My Tarot Story
In woo-woo circles, you'll hear about paths finding or choosing you. They say that when something is right for you it won't let you run away from it. In that sense, my Tarot journey is pretty cliche.
I bought my first set of oracle cards in the summer of 2017. They would constantly give me goosebumps for how relevant they seemed to be for my friends and me. I kind of brushed them off as having generic messages that you could make work for any situation and what you got out of it was what you wanted. However, I kept pulling cards and eventually bought my first tarot deck.
I shuffled the cards and decided I'd just draw one to start. I flipped over the 2 of Wands. This card is often about new discoveries and making progress. It's all about getting in deeply in touch with your intuition in order to fully recognize that you've got the skills to achieve everything you want. In the Motherpeace Tarot, the deck I was using, it's a picture of a woman working to start a fire and asking an ancestor for help. It just so happened that, at this point in my life, I was working hard to connect with the earth and others in traditional, shamanic, healing ways. Talk about blowing my mind a bit!
I remained skeptical, but kept pulling cards for myself and others. I started to learn all that I could about the card meanings, the history of Tarot, everything. It was the most excited I'd been to learn in a really long time. People that I hadn't shared my new hobby with would randomly call me and ask about pulling cards or getting a reading. My friends that already connected with the Tarot would encourage me to use the cards in different ways and not stop.
Eventually, I couldn't ignore the way the cards were always the reminder that was needed and the lessons coming from them. I had to listen to this calling and find ways to share my gifts and passions with others.
