Truly Teach Me Tarot Course

Truly Teach Me Tarot Course is a Work in Progress and it’s FREE! The course, originally taught in informal group settings was uploaded, in its very basic state, to WordPress in 2012. On a mission to re-write the entire course and all 78 Cards, both Upright and Reversed, I have been methodically and consistently working my way to that end. To date the site has grown beyond anything I had ever envisaged and is continuing to expand.

Truly Teach Me Tarot for all its grand size, is not yet a complete body of work. There is still a lot of ground to cover and I anticipate a couple more years of writing ahead for me. I am also re-visiting some earlier work with a view to bringing it into line with later and more current efforts. Therefore you will find areas that have been covered in-depth, while other areas are quite basic, incomplete, or unformed. I am the sole author and creator of all written course content which means the site can only develop at a certain pace.

Should We Pay More Attention to Hidden Reversed Cards?

5 of Cups Reversed

Audio Version Available Below

Now there may be many Readers out there who regularly practice what I am about to describe but this only began to register with me in recent weeks. What I am talking about here pertains to the Reversed Cards which remain sitting in the deck after the drawing or selection process has been completed. What is their purpose or use if at all? Why were they Reversed in the first place? What can we deduce from them? Should we just totally ignore them, or treat them like the remaining Upright Cards, as in, just not part of that Reading? Of course this only applies if you are using Reversed Cards in your Readings. Read the rest of this entry

Noisy Audio Ads – Technical Hitch!

Hi,

Technical Hitch

I just logged on to my site today to do some writing but as soon as the page loaded, loud audio seemed to come from nowhere. I have been on to WordPress and they are onto it as I type. Responded to my call for help within seconds! Am impressed!

There may be some disturbance to your viewing and reading while this is being sorted and I apologise for any inconvenience caused. Will let you all know when issue has been resolved.

Blessings,

Reversed Knight of Pentacles Under the Microscope!

The Reversed Knight Of Pentacles

Knight of Pentacles Reversed

A Big Hello to All My Tarot Friends Around The World, 

Well here it is at last, The Re-Worked Reversed Knight of Pentacles has finally arrived and is ready for viewing. Like The Reversed Knight of Pentacles himself, the going has been very slow and I apologise for all the delay in getting this latest piece of work out to the world at large. I have been battling Cervical Spine issues and running from one therapist to another with limited success. However, I have now found an excellent Muscular-Skeletal Specialist who is doing great work on me. It is early days yet but I hope to be back up to speed in the coming weeks. A lot of it has been my own doing so I have a big part to play in the healing process. I have learned a lot about the workings of my body in recent weeks and am now in ‘Save Vivien’ mode!

I really went into great depth with this Reversed Knight. There is a lot to read so don’t try to take it all in one go. To be honest, I could have written more but had to rein myself in eventually. Please be reassured there is absolutely no need to learn off all the associations I have provided. Your head will explode if you do! It is simply food for thought and should help in developing your understanding of  the personality potential to be found in The Reversed Aspect of The Knight of Pentacles. Every Tarot Reader must follow his or her own path.

I will be leaving the Court Cards for a while as I need to come up for air. I now intend focusing my attention on The Ace of Cups along with The Emperor and Hierophant.

Enjoy!

Blessings Be,

Vivien (Your Tarot Teacher)

The Reversed Knight of Pentacles

Heavy Earth/Scorched Earth

     Knight of Pentacles Reversed Knight of Pentacles Reversed        Knight of Wands Reversed Knight of Pentacles Reversed

When the Knight of Pentacles Reverses we find a very different young man or woman. The Knight becomes overly bogged down in the Earth or loses his values and morals in a furnace of Fire. He can stubbornly resist the benefits and perks Fire has to offer him, resulting in apathy, stagnation and lack of motivation. He can lose the energy required to even rise from his bed or chair. He can grow sullen, dour and disinterested in life and the living. Mind numbing habit and routine find him drifting meaninglessly throughout the years as opportunities and the chance for adventure and fun are actively ignored or avoided. Without Fire,…………….Read the Full Description

Hi Everyone, 

New Content Release! – Upright Meanings for Knight of Pentacles

The Reworked Knight of Pentacles – Upright Meanings

Just a very quick note to announce the release today of the re-worked Upright Meanings, Keywords and Messages for The Knight of Pentacles. This content includes heaps of new information and detailed analysis for potential interpretations in all types of Reading scenarios; General, Personality, Relationships, Business and Careers.

I am currently working on The Reversed Meanings for The Knight, and whereas I had hoped to have it complete for launch by June 30th, it will most likely be a week behind schedule at this stage!!! I promise, it is coming though. Just not enough hours in the day at present.

I do hope you enjoy the new content. There is a lot so it might take you time to get through it all. Please note, that as either a Student or Tarot Reader, you are not required to memorise all of these interpretations. I simply provide them as food for thought and possible use. Work with only those which resonate with you. It is not possible to assign each of these interpretations to every reading you do. However, they do offer a variety of perspectives to work from.

Blessings,

Vivien (your Tarot Teacher)

Back From Vacation in France!

Greetings to All my Tarot Friends around the World,

8 of Pentacles UprightAce of Swords Rx Page of Swords UprightThe Hanged Man Upright7 of Pentacles Upright

I have just returned from vacation in France, and whereas I had intended on taking my laptop with me to continue work under the Mediterranean sun, I realised at the last-minute I couldn’t fit it into my carry on luggage as its dimensions were too large. My old laptop used to fit fine. This left me in a bit of a panic, but to be honest, it was the best thing all round as it meant I took a complete break from being hunched over a computer for hours on end every day. It was supposed to be a vacation after all and most sane people actually use that time to switch off and relax. With no time to find an alternative bag I had to leave my laptop behind and head for the airport.  I experienced a certain degree of anxiety over this as I felt two weeks was a long time to be absent from my writing. However, my hands were tied and there was nothing for it but to step back and accept that work would have to wait.

The Re-Invented Ace of Wands Has Arrived!

Hi To Everyone in Tarot World, 

I am thrilled to announce the arrival of the Re-Invented Ace of Wands. I believe the Launch Card for each Suit should be given special attention as it sets the scene for their very particular, and specific journeys ahead. The Four Aces lay the necessary ground work for all the Cards that follow. Once you understand the Launch or Origins of each Suit, it makes interpreting the rest all the easier to intuit, or deduce.

I do hope you enjoy this new body of work and assure you of my commitment to affording the same level of attention to the remaining Aces of Cups, Swords and Pentacles. 

Enjoy!

Getting The Green Light/Thumbs Up, Get Going

Ace of Wands *Remember, Wands are governed by the Element Fire and so deal with energy, action, movement, change, work, careers, creativity, inspiration, enthusiasm, exertion, strength, passion.

Ace of Wands

A Disembodied Hand appears from out of a cloud or aura. A single Wand is grasped firmly by the hand in an upright position and is offered forth as a gift of opportunity or chance. The aura represents the pure aspect of Spirit. The Wand  sprouts new leaves symbolically representing the beginning of new life and potential within.  Any remaining old leaves fall away to make way for new growth as nature rebirths itself. The budding leaves also represent Spring, a time of new growth, rebirth, regeneration and possibilities.  The Thumb is held in an upright manner, a symbolic gesture for ‘Yes’ or ‘Affirmative’. The sky is clear and bright. Young trees come into leaf in the background while a castle sits atop of a steep hill or mountain. The castle symbolises security, goals, dreams, opportunities, ambitions, the ultimate destination. A river meanders through the landscape symbolising the emotional currents that flow through the situation. The River does not follow a straight path. This symbolises challenges ahead, but non so great that cannot be overcome.

Card Imagery and Description for The Ace of Wands – The Journey Begins

In the Ace of Wands the Element of Fire prepares to embark upon a new journey. Everything is new and fresh and much excitement is in the air for this momentous occasion. Only moments ago, a bolt of lightning lit up the sky and set our nerve ends tingling as the hair rose on the back of our neck. The electricity is palpable. and it is clear something very magical is about to happen.  As we focus on The Ace of Wands we witness the first impulse or emanation of the gift of Fire as a hand from the Universe/Spirit reaches forth from a burst of cloud.   The aura surrounding……Continue Reading

What is Holistic Tarot Reading and Consultancy?

chakras and tarot cards

Holistic Tarot Reading and Consultancy?

Holistic Tarot Consultancy differs from traditional Tarot Reading. Tarot Reading in the past was, and is still used by many as a ‘Fortune-Telling’ method of divination. Typically the client sat quietly throughout a brief reading while the Tarot Reader relayed an interpretation of each card drawn. It was a one way flow of communication with The Tarot Reader in full control while the client sat silently taking note of all the bits and pieces. I have been to plenty of these myself over the years. A Reading was often a series of non-related pieces of information with some parts making sense while others remained mysterious or out-of-place. People often sought Tarot Readings to find out if the Reader could see what they already knew about themselves.

Tarot Reading has thankfully evolved and today we find a rich variety of interpretation styles to suit every need.

Holistic Tarot Consultancy goes much deeper than the old-fashioned method by diving into the realm of the human psyche and all that resides therein. It draws a new style of clientele; those who seek personal empowerment and the freedom to control and manage their own life. They see Tarot as a form of Personal Life Coaching which will equip them with the necessary skills and attitude to achieve their goals and dreams. Read the rest of this entry

After reading the above interpretation of Cora’s Celtic Cross Career Spread you may be somewhat confused as to how and where I got my story. Pulling the cards together in a manner which makes sense very much comes down to a combination of old-fashioned deduction, investigative work and that buzz word, intuition. It goes without saying that unless you read from a completely intuitive base, you should have some understanding of the Meanings of the Cards, their Numerical Status and Elemental Influence. These are the tools of the trade after all……..(Read the Full Guide that will show you How I interpreted this Reading)
