On the Topic of Tarot: Let your reading breathe
A note of advice from your trusted Tarot friend; the messages from your reading might become clearer later, as times passes.
An example. A Tarot reading querent of mine reached out recently. I performed their reading about a month and a half ago. It was a great experience and they connected to the messages that the cards had to offer. However, they received some rather large messaging about a path they might want to consider. At the time, it felt relevant to them, but the theme seemed just out of reach, mentally. Fast forward, they reached out in a moment of reflection to say that the reading was “more prophetic” than they had initially thought. The theme, the large message, was playing out and they could put their hands around it. Y’all. In simple terms, Tarot be like that sometimes. (PS…I LOOOOVE that they reached out to tell me that. Eeeeeee! 💛)
This is why I say, let your Tarot reading breathe. Messages can continue to unfold and resonate more deeply. Don’t get me wrong. Frequently and most often, there are immediate connections to the messaging. However, sometimes readings have moments of “Hmmmm. I’m not sure what that means.” Or, “But, how?” And those moments, my friend, are an extra layer of awesome mysticism. (don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t….) They’re yummy. 😋 (😂)
I have started discussing this topic with my querents to set expectations. I advise them that, “With some readings it can take time for the words of the reading to unfold. If you don't find an immediate connection to some of the messaging, it might be that the message is a step ahead of you in your journey.” Tarot provides great insights allowing us to understand the past, clarify our present, and prepare for our future. Those insights don’t always connect in the moment. It can take time for them to be fully realized. Why?
Well, it might be at the time of the reading, you didn’t feel ready for the message. Either out of denial or because you hadn’t finished processing life circumstances yet. Or, perhaps the messages of the reading were to be integrated into your journey at that exact moment, a stepping stone to eventual understanding. Maybe the messages served to be a placeholder to create familiarity, preparing or priming you for what’s ahead. Or, if we want to get mystical ✨, perhaps divination was at hand, giving you a heads up.
Either way, in any case, I believe the messages of Tarot to be intentional. They are meant to be considered, to be heard, to allow for perspective shifts. They are a reflection of your subconscious, your intuition, your Higher self, bringing forth pieces you are denying, blocking, or haven’t given the space to be heard. They are a reflection of your energy and your path. (Ugh, pardon me…please give me a moment…cuz, that’s beautiful. So damn beautiful. I love this stuff. 🥰 ) Okay, I’m back. Aaaand, I’m wrapping up.
I quite enjoy bringing Tarot into everyday situations and guiding people through their spaces. I feel blessed to have the capacity to deliver these messages. And, I really appreciate hearing from my querent’s and getting to see how their journey is unfolding. If you have questions about any of this, please ask. I’d love to hear from you. (If you’re counting, that’s the third time I’ve said “love” in some form…now fourth…) Xo.
