“What was the lesson?” Break-Up Tarot Spread

No lengthy introduction is needed for this spread. We’ve all been there… We thought he was the One and it turned out to be just another lesson. Sometimes it’s worth not looking over your shoulder but certain relationships leave you thinking there’s a lesson you were meant to get. If that’s how you feel then that’s your truth and you need to honour it… Tarot to the rescue! 1. Theme – The overall spiritual/higher reason for why you got together in this incarnation. A Major here can indicate a soul mate connection, as well as lessons carried forward from past lives. Example: The Sun – The higher reason is self-expression, courage and playfulness 2. What he brought – Individual theme for him (or her if you are in a female same-sex relationship.) This is what he brought to the table in order to create the dynamic underpinning the main theme. Example: 9 of Disks – He brought issues surrounding money and independence 3. What she brought – Individual theme for her (or him if you are in a male same-sex relationship.) This is what she brought to the table in order to create the dynamic underpinning the main theme. Example: The Empress – She brought  issues surrounding nurturing, sexuality and creativity 4. His lesson – What he was meant to learn. Example: The Moon – For those money-related issues and concerns about independence he was meant to learn to dive deep into his subconscious and face his deepest fears. His lesson probably spans more than one lifetime 5. Her lesson – What she was meant to learn. Example: 8 of Wands – For those Empress-related issues her lesson was to slow down and pause for contemplation, perspective and spiritual instruction 6. How he did – A report card from the Cosmos. Example: 6 of Wands – Initially brave and boisterous, pride may have obscured the vision and prevented him from diving deep into the murky waters of The Moon 7. How she did – A report card from the Cosmos. Example: The Lovers – She kept her heart open but may have struggled with making the right choices due to a lack of prudence which depends on deliberation 8. Karma – This indicates if there are cords that need to be cut. Example: The Devil – Yes, a definite sign that cord cutting would be helpful. There may have been karmic issues coming into this relationship with a Major as the first card and if anything, more karma has been generated. This doesn’t mean it can’t be resolved for each party individually though – All it takes is a willingness to forgive and release, both of which are usually easier once a bird’s-eye perspective of what is going on has been gained. A whopping 5 out of 8 cards in this sample reading are Majors, a strong indication of a soul mate bond between these two. Even with the karma released and full healing taking place in this incarnation, it is possible...

The Ultimate “Will He Come Back?” Tarot Spread

The Ultimate “Will He Come Back?” Tarot Spread

This is one of the most often asked questions I get as a Tarot Reader.  It is hard to move on without knowing the answer if we still love the one who left, even if we know in our minds that moving on is for the best. In some cases, when it’s clear that you have had a narrow escape, it might be better to suggest cord cutting rather than looking into if the abuser will be back… but in the end it’s not for the reader to judge. We all have free will and it is a well-known fact that many many people on this planet choose to live in co-dependent and/or toxic relationships. Sometimes relationships fall apart and we are quick to judge the other person, blaming the breakdown on them when really we know that it takes two and you are just as responsible as they for creating the dynamic you had and that led to the breakdown. Anyone who has been around for a while will want to avoid taking sides when the relationships of friends fall apart for this very reason. Those who do take sides often had a vested interest in seeing the relationship end to begin with, or they are manipulated into taking sides. There are ways to supporting the one who is hurting without playing the blame game, and I say that having lived long enough to play every position in the field… But I digress. I woke up this morning with the image of a door-shaped spread in my head: If what you desire deep down is hidden behind a magic door, what would the door look like? What kind of lock would it have? What is the key like? Are you holding the key? What is the handle like? What does it feel like to push the door open and step through? Granted, if applied to the desire to reconnect with an ex, this implies that unlocking the door to an AWOL lover is in our control. We all know it isn’t as simple as that. However, the cards can give us clues about what we can and can’t do to reconnect in this situation. The Magic Door Spread truly is a magical spread in that it sheds light on all aspects of the desire to reconnect as well as the best way forward (if there is one). 1. Your motivation – The first card shows you the real underlying reason for your desire to reconnect. It indicates if you want them back to soothe a bruised ego or if there is true love there. It tells you if you feel that you didn’t learn all you needed to learn or if you are just struggling with letting go. 2. & 3. What you had – These two cards represent the relationship dynamic you had in the past and...

Cord Cutting with the Angels and The Devil

Cord Cutting with the Angels and The Devil

Can another person steal your energy? Yes. As long as you are not aware of what is happening within your own energy field, another person can quite easily attach a psychic cord to a hook in your aura. This may or may not be something the other person is aware of doing. The most likely scenario is that they don’t know that they have latched on and are feeding on your energy. The person stealing or feeding off the energy of another is known as an energy vampire. Most people have hooks in their energy field. The true nature of these hooks is that they are unhealed wounds that leave us vulnerable to psychic attack. The best protection is prevention through working through any old lingering issues which have resulted in unforgiveness, as well as daily chakra clearing and balancing but if you know that you have been corded by another person you need to take more drastic measures, a.k.a ‘cord cutting.’ The easiest way to do this is to visualise the cord between you and the other person and the watch in your mind’s eye how Archangel Michael cuts the cord between you and the other person. Ask Archangel Raphael to heal old wounds and smooth the aura out to remove any hooks that would facilitate future attacks. You can also call on Archangel Jeremiel for help with integrating the lessons that came with this relationship and to move forward with the understanding but without any of the pain. It can take a while after cord cutting because the wounds will only heal completely if you can release the person who inflicted them through forgiveness. Daily meditation will speed the process up. It is through meditation that we learn to look at things objectively and with compassion toward all concerned. To strengthen the psychological effect you can do the cord cutting in a ritual using The Devil Tarot card from a deck that either already has cards missing or that you have dedicated to use for Tarot magick. It needs to be one of the traditional Devil Tarot images with the devil holding chains to a male and a female, such as the one in the Tarot de Marseilles above. Ground, centre and protect yourself. Light a black candle for banishing unwanted influences. Cut the card in half while invoking Archangel Michael. This cuts the cord permanently between you and the other person. Then burn each half of the cards on the candle flame (make sure you have a fire-proof container to place the card in) while invoking Archangel Raphael, asking to be released and fully forgiving the person who inflicted the wound in the first place. Saturday is the best day for banishing and the waning Moon is the best lunar phase to work with for releasing things. Remember that forgiving someone doesn’t mean that you have to...

Heart-Healing with the Angels and Tarot

Heart-Healing with the Angels and Tarot

This is a simple three card spread you can do if you need heart-healing after a divorce or break-up. It can also be used for any other types of grief and loss. Simply get your cards out, light a candle and invoke your guardian angel. It doesn’t matter if you know your angel by name – s/he will still hear your request. Your guardian angel, who knows you more intimately than any other being, will protect you and help you understand the healing messages you are receiving from the Tarot. Then politely ask the archangels Michael, Raphael and Chamuel to join you. Ask for divine guidance and healing for your heart. Relax by taking a few deep breaths and shuffle your deck. Pull three cards: 1. Archangel Michael – To help you see which cords to the past you need to cut or what you need to do to protect yourself from negativity. 2. Archangel Raphael – Shows you what you can do to heal your heart and harmonise conflicting energies/interests. 3. Archangel Chamuel – This card gives you clues about ways to lovingly care for and nurture yourself while your heart heals. Close the reading by giving thanks to the Everlasting and your angels. Sample Heart-Healing Tarot Reading with the Archangels The thing that really struck me about in this reading is how well the colours in each card correspond to the Archangels. The first card, the 9 of Cups, has a lot of Gold – a colour of happiness and abundance. This is fitting both for the joyful 9 of Cups and for Archangel Michael, whose colours are blue and gold. The message is that I need completely stop drinking alcohol. OK, so this may not be your bog standard translation of the 9 of Cups but remember we are looking for something to cut out, leave behind or let go of here… and the image does say more than a thousand words. The second card, the 3 of Pentacles, is full of healing green – the colour of archangel Raphael. I can use this colour to harmonise and balance all my chakras but in particular my heart chakra. The man’s coat is green which tells me that I can visualise myself wearing a green clock, covering all my chakras. The house in the background of the 3 of Pentacles is also green. This tells me that I can affect my levels of peace and harmony through creating a decluttered and stress-free home environment. Some green plants might be a good idea. I haven’t had potted plants for years. Maybe it’s time I got some… Oh, and look at those violins at the top of the card! It is definitely a nudge to keep some healing tunes playing throughout the day. The final card represents the wisdom of the archangel Chamuel and shows me how I can...
