I’m starting this blog series in an attempt to find my way to “chill” because yo gorl has almost no chill – only now instead of that being a personality trait it’s causing hormonal fluctuations that my body doesn’t know how to process anymore which then leads to me passing out … which is no bueno. I consider myself agnostic because I’m not sure there is/are a god/s, but I’m not going to tell you they can’t possibly exist either. I do however enjoy the idea of trying out different forms of meditation to see if any of them will work for me, which brings me to my latest adventure – using tarot cards as a point of focus for meditation. Let’s see what cards I pull today, shall we?
My therapist literally prescribed me tarot as homework this week. Have I been doing my homework? Pshhhhhh, no. Apparently I’m still very much on the “can’t even” train. Let me off of this thing.
Nine – Knowledge
I’m going to say I pulled this card in the present position because I was thinking about what I would learn today from meditating on a card – which indicated a time of new study and learning. It’s rather funny because I’ve been using tarot as a form of learning more about myself and how to be more aware while also being less judgmental, to just acknowledge things as they are without weighing my emotions as good or bad.
The other thing this card indicates is to try to have an open mind while collecting knowledge and to seek out sources one might typically not go to because of inherit biases. I guess in a way I’m simultaneously doing that already through my practice of tarot and examining different forms of witchcraft. I was raised as a prude who wasn’t allowed to explore different options because of my parents’ beliefs. Now that my life is somewhat stable in my adulthood I have the bandwidth to explore the “forbidden things” and am thoroughly enjoying it. I honestly don’t understand why a lot of Christians have an inherent fear of witchcraft, especially when from a witchcraft perspective one can simultaneously practice witchcraft and any form of religion. I’ve found my journey into witchcraft an extremely healing process…
This card was pulled from Ravynne Phelan’s Dreams of Gaia Tarot set which comes with its own guide book since it’s a bit of a cross between a standard and oracle deck.
