The Three of Swords doesn’t always play out as you’d expect

My American friend Kathryn is scared of the doctor!  It’s strange, as she comes from a family of medics, but nevertheless, she doesn’t like visiting the surgery. In the town where she lives, doctors are proactive in encouraging patients to get tested for various things, such as diabetes and kidney function.  So, the medical receptionist called Kathryn to book a blood test, but Kathryn didn’t want to go and politely refused.  The receptionist called again. And again.  After several calls, Kathryn still downright refused to go. She’s healthy, feels great and absolutely did not want a needle poked in her arm without specific good reason.

That wouldn’t be allowed in England as it would be seen as a breach of patient confidentiality.

Anyway, Kathryn got really upset with the receptionist, who was continuing to call and scaremonger her into having blood taken. Eventually started to panic, Kathryn drew herself a Tarot card – and was horrified to pull the Three of Swords. This card can be particularly upsetting as its imagery – especially in the Rider Waite deck, is of a floating heart being pierced by three sharp swords. It signifies a breakup and loss, usually accompanied by intense sadness, emotional suffering and great disappointment.

Kathryn viewed the card as sign of doom and gloom, heartbreak on the horizon and reason to be worried. But actually, the image couldn’t be more appropriate for a simple blood test! A heart – the supplier of blood, and three sharp stabbing implements!! (Needles in arms…) It didn’t automatically mean heartbreak.

Still, whatever the pictoral and emotional connotation of the card, the fact that it appeared alongside a dispute over a blood test meant there would be no harm in getting the test to make sure there were no physical problems with her heart.

And, thankfully, the bottom line here is that Kathryn is absolutely fine. She had the test and now she can relax in the knowledge that everything is functioning as it should. But here’s what’s interesting…

The bullying receptionist got fired!!  The doctor had overheard her being nasty to Kathryn on the phone, and it turned out that she had a history of being overly forceful to the point of upsetting patients.  Feedback to the surgery frequently stated that the medical care was great but the admin woman was offensive.

So Kathryn’s negative and distressing relationship with the receptionist came to an abrupt end as the woman lost her job due to her unacceptable behaviour. The Tarot card’s message was fulfilled twofold.

Have you ever been faced with a card that you didn’t like, couldn’t interpret or provided a mixed message?  If you’re stuck at a crossroads of have a difficult decision to make, I’ll be happy to show you the way. You can get in touch here.

Connie’s Story – How a Tarot Reading Can Change Your Life

Individuals from all walks of life say the Tarot has changed their lives, so here’s another story in our series about life-changing Tarot card readings.

Connie

Connie Chapman is a life coach, teacher, and writer. She’s been featured in leading publications in her native Australia and around the world, and interviewed on top-ranking podcasts.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotGiven this level of success, you might ask, “How could this woman benefit from the Tarot?”

When Connie had her cards read at a friend’s wedding, the reader deduced, based on the cards, that Connie was a teacher and a life coach. Then the reader told Connie she was “too connected to her masculine energy.” She needed to accept her feminine side and change.

Connie realised the reader was correct – so much so that during the reading she began to cry.

Connie had long viewed being a woman as synonymous with weakness. Growing up, she’d watched her mother sit home while her father travelled, had exciting adventures, and earned money. He became her role model and the one she was desperate to please through her career success.

In so doing, she pushed aside qualities that she saw as weak and feminine: emotions, creativity, sensitivity, etc. But as a result of her Tarot reading, she now embraces these aspects of herself.

As Connie puts it, “This was my permission slip to allow my feminine side to be fully expressed. To peel back layers of self-protective armour I had built around my heart.”

Today Connie is no longer held back by childhood programming about what it means to be a woman, and she embraces her feminine self. You can read about Connie’s experiences here.

Prepare for Chinese New Year

New Year’s Day has come and gone – or has it?

The lunar-based Chinese New Year begins on February 5, and it’s another chance to bring yourself good luck throughout 2019.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarot

This will be the Year of the Pig, and the pig is an auspicious sign in the Chinese zodiac – it symbolizes wealth!

Chinese people and others in Asia have many new year’s traditions to ensure good luck. Here are a few of them:

  • Clean the House in Advance. Tidy up early so you won’t have to clean during the first days of the new year: sweeping and washing early in the year could sweep away and wash away your good luck.
    .
  • Visit Your Hairdresser. Chinese people believe in getting a haircut before the new year begins, so why not splurge and get a new style, plus all-over colour, or highlights? Then wait at least a month before getting another trim.
    .
  • Go Shopping! If you’re a lady who loves shoes, these words will be music to your ears: the Chinese believe it’s lucky to buy new footwear before the year begins. Wear those trainers or Louboutins after a bath on Chinese New Year’s Eve.
    .
  • Deck the Halls with Flowers. For extra good fortune in 2019, add one of these lucky plants to your home: a tangerine tree (in Cantonese, the word “tangerine” sounds like the word for “luck”); pussy willows (the silver of the plant attracts money); cherry blossom branches (especially if you’re hoping for love); or daffodils (the golden colour pulls in wealth).
    .
  • Have a Feast. On New Year’s Day, feast upon chicken and fish because, in Cantonese, “chicken” sounds like “luck” and fish sounds like “well off.” Serve them whole, but don’t pick them clean; the leftovers mean you’ll have leftover money at the end of the year.
    .

I wish you all luck and success in the Year of the Pig!

Giving Tarot readings in a police cell!

I spent last Friday night in a police cell! Yes, really!  And it wasn’t just any old police cell; it was one that the infamous villain Reggie Kray had stayed in just ten months before I was born!

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotThe beautiful 5* Courthouse Hotel in Shoreditch was previously the main court for the area that’s now superbly trendy and dynamic, but was once seedy and rundown. The notorious Kray twins were regular “guests” of the police custodian, and their brutal faces are now painted on the beautifully decorated cell walls as testiment to their past.

I had been booked to provide the entertainment for a corporate event that saw a UK-based company bring together its teams from all across the globe.  I had a brilliant evening reading Tarot for people from New Jersey, Canada, Switzerland and Denmark – as well as a good number from England and Wales.

The organisers invited me to help myself from the delicious buffet, and indulge in a couple of glasses of bubbly – I thanked them for the food but declined the fizz – I never drink when I’m being paid to read Tarot!

The evening was wonderful and the feedback I received was lovely. The event planner, Luci, messaged me on Facebook to say:

“Thanks Renée, my clients loved you. I got superb feedback. Such a fun addition to the event and thank you for being so flexible (working an extra hour due to high demand on the night).”

Yes, they enjoyed it so much and the queue was so long, that the client asked me to stay for an extra hour.

This testimonial was followed by another great response from a previous client:

“Renée is fab!! There was a queue of people waiting to chat with her at our #DW10K party. #highlyrecommended”
.
(Thank you both!)
.
If you’re planning an event and thinking about entertainment, Tarot is fun and always draws a curious crowd. I’m available for parties and events in London and Essex, and taking bookings now right up to Christmas 2019!! There’s more info about corporate and party bookings here.
