>>321

as an addendum, if one is to use this, I would complete the energy circuit by lightly tensing the perineum and tongue to roof of mouth, invoking the higher self/guides, asking for truth, then sensing which to choose.

I've found that randomly picking can work too but once I started asking a lot of questions it got less reliable, so I assume it's an energy dissipation kind of thing.

I imagine anyone who doesn't need this advice also doesn't need this divination method.

Should be better than flipping a coin or using an RNG though.

I really need a reading on a current situation of mine. Basically, I have two choices, either to make a certain change for awhile, or continue on in the same manner, and I would like to know the outcomes of both. I'm a female if that helps.

 No.367

>>360

I'll give it a whirl.

As this is a practice thread, I'll be a bit looser in my assumptions/intuition. Let me know if I'm right or wrong. (:

Energy Deck:

General advice: Anxiety(R), Rest and Rejuvenation.

Path of Change: Envy (R)

Path of Continuing: Angel of Strength.

Middle Path (?) : Goddess of the Moon (R)

Sounds like. You should take it a bit easier, to stop worry. Meditate, connect to intuition.

Change seems the way to get over feelings of... envy? and staying the path, you will call upon reserves of Strength.

Ascended Masters Deck:

General advice: Open Your Heart to Love, See The Other Person's Point of View.

Path of Change: Retreat into Nature

Continue: Twin Flame.

Sounds like there's something you're not looking at, and that changing is what you want to do to stay with what vibes with you, or your inner nature. Staying the path will change you in a way in my perspective, as that is what the Twin Flame card means to me.

It could also mean that the path of Spirit (continuing) is the one with the Twin Flame.

I wonder if this is a romance issue, given the cards for general and staying the path. A person who wanted (somewhat) to be Twins burned me kind of badly. I feel she wouldn't change for the better, so she had me change for the worse instead. For a time, anyway.

Angel Deck

General: Move Your Body (R), Transformation

Change: Shine Your Light

Stay: Trust Your Vibes

Sounds like you may need to move to change, or you are changing, so you should do something to increase a motion in some way. Maybe actual exercise (if there's depression/root chakra imbalance involved).

If you stay, use your intuition and avoid what vibes you wrong.

If you change, use it to shine brightly.

stay: confusion, guilt.

This one is the deck with most interpretations.

Whatever you choose, find acceptance, have it become you more, vibe with it.

Change is bittersweet. I think perhaps you want to do it but you are holding on to what you think you want to be/do.

the stay cards here have several interpretations and I imagine there's more to know from the book. I'll upload that later tonight.

Mermaid Deck for general advice:

Yes: "Your intuition is correct, act accordingly"

Morning Affirmations (R): "Say positive affirmations each morning to open the gates of manifestation."

Protection: "You, your loved ones, and your possessions are safe and protected by heaven!"

>>366

> i just want to know if i'll meet a new guy soon

sounds like a yes/no, which is difficult. maybe try the online yes/no thing posted.

Being lonely keeps you from attracting better people; keep yourself busy with things you like and find someone who does something you like or is attractive in some way. Don't be afraid to take a little initiative.

Is my advice.

If you're depressed, work on your root and heart chakras/maybe shadow work. Get energy and/or shamanic healing if you've got a problem and you can get that.

Good luck.

Could I request a brief reading telling me where my romantic life is going?


 No.373

>>371

Actually, I was >>360 and this reading resonated with me in a few ways, not so much in others. For one, it really isn't a romance issue at all. But what I found especially intriguing was the advice to exercise, as getting into shape would be one of the things about myself I'd focus on if I were to make the change. Nonetheless, thank you for the reading. I'll take some of what was said into consideration.


 No.374

>>373

Yes, I didn't think it was a romance issue, but played that part of the interpretation loosely, based on the stuff I drew.

See The Other Person's Point of View is the only one that I have no idea how it would fit in to the rest.

I intuited it was more of a transformation thing than romance, but I'm still developing certainty in intuition over logic.

Well I'm going to work under the impression that you're single, considering that most people who ask for these types of readings are. Since you asked for a brief reading I only pulled three cards, all of which came out reversed.

>You: The Hanged Man (reversed)

>What You Need to Overcome to Find Romance: Five of Cups (reversed)

>Future/Outcome: Nine of Rods (reversed)

It seems that you are holding on to something, whether that be keeping faith for a new romance or what have you. Although, one thing seems clear and that is you may not need to overcome any emotional obstacles before entering a new relationship. It's apparent that you may have or are in the process of letting go of past heart ache and are now ready to move on to your next romantic fling. As for what the future may hold, there's a possibility that you may run out of morale, which can hurt your opportunities for a new relationship. Keep your chin up, as they say.

Some feedback would be greatly appreciated. If I was completely wrong in my assumptions don't be afraid to tell me.


 No.377

I drew you some cards anon, but I must apologize I'm not in the best place to interpert them at the moment so here's the book. (Deck is Rider-Waite.)

>What is it that anon must do to develop his psychic sight?

SWORDS Ten, Inverted

A prostrate figure, pierced by all the swords belonging to the card. Divinatory Meanings: Whatsoever is intimated by the design; also pain, affliction, tears, sadness, desolation. It is not especially a card of violent death. Reversed: Advantage, profit, success, favour, but none of these are permanent; also power and authority.

Crossed/Clarified by

SWORDS Six

A ferryman carrying passengers in his punt to the further shore. The course is smooth, and seeing that the freight is light, it may be noted that the work is not beyond his strength. Divinatory Meanings: journey by water, route, way, envoy, commissionary, expedient. Reversed: Declaration, confession, publicity; one account says that it is a proposal of love.

>What is it that is blocking this goal?

WANDS Nine

The figure leans upon his staff and has an expectant look, as if awaiting an enemy. Behind are eight other staves--erect, in orderly disposition, like a palisade. Divinatory Meanings: The card signifies strength in opposition. If attacked, the person will meet an onslaught boldly; and his build shews, that he may prove a formidable antagonist. With this main significance there are all its possible adjuncts--delay, suspension, adjournment. Reversed: Obstacles, adversity, calamity.

Crossed/Clarified by

XVIII

The Moon

Natural: Hidden enemies, danger, calumny, darkness, terror, deception, occult forces, error.

Reversed: Instability, inconstancy, silence, lesser degrees of deception and error.

The distinction between this card and some of the conventional types is that the moon is increasing on what is called the side of mercy, to the right of the observer. It has sixteen chief and sixteen secondary rays. The card represents life of the imagination apart from life of the spirit. The path between the towers is the issue into the unknown. The dog and wolf are the fears of the natural mind in the presence of that place of exit, when there is only reflected light to guide it.

The last reference is a key to another form of symbolism. The intellectual light is a reflection and beyond it is the unknown mystery which it cannot shew forth. It illuminates our animal nature, types of which are represented below--the dog, the wolf and that which comes up out of the deeps, the nameless and hideous tendency which is lower than the savage beast. It strives to attain manifestation, symbolized by crawling from the abyss of water to the land, but as a rule it sinks back whence it came. The face of the mind directs a calm gaze upon the unrest below; the dew of thought falls; the message is: Peace, be still; and it may be that there shall come a calm upon the animal nature, while the abyss beneath shall cease from giving up a form.

Thank you for taking the time for the divination. I searched online, finding other interpretations while considering my own and the one provided. It seems I need to let my own shield down and accept other aspects of myself that recent harsh experiences have opened up while grabbing the reins of others, even if I was unwilling to accept them at first, but I may need to be more cautious from now on.

Hi anons. I'm not sure this is the right thread for this but here it goes.

I have been playing with Tarot for a few years, but just for fun. It was the influence of a family member. I never took it seriously until it started predicting things in my life. The spoopiness is making me go slightly insane.

I have just started reading for others and I can see an improvement with that, I get a lot of positive feedback. I have also been studying occultism for a while now. But reading for myself seems to get harder. I get a lot of major arcana and my last spread was about the road ahead of me. I asked when will the yellow bricks start to show in the dark forest I am currently finding myself (yeah I like WOZ). I did a 4 cards spread and got:

>Justice

>Devil

>Chariot

>Star

I see a big change is coming but that's all I get from this. Can anyone offer me some insight?


 No.394

>>393

>The scales will be balanced, justice restored or had

>there will be darkness, temptations, perhaps even degeneracy

>and then a shift, movement (in the direction of the path out)

>Hope shines and you're following the (now illuminated) path

Curtisory of an anon who's in a esoteric chat I'm in. Hopefully it helps some. I'm not personally sure how easy this would be for your average reader though. This demands some crystal ball gazing tier shit.

<Anon> Because a 4 card spread is shit

<Anon> especially when you draw 4 trumps

<Anon> they'd have had to draw 1 other card for each trump

<Anon> but lets just go with what they have for the sake of it

<Anon> I"m going to translate Justice->ADjustment

<Anon> Because it makes a lot more sense in the context of the trump

<Anon> and this reading

<Anon> they're identical cards

<Anon> its just that justice is a crappy name for the card

<Anon> So we have 8-14-7-17, not much there

<Anon> yeah no good clues in the gematria, but whats interesting

<Anon> is that they do form a cohesive path on the tree of life

<Anon> Tif-Hod-Geburah-Binah

<Anon> So you've got the left feminine pillar formed through strength

<Anon> Honestly I think also in addition to this the astrology involved with these cards is indicative of people in the situation

<Anon> Without a court card you can't really nail that on the head

<Anon> But thats what it looks like to me in a basic 4 card spread

<Anon> So starting with Adjustment, Essentially this is going to be the person in question, in the situation

<Anon> its a mirror of the intent of the quesiton

<Anon> Its what she is looking for, essentially

<Anon> So we know the tarot deck has comrehended and responded to the question...at least

<Anon> Thats essentially what we get from this trump

<Anon> The Devil is of course, what's coming as a result of asking the question, what will come

<Anon> Another reason why 4 card spreads just absolutely suck

<Anon> the cards can come out, out of order and then you have no frame and context

<Anon> But It looks like WE have Adjustment as a mirror of the situation, the Devil as the realization of the intent, what is to come

<Anon> and then you have the two forces That define the two directions of where you can go

<Anon> Namely, The Star, going to Chokmah

<Anon> And The Chariot, going to Binah

<Anon> So there is a fork in the road in her situation, she has a decision to make for herself

<Anon> This has nothing to do with change coming, she misread that

<Anon> It has to do with a decision that she has to make

<Anon> One path forms a connection to Binah, and one path forms a connection to Chokmah, these are interesting outcomes, and slightly opposed to one another

<Anon> there is 0 context here to answer the question of "WHEN"

<Anon> thats a misphrasing on her part

<Anon> and if she was more skilled she'd have known to draw more cards to help with the when

<Anon> whens require minor arcana and/or court cards to form dates

<Anon> You won't get that from a trump

<Anon> BUT

<Anon> BUT

<Anon> You do have 3 signs, and a moon called out

<Anon> so you could, feasibly, divine a date from when the moon passes through the 3 signs

<Anon> So her little deck instead of saying when said

<Anon> Hey your roads coming, you're probably already on it

<Anon> but its going to fork

<Anon> and you are going to have two entirely different directions to go that will change your path

<Anon> The decision is going to be between the forces of Binah, and Chokmah


 No.428

Alright, I don't know if any of you are still here, but here goes:

>>366

I drew a card for your current situation: 10 of Swords in reverse. It seems that you're rather hurt, perhaps from a past broken relationship; a painful ending leaving you stuck with swords in your entire body.

On your best course of action, I drew The Fool in reverse. Well, I suppose this is simply telling you to let go and do whatever the heck you want; act like The Fool in regards to your love life.

And your next romantic opportunity, the King of Cups. The next lad whom you will have a chance with will be a well-balanced person in all regards, especially emotionally. A generous, gracious, kind of guy sitting on his throne waiting for you to appear in his life.

>>378

I drew three cards: The World in reverse, 8 of Swords, and Ace of Cups.

You have to know what type of results you are looking for here; be clear in your pursuits and don't waste time with what you think won't help. With the 8 of Swords in the fold, it seems that you should perhaps shield yourself a little, spiritually speaking. At the end of it all comes the Ace of Cups-- a new beginning, to simply put. I'm getting the feeling that you're a little stuck, so perhaps it'd be best for you to take some time out and think of what you really want.

>>389

For your situation, I drew The Sun. Straightforward, and interpretation is in the card name itself.

Your place in her life is the Temperance-- you're there to help her find meaning and purpose in life; sorta like a parental figure, I guess. Her place in yours is the 4 of Swords in reverse-- she's here to help you break through some barriers and limits and find a ground for you to stand on.

This two, read together, seems to tell the story of a balanced and healthy relationship in which you two helps and lifts each other up mutually. I'd say you're going to have a lot to learn from this, and so does she.

>>399

I skimmed through this; I don't know why you'd want it, but I will give my two cents.

>crystal ball gazing tier shit.

If you want to scry it, it honestly depends on what the scrier can perceive or see. It's not a query I'd try with scrying, since the things you see when scrying are highly symbolic and most of the time the symbolism only makes sense to the querent in question. Not every divination method is catch-all, and it highly depends on the diviner.

If you'd like to divine something such as a name, the better and more straightforward methods are ones that focuses on letters in the alphabet. This is called Grammatomancy-- divination by letters. You can do this with, say, Norse runes or Ogham. For something like this, it highly depends on the intuition of the diviner to pick up what's "out there". It's also possible to use the English alphabet for this in the form of letters on a cube/tile.

For example, I would shuffle and lay out all 24 runes on the ground, then let my intuition guide me and pick out one rune at a time and note down the characters. I'd then reshuffle, and do it all over again until I feel that it's sufficient (again, tell with your intuition), then re-arrange the letters to form a word (or name, in this instance). Or you could just draw one rune out at a time and do the same thing.

It's highly time consuming, there's no guarantee, and you need some level of proficiency in solving anagrams.

>What You Need to Focus On: Page of Cups (reversed)

>Near Future: Queen of Swords

>Distant Future: Nine of Pentacles

>Outcome: Justice (reversed)

The reversed Page of Cups indicates that you shouldn't be relationship oriented within the next months. Maybe you just got over a bad break up, or maybe you are at a critical point in your life and need to focus on yourself. Either way it would be beneficial for you to spend some time alone for awhile.

The near and distant future tie into the first card quite a bit. Going with my intuition, I'd say that you may turn away any possibilities for a relationship, on account of having the foresight to see what may come of it. After awhile you may even start to enjoy being alone and see some of its benefits.

Some other things that the future may hold would be the possibility of being able to be honest with yourself about your situation, and retaining some self-control. This is where the reading gets a bit tricky. The reversed Justice doesn't spell too good of an outcome when interpreted on its own, but considering that some of the previous cards contradict it I wouldn't worry too much about it. The energy of this card just may balance out the influence of the previous cards, in particular the bit about self honesty and discipline.


 No.456

>>455

Thank you for the reading

I can definitely see why I shouldn't be relationship oriented in the next few months as you stated a potentially critical point in my life is going to happen fairly soon and I might not be around to maintain any newly formed relationships.

retaining selfcontrol will also be important as I might fall into neet tendancies if the critical point didn't go the way I want/expected. any advice on retaining some self control after a potential loss?


 No.457

>>456

I would give advice off of personal experience but the fact of the matter is I have very little self-control myself. So I pulled a card to see if anything insightful would come up.

>Seven of Rods (reversed)

I'll interpret this as just go with the flow for awhile if things don't go as hoped. Perhaps be passive a little bit and await another opportunity that's sure to come up, if it's that sort of thing.
