Free tarot readings!

I’m trying to get better at my tarot skills and need something to do while I’m dealing with all this shit in my personal life. So I’ve decided to start giving out free tarot readings for a while! I’ll do a one card style, past present and future spread, or really anything else that you would like within reason.

Just message me or ask me and let me know if you want a general reading, or if you have a specific question, and give me something personal about you (nothing crazy just maybe your name and another fact about you) so that I can try and better connect my deck with your energy since I’m still new to giving readings over long distance.

Blessed be darlings!

i’m just curious if anyone would be interested in me doing a tarot deck giveaway????

I’d include a handmade tarot card bag, and a couple of crystals along with a small handmade bag for them as well…….and maybe some other goodies if I can think of anything else (jar spells???? free tarot reading???? who knows)

Deck: Sun and Moon Tarot by Vanessa Decort, Copyright 2010 US Games Systems Inc.

Your Influence – King of Wands

You are going into this situation with high expectations that you will be a uniting force to bring people together. This is a time when you feel like you are in control of the situation and that others will follow along with you.

The Influence of Others – The Tower

This card shows that others may be coming into this hang out with a negative attitude that will impact the group. Perhaps someone knows something the others don’t or they are just in a bad mood. Either way one or more people involved in the hang out aren’t very thrilled about out the situation.

Internal Influences – Prince of Wands Reversed

This card can indicate a time of delays which will cause you frustration and a feeling of being stuck. You may become angry at others for the way they are acting which can cause you to act out of character. As a defense mechanism, you may try to compensate for the fact that you can’t control what is happening by pretending nothing is wrong and becoming internally emotional.

Outside Influences – Wheel of Fortune

Possible Positives – Four of Pentacles Reversed

This card shows the positives that you will be able to find while you are spending this time with others. You will find that material items will not hinder your time and everyone will be able to comfortably spend some money on things that they want to.  

Possible Negatives – The Empress Reversed

This card suggests a loss of personal power because of placing too much emphasis on others rather than yourself. You may find that it is difficult to work with others as there is a lack of understanding between you.  Part of the problem you may face is others being indecisive and unable to find direction.

Overall Experience – Six of Cups Reversed

This card suggests that there are difficult feelings from your past that could be brought up during the group hang out. You may have some things to deal with that you had thought were over and in your past. While you are ready to put these feelings away, others may not be so quick to let things go.

Hey! I have to tell you all about this amazing app I came across today while looking through tarot creators’ accounts.

This app is called Labyrinthos Academy, from the creator of the Golden Thread tarot and Luminous Spirit Deck! It’s a matching activity app that teaches you the meanings of the 78 tarot cards, both right side up and reversed.

It’s completely free and the only commitment to the app is making an account in order to use it. From there, you choose whether you’re a witch, a wizard, or a mage (I’m assuming it’s female/male/non-binary), and you learn the meanings using a digital version of the Golden Thread tarot deck. Every time you pass a lesson, you get somewhere between 3-5 cards that you can study! As you complete more lessons, your little character levels up and gains some cute new attire.

I’ve been trying to learn tarot for such a long time, but everything was too messy and complicated for me. Labyrinthos Academy has been, by far, the easiest way for me to learn! The cards have an easy-to-read font and the illustrations match the adjectives so well that it’s easy to make the connection and remember.

It’s available for iOS and Android! And remember–it’s free! I’m in no way affiliated with the app or the tarot cards (nor their creator); I don’t even have a single tarot deck myself! But I wanted to share this so other witches who were struggling like me had a place to learn!

How to Read Tarot Cards When You Don’t Know Shit

OR: HOW I STOPPED WORRYING AND LEARNED TO LOVE PRACTICING TAROT

This is a simple exercise I’ve done really to hone my intuition while divining. I like to pull a three card spread (past, present, future) but you can really use whichever spread you’d like.

Major Arcana:

  • Most trump cards can be self explanatory if you’re good at word association.
  • The Fool card starts a story that follows a journey through to the World, the end. Everything in between is character development.
  • Death does not mean death. Unlike most horror films, its appearance can actually signal a new beginning or change.

Minor Arcana:
Know what each suit means or symbolizes in general.

  • Cups: Water, focuses on your emotional self, creativity and romance, following your heart over your head.
  • Pentacles: Earth, focuses on your physical self, material ideas like business or wealth, manifestation.
  • Swords: Air, focuses on your mental self, action and concentration, intelligence and conflict.
  • Wands: Fire, focuses on your spiritual self, intuition and inspiration, values and flaws.

All in All: 

  • Use the context clues in the imagery of your cards to guide your intuition.
  • Don’t worry about misreading a card or getting anything wrong. This is really about trusting yourself and your gut instincts.
  • Don’t be afraid to take the surface value of the card during this exercise. It’s just an exercise. 

I hope this helped you if you’re just starting out, want to try a different method to divining with tarot, or just want to generally work on trusting your gut.

Voltron Tarot Cards ___ Part 1

First Four.

Lance is Cups which represents Water. Keith is wands which represents fire. Pidge is swords or Air. And Hunk is Pentacles or Earth. Each has numbers like playing cards. I

Been working on this for the past week. I’ve got video of me working on each one so there will be videos popping up as they go. I’m not sold on the designs of these. I would love to make a set for sale but it would take a lot of time.

The next four I plan to post will be some of the trump cards. The magician, the lovers, the empress and the fool. Plenty of characters in Voltron to work with so it should be a blast making them. They won’t all be this space and dark… probably.
