My Tarot Journal/Lessons

Im staring a New Tarot Lesson and Tarot Journal on my Blog just to help me keep up with my Readings and also helps and teaches me more on the Tarot level. So your welcome to read it if you want if not just click on another link to go to.

I will have two labels one for my Tarot Journaling where I will  just write out my cards i drew for myself daily (well almost daily) and there will be one for my Tarot Lessons.

2 of my favorite Spreads I use most of the time are the Planetary Spread and Celtic cross but there are others I use for others who want a specific answer in Health,Love and Etc

7 Planetary Spread
1- Moon Position- Matters Concerning You at home
2-Mercury Position-Matters Concerning Business,Skills & Integrity
3-Venus Position-Matters Concerning Love
4-Sun Position-Mattes concerning your accomplishments
5-Mars Position-Matters Concerning Hostility,Opposition & Aggression
6-Jupiter-Matters Concerning Money,Fiance
7-Saturn-Matter concerning Intellect

The Celtic Cross Spread

Card 1:   The present
Card 2:   The immediate challenge facing the querent. You will often pull a difficult card here, which will indicate an obstacle that must be overcome. When you pull a "good" card here, examine it carefully because it will still represent a challenge.
Card 3:   Distant past, foundation. This card should indicate the root of the subject matter of the question
Card 4:   More recent past, including events. This will indicate events taking place, not necessarily directly connected to the question. For example, if a love affair going wrong Card 3 would show the root of why it is going wrong, whereas Card 4 will show something that recently happened to reflect this. You could see this as a "check comment" card - a way of seeing that the reading is sound.
Card 5:   The best that can be achieved. This is directly related to the question. Note that this may not necessarily gel against Card 10 - it depends whether you are able to get the best. However, a negative card here probably means that it is worth cutting your losses rather than putting any more effort into the situation.
Card 6: Immediate Future. This indicates events in the next few days or week(s). This reading does not cover months.
Card 7: Factors or inner feelings affecting the situation. Compare this against Card 1 in order to understand underlying forces/trends. If there is conflict between them this tends to indicate that the querent is going in the wrong direction.
Card 8: External influences. People, energies or events which will affect the outcome of the question and are beyond the querent's control.
Card 9: Hopes or fears around the situation. This may produce a card that confuses us badly. Always bear in mind that hopes and fears are closely intertwined, therefore that which we hope for may also be that which we fear, and so may fail to happen. Sometimes it is useful to draw a second card for clarification after the reading has been laid, and to read the two together.
Card 10: Final outcome. This is a fairly self explanatory card. However it is worth saying that if the card comes up somewhat ambiguous, once again it may be worth drawing three extra cards to clarify. These should be interpreted through the lens of Card 10. So if the card drawn is the Tower and we draw the Ace of Cups, Princess of Cups and Four of Cups in a reading about a relationship, the Tower would indicate that it is time to move on. The Ace of Cup suggests that a new relationship is promised with better things ahead. The Princess of Cups brings new love (and possibly pregnancy). The Four of Cups shows deep levels of contentment and happiness, and many options for progress.

nd Mary K. Greer in her book, 'The Complete Book on Tarot Reversals' goes even further and gives twelve (12) ways reversed cards might modify the upright meaning/meanings of a card.   1.) Blocked or Resisted
  2.) Projected
  3.) Delayed, difficult, unavailable
  4.) Inner, unconscious, private
  5.) New or Dark Moon (round deck variations)
  6.) Breaking through, overturning, refusing, changing direction
  7.) No or Not (the upright meaning): Lacking
  8.) Excessive, Over- or under compensating
  9.) Misused or Misdirected
10.) "Re-" Words: Retried, retracted, reviewed, reconsidered
11.) Rectification: Disease into Remedy
12.) Unconventional, Shamanic, Magical, Humorous
