Returning to Work

April 30, 2011 § Leave a comment

A new mother (A) has some apprehension about returning to work. She says it’s like a fresh start, but she has some concerns. Reading done the evening of Tuesday, April 26, 2011 with Shadowscapes Tarot.

Spread: Walk in the Woods

1. Stepping out into the crisp Autumn air, you go for a walk in the woods. This is where you are starting from.

2. As you walk down this path, you hear a twig cracking in the brush. These are the fears you will encounter.

3. So you wrap your shawl tightly around you, and grasp it tightly as you quicken your pace. This is that which you will find comfort in.

4. Off in the distance you see a deer with it’s fawn crossing appearing in your path. This is what you don’t expect.

5. A wise owl swoops above your head and lands on a far up branch. This is what you will learn along this path.

6. As you reach the end of your journey, you ponder all that has happened and what has resulted. This is the outcome of your journey.

Little Miss J

April 27, 2011 § 2 Comments

The querent asked me to do a Tarot reading for her newborn baby, who I will refer to as Little Miss J in this entry. I found this spread through a Google search and adapted the shape of it just a bit to what made the most sense to me. Reading done the morning of Tuesday, April 26, 2011 with Shadowscapes Tarot.

The Spread:

The parents’ gifts to the child surround her spread (cards 1 and 2). She also receives a main source of support from the world around her (card 3), and will be aided by her own best strength (card 4). She will need to overcome her biggest challenge (5) in order to fulfill her life’s purpose.

Reading for K: Next 9 months

December 25, 2008 § Leave a comment

Time: Thurs, Dec 25, ended around 9:30pm EST
Deck: Tarot of the Magical Forest
Querent: K
Spread: designed for this reading

Topic: the next 9 months, both overall/general and also specifically with boyfriend


Overall (1=next 3 months, 3=following 3 months, 5=following 3 months/summer)
1. Wheel of Fortune
3. Five of Cups RV
5. Knight of Pentacles

The Wheel of Fortune suggests some exciting new things heading in, specifically ones that will seem very “lucky”, like Lady Fortune smiling upon the situation, and less because of one’s personal investment or effort in the matter.  This could point to a visit to the States (querent is living abroad) and to see her boyfriend, and that visit going really well, or any number of good things happening while living abroad, or a combination: overall, things are looking lucky.

Two One-Card Readings for K

April 7, 2008 § 4 Comments

Deck: Goddess Tarot (same one we used previous)
Querent: friend (K)
Reading was done by myself after she specified the topics and asked for two one-card readings. I emailed her the responses, hence the links.

Topic: plans to go to Korea, in general
Card: Tradition (Juno)/High Priest/Hierophant Reversed
I’m interpreting this as you’re going about plans because you should, because something tells you this is the right course, when it might not be. Tradition, following, or looking to authority for answers is not the best course of action.
Standard interpretation
Interpretation of reversed

Topic: K’s April
Card: King of Staves/Wands
Take initiative, make your own path of ambition and own it.
Standard Interpretation

Reading for K

October 30, 2007 § Leave a comment

Deck: Goddess Tarot
Date: 9/24/07 Monday
Time: evening
Spread: for each question/category: past/present/before upcoming travel plans/while traveling
Querent: K
Questions/Topics: 1) K & current romantic interest; 2) travel and its effect on social life & self; 3) career aspirations

1) Querent and Romantic Interest
traveling: 3 of Pents-RV / before travel:?? / present: Sun-RV / past: 6 of Wands
This is where my laziness around immediate notetaking (or lack thereof) really bit me in the ass. My card for “before traveling” timeline for querent’s current romantic interest (which was her major concern in this spread) was not noted, just a blank on my sketch of the spread. Damn.
