Get to Know Your Dragon Guide Tarot Spread

Do you like dragons? A lover of fairy tales, they have always fascinated me! The fact that they exist in the myth and lore of all cultures around the world is enough to make you realise that they are real even if most people can't see them these days.

Have you perhaps had the (rather terrifying) pleasure of meeting a dragon already? I met one shortly after an attunement to dragon Reiki. She was bent over my bed one night as I woke up. I found myself completely hypnotised by her gaze.


5 Misconceptions and 5 Realistic Expectations of Tarot Readers

5 Common Misconceptions People Have of Tarot Readers

1. Mind Reading? Contrary to popular belief, Tarot Readers are not mind readers. Depending on the reader's own personal style, you may or may not have to state your question out loud but what comes out in the reading is a reflection of the issue at hand, not a result of the Tarot Reader being inside your mind.

2. Psychic? Tarot Reader does not equal Psychic. There are Tarot Readers who are psychic and Tarot Readers who are not. Being psychic does not necessarily make you a better Tarot Reader. If it is important to you that your Tarot Reader is Psychic too, ask!


The Carpe Diem Tarot Spread - Dedicated to Robin Williams

A huge fan of Robin Williams, both as an actor/comedian and as a human being, I have decided to dedicate today's Tarot Spread to him for all the smiles and human warmth he brought to all of our lives.

One of the films I have really fond memories of is the Dead Poet Society and the picture quote above is from that film. My earliest memory of Robin Williams is the 70's sitcom Mork and Mindy, making him one of the first actors I have clear memories of. He made an impression on me then and continued to do so for almost four more decades.

Robin Williams is thought to have committed suicide due to severe depression. I find that so poignant when his own life and work served as a beacon of hope for so many. He is the archetypal Wounded Healer, giving to others what he was incapable of giving to himself. 

The Carpe Diem Tarot Spread is based on the Top 5 Regrets of the Dying:

10 Signs That You Are Ready To Go Pro with Your Tarot

Are you wanting to become a professional Tarot reader but are not quite sure if you have what it takes to go pro? Find out what sorts the wannabes from the real deal. This is the check list I wish someone had written for me when I first started hoping that my passion would one day become my profession.

Get Back on Track With the Life Purpose Tarot Spread

Have you been sidetracked from your life purpose? Are your goals and dreams on the back burner? Do you feel as if fate is at cross purposes with your destiny and desire to serve humanity with your gifts for the Highest Good of All?

Knowing your life purpose and fulfilling it is not always the same. Dreams of a brighter future that glimmer tantalisingly by moonlight, often seem pale and unachievable in the harsh light of day. Discerning between fantasy and one's true calling can be tricky. The Tarot can help!

The Tarot and Oracle spread below uses three different Tarot decks to allow for repetition of significant cards. In addition to three Tarot cards each for Fate/Soul Contract (The Wheel of Fortune), Current Lesson (The Fool) and Action Advice (Strength), there is an Oracle (of your choice) card for the same. The oracle cards will provide spiritual insights and guidance.


Deck Interview with the Daemon Tarot by Ariana Osborne

I first stumbled across the visually appealing Daemon Tarot on tumblr and decided I had to have it, not knowing if I would be able to divine with it or not. This is not a Tarot deck at all, by the way, as the guide book clearly states. It's a 69 card oracle - each card depicting  a demon/daemon.

After looking through the images and reading snippets from the guide book, I'm still not sure if this deck is readable even though the antique images by Louis Breton are really cool. There is a brief introductory snippet about each daemon in the book by Ariana Osborne but the actual divinatory guidance is scant (only one sentence for each card). However, Osborne does encourage the reader to come up with their own meanings.
