Tarot Reading for the Collective ~ September 2020: Dream of Love

Dear Collective,

This month I am using the Neo Tarot by Jerico Mandybur, illustrated by Daiana Ruiz. I had been long admiring this beautiful and inclusive tarot deck, so it was an exciting moment when I finally got my own copy. Thank you for the generous gift, Jerico!

This month’s questions are:

What do we need to stop complaining about?

How can we put things into perspective?

How can we dare to dream of love again?

What silliness do we need to avoid?

Let’s begin.

1. What do we need to stop complaining about?

Two of Cups

Stop complaining about the things that are actually working – about the connections that do exist, about the extraordinary ways in which we find solidarity even in amongst the trash heaps. Resist complaining about the people who have your back, and who actively love you (even if sometimes they may not express that love in a way that pleases you).

If there must be complaining, then by all means give it some space (we aren’t perfect after all), but make sure it is followed by brainstorming, self-reflection and affirmative action that seeks to change the things that ail us.

2. How can we put things into perspective?

The Devil

Put things into perspective by remembering that there is always another way to view the stuff we have been taught to be afraid of. Sometimes a new perspective requires us to be uncomfortable, in order to fully understand the implications. Remember that what has kept us shackled are systems and beliefs, and there is always room to dismantle those chains if we are willing to feel awkward and exposed. Our minds can be so strong and resilient if we don’t buy into the lies we have been taught about ourselves. The Devil isn’t scary, the stories about them are.

3. How can we dare to dream of love again?

Knight of Swords

Dare to dream of love again by firstly getting clear that love is not a Hollywood fantasy, but a much more spectacular, radical, messy, real, powerful and potent, deeply connected way of existing with a lover, partner, friend, family (relatives or chosen), community and environment. Let your dreams of love be far more interesting than the codependent vapid nonsense on the love songs radio channel.

Demand more for your dreams of love by communicating what you want, first to yourself and then to a trusted other. Be bold and don’t hold back! What seems unlikely may well become possible if you destroy the lies that society disseminates about your age, body shape, ability, gender and sexual orientation. You are so much more than the misunderstandings of others. Dream of love that is strong and resilient and watch it make an entrance as you nourish those aspects within yourself.

4. What silliness do we need to avoid?

The Magician

Avoid the silliness of those who pretend that everything is just super lovely wonderful excellent but only if you stay positive in the face of all the horrible things! Avoid the silliness of situations where people pretend to be happy when really they are just working really hard at suppressing big emotions that would be much more manageable if they started to talk more deeply and authentically. ‘Lite’ talk can be fun at times for sure, but deep talk is what gives us reason to live. Don’t just jump straight to “everything’s fine!” – be willing to move through the stages that allow a more thorough and empowered realisation of who you are now and who you hope to become.

I am part of the team on a new Youtube series called Tarot off the Cuff, in which 10 different professional tarot readers give short, impromptu talks aimed at helping developing readers to deepen their own process. The tarot professional chooses a card on the spot and speaks on whatever comes to mind, including tips, techniques and curious stories of reading professionally. My first video (I pulled the Magician card!) can be watched here. If you enjoy it, subscribe to the channel so that you don’t miss an episode!
