It's time to take some positive action in my quest for my Healthy Me. So I'm concentrating on making g...

Mon, 13 Feb 2012 19:08:30 EST Tarot Decks In the past I've had two decks one that is for my personal use (Celtic Dragon deck) and another for use with friends (Rider-Waite deck). When I moved home, all of my things were stored in my trunk so as not to be found by my parents. My car was totaled in a wreck. So what I'm asking is should I just buy a new dragon deck? (Dragons have been close to me and my guide was a dragon until I went to a deliverance service). Some people say he's still there just waiting for me to talk to him again. I... Mon, 13 Feb 2012 11:52:24 EST Spreads Do you like to use a variety of spreads for your readings, or tend to fall back on a particular one all the time? Do you keep ideas for spreads somewhere, or just in your head? Have you created your own spreads? What's your current favorite? <BR> <BR> I'll come back and post some of my answers in a bit - gotta get a start on my day. I'm curious about what all of you have to say! Sun, 12 Feb 2012 09:26:57 EST Daily Draw~Sunday 12th of Feb Two of Cups <BR> (Rider Waite) <BR> <BR> I don't even have to think hard about this one.

I'm taking that as a hopeful sign that the worst of the turbulence is behind me. I have to admit that I DID have a much better day today! <em>224</em> Wed, 8 Feb 2012 18:11:58 EST Daily Draw Tuesday 7th of February The issue at hand: The Empress - reversed <BR> Its origin: Five Wands - reversed <BR> Its likely effect: Four Cups <BR> <BR> To me, the Empress represents me at my ideal center... the part that has much to give, is bursting with creative potential and generosity, is patient, earthy, and instinctual. I am happiest when I am in this flow - this state of being. And I haven't been there lately. Being separate from my "inner empress" has made me too introspective and moody. The truth is, I haven'... Tue, 7 Feb 2012 07:45:09 EST Daily Draw ~ Monday 6th February Rider/Waite ~ Moon <BR> <BR> Since this is about the third time in 3 days I've been told it is not just essential but absolutely critical that I trust my intuition over the next three years. I guess that means --- three times being the charm --- that I trust in that small quiet voice within. Unfortunately that doesn't mean that it will be easy, it might even be scary or I might feel like I'm crazy. So far my controlling personality hasn't made much progress... I might as well switch my alleg...

On the other hand, according to, both the Knight and the World are about travel. We'll just have to see... <BR> Mon, 6 Feb 2012 17:56:37 EST Daily Draw~Sunday 5th of February Lesson or situation (Major Arcana): The Hermit <BR> Someone I’ll meet or something I’ll learn about myself or someone I know (Court Card): Page of Cups <BR> Advice or obstacle (Other Minor Arcana): 2 Pentacles <BR> <BR> I'm being advised to maintain a balance today as I go within to light self-love. (Self-love 3 days in a row! Wow, this is big for me right now!)

This does follow from SLNA111's interpretation of yesterday's draw. Wow, you are GOOD! <BR> Sat, 4 Feb 2012 15:41:18 EST Daily Draw~Friday 3rd of February I could use some help with this one! <BR> <BR> Lesson or situation (Major Arcana): The Empress <BR> Someone I’ll meet or something I’ll learn about myself or someone I know (Court Card): Queen of Swords <BR> Advice or obstacle (Other Minor Arcana): 10 Wands (reversed) <BR> AND 5 Pentacles jumped out <BR> <BR> I am incubating something, and to watch out for feelings of loss and not to shirk my responsibilities. <BR> <BR> Any other ideas? <BR> Fri, 3 Feb 2012 19:54:53 EST *waves hello* hellos! I joined because I like tarot and quite frequently incoporate it into some of my meditations. Fri, 3 Feb 2012 15:26:23 EST Do you have a reading ritual? Do you shuffle and draw a certain way every time? Do you meditate or light a candle? Do you have any other special rituals to help you focus? <BR> <BR> I don't tend to observe a lot of ceremony, but I do take a few moments to quiet my brain and breathe first. Then I like to pull the cards from a fish-pond of cards that have been swirled across the table. It's a little strange - I always feel like my hand is drawn to select the next card, but I don't know which one until I touch it. I push th... Thu, 2 Feb 2012 19:10:45 EST Daily Draw~Thursday 2nd of February The issue at hand: The Moon - reversed <BR> Its origin: Page Wands <BR> Its likely effect: Three Cups - reversed <BR> <BR> There is a need to see things from a clearer, fresher perspective. Focusing too much on fears and negativities without seeing the larger picture, can lead to a skewed or unrealistic perspective. This bleeds over into into other areas and makes Miss Mary a very humorless girl indeed! Ground, clear, refresh. Remember where your passion comes from! Don't forget to celebrat...

That I will finally nurture myself and improve my health?

I'm getting help with this (Ace of Wands=magic wand). This will improve my health tremendously.

I saw the people in Judgement clapping, and it was like a big party, with the angel playing his trumpet. The pentacle literally fell out of the sky into the Queen's lap, and the people in the 5 of Pentacles went... Sat, 28 Jan 2012 15:26:48 EST New chick Hello to all the tarot people! My name is Ande and I am thrilled to see a group like this on sparkpeople. I belonged to sparkpeople several years ago and actually lost a lot of weight but lost interest because I couldn't find groups that appealed to me. I am excited to see this group and hope to share and learn from all of you! (and lose weight!) Fri, 27 Jan 2012 22:12:49 EST Daily Draw ~ Friday 27th of January Rider/Waite ~ Emperor <BR> <BR> It's time to reassess my "kingdom" and figure out where the foundation is solid and where it needs mending.

I ate out of anxiety, and the anxiety also kept me away from people... Fri, 27 Jan 2012 17:37:38 EST Daily Draw ~ Thursday, 26th of January Rider/Waite ~ Hermit <BR> <BR> I seem to be doubling up on cards again... this is the 3rd time I've gotten a card I had gotten recently, Ace of Wands, High Priestess, and this one, Hermit... It's time for me to withdraw from the world to search and organize, preparing to go back into the world better prepared for sharing again.

I'm going to discover something/someone that I'll love at a soul level, that I know is right, but I'm going to have to speak or do something that I'm afraid to say or do in order to realize it.

To me, the Ace really looked like an exclamation point today!

I'm undergoing a new beginning, and I'm advised to leave the past behind and rejoice in this. <BR> Mon, 23 Jan 2012 13:28:23 EST Daily Draw - Sunday Jan 22nd Hi, <BR> <BR> Rider Waite - Wheel of Fortune <BR> <BR> Certainly a day of change as went from feeling well this morning to not so good this afternoon. A reminder of if i want to change - ie be healthier etc, i need to make those changes. I'll probably have ups and downs whilst on this journey but with wisdom, seeing the truth and those changes, i can be like the sphinx and be at the top of the wheel. <BR> <BR> So, i know which side of the wheel would i rather be on :-) The one going u...

Let's see: I'm feeling new and fresh after my realization, but I need to watch out for feelings of regret (over the past?) and focus on what remains. <BR> Fri, 20 Jan 2012 12:01:12 EST Daily Draw~Thursday 19th of January Lesson or situation (Major Arcana): The Tower <BR> Someone I’ll meet or something I’ll learn about myself or someone I know (Court Card): Page of Wands <BR> Advice or obstacle (Other Minor Arcana): 3 Swords <BR> <BR> Prediction: It looks like lots of lies and "secrets" I've been keeping from myself are going to be revealed, bringing a new beginning.

Looks like I may have a painful day. Let's see...learning how to manage things, I may be more interested in learning than being empathetic, and I may be hurt by someone. <BR> <BR> Well, not half an hour later I got it: The Emperor is my father. ...

Am I even close? After the past couple of days, I hope I am! <BR> <BR> Reality: I posted a lot today, including revealing information about myself that veeery few know. It's a huge move forward for ... Tue, 17 Jan 2012 17:51:55 EST Meanings of cards Do the Rider Waite cards have the same meanings for everyone, or do they adapt themselves to your understanding of them? What about other Tarot decks? If you say, "For this spread, I wish these cards to take on the Rider Waite meanings," does it happen? Is this what is meant by the cards taking on one's energies? Tue, 17 Jan 2012 14:43:31 EST Daily Draw~Monday 16th of January Lesson or situation (Major Arcana): Temperance <BR> Someone I’ll meet or something I’ll learn about myself or someone I know (Court Card): Knight of Pentacles <BR> Advice or obstacle (Other Minor Arcana): 3 Cups <BR> <BR> Prediction for the day: I read this as take it easy after binging yesterday on bread (I have a wheat sensitivity so today I'm reaping the rewards!!). That slow and steady wins the race and I should celebrate after being able to stop myself yesterday. We'll see if this... Mon, 16 Jan 2012 18:12:40 EST Daily Draw ~ Monday 15th January Rider/Waite ~ Queen of Pentacles <BR> <BR> It's time to develop a new program. Hummm, I think I need to spend today planning my new food menu for the week. I wonder if I can make any progress... I'll just draw on the energy of the Queen. Sun, 15 Jan 2012 19:10:42 EST Daily Draw ~Saturday 14th of January Rider/Waite ~ 2 of Wands <BR> <BR> I've got a couple of choices today and can do only one... Which will I choose. Humm, even though the day isn't done and I could have another choice and the one I'm thinking of doesn't seem to be so very important. Although it may be an important enough decision that it will lead to more decisions of the same which will lead me to a more healthy life! On my way home from a volunteer event, I was VERY hungry and it was just a bit past dinner time... my first ... Sat, 14 Jan 2012 22:43:43 EST Daily Draw~Saturday January 14th Lesson or situation (Major Arcana): Death <BR> Someone I’ll meet or something I’ll learn about myself or someone I know (Court Card): Queen Cups <BR> Advice or obstacle (Other Minor Arcana): 6 Cups <BR> <BR> I love drawing cards that indicate change--it's fun to see what will happen! I'm changing at the core, and a reflection of that is I changed a little phrase on my SparkPage--from "background in physical sciences" to "PhD in chemistry". And I believe the Queen of Cups and the 6 of Cu... Sat, 14 Jan 2012 22:42:58 EST Daily Draw ~ Friday 13th of January Rider/Waite ~ Lovers <BR> <BR> I have a choice to make today. I am aware that there will be things that come up in the day that I may "fall in love with" and I will need to make a choice if it fits into my life or not. I am eager to find out what I will be "falling in love" with and what choice I do make. Fri, 13 Jan 2012 03:23:34 EST New to tarot Hi, All, <BR> <BR> I am relatively new to tarot. I've got the book "The Tarot Directory" to help me out, and I've looked around the web (lots!) about learning it. <BR> <BR> The one thing that I've found that is helping me is a suggestion on another site (forget which one) where someone suggested to divide the deck into Major Arcana, the Face cards, and the other Minor Arcana. Then to pull from each in the morning: Major Arcana: the lesson or situation for the day; Face cards: someone... Thu, 12 Jan 2012 01:33:05 EST Daily Draw ~ Tuesday 10th of January Rider/Waite ~ 2 of Pentacles <BR> <BR> Juggling... only two! It feels like 2 million. I am trying so hard to get items integrated into my life like drinking more water, meditating daily, keeping my daily task list updated and am being marginally successful. So maybe it's juggling my un-integrated life and my integrated life. I do feel like I'm being pulled in two directions... like the pushmepullyou animal from Doctor Dolittle.I trust as the items become more integrated, I'll not feel so pul... Tue, 10 Jan 2012 23:28:01 EST Daily Draw ~ Monday 9th January Rider/Waite ~ Hermit <BR> <BR> Yes, I've been being the Hermit... I have pulled into my "play" room and come out only to eat and sleep (although been having trouble with that). I "have" to go out into the world tomorrow, I think I'd rather be the hermit... I'm not looking forward to it! I have been *trying* to do the "hermit" thing and shine the light on the area of my life that are starving for the light. The biggest light is going on my newest enlightenment that I am ADD (thankfully not AD... Tue, 10 Jan 2012 00:44:54 EST Daily Draw ~ Sunday, 8th January Rider/Waite ~ 10 of Cups <BR> <BR> I almost laughed when I pulled this card. This has not been a good weekend, I have been have major problems sleeping because of pain and other heath issues and I get the "Happy Family" card. Not only do I not feel happy, but I feel down right depressed (not particularly normal for me) and I have burrowed into my room and have cut myself off from any connections except online. <BR> <BR> In reading one of my sources on tarot meanings this quote came up "Thi... Mon, 9 Jan 2012 00:19:26 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday 7th of January Rider/Waite ~ Hierophant <BR> <BR> The Hierophant is hear to ease the fear that I'm facing because of my weight and other health problems. He tells me that the past can teach me what I need to learn and to reassure me I'm never alone... comforting indeed! Sat, 7 Jan 2012 14:27:01 EST Daily Draw ~ Thursday, 5th of January Rider/Waite ~ 3 of Cups <BR> <BR> Looks like I'm going to be strengthening relationship bonds today. Must be on this site as I'm not going anywhere today and not expecting anyone to come by. Thu, 5 Jan 2012 17:33:52 EST Daily Draw ~ Wednesday 4th of January Rider/Waite ~ Ace of Swords <BR> <BR> I'm ready to sharpen the mind and move forward! Wed, 4 Jan 2012 22:48:53 EST Daily Draw ~ Tuesday 3rd of January Rider/Waite ~ The Moon <BR> <BR> Ok... so I'm going through a "crazy" period and that's what it can be a time of craziness, it doesn't have to be permanent! I just need to trust in the process and trust in myself and I'll make it through intact and at a way better more creative space. That is heartening. Things don't seem to be going really well right now. I can't seem to find any solid ground to stand on. Just knowing that I'm *really* not crazy that I can get through this with patience and... Tue, 3 Jan 2012 14:20:50 EST Happy New Year! Daily Draw 1/1/12 I did a draw for myself for 2012, Celtic Cross layout. <BR> <BR> 1. 2 Wands (inverted) <BR> 2.

Judgement <BR> 10. 6 Swords <BR> <BR> I fear 2012. My primary question was too undefined, but wondering about death. I have 2 very elderly parents, DH is having a pacemaker installed soon, an adult son in recovery, and I worry about myself... Sun, 1 Jan 2012 22:45:40 EST Daily Draw ~ Wednesday 21st December Rider/Waite ~ The Emperor <BR> <BR> And down the lane I go to add enthusiasm and control to my life and the projects around me. I was looking to wait until after Christmas, but if today's the day, I guess I'll have to change my plans a bit to take advantage of the Emperor AND the solstice. <BR> <BR> Happy Solstice/Yule and Blessings to all... Wed, 21 Dec 2011 17:51:54 EST Daily Draw ~ Tuesday 20th December Rider/Waite ~ Empress <BR> <BR> Although my health program is going ok, it's not going as fast as I wish it to! The Empress is here to tell me that things (thought-forms) coming into fruition are fragile and need tended lovingly. I need to not rail against having to pay more attention, but rejoice in the ability to give the loving time and energy to this fragile and newly formed life. As it grows it will need less and less attention as it will have become stronger and more able to survive on... Tue, 20 Dec 2011 18:07:17 EST Daily Draw ~ Sunday, 19th December Rider/Waite ~ Strength <BR> <BR> I'm being reminded that strength... true strength comes from the higher feelings controlling the base feelings. That is reassuring as right now I don't feel very strong! But I guess that comes with practice! Mon, 19 Dec 2011 01:57:45 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday, 17th December Rider/Waite ~ Moon <BR> <BR> Hummmm... I had been wondering how to spend my day and I guess I got my answer! Journaling, writing, drawing, sewing, or being otherwise creative! Tomorrow may be time to get down to business, but today it's time to write out what I need to learn from my psyche! <BR> <BR> I've been working on trying to find out how to get past my emotional blocks that keep me from losing weight... I guess I got my answer. That's what I love about tarot... "Ask and ye shall rece... Sat, 17 Dec 2011 16:33:57 EST Daily Draw ~ Friday, 16th of December Rider/Waite ~ Queen of Pentacles and Judgment <BR> <BR> While drawing my normal one card a second decided to ride along... The queen advises me that this is a time of growth and development where I need to use my good sense and determined ideas to bring into a reality a health plan and exercise. With the judgment card present, it says that I need to pull up from within some of my “old wounds" around weight lose, exercise, and health issues to forgive them and let them go so I can be healed t... Sat, 17 Dec 2011 00:42:16 EST Daily Draw ~ Thursday, 15th of December Rider/Waite ~ 10 of Wands <BR> <BR> Whatever my energy has been invested in is integrating into my life. <BR> <em>244</em> <BR> I have been working *very* hard to change my diet... to mostly alkaline foods. It has been a stretch and didn't figure that it was working... I was keeping on keeping on, but didn't think that my body but particularly not a mind set change was taking place. Thanx to this lovely tarot reading, I now know that what I have been doing has been changing patterns... it...

CARD 2: Ace of Water, Going with the Flow <BR> 3. CARD 3: Four of Fire, Participation <BR> <BR> I’m preparing for a client with depression today. I’m hoping he does have a positive transformation. Going with the flow is important to being happy. And four of wands is a celebration card. I am expecting a good session.

CARD 2: King of Fire, The Creator <BR> 3. CARD 3: XXI, Completion <BR> <BR> I have pretty much finished moving into my new PC (early Christmas present). Even with Laplink’s PCMover, it was quite a feat. Now I can move on and do something else with my time. That must be what the King of Fire is about. The idea behind getting me the new computer was to give me more space... Wed, 30 Nov 2011 17:44:18 EST Daily Draw ~ Tuesday 29th November Rider/Waite ~ The Hermit <BR> <BR> OK. I got 9s for several days, now I have the master 9... the Hermit. I think I need to pay attention to the meaning of 9. I have completed a long life of paying attention to all that needs to be done. Now, I'm retired and I feel the need to become a "hermit" and from the 9s that are appearing in my readings, I'm correct in withdrawing from the busy-ness of my "former" life and start my retirement in withdrawal and introspection. This isn't easy at this tim... Tue, 29 Nov 2011 17:37:49 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday, 26th November Rider Waite ~ 9 of Cups <BR> <BR> Am I getting a kick in the butt or what?! I'm in a funk today and ache all over... and I get the "wish" card??? I think what it's trying to tell me is that I need to let go of the negative and look to the positive and I can change my day around. When I think positively (and not positively negative) I can plant the seeds of emotional well-being that will increase daily... maybe I should pay attention! Sat, 26 Nov 2011 16:28:34 EST Daily Draw ~ Friday 25th of November Rider/Waite ~ 5 Swords <BR> <BR> I'm *finally* getting to a list of what I want included in my daily/weekly life in order to schedule my day in retirement... a lot of things that aren't so nice about how I feel about myself are coming up. This is the perfect card to have at this time. It is advising me to be careful that I don't take umbrage and fight (myself) but to take what I'm learning and grow from it. <BR> <BR> Reading and interpreting tarot never stops amazing me at what the cards me... Fri, 25 Nov 2011 16:41:24 EST Daily Draw ~ Wednesday, 23rd November Rider/Waite ~ 9 of Swords <BR> <BR> Stop thinking so much! AND stop thinking so negatively! I will sleep better... without waking up nightly if I am kinder to myself and give myself a break. There is an old saying... "Love thy neighbor, as thyself". It took me many years to realize that two VERY important words are at the end the sentence... *as thyself*! I need to love myself and be kind to myself, then I don't have to try to be so kind to my neighbor, it will be second nature. <BR> <BR> T...

CARD 2: Seven of Rainbows, Patience <BR> 3. CARD 3: Two of Rainbows, Moment to Moment <BR> <BR> I have an interview today with a room full of recruiters. This is a positive spread for the job front, I think. The queen is associated with good news in work. The seven is a turning point card. The two is also about changes. Tue, 22 Nov 2011 13:56:18 EST Daily Draw ~ Monday 21st November Rider/Waite ~ 9 of Cups <BR> <BR> Hummm... I must be doing something right! I got the "best" card of the minor arcana! Right now, I can't say it is true or not, but I'm still retired and that's a good thing! I'm trying *VERY* hard to get things organized and rearranged and I'm not having too much luck... maybe I should just give it up until after the first of the year! <BR> <BR> Cups are emotional being so maybe although I'm not physically done with stuff, I have emotionally come to the sw... Tue, 22 Nov 2011 01:12:07 EST Daily Draw ~ Saturday, 19th November Rider/Waite ~ 5 of Swords <BR> <BR> "Pride can make us blind to our own limits and weaknesses." It is time for me to look at what my limits and weaknesses are and work on strengthening them. One of them is focus... it is causing me to fail in a lot of ways. Knowing about it will help me have the where-with-all to keep the negative results of a focus problem down to a bare minimum. <BR> <BR> The 5 of Swords shows you what the problem is and lets you know there is a way out... it may take som... Sat, 19 Nov 2011 20:14:51 EST Daily Draw ~ Sunday 13th of November Rider/Waite ~ 5 of Cups <BR> <BR> The 5 of Cups is definitely describing my mood today! I am feeling down about not being consistent about my weight, about not being further along in preparing for Christmas, about not having my list of things I'm wanting to do done and prioritized, about not having my house clean, about not... well, you get it, I'm feeling like I'm not good enough and not doing enough! And yet there are two full cups behind me that I'm not paying attention to... one of those...

This is a time for logic, facts, and reason... ultimately balance. I am re-adjusting my life for retirement and I need to apply these things, I need to be cool-headed and let the wisdom of such prevail. If it does, things will balance out and my heart and head can rule together. I can learn how to do my "work" and learn how to play and have them balanced. Yet, I need to decided such with the wisdom and balance. And... Fri, 11 Nov 2011 16:05:37 EST
