A couple of days ago, on one of our Gaian Tarot Circle teleseminars, Shari Smith guided us through a process of consciously picking cards to represent how we’d like our querents/readees/clients to feel or be after a tarot session with us. Then we talked about how each card would respond to ethical questions around third party readings, timing, yes/no questions etc. We also picked a card to represent ourselves as tarot readers/consultants/practitioners to remember how we’d like to be in session with people. Mine are
FOR THE CLIENT/READEE
FOUR OF FIRE. The readee is standing firmly in hir personal power.
NINE OF WATER. The readee is in awe of the Cosmos and of hir part in it. S/He experiences both “ah” and “aha!”
FOR ME AS TAROT PRACTITIONER/CONSULTANT
SAME CARDS AS ABOVE (4 of Fire and 9 of Water) plus the STAR.
4 of Fire. I stand firmly in my power with open, welcoming arms.
9 of Water. I am in awe of the Cosmos and my role in that. I experience both “ah” and “aha!” moments along with the readee. I am a safe haven and my arms, again, are open and welcoming.
Star. I hold the space and time gracefully and with care. I am a pool of clarity that reflects the readee’s luminosity back to hir. I kneel humbly before the depth of readee, Cosmos, and self.
