When Your Intuition is Being Contradicted by the Tarot…

During one recent reading, a client asked about whether to launch a particular campaign to help some young people.

The cards revealed that it was a good idea, but he needs to slow down.

This bothered my client. He was all keyed up to go forward. He said, “But my intuition says to go forward on this now.

My client’s first thought was that this was a “this or that” situation.

I suggested that this could be an “and” situation.

“The cards reveal that it is time to slow down. If you slowed down, what would you be doing?” I asked.

“I would be asking for more opinions about how to refine the words of the campaign,” my client said.

“Could you make some calls? Maybe if you did that right away, maybe you would still be making progress. How does that sound?” I asked.

“It sounds … I think I could make the campaign better. That’s good!” my client said, with a smile.

When I’m doing a reading, I ask questions to help the person access their intuition.

“Intuition is seeing with the soul.” ― Dean Koontz

When you look with your soul, you are seeing your true self and the Gods. The Gods are here to support you, and many times they do it through your intuition.

“Don’t try to comprehend with your mind. Your minds are very limited. Use your intuition.” ― Madeleine L’Engle

Many people don’t trust themselves when reading the cards because they are using their minds to “see” the Tarot.

The Tarot cards show you different archetypes with pictures. You need to go past the images to receive the messages.

Reach out with your intuition. What does this feel like? Are you receiving images, words, feelings or thoughts? Look at the colors. How do you feel about them?

Here is an important question: Is there something that you must face and you may need to brace yourself?

“Yes, the truth may hurt but lies will become a crutch and will cripple you.” – Stephen T. Scott

A combination of your intuition plus the Tarot can open a door. You may see some things for the first time.

A life lived with eyes wide open becomes a wondrous adventure.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Using the Tarot in Everyday Life

“What happens during a Tarot reading?” my friend, Sandra, asked.

“It’s a chance to get insights from the God and the Goddess,” I replied.

“Oh, I had not heard that!”

I have three insights for you…

  1. Ask the right questions.

What is a “right question”? Here are examples:

  • How do I know when…?
  • What should I look for when…?
  • What does it look like when…?

My spiritual elders note that it is ethically wrong to delve into other people’s thoughts and feelings. So, avoid questions like: a) “Does Nancy think I’m cute?” – b) “When will my boyfriend leave his wife?” – c) “When is the job mine?” – or d) “When will I sell my house?”

Some authors suggest that asking the Tarot to “predict” certain outcomes is not helpful. They note that the Universe keeps flowing, and people and beings are making new choices all the time. If you ask a question like “When will my house sell?” the answer you see may only be accurate for that moment in time.

Perhaps a better question to ask would be, “Please give me the signs for when my house is about to sell.”

  1. Where does all the guidance come from?

My impression is that when you do a Tarot reading, you are communicating with the Gods.

Several authors suggest that the Tarot is connected to intuition or the Universe. I feel that intuition and the Universe are forms of the God and Goddess.

Your Intuition is knowing that the Gods placed inside of you. Intuition helps guide us on our life path. And the Universe is The All. The All is everything and everyone. Several spiritual elders suggest that The All is manifested as the God and the Goddess.

  1. Ideas for Before and After the Tarot Reading

It is good to have a Tarot journal to write down details of your reading. For example:

Date of Reading:

Who the Reading was for:

Card Spread Used:

Question Asked:

Cards Pulled:

The Placement of Each Card:

Answer and Insight Given:

Your Results (after one month):

You can set up a sacred space before you do a Tarot reading. You could cast a Circle. However, you are not required to do so. Also, consider saying a prayer before you do your Tarot reading.

Immediately after the Tarot reading, you can say a prayer of gratitude.

After the reading, you can meditate. During that meditation session, you can ask the God and Goddess to add to your understanding of details that arose in the Tarot reading.

May these insights support you on your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Stay Strong in Tough Times – Use Spiritual Tools

“Surgery again?” my friend, Kim, asked.

“This time went better,” I replied.

Years ago, when I had my first surgery that removed my spleen, I did not ask the Gods for Their intervention. I’m still surprised about that.

In recent days, I had surgery again. It was significant because the surgical team used anesthesia to have me fully unconscious.

For this surgery, I put my spiritual tools into action.

I have three insights for you:

  1. Talk with the Goddess

In my previous surgery, I just resigned myself that I would either live or die.

This time, I talked to the Goddess and asked Her to keep me safe. During a quiet time as I talked with the Goddess, deep in my heart, I felt Her support. I had the feeling of being serene and that everything was going to be just fine.

I invite you to use prayer, and you can just speak to the Goddess in your own thoughts.

  1. Ask your community for support with rituals and prayer

I invited people in my circle to do a candle ritual to support me to have a successful surgery, to keep me safe, and to keep me free of surgical complications.

  1. Consider divinatory tools

When I spread the Tarot cards, I saw a positive message. This message was clear and to the point: I was going to be okay. The positive reading helped me feel secure in that I was going to flow well through surgery and the healing process.

(Special Note: If you have a reading that causes you discomfort, then turn to the Gods for Their guidance. You can ask for the Gods’ intervention.)

I invite you to turn to your spiritual path and spiritual tools during the big and tough situations of life. Ask the Gods for help. You are likely to find that They help you achieve peace where strife may be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

When the Tarot Gives You a Bad Reading — What You Can Do

“So, I put the Tarot spread down, and then I caught my breath,” one of my Wiccan elders told me.

“Then what happened?” I asked.

“I knew that it was going to be tough to express what the cards were saying to my friend,” my Wiccan elder said.

I understood the situation. She was going to have to tell her friend something that she did not want to hear.

A significant number of people are concerned about having to face a “bad reading.” It’s tough enough to talk about it. It can be even harder to face a tough Tarot reading that applies to you.

Here are three steps to help you work through the dark waters of bad news.

  1. Postpone Being Upset by Doing a Meditation

Go into meditation and ask for Goddess’s Viewpoint on the matter. You may be surprised! Some events that look bad at first glance are actually good news.

I have a friend who taught college students. She worked at many different colleges to make ends meet. One day she was doing a reading and saw that she would stop teaching college students. She was devastated.

Then, she did a meditation and asked the Goddess what to do …

  1. Do Another Spread the Next Day

She asked the question “If I do _____, what is the outcome?” When she read the answer, she was puzzled. It gave her the same answer as the day before.

So, she repeated the step of meditation to ask for guidance and to see the situation clearly.

She also talked with her Wiccan Elders and other trustworthy people.

  1. Take Positive Action and Add Meditation

The next day she did what she hoped was a positive action related to her situation. She signed up for a Toastmasters group (a group where people practice public speaking)—based on a vague notion that she might become a life coach and giving speeches would help her find clients.

She now says that she gets to work with clients who really want her help—which is quite different from teaching required college classes. She is now free of half-hearted efforts from a significant number of college students. (She hated giving out bad grades.)

So, the “Bad News” that she thought she had received turned out to be a blessing to help her make a transition into what she was meant to do.

Doing meditation sessions and asking for Goddess’s viewpoint can really open up possibilities in your life. Not all endings are bad—although they might include pain at first.

May these three steps help you as you discover your next chapter of life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

The Tarot—See the Future—and Beware of the Pitfalls

“Are you sure?” my friend, Laura, asked.

“That’s what the Tarot cards are showing me,” I replied.

“How accurate is this? Is my marketing campaign really going to tank?”

“As I shared with you before … when I do a reading, it’s like taking a glance at a river that is flowing,” I said.

Some Insights about a Tarot Reading

  1. Just because the Tarot gives you an answer, it doesn’t mean it will stay the same.

The Tarot spread of cards that you read is a snapshot in time. If you do nothing and follow the course you’re on, at the moment you view the Tarot spread, you may find that the outcome stays the same.

However, if you change your actions, things can change.

This is why it is so hard sometimes to pin down exact outcomes and the final results that may manifest.

  1. Viewing the Tarot spread has an influence on the future timeline.

Seeing the Tarot spread gives you new information. What will you do with that information? Will you apply yourself to taking action to change the outcome? Perhaps, this is your chance to change your future!

Still, the appropriate use of the Tarot depends on a lot of variables. It’s a truly complicated tool.

Although an outcome may change from the time of your Tarot spread to the future happening, you may still find the Tarot can prove to be helpful in certain circumstances.

Side note: Usually, the major arcana are things one cannot change, and the minor arcana are things you can change. And this depends on which card is next to another. Yes, I did say that the Tarot can be complicated.

Wiccans use the Tarot for many situations including to help people see their choices, to see what actions may be viable, and more.

Like any powerful tool, take care with your use of the Tarot.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
