Cards That Keep Coming Back

November 12th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Here’s another fun and interesting installment from Nalani of Rebel Tarot.

In this clip she talks about cards that keep showing up again and again in a reading, or in your readings in general.

As Nalani points out, when the cards keep coming back – pay attention!! They’re trying to tell you something worth hearing.

Playing Cards as Tarot

August 1st, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Using regular playing cards for Tarot readings loses the fun of the imagery, and of course eliminates the main aspect of what makes Tarot what it is – the Major Arcana.

But sometimes all you have on hand are playing cards and you still want to do a reading. You can.

It’s just a matter of having a consistent system of converting the suits of the Tarot into those of your standard poker deck.

My typical system of conversion is:

Cups = Hearts

Pentacles = Diamonds

Wands = Clubs

Swords = Spades

Of course, I’m not the only one who uses this system. It’s the one I’ve seen most often.

In fact, it’s the one described in the video below by Nalani of Rebel Tarot. In her clip she colourfully explains an easy way to remember it.

Take a look …

Answering the Yes or No Questions

June 16th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

I’ve posted some videos demonstrating Yes/No Tarot spreads before, but the video below is a little bit different.

In it, Nalani of Rebel Tarot entertainingly describes how to look at the energies of the cards themselves rather than using a particular spread to determine whether an answer is in the affirmative or not.

It might be a little confusing at first, but I like what she has to say. In fact, it’s exactly what I do when faced with a yes/no type question.

4 of Wands from the Smith Waite Tarot

Typically the ‘positive’ cards mean yes, while the ‘negative’ cards mean no. But sometimes that’s too simplistic a system.

For instance, if someone asks ‘am I going to lose my house?’ and the very happy 4 of Wands appears, I would likely read that as ‘yes, things are going to work out all right with your housing situation’ rather than, ‘yes, you’re going to lose your home.’

It’s not always so obvious, and sometimes using a Tarot layout makes this type of reading easier. But take a look at what Rebel Tarot has to say and try it out for yourself.
