The Empress

Keywords: ideas, creative impulses, intellect!

Astrological Correspondence: Venus

The Empress signifies the queen of life, the ideal woman, the archetypal mother. She represents the matriarchal goddess, being part of nature, fertility, sexuality, and the generative forces. As the life-giving mother she is connected to the Earth and the natural rhythms, the appreciation of the senses. As a card of good fortune she signifies that if we are gentle and caring, as well as patient, we can bring anything to fruition; we have to be able to wait until the time is right for action so that we can reap the rewards; as a result, hard work pays off and relationships become satisfying. The Empress can, in negative situations, also depict vanity, undeveloped creativity, stagnation, and apathy.

Tarot 101: Shattering the Myths of Tarot

Tarot 101: Shattering the Myths of Tarot

Learn the truth about this amazing tool

 

Does the Tarot seems intimidating? Have you had a fear of getting readings? Unsure of what the Tarot does? Brigit Esselmont, founder of BiddyTarot.com, will help you demystify Tarot, busting some of the biggest myths about reading Tarot cards…

Myth 1: You have to be psychic to read Tarot

Many people will have you believe that you have to be psychic to read Tarot. That is, to be a good Tarot reader, you have to have some sort of supernatural power that allows you to see into the future, know what people are thinking, or receive messages from the spirit world.

The truth is: You don’t have to be psychic to be a good Tarot reader. In fact, anyone can learn to read Tarot — including you. All you need to do is say yes to your intuition.

We are all intuitive beings. Every one of us. But many people have shut down their intuition, refusing to listen to their inner voice. They downplay the intuitive flashes they get and pass them off as a silly feeling that means nothing. Instead, say “yes” to those random, unexplainable messages you might receive that help you to navigate your life’s path. Say “yes” to going with your heart, not just your head.

Myth 2: Tarot will tell you your future

This one isn’t completely a myth, but it isn’t exactly the whole truth either… Many people see the Tarot as a fortunetelling tool. And, not only that, they believe that whatever the Tarot says will happen in the future, will happen, no matter what. Some people are so afraid of having their cards read because they worry that if they do, something bad will happen as a result.

The truth is: Tarot can tell you about not just your future, but also your past and your present. Understanding the past helps you discover the key lessons you’ve learned along your path so that you can make better decisions in the future. And understanding the present helps you discover what’s happening for you right now.

The future is not set in stone. Yes, the Tarot can predict the future — but “predict” is the key word here. It means that the Tarot can show you where you are headed based on where you are now. Don’t like where you’re headed? Then you can make changes right now to reshape your future! It all comes down to your free will and your ability to make choices.

Long story short: Tarot helps you understand your past and present to enable you to make good, positive choices that will shape your future. The future is in your hands and it’s yours to create.

Myth 3: Tarot is mysterious and complex

Look up “Tarot reader” on the internet and you’ll be met with images of mysterious-looking women in bohemian clothes, peering into a crystal ball, foretelling the future. This is not an accurate representation of what a Tarot reader is really like!

The truth is: People from ALL walks of life read Tarot — office workers, teachers, coaches, therapists, lawyers, executives, nurses — you name it. Just ordinary, normal people who have learned how to use the Tarot cards to connect with their intuition and navigate life’s challenges.

Tarot doesn’t have to be mysterious and complex. Tarot can be simple, fun and easy to learn. Anyone can do it, including you!

Your Daily Tarot Cards

The Daily Tarot Card

The Pope

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keywords: teaching, school, blessing, ritual, marriage, acting!

Astrological Correspondence: Taurus

As a priest, the Pope, or Hierophant, represents traditional values and moral development. He is the wise teacher or counselor guiding groups or collectives on their path in search for spiritual truth or meaning. Depicted as a religious figure in ceremonial vestments he interprets secret mysteries, divine law, and theological doctrine. Although this card implies that he is linked to the church, the Pope signifies not only organized religion but also focus on groups in general, such as schools, teams, companies – any group with fixed roles and assigned responsibilities. The Pope is a symbol for rules, procedures, structure, and ritual, creating harmony within groups and staying their course so they can find identity and progress as a whole. The negative imagery symbolizes dogmatism and inflexibility, extreme conformity, or conventionalism.

 

The Daily Tarot Love Card

The Emperor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today is perfection, in a good way. Why? Today represents someone’s advancement and growth in the ability to love. Someone, perhaps even the two people you are one-half of, grasps the realization that love is friendship intensified. If you’re dating and you want love, it is yours. The trick is to avoid being swept off your feet. Instead, grasp the idea of slowing down, knowing that time is on your side.

 

 

The Daily Erotic Tarot Card

The Pope

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Pope represents pure masculine energy, and even if you’re female you’re going to be identifying more with your male counterparts today. The Pope shows you that coming to terms with past mistakes and taking responsibility for them in the present eases sexual tension, so let go of the past to free yourself from your inhibitions. You actually have quite the skill set when it comes to making sexual moves, but waiting until the time is right before taking the plunge can be a real turn-on. Let the anticipation build until you can’t take it anymore!

 

 

The Daily Past Life Tarot Card

The Sun

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes numbers fill your head and although you do the math, the equations just keep coming. This could be a sign that in a past life you were an economist. You might not understand it exactly, but there is just something in your genes that has always attracted you to numbers. Your past life as an economist is probably still on the treadmill of reincarnation. You follow numbers through the journey of your many lives, finding solutions that create new numerical questions.

 

 

 

Daily Tarot Card

Tarot Card of the Day

Three of Coins

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This suit, most often named “Coins” or “Pentacles”, is a symbol for a magical talisman that represented wealth or potential. This suit represents something supportive that is available to you — whether it be health, some kind of talent, a material or financial resource.

The Three is traditionally the card of genius. Here we usually see a master craftsman conferring with his masons on the installation of a beautiful stained-glass window in the cathedral. This designer is often likened to Leonardo da Vinci or Michelangelo, a multi-talented visionary who has no peers in talent or productivity.

The masterwork is being proudly showcased for future generations, as an object of personal and collective pride. On some cards, the genius is portrayed at his studio, alone and burning the midnight oil, in a creative ferment — driven to draw, paint, invent, or whatever work genius wants to bring into creation. As a subtext to the rewards of genius are the days and weeks of intense concentration it takes to solve the problems that great works entail.

THIS TAROT CARD URGES YOU TO LOOK WITHIN

THIS TAROT CARD URGES YOU TO LOOK WITHIN

In this series, Jamie Richardson of Ember + Aura Tarot explains how to embrace the message of each major arcana card. 

The High Priestess is the gatekeeper between our inner and outer realms. She is the guardian of our deepest wisdom and intuition. When the High Priestess shows up, it’s time to slow down and turn within. Her language is symbolic; her methods mysterious; her pathways shadowy.  She often emerges after we have lost the girlishness and naivety of our youth when we’ve tired of social interactions and are beginning to explore our own depths.

The High Priestess loves nothing more than when we set aside our own agendas and rulebooks and simply listen to the silence of our evolving hearts—when we feel our way in the dark with no idea where we are going. She teaches us to develop and trust our second sight, the sacred gift of the Divine Feminine. Traditionally seated between two pillars representing interior and exterior worlds, the High Priestess patiently waits to offer her guidance to those who approach her.

Our intuition starts out strong in life. As children, we naturally follow our bliss and are able to blend aspects of work and play. Children rarely overanalyze and are able to easily listen to their hearts, and their subconscious and conscious minds are seamless and easy to bridge. In our society, however, it isn’t too long before children begin to realize that they are expected to succeed, compete, and achieve. The dark, mysterious, self-knowing aspects of the subconscious are cast aside and replaced with what we can see and judge in the full light of day. We begin to compare ourselves to others, trust only what gives us proven results, and work towards goals that bring us a sense of accomplishment. We stop climbing trees, trying to hear the thoughts of animals, chasing our imaginary friends, and finger-painting scenes that only we understand. We begin playing organized sports, earning gold stars, posting selfies, and planning out our futures.

When we abandon our trust of the unknown, when we stop turning within, our High Priestess goes deep underground.

Often, the High Priestess resurfaces when one has endured a particular tragedy or suffered a great loss. At these times, when the solid ground of our egos has crumbled, we are in a perfect position to take on deeper learning. We are ready to put our trust into that which we cannot see or measure. We are looking for a connection to our own Source and innate knowledge. Survivors of tragedy have profound potential for higher spiritual evolvement. The High Priestess, although dark and mysterious, has compassion for her followers and shows them only what they are ready to experience.

So what is the Tarot card trying to tell you? The truth is, this is an invitation. The High Priestess is confirming that you hold all of the answers to life’s questions in the hidden spaces of your own heart. Furthermore, the capacity to which you can open your heart and suspend your own need for visible signs is the degree to which you will experience a transformation of the mind. You will know you are on track when you begin to notice synchronicities between your inner exploration and your reality: a book suddenly appears about the mysteries of the Divine Feminine, an acquaintance invites you to a local full moon circle, or you receive an email about becoming attuned in Reiki. Your dreams may become more vivid and characters may appear, offering insight and clues about your existence. These are all strong examples of the language of the High Priestess.

When the High Priestess calls, it’s time to pay attention. Accept her invitation to walk between the seen and unseen worlds. Don’t be afraid to jump down the rabbit hole and explore what this vast inner-dimension holds for you, with its delicious darkness and ancient mysteries. Her greatest gift to you will be the unveiling of what you had all along: the ability to face the dark and bring your own truth into the light.

Tarot 101: Shattering the Myths of Tarot

Tarot 101: Shattering the Myths of Tarot

Learn the truth about this amazing tool

 

Does the Tarot seems intimidating? Have you had a fear of getting readings? Unsure of what the Tarot does? Brigit Esselmont, founder of BiddyTarot.com, will help you demystify Tarot, busting some of the biggest myths about reading Tarot cards…

Myth 1: You have to be psychic to read Tarot

Many people will have you believe that you have to be psychic to read Tarot. That is, to be a good Tarot reader, you have to have some sort of supernatural power that allows you to see into the future, know what people are thinking, or receive messages from the spirit world.

The truth is: You don’t have to be psychic to be a good Tarot reader. In fact, anyone can learn to read Tarot — including you. All you need to do is say yes to your intuition.

We are all intuitive beings. Every one of us. But many people have shut down their intuition, refusing to listen to their inner voice. They downplay the intuitive flashes they get and pass them off as a silly feeling that means nothing. Instead, say “yes” to those random, unexplainable messages you might receive that help you to navigate your life’s path. Say “yes” to going with your heart, not just your head.

Myth 2: Tarot will tell you your future

This one isn’t completely a myth, but it isn’t exactly the whole truth either… Many people see the Tarot as a fortunetelling tool. And, not only that, they believe that whatever the Tarot says will happen in the future, will happen, no matter what. Some people are so afraid of having their cards read because they worry that if they do, something bad will happen as a result.

The truth is: Tarot can tell you about not just your future, but also your past and your present. Understanding the past helps you discover the key lessons you’ve learned along your path so that you can make better decisions in the future. And understanding the present helps you discover what’s happening for you right now.

The future is not set in stone. Yes, the Tarot can predict the future — but “predict” is the key word here. It means that the Tarot can show you where you are headed based on where you are now. Don’t like where you’re headed? Then you can make changes right now to reshape your future! It all comes down to your free will and your ability to make choices.

Long story short: Tarot helps you understand your past and present to enable you to make good, positive choices that will shape your future. The future is in your hands and it’s yours to create.

Myth 3: Tarot is mysterious and complex

Look up “Tarot reader” on the internet and you’ll be met with images of mysterious-looking women in bohemian clothes, peering into a crystal ball, foretelling the future. This is not an accurate representation of what a Tarot reader is really like!

The truth is: People from ALL walks of life read Tarot — office workers, teachers, coaches, therapists, lawyers, executives, nurses — you name it. Just ordinary, normal people who have learned how to use the Tarot cards to connect with their intuition and navigate life’s challenges.

Tarot doesn’t have to be mysterious and complex. Tarot can be simple, fun and easy to learn. Anyone can do it, including you!

Tarot 101: The 3 Steps of a Tarot Reading

Tarot 101: The 3 Steps of a Tarot Reading

Learn Tarot the easy way in three simple steps

Brigit Esselmont

Here, you’ll get a quick crash course in Tarot, learning what the Tarot is and how it works.

What Is Tarot?

Ultimately, the Tarot is a deck of 78 cards that are enriched with images and symbols that help you connect with your intuition to make better, more spiritually-grounded decisions in your life. Many people turn to Tarot cards to help them understand and move forward in their relationships, career, finances, personal development, and major life changes.

The Tarot can also be used to help you understand your past, present, or future. It doesn’t tell you exactly what will happen — like the date when you’ll meet your future husband, or the first letter of your unborn baby’s name — but it does give you some insight into where you may be headed if you continue on your current path. It also gives you the space to make powerful and positive changes now so you can manifest your goals and your dreams in the future. What this means is that the future is indeed in your hands!

Every Tarot deck is typically made up of 78 cards, each with its own unique picture, symbolism, and meaning. While there are commonly agreed meanings for each card, it’s also very powerful to discover your own meanings of the cards as you connect intimately and intuitively with their images and symbols. Creating this kind of personal connection with the Tarot cards is where the magic happens, and what makes reading Tarot so special.

How does a Tarot reading work?

Ultimately, a Tarot reading boils down to a 3-step process:

Step 1: Create your question.

  • How can I find love this year?
  • Where is my career heading, and how can I make the most of my talents?

Step 2: Shuffle and lay out the cards.

As you’re shuffling, make sure you’re concentrating on your question to channel your energy into the reading and layout of the cards. Then when you feel ready, lay out the cards for your reading.

Step 3: Interpret the cards and answer your question.

This is the fun part! Go through each card and interpret what it means for you. Also, look at the reading as a whole and see what important messages and answers come through for you in the reading.

Of course, there’s a little more to a Tarot reading than these three simple steps, but if you’re just starting out, follow these three steps and you’ll be reading Tarot in no time! While some people prefer to have their Tarot cards read by professional Tarot readers, learning to read Tarot for yourself is like having the universe on speed dial! It’s such a gift to yourself to connect deeply with your intuition and have the Tarot cards as your spiritual guide.
