The Christmas Present Tarot Spread

Have you been naughty or nice this year, dear reader? Since you are reading this, I will make a bet that you are a nice and kind person and that your actions in 2014 have been a reflection of your gracious nature. 

Tarotize usually attracts the most conscientious souls... the ones that wish to improve themselves (Mind Body and Spirit) as well as to work for the greater good of all of mankind. Kindred lightworkers, seers and healers all gather here.

That is why I thought it would be nice to take a break from our usual hard work. The spread above is a feel-good spread - my gift to you for being so darn good all year long! You get a sneak peek at the rewards waiting on the other side of New Year's.

It's a simple three card spread that is so simple that you can do it even after a glass mulled wine (or three)...


Social Media 101 for Tarotpreneurs - 10 Tricks You Can't Afford To Miss

Lord Sugar said on The Apprentice last night 'Just because you've worked every station at McDonalds doesn't mean you can run a successful restaurant.' Equally, just because you hang out on most social media platforms, it doesn't mean that you are social media savvy to the extent you need to be when you go pro with your online Tarot services.

While I did take advice and read up on how to use social media for business when I went pro in 2011, it was still a steep learning curve for me, so I would like to share with you some of the tricks I learned that has helped me gain a massive following and allowed new clients to find me.

1. Build and curate your content carefully. The content you share via your social media channels becomes your calling card and allows the right people/clients to find you. You may find that what you share shifts more in favour of articles and images that help and inspire rather than pictures of you and your bff's on the lash. If not, you are missing a trick.


Dance Like a Fool!

“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
What do you think The Fool and the Dancer of The World do when they meet at the pause at the end of a cycle of creation? They dance! In this wordless space before the next Word is spoken is where they are both completely free. 

This is what The Fool has to say about dancing:

You know, I totally dance as if nobody is watching! I never took any classes and I don't care what it looks like. I'm completely present in the moment and excited to find out where the music will take me next. The Emperor likes to scold me and constantly tells me I need lessons... Maybe one day... but for now, I would like to dance with you - Will you join me?

This is what The World Dancer says about dancing:


The Mystical Sign Tarot Spread

We're having a bit of a throwback Thursday here today with this spread because it's been almost exactly 4 years since I created it. At the time I was pregnant but about to lose the baby I was carrying... I had received a sign of grace and it is what prompted this spread creation. 

Recently, at the passing of my father, I received another sign - an angelic symbol... I woke up remembering the symbol below from a dream... A miracle in itself as I'm probably the least visual person you're likely to come across!


Intuitive Two Choices Tarot Spread

Got a 'two choices' type question? This intuitive layout is the Tarot spread I use for tuning in and choosing the path that best aligns me with Higher Will. This post is best read after THIS one but feel free to continue reading if you are already used to reading the cards intuitively and without set positional meanings.

Basically, you read this in three groups of three cards. The first three cards tell a story about your background and where you're at now with regards to the choice you are facing.

The second group of three Tarot cards shows you how things are likely to progress if you go down the path of choice A and the third group of three cards show you how things are likely to progress if you go down the path of choice B.

The tenth and final card should be chosen from a Majors only deck (I chose to work with the 3D Tarot) and this is the card that tells you the real issue your Higher Self is facing behind the bleedingly obvious outer circumstances and your own angst.


Tarotize Trending on Tsu???

Hehe... sorry, I just wanted a title with an alliteration... and I have been spending an awful lot of time on Tsu lately. In fact, that is what I'm doing a reading on today. I want to see if Tsu will be a good social media platform for me to expand my online network and share my work.

"What is Tsu?," I hear you asking?

It is the new Facebook... but instead of having to pay to 'boost' your posts and make them visible in peoples' feeds, you get paid for sharing valuable content. Tsu gives 90% of the ad revenue generated to its users. Really?! Yes, really! Oh, and you also get to remain the owner of any content you share. Pretty nifty, as this is a first for any social media platform.


The Guardian Angel Tarot Review

Does the world really need another deck of cards from Doreen Virtue? More specifically, do we need another DV Tarot deck? The Guardian Angel Tarot, The World's Gentlest and Sweetest Tarot Cards, is her third, produced in as many years and it is by far the most sugary Tarot deck I have ever come across. It is like a strawberry and cream cake served in your grandmother's garden on one of those rare summer's days when the temperature is just right, the breeze feels like a sweet caress and the wasps haven't yet figured out that you're having cordial with your cake.
