To celebrate International Tarot day (8th July 2018), let’s take a card and zoom in to find as much as we can about the card.
Your assignment if you choose to take the challenge will be to do the following:
Possible meaning of the card,
Mythology or folktales attached to your assigned card (when possible),
Numerology connection (when possible, as the court cards have none),
Element traditionally associated with your card,
Astrological association (ruler, planet etc.),
Meaning of the symbolism found in the card,
Crystals associated with the card,
Herbs, flowers or essential oils connected to your card.
You don’t need to write a big essay, a few sentences will be enough evidence 😉
You may discover that once you start to write, more info will be channelled in the process and a few sentences will be more like a paragraph, it is cool too 🙂
Here an example with the 2 of swords.
If you want to investigate a card, please contact me on my Facebook page, so I can choose at random, a card for you to interrogate.
If you have a blog, please write up about your card and let me know so I will add your link to a blog I will write about the International Tarot day 🙂
If you do not have a blog, do not despair, you can send me your research. I will include it in a blog with a credit to your website if you have one.
If you are not too sure about having your research published, but just want to share what you have done, please go to Tarot and kitties page on FB and send me a private message.
Studying cards like you are using a magnifying glass is a great exercise to deepen your perception of the cards, particularly the ones you do not feel comfortable with.
Once a month, select at random, a card and do this exercise. Sure, it can take time and effort to investigate a card, to go beyond keywords, but the reward will be a deep understanding of the Tarot 🙂
Have fun and let’s celebrate the beautiful tool that the Tarot is for self-development and spirituality.
