Getting out of a Slump
Reading Type: Self-Doubt
Question or Concern: I am a tarot
reader. I am suddenly filled with self doubt, and I am re-evaluating
everything to do with tarot. Can u please tell me how to get out
of this slump??
Deck Used: Universal Waite (illustrated
by Pamela Coleman Smith)
Spread Used: You/Obstacle/Next
To start with, re-evaluating everything to do
with tarot seems an excellent way to get out of a slump. I assume
that your self-doubt is about yourself as a tarot reader. Personally,
I recommend the ATA American Tarot Association as a great organization
for learning about the tarot.
I did a three card you/obstacle/next step spread for you. I pulled
the Ace of wands, The Fool, and the 3 of wands. To me, the wands
are a masculine symbol. You are masculine, practical, exoteric side
is beginning some sort of growing process. Tarot is highly intuitive
and esoteric. Have you recently begun a new career or relationship
that has you acting in a new and different way? Did something change
in your life that is changing your paradigm?
The Fool indicates, again, the beginning of a
path or process. Did you really study the tarot before doing readings?
Or perhaps, you need to re-evaluate the card meanings. Are the meanings
you are used to just not working anymore?
The 3 of wands indicates exploration, searching;
like Christopher Columbus setting sail through uncharted ocean.
You will find whatever it is you are searching for.
This reading indicates 2 choices to me: 1, that you should put down
the tarot for a while and thoroughly explore whatever is happening
in your exoteric, everyday life. Or 2, that you should continue
exploring the esoteric, internal mysteries of the tarot with a new
exoteric, externalized vision.
The tarot shows how the future could be based on the present. Your
future is yours to create.
