Hi All You Tarot Enthusiasts,
I told you I would post something interesting today and here it is. I have created a Special Reading that you can all attempt. It is called the:
Life Review Tarot Reading – Chart Your Progress through Life (Just Click on The Link) You will also find it in the Court Card Section Menu after Lesson 4
This is not a quickie reading and you will certainly need to spend much time going through it. The aim of the reading is to help you to take stock of your life by looking back to the early days of it. The Reading covers various stages of your life and asks questions of you that you should be very honest about when answering.
The person you are today is probably very different to the person or child you started off from. However, some of you may feel that you have changed little over the years although, life has a habit of altering us hether we like it or not. Very few of us sail through life untouched by events, traumas or disasters. Our reactions, perceptions and direct experience can change us greatly. On the other hand our experience of life may be one of joy and care free times. Regardless, we are all affected one way or another.
Some of us may have had a happy childhood and then a wild adolescence before settling down, marrying and starting families. Some may have had a bad start in life and its being all downhill since. Others have overcome all sorts of personal trauma, damage and challenging circumstances in order to find maturity and stability.
The road from childhood to mature adulthood is a difficult one and we may only take the time to look back on it when we realise that it is coming to an end or when circumstances force us to. When we do look back can we honestly say, with hand on heart, that our life has turned out exactly as planned? Has our life being positive and fulfilling or do we feel bitter and resentful.
By charting the progression of our life through the Tarot Cards we can use their rich stories and complex characters to tell our Own Story. When we have it laid out like a map in front of us, it is much easier to see how we fared and why. We can see our successes and our failures, our strengths and weaknesses. We can see the cause and effect of situations and how our attitudes, behaviour and feelings coloured and influenced our life. We can identify those personalities who helped and hindered our progress. We can pinpoint our own responsibility instead of laying blame on another.
With this Life Review Reading we get to look back and ask questions of ourself. We may learn some interesting and astonishing facts about ourself. Depending on the cards we select we may feel very proud or terribly disillusioned.
How you use and interpret this reading is very important for it holds vital information of how you came to be, for better or worse, the person you are now.
The Life Review Reading will also help develop your story-telling skills and it is a brilliant way to start really making connections between the cards and for identifying Card Combinations. We will be covering Card Combinations later in the Course but by then it will come automatically to you. By the time you have concluded your reading you will have a Beginning, a Middle, an End or Present along with Characters and Personalities. That is how you do a Tarot Reading for another
So, off you go and get started.
Best of Luck,
Vivien (Your Tarot Teacher) x
