As is usual when I want to take part in word of the week, I took a peek through my photos that I’ve snapped over the past 7 days, and this week my word had to be tarot.
To be honest, most weeks my word could be tarot, but this week, and the past few weeks, I’ve been absorbed in it more than usual. I watch deck openings & reviews on YouTube, I follow and read blogs on the topic, I am absorbing as much information as possible on my favourite interests.
This month I’ve also been sort of taking part in the #WithinWithoutAdvice challenge on Instagram which I’ve been loving. Though I started it late & haven’t been consistent with it (thank you illness!) I’ve found the readings I’ve got from it so powerful. It’s definitely a ‘go deep or go home’ type spread and I’ve been using my Shadowscapes deck for within & without, and then my Crazy Sexy Love Notes for the advice.
I’ve also done a few readings this week for friends, belated ones that I had planned to do just as I got sick with the cold from hell! But I finally got round to them and am hoping they help them gain some guidance.
For me, tarot isn’t about seeing the future in detail, but it’s a fabulous tool for self-exploration and understanding situations from different angles. It’s not for everyone but I find it truly enlightening and helpful.
Have you ever had a tarot reading? Or are you not a fan?
