Here’s another interactive spread. Before the reading, take out all the major arcana cards and reflect on what major arcana card corresponds to your problems, challenges, goals or anything in particular in your life. You can even use all 22! Or you can use one!…
Card of the Day is Justice! The deck pictured is the Ellis Deck :D (so obsessed with this damn deck)
Constantine’s Card Tips
Do court cards stump you? Play a matching game with them. Match each court card to someone in your life, a character in a book or movie, or a celebrity - and explain why it fits. This is a great way to build new connections with your cards by associating them with people you know, interact with, or understand.
I’ve gotten much better at reading court cards but they still throw me sometimes, so I’m definitely gonna try this!!
9 of Cups
This is such a cute and happy making card. Makes sense, as the 9 of Cups is about fulfillment, happiness, and coming to balance. I was reading Biddy Tarot’s interpretations of the card, and this statement stood out to me:
The Nine of Cups is also about counting your blessings, living in the moment, and enjoying the good things that life has to offer. Start or end every day by creating a mental list of the three things you are most grateful for. You will find that over time, you indeed have a lot to be happy about and it may increase your feeling of deep contentment and fulfillment.
That’s something I think I needed to hear today.
And the deck is cuuuuute.
When you’re trying to do a reading and it doesn’t make any goddamn sense
On second thought, this is starting to make perfect sense.
That’s what usually happens to me when I read for myself. At first: omg this is bullshit. Then: ..oh. Okay. Yeah maybe.
my reaction when i learn that people shuffle tarot cards like playing cards
Don’t judge me.
Hey you! You stop that! They get shuffled so much better that way and if you just do the corners, it doesn’t kill the cards. Unless they’re gilded, then I can verify it will definitely at least maim them.
werd. dear god we MUST be twins <3
Ugh, fiiiiiine. :P Shuffle how you want, but it still bothers me a teeny bit simply because when I did it with one of my decks they got bent and stuff.
them tags though <3 hahahahaha
*aggressively shuffles tarot cards like playing cards*

Constantine’s Card Tips
It’s totally okay to buy your first tarot deck instead of waiting for someone to buy it for you. If you are drawn to a particular deck, check it out online; you can almost always find a few pictures of it before buying. Pick a deck that, when you look at the cards, evokes feelings, thoughts, ideas, etc.
Is buying your first deck a nono?
it’s suppose to be tradition to be given a deck for divination, but it certainly doesn’t have to be the only way to receive a deck as it doesn’t make sense for many people’s situations
Tell you what:
I volunteer as everyone’s Tarot Godmother.
If you find a deck you love, want to follow the Gift Tradition, but have no gift-giver, let me know.
I will give you your first tarot deck (or any other oracle for that matter).
this is a very sweet offering. <3 Even though I don’t believe it’s necessary for someone to gift you a deck, I find deck-gifting extremely sacred & beautiful. <3
If I had waited for someone to gift me a deck I’d still be waiting….
