Inspired by recent conversations that I’ve had with psychics Carole J. Obley and Angela Thomas, I decided to dust off my Tarot cards and try something different for my 400th post here at The Big Séance. I am certainly not a Tarot reader, and I haven’t had the cards out in over a year, but I feel like I was led to get them out and incorporate them into this post. In fact, I was led out of bed at 1am to do it.
Here’s how it works. If you’re not familiar with the Tarot, a 3 card spread is one of many spreads that readers use. Many of them involve more than 3 cards, and some of them are quite complicated. There are even different ways to do a 3 card spread. My intention was to see what the cards had to say about the past (card on the left), present (card in the center), and the future (card on the right) of BigSeance.com and the Big Séance Podcast.
After a very quick meditation and sending my question (Big Séance’s past, present, and future) out to the universe, I shuffled and pulled my 3 cards. I’m not going to lie, I was a little concerned with the second and third cards. I know, I know, I know… I’m not supposed to see the violent image of the tower and the naturally scary image of the Devil and immediately think I’m in trouble. But I immediately thought, Whoa. Was this a mistake? Is The Big Séance screwed? Should I just re-draw and no one needs to know? Is this something bad? Well I reached out to Angela Thomas, who works with the Tarot regularly and even has a new book coming out on the topic, and she was quick to remind me that there are both positive and negative things associated with these cards. And so I have decided to bravely share the cards that I pulled and continue on with the idea of this 400th post!
Angela Thomas reads and interprets my 3 cards!
Angela, who is actually the next guest on an upcoming episode of the podcast, was kind enough to give me a thorough reading, based on the three cards that I pulled above. First of all, I was immediately relieved to find that the reading seemed overwhelmingly positive, considering the imagery on the cards (which, once again, can symbolize positive or negative). With that being said, I have decided not to include this reading here, partly because some of it is personal, partly because I’m still processing some of it, and also because there may be some exciting things happening in the future, and I wouldn’t want to share that now. One thing I can tell you is that I was floored with several major hits and validations in the reading already. I want to thank Angela for sharing her time and gift for me. Stay tuned for more on Angela, but you can find her at AngelaThomas.org.
How would YOU read these cards?
What are your thoughts? How would you read these cards? Are you an experienced Tarot reader? Maybe you’re just learning and trying it out? It doesn’t matter. This could be a very interesting discussion. Clearly I’d prefer that these cards were interpreted positively, but I want this to be an honest exercise with honest feedback and readings.
