Friday Night Fun: Easter

It’s the end of the week and the start of the Easter holiday. For many, it is a serious reminder of Christs’ sacrifice on the cross. For others, it’s the start of a long weekend holiday. And for those with children it’s about the joy of organising an Easter egg hunt. Friday is for fun on this blog, so for your enjoyment I present some Easter memes I’ve been giggling at this week Continue reading

Happy New Year 2018

There’s a numerological formula you can use to work out your Tarot Card of the Year. This card represents the type of experiences you can expect to have during that year. I’ve been using the formula for so long I can’t remember where I learnt this trick, but I find it quite reliable.

The formula gives you a number that correlates with one of the Life Lesson aka Major Arcana cards. Because of the way it works each following year you shift into the subsequent Life Lesson card e.g. If your Tarot Year Card in 2017 was The Empress, in 2018 it will be The Emperor. However, at the turn of each decade or century, you will be sent to a different part of the Major Arcana, and begin a new cycle.

The formula is this: Continue reading

The Many Faces Of Tarot

Sean BeanI am a story teller not a fortune teller. Not that there’s anything wrong with that (as Seinfeld would say.) It’s just there’s so much more to Tarot cards.

Personally, I believe they’re a relic from the prehistoric era. This epoch’s contribution to the formation of Western Civilisation has been vastly underestimated IMHO. Before we wrote down our wisdom in words we drew it in pictures. They were our holy books. Our teachers. Our counsellors. But when the written word took over this aspect of pictography was forgotten. Only the fortune telling element remained. As a stain. A slur on the achievements of our ancestors. Which has stopped the vast majority (but not the curious few) from exploring Tarot cards in depth.

There are so faces to Tarot. Let me share some with you… Continue reading

The Tarot Year Card: When Does It Kick In?

We’ve talked about your personal Tarot Card-Of-The-Year before. But for those of you new to The Tarot Teaclub or who’ve forgotten it’s a numerological formula you use to work out which Tarot card represents the type of experiences you can expect to have each year. The formula is this: You add up your birth day + your birth month + the current calendar year. Then you work out which Life Lesson card matches the number you got. If the number is greater than 21, you add the digits together. Most years you just move into the next Life Lesson card. For example, I had The Devil last year so now I’m in The Tower.

There’s a bit of controversy about when this card kicks in. Continue reading
