ZMONEY ~ Sorry to hear about your class. I've had classes, read books, and other things, but the daily (almost) practice and reading of the daily draws and posts on this forum has taught me more in less time than all the classes and books I've learned from. ~

~ I'm so happy to be here and am learning so much from each of you. Thanx to all of you for being my teachers!!!

Blessings,
Collien~~~

You have receive a talent, the best way to say thank you for the talent is to use it.

ZMONEY, I don't believe that the cards are picked randomly. I think that whatever card you're picking is a message--maybe you're not aware of the question you're asking!

A_WISE_WOMAN - No, I don't ask a question. My intention right now is to get familiar w/ the cards & learn on a bite-size level since I'm brand new to this. The class isn't until March 3 & unfortunately I've had to cancel going since my budget no longer allows for it.

Hi, ZMONEY, that sounds very nice. Do you ask a question around it too--like a daily draw? You know, I've found in this forum some spreads as word documents that were posted. I just started using them--they're great! I can't remember exactly where they are, but I'm sure that, if I found them rather easily, that you can too. And if you can't, holler. I'll help you look!

And, though it's not on this thread, but I had to ask: how was the class? Anything you can share with us other newbies that maybe we can learn from?

I also have the Tiny Tarot deck, just got it yesterday :)

Right now I do a quick grounding & centering, shuffle until a card feels right to draw, then answer these questions on paper before finding out what the meaning is:

- First thoughts & impressions
- Overall feeling about card

Then I find out the meaning & write out my personal associations. I also find a quote related to it that sums up the keywords/sense of the card.

Helsdottir, that's a lovely invocation - I really liked that.

LES24601MIS, that's cool you're able to do a reading at work. I'd be way too distracted with everyone wandering around and poking their noses in to see what I'm doing! I also like using candles for focus in meditation and prayer... something about it brings you to center.

A_Wise_Woman, I'd never be able to see those cards! I'm one of those people who keeps a pair of reading glasses in every room, and still manages to not be able to find a pair when I need them!

Smilinclouds, sounds like you're making the best you can of things. I know it can be kind of a fine line to walk, being who you are v.s. it not being worth the heartbreak it would cause. Hope you're able to find some space of your own soon.

I"m hoping that I'll be moving in the next few months and will be able to get an actual deck of cards. Right now I use the Goddess Tarot android app and it's pretty good for an app even if I can't get my hands on the deck itself...very gentle feeling with them not hurried or rushed.

SMILINCLOUDS, I have the "Tiny Tarot". A deck that's literally about 1/2" by 1". Easy to carry, tougher on older eyes! Maybe you could use that.

I developed an invocation which I use before a serious reading, or a reading for a client. (silently or aloud, depending on the circumstance)

"Blessed Sophia, Mother of Wisdom, Author of the Creative Word that spake the Universe into being, grant us a Knowing in this Matter."

other things vary. if reading for a client, I sometimes let them choose the deck, out of three that I have handy for that day.

I used to have a ritual where I would purify the cards by letting them sit in the sunlight (usually my window) while I laid out my reading cloth and set up my some stones and my dragon (he was kind of my guardian at the time). After that I would shuffle the cards then do a reading.
Now because of living arrangements...living with my parents who consider this "evil" I have a tarot app on my phone. I open the app...take a few moments to center myself and do a reading. Miss my cards though.

I'm actually pretty good at focusing. Sometimes I will shuffle until I hear "Stop!", sometimes I will fan out the cards in my hand, and go for the one that calls--funny, but usually it's at or very near a spot where there's a gap in the otherwise pretty evenly spread cards...

I tend to focus on my question and place it clearly in my mind while i shuffle.... when I know the question is solid i draw the top card. I do this the same way with spreads. When I am at home I try to create a bit of atmosphere (a candle) but at work they do not smile upon fire :) so i usually just walk about my office as i am readying myself to draw.

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?

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 them around with my fingertips until I get that "YES" sensation.
