No, this isn't a post about how to get the most of your workout routine with the aid of tarot - though I'm sure it wouldn't be above their ability to assist with this either! When I talk about flexing, what I'm describing is a method of reading that allows you to bend and mold the card's standard meaning to fit the specific question being asked.

It really illustrates the unique perspective we all bring and the many layers that the cards can create. I won't tell you what I saw or what others saw just yet though. Before I get to that, have a look at the image below for yourself and tell me what you see. Here are some prompts to get things flowing:Read More
