Even though I grew up in a very Catholic family, I have been exposed to Tarot reading and other forms of divination since childhood. Both my mother and great-grandmother read Tarot (Spanish deck). My mother still uses my great-grandmother's cards. I don't understand her deck very much, as it is very different from the French spread that I've grown accustomed to. I always found it strange that a woman who claims she's a devout Catholic would play around with things like Tarot cards. I think there is a part of her that doesn't want to admit how much of the craft is within her family.
This week, I've been doing a daily draw from my deck. I still use the Universal Waite because it's what I'm most comfortable with. I think doing the daily draw will help bring me closer to my cards and give me a stronger understanding of their meanings. I have my tarot journal, but I need to be better at keeping it. My friend who started our coven actually created a great worksheet that I plan on using. I think I'll continue the journal I have, because it's really pretty, but I'll use the set up from her worksheet.
So, this leads me to the purpose of today's blog post. I wanted to bring in my tarot study to the blog as a part of my weekly reflections. I think I'll close each week (Saturdays) with a reflection on my daily draws and see how they fall into my week once it's finished. If any of you are experienced readers and would like to offer some advice/critique/help with the readings, I would greatly appreciate it.
