I admit I was a little nervous getting ready for my very first Tarot workshop, as I find it quite daunting to talk about myself and my art … Yet, walking through the door to the peaceful Magick Circle, butterflies settled, and I found myself looking forward to what the afternoon would bring. Luna and Bernie are just so good at making you feel welcome; if you are local to the coast, make sure to pop into their growing haven of magical things! Personally, I cannot wait to see Luna’s ‘flying lessons’ sign go up on the door of her reading room (it’s a hoot!) …
A magical afternoon with cards
5 lovely women came to the workshop, which turned out to be a special and truly magical event – thank you ladies :) We talked about tarot, favourite cards, types of readings and symbolism in cards, as the afternoon literally flew by … We had a yummy afternoon tea (thank you Bernie), and a nice group reading to end the day… And we’re already talking about doing repeat in the new year :)
Favourite tarot cards …
Every card has something to offer in a reading, be that good advice, insight or a reminder – there are no bad cards … so having favourites may seem a little silly, but not necessarily … The cards we feel a stronger connection to (whether they are in a reading or not), have an important role to play. Below, are some of my personal favourites:
- The Moon – when imagination and dreams stray from reality, I’m glad to have the moon shine it’s light on the shadow lands
- The Tower – inevitable big change brings something new. I also like this card because it was the first one I ever had in a reading
- Strength – drawing on inner strength and courage is a powerful reminder of ‘can do’
- The Sun – positive, happy, joyful and radiant – what’s not to like? :)
- Queen of Swords – she has clarity and sharp wit, and she tells it like it is.
Are there cards that you feel more connected to than others?
