WhitePages is taking the unusual step of buying out its venture capital investors, paying $80 million to buy back shares from Technology Crossover Ventures and Providence Equity.
It’s unclear what valuation was placed on WhitePages, which was founded in 1997 by Alex Algard as he was completing a summer internship on Sand Hill Road in Silicon Valley.
WhitePages is a people search directory and database with billions of people records, and Algard says they are trying to kill off the phone book.
Business Insider reports today that the 130-person company is on a revenue run rate of $60 million, with Algard saying that the venture investors wanted out of the deal and because of the cheap debt right now they were able to raise the money. John Cook is GeekWire's co-founder and editor, a veteran reporter and the longest-serving journalist on the Pacific Northwest tech startup beat.
This advice can be used for Oracle Card Readers, Angel Card Readers, Healers, Energy workers and many other Spiritual Entrepreneurial businesses as well. This also touches on pricing but it is important to note when you are mapping out what you are going to offer your Clients.
I have range in my business and each one of the offers I mentioned above gives my Clients different things and caters to what they are looking for. I don’t believe you can just have top heavy offers when you just start out and wonder why people aren’t buying from you.
People who do charge at higher rates have good track records, give a lot to their tribe and have built their businesses. Sometimes the thing that we think is going to be popular gets no traction and the one offer you thought was going to flop, sores.
I have more than 5 offers for my Clients but that has taken me years to refine and I have added and taken away as well.
Your offer has to HELP so getting clear on this can really aid you in sharing your work with the world. We sometimes have an idea of how many readings or healing sessions we want to do a week or how many teaching session but then when it comes to working day in and out your reality can shift a little. There are more questions I am sure you can answer but these are some that I feel are vital. There are tons of videos and articles about pricing for your readings, healings, classes, products and everyone has an opinion. I see a lot of people I honestly feel are undercharge and some are overcharging, but who the fuck cares it’s just my opinion. So for each of these offers you have to decide what all of those questions and your feelings lead you to put down on paper.

February 9, 2016 By Ethony Leave a Comment This is video two on my tips on how to get your Tarot business started. In this video, I am going to be talking about deciding on your business model and some of the options that you have available to you. One of your main choices will be whether you are you going to be a 100% online business or are you going to conduct your business in person. There is the thought that Etsy is the marketplace to be because of their already established followers and this can be true.
You can use a plugin on your site like Woocommerce and sell directly from your website or just set up buttons. There are so many opportunities here although the profit on products can be low and the expense to get them done (considering what it is and how you are going to do it) can be very high.
For face to face work I accept payments via cheque, direct deposit, square reader and cash. A lot of businesses need a face to face aspect for their Clients but there are always way to integrate online revenue streams into your business.
The best thing I ever did was have my Tarot Business as a side hustle while I worked full time. Then when I was ready I was able to transition into working as a Tarot Reader, Coach and Teacher full time and invest in creating my Decks!
I have created a little workbook for you which you can it HERE to give you some ideas and inspiration for your business. If you are running a business or about to launch a Spiritual business I would like to invite you to join me on the 20th of February for a Mastermind Training session. This advice can be used for Oracle Card Readers, Angel Card Readers, Healers and Energy workers as well.
For me I knew, I knew my craft well enough to start reading for others when I didn’t need to reference any book for my readings, when I found a consistent flow, when feedback was positive and resonate for the people I read for. I still read Tarot books, I’m still learning and adding to my tool kit but I am proficient in my craft and I know my sh*t.
If you want to do a course or get certified by a trainer then there are a lot of courses out there, the one on my academy included.
As mentioned before, there are a lot of certifications out there, including the one that my academy has and I pride myself on that certification because of the one on one time I put in with each student. If you write down, I only have one Tarot deck and that’s not enough or I need a $10k website to be a professional then I call popicock and also there is something else under all of those excuses as to why you are keeping yourself from starting. This one will make a few people groan and the law is not the most exciting subject for many people but it is important. You will have to consider things like taxes, insurance, liability and finding out if you have the right disclaimers on your site. There are even some places in the world where reading Tarot is illegal so do your research. It is a huge subject and I am not a lawyer so make sure you consult the professionals for advice. January 29, 2016 By Ethony Leave a Comment I came to find The Moon Deck and their Indiegogo Campaign through a fellow Tarot Tribe member on Instagram and wanted to share this deck with as many people as possible. I am so pleased to welcome the three lovely women to share their experiences and journey with creating the deck. We are three New York yogis passionate about helping women embrace their cyclical nature and intuitive powers. Ashley was born by the sea among the redwoods of California, raised in the Texas Hill Country and is a diehard New Yorker of ten years.
The desire to create my own healing deck was born out of my life-long love of words and art; and in particular the healing insights that tarot readings and divination and affirmation decks have always helped me with on my own journey. After years of struggle with mild depression, overthinking my way into anxiety, and being a highly sensitive gal, I’ve found that healthy and creative outlets were a life-saving and necessary tool for my personal and spiritual development.
Writing a book and deciding which mantras to use was also a deep challenge – both because of the discipline required and because we didn’t want to leave anything out!
Also, working with such close friends has been equally rewarding and challenging – it’s been amazing, bonding, and of course highly reflective. Aarona: For me my work, my wellbeing, my spirituality and my passion projects are very much wrapped into one. Aarona:  I’ve wanted to create a healing deck since 2009 and knew that somehow it would happen. There will be some surprises throughout the month with giveaways given to participating lovelies. I love doing Full Moon Tarot Specials this month so here is what you get for January 2016 for that powerful Full Moon in Leo!!
One Question Tarot Reading – Complete with custom Tarot Spread created by me for your situation and question. As always your reading comes with suggested Crystals you can work with and Journal Prompts all in a lovely PDF with beautiful photos of your reading. January 14, 2016 By Ethony Leave a Comment Rebecca and I connected through a MasterMind group that we were both part of and I recognised someone who was SO on my level. We will be connecting again for something special later on in 2016, which I am so excited about and she has sone wonderful projects in the pipeline for this year. I grew up in Cornwall in the UK, where the beach was my playground, and I now live in the lush, green countryside. I run a company called Your SHEro’s Journey that guides women back home to themselves, so that they can reconnect to their intuition and their magic, bringing them to a place of wholeness. At the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey one of the biggest blocks that kept coming up for me was my relationship with money and abundance. I could feel there was an energetic pattern that was playing out for me, but I couldn’t quite ‘see’ it.
I’d had energy work, tried tapping, journaling and of course all the exercises given to me by the coaches, but I still felt limited. Many times I’d turned to my various oracle and tarot cards to offer me guidance and although it gave me some insight, it never felt complete. One day I was on holiday in Cornwall, we were staying in a hotel overlooking a beautiful, long beach. At first I was slightly taken a back, but I knew this was one of the times that I had to listen and act. They were in fact the cards that I had always wanted to support me heal my patterns with money and abundance. I had created summaries for all of the cards under a super full moon and all the information had come flowing out beautifully and with ease. It’s like I had to really dive deep into each card and heal any remaining patterns that were there and surrender to being led by the cycles of Mother Nature and the individual SHEroes themselves.
In the tarot one of my favourite cards is The Star and its association with one of my favourite goddesses Ishtar. I’m actually working on another oracle deck, this one is based on the energies and cycles of the moon.
January 7, 2016 By Ethony 4 Comments I have talked before about what I do to energetically and physically prepare for a reading and what protections I use so now I am going to give you a little guide of suggestions for after your Tarot Readings are complete. After you have finished your Tarot readings whether it is one reading or a full day it is important to ground yourself, bring your energy back into yourself and center. Even breathing in and out deeply while seeing your energy come back into yourself is better than not doing anything. If you are in the TRA Academy class you have access to the guided visualisation that I use for this. So there are my tips and personal practices that I use when it comes to close out a reading. In the Big Think video below, cognitive psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman talks about two kinds of passion – harmonious and obsessive.
Harmonious passion is when we’re engaged in an activity that’s healthfully integrated into our identity and makes us feel good about ourselves.
Though we can certainly get things done with obsessive passion, it’s harmonious passion that’s more likely to lead to creative insights, not to mention an overall sense of well-being. Kaufman’s description got me thinking about Tarot and what cards in the Suit of Wands (the suit of passion) might indicate either harmonious or obsessive passion. With the Five, there’s a sense that passions are flaring, creating a situation where people are pitted one against another, and a win can only be achieved through the defeat of someone else.
With the 10 of Wands, there’s a sense that our passions are leading us, but that the load is heavy. To hear what Kaufman has to say, take a look at the video below, and if you’ve got a Tarot deck handy, take a look for yourself and see what cards you think might describe harmonious and obsessive passion best. Here’s another interesting short video on mindfulness meditation that reminds us how to do it, and why we should. Back in 1991, Helen Sharman became the first Briton to go to space, and in the video she talks about what that was like, as well as describing a recurring dream she has about her voyage. It’s all about that wonderful feeling of being absolutely smitten by someone, wanting to gaze into their eyes, and fall deep into their soul, a soul you’re sure is the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen. Take a listen to Bill Nye in the Big Think video below as he tackles that very issue … What is the Evolutionary Benefit of Infatuation? MIT’s Danny Hillis and his amazing colleagues are building a clock that will last 10,000 years and chime a different song every single day. In Tarot, the Sun card focuses on themes surrounding optimism, joy, enlightenment, and happy conclusions, all things that make life good. In the video below, put together by Michael Konig using images from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, you can see the actual sun, the celestial entity that literally keeps our world alive. Take a look … though it’s got nothing to do with Tarot, it’s pretty amazing (to say the least).
Though Astronaut Ron Garan doesn’t mention Tarot’s Universe card in the video below, his orbital perspective is definitely worth listening to.
In Tarot, the Star card often indicates hope, renewal, optimism, and a welcome respite after some sort of difficulty.
From a scientific perspective, stars are massive balls of energy that ultimately created us all. If, like I did, you missed the lunar eclipse on April 15th, you might want to take a look at this time-lapse video called Lunar Odyssey by Andrew Walker. Keeping on with the science theme from yesterday, today we have a very amusing video from Psychic Bunny, which recreates a psychological experiment from 1944.
In the video below, the Heider-Simmel experiment is recreated using improv actors from LA’s Groundlings and the Upright Citizens Brigade as subjects, each of whom are asked to watch the short film and describe what’s going on.
Given that card reading seems to (at least partly) involve this same area of the human psyche, I’m intrigued by the experiment. According to Tarot historian Tom Tadfor Little, traditional playing cards were first seen in Europe in 1375, having been brought over from the Islamic societies where they had been used for centuries before that. It wasn't until 1440 that the cards that were most likely the origin of Tarot cards were first mentioned. There are many varieties of Tarot decks, and there is no standard number of cards across all decks. Seeing a Major Arcana card about a particular subject in one reading and then getting a Minor Arcana card about the same subject in the next reading would mean that this subject is becoming less important in your life. General: In general, this card would indicate new beginnings that have some deeper spiritual meaning - for example, starting a meditation practice or a relationship, as opposed to buying a new pair of shoes.
Love: The appearance of the Fool in the context of love could mean that you aren't ready for a commitment yet, even though others may be pressing you for one.
Introduction: The Magician is about making higher - and better - use of all of one's power. Love: If you are in the market for a new romance, this is a time when you are likely to meet someone new. Finances: Money should be on the upswing when this card appears - even if no feasible way for this to happen is apparent at the time you do your reading.
Spirituality: This is an excellent time for you to undertake some form of spiritual study that you've thought about in the past but haven't had the opportunity to pursue.
Hidden Meanings: This is a time to rely on your intuition and your inner knowledge, rather than your conscious mind or intellect.
General: This is a time to rely on your intuition and your inner knowledge, rather than your conscious mind or intellect. Work: It's possible that a pleasant surprise will be coming your way soon in regard to work. Love: This is a potent time for love, you may find that men and women alike are suddenly finding you far more attractive (both in terms of friendship and romance,) and you will want to be careful with how you use this power, as it's very potent. Finances: This card shows an excellent time to make investments, follow your instincts about them.
Spirituality: Your intuition may well be trying to send you a message during this time also.
Introduction: The Emperor shows us that domination of the mind over the heart is sometimes not wanted, but in some cases is it necessary and even welcomed, and that this is part of what we must think about when he appears. Finances: This card shows a need for discipline, logic, and order to make your finances work better for you. Spirituality: Be sure to take time out for yourself in order to honor your need for spiritual growth. General: This is also a card that is very much about spirituality - everything from traditional religion to earth-centered spirituality and any other spiritual notion that you can conceive of. Finances: This is a time to play by the rules and to use down-to-earth, normal, traditional ways to handle your money. General: It's possible when this card appears that you are feeling ambivalent about a relationship or situation in your life.
Love: When this card appears, it usually means this time is likely to bring LOVE in capital letters to the center stage of your life. Health: If you are facing health challenges, know that the right partner to help you get back to wholeness will come to you.
Spirituality: Again, working with a special person, like a mentor or leader that you have faith in can help you along your spiritual journey. General: In general this card points to determination and ambition, getting things done, and testing and proving what you've got. Work: In terms of work, it's important to not let small issues blow out of proportion in your mind. Spirituality: You may travel (even locally) to places that can help increase your spiritual awareness, and you will be in a mode where you learn a lot quite quickly about spiritual matters. Introduction: Strength indicates the importance of mind over matter, and reminds you to focus on what you do want rather than what you don't want in your life. General: It's important now for you to make time to meditate and contemplate and spend some time alone even if you are in a committed relationship and have nineteen children!
Love: Love should be going very well - if you're committed, this is very likely to be a strong relationship that is mutually supportive and beneficial.
Spirituality: This is likely to be a very spiritual time for you even if you don't have anything close to a religious belief.
Introduction: The Hermit is an extremely spiritual card, and often has to do with institutions and large organizations - everything from a bank to the entire Christian Church. General: Just like with the Strength card, you may even more so be in the frame of mind that you need some time alone - don't be afraid to take it. Work: You are nearing the point where work success and recognition are well within your grasp.
Finances: This is a time to be conservative when it comes to financial transactions and decisions, not that money seems to be your highest priority when the Hermit appears anyway. Introduction: The Wheel of Fortune tells you that in general, it looks as though things are changing. Work: It's very possible that you will decide to leave your job if you are currently working, even if it's a good job, because your heart is no longer in it. Love: It's possible that a relationship needs to be re-negotiated or is possibly no longer going to suit your needs. Finances: In the financial sense the Wheel of Fortune is generally a good omen for anyone who has been having a rough time for a while financially. Spirituality: It's important to be aware that in nearly all instances, we do make a contribution in some way to what is happening in our lives. Introduction: Justice deals with the idea of karma and the law of cause and effect, stating that all events, and all people, are connected.
Love: If you are questioning whether you and your long-term partner are likely to stay together, often when this card appears, the answer is that you are likely to choose to go your separate ways. General: It's possible that there is an outdated attitude or wish that you need to let go of. Health: You may change your mind radically about something that you think is wrong with you physically. Love: If you are clinging to a relationship that you are deeply unhappy in because you don't want to let go of the familiar, or because you hate to be alone, you are doing neither yourself nor your partner any favors. Health: Keeping your stress level manageable is a must in order to stay in good health now. Introduction: Temperance is a card about balance, in many ways, and relationships of all kinds.
General: Although in general all your relationships are likely to be going quite well, you may need to look at your deeper personal issues and see if or how these are standing in your way.
Work: Aim high, but don't have expectations of yourself or others that you or they can't possibly meet. Love: Often, before you can really have peace and wisdom in you relationships, you need to have peace with yourself.


Finances: There is likely to be a good balance between what is going out and what is coming in. Spirituality: This is an important time to meditate and to listen to your inner voice for guidance, and if you need help, to ask for it.
Introduction: The Devil is not as frightening a card to interpret as the depiction on most cards indicates. General: It's important for you to remember that no matter what your situation, which you always have options to choose from. Work: You may very well feel trapped in a job that you detest but can't see your way clear to leave because of the security. Love: If you're in a long-term romantic relationship, one or both parties may have gotten to the point where they feel as though they are trapped in the situation.
Health: This is a time that you need to watch out for being overworked, overtired, and over-stressed.
Love: This can be (but is not necessarily) an indicator of a relationship that is about to end.
Finances: This is not a time for risky investments, gambling, or counting on the lottery to make things work out for you.
Introduction: When the Star appears, you are likely to find yourself feeling rather inspired. Love: This is an excellent time to meet someone new if you are in the market for a new relationship. Spirituality: You are so in touch with your spirituality now that this is a great time for you to reach out to others, and to share your wisdom and your joy. General: You are definitely in a more psychic and intuitive phase than usual, so it will be important for you to trust your instincts and your impressions, even if you don't know where they are coming from. Finances: If you're waiting on financial decisions that need to be made by others, the appearance of this card can imply that you'll need to wait longer. Spirituality: This is a very spiritual time and a great time to get a reading, healing work, or other helpful input from spiritual types.
Introduction: When the Sun card shows for you, it's a sign that soon you are likely to find yourself feeling freer than you have in a while - maybe years. Work: If you're looking for a new job, this card can signify that it's right around the corner for you.
Love: This is a time, if you are in a committed relationship, when both you and your beloved may be in more than usual need of space. General: In general, if you are the one tending to jump to conclusions, you can put a stop to it. Health: This is an important time to let go of the past and any wrongs that you perceive were done to you, particularly if you are dealing with chronic medical issues.
Spirituality: You may find yourself exploring ideas and spiritual directions that you never thought would appeal to you in the slightest. Introduction: The World can signify that you are figuratively feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders, which is not an easy place to be.
Work: In terms of work, there's a very good chance that you are working far too hard for far too little recognition and money.
Spirituality: You are likely to have several clear flashes of important spiritual insights during this time. The most important thing to remember while shuffling is to concentrate only on the seeker's question, or on giving the seeker a reading that he or she needs & wants. Different sources recommend different methods, for example some advice letting the seeker shuffle the deck, or to turn some cards upside down while shuffling. 3.) If you decide to cut the deck as a reader, cut it into three piles, again dividing it in places that seem like the right spots to break the deck for this particular seeker.
4.) Ask the seeker to choose which of the 3 piles feels right to him or her, to start the reading.
5.) Starting from the top of the chosen pile, lay the cards out in order of the layout used (see below for some basic Layouts). Some claim the Celtic Cross is the most powerful spread used in Tarot, because it's the one used most often, and its frequent use generates some sort of collective energy around it. Celtic Cross, version 1 The Celtic Cross has a few different variations, most centered around how the cards are dealt around the first card.
1.) The first card laid on the table represents the seeker, the starting point, or the immediate circumstances of the seeker. 2.) The second card is laid over the first card because it represents the immediate influences over the seeker (or whatever the first card represents).
3.) This card is placed above the central cross in the reading, because it represents that which the seeker is reaching for. 4.) This card is placed below the central cross because it represents the roots or foundation of the seeker. 7.) This represents the seeker's inner attitude and disposition, and perhaps his or her relation to the issue at hand.
9.) This could represent the hopes and fears of the seeker, or outside influences and the seeker's outer image.
I've found that seekers always understand the message as the card meanings and positions are explained. Impressions: If you follow me on any social media you will know that I am slightly in love with this deck. They are a photography and digital art Tarot deck with beautiful pastel colourings and stunning sacred geometry images. The Guidebook is a nice size and has a STACK of information in it which as also been written by Danielle. The card stock is beautiful and the finish makes the cards lovely to shuffle, even if they are larger than the standard Tarot Deck. This deck may be a little tricky for beginners as there are a number of cards that do not have any figures in them along with the Major Arcana has been changed for some of the cards. I chosed the Star card from the Mythic Tarot, because it brings us the myth of Pandora's Box. The Mythic Tarot is a beautiful deck inspired in the greek mythology It was created by Juliet Sharman-Burke and Liz Greene, and illustrated by Tricia Newell. TCV and Providence invested in WhitePages in 2005, pumping $45 million into a company which had never taking venture capital during its first eight years. I use the Tarot as my main Spiritual Tool and run a Tarot Business so this is the perspective on which I speak. If you only have $500 products and you have not built a relationship with your Clients it can be REALLY hard to get them to trust you enough to part with that much money. Maybe it is possible to just offer offers that are over $200 and build a budding business however that has not been my experience.
You can use the information you have gathered to help you write your copy for your site or store. I for one know the value of my time, years and years of experience and my energy and I am not going to undercut myself. This spread can be used for an Full Moon in Virgo and you can use any Tarot or Oracle decks with this spread. I use the Tarot as my main Spiritual Tool and run a Tarot Business so this is the perspective from which I speak. This is not an exhaustive list in regards to where you can conduct business as there are too many to list in one post.
The benefit of learning WordPress is that once your site is up you can add content and change things like menus on your own. If you have a shoe string budget then I wouldn’t put myself into debt starting a business that I am not sure I could support. It was the best way for me to do what I loved, build my Client base and reputation and put money into my business because I had steady income coming in. It gave me security, time and capital and I wasn’t stressed about making money, I was just able to do what I love. It was a personal goal for me to know the meaning of the 78 cards, I wanted to know the meanings. If you feel good about what you are offering and the service you are delivering then you are on the right track. If you don’t feel ready address the reasons why you don’t feel ready or get some mentoring and have a professional help you bridge the gaps and give you some more confidence.
So embrace the spirit of Elle Woods from Legally Blonde and get your Harvard on, just for a moment. A great place to start is to check out this amazing post from Benebell Wen on conducting business online. She is passionate about and has created a career out of teaching yoga, writing, leading global adventure retreats.
I truly don’t know where I would be without yoga, meditation, women’s circles, and my library of oracle and affirmation decks. With illustrator Andrea Keh and strategist Ashley Bruni, we embarked on a deep and rewarding journey to actualize a shared vision of helping our sisters take ownership of their power and reimagine their lives. I’ve been amazed by the experiences students have when I share my favorite card decks in class.
We’ve never created a real life product before, so there has been a ton of learning every step of the way. Working with besties comes with the challenge of taking things more personally and coming up against obstacles in a different and more tender way. I love what I do, even with the ups and downs of being self-employed; it can be so personal which isn’t always easy. Personally, I use mantras to center myself and rewrite the stories in my mind, so now that I have all my favorite teachings in one place it’s much easier to connect with what I need! Write them down, meditate on them, and brainstorm with your favorite people who uplift and support you. Plus we want to grow our deck and its contents into other offerings and conscious products down the road (more soon :). Growing up in Cornwall I was surrounded by myths and magic and still to this day love mythology and storytelling.
I had developed eczema that had seemingly developed out of nowhere, and the energy medicine completely cleared my skin up, even after the Dr’s couldn’t. I’d invested ?1000’s with various money coaches, who basically told me the same things and gave me the typical exercises to do, but yet I still felt that there was something deeper going on. Although I had great abundance in my life and could earn well, I had always had trouble holding on to money or saving enough so that I felt fully financially secure. They shined a light on the patterns playing out and offered insight in how to re-balance the patterns to bring harmony.
I’d previously worked with a very talented and intuitive artist Simona Arian Cordara and knew she was the person to create the art work for the cards – and she was the perfect choice! The cards were created, and I had several decks printed, but I just couldn’t find the flow for the guide book. I love the image and maybe the idea of being supported is really appealing to me as a new(ish), first time mum! I love the vulnerability and strength of this card and knowing that we all have the power to transform and walk in both worlds.
If I’m making a decision, or creating something new I will draw on the wisdom of the cards.
Speak to your creativity and see how it best wants to come through – it might not be how you first imagined, so give it the space to grow. And in February I’m launching The SHEroes Cauldron, an online women’s circle, based on the principles of The Red Tent movement, which I’m very excited about as it brings together so much of what I love! You can thank your Spirit Guides, Angels, Ancestors if you have asked for them to be with you in your reading in any way that has meaning for you. I am not going to lecture you on drinking enough water (but you should be drinking water, put that energy drink down that shit is terrible for you). I try not to eat junk food after readings because it is not something that sits well with my body.
I found that after doing a full day of Tarot readings I can sometimes carry my Clients energy and experience around as I have a good memory.
It helps with keeping headaches and illness away and it is also good spiritual and personal hygiene. It’s the type of thing that makes us feel like we have to win at all costs, or there’s no value in playing at all.
When it appears in a reading it often points to the successful integration of one’s identity with one’s activities.
Passion, in this case, is raised through conflict and rivalry rather than an inner sense of enthusiasm or constructive curiosity. We may wish to put some tasks or activities down, but for reasons outside of ourselves, we feel we just have to keep at it. Here’s a wonderful little video brought to us by The Royal Institution and animated by Andrew Khosravani entitled The Dreams of an Astronaut with Helen Sharman. Floating in space must be quite a trip, and as one of the meanings of this card suggests, it certainly takes us to life’s next level. There were four suits with cards numbered one through ten and also court cards that included a queen, king, knight and page. They saw the symbolic pictures of the cards as having more meaning than the simple trump cards they were used for at the time.
While the types of cards, the suits and their meanings are the same, the illustrations vary greatly. The cards within these suits are numbered one through 10 and also include the court cards -- the king, queen, knight and page. You should be finding that you have the knowledge, strength, and inspiration needed to meet your challenges.
This points to an excellent time to find new work or to ask for and receive a promotion in your current job if that is possible.
If you're in a long-term relationship, the relationship will very likely seem to rise to new, deeper levels of commitment and enjoyment.
It can mean that the querent is in a phase where he or she is going to be much more physically attractive to others.
If you date women, you could well be interested in a woman who is distant and unapproachable.
If you feel that something is amiss with your body, believe in your concerns and advocate for yourself. She augurs a need for us to be in touch with our feminine side, to listen to our intuition, and to give priority to our emotions an passions.
This will be beneficial to you because you are now going to be able to see yourself more in the way that others see you - as someone with wisdom, and a lot to offer. When hard choices must be made it's important to maintain your concentration and focus, and this is something this time period will make it easy for you to do. Do not focus totally on your left-brained aspects (logic, reason, order,) but allow your right brain to have input too. If you have health challenges, discipline, order, and commitment - in whatever way that makes sense to you - is the way to go about it. Most things can wait, of course, but some things absolutely cannot so just be sure that you don't lose sight of the things you really must do. Whether that's a traditional doctor, nurse, or healer depends a great deal on your preferences and choice in life. When this card appears you are likely to be fairly clear on what your hopes and dreams involve, and what you are willing to do to get there. This is a sign that you should move forward with whatever you have in mind (and in your heart) and give it your best shot. There may be someone who is involved with your work who is (inadvertently or not) working against you. Either way, communicate as best you can about your boundaries and preferences, and be honest with yourself about the possibilities. You could be looking into purchasing something to do with transportation - a car, plane tickets to somewhere you have always wanted to go - anything of that nature. Don't be afraid to attend seminars and talks on spiritual subjects that seem unfamiliar to you or outside your usual mode of learning.
Its main point is that you have the ability to harness your thoughts and to use them for your - and everyone else's - highest good. If you're looking for work, know that you have the wherewithal and the skillset to find it.
Be sure to save some, even if it's only a little, and even if you've been doing without for quite some time and feel a desperate need to treat yourself or the people that you care about. This is a great time to correct bad habits if you need to do so in order to protect your health. To be truly strong, you must pay attention to and develop each leg of the triad we are made from: body, mind, and spirit.
In most cases, this indicates positive, needed changes but for some people, change itself is very difficult and can almost be traumatic. This does not mean that, if you are in a committed relationship, that it is doomed, but only that you will need to take action to make sure that it makes it. It's important to remember that not everything you are dealing with, however, is a direct result of your own actions or karma. On the other hand, if you are single, this is a time when commitment may be coming your way very shortly. Moderation is not just for monks, it's an important part of living a sensible and healthy life. This is a great time to figure out if there is anything that you personally can do about it, if this is the case, and if there is not an action that you can take, then try not to take the slowness of the wheels of change personally. If that's the case, know that there is someone nearby who would probably give their right arm to share that piece of bread with you. This is not a siren song to just ignore everything your doctor has told you, but give it some deep thought, do some research.
In fact, in general, it is considered irresponsible for readers to predict physical death, as we are creatures with free will, and such things are not written in stone.
Ultimately, this would lead to your "greater good," but wouldn't you rather leave on your own volition?
Have a frank and honest discussion about the problem(s) you have with the relationship, and if they can't or won't make a change or you can't or won't, then perhaps it's time to let it go.
Friendships, family, romantic partnerships, and work partnerships all need your attention. Consider whether or not the trade-offs are worth it; the truth of the matter is that in this day and age, very few jobs, pensions, etc.
If you're getting signals that this is the case, try to talk about it, if you want to save the relationship.
Just as with the Devil and Death, the Tower is not as frightening or as ominous as the pictorial representation in most decks.
This doesn't have to be dire; change is the nature of life, and trying to prevent it is like trying to row upstream without a paddle.
Even if you know the news will not be easy to stomach, find out exactly what you are dealing with financially.
You will be feeling more hopeful about the future, and more confident that your needs - whether these are emotional or financial needs or both - will be met.
You are probably already inclined to be thinking positively; this is a time to do so specifically. You may find it hard to understand where you are coming from, much less what others are thinking and feeling!
Also, not that you need to be mistrusting, but it will be helpful for you to realize that when this card appears, it's possible that all is not what it seems.
Ask questions and practice active listening to make sure that you and your co-workers understand each other perfectly. This is not a time to make business decisions based on anything other than absolute concrete fact. If a diagnosis (whether that's positive or negative) doesn't feel right, or you don't feel comfortable with your health care provider get a second opinion or a new provider.
You are more psychically open than usual now; pay attention to your thoughts and feelings, and to flashes of information that come seemingly out of nowhere.


However, even though finances are likely to be in good shape when this card appears, that does not mean that you should lose focus on what is truly important in life, and money is not very high on that list.
It's important, no matter what happens, to keep your ego under control and to share any credit for good work with those who work with you even if you did all or nearly all of the work!
If others are making these kinds of decisions about you or about someone you care for, there is really very little you can do, apart from realizing that it's their problem, not yours. This is a time to get very, very clear about what you want out of life and out of your relationships, and then take steps to make it come about.
You may be helped by finding a healer who works with something besides traditional Western Medicine.
In addition to structured layouts like the Celtic Cross, layouts can also be invented by a reader. Some claim that readings should always be done on a wooden table because wood reflects vibrational energy well. I never have the seeker do the actual shuffling, although I've found that the seeker always does a good job of choosing the correct pile in a cut deck. For example, if you feel you should only drop a few cards on one side of the deck, then put the remainder on the other side before continuing the shuffle, do that. I usually prefer to break the deck myself, but rely on my intuition to make that decision. Some readers prefer to lay the cards out face-down, then turn them over one at a time during the reading. Some readers don't vary from the Celtic Cross, thinking that other spreads won't produce a reading quite as accurate.
Sometimes this card is deliberately pulled from the deck by the reader or seeker, called the Significator card. It could be the influence of past events on the present, or something the seeker already has available to use. Again, some sources say that if the first card's face is looking in a certain direction, the 6th card should be on the side that the face is pointed toward. I've found that sometimes cards are grouped to complement each other, for example one seeker's past grouping contained a card showing a hard life (verified by the reader) grouped with the apprenticeship card, probably to indicate that past hard times were part of his education and conditioning, or perhaps that his training was able to save him from that hard life. They'll recognize significant information as it is presented, and divination will find its own techniques to get the message across.
I have been doing all of my Tarot Readings with this deck since I received it last week and I just adore reading with them. You are ready to move on to the next stage armed with this knowledge and as the figure in the card indicates you have both poise and balance for the journey ahead. They allow you to fine tune your craft and get any templates you need set up and testimonials are gold!
This is where a ton of people fall over and if it’s one area you find you are having difficulty then if you ever work with me I will hone onto this like it’s hidden chocolate in my apartment. The deck comes with a Guidebook and a lovely wooden box and is extremely thoughtfully created. Aarona has a deep love for the energy and wisdom of both nature and urban settings, and divides her time between the two throughout the year. She is the Director of Brand Strategy for The New School (a progressive university in Manhattan). Over the last 20-plus years, these tools have helped me become a more integrated and whole woman. Inspired by the cyclical nature of the moon and the inherent wisdom of women, we designed an intuitive tool for self-growth.
They always seem to receive “the perfect card” that tells them “exactly what they needed to hear.” What resonated with me seemed to also be working for them. But chaos breeds beauty, and working with sisters to create something heartfelt was a true ritual in and of itself.
That said, my favorite part of this work is creative collaborations and teaching in group settings. I also have been using these cards in my yoga classes which has been hugely helpful in giving my themes direction and deeper meaning. This has been the case with all of my biggest achievements and creative projects – if I look back, there was always a moment when I saw the vision in some form. We also want to offer ‘ritual bundles’ where you can get an all-in-one experience that includes the deck plus all the ritual needs from the guidebook – and yes we are open to collaborations!
I went along to my session as a complete sceptic, but once I saw the power of this work, I immediately started my journey of discovery and have been practising and learning ever since. How they would feel, what they would address, how they would answer the readers’ questions.
I feel inspired by being in her presence and always feel she has the answers to my questions as well as constantly teaching me more about myself and the world around us. You can take time to go through a complete visualisation that will help you ground and centre. A favorite one of mine is a few drops of rosemary oil and a few drops of lavender oil with spring water as the carrier.
We’re doing something because we really want to, whether or not anyone else is looking, or cares.
The win described in this card comes from commitment and a natural enthusiasm for a particular activity, not from a need to defeat someone else, or from doing something because we think others hope or expect that we’ll do it. In this case harmonious passions are subverted as we try to maintain our strength to keep doing what we feel we should rather than what we truly want. Mary-Ann Simmel used a short animated film they created to study social perception and causal attribution. At this point, he says, there is no evidence to show that Tarot cards had yet been created, which goes against many claims that ordinary playing cards evolved from the original Tarot deck. You may come up with some new systems or processes that make your work life simpler and less stressful.
So share your hard-won perspectives on life, know that your wisdom and caring is valuable. The attraction may not be mutual from the very beginning, but if you are patient and persistent, it is likely to grow.
Logic can lead you to the spirit, if you allow this, and if you don't get too stuck in your logical self. What matters here is the regularity of it - whether it's daily, weekly; whatever you can make time for. It's possible that what you initially interpret as a bad thing will turn out to work in your favor. Remember, though, that you'll need to use both your intellect and your heart, in order to be truly successful.
If you aren't interested in a relationship with someone who clearly wants one with you, the kindest thing you can possibly do is to let them know that you just aren't interested. If you're already employed, and there is room for upward mobility, don't hesitate to negotiate for what you're worth. Honor the need that you may have to withdraw to a degree from ordinary life - It won't last forever.
Live in the now, count your blessings, and just realize that much of life is outside of your control, but that even that is okay.
If you have a desire to do something different, but don't know anybody who does what you want to do - be bold, and call up someone who does what you dream of doing, and ask them if you can have lunch with them or shadow them for four hours.
However, if you have had a long prosperous period, consider the opposite possibility, that your income may drop a little.
When in doubt, go back to the basics; proper nutrition, proper rest and proper exercise go a long way toward helping.
Accept whatever your fair share of responsibility is for the situation you are currently facing, be accountable to yourself if to no one else, and move on.
Sometimes you will be called upon to deal with the results of the actions of someone you care about, and this can sometimes be as difficult and demanding as it is when you're up against something that is completely of your own making.
For most people, one or the other comes more easily to us; be sure that regardless of which field (personal life or work) you feel most comfortable in, that you are giving the other part of life as much attention and energy. It's possible that something you thought you understood could best be treated in another way. Sometimes we just can't see how our attitudes are hurting us, and when that is true, this time period can be a wake-up call.
If you can be brave and take the chance of leaving the security of this relationship, you can find one that works much better. The idea now is to do what it takes to find balance, in yourself, in your relationships, and with your goals and aspirations. With this card you are called to look beyond superficial appearances and to go deeper into the truth and meaning of a situation. This card also sometimes appears when there is really nothing to be done but to end an unhappy relationship. If you have been building castles in the air this may be the time that some of them come crashing down to earth. This is a great time to take risks (only those you can afford,) to ask for more money at your job, and to sell things. You need to try to sit with the uncertainty, don't try to force things or people to do things before they are ready. For those that use alcohol or drugs, this is a time when it is definitely easy to overdo it.
This is also a great time to access the great spiritual books of the world - you'll get more out of them than usual. If you've been waiting on a decision to be made by others it means you won't have to wait much longer and that the decision is very likely to be in your favor. This is partly mental as well as physical - if you look back you are likely to find that your attitude has been more positive of late too. This is a great time to try different spiritual approaches on for size to see if any of them work for you. You may need to look outside your own country for helpful information in how the work you do is done elsewhere - this could lead to some very interesting realizations. This is an important time to begin saving and protecting yourself so that if hard times come again, that you'll be more prepared. If a reader concentrates on the layout used while shuffling the deck and selecting cards, the layout should work whether it comes from tradition or invention. A quiet room is preferred to a noisy locale, meditation is recommended prior to each reading, and cards should be kept in a bag or wooden box with citrine and other crystals to keep their energy clean, and so on.
As the deck is shuffled, a good reader will concentrate on the question the querent has posed. I also don't deliberately turn cards upside down while shuffling, as the cards offer enough meanings to get their message across without it. If you feel that a few cards should be pulled out and re-positioned, follow that intuition.
The reader may chat with the seeker about a few of his or her personal traits, and then choose a card which seems the closest to the seeker's personality. NOTE: Some sources recommend that if the main face on the first card is looking to the left or right, the fifth card should be placed on the side that the face is looking away from. The first group (cards 1-3) represent the seeker's past, the 2nd group the present, and the 3rd group the future. Many different layouts can be selected and tried by the reader over time, and layouts with the best results can be incorporated into regular readings. You don’t need a huge amount of money to have a good site especially with providers such as weebly, squarespace and wix providing easy to build, free or low cost websites. It usually changes into something a little different once it becomes real, so leave a little room for that sweet surprise. Also – we want the website to grow into a fun, interactive and useful destination for women to connect in community and receive information on self-love rituals, how to’s, and conscious products. I have an unboxing video of The Abundant SHEro Oracle Deck and will be reviewing the deck next week. Use a glass bottle and I even put a couple of rose quartz mini stones at the bottom for added energy.
The most common deck in the United States is the Rider-Waite deck, which was created in 1909 by A.E. The Major Arcana cards represent strong, long-term energy or big events in some area of life. When the High Priestess appears in a man's reading, she also often represents a woman that he will want badly; but whom he may not be able to get.
Be sure, when it comes to financial transactions, that you give out only the information that is needed and no more. If you are looking for work, now is a time to be dispassionate, to step outside yourself and think about how others see you from a logical point of view; play up the logical reasons why they should hire you. Be cautious about mixing business with romance; if you chose to go there, make sure you know exactly what the stakes are. Just do the best you can, and don't waste time on worrying about the way others perceive your efforts. So conquer your fears, control your impulses, and never lose patience with yourself or what you are doing. That's hardest to do when things are difficult; if you receive this card when you are at a low point, know that things are very likely to be looking up soon. If your head says that you want nothing more than a romantic relationship; look at your behavior. You will soon be feeling much more social, so don't push yourself now to be around a lot of people unless it is absolutely necessary. If you are directly involved with a court case, it is likely to be resolved, at least in large degree, in your favor. This is definitely a time of deep transformation, likely to be both inner and outwardly in your life. You don't have to struggle or suffer alone, nor should it come to that, although there is a possibility that you'll be dealing with an involuntary loss of income as your job may be cut back, your stocks may lose money etc. Allow yourself to feel what you feel, but don't wallow in pain or sorrow; if you need help pulling yourself away from any pain or loss that you are suffering, reach out. You also are asked to remember that when you're feeling restrained you nearly always hold the keys to your own freedom. Regardless, it will be crucial to remember that you can free yourself from whatever restrictions are holding you back, at any time you choose to do so. Are there upbeat, positive people in your midst, or are you surrounded by overly critical, fault-finding people who nitpick you to the point where you're depressed?
It is certain, however, that you aren't making anything any better by avoiding the issues. Dust off your resume, read tips and tactics about making positive career changes, and when opportunity knocks, be prepared to answer.
If you're already committed, your relationship may move to new, higher, more fulfilling levels. Stay calm, and particularly if you are feeling attacked, give your co-workers and supervisors the benefit of any doubt. You're almost definitely in need of some well-deserved rest and relaxation; don't be afraid to take it. We are all on a spiritual journey, and your insights are likely to be valuable for others as well.
However, some claim that the number of people using and meditating on common layouts like the Celtic Cross give those particular layouts more power than layouts used less often. While each reader should try techniques and evaluate how well they work, Tarot can be read almost anywhere, with remarkably good results. For privacy, if a querent doesn't want to verbalize the question, the reader can simply concentrate on answering the querent's question while the querent concentrates on the question.
Shuffling correctly using intuition is one of the most important techniques of giving a good reading. Or the reader could pull out a few cards which may represent the seeker, such as the four queens for a woman or the four knights for a younger man, and ask the seeker to choose the first card. Supposedly, the entire timeline goes from the most distant past to the most distant future, so card 1 would be the oldest experience in the seeker's life, card 9 the most distant future. Do you go to a Professional of any other job and think they don’t deserve to be paid?
It really boosted my confidence to have a Tarot goddess say to me that I have a gift and should be doing this work. Some decks are gentler if I’m after some kind and supportive advice, others don’t mess around and get straight to the heart of the matter, often giving me a not so gentle nudge in the right direction! Shake it up before you use it and spray it above your head and shoulders a bit of a distance away from your body.
Waite, a prominent member of the occult group the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and published by Rider & Company. If you can master yourself then you should have little problem mastering the world and all the things in it. You are likely to be successful in finding work if you make a logical and sustained effort now. If there's not room for a raise or promotion where you are now, give serious thought to finding something where there is this possibility, or consider what it would take for you to strike out on your own business-wise.
You will likely emerge from this month feeling refreshed and renewed, particularly on a spiritual level.
Situations, things, and people that you have counted on or gotten used to may no longer be available to you in quite the same way as they once were, and this transition can be difficult for some people. There is always a caring soul who will help you, even if you are quite literally alone in the world; more people care about you than you can even begin to imagine.
You may have the feeling now that you are not in control of your life; sometimes this happens as a result of your own actions, but more often as a byproduct of inaction. If you don't feel the trade-off is worth your unhappiness, start putting out feelers and giving thought to what you can do to change the situation. You will be able to replace them with some more realistic and reachable dreams and goals if some fantasies fall apart this month. Even if you think that you have the most stable job or sources of income in the world, what would you do if it dried up tomorrow? If you know what you're doing (and know about your allergies, and your doctor approves) consider trying relaxing herbs. If you are waiting on an answer from someone, it may, unfortunately, take longer than you would like for it to. In my experience, the most important skill for a good reading is the concentration of the reader. In fact, if the reader concentrates and uses intuition well during the shuffle, usually the standard card meanings combined with their positions will work well without much added intuition or psychic insight during the cards' interpretations. Other sources simply place the 5th card on the left, using a left-to-right motion to indicate direction as seen in Western languages. Above all else, this man teaches - without even trying, perhaps - the benefits of structure and logic ruling over the emotions and lesser desires.
In a committed relationship, you might have been moving in different directions for a while now. Figure out exactly what you are dealing with, face the situation, then do what you must to get through it.
For general readings (readings without a question in particular), the reader simply concentrates on the best reading for the seeker, what the querent needs to know at the time of the reading. People began referring to as tarocchi, which is an Italian version of the French word tarot, around 1530. You will get through this time just fine; particularly if you remember that you have all the resources you need, already inside you, to deal with life and to do what you need to do.
Thinking things through now, when you are not in a crisis may pay big dividends for you on down the road.
