Lately, in the last week I’ve been picking a single tarot card each day to give myself a little bit of guidance. If you’ve read my last couple blog posts you’ll know I’ve been feeling a little lost. To quote Easy A: “Who am I? What does it all meaaaan?”
Reading one tarot card a day does a lot more than you might think.
It makes you think about your life in a new way. I’ve gotten a little complacent and I’ve been feeling pretty unhappy about where I am in life. Even if you don’t believe that tarot can give you mystical insight into the future or whatever, I find from a purely secular point of view, we place our own meanings onto the cards and they tell us the things we really want or need to hear.
Without even meaning to, without having to take a long walk in the woods or seeing a psychiatrist, we start to see the things we aren’t happy with in our lives and start to acknowledge and change them!
Big change starts with something small! If you’re feeling a bit depressed or complacent like me, it might be just the thing to start you off in your own journey. First it’s a card a day, then you’ll be reading about everyday magic and then maybe you’ll be taking the next big step to your huge dream.
So that brings me to the 100 days of tarot challenge!
I’ve already found it a positive part of my day. And it doesn’t take much time at all. Over the next 100 days I’m going to be picking a card every day. And I’ll be sure to take you along with me to find out what I discover along the way.
Here are the rules:
1. Firstly, you need a tarot deck. It’s so important to have something physical and real that you can shuffle and feel while you’re thinking about your wishes for the day.
2. You must pick one card a day for the 100 days. I choose to ‘set the scene’ when I’m doing my morning tarot reading, but you can do it anyway that it feels right. If you prefer to read to music or to the sound of morning birds chirping outside.
3. Share your own tarot journey with me! I’m definitely going to be checking in every couple of weeks to let you know how it’s going and what lessons I’m learning along the way. This challenge is proof that it’s already starting to change the way I think!
Send me your card of the day on Instagram. Just upload the picture and tag me @Sarywalrus and #100daysoftarot. Otherwise just let me know below!
Do you read tarot? Would you ever partake in a 100 days of tarot challenge? I think I’ll do a couple more posts on this to really explore the topic throughout the hundred days. So, I hope you’ll stay with me!
