Yesterday, I conducted a Q & A session on Facebook about working with the tarot. I loved everybody’s questions. Today, I’ll focus on the one about the practice of the Card of the Day.
THE PERSON’S ENQUIRY:
Do you have any suggestions for “livening things up” in a one-card daily draw practice? I’m thinking of that point where you’ve been doing it for months (or years!), and are committed to continuing, and find it very useful–but perhaps are getting just a wee bit bored with it, or are rushing through it because it’s come to feel almost routine and predictable.
You could ask specific questions for your CotD such as:
- What is this day to me, and who am I to this day?
- How can I triumph/succeed in every aspect of life today?
- Which part of me is most alive today?
- Who do I need to be today?
- Who do I not need to be today?
- Who is my ally today?
- What do I most need to learn, know, or focus on today?
Here’s another tip. Pick a Card of the Week and turn its concepts into seven questions. As the week unfolds, select one of those questions each day and pick your Card of the Day to respond to it.
You can also do something non-verbal with your CotD. Move like its characters, make gestures like the card’s energy, dance it, draw it, paint it, wear its colours and textures, make non-verbal sounds as if it were a non-human animal, etc.
