The Tarot of Westworld

unknown

I finally got around to watching Westworld. Despite many recommendations from friends, I didn’t like it’s misogynistic overtones. Of course, once I started, I couldn’t stop. Which doesn’t mean it was perfect.

Here are my many thoughts on the Tarot of Westworld.

But beware, spoilers after the cut… Continue reading

The Tarot of Terror

unknown

Any Doctor Who fans following this blog?

You’d recognise the above image then. A Weeping Angel. One of the most feared and truly terrifying creatures in the Whovian universe. They kill with a single touch. Propelling their victims back in time, before birth, so they can feed off it’s potential life energy. If you stumble into their lair, you have to keep your eye on them. Literally. Whilst watched, they freeze like a statue, but in the blink of an eye can be by your side, with hand outstretched.

I was feeling terror about something today. No biggie. A momentary flash. A realisation about a fear that’s been holding me back.

 It made me wonder which Tarot card would be associated with this powerful and consuming emotion.

It has to be this one… Continue reading

Tarot’s Lesson on Addiction

unknown

I read an interesting article today that suggests the opposite of addiction is not sobriety. It’s connection. Apparently there’s a lot of research to back up this statement. It also makes sense. Emotional trauma and loss are often at the core of addiction.

You can find the article here: http://upliftconnect.com/opposite-addiction-connection/.

Of course, all addictions are not created equal. You can addicted to cigarettes, alcohol or drugs. You can also be addicted to coffee, or in my case, milk for forty years. Some cause more damage than others. But they all cause damage. We all want solutions.

Tarot actually has a lesson to teach about addiction, which goes something like this…

The Tarot of The Wolf of Wall Street

I finally watched the Wolf of Wall Street and it was just as morally repugnant as I expected it to be. I had resisted it’s siren song for that reason for years. Honestly, life is too short to expend it watching peeps behave in a disgusting manner. But I recently succumbed because I wanted to see Margot Robbie’s breakthrough performance. Margot is not only a luminescent screen goddess but a fair dinkum sheila from Australia, like me (the Australian, not the goddess part, lol).

The Tarot of the Wolf of Wall Street would go something like this… Continue reading

The Tarot of The Women’s March

I attended the Women’s March in Melbourne this afternoon. The first of many being held around the world in support of the Women’s Marches in the U.S. tomorrow. Six thousand of us turned up. Not a shabby turnout for a sunny weekend day during summer.

I’m not a regular political activist. I don’t join marches at the drop of a hat. So I want to explore the Tarot of what I experienced… Continue reading

Happy New Year 2017

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 2016 was The Empress, in 2017 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
