Hello, dear followers!

As some of you know, one of my pet peeves is reading a book (or watching a TV show, or movie) and catching a character bring up Tarot cards and display their meanings incorrectly. Drawing XII: Death does not mean you’re going to die, that’s silly. I have rambled about it in the past. But I thought, I keep telling people what the cards DON’T mean, but have I done anything to educate people on the Tarot? No. So, I thought I would change that! :D

Above you will find a photoset of the Major Arcana, and their general meanings. This is just a cheat-sheet, that is why I have decided to exclude the Minor Arcana (it also happens to be like 50+ cards) and the Reversed meanings (because they tend to be pretty straight forward except for a few exemptions). In the future I may make a longer post with a more detailed explanation c;

So, what is the Tarot?

Tarot is a deck of playing cards, made of two sets. The Major Arcana, which is what most people associate with the Tarot, and The Minor Arcana (from which the modern playing card deck evolved).

Over the centuries (particularly the 18th century) the use of the deck shifted, and nowadays the deck is used as a tool for divination, or as a tool of encouragement. The use of universal symbols such as: the father (The Emperor), the mother (The Empress), the young man (The Fool), natural change (Death), temptation (The Devil), etc, allow people to tackle their life problems from a greater point of view.

Regardless of this, the Tarot is commonly seen in books, television, and movies, as an occult tool for obtaining guidance from a greater power, or for gaining insight into the near future.

DISCLAIMER: The above are just general meanings behind the symbolism of every card. Additionally the cards are open to interpretation, the above are the meanings I have come to associate with them over the years. Do not take these meanings as gospel, they are just my interpretations. If you would like to learn more, there are plenty of resources! Here, and here are two good places to start :D

Also, the images you see are from this nifty website. You can find more Tarot decks and information there~ ♥︎

I'm looking for a spell to make a person(s) see that they are full of shit and that their words and 'reasons' are bullshit. Everything that they say is bullshit. I want them to know I see through it. I don't even care if it's a curse or curse-flavored. I'm also looking for a spell to help me stand up to someone without clamming up/forgetting all my planned responses.

Wow, do I have the curse for you….

"YOU’RE AN ASSHAT AND YOU NEED TO REALIZE IT YOU FUCKING PEICE OF GARBAGE" spell

Have fun, herbyhearthywitch!

-TLW

guys you need to be more careful with curses. 

i understand people may piss you off and you might feel hurt or whatever. and lord knows i’ve been there making gris gris bags to curse others. but you have to remember, whatever you put out comes at you 3 fold. and that means all the negativity even without rituals and curses you put out comes back to you. 

forgive and forget. 

"and harm ye none, do what ye will"

you can definitely do something to make another see how they act is wrong. but you need to do it with peace and love in your mind and heart.

Hi there, 

While I admire your dedication to your own personal morals, it’s important to remember that not everyone follows the threefold law. It’s 100% strictly a Wiccan concept, created by Wiccans, for Wiccans. Not everyone is Wiccan.

It’s a good thing that you know exactly where you stand on these things on a personal level, but it’s common courtesy to stay unbiased towards other peoples’ practices. This person is clearly okay with curses, and that’s totally fine! But you need to respect that. 

And plus, this person might not even be Wiccan. I’m not sure, how could I know? Not all my followers are Wiccans, and I don’t assume. I act unbiased and give them the information they ask for. Their personal practices are their business. Not everyone really enjoys the whole “love and peave and light, blessed be” thing.

I would like to inform everyone that I am not a Wiccan. I asked TheLivingWiccan because I have seen them give great answers in the past and they have show to be a great resource. (I do admit that I was angry when I sent that request, but my anger has not changed since then.) I do not follow the Threefold Law nor the Wiccan Rede. I do, however, follow discretion, thorough consideration, and good sense. The person I was referring to needs a kick in the ass, and I have tried everything else. Words don’t sink in, so I’m turning to magick.

Thank you very much for your contribution - certainly makes the discussion much clearer!
