How to Read Tarot for Others (part 4)

Because my client’s ego had been holding on to things as they were, desperately working long hours at a job she hated so she could afford her apartment, the break with the old had to be sudden and shocking. Breaking her arm should have shown her that she had to stop what she was doing, but this was apparently not enough to shake her ego from its hold, so she had to lose her expensive apartment. Finally her car had to break down before she could finally surrender and go a different way.

At the time, The Tarot of Creativity deck had not been created, but The Tower’s equivalent card in this deck is very illuminating, it is entitled “The Awakening.” According to the TOC card title, my client’s three-fold disaster was just the prelude to an awakening of her soul; and this turned out to be true: she was on the very cusp of a huge life change; one that was not to her ego’s liking.

How to Read Tarot for Others (part 3)

It is extremely important to give your clients only the highest possible reading you can from the cards; although a reading can foretell and forewarn, a good tarot reader will inform the Querent of how to best approach the upcoming event and get the most out of it, even if it seems to foretell of a disaster.

One time, The Tower card appeared in a RWS reading I gave for a client who had just broken her arm and lost her apartment the previous week. The client knew enough of the Tarot to know that The Tower can foretell of an upcoming disaster, so she gasped when the card appeared. When I saw the card, I heard the phrases: “the other shoe drops” and “trouble comes in threes” so I told her to be cautious and attentive for the third thing that might be coming. A few days later, her car broke down. Fortunately, the reading allowed her to be prepared, so she took this final event in stride.

How to Read Tarot for Others (part 2)

A tarot reader is like a psychologist or a therapist; the client coming to a reader expects to get good advice, and trusts the Reader. Even if you read tarot as a parlor game, you can really hurt other people if you don’t take what you are doing seriously. Then there is the energy of the Tarot itself: like anything that has had that much emotional and mental energy directed at it, it has acquired an innate power of its own over the years. It doesn’t matter if you have a new deck straight out of the box or you are reading from your grandmother’s deck, the Tarot is a tool that can influence people, and as such should be treated with respect.

How to Read Tarot for Others (part 1)

Reading tarot is a great responsibility. You have to come from a high level of awareness in order to understand what you are seeing, and communicate it to another in a way that is empowering. The Tarot of Creativity, has this higher awareness built into it. It took me a full year to discern the highest possible meaning for each card, and I have since made several corrections to the deck, so you could say that my deck took about two years to make. I wanted it to be very empowering.

How to Learn to Read Tarot ~ Part 7

If the sum [of the numerical value of all the cards] equals twenty-two or lower, I use the corresponding card and its sum for enhanced reading. For instance, let’s say that your sum of a Celtic card spread is 108; you add these numbers together to get 18 — in numerology, you always drop the Zero because it has no value — which, in the numerology of the Tarot is The Moon/DREAMING. The 18 is related to the 9 in the Tarot since you can sum the 1 plus the 8 to get 9, The Hermit/EMERGENCE. If the sum of the reading equals the numerical value of one or more of the cards on the table at any point in the reduction process, I look at that card as being more important than the other cards in the reading.

2 + 13 + 7 = 22

Adding the numbers together returns the sum of twenty-two for the reading, which is a Master number, as well as being the “secret” number of The Fool. In general, if you arrive at a Master number you stop. A Master number is a double number — they are all multiples of 11, starting with 11: 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, 99. If the sum of the reading is more than 22, I sum it again to further reduce it.

The sum reading tells me that in order to be RECEPTIVE to the dictates of Spirit, and use my mental abilities to REMEMBER what I already KNOW (Memory), I should allow myself to be fresh to the world (The Fool) and use my INSIGHT (my power of reasoning) as a guide.

One thing that I like to do is sum up the reading in order to get what I call the “meta-meaning.” The Tarot of Creativity especially lends itself to this practice, as all the cards use Arabic instead of Roman numbers; even the Court cards are assigned numbers. So the above reading would sum up like this:

2 + 13 + 7 = 22

…However, I sometimes prefer to read the three cards as a sentence. The Tarot of Creativity lends itself to reading this way. Here is a recent reading I gave myself. First, the RWS deck:

The High Priestess is a Major Arcana card that indicates deep inner knowledge. The Queen of Swords/AIR means mental mastery and clear discernment. The Seven of Pentacles is a seven, which means that the work indicated by Pentacles is spiritual in nature.

I often do a Celtic Cross layout for a long reading, but my favorite short reading is a three-card reading. This simple reading can give you oodles of relevant information.

Invite the Querent to shuffle, then cut the deck into three pieces, and choose a stack with their non-dominant hand. Then deal out the top three cards in a row. This row can be read in several ways. The most popular way is to read the cards in sequence with the first card as the past, the middle card as the present, and the last card as the future.

Left Card = PAST Middle Card = PRESENT Right Card = FUTURE

How to Learn to Read Tarot ~ Part 1

I recommend that you start reading Tarot with only a few cards at first. A one-card reading is a great way to start out, because it allows you to really focus on one card at a time, and this makes it easier to learn the Tarot.

Pick a card, any Card
In any reading, your real questions and desires are often buried under superficial concerns. Be careful not to try to mold your reading to those superficial ideas, but allow it to reveal the desires and intentions of your innermost soul.

To develop your intuition, it is better to not ask the Tarot questions when you first learn to read; it is much better to open yourself up to whatever comes through. The best way to do this is to empty your mind of all concerns and questions before you lay out the cards. Allow them to speak to you without you trying to assign a meaning or category to them beforehand. By not asking a question, you allow the Higher Self to communicate more clearly with you. When you see the reading, you will naturally know what it is about, because you will see the cards’ concerns.

Meditation
Next you read the section called “Meditation” to see what insight it can offer for the Five of Earth:

RWS
Do you believe that you deserve health and wealth?

TOC
Surrender/Breakthrough: if you can’t surrender you will break, instead of break through.

Ask yourself if either of these questions or statements seem to apply.

The Five in the Major Arcana
Finally you can look at the Major Arcana card for information on the Five in the Major Arcana. The Hierophant/INTUITION card heads up the energy of the Fives. The Hierophant hears the voice of the Higher Self, through his intuition. But first, you must surrender the ego, because the voice of your intuition cannot speak while you are mired in mental confusion or fear.

The herculean task of surrendering at the moment of fear and imminent change takes a lot of courage, but the surrender must presage the breakthrough. In other words, the challenge of the Fives presents you with the price of freedom: courage, which paradoxically can only come when you surrender your ego to the guidance of your Higher Self, and surrender your need to have freedom be what your mind thinks it is.

The two cards both express the meaning of the number Five in the suit: change, chaos, freedom. The Five in the Pentacle/Earth suit is the end of the Five energy — it has worked through the entire process of manifestation that started with the Five of Wands/FIRE, and now you are seeing the energy of the Five as a manifested event or thing.

You may realize that you can forestall many “negative” occurrences once you learn the path of creative manifestation shown by the suits in the Tarot of Creativity. It is much easier to create from the pure energy of the Fire (Wands) stage than at the solid, hard to change Earth (Pentacles) stage. In the case of the hypothetical reading above, if you had paid attention when this Five energy began in your life as the energy of FIRE/Wands, you may have been able to avoid the results of the energy of change, or more effectively deal with it.

The TOC card gives you practical advice that you can use, while the RWS card seems to tell you that you are once again thinking with poverty consciousness. Which card presents you with information that you can use in a positive manner? Reading from two decks gives you valuable insight on the cards. As you keep on reading, you will find that you are slowly adding to an internal lexicon of meanings, imagery, and readings.

Rider Waite Smith
Now you look at the Rider Waite Smith card meaning. You may find this dismaying: the Five of Pentacles is one of the most potentially negative cards in the deck, meaning financial loss/poverty consciousness/health issues, etc.

Tarot of Creativity
The equivalent card in the Tarot of Creativity seems to present us with a much more digestible chunk of information: it means “Surrender/Breakthrough.” The two words can be taken together, as in “you have to first surrender to what is, before you can have a breakthrough.” Or you can look at the energy of the cards in the upright word as the beginning of the energy of the Five of Earth, while the reversed word represents the ending energy of the Five in the Suit of Earth.

So, if you received the card in the reversed position, you know that a breakthrough is imminent once you have surrendered. If you received the card in the upright position, you can take the card’s advice, and surrender to “what is” rather than resisting a change that is most likely in your highest good, no matter how it looks now.

Having the information for both the RWS (Rider Waite Smith) deck and the TOC (Tarot of Creativity) on the same page in this book can add depth to your readings. [Editor’s note: The Tarot Key gives meanings for both decks.]

For instance, lets say you have pulled the Five of Pentacles using the RWS deck.


You go to the page for the Fives and you see that the number Five has to primarily do with change and freedom. You know that the Five is the middle of the journey, and it is a kind of portal or gate to the higher energies of the upper numbers of the scale. This gate is guarded by issues that come up in your life, represented by the troublesome Fives. If you pass the challenge of the energy of the Fives — change, freedom with responsibility — then you can go on to the upper numbers. If you cannot meet the challenge of the Five with equanimity, creativity, and poise, then you will have to go back and repeat the lessons of the lower grades, numbers 1-5.

Using my numerological technique for learning the Tarot, you only have to memorize the meanings for the base numbers, plus the two Master numbers in the deck. Numerology is built upon nine base numbers, plus the Master numbers, which are double number that are all multiples of eleven: 11-99. The Tarot’s fifth suit, the Major Arcana, only goes to number 21, but the hidden value for The Fool is the second Master number, 22. If I were starting to learn the Tarot again, I would first memorize the meanings of numbers 0-10 plus the meaning of the Master numbers 11 and 22. The reason that I include number 10 is explained more fully in the section about numerology.

When you memorize the numbers instead of the specific cards, you start to see how the number works through the energy of the suits, and your intuition is given a much broader field in which to play. This book supplies a handy section on numerology at the back of the book, making it easy to study and memorize the meanings of the numbers.

Quick Trick for Reading any Card
To understand the cards at a glance, you can see the number of the card as a verb and the suit as the modifying adverb. When you put them together, you have the beginning of a sentence, which can convey a meaning. Thus, you only have to learn the meaning of each suit and of each number to be able to determine what a card means when you get it in a reading. This provides a baseline for the development of your personal lexicon.

Think of the number of the card as the main meaning of the card modified by the suit it is in.

Each suit brings a subtle energy to modify the energy of the number. The suits trace a four step path of manifestation, headed by a Major Arcana card that expresses a more universal principle or natural law. Thus the number Three, which is the number of the Divine Child, and is basically about childlikeness and creativity, translates as different variants of this base energy in the suits. The Three emerges into its archetypical expression as “imagination,” represented by The Empress, Key #3, in the Major Arcana.

Shuffling
Randomizing the cards can be done in various ways. Standard card shuffling techniques apply. If you do a lot of readings in succession, it may be best to shuffle once and then spread out the deck in a pile and allow the Querent to choose the cards. Alternately you can make a pile of the cards and “mess” them up. The pile of cards can then be easily randomized again for the next client.

Practice Makes Perfect
The hardest reading to do is one that you do for yourself, but this is the best way to practice, since you are always available, and you can verify your results. Keep a log of your readings, and compare your tarot log with your journal to see if your readings are accurate.

I used to do a six-month reading every month, and found that the “predictions,” although amazingly accurate, were not necessarily delivered on the time schedule of the reading. In other words, if I saw something was to happen in the month of April when I made the reading in December, it might be delayed or happen earlier by a month or more.

The further out the reading, the less accurate the read. This is because psychic awareness taps into potential timelines. A good psychic will read the circumstances with the strongest potential.

How to Read Tarot ~ Part 1

Preparing to Read
To read any spread, you must first clear yourself as much as possible of personal agendas, obstructing beliefs, and emotional debris; you must be as blank as possible in order for the cards to work. I like to say that the Higher Self, with whom you are communicating through the medium of the cards, cannot penetrate a wall of personal beliefs or a smoke screen of negative emotions. You must become, as much as possible, a blank slate.

The images on the cards are repositories for a great quantity of information. As you work with the cards, you will add more and more information to each card as it accrues meaning for you. Cards will change in meaning according to the reading variables; circumstances such as the meaning of the whole reading, the question asked by the Querent, the position of a card in a reading, and the influence of nearby cards.

The Tarot is a tool for your Higher Self; it communicates with you via the symbolic language of the images. I once had a reading where the Seven of Swords appeared; in this card the traditional interpretation of this card is that the figure is sneaky and duplicitous, taking away the swords from an encampment: the accepted idea is that the 7 of Sword is a thief. Suddenly I saw that the card was telling me that the person who was the subject of my reading was “disarming” or charming. In another reading I read this card as meaning that diplomacy was needed on my part to disarm a potentially contentious situation.

What do the Lower Cards in the Tarot Mean?

The pips are the cards numbered from ACE (1)-10. They show current energies that may be hidden from view or that the Querent may not see or want to see.

At the highest level, when correlated with their Arcana numerological equivalent, they show how to apply the higher principles and realizations in the Arcana cards to the issues encountered in daily life. For instance, the sixes in all the suits are correlated with the Lovers/LOVE card in the Major Arcana; all Sixes are then about the principle of LOVE as expressed through the energy of the suit.

What do the Court Cards Mean in the Tarot?

The court cards trump the lower cards in the suits. The royal figures pictured on the court cards are analogous to those of a modern playing card deck, but the Tarot adds one more card: the Page.

The court cards represent creative mastery in each suit. In a departure from traditional tarot decks, the royal cards in the TOC are assigned a number, which aids in interpreting the card’s numerological meaning.

11 – PAGE ~ a message or messenger coming through the energy of the suit

12 – KNIGHT ~ the active agent of the energy of the suit

13 – QUEEN ~ mastery for the suit expressed as a “female” energy

14 – KING ~ mastery for the suit expressed as a “male” energy

What do the Aces Represent in the Tarot

The aces represent the distilled energy—the seed energy or essence of each suit. As such, they could be said to be both higher and lower than the court cards, just as in a regular playing deck.

Aces are related to their numerical equivalent in the Major Arcana: Key #1, The Magician/ATTENTION, who presents the tools of earthly existence to the newly incarnated Fool. The Ace has no direction of its own; they are filled with raw potential. They are the energy of the suit, ready to be directed by consciousness.

The Aces represent raw or initial passion, feelings, thoughts and needs that can be directed into something more. They represent hope, a possibility, an action to take, a future that you can create. The aces demonstrate the promise of the power represented by their respective suit: each suit opens up a path that when used together allow us to create on the material plane.
