So to start we are going to go back in time to when my journey with the tarot first began. Take yourself back a couple of months to late March 2015…

I’d only had my Shadowscapes deck for a couple of weeks, sifting through the cards, reading their meanings in Stephanie’s book, and online in various places. Everything was good in my life, I was so excited with my learning, literally spending every free moment with my mind at work discovering all I could. However I was scared of diving in and doing a reading. But then came the night of the 25th when something changed, when I decided to just jump in, pull a card and I wrote this in my journal…

So I have been putting off doing my first ever reading for fear of an inadequate interpretation! I have been feeling a lack of intellectual depth for quite some time now. I’m not sure whether it’s from a lack of intellectual stimulation, or of a feeling of falling short. I said to myself learn the meanings of the cards first! Not trusting myself with an interpretation based purely on intuition. But this was not fulfilling me, so something had to change.

I took my cards in my hands and I asked, “What message does the tarot have for me right now?” …and up comes the Knight of Wands.

I saw Adventure, Confidence, and Passion.

Maybe I need to take the plunge into my study of the tarot and be more confident that I will be a good reader. That I do have what it takes. I need to take the bull by its horns (or in this case, the Lion) and ride this adventure to wherever it will take me!!

Now a lot has happened since then. For a short period of time I really was taking that Lion by it’s horns, running with him through the wilds on a tarot adventure. But as with all adventures they must come to an end, and unfortunately mine was quite a bumpy one, but more on that next time.

Until then…

  1. Adam, so glad you’re doing this 🙂 It takes courage to share your innermost thoughts and feelings. Your self-awareness is admirable.

    From an outsider’s perspective, you’ve come a long, long way. And you will continue to do so with time. Time is key xxx
