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.
(Deck is a Morgan Greer)
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.
Eclipses are game changers
“This family of eclipses is concerned with the endings or separations. Thus when it affects a chart individuals will find themselves dealing with a parting…..”
From Predictive Astrology, The eagle and the lark by Bernadette Brady
This reminds me of the Death card in the tarot, an ending that might be important but isn’t easy, but in doing so, we are able to create space for new opportunities…but death, even metaphorically is hard for us and it requires us to let go, and go through a grieving process. Pisces recognizes we are all ONE, and therefore, we never ever really die, so this might help us in this process.
This is a great eclipse for healers, mediums, psychics, and spiritual people in general, Chiron the wounded healer is involved in this eclipse, and it’s also a south node eclipse, so the theme is about healing the past.
If you are a holistic or occultpreneur, use this energy to tune in and find out what your paths is, and what do you need to heal to move forward in life and your business. You might find that others coming to you in the next few months are seeking the same answers, suffering the loss of something that creates a void, this needs to be turned into a space for the new opportunities to be welcomed in.
So if you’re looking for a ritual, I would suggest that you set an intention to heal or release any issues that blocking your spiritual development, ask where you need to be going, what is your direction.

Here is a good article which outlines the pitfalls of ignoring words because we dislike them, but they are the words our target market will use. This case study involved client who offered psychic services but didn’t want to use the word “psychic” and wanted to use an alternative, suffice to say the person was shooting themselves in the foot, because their target audience used this word to search for services.
When I started working with Amy Beeson who is a freelance Brand Consultant and Coach she had a similar problem with me, many words currently for the services I provide I detested. I had a strong reaction to many words such as:
Well you get the picture, when I started the business I wanted to steer away from all the clichés but I soon learnt that you need to focus on your audience, how are your customers going to find you?
This was a mindset change I had to make, and it sounds simple but it was a process which took time for me to get my head round. You have to remember that you’re not defining your work this way, but using the right keywords enables you to reach more people, and therefore spread your message and services wider, that is the end goal…..even if you initially balk at it, if you don’t use these words you limit yourself.
So are you limiting yourself and your business?
