Below are a handful of resources that I would like to offer my fellow readers, seasoned or budding. Feel free to use or share these items to your liking.
Spreads Through The Major Arcana
This is a 29 page PDF featuring 25 unique tarot spreads. The guide gives insight into each card of The Major Arcana and provides at least 1 spread in its essence. Take a journey with The Fool from naivety to fulfillment and learn something about the cards and your own life's path along the way.
Dreamwork & Tarot
In November, Nisha and myself hosted a 30 day social media challenge involving tarot and dream analysis. This here is an adapted mini guidebook that explores the same concepts that we did during the challenge. In includes tips for dream recall, tarot spreads for dream analysis, an overview of different dream states of consciousness, information on crystals that enhance dreaming and a template to get your dream journal started.
Reading In The Flow
This worksheet is a PDF that you may print out and use to help you to begin recognizing the symbolic connections in your readings. It includes a “quick association” reference guide as well as a chart that you can fill out while interpreting a spread. This is a great exercise to train yourself to start looking for patterns and repeated imagery. For reference, you can check out the original blog post that explains the concepts in a bit more detail.
Delivering A Memorable Email Reading
I've written a blog post to elaborate on the resources available, so check that out if you'd like additional information. Below are a couple resources for readers to help craft and format your email readings.
a) Email Reading Checklist: You can grab the checklist and use it as a quick reference sheet to ensure you've covered all your bases before you hit "send"!
b) Email Reading Template: If you need a template to work from, you can take a look at the general style in which I construct my readings online and of course, edit it to fit your style and brand. There are two versions of the template available for download: PDF or Doc.
Getting To Know The Court Characters
If you've struggled to understand the court characters or commit their attributes to memory, this exercise may help you form a more meaningful relationship to one of the most misunderstood aspects of the tarot deck. This two page worksheet provides an exercise to begin to build character associations with all of the court cards, helping you expand your understanding of them and apply your own interpretations as well.
