Daily Tarot Card~

Tarot can be a wonderful tool in many ways, one of which is the simplest, yet I find also the most effective. A daily card is a wonderful tool on so many levels.  Personally I pull a  card per day, to find out what the day holds for me. It is a  general card, I do not ask any question. This one card a day can be very enlightening, perhaps even the most enlightening aspect of the Tarot in my opinion.  This card  will tell you what you need to know, to best manage the day, it will tell you the surprises you will face that day. It will tell you if there are obstacles, to be overcome, or if love will surprise you that day. A daily card in ones busy day to day routine, can be quite a blessing. Just knowing somethings coming early on in the day taking the surprise out of it can help you have such a better reaction to it when it happens. Sometimes my daily card enlightens to major things, like the day the sewer line broke ( that was a day let me tell yas, and i learned to have that number on speed dial if i ever pull that card again!)  Or sometimes it will tell of arguments best avoided. Some times just knowing its about to occur will pave a path for you to avoid getting stuck in the middle of it.  Sometimes it will tell you something very important…. Something that you may not understand exactly why at the time, but tells you to stay home that day. When you do you avoid a major bad thing from happening. I personally use a  daily card to know what the day will bring and let me tell ya you find out some very surprising things! I remember one time pulling the king of rods and the plumbing broke in my house that day! lets just say it was sooo fitting and i never thought of that card the same way again! You can know whats about to be if you take just a general look daily. Sometimes we miss out on important things by just asking specifically sometimes its a general reading we are needing!  Sometimes it will tell you a surprise is coming, or someone will reveal a special emotion to you. No matter what the daily card tells you, it is helpful to know when you start your day what to expect of it. Some how knowing helps lessen the bad days, and gives excitement to the good ones! Try it I’m sure you will like it! Just be sure to listen to the message they are conveying. Daily card readings, can be one of the most valuable tools, helping you prepare for what is coming.

History of the Tarot By D.J. Ownbey

July 30th, 2009

by DJ Ownbey

The first two decks that we know of appeared in 1441 and 1450, the later being the 78 card deck we are familiar with today (Vistonti-Sforsa of 1450).

The cards were originally known by the name Tarocchi (many allege they were named after a river and town where the first two decks originated (in Italy)—although this is speculation for the most part.
The French shortened tarocchi to “Tarot.” Most Europeans saw the cards as nothing more then a harmless game, much like we see our modern day playing cards. In fact, our modern day playing cards originate from the tarot (minor arcana-52 cards) The symbols change on our modern cards from cups to hearts, from swords to spades, from wands to clubs, and from pentacles to diamonds.

I believe this harmless game presentation was very wise idea—seeing how any type of Gnosticism (belief that we are divine and can connect directly with god—without a middle man) was punishable by torture and\ or death. Having ideas outside the scope of church approved ones, was a perilous journey in the middle ages.
Many people to this day, even professional readers, do not understand the “secret teaching to mastery” (enlightenment) the tarot comes to teach us— I plan to explore some of the hidden mysteries for the reader in future articles on this fascinating subject.

Tarot and the 4th of July

Tarot and how it relates to the fourth of July.

Just as our country, went through a lot, to be free nation that it is, so did the Fool, along his journey. Both started out as an idea, a thought, a dream. Upon realizing of the dream, both experiment with the joys, and the hardships that this new freedom brings. The Tarot, like our country, has more than one country of origin. The tarot, in the beginning was not allowed to depict living things, being an Islamic in the 14th century. The Tarot, much like our country, continued to grow with experiences and spread, even now a continuous change is occurring. Our country is much different now, then it was at that time it was founded. Many things have changed, but our freedom still remains, and part of freedom is in being able to change. All in all, we are all on the journey or independance, whether we take it with a deck of tarot cards, or as a country learning its independence. One of the great things about being free, is the freedom that we have, of speech, religion, study, anything really. How great a country, where we can pick up the deck of cards, and find out our future destiny, without fear of punishment, or persecution. Freedom, like a deck of cards does come with a price, one must treat them with respect, and responsibly. There are many freedoms to celebrate on the fourth, this is just wonderful that the tarot can be one of them!

The Twisting Path

The Tarot cards tell a wonderful and fascinating story through their symbols, numbers, colors and the intuition and experience of the reader. They show your journey through life by the interpretation of the language of what is called symbolism.
The Fool makes a journey through the Major Arcana much the same as we make our journey through life. We can use the Tarot as a road map to guide us in our lives, unlike the Fool who does not have a guide and has only himself to rely upon. We are blessed to have instruction in our lives unlike the Fool who goes alone by instinct.

When the symbols of the tarot are translated correctly they tell a wonderful story of our past present and what may be our future. Experience can be a crucial factor in the translation of this amazing language of the Tarot and someone that has an abundance of experience in this realm can tell a wonderful tale indeed. Someone with experience will point out the fine details that are so apparent in the Tarot when you only know where to look. These details seem to jump out from the cards to an experienced reader. The journey of the Tarot can unfold to be a truly beautiful and timeless encounter which we all can experience and cherish for ourselves.

Remember that the future is not written in stone and you can do something about it. If you don’t like where your path is headed, just like with the help of a detour sigh on the interstate, you can avoid most of life’s bumpy journey with the assistance of the signs of the Tarot to provide you with a safe journey to the realization of your destination.

Take a note from the Fool enjoy life, smell the flowers, try to remember that you don’t have to take yourself so seriously. Just like the Fool carries what is important to him in his pack, you can choose which of your life experiences you want to carry with you. Keep in mind its not the experiences along the journey which are important its how we handle them, whether we learn, let go and move forward or if we choose to carry our experiences like a burden.

The Major Arcana, cards show us the things that we may have less control over in our lives, things that are more set in motion from our past actions, and that we have less ability to change, but we can at least brace ourselves for what is to come if we know what to expect and in that way we can choose how we will react to a certain situation when or if it arises. The Lesser Arcana shows us the things in our lives that are more easily changed or controlled and they deal with the more mundane and basic themes of our lives. The day to day interactions of ourselves with those around us and the outcome of these exchanges.

When laid out the Tarot cards will show a picture of the events of our lives that unfold and come to life like the frames of a moving picture show on the big screen. Don’t wait till tomorrow has soured your wine, the cards can come alive in the hands of someone with experience, intuition and natural ability to paint a wonderful picture of how amazing life can truly be.
