  1. Hi. Love this website. It’s helping me in my Tarot studies, so I wanted to thank you and I appreciate your Tarot knowledge very insightful.

    Couple of things though lol. Are you able to put keywords for the Major Arcana? I do see keywords for the High Priestess but not for the others. Plethora of reading that’s all.

    And my last thought. The 5 of pentacles health side you listed Aids. Shouldn’t that include HIV? Or do you have the HIV as a keyword on an another card? Because you can now live with HIV with proper medication. Aids is the last and final stage of the virus. So my suggestion is to add on HIV/AIDS. And not just the AIDS because they go together.

    Become someone could have the virus only (HIV) and not in the final stage (AIDS). Can get scary just seeing one without the other. I hope you’re understanding my point.

    Teach me Tarot is Great, awesome,phenomenal work and very knowledgeable. It’s really helping me out a lot. Kudos to you! Hope you will consider my suggestions. Thank you! Have a blissful one!


    • Hi Cherretta,

      Thank you for your comments and apologies for the late response. I have been doing a lot of writing so correspondence had to take a back seat for a while. You are right about HIV and I will make a note to amend those details. I haven’t touched that section of the site in a long time. With regards to the keywords for Major, the course is a work in progress and not all cards have been completed. It originally started with me uploading a course I used to teach in class format back in 2012. Since then I have been re-writing the whole course and there is still a couple of years of work left to do. The first 3/4 Major cards have been attended to, but the remaining ones still need to be re-worked. The same with the Queens and Kings. I am still returning to cards I worked on a couple of years ago, as my style of writing has changed and they need to be updated. It is an endless circle and the site has got quite large. My aim in life before I die, is to see this work completed. There’s just me doing all the writing, site management and administration so it can bet quite overwhelming at time. I do hope you will keep with me and enjoy the site as it grows. If only I had a few more pairs of hands I could set to type at other keyboards it would be great. I always over-estimate the amount of time writing takes and some cards just draw me in and I get lost in them for weeks. The stories are bursting out of me, so I promise to get to them all in time.




      • Hi Cherretta,

        I have just added HIV to the Five of Pentacles as you suggested. Regarding any of the Health interpretations suggested, I would exercise extreme caution in offering them as a diagnosis, or even suggestion of diagnosis unless you are suitably qualified. I myself, do not tread into Health Reading for clients as tarot cards should not be relied upon as accurate in this manner, or at any other time. They are useful for generic health interpretation as in someone being stressed, or bad lifestyle diet etc. These are areas we can all recognise and acknowledge without having a qualification as such. Throughout my studies, I have seen the Five of Pentacles associated with HIV/AIDS especially when it is found with The Devil. However, this could also suggest addiction and abuse so it is still quite ambiguous. I have supplied potential health interpretations for general interest but would be very wary about using them for clients. I also need to revisit this section of site as it is not yet complete.
