Tarot Journaling


Guest post by Bonnie Cehovet

Writing

It is the beginning of a new calendar year – an excellent time to talk about starting a journal. Journals can be dedicated to many purposes – what I am talking about here is creating a living picture, in words, of the coming year as you live it. This journal will be about you, as seen through the lens of the Tarot. Why do you want to do this? Is journaling a magic pill? Does your life go better if you journal? Why Journal?

The Devil on my shoulder wants me to say “Why the heck not!” As a writer, writing is fun. It is how I express myself, and is a huge part of my life. Even for a non-writer, there are definite benefits to journaling, one of which is that it moves you outside of yourself, and allows you to grow as a person. This is also where the Tarot comes in – as your words form the picture story of your life, the Tarot acts as a lens through which you can interpret people and events.

Psychosynthesis Tarot Spread


A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to have a psychological Tarot reading by my good friend Zorian Cross, author of the excellent Tarot blog, the Tarot Quest. I was totally blown away by this reading, and not just the Tarot spread, which probed deep into my psyche, but by the way Zorian reads Tarot. He is amazing, his skills are exceptional and I can’t rave enough about him. Seek him out and buy a reading from him – I absolutely guarantee you will be as astounded as I was.

The reading itself was done on Skype through instant messaging and while I’ve edited out a lot of our conversation – we can talk for England about anything, I’ve kept the format of our back and to conversation to give you a flavour of how the reading developed and, despite this being a very personal reading for me (why am I always bearing my soul?), it remains chatty and lighthearted.
