Friend of mine bought himself this tarot deck. Said he hadn’t had a reading in a while and has never used this deck before. So tonight he picked me up, I bought him coffee and gave him a reading. This deck I was not previously familiar with but was very intrigued. I did the basic reading, past, present and future. The booklet has very detailed in-depth descriptions on what the cards represent. After doing his reading, and almost getting a charlie-horse in my hand from writing out the descriptions, I decided to do my own. (I cheated and took photos of my descriptions)
Here’s my reading:
The massive awakening or change I made was the decision to have weight loss surgery. I had what’s called a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. I have been struggling most of my life with my weight, body image and became a food addict at a young age. (another story for later)
It was the best decision I made in my entire life. I was unhappy and unhealthy. I worked so hard to get to where I am now. You can see the difference it made and how it’s impacted my life. I’m still struggling with my food addiction, but I can see how hard I worked and how much better I am despite the struggles I’m still going through.
February 3, 2014, right before going on the operating table:
A before picture, a concert I went to in 2012, and then 2.5 months out of surgery in 2014:
Since most of my life surrounds darkness, this card is reminding me that I see the light within my darkness. I’m trying to gain positive energy, by the small things around me, and by helping others as I help myself. By giving, and letting myself receive (mostly hugs!). By learning mindfulness and meditation to help conquer the negative and bring back to the present and focus on the positive.
This could mean new relationships are coming, and current ones are beginning to grow and prosper. Those with my co-workers as my chosen family, who check in and care about my well-being as I do for theirs. As I’m learning how to have a relationship with myself I can bring that to any further relationships I have whether it be with friends, “family” (blood or otherwise) and/or romantic.
This reading is pretty accurate, and looking positive. I can’t wait to see what else comes my way. I also can’t wait to give someone else a reading, as I enjoy making others feel good about themselves too, especially if they’re going through a tough time in their lives.
