Hexagram 61

Chung Fu / Inner Truth

The gentle Wind ripples the Lake’s surface:
The Superior Person finds common ground between points of contention, wearing away rigid perspectives that would lead to fatal error.

Pigs and fishes.
You may cross to the far shore.
Great fortune if you stay on course.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

The subject of this hexagram discovers a key to Tranquility by first gaining insight into his own nature, then turning that vision outward.
By resolving inner conflicts and being at peace with himself, he learns to gain insight into others.
In effect, he enters another, sees with the other’s eyes, listens with the other’s ears, feels with the other’s heart.
He then returns to his own center, with new perspective and understanding.

Numerology

From Kasamba.com – Numerology

Two

Harmony is your nickname. You thrive in relationships – with your romantic partner, family, friends, coworkers, or even the salespeople at stores! You talk to everyone, you are down to earth and people love your presence. You are the life of the party! But sometimes, maintaining the peace in a relationship is so important to you that you forget who you are and make sacrifices that aren’t reciprocated. Learn to stand your ground and put your foot down when necessary. In matters of business, 2 is a great number for successful partnerships. If your life path number is 2, or if the digits of a date adds up to the number 2, know that it’s the best energy to enter into business agreements and create projects through teamwork. 2 is a wonderful omen for signing peace agreements between countries, making up for past mistakes between lovers, and to make any past wrongs right.

Ioho

Grace, death, letting go, endings, rest, the beauty of decay

Tree: Yew (Taxus spp.)

Letter: Y

Ioho symbolizes the acceptance of enduring realities and legacies of the past. If you draw Ioho, look for the end of a phase or cycle. Ioho suggests you are handling or will handle the matter at hand with dignity and grace.

Modern culture has spent a great deal of time running away from the ideas of death and decay as natural, welcome processes. As a result, we have a society obsessed with launching our species into space for fear of extinction, a medical industry bent on extending life long after it has ceased to have any quality, and a fixation on youth that motivates the middle aged to undergo brutal, grisly procedures in order to look twenty. When we frame aging (not just of human beings) in a sensible way, we understand that getting old isn’t so terrible. People age and die. Technologies change. Weeks become years. Eras fade away. Letting go is for the best.

Ioho is about accepting limits gracefully. We cannot control much…

Druid Ogham

Click here for more information about Huath from A Druid Ogham

Huath

Barriers, toil, hard work, obstacles

Hawthorn (Crataegus spp.)

Letter: H

Huath indicates an obstacle or series of obstacles that must be overcome with no going around. This could mean learning a subject, for instance playing the piano, and the infamous 10,000 hours of practice any instrument requires to attain mastery.

Huath is a task that you must go through the long haul to make happen. For instance, Huath could be overcoming your own self-destructive behavior or getting over an obsession. It could also be starting the business of one’s dreams or mastering a field of study. Any way you slice it, there are no short cuts. The task at hand takes patience and immersion. You must look at the task from all sides, brainstorm it — Huath is the Spirit of Fire for a reason — and understand its limits. Forcing a route will simply not work. Huath is the idea that worthwhile goals often require personal sacrifice and perseverance through challenges. Look at the goal as no less than a test of your own character. Many lifetimes have brought you to this. Rise to the occasion. Be determined, even when the rest of life tries to distract you, deter you, and defeat your best efforts. The physical plane is designed to beat you down; that is this plane and it sucks. Too bad. Figure it out. Master yourself first, cast no blame, and learn to adapt to challenges.

Druid Ogham

For more information about Straif from Druid Ogham

Straif

Resilience through hardship, hardening off, discipline, sacrifice

Tree: Blackthorn/Sloe (Prunus spp.)

Letter: Z

When you get mad or hate something because it goes against your grain, you have choices. You can wallow in your anger and lash out foolishly, which effectively makes you act in sympathy with that which you despise. You can do nothing/go the pacifist route and try to repress your anger, which will cause it to build up and eat at you from the inside in the form of depression. Thirdly, you can use your anger as a starting point or what is called a thrust block from which to make yourself so completely different from what is causing you anger that you end up rising above it and beating it at its game. Strife can either drag you down or raise you up by making you more resilient, but it is all in how you choose to handle it.

When you draw Straif, there is an experience being put in your way that isn’t pleasant. This experience can be transformed into a learning tool if you can work it out. Straif is a battle you must fight and often a disruption in routine. Just as a sword must be subjected to multiple processes to become sharp, sparks are going to have to fly before you can forge your destiny. You may need to sacrifice in order to become a stronger, better human being.

By admitting (not repressing), analyzing, and dealing with your dark emotions instead of allowing them to call the shots, drawing Straif well-dignified points to the real possibility you’ve dodged a nasty bit of strife because you’ve already learned not to be fear’s or anger’s puppet.

FERTILITY, NEW LIFE

Meanings: The “x” marks represent the four main phases of the moon and so you can expect changes to happen within the next 28 days. This is a particularly feminine stone and often appears in response to questions about women’s issues. The Moon rune is a messenger. It is telling you to be aware that major changes are coming to your life. Consult the runes closest to it to determine whether those changes are negative or positive.

Koad

Grove, convergence, ecosystem, review, crossroads, harmony

Tree: Collection of various trees

Letter: Ch

Koad represents a point on the map of your life and cause to reflect on what got you there as well as where you are headed. Many factors conspired to bring you where you are today. An entire ecosystem exists in and around you that is as unique as a fingerprint. This ecosystem is neither entirely good nor entirely bad, which is why this Ogham and the rest of the Forfedha (Oir, Uilleand, Phagos, and Mor) are too complex to be read as well or ill-dignified. Koad is one particular harmony/dissonance at this point in your life. If your life is going well in some respects, this could mean a feeling of competence and capability or a feeling of love and being loved. If you are in a time of stress, Koad may represent the s**tstorm whirling around you. Or all of the above could be going on at once.
You are here to learn a certain set of unique lessons in this lifetime. There are many roads you can take any given day, and like one of those old Choose Your Own Adventure books, each road has its own outcome. Sometimes two seemingly different roads have the same outcome. Koad indicates a feeling of responsibility and ownership of your decisions, however, other factors you cannot control should be taken into account as well, such as family history, social norms, laws, and the era in which you dwell.

Many people do not realize that orchestral symphonies are major works that are frequently an hour in length. A symphony is an elaborate ABA form (think Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on steroids) with mini-breaks between three sections. If your life is a symphony, imagine Koad as one moment in one measure of a huge programmatic work of music. What harmony have you achieved? Are you in a slow or fast movement?

Numerology

The Numerology Meaning of the Number 9: GLOBAL AWARENESS

The 9 highlights a mathematical and philosophical observation that is unique and revealing. From a purely mathematical perspective, the 9 stands apart.

Here’s why:

When you multiply any number by 9, then add the resulting digits and reduce them to a single digit, it always becomes a 9. For example, 6 x 9 = 54, reduce 54 to a single digit by adding them together: 5 + 4 = 9. Similarly, 8 x 9 = 72, and 7 + 2 = 9. Or 23 x 9 = 207, 2 + 0 + 7 = 9, and so forth.

There is nothing coincidental about this peculiarity.

Try it. Any number, no matter how large, multiplied by 9 reduces to 9. From a numerological perspective, the 9 simply takes over, like the infamous body snatchers. Any number that was initially increased by a factor of 9 loses its own identity and instead takes on the characteristics of the 9.

No other number has that quality.

A different, but no less distinctive attribute of the 9 happens when you add it to any other number, then reduce that number to a single digit. In this case, it always comes back to itself as if nothing was added at all – it doesn’t change anything from the initial single digit value.

For example, 5 + 9 = 14, 1 + 4 = 5. Or 7 + 9 = 16, 1 + 6 = 7. 24 (which reduces to 6) + 9 = 33, 3 + 3 = 6. Again, have some fun, try it on a bunch of numbers.

When multiplying, the 9 takes over, but when adding, the 9 does nothing.

For a math junkie like myself, this is beauty. It symbolically touches the core of the magic that underlies this creation. But enough about math, let’s look at the personality of this unique number.

The highest of the cardinal numbers, the 9 is the most worldly and sophisticated of all.

The 9 has similarities with the 6 – including its shape (turned upside down). However, where the 6 is a symbol of love and compassion directed to people close to them (friends, family, the local community), the 9 offers love and care to the world at large.

The 9, more than any other number, has global consciousness – a reservoir of giving with a generous downward spout.

The 9 lives in the world and understands the connection between all people. Individuals with this number are humanitarians who see no difference between their next-door neighbor and people from different cultures on the other side of the world. The 9 is the least judgmental of all numbers, the most tolerant and the most conscious.

The 9 is overwhelmingly loving and empathetic.

People often regard those with a strong 9 as majestic, graceful, and elevated, but closely connected with the rest of humankind. At the same time, they can be hard to reach, seem aloof, and tend to float above the small-minded issues that can be upsetting to others. People either love or loathe 9 individuals, but find it difficult to deny the respect they demand. 9s have impeccable taste, are talented, creative, and usually quite eloquent when they express themselves.

The 9 is called the “Mother Theresa” number because it doesn’t hesitate to rectify abuse. More importantly, it does not seek credit for giving assistance. Just as the number 9 added to another number does not force its way into the sum (the sum stays the same) – 9 individuals never force themselves upon others when trying to help.

When circumstances require, 9s can be a powerful force, strong enough to take over and bend others to their will (just as the number 9 does when used to multiply any other number, where it takes control). However, the 9 is not a leader in the same way the 1 and the 8 are; its influence comes from the higher realms of philosophy and justice. A 9 does not use force or cunning, they just change your mind!

Although they are generally selfless, a 9 is often prosperous. This contradiction helps illustrate the true nature of the 9. Where an 8 becomes financially successful by focusing on the potential reward from an undertaking, 9s earn financial reward by utterly ignoring the monetary potential of an endeavor, the exact opposite of the 8.

As for matters of the heart, the 9 is not particularly romantic.

The 9 can be a difficult romantic partner, not only because they are demanding, but because you never know to what extent you’ve managed to reach them emotionally. 9s tend to hide their hearts, so even after knowing them for many years, the connection can still seem a bit distant.

They are loyal friends but will not allow themselves to become vulnerable. The most telling attribute of the 9 is the always subtle, difficult to pinpoint feeling there is more to them than meets the eye. They carry depth and intuition, and are at all times aware of their surroundings, like a person with over-developed peripheral vision.

As with any number, the 9 has a dark side.

A 9 can be condescending, arrogant, cold, and apathetic towards the suffering of others. When the 9 shows its dark side, it is egotistic, cruel, immoral, and completely untouchable. Unfortunately, it is easy for a 9 to fall into the dark side. For example, if they perceive themselves to be the victim of an injustice, they can turn vindictive, unforgiving, and malicious.

When the 9 appears as a cycle, it often denotes a finality, the completion of an era.

The 9 as a cycle is frequently seen as an indicator of death. This is simplistic and incorrect. When you are in the 9th period of a cycle (such as the 9th year of a 9-year cycle), it suggests you are in the final stages of that period or endeavor. It’s a time to empty your bucket and prepare for change, let go of the past, wrap up loose ends, and make way for new opportunities.

In Personal Year cycles, the 9 is always followed by the 1; every time you go through that two-year phase (from one year to the next) you go through a transformation of some kind. Look at any period in your life when you went through a 9 Personal Year followed by a 1 Personal Year and you will find this to be true. Then, look at your Essence and Transit cycles to learn what the fundamental nature of that transformation was.

Angel Number

From Informationseries.com – Click here for more information on Angel Number 114

The numbers that you often see in your daily life are called angel numbers. Angel numbers are a special combination of numbers and a message from the universe and angels.

Have you ever felt the vibrations inherent in numbers?

This time, we will introduce the meaning of angel number 114 and how to interpret it in love, work, marriage, and relationships.

What does the angel number 114 mean?

Angel number 114 states that “in order for you to achieve your true goals and ideals, you need spiritual self-development and concrete action.”

The angels advise that if you follow your plans and processes steadily, you can achieve material success.

The number 1 in angel number 114 symbolizes independence, leadership, spontaneity, the beginning of things, masculinity, achievement, success, and more. The master number 11, which is a combination of these numbers, is a mysterious number with intuition, high sensitivity, insight, clarity, and inspiration. In addition, the number 4 means accuracy, responsibility, patience, organization, effort, etc., and has the property of creating a solid framework in an empty space.

With all this in mind, Angel Number 114 shows that spiritual maturity and realistic success are on the same line. The angels advise that your desires can be fulfilled by approaching both mentally and physically.

Also, 6 (1 + 1 + 4 = 6), which is the sum of all three digits, also contains some messages. In addition to symbolizing beauty and harmony, 6 is a number that has idealism, perfectionism, empathy, compassion, and so on.

The combination of angel number 114 tells you that your steady efforts will be rewarded and lead to future outcomes and ideals.

Important message of angel number 114

Be positive in every aspect of your life and keep your motivation and image high. The number 4 is also a sign that the guardian angels are…

Druid Ogham

From Druid Ogham- For more information about Ruis

Ruis

Regret, pride, shame, embarrassment, learning from experience, resolution

Tree: Elder (Sambucus spp.)

Letter: R

Shame isn’t all bad and does not deserve a uniformly awful reputation. Without shame and the fear of being shamed, every human child would be demonically bratty. Shame is a limit that informs us to keep our own ego in check. It is often about considering others. Having shame about one’s own past behavior is motivation to avoid shameful behaviors such as cheating and stealing.

Shame is an emotion that demands confrontation. All too often, people run away from what shames them, attempt to excuse themselves from wrongful or immoral behavior because they’re too cowardly to face what they have done or to admit their responsibility in causing their own misfortunes or the misfortune of others. Ruis indicates a willingness to face one’s own shame and to do with shame what it was meant for, and that is to use shame of the past to build oneself into a better person for the present and future. Ashamed of something you did? How can you make yourself into the type of person who would never even think of doing something like that? Overcome being the type of person who would engage in the shameful behavior and you become the master of it; you won’t have the remotest chance of repeating such a mistake. Did you become embarrassed because you did something you now understand to be greedy? Then learn to balance thriftiness with generosity. Adjust to the circumstance rather than overreacting to it. Are you ashamed about cheating on a boyfriend/girlfriend or spouse? Become a person who would never cheat on your boyfriend/girlfriend or spouse regardless of conditions, which could mean an assortment of outcomes: sticking to a resolution of no cheating and staying together, admitting one’s sexual preferences and going with the flow, changing the person you are with, or being single for a long time.

Because humans tend to remember negative experiences more easily than positive ones, it’s important when you draw Ruis to acknowledge the things you are not ashamed of about yourself. For every bad or shameful thing you’ve done, remember there are a thousand shameful things you avoided. Maybe it is time to appreciate the places you could have gone horribly wrong and did not.

Questions when you draw Ruis: …

Phagos

Teaching, education, mastery, virtuosity, legacy

Tree: Beech (Fagus spp.)

Letter: Ph or F

Phagos is a reminder of the mental discipline it takes in the process of acquiring knowledge. When you get to the point of knowing a subject so well, you can teach it effortlessly, then you have mastered the subject on the mental plane, which reverberates through the other planes. Saturated knowledge is knowing a thing inside and out. Those who believe in reincarnation believe this is the kind of knowledge that does not go away when you shed one mortal body for the next one: for instance, a skilled midwife will stand a good chance of coming back as a competent ob/gyn who stumbles upon their talent in a seemingly random way. Or a lute player may be reborn and pick up the guitar at age twelve and learn it faster than any other kid in their class because of knowledge picked up in past lifetimes.

Numerology

From Lasagna.com

Six

If your life path number is 6, you are someone who thinks, speaks and acts from the heart. You are sincere, loving, warm and affectionate. It would serve you to find a job where you can bring and apply these wonderful qualities, such as a kindergarten teacher, pediatrician, social worker, or a therapist. You are made for long-term relationships and family life. Shallow pursuits and one-night stands aren’t your thing. When you touch someone, it’s real. But because you are too focused on the relational aspects of your life, you may end up bringing those people who don’t care as much as you do, into your life. If the digits of a date add up to number 6, it’s a wonderful time to create love! Work on a universal theme, help poor communities in distant places or the homeless on your block. It’s the best time to be there for other people.

Healing, cleaning, cleansing, catharsis, paring down

Tree: Broom (Cytisus spp.)

Letter: Ng

Like when a fever breaks, broom signifies the end of a struggle and the subsequent ability to clear out the junk to make way for a newer, more positive approach. Walking a way from a bad habit or situation can be painful, but not necessarily so. It may also be gradual. Overall, Ngetal is the importance of getting rid of old junk and baggage (this could be actual clutter or psychological baggage, which of course are intimately linked) or it could mean the resolution of action against someone who has wronged you, whether it is forgiveness or cutting and clearing them out of your life. If it is forgiveness, Ngetal suggests it is coming from a genuine place of inner peace. Apologizing does not necessarily make you an apologist.

There is a process of analysis and reflection that eventually distances anger and enables you to feel it without being puppeted by it. Letting go of attachments that aren’t healthy, for instance, an obsession with being liked for the way you look, will help you develop in ways that fulfill your purpose in this life. Ngetal could signify you are beginning to release anxieties about what you have no control over, which will go a long way in healing your spirit.

Anglo-Saxon and Frisian Rune

From The Rune Site – Anglo-Saxon and Frisian Runes

The reason I have combined the Frisian and Anglo-Saxon rune sets together are due to their close relation to each other. Originally the Frisian set was created by expanding the Elder Futhark set by four runes (the first four listed below – Ac, Os, Yr and Ior). Then later one new rune, Ear, was added to form the Anglo-Saxon rune set sometimes called the Anglo-Saxon Futhork.

It should also be noted that the Elder Futhark rune Ansuz was renamed Aesc for these sets.

Ac

Sound: “a” as in “sat”
Stands for: Oak Tree
Casting meaning: This rune symbolizes great potential power and is a rune of great usefulness. Ac channels the power of strong, continuous growth from small beginnings to a powerful and mighty climax.

The Crossed Spears

Keywords: Arguments, negativity.

Meanings: The Crossed Spears is a rune that signifies arguments and negative events. Often this can be of an upsetting nature, rather like the Tower card in the tarot. It is not all bad though. If it is near to a positive rune it may indicate the end of a quarrel and healing. Especially if it lies near the Rings. This rune could mean a promotion at work, or a fast recovery if you’re ill.

Teaching and inspiring others to master a subject is the physical manifestation of knowledge, or in old terminology, the Word made flesh. Beech tree bark makes a primitive form of paper. Phagos implies the written word and the transmission of knowledge through our uniquely human invention: writing.

Teachers and teaching are often undervalued in the modern West, with denigrations such as “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach,” being thrown about by the arrogant who have never been able to translate their mental skill in a way that consistently inspires others to learn. Bad teachers abound, and they can be bad for any number or reasons: some choose teaching when they have no passion for it, some want the glory of being labeled a teacher. Everybody knows that a good teacher is worth their weight in gold when it comes to the transmission of knowledge, and that a bad teacher is hardly worth the powder to blow them to hell, and often what a teacher is paid has nothing to do with what they’re worth. If you have a good teacher, let them know. Learn all you can while you are able to do so with the best teachers you can find (we live in the age of the internet, and a huge number of great teachers “live” there). Concentrate on a small number of subjects until you gain complete mastery, because you will take that knowledge with you long after your current flesh body dies. If you know a subject well enough to teach it, this Ogham is encouraging you to spread the wealth of your knowledge with other humans in a direct and potentially physical way such as writing.

What is the Linestrider Tarot Deck?

From TarotX.net – For more information on the Linestrider Tarot Deck

I. Introduction and review Linestrider Tarot Deck

The Linestrider Tarot, illustrated by Siolo Thompson and released by Llewellyn Publications, is a 78-card deck of travelers between two worlds – whose lives span both worlds, ideas, mental states, or reality.

This deck of cards refers to that concept, combined with the traditional Rider-Waite Smith standard (RWS), creating delicate, minimal, and appealing cards. In folk, there is a margin that separates the visible world from the invisible world on many levels, and Linestriders are magical people who live those lives or gather knowledge from both sides of the line or the edge. Linestriders tour through the routes that separate ideas, discipline, mental state, world, and reality.

With the stable basis of the Rider Waite-Smith Tarot deck, the Linestrider Tarot both expands and reduces the look of the classic Pamela Coleman Smith deck. Human figures appear in only half of this deck while the rest are animals, fulfilling the roles commonly performed by humans in many standard RWS decks. With an unusual sensuality and sensitivity, artist Siolo Thompson described humans as mysterious and dreamy, and animals are wise and intelligent creatures.

This is a 78-card tradition-oriented Tarot deck, with 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 fully illustrated Minor Arcana cards. The Major cards remain the old title and the four Minor suits are Wands, Swords, Cups, and Pentacles. Court cards include Page, Knight, Queen, and King as usual.

The card size is 7 x 12 cm [2.8 x 4.7 inch] – the standard size of a regular Tarot deck. The deck weight is well-made and hand-fitted. The card is quite heavy-handed but flexible, has a smooth edge and a light shade. Linestrider Tarot deck has quite meticulous images, delicate and elegant colors. The work is a bizarre mix of minimalism in many respects such as watercolor, comic style, subtle pencil brush strokes; realism, and symbolism.

The image on the card has an open and blank background; close-up images seem to be simple with a layer of watercolor and pencil that create clever symbols that are consistent with the lower stimulus-center-space-threshold image.

Stag

Stag symbolism and meanings include stamina, virility, grace, instincts, maturity, regeneration, and spiritual enlightenment. The stag – sometimes referred to as hart – is exalted among other deer. He is mature and experienced, having endured life’s challenges, and he has a massive crown of antlers to show for it. Because stags are native to every continent, except Australia and Antarctica, they are subjects in the mythology and folklore of many ancient cultures. In addition, the stag spirit animal appears in the spiritual belief systems of cultures around the world.

 Straif

Resilience through hardship, hardening off, discipline, sacrifice

Tree: Blackthorn/Sloe (Prunus spp.)

Letter: Z

When you get mad or hate something because it goes against your grain, you have choices. You can wallow in your anger and lash out foolishly, which effectively makes you act in sympathy with that which you despise. You can do nothing/go the pacifist route and try to repress your anger, which will cause it to build up and eat at you from the inside in the form of depression. Thirdly, you can use your anger as a starting point or what is called a thrust block from which to make yourself so completely different from what is causing you anger that you end up rising above it and beating it at its game. Strife can either drag you down or raise you up by making you more resilient, but it is all in how you choose to handle it.

When you draw Straif, there is an experience being put in your way that isn’t pleasant. This experience can be transformed into a learning tool if you can work it out. Straif is a battle you must fight and often a disruption in routine. Just as a sword must be subjected to multiple processes to become sharp, sparks are going to have to fly before you can forge your destiny. You may need to sacrifice in order to become a stronger, better human being.

By admitting (not repressing), analyzing, and dealing with your dark emotions instead of allowing them to call the shots, drawing Straif well-dignified points to the real possibility you’ve dodged a nasty bit of strife because you’ve already learned not to be fear’s or anger’s puppet.

The Empress Tarot card is a true Earth Mother, also known as the Anima, the Feminine Principle, Demeter, Freyja, and the Goddess of Reproduction. It ruled by Venus – the planet of love, creativity, birth, art, harmony, luxury, beauty, and love.

She is a perfect woman with blonde hair and her emanating gentle aroma. The crown star on her head showing her relationship with the mysterious kingdom of angels and fairies. On the card, she wore a pomegranate-patterned gown symbolizing birth and sat on a cushion decorated with luxurious, soft lines with red velvet material with the symbol of the Goddess Venus.

Her surrounding area is a beautiful and lush forest with a stream flowing through expressing the deep emotional connection among her, Mother Earth, and life. She feels peace from the trees, water, and process of being young again by the energy of nature. There was the golden spring crop in front of her, reflecting the affluence from the harvest season.

Tinne

Defense, courage, decisiveness, action that must be taken, confrontation

Tree: Holly (Ilex spp.)

Letter: T

Decisive action, victory. Setting hard limits. Rising above petty disputes and thereby overcoming them. Understanding the opposing force and reacting only when the time is right: the art of war. We are always at war with outside forces, whether it is advertisers trying to worm their way inside our heads with television and media or others trying to impose their belief systems on us out of insecurity and the fact misery loves company. Tinne is security without overconfidence. Know yourself an defend your boundaries.

Tinne indicates that you have to take a defensive position or perhaps an entire defense strategy. For those of us who hate confrontation, Tinne presents a familiar dread of being cornered. We are given no choice but to fight. For instance, you may be called upon to defend a defenseless person, perhaps with words or stronger stuff. Perhaps you are trying to attain a situation or a thing you want — a graduation, severance from a toxic individual or group, the completion of a project — and you have to fight against the tide to make it happen. Tinne can pop up in situations where other people act completely indecently and you are forced into either addressing it with them or taking action to avoid them.

Seeing Tinne as all negative is oversimplifying it. Tinne is honest. It tells you that you may have a confrontation and in doing so, you will have to face your own fears of losing, being powerless, or pissing somebody off.

Tinne says drawing limits is important: nobody is entitled to you or your time except maybe the children you chose to be parents to and your companion animals. Everybody else will just have to wait.

How To Shuffle Tarot Cards In 4 Ways?

General note for the reader and the querent

How to shuffle Tarot cards in 4 ways

Note:

General note for the reader and the querent

In this step, while thinking about the question, you or the querent will shuffle Tarot cards in any way you want. The most important thing in this step is the focus of the one who shuffles (either the querent or the reader, depending on the reader’s own rules), the reader will guide how many times and how to shuffle the cards.

Therefore, do not be surprised when there are some people who will ask you to shuffle 100 times, the deck is only shuffled by the reader, the querent can only draw cards or just swap cards while thinking about the matter they are asking. All of the instructions above are only intended to help the querent and reader to focus on the questions and cards.

After having shuffled Tarot cards and the querent’s mentality has stabilized, we will begin to spread cards. Each Tarot spread will have a different arrangement and corresponding specific meaning, therefore, the reader needs to guide the querent each position of the card. The reader can talk about the kind of spread that will be used and guide the querent to pick up each card and place it in a certain position after shuffling.

The thing that many beginners usually wonder is how to set up rules for the upright/reversed cards and whether is it necessary to use them or not? How many times to shuffle tarot cards? The shortest answer is to depend on your own convention with the deck. You can use the card either in one direction or both in the upright/reverse.

If you read Tarot cards in the upright direction only, you just need to shuffle them in the usual way. If you use the reversed direction, you should refer to a few ways of shuffling so that both the upright and reversed cards can appear in one Tarot spread. The easiest way is to cut the deck into a number of different piles and put each pile in an upright/reversed order alternately, then shuffle them up.

In the traditional way, the querent will shuffle cards before giving readers to spread and solve them. However, this is not an immutable rule, the reader can also shuffle the cards before or after the querent’s turn to increase their focus on the Tarot spread.

Regarding how to set up rules for upright/reversed cards on one spread, you can use one of the followings flexibly:

  • The first way: The querent will be the mark, the upright/reversed Tarot cards will be in the same direction as the querent, thus, the upright card is downstream with the querent, the reversed card is in the opposite direction to the querent.
  • The second way: The reader will be the mark, the upright/reversed cards will be in the reader’s direction. However, this method is not recommended, the querent will have the feeling that the matter appeared on the spread is the reader’s rather than theirs, which will lessen the interaction between the two.
