The tarot scares the hell out of me sometimes. I’m a skeptical witch, and I tell anyone worried about meddling with dark forces that they’re just cards. For me, tarot is a therapeutic tool that cuts through my brain mess. But every once in a while I read for myself and it makes my head swim because it’s showing me exactly what’s going on.
I’ve been dealing with a question for a long time, too long, really. And so I asked the Deva tarot what I need to know that I don’t know. And now I feel like I need to take a nap because the tarot peered into my soul and showed me the highlights.
1 – Ace of Wands – new beginning
2 – 8 of Swords – interference, hostility, escalating anger
3 – 6 of wands – perfect handling of the situation (that was the only surprise)
4&5 – Knight and Princess of Cups – not letting emotions run away with themselves and obscure the situation
6 – The Priestess – the situation is resolvable when you realize that the problems are illusory
7 – 8 of disks – be brave and face the worst
8 – 4 of disks – clouded issues
9 – the 5 of Swords – This card. Has shown up. EVERY. TIME. I. ASK. ABOUT. THIS. SITUATION. This is the card that made me believe in the tarot. It has shown up in 7 consecutive readings about this situation, and does not show up otherwise. I calculated the hypergeometric probability of this happening, and it’s one in 2 million.
10 – 8 of wands – hidden activity, allow things to progress naturally or they will explode
11 – 1 of disks – “Through the unseen there is another world that awaits you. Take the risk. Nothing is ever gained without taking a chance.”
I need some chocolate and a nap. Have you ever done a reading that knocked you right on your ass? I can’t be the only one.
