Tarot Meetup -Can you feel it?
I had a great time as guest speaker at the LTSG, which we have been assured is the biggest tarot meet up in London!
This post has a free exercise from that meetup at the end of this blog.
I don’t have time for that much theory without the practice to really understand how things fit together so I made sure that I gave the members a meetup a tarot work out.

As I was walking (literally in many cases) the members through the exercises I realized how much miss teaching. We had a mixed group from novice to advanced, and I took joy from seeing that even the seasoned professionals managed to get something from the session.
I am thankful to all the members you attended for making the event such fun!
So today as I look back and write the lessons learnt, I am going to leave you with one exercise that isn’t just for tarot readers, since this is energy work it can be done by healers, mediums, psychics and such like.
Tarot exercise – Can you feel it?
Inspired by Rachel Pollack, when I first read ‘Seventy eight degrees of wisdom’ it made me look at the cards differently, brought them to life by stepping into the card, I have since expanded this by investigating work by Judy Hall which makes the work with the tarot more physical. You can use tarot to combine with therapies such as family constellation and experiential astrology, by making the tarot an experience.
So this exercise is simply a chance to play, to feel the card, experience it.
- So shuffle your deck and pick a card, you might need to pull cards until you have one with a figure on, alternatively pick the cards up that you feel drawn too.
- Look at your card, find some space in the room, and then (like Madonna) strike a pose, copy the figure on the card that draws you eye. This does require you to stand up if the figure is on the card, copy not only the arm positions, the hands, legs and even the facial expression.
- Take 3 deep breaths whilst ‘acting the card’, and feel, let the energy of the card rise up and surround you.
- When you have finished, like Taylor Swift you need to ‘shake it off’…..whenever doing energy work, it’s important to let it go, and movement is the easiest way to do so, and the most fun!
I invite you all to try this exercise, and let me know what card you ‘became’, or share this with someone who might enjoy this.
