I was lucky enough to see Ed Sheeran in concert the other night, with the added bonus of one of my favourite Australian musical acts, Missy Higgins, thrown in. I bought the ticket a couple of hours beforehand on impulse. It was a beautiful Melbourne day, the concert had been getting rave reviews, and I have a soft spot for Missy (even more than Ed).
This led me to wonder about the Tarot of a Music Concert.
I’ve just finished reading Marian Keyes’ novel ‘The Break’. Most peeps who like to write like to read. And I am no exception. It’s always a bit of fun to investigate the Tarot of everyday life. So let’s dive deep into the Tarot of ‘The Break’. No spoilers, I promise. Continue reading →
The Fool is the first card in the Life Lessons section of Tarot (aka the Major Arcana.) It represents our first actions and feelings. This card asks us to have trust. To trust that when we leap off the precipice we will not be crushed on rocks below but will land on our feet. To trust that everything will work out okay in the future.
Just when you thought I might have given up on this blog altogether – Hello! I’ve been to hell but I’m back again. I’m thinking that this year I’d like to retrace our steps through Everyday Tarot (aka the Minor Arcana) one card at a time. Recap all the things we’ve discussed about theses cards. Circumstances permitting of course.
Does that sound like a good plan? Let me know what you think.

The Fool. Patron saint of all new enterprises. Publishing your first post on a blog. Starting at a new school. Getting ready to jump out of a plane. Psyching yourself up to ask a question or make a comment at a meeting. Feeling your dad let go of your bike after you’ve just given up your training wheels. Pulling out a credit card to place an order for a set of window shutters to the tune of $2000 (that was me yesterday and hell yeah it was scary, that’s a looooot of money).
I’ve decided to dedicate Thursdays to re-running old posts. Maybe mashed up together or with new information thrown in. Because there are some Tarot stories that deserve to be retold. Because I want to refocus on central themes from time to time. Today is one of those occasions.
One of the reasons I love Tarot cards so much is that they’re deeply meaningful. In particular the group of cards commonly known as The Major Arcana. I refer to them as Life Lessons Tarot because together they read like a book about the core life experiences of a human being. For me this is Tarot’s Holy Book. I’ve divided it up into three volumes and a prologue.
