30 Day Tarot Challenge
|Beginner’s Tarot Mind!|
I found this over on Tumblr at the end of last week and thought that it might be fun to do. However, I won’t be making blog posts about myself on a daily basis, but will take 30 days in total to do the challenge.
The challenge originated here:
So the first question is:
Q1: What got you introduced/involved in Tarot
Like lots of people, I had a dabble with the tarot when I was much younger. I bought a Marseille Tarot deck from a lovely bookshop in Glasgow (John Smith & Sons) which sadly went defunct with the arrival of Borders and Waterstones in the city.
I couldn’t read them without referring to the LWB! It was a lot of fun, but I didn’t really gel with the images on the cards – but there was simply no choice around at the time.
Everything was going swimmingly with my readings until I did one that indicated The Empress (ie my mother) was going to be the Incoming Influences and in the likely outcome Temperance Rx indicated that I might be unwell. Well, who wants to be ill? I put the cards away and forgot about it.
Within weeks, my appendix burst spectacularly and I was rushed into hospital. On discharge from hospital, I was looked after by my mother.
I was ill for 10 weeks after the operation – a swab had been left inside me. I thought I’d never feel well again.
So the cards were put away in a bag in a drawer and never looked at again until….
I watched a TV programme with Jane Ross and Michelle Knight. Michelle was teaching Jane to read Tarot cards and I just fell in love.
Tefcat on the Children of Artemis website recommended that I join TABI to learn how to read properly.
And TABI went on to form a core part of my Tarot development 🙂
Now – YOU have a go!
