Playing with Tarot with a focus on travel and vacations.
As some of you know, I am the host of the Meet Up Guelph Tarot and Energy Healing Group and I host Playing with Tarot meetings once a month.
In those meetings Tarot enthusiasts get together to ask questions, offer suggestions and read the cards.
It is a collaborative effort aimed at deepening our knowledge of Tarot while having fun.
In my opinion, new Tarot students often make learning harder than it has to be.
I certainly did. It is not all about memorization, it is also about paying attention and opening to the process.
Over thinking can block the intuitive process. I find thinking aloud helps.
One important step in learning Tarot is in becoming familiar with the cards. Playing with them is a great way to do that.
With that in mind I suggest a simple fun exercise.
I write this as we approach the end of June. Travel and vacations are on the mind of many.
I suggest you pick your deck and flip through the cards. Look for images that make you think of travel or leisure time.
Jot down just a few words for each. Do not over think it. Have fun with it.
Don’t look at my list until you have done your own.
Did you find any similarities?
Do you have very different interpretations than mine?
Did you have eureka ideas for different cards?
Share it with me. I would love to know. Please do not forget to write the name of the deck you are using.
I am using the Universal Tarot deck.
