The Alchemy Of Tarot

The Alchemy Of TarotTarot cards can be a window into your soul and the energy that is present in your mind, heart and over all life at the moment of reading them. Many people come to Tarot because they feel they want to predict the future and therefore have greater personal power. Most of the clients I have read Tarot for have this view that if they could just know what is going to happen, then they could feel better.

Don’t use Tarot to predict the future.

But here is the thing-just because cetain cards have shown up doesn’t mean that certain events are going to transpire. The cards are just a reflection of what is going on for you in the moment. It is the energy of the moment. But it doesn’t mean that it will be the energy of the next moment.By observing the cards that have shown up, you have already changed the energy of the moment into another energy. Now you are more consciously aware of what energy is present within you.

Using Tarot to find out information about another.

One thing that is really important to know is just because you might have enquired about another person in your life within a Tarot reading, it does not mean that what has shown up on the cards actually represents the other person. What it represents is your own perception of the person and how you feel in relationship to them. It doesn’t represent actual reality. The person you are thinking about is in their own complete unique reality that is all about them, and not you.

However, this does not mean that what the cards are ‘telling’ you about the other person is irrelevant. It is important information for you and helps you to get clarity around your own feelings of the relationship, and then decide what it is you actually want in your life rather than focusing on what you don’t want. Most people spend their days thinking about what they don’t want without realising it, and as a result feel fatigue, anger and frustration in their life.

The King Of Cups Reversed.

Lets say you did a reading for yourself and one of the key cards that came up regarding a certain energy going on in your life at the moment was the King Of Cups Reversed.This card can represent a person who is very manipulative or has no control over their emotions and as a result people feel uneasy around them. This can either represent you yourself, or it can represent someone in your life. Be open to the possibiliity that it might represent you, but don’t allow this to be a reason why you feel bad about yourself. It is simply information for you. In your heart you will know if it applies to you or someone else.

What to do next.

Lets look at the following scenario. Lets say that the King of cups reversed represents someone in your ife at the moment. Perhaps it is a man you have a friendship or romantic relationship with. As the card is a King it usually represents male energy. But it does not have to mean a male-it could mean a quality of leadership energy that represents a person who might be in a particular position of power, yet has a destructive influence on you or those around you. Like I said before though, it is your perception of the person, not necessarily what the person actually is.

So, you have decided you are suffering around this person. You feel this person knocks you off balance and sucks your energy out and you are left feeling drained, and the fact that this card has shown up for you is just a confirmation as to how you feel about this person.

Now flip the energy.

Rather than making yourself feel worse about this relationship right now and focussing on what this person is doing ‘wrong’ in your life, start a dialogue with yourself about what kind of relationships you would prefer to have. Don’t focus on what kind of relationship you would ike to specifically have with this person, but just go general on all kinds of people. For example you could dialogue like this:

Declare what you want first.

“I want to feel good in my life. I want to have relationships with people in positions of power that elevate my energy. I want to feel flow within my relationships and a balance of power. I want to feel like my voice and opinions matter around key people in my life and that there is an easy flow of emotional energy between us. I want to feel supported and cared about within my most important relationships.”

How would you feel if you had this right now?

“If this were present in my life right now I would feel really comfortable. I would feel like my heart is open and that I am confortable expressing myself. I would feel a certain flow in my life, and a real heartfelt connection. I would feel like I have more energy and feel an inner balance that supports me doing what it most important in my life.”

Begin to really feel you have this right now.

“I am flowing with people around me. I feel an easy give and take of energy. I feel supported in my opinions. I feel joy within knowing that what I say and feel matters to others. My body and mind are relaxed. I feel content with this easy flow of emotional energy around me. I feel loved.”

Notice how we are not focussing on the actual person you feel is represented by the King of cups reversed. We are first noticing what we don’t want through what has shown up on the card, then we flip our attention to what we do want. Then, we give more attention and feeling to what we want instead, and we grow that energy inside of us for a few minutes.

Why this exercise works.

This exercise shifts your own energy and perceptions about things and you are now more open to solutions around the pain you might be feeling in the moment as represented by the King of Cups reversed. The key moving forward now is to keep more attention on the experience you would rather have in your life than the experience you are actually having in the moment with a certain person. As the teachings of Abraham state:

“In an attraction based Universe, there is no such thing as no. Your attention to it says yes to it. In your physical reality, things do not manifest instantly, for there is a wonderful buffer of time that gives you the opportunity to redirect your attention more toward what you do want to experience”.

Judgment Card In Tarot

judgement card in TarotThe Judgement card in Tarot represents a time where you feel an inner calling activating within you or you literally feel you are being judged. You could be aksed by the universe to judge a situation or person as to whether their actions or way of being will line up with your ideals and assess whether what they bring into your life is life giving or not.

It is not so much about condemning a person and expressing that they are wrong; it is more about your own discernment and whether you have appropriate boundaries in place for your own well being.

When the card relates to an inner calling to act on something you have been thinking about for a while, it can feel like you have come to a choice point in your life and that you now would be best submitting yourself to the higher calling you feel drawn towards and allowing yourself to be vulnerable to following the call of your soul.

5 Practical Things You Can Do To Act On The Energy Of The Judgement Card.

  1. When there is something you have been thinking about for a while but have not acted on, now is the time to take action. Make that phone call you need to make to find out more information about something. Enquire as to what the cost of that course is you have been thinking about doing to change your career direction. Make a solid decision about the relationship you are in as to whether it is to continue or discontinue. Refuse to sit on the fence about all your possibilities in front of you.
  2. Meditate on what it is your soul is calling you to do. The easiest way to hear the whispers of your soul is to quiet your mind and allow for inspiration to flow. This is likely not going to be a once off meditation. To receive our higher knowledge we have to practice getting into the receiving mode to literally rewire our brains to think differently and allow our natural genius to shine through us. If you have been on a certain path that has years of momentum, it is unlikely you will one day wake up and suddenly hear the call of your soul. Although people have claimed this has happened to them, they are the exception, not the rule. By simply taking 15 minutes per day to meditate, you will more clearly here the call of your soul. Perhaps not in the meditation itself, but over time you will have more and more flashes of insight and intuitions as to which direction you would enjoy going. Click here to fast track your meditation learning curve.
  3. Journal, and journal every morning. So often we don’t hear the call of our higher self because we have so much chatter going on in our mind that we get confused as to what is a pure hit from our soul and what is just general mind chatter. When you decide that you are going to journal each morning to get to the heart of what your deepest intuitions are trying to tell you, start your writing off by jotting down anything that comes into your mind. Don’t think, just write. If the first thing that you are thinking is ‘I am so tired’ comes to mind, literally write that down. And keep writing that sentence down until a new thought comes into your head. The goal is to keep writing without stopping and let a stream of consciousness form on your page. Don’t censor your thoughts or even aim to make sense. The goal is to write 3 pages, then stop. You will find the first page and a half to two pages will just be mind chatter that is like a purge. But by the third page, your creative ideas have started to emerge and you are experiencing more clarity. This page is the golden nugget page, but you have to get through the first two pages of chatter in order to get there. Why does this work? Because writing can help take a charge off all of our negative feelings, and once those negative feelings start to lift, this is when you will hear the call of your soul more.
  4. When it comes to being discerning about a person or situation, the practical action is to gather more information. Sometimes we just cannot make a decision about anything until we have more information and it can be the reason why we might be going round and round in our head about something but not getting anywhere. So, talk to some people you think will have some useful information for you. Google it. Go to a library. Seek out a professional. Get a Tarot reading. These suggestions might seem obvious, but at the same time, we can often feel as if we have to know everything ourselves.
  5. Start fresh with something. Clear your angst about a past situation and move onto something new. The Judgement card also refers to feelings of salvation and being reborn again, so it could be a chance for you to forgive yourself or others for past wrong doings you feel have happened, and turn over a new leaf. Allow yourself to be vulnerable in this process and your heart to be open to new possibilities. Shift your energy. Ask for divine healing to enter into your life. Act as you would once the divine healing had occurred.

The Death card in Tarot
Learn How To Read Tarot Cards, Tarot Card Meanings

The Death Card In Tarot

The Death card in TarotThe Death card in Tarot can often bring about a sense of fear in people when it is drawn. Not only does the picture in the card have a skeleton riding a horse, but the horse has a red eye which looks frightening. The Skeleton is holding a black flag which at first seems as if there is a lack of hope around a situation.

However when we look at the picture on the black flag we see a white rose which is symbolic of purity, and in the background we see a rising sun between two pillars which is symbolic of being reborn- a new day or a new era. The two pillars, just like the pillars in The High Priestess are symbolic of a gateway of knowledge. In the case of Death, it is symbolizing the gateway of knowledge to gain immortality. It rarely means an actual physical death of someone, if at all.

Immortality and practical applications in daily life.

What could the feeling of immortality mean for our day to day life? It is the sense that even though we have a physical body, we are so much more than our physical body, and we know this to be true on a deep level and in brief moments in our life we get glimpses of what it is like to live completely without fear. These moments are a moment of purity where we are aligned with our higher selves who knows that life is a never ending cycle made up of endings and beginnings and we need not resist these cycles because it is the natural order of things.

One phase begins and another begins.

The most simple interpretation of the Death card in Tarot is an indication that one period of your life is ending and another is beginning. It is a suggestion that your path of least resistance is to not hold onto things from the past, but embrace the new day or new era and allow it to strip you of all the unnecessary beliefs and assumptions about yourself, others and the world. It is a chance to rethink your approach to situations and be aware of where you are holding resistance to new circumstances that are coming into your life.

What are your rhythms and cycles in daily life?

On a practical day to day level, you could have a look at the rhythms of your life. For example, night turns into day and the day turns into night. Do you have some kind of routine in place which allows you to live as close to your higher self as possible? For example-do you consciously start your day with perhaps some meditation, an early morning walk, some journaling or anything else that gets your mind and body into an optimal state to be receptive to pure emotions of love, joy, abundance and exhilaration?

Or, do you wake up to a screeching alarm and hit the snooze button several times and dread getting out of bed, then get up at the last minute and rush around to get out of the door to get to work?

The first routine or one like that helps you to feel in control of your day and ride the wave of the new beginning of the day or the new cycle. The second routine puts you in a reactive frame of mind from the get go and you are less likely to be able to ‘hear’ the guidance of your higher self throughout your day.

What cycles are you aware of on a daily basis in your own life and how could you maximise them to put yourself in the best state of mind and ride their waves rather than resist them?

Tarot Birth Cards

Tarot Birth CardsIt is said that numbers are the language of the universe, and in Tarot each card is related to a particular number. For example, in the Minor Arcana, each suit is numbered from 1-10 followed by the court cards. The Minor Arcana is connected to more transient themes within a Tarot spread and less about dominant life patterns.

The Major Arcana on the other hand relates to major life themes and is rich in archetypes and symbols and represents certain points within the journey of an individual throughout their life. The Major Arcana contains cards numbered from 0-21. It is for this reason that the Major Arcana is referred to for birth cards because the themes in the Major Arcana are more prominent than the Minor Arcana. The meanings of the Major Arcana cards link into historical roots and significant myths and legends which is what gives the Major Arcana its weight.

Once you have calculated your birth cards, it is worth learning everything about the cards related to you for a better understanding of yourself and the dominant themes that are playing out in your life. This will make manifesting your desires a little easier due to your increased understanding of yourself.

How to calculate your Tarot birth cards.

The basic calculation:

To begin, consider your date of birth-

For example, if you were born on the 18th of February, 1960, the maths would look like this:


Then add 9 + 9 = 18. The number 18 relates to The Moon in the Major Arcana, so in this case this will be the first birth card for this particular birthday.

To calculate the second card, you simply reduce the double digit. So, in this case, 1+8=9.
Number 9 relates to The Hermit in the Major Arcana, so The Moon and The Hermit would be this persons birth cards in terms of the Tarot.

There will be times where the maths will add up to three digits. For example, consider the following birthday: 15th of December 1976. The maths would be:

In this case the first two digits of the three are considered as one number. So it would be 12+2.

To get the first birth card, add 12+2=14 .
Number 14 in the Major Arcana in Tarot is Temperance.Temperance
To get the second birth card number simply reduce number 14 down-eg 1+4=5.
Number 5 in the Major Arcana is The Hierophant. So, Temperance and The Hierophant would be this person’s birth cards in relation to the Tarot.

Single Digit Sums.

Some people’s birthday after calculation will arrive at a single digit as opposed to a double digit.
Take for example 90= 9+0=9 (number 9 relates to The Hermit). In this case you would look for the pair in the Major Arcana.

For example, consider what makes up the number 9 within numbers between 1-21 (all the numbers of the Major Arcana). In the case of number 9, it would be 1+8=9. So card 18 in the Major Arcana would be the pair of 9. So this persons birth cards would be The Hermit+ The Moon.

Three Birth Cards.

There is another exception to calculating your birth card number. If your birthdate sum equals 19 (1+9=10), this number will actually reduce down into three digits which will mean you actually have three birth cards:

1+9=10 and 1+0=1, so this will mean your three birth cards will be The Sun (card 19), The Wheel Of Fortune (card 10) and The Magician (card 1).Three Birth Cards

Studying your story and using it for manifestation.

Once your know your Tarot birth cards, read up on the meanings, stories, myths and legends associated with your birth cards. Doing so will give you a glimpse into your life purpose as well as how you can draw on these stories for manifesting the things you want in life.

Your birth cards help you to understand your strengths and your weaknesses. Once you are familiar with these aspects of yourself in relation to the Tarot, you can look at your goals and work out which positive aspects of your birth cards will help you along your way.
