“A Tarot reading changed my life.” One woman’s story

People from all walks of life say they’ve experienced life-changing Tarot readings via personal study or from skilled card readers.

Here’s one Londoner’s story.

Hannah

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotA twenty-nine-year-old London journalist and social media expert with a degree from Kingston University, Hannah had long felt something was missing from her life.

Despite a successful blog, a stable relationship, close friends, and a beautiful home, by October 2016, “I felt like things weren’t aligning in my head the way they should be,” she reports.

During an American tour that included the mysterious Louisiana Bayou country – a centre for African-based spiritual folkways, her tour guide asked if she wanted a Tarot reading.

She’d left London seeking to understand where her life focus should be, and to come home with a clear idea of what she was intended to achieve with her life. So the answer was naturally “yes.”

The reader told Hannah she needed to pay more attention to the people around her and less attention to her own career, such as to her blog, vlog, and other online activities.

Hannah says she came away from the Tarot reading convinced that “to feel truly satisfied with myself, I need to focus on people… not on myself and my work… appreciating people and the moments without work and social media clouding over it.”

As she puts it, the cards “literally changed everything.”

Today she refers to the day of her reading as “The Hannah Gale Spiritual Awakening Day.” You can read about Hannah’s Tarot experience here.

The excitement of a Tarot Cards Party – and the history behind them

Do you get excited about holidays such as Halloween, Christmas or Easter? Do you have fun dressing in a costume, or receiving a brightly wrapped gift, or dying eggs in festive colours? Most of us do, even though we don’t necessarily believe in hauntings, Father Christmas or the Easter Bunny.

The same principal works for Tarot cards. A Tarot reading is exciting and fun, even if you’re a sceptic about fortune telling!

Long a fun pastime, Tarot cards date from the Renaissance. The first playing-card decks were brought to Europe from the Middle East in the 1300s, and by the 1400s printed decks were widely produced. In fact, playing cards competed with devotional images as the most common uses for woodcuts. Wealthy gamers played with hand-painted decks, sometimes with added cards, such as our modern Jokers.

Because all gamblers are aware of the power of “luck,” it’s not surprising that the cards were quickly associated with good (or bad) fortune, and by extension, with fortune-telling.

The first documented Tarot decks date back to the mid-1400s in Italy, where added cards bore allegorical illustrations about such things as “Strength” and “Justice.”

The word “Tarot” probably comes from an Italian word related to “fun.” And that brings us back to the fun you can have with a Tarot reading.

Remember, you don’t have to give credence to ghosts and witches to have fun on Halloween. And you don’t have to believe in fortune telling to experience the excitement of a Tarot card reading. But if those cards predict a charismatic new lover, a happy job change, or a financial windfall – well, you just might find yourself becoming a believer!

Feeling trapped? The Eight of Swords can set you free

Are you feeling bound up, unable to act, blind to your options? If so, don’t be surprised to see the Eight of Swords in your Tarot reading.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotIn the Herbal Tarot Deck, this card shows a seated figure bound and blindfolded, walled in by eight swords thrust into the ground; however, a giant plant grows right from under him, one that Native Americans used as an herbal remedy. The image in the Rider Waite deck is similar, except there’s no plant and the figure is a standing woman.

Either way, the suggestion is clear: you need to free yourself to see clearly and take action on a limiting situation.

And you can! Eights indicate strength. When they show up, they mean you have the power to assert control, with beneficial results. Eights also represent boundaries – in this case, the meaning is that you’ve set or accepted too many boundaries for yourself, or the wrong boundaries. It’s time to break free.

The suit of Swords often implies negativity. In this case, you may be in a negative situation – fenced in, bound, and blind to reality – but the good news is that this card encourages you to escape, and to know that you can do this.

Sometimes the Eight of Swords can represent your wish to avoid confrontations because you don’t want to hurt or anger others. Of course, this is admirable, but this attitude can keep you from acting in your best interests, especially when those around you are being selfish and inconsiderate.

This card is sometimes called “The Test,” because it shows that you’re being tested, perhaps by a person, by a situation such as your job, or by life in general. You’ve got a chance to show you have “the right stuff,” the inner strength to meet the demands put upon you. So make the effort – however tough it might be – and rise to the occasion. The Tarot believes you can.

Don’t be afraid. Trust in your ability to choose the right path, and you will.

King of Wands – a man of action, creativity, passion and energy

Depicting wildlife, fairies, and gnomes, the Forest Folklore Tarot is inspired by an ancient woodland in Southern England, not that far from where I live. In this deck, the King of Wands sports pointed pixie ears and sits smiling and confident, clasping a thin wand with a glowing tip. In the traditional Rider Waite deck, he’s dressed as a Medieval king and holds a six-foot staff that sprouts leaves.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot LondonKings signify dynamic forces and action or the need to take action. The suit of Wands reminds us about creativity, intuition, and inner strength, as well as passion and energy. It’s also associated with the element of fire – hot, wild, and unpredictable!

The King of Wands, then, is a card of action, creativity, passion, and energy.

Because it’s a court card, if you pull this king he may stand for qualities in your own personality, describe you completely, or point to another person, all depending on whereabouts he sits in your spread.

If a person, he’s an adult (or an “old soul” type of child), a mature man (probably forty plus), ofteb ginger- or sandy-haired with bluey green eyes. He is cheerful, enthusiastic, self-confident, and outdoorsy or athletic. The type to move mountains with his enthusiasm, he lights a fire under anyone and gets things moving. As a King, he’s probably a boss or has strong leadership qualities. (Note: The card may represent a woman if she is strong-willed.) This person is ikely to be a fire sign in astrology: Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.

When the King stands for qualities rather than for an actual person, it can mean enhancing your own self-confidence, creativity, and leadership abilities – you have a strong potential for all of these.

This King is here to remind you of the need to have a vision and goals. If you’re experiencing challenges in life, the card encourages you to “keep your eye on the prize” and know that your journey may have bumps along the way to a positive outcome.

The King of Wands may herald an upcoming and unexpected opportunity, perhaps related to your work, to something creative, or to a social or romantic situation. Speaking of romance, the King of Wands is a good omen for a relationship – perhaps a positive change will occur soon in an existing relationship, or a new one is on the horizon!
