Nowadays, almost everyone you know possesses a tarot deck and regularly receives readings, so it’s no longer only for the esoteric. Tarot has evolved over time into an intuitive art that may assist you in planning for both the best and worst scenarios. Tarot cards are filled with symbolism, but you might not be aware of how closely it is related to astrology.
What distinguishes a horoscope from a tarot reading?
“While astrology offers more general predictions, tarot cards take a highly individualized approach to making predictions. Numerous people at once may be affected by astrological predictions. Tarot allows you to delve deeply and intricately into any subject you are interested in, whereas astrology does not. That’s not to suggest you can’t receive a comprehensive prognosis; astrology can provide one, but it requires complex computations of your birth chart. It is regrettable that so few astrologers today go into great detail in order to provide an accurate prognosis.”
What does astrology’s tarot reading entail?
Tarot card reading is a type of cartomancy in which practitioners are said to be able to predict the past, present, or future by using tarot cards. They create a question first, then deal out cards to answer it. There are 78 cards in a conventional tarot deck, which can be divided into the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana. You can use any card system with suits associated with distinguishable elements, such playing cards with a French suit (e.g., air, earth, fire, water).
What are the foundations for tarot cards?
The Venetian or Piedmontese tarot served as the inspiration for the typical modern tarot deck. The major arcana, which contains 22 cards and is also known as the trumps, and the minor arcana, which has 56 cards, make up the 78 cards that make up this deck. Moon, card number 18 in the major arcana.
What is reading a cartomancer?
Using a deck of cards, cartomancy is a form of divination or fortune-telling. Soon after playing cards were originally introduced to Europe in the 14th century, various forms of cartomancy started to emerge. Cartomancers, card readers, or just readers are common names for people who practice cartomancy.
In the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, the most common method of giving fortune-telling card readings was cartomancy using regular playing cards. Jokers and even the blank card that may be found in many packed decks are frequently added to the conventional 52-card deck. Although the 52-card deck can also be used, the 32-card piquet stripped deck is more frequently used in cartomantic readings in France. (A 52-card deck can be converted into a piquet deck by eliminating all of the 2s through 6s. The remaining cards are all 7s through 10s, face cards, and aces.)
Tarot card reading is typically the most prevalent type of cartomancy in English-speaking nations. In these places, tarot cards are virtually always employed for this reason.
Ayurvedic astrology what is it?
The conventional Hindu astrology and astronomy system is known as Vedic astrology. Your study of Ayurveda and yoga can benefit from learning about this system. The five elements, which may be found in both the physical world and the human body, are the cornerstone of Vedic astrology, also known as Hindu or Jyotish astrology. Ether, air, fire, water, and earth are the five elements. The existence of space gives way to wind, which blows and creates fire. Fire burns so hot that it melts, causing water to flow and harden into earth. Your dosha is made up of the harmony of the components that are present in your natural state of being (constitution).
There are mainly two aspects in each dosha. Ether and air correspond to the Vata dosha, fire and water to the Pitta dosha, and water and earth to the Kapha dosha. The majority of people combine elements of all three doshas in varying amounts rather than having all the traits of any one dosha. Because of the abundance of activities in our lifestyles that upset the natural balance of our constitution, the majority of westerners have a Vata imbalance.
To diagnose a patient’s dosha, ayurvedic practitioners use pulse and tongue reading. Chart readings are used by Vedic astrologers to arrive at the same conclusion. I had the pleasure of speaking with Vedic Astrologer Richelle Jarrell, a student in our current Certificate program, to learn more.
Since 1996, Richelle Jarrell has been imparting the wisdom of Vedic Astrology, Ayurveda, and Yoga philosophy in her Reiki classes. Her research focuses on sign compatibility as well as other vital astrological elements for thriving relationships, such as how your Ayurvedic body type affects both your relationships and your health.
Are periods appropriate for tarot reading?
You would expect that by the year 2020, society will have overcome long-standing taboos and become more educated. In offices, hospitals, schools, and colleges, we surveyed a number of young ladies. But little appears to have changed. These are some things that women are still told today.
1. If you’re a woman and angry, you must be having a period.
2. If you’re a woman in pain, you must be having your period.
3. If you’re a woman and you’re walking funny, you must be having a period.
4. Even at home, while you’re on your period, you should have a separate room, dishes, and restrictions.
5. Consuming cold food or beverages can stop your flow.
6. You are unable to exercise, visit a place of worship, or swim when you are menstruating.
7. Avoid cooking, hair-washing, and handling dairy products or pickles when you’re menstruating.
8. Women often utilize the excuse of PMS to escape uncomfortable circumstances.
9. Tarot readings are not permitted during times.
10. Women are more susceptible to supernatural beings and are more easily possessed during their periods.
11. Periods for women are voluntary and controllable. Because they enjoy the drama and the days off, they have them every month.
We’re sure you’ve found many of them to be gratingly familiar if you’re a woman. But if, like us, you’ve rolled your eyes till you thought they might pop out of your head, pause and consider why.
Why do we still lack a fundamental understanding of how a woman’s body works physiologically in this day of rapid scientific advancement, a wealth of data, and the Internet? Modern, educated women may not wish to have children or be held captive by these misconceptions and lies about menstruation. However, the majority are helpless against ignorance, a lack of appropriate education, and ignorance.
It all boils down to what people were taught as children when it comes to how our friends, coworkers, family members, and neighbors believe. Don’t you think we would be having a different kind of discourse today, whether you live in a city, a small town, or a countryside, if having periods were accepted as normal rather than taboo?
The truth that there is nothing “impure about menstruation” does not empower young women. There has never been a greater pressing need for this topic’s education and understanding across cultural and economic boundaries. The changes in their bodies and how to handle them should be anticipated by young females. Girls can continue in school and aid working adult women, especially in more disadvantaged places, to keep gainfully occupied throughout the year by providing education, sanitary napkins, and sufficient water and bathroom facilities.
However, change won’t happen until there is a movement that holds the view that all women’s lives can be improved with a single switch. Instead of outdated misconceptions with no basis in reality, girls and women of all ages need to start hearing new messages. Two-thirds of young girls in smaller towns and villages frequently don’t understand what’s happening to them when they first encounter periods, whereas women in cities have advanced to using sanitary pads, tampons, or menstrual cups. When and how should they be informed?
when they are young and during academic coursework. Discussions regarding periods need to sound more like this while they are still in school and developing:
We should be more cognizant of our flow, menstrual patterns, and the potential for infections during our periods. However, it doesn’t weaken you.
No more than you would be if you bought yourself soap or toothpaste, purchasing sanitary napkins shouldn’t make you feel humiliated.
It’s not necessary to hide and discard used sanitary towels while no one is looking.
Contrary to women who use filthy wads of cotton or rags, using sanitary napkins can reduce your risk of developing cervical cancer.
Cheaper does not always equate to better. Look for goods and businesses that are making an effort to demonstrate their dedication to timely menstrual hygiene education (especially post COVID).
Whisper has been leading the effort for the past three decades, teaching 45 lakh girls in 40,000+ schools about menstrual health and giving away free sanitary pads. Not only have they taken on period taboos head-on, but they have also educated and empowered women to become change agents at the most fundamental levels and earn a living by selling sanitary products. This ought to be the legacy we leave for future female generations. We need to picture a society in which periods are not taboo and where people aren’t scared to talk about them, share information, and work to make the world a better and safer place for all.
Can you interpret Tarot cards on your own?
It’s normal to be a little clumsy when you first start practicing the tarot. Tarot study is similar to learning a new languageit takes time to become proficient. But what happens if you no longer require the booklet and have intimate familiarity with the deck? Are you able to read yourself? No, except in a few rare cases. Simply put, it’s a horrible idea.
You see, the majority of us turn to astrology or tarot when we’re looking for clarity amid a period of ambiguity. Tarot card interpretation is subject to our consciousness, as opposed to astrology, which is extraordinarily technical. Working with your personal interpretation of the cards, you are not constrained by short- and long-term cycles like the planets’ orbits. It might be tricky to go beyond your current circumstances while utilizing the tarot to better understand a trying scenario. Even if all the cards are spread out in front of you, putting them together requires such a broad perspective that it is all but impossible to fully understand the meaning of each card. Basically, any biases you already have will always be reflected in your tarot reading!
Questions you don’t really want answered
Even though it might seem apparent, it’s advisable to refrain from asking the tarot cards questions that you aren’t prepared to hear the answers to. That’s because answers to these questions can reveal information you’re just not quite ready to hear.
“Tarot can definitely come off as offensive if you’re not willing to hear the truth or consider an opposing point of view. Tarot reading Nicole Fortunaso
According to tarot reader and life coach Nicole Fortunaso, “tarot may truly come out as offensive if you are not willing to hear the truth of the problem or look at an alternate viewpoint.” She advises considering why you’re responding the way you are in order to reflect on the best way to address the underlying cause if you ask the question and are unsatisfied with the response.
What tarot card has the most influence?
The Fool is typically seen as a card from the Major Arcana when performing a tarot reading. Contrary to popular belief, the Fool does not fall under either category in tarot card games. Instead, the Fool serves a function that is distinct from both the simple suit cards and the trump cards. As a result, the Fool has no number assigned to it in the majority of tarot decks that were initially created for playing games. Although Waite assigns the Fool the number 0, in his book, the Fool is discussed between Judgment (number 20) and The World (number 21). The Tarocco Piemontese is the only traditional game deck that numbers the Fool 0. Since the 1930s, the corner index for the Fool in Tarot Nouveau decks has frequently been a black inverted mullet. The Fool is one of the most expensive cards in practically all tarot games.
When was your birth?
By calculating your birth card, you can greatly personalize your tarot readings and get guidance on your life’s path.
The Major Arcana card that corresponds to the sum of all the digits in your birthdate is your birth card, which is also referred to as your “life path card.” This card can be used in a number of ways to enhance your tarot practice, such as a significator (a card specifically chosen to represent you or the subject of your reading); a card to explain your daily card; or a focus for meditation.
To discover your soul’s function, you might also consider how you already do or could do the positive traits of the Major Arcana card.
