The Tarot is the Key to IT ALL. Yes it is.

The Tarot is the key that will unlock any mystery, or give solutions for any problem. This might be hard to accept if you are new to the subject, but as one author said: What the Tarot can be made to reveal is limited only by the understanding of the reader.

This put you firmly in the driving seat. Your future is in your hands; this is liberating.

Your own questions answered in a personal reading from John Ballantrae

When you have a sense of the past, present and future of a situation or problem, it's easier to handle it wisely. Readings for all by John Ballantrae. 20 minutes is usually enough time to answer your question or questions.

The procedure that I follow: I shuffle for a while, thinking about your question; then I pick cards and make some notes about the answer. I do something else for a bit, and then re-consider and re-organize the notes to make them more complete. Then I record the answer and email the mp3 file. I take follow-up questions or comments if needed.

If you're not sure: go to YouTube, search for johnballantrae001 and watch one or two of the 80 videos I posted there for my 670+ subscribers.

Or listen to past or present episodes of my radio show: www.blogtalkradio.com/john-ballantrae/

This one is called: It isn't you; it's the spread. You'd think it would be easy to make up a spread, but it isn't. You can't read most of them, and I explain how and why this is so - and offer an alternative.

5 September 2010: Podcast 005 (20 minutes 35 seconds).

29 August 2010: Podcast 004 (24 minutes 55 seconds).

This podcast discusses first the Waite Tarot deck and how and why its symbolism works for most questions.

Last is a suggestion for a good book to read.

22 August 2010: Podcast 003 (33 minutes 04 seconds).

Listen to Podcast 003. The first 15 minutes is about why it's not ridiculous to look for answers to important questions in Tarot cards; people operate from habit rather than from thinking about the best option; Edward de Bono's Six Thinking Hats shows how to avoid confusion by not mixing criticalness, emotion, optimism, etc.; this is what the Tarot does and how it helps.
There is about 14 minutes of conversation/discussion with Cheryl who had asked a question to know if now is a good time to relocate back to England; we consider The Star, The Lovers reversed, and The Hermit.
The last 3 or so minutes is about what Shakespeare tells us about life and people, and how the Tarot can show us how to act in a noble manner.

27 June 2010 - Reading The Tarot - Beyond Journalling

People usually tell you that a good way to learn to read cards is to pick one a day or one a week, and think about what it means, keeping your ideas in some sort of Journal.

It sounds like a good idea, but I could never make it work. I'd try and try, and feel guilty that I wasn't doing it right.

However, the exercise discussed here encourages you to think of a question first, and then pick a card - or rather to keep picking cards to answer the same question. It's a lot easier because you now have a context in which to understand the card.

=> The audio file willl open when you click here, and is a bit under 30 minutes long.

<New video; uploaded on 10 December>

What is the best Tarot spread? A couple of people asked about when to use the Celtic Cross or a Yes-No spread, or if there is a better general-purpose spread. The video ended up being a bit more than twenty minutes in length, so I split it into two sections.

Part One looks at designing your own spread; and the Celtic Cross.

Part Two deals with single card answers, and 3, 5 and 7 card descriptions of the past, present and future.

<New video; uploaded on August 10> The Fool meets The Hermit on his journey through the Major Trumps. Just under ten minutes long.
