The Magick of Your Name Tarot Spread

The Magick of Your Name Tarot Spread

Your name is no accident. There is magick in your name that you can harness with this Tarot spread. Start by adding up the letters of your first name: A=1….B=2….C=3….D=4….E=5….F=6….G=7….H=8….I=9 J=1….K=11…. L=3….M=4….N=5….O=6….P=7….Q=8….R=9 S=1….T=2….U=3….V=22….W=5….X=6….Y=7….Z=8 EXAMPLE: Lisa = 3+9+1+1 = 14 = Temperance Reduce any number greater than 22 to a number between 1-22 to correspond to one of the Major Arcana cards. Place the corresponding Major Arcana card at the top of the table. This Major Arcana card corresponds to your life purpose. The next step is to choose a quality that you wish to embody for each of the letters or your name. EXAMPLE: L – love I – inspiration S – self-confidence A – abundance Pull a card for each of these qualities and place them below the Major Arcana card that corresponds to your name. Contemplate how each of the cards mirror or challenge the expression of the qualities you chose to embody. Contemplate how each of these cards relate to the Major Arcana card and your life purpose. Here are the cards I pulled for myself this morning from the Book of Shadows Tarot Vol 1.: LISA = 14 = Temperance / Ostara L – Love: 6 of Fire/Saturn (6 of Wands) I – Inspiration: 1 of Air (Ace of Swords) S – Self-confidence: Wisdom (The High Priestess) A – Abundance: Maiden of Air (Knight of Swords) 6 of Fire and Saturn speak of integrating Masculine/Father energies at the heart level. 1 of Air shows me what I already know – Inspiration is my forte. A steady flow of ideas from an infinite source… and I often wake up knowing what to write about. II Wisdom. My self-confidence is intimately tied to the work I do and my spiritual calling. When I’m on my path, nothing can rock my confidence. Maiden of Air… Too many ideas perhaps. There is a need to focus on that million dollar idea. The work I do is all about Healing and Temperance is the main healing card in the deck. Now you try it! Have fun! Blessed be!...

Dating the King of Wands

Dating the King of Wands

A natural-born leader, this guy is the Master of the Fire Element . If it is one thing he’s not short on it’s confidence.  But where will his confidence take him? Will he be on stage doing stand-up comedy or is he busy organising the next coup d’état? And what about intimacy? How important you are to him may ultimately be determined by how willing you are to share his vision. Is the man you love a King of Wands but abusing the Fire? Check out  8 Types of W*ankers where you’ll find a description of the reversed King of Wands. Pros: If you’re looking for a man to inspire you, this is your guy! He could sell snow to Eskimos. His optimism is extremely contagious. He’s a straight shooter. No second-guessing needed. He’s adventurous and loves to surprise the one he loves. He’s passionate and spontaneous and can make things really sparkle in the bedroom. He’s usually quite lucky. Cons: He can be a bit of a clown and sometimes suffers from foot-in-mouth disease. His spontaneity can go overboard and put himself (his health) and his family at risk (finances). He doesn’t like to feel tied down and is one of the Courtiers most prone to commitment phobia. He can be quite authoritarian and tends to see the world in black and white. Type of date he prefers: Anything spontaneous and active… surprise him! Time from your first date until you introduce him to your parents: Ohhhh… not so sure he wants to meet them at all. If he loves you, he’ll do it for you but only when he’s good and ready. Then again, if you tempt him with borrowing your dad’s yacht for a spontaneous weekend of fun and frolics in the sun… Wedding style: In a far-flung place surrounded by strangers suits him just fine and appeals to his sense of adventure. Type of dad he would make: The goofy side of his personality (it’s quite prominent even when he tries to hide it!) will love playing with the kids. He’ll also be interested in making sure they grow up with the right values and will encourage them to travel at an early age. He’ll want them to grow up to be independent and confident in their abilities. His best match: The Queen of Swords as a) she appreciates his philosophical side  and b) she doesn’t mind getting married far away from her family and friends. His worst match: The Queen of Pentacles who a) usually needs to stay where she has put her roots down and b) values a man who knows how to repair the tractor over a man who travels the world and writes self-help books....

Dating the Queen of Cups

Dating the Queen of Cups

I’m very sensitive in real life. I will start to cry if someone is crying, even if it’s not appropriate. I have that thing in me, a weakness or sensitivity. ~ Jessica Chastain Highly sensitive, receptive, gentle, imaginative and intuitive, this fragile flower of a women epitomises femininity to many men. Because of her extreme receptivity, it becomes easy for others to project onto her their ideals as well as their dislikes. She can find it difficult to assert herself in a direct manner and often resorts to dealing with people passive-aggressively, or by other forms of manipulation.  B*tch Please (reversed Queens) might come in handy if you want to know more about the shadow aspects of this Queen who can be a lot more vicious than she appears. Pros: She lets you speak your mind and you feel truly listened to. She is easy-going and will go along with pretty much whatever you fancy. She cares when you stub your toe. The Queen of Wands might laugh at you but the Queen of Cups will be there to rub some Arnica cream on it and kiss it better. (Or she will if it doesn’t happen in the middle of her favourite soap opera, in which case she’ll be too absorbed to even notice.) You’ll always feel like you’re the man in the house. Her hunches are often spot on, so if you learn to trust them they can help you with anything from advancing your career to seeing the doctor before the cancer spreads. Cons: To get her way without having to speak her mind, she learns to manipulate others emotionally at a young age. Tears are her weapon of choice. It can be tricky to get to know her because of her somewhat nebulous nature. She prefers daydreams and flights of fancy to housework and easily forgets where she puts things. It helps if you have had police search training if you plan on building a home with the Queen of Cups! Type of date she prefers: Honestly, as long as you’re happy she’ll be happy. Just don’t take her to see a horror film if you care about her sleep at all. How to seduce the Queen of Cups: If you truly desire to win this Queen’s heart, then make her feel like the princess she knows she was born to be. Write her a heartfelt poem or compose a song in her honour and she will feel that you see her soul. It’s extremely important to her to feel deeply connected. It’s all about the soul connection. Her best match: The King of Pentacles, because he keeps her grounded. However, the Knight of Cups is the one who will win her heart. She may end up marrying the former and lusting after the latter. Her worst match: The Knight of Wands a) he wants her body and not her soul and b) thinks she’s...
