Here’s Chris’s comment:
“It is impossible to use the tarot to give readings for yourself, unless it is a simple yes/no spread, and still you won’t really understand it except for the yes/no side of it.” Will you elaborate on this, Denise? I give myself readings on occasion, as do several of my “psychic”/”6th sensory” friends. I’ve always found my own readings to be very insightful, accurate and helpful. ‘Impossible’ seems to be an off-the-mark adjective? Difficult perhaps? But impossible? Just looking for clarification. Also, I’m wondering, surely along with many others, when do you see life becoming less of a struggle for most of us? My gut tells me it’s going to be awhile, which is a strong contradiction to the last eight years or so of my life’s activities for the path I’m on. While I have read each of your entries word for word, some more than once, I’ve not seen a mention of when the new lifestyles we will all ENJOY (yes, that’s right, all of what’s going on is for the better) might settle into a sustainable routine for the majority of mankind, globally? Mid to late 2011 is what my gut seems to be indicating. Yours?
Thanks for your post.
Certainly, my statement is hyperbole. I have done readings for myself as you mentioned so have my psychic friends. However it is really, really hard to interpret and not the same as getting a reading from someone else. The closest thing to get an objective reading in that way, that I’ve found is with the Medicine Cards. That’s really what I was trying to say. Yes/No spread of course is the easiest to delineate, clear, concise and not open for interpretation, it takes the subjectiveness out of what can be a maze in terms of interpretation for the Rider-Waite based tarot.
In answer to the second part of your question, yes, around the end of 2011 beginning of 2012, although I feel the worst of it will be felt the next couple of years. I do feel it will be a lifestyle shift for all of us for the better, one we were in desperate need for. I feel many of us will learn to cherish things that are truly important and be better for it.
Best wishes to all and many blessings,
