The Devil. Death. The Tower. The Hanged Man. The Five of Pentacles. The Ten of Swords. The entire suit of Swords, for that matter! These are often the most difficult cards in the tarot. We want to keep a positive attitude, but these cards can drag us down. How do we read them? It's easy to read any of these cards by saying, "Wow! Thank goodness that nastiness is at an end. Let's move on to better things, shall we?" And in many ways that has some truth to it. But the more we understand these cards and their many layers of meaning, the more accurate our readings can become and the more honest we can be with ourselves and the people we read for.
Please join us for discussion of and practice with the difficult cards in the deck. We'll explore the positive side of the cards, the neutral indications, and how to compassionately and truthfully approach the negative meanings found here. And we'll see how a difficult reading can spur us toward a better path.
