Steemit Tarot Tuesday Blog Graphic for the week of May 8th, 2018.jpg

So, you know that introductory post for Steemit Tarot that I've been meaning to put together since forever ago? Well, guess what...


Here it is -

Introducing the Steemit Tarot community!

And don't forget to check out the feed over at @steemittarot or the hash tag #tarottuesday for other awesome offerings from amazing Steemians!

Now here's my reading for the upcoming week (beginning today, May 8th, 2018) ...

Happy Tarot Tuesday, Steemians!

Here's a brief bit on how I put this reading together every week -

I use my very old & extremely well-loved Universal Waite Smith Tarot Deck to draw the cards. Then, because the cards are definitely not ready for their closeup, I photograph the cards using my stand-in Radiant Deck. Oh, and yes - it's a new picture of the back of the cards every week.


Now the reading works like this - pick the card (or cards) that you're drawn to, then scroll to the bottom of this post for the card reveal and my short interpretation of what to expect in the upcoming week. If more than one strikes your fancy, go for it! In fact, I've been told there are some who pick all three cards each week, and use this as a mini past/present/future reading! 😊

Now that you've picked your card (or cards), you just scroll to the bottom of the post for the big reveal.

And as you're scrolling through, please enjoy this incredible original song from magical musician @isaria. I actually had another song of hers (Slide) set up as the Jeopardy music for this post, but then I caught this piece Sunday night on the The Steemit Creative Curation Show with Shane and Isaria. It just resonated on so many levels for me that I knew I had to use it instead! Bonus - it's not past post payout (hint... hint... LOL!).

As she didn't include the lyrics in her post, here's a bit of backstory on how the song was written -

"Sometimes I compose music in my dreams. It's usually a dream where
I'm listening to a song and wishing that I wrote it...then I wake up and realize
that I did write it lol.

I generally wake up from this type of dream at around 4 AM and have to force
myself to get up to record the idea before I forget it.
Sometimes I'm too lazy to get up...or I have 5 cats sleeping on me and I can't get up.
But, most times I actually make it out of bed.

I have a ton of these little dream music ideas recorded on my phone
and sometimes I turn them into songs.

Broken is one of those songs.
I dreamed of the melody:
"Do you believe in love?"
"Do you believe in me?"

I heard those 2 lines over and over in a dream. When I woke up, it was so clear
in my mind and sounded so familiar to me that I was sure it was already a song
in existence." ~ excerpt from Broken // One Of My Original Dream Songs by @isaria


Wasn't that amazing! Okay, now it's time for the big card reveal (and what a MAJOR reveal it is!). Your message is...

Drum roll, please and thank you

1. The Hanged Man

Let go. Sometimes when you struggle to untie a knot, the more you pull at it, the tighter it gets. You’ve been tugging at a rope (an argument, a relationship, a situation) trying to get it untangled, but it’s only making things worse. Now it’s time to surrender, at least for a little while. Decide not to decide. Let things be for now. Do as the late, great John Lennon did when he was, "just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round, I really love to watch them roll. No longer riding on the merry-go-round, I just had to let it go." You might even find that when you stop pulling, the knot releases on its own.

2. The Empress

Mother of all creation. This is the ultimate mother - caring, nurturing, and pregnant with possibilities. You are about to give birth (figuratively speaking, and regardless of gender) to a marvelous creation - a piece of art, a project at work, an idea to make your life so much simpler. This may also mean that the Universe has seen your struggles, recognizes all the hard work you've done, and is arranging a serendipitous turn of events that will feel like a great big cosmic hug. Oh, and sometimes when I see this card, I can hear Eric Draven saying (as he quotes William Makepeace Thackeray), "Mother is the name for God on the lips and hearts of all children."

3. The Magician

You can create it. You’re powerful. Whatever the problem or issue is that you’ve been having, you have the the tools to solve it right at your fingertips. Don’t give away your power – claim it, use it, and you will be unstoppable. And while I know it might seem like a strange comparison, whenever I get this card, it reminds me to invoke my inner Dark Willow. Not in an "bringing about the Apocalypse out of sheer grief" kind of way - more of a "channeling the magic and tapping into your inner badass."

Oh my! Three majors!

And I picked The Empress, which I'd only posted about last night... shameless post promotion :p

Curiouser and curiouser....

Thanks for this #tarottuuesday post!

Yep, I saw that post a little while ago - cool curiouserness! And when I first drew these 3 cards I was like...



Well done! You have received a 38.46 % upvote from @litasio thanks to: @t-a-r-o-t. Whoop!

I'm a little this week! I've lost a day somewhere. Where did it go??? Picked the empress this time. Love love love your reading! It's wicked positive!

It's all that traveling. How does the saying go? "If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium" or something like that? LOL! So glad you loved it, and thank you very much!

Haha! For sure! We ended up staying for a couple of extra days. The weather's been great and we have a site that's really close to the ocean.

Sounds (and since I've seen Sheila's post, looks) heavenly! 😊

It is definitely a 3 day for me, @traciyork! Great reading. Highly auspicious for me on this very day!

Happy Tarot Tuesday!

Wicked awesomesauce, @intuitivejakob! Brightest of blessings to you today! 😊

Loved my card. It's so fitting for where I am today. Thank you!

YAY! I'm so glad, @lifeisartsandy, and you're very welcome! 😊

I chose 1 and 2, and while I know it's for fun, they were both very applicable! Especially number 1!

That's wicked awesome, @sweetpea!

Manomanomanoman. Strong two with a lil one. And bang on.

LOL! And niiiiice!

Such a quality post. Thank you for introducing me to The Magician, I have some unresolved stuff which I have left hanging about like a little gray cloud in the back of my consciousness.... time to tackle it head on...

Thank you. Given your moniker, I'm surprised the two of you haven't met before. And sounds like an excellent plan - best of luck cloudbusting.

I just lurve Kate Bush ..... just in case you think I am not acquainted with the wee lass.. :)


I figured, given your love of music, you'd be familiar with her. 😊

Oh, WOW (pun intended) - what an awesome post about her! I actually quote the song with her and Peter in one of my Tarot definitions, and it happened to be my daily draw for yesterday (or was it the day before?)

Here's my interp for the Five of Pentacles -

You are not alone. You’re lost. You’ve had a bunch of setbacks, and you feel like you have nothing left. No worries – there is help available, right around the corner, but you have to swallow your pride and ask. Things will be better soon, and you’ll know who your true friends are. As Kate Bush said to Peter Gabriel, “Don’t give up ’cause you have friends. Don’t give up you’re not the only one. Don’t give up no reason to be ashamed. Don’t give up you still have us. Don’t give up now we’re proud of who you are. Don’t give up you know it’s never been easy. Don’t give up ’cause I believe there’s a place, there’s a place where we belong.”

Awesome @traciyork... I just love that song to bits. Is an interp for a card sort of your permanent thing. So that interpretation is constant every time the card is drawn... or do things change when drawn alongside or juxtaposed to another card? I just curious .... may need to spend some time on the 'tarot' tag....

Yes. And no. 😂

I have an almost complete (missing maybe a half dozen) set of interpretations I've written for the 78 cards in my RWS deck. I essentially use those for my weekly posts, but they do change here and there, depending on my whim (and motivation). But because I present these as single draws, I don't change them based on the other cards for that week.

However, in doing a regular Tarot reading, yes - the meanings of the cards will change depending on the location in the reading, and the cards around it. The Tarot tag has a number of tutorials, card interps, and such. I've been meaning to put together a curation post kind of thing, pointing to some general info posts... one of these days... in my copious free time... 😜

Ok, thanks for the comprehensive answer. I am going to steer my sister towards the tarot tag, she will enjoy it..... she will feel right at home {smile}

You're very welcome, and - oooo! Coolness!

I'm going to give birth to a marvelous creation, huh? Well, I guess I better get to work then. I gottsa create something amazing!

LOL! Happy creating!

Awww thanks so much for sharing my song!!!

You're very welcome! Fair warning - I'll probably "steal" others in the weeks to come... LOL!

THE MAGICIAN! This card came up in my reading too! <3

Wicked cool, @teneiced! I have your post up, and plan to listen to it shortly - can't wait!
