I’ve talked about mental illness before. But in my opinion, as someone who’s had extensive experience in this area, you can never talk about it enough. There are lots of peeps suffering out there with one form or another of this insidious disease.
Let’s dive deep into the Tarot of Mental Illness shall we…
Tarot cards often turn up reversed in a reading about mental illness, because the energy is being expressed inappropriately or negatively.
Five of Pentacles: Low self-esteem. Self-hatred.
Six of Cups Reversed: Delusion
Six of Swords Reversed: Stuck in grief
Nine of Swords Reversed: Anxiety. Insomnia. Nightmares.
Nine of Wands Reversed: Paranoia
Ten of Swords: Depression
Temperance Reversed: Chemical imbalance e.g. Bipolar
The Devil Reversed: Addiction issues. Alcoholism. Drugs. Prescription meds.
The Tower Reversed: Panic attacks. Breakdown.
The Star Reversed: Suicidal
The Moon Reversed: Hallucinations. Psychosis. Being controlled by your subconscious. This can be one serious mother*cker of a card.
If your experience these disorders you might find this happening…
The Hermit: You’re referred to a therapist
The Star: Medication. Hospitalisation.
The Moon: Your condition is serious enough to require long-term therapy from a specialist, such as a psychiatrist.
So you are able to do this…
Eight of Cups: Find another way to operate
So that you can…
Temperance: Become a healthier version of yourself
The Sun: Be a better version of yourself
