When you do a future reading now and then, you are in good company. For centuries people have pulled tarot cards. It all started somewhere in the Middle Ages. At first, they used the tarot for gambling, but soon uses prediction and introspection came up. It worked back then, because living a Medieval life was dangerous with wars, illnesses and famines raging. Since a hundred years ago, the emphasis has been on introspection. The tarot is still known to tell us our future.
In this series of blogs, I share techniques and examples of Tarot Readings to help you develop as a reader. I also share channelings I do to help you align more easily to a purposeful life.
Over the last couple of months, I’ve drawn the Queen of Wands about ten times. After similar experiences in the past, I know Soul has big lessons in store when it keeps reminding me about a lesson in feminine leadership I’m learning by showing one card over and over. It’s as if Soul tells me: “Hey, hello! I’m trying to catch your attention! Hello!!” So I did an automatic writing session to find out what she was trying to tell me. Read more
When you interpret tarot cards, you rely heavily on your subconscious. This means that we don’t understand how reading cards works.

In 2004, I wrote my first tarot book. It got great reviews, but you have probably never noticed it because it was a Dutch book, and you may not be fluent in it 😉. Thousands of people still learn about tarot with my book. The way I teach tarot is not the only way. I love other people’s techniques because I learn a lot about them. But I have three pet peeves that I want to discuss with beginning and advanced tarot readers. Read more
Over the last few years, I have noticed how my inner conversation, a.k.a. my limiting beliefs, has stolen the show – MY show. It played a role in my old business, it played a role in the eating disorder, and it played a role in my author’s journey.
Overcoming obstacles in my author’s journey has become the most significant goal this year. I thought I only had to hit the Publish button, but it turned out to be so much more. Read more
I was scrolling through my collection of tarot spreads on my Pinterest Boards when I found a spread for a conversation with my Future Self. You can find it in the board Spreads Future in the Tarot & Oracle Spreads board. You can find over a thousand examples there.
I can’t give credit for this spread because Pinterest blocked the source. Luckily they didn’t block the image because I did a great reading with it. It got up close and personal. Read more
As a long-time reader, I sometimes take the theories around the cards for granted. I no longer question my frame of mind, at least not like I used to do when I just began reading cards. That is why I want to talk to you about the woowoo I often see around the tarot. Read more
Now and then, I answer a tarot question. This time, it is something that worries my clients: “Can I change a prediction by tarot cards?”
