At last night’s monthly tarot gathering we explored some correspondences between tarot, astrology, I Ching, and runes. We began by doing short, three-card readings for partners. Then I handed everyone a booklet I created based on researching several books so they could find deeper or different layers of meaning in the cards they drew. Common threads were found and richer stories were woven as a result. It was enjoyable too! Here’s a one-card example of my own.
My question: Whom am I called to serve at this time through tarot, reiki, journalling, and circle?
The card: TEMPERANCE, reversed. Inner healing and creativity. Bringing parts of self together. Spiritual and psychological healing, wholeness, and creativity.
Astrological correspondence: SAGITTARIUS. The Truth. The Big Picture. A map of the territory.
Runic correspondence (according to Peter D. Cowen): SOWELO . The Life Force. Wholeness.
I Ching Correspondence (according to Akron & Hajo Banzhaf): HEXAGRAM # 15 (Humbling / The Grey One). Balance. Humility. The process of activating liminal processes.
Gathering all of this information together, I can say that:
- I’m called to serve Greater Wholeness.
- I’m called to serve my own journey to spiritual and psychological wholeness, the Life Force, and the process of humbly activating my own liminal processes in a balanced manner.
- I’m called to serve all beings who seek spiritual and psychological wholeness through maps of Life’s Big Picture, humbly employing those maps in conjunction with the Life Force to activate their liminal processes in a balanced manner.
I love it when all of these signs come together in a meaningful way!
