Cat in a Box

Cat’s sure like boxes, even when they’re way too small.

Here’s my sweet man, Carl JK, standing in the Science Tarot box … what a nut! (but it’s a great deck!)

Political Questions

September 17th, 2017 § Comments Off on Political Questions § permalink

Tarot doesn’t have to be just a tool for personal self-development and/or readings about what’s going on in your own life. It’s also a great tool for gaining insight into all sorts of non-personal issues, including questions about politics and events on the world stage.

I’ve been pulling cards about politicians and political questions/circumstances for many years now, and I always find them fascinating reads. If you aren’t already doing that yourself, but are interested in trying it out, I’ve listed a few possible questions you might ask your deck below …

•What is the nature of ______________ (name of politician or political player) with regards to ______________ (circumstance or political question)?

•Why are ______________ (name of politician or political player) acting as they are regarding ______________ (circumstance or political question)?

•What are the pros and cons, or different view points regarding ______________ (circumstance or political question)? ← pull two or more cards representing various perspectives

•How does ______________ (circumstance, political question, or political player) impact our democracy?

•How is ______________ (circumstance or political question) likely to play out if things keep moving as they are now?

•What are the biggest issues facing the ______________ (world, country, city or neighbourhood) right now? And what type of action is necessary to help correct what might be going wrong, or support what might be going well? ← pull two or more cards

And on a more personal level …

•How might I act towards achieving political change or support in ______________ (circumstance or political question)?

•How do my personal feelings/situations impact my response to ______________ (circumstance or political question)?

•What can I do to try to understand and connect with other people’s feelings/situations surrounding ______________ (circumstance or political question)?

This list is, of course, just a sample of what you might ask; the options are virtually unlimited. Come up with your own questions and see where your cards take you.

And if you have more than one deck, try testing out the same question with various sets of cards. I find it’s especially interesting comparing the different voices, and it gives me an opportunity to get to know decks I don’t use as often.

How to Recount Your Dreams

August 10th, 2017 § Comments Off on How to Recount Your Dreams § permalink

According to this School of Life video from Lazy Chief, the trick to recounting our dreams isn’t so much about the dreams themselves and how interesting, confusing, or exciting they might be, but rather how we tell the story.

Narration itself can be difficult, and whether you’re trying to narrate a dream, a Tarot reading, or a trip to an exotic land, the art of telling the story is the challenge, not finding a good story to tell.

Whether they’re about cats, or cards, or sewing machines, or space ships – where do ideas come from?

Take a look at the short video below from Andrew Norton to get some idea …

Tarot’s Ace of Wands often reflects the seed of inspiration, that first spark that gets us motivated to do something new, or to do something old in a new way.

In the video below by Blnd, they don’t mention the Ace of Wands, but they do describe the ‘carrot’ as something that gets us moving. And really, doesn’t a carrot look an awful lot like an Ace of Wands, just upside down and in vegetable form? At least I think so.

Take a look at The Ultimate Guide to Inspiration, and maybe chase on after a carrot sometime today…

The Nature video below isn’t about Tarot, but it is about one of this Tarot reader’s favourite companions … the cat.

Take a look at some feline history to see why humans (including the Queen of Wands) grew to be so close with these furry friends → Cat Domestication: From Farm to Sofas
