Tarot Readings in La Grange are performed by someone that is trained in how to read and interpret the symbolism of the Tarot Cards. Tarot Readers do not necessarily have to possess any psychic or supernatural gifts to perform Tarot Readings. It is more of a left-brain science (logical side of the brain) much like Astrology. I have found the best Tarot Readers are also initiates of the Golden Dawn Kabbalah*.
Having a Psychic Tarot Reading in La Grange is fulfilling.
Some tarot historians claim that the history of tarot cards is thousand of years old but there is little or no evidence to support this claim.
Historical records of tarot games go back only to the fourteenth century.
The oldest Italian tarot decks are form the XV century and come from northern Italy.
They were painted by hand for the Renaissance nobility of Milan. The early history of tarot cards is closely linked to the Visconti family and the city of Milan.
The decks were used to play but were also designed as a didactic tool to educate about mythology and ethics.
The Visconti decks that survived to our times are known with the name of their owners.
The Pierpont-Morgan or Colleoni is the most famous Visconti tarot deck.
It was probably created shortly after 1450 by Bonifacio Bembo, painter and miniaturist, to celebrate the marriage between Francesco Sforza and Bianca Maria Visconti.
Another ancient tarot deck that survived to our days and can be seen at the British museum, is the Mantegna deck, designed around 1470 by an unknown author of Northern Italy.
The Sola-Busca tarot deck is the only one that survived intact to our days. It was probably made in Venice and is the first one to have numbered trumps.
In the 1940s, Alister Crowley, a former member of the Golden Dawn, designed the Thoth tarot deck in collaboration with of Frieda Harris.
Also psychoanalyst Carl Jung (1875-1961) became interested in ancient systems of divination as tarot cards and I Ching.
For Jung tarot symbols represent perfectly the instinctual forces that work without our conscious control in our psyche. He called these symbols archetypes.
According to Jung, the images that represent the archetypes may vary in different cultures but their essential characteristics are universal.
When we are not aware of these archetypal forces we tend to act in a predetermined way, our actions unconsciously directed by these impulses.
Becoming aware of the archetypes and confronting them can make us free in our choices and able to respond to the challenges of life in an independent way.
Tarot cards can be a door to fulfilling our deepest needs and express our true self.
Present day Tarot Cards draw most of their symbolism from the Kabbalah. If you want a Tarot Reading, you will want to ask the Tarot Reader if they have knowledge of the Kabbalah as well.
There are pros and cons to both; It is a matter of personal preference really which is better.
*The Kabbalah incidentally is a form of Jewish Mysticism that is
believed to have originated from Moses. However, Mystical Kabbalah is non-religious; it ties in all the Gods and Goddesses of the world. I am referring to Kabbalah, from the Golden Dawn System of thought, often called “Mystical Kabbalah” today. Writer’s such as: Dion Fortune, S.L. Macgregor Mathers, and Isreal Regardie disseminated the Mystical Kabbalah ideas through their early 1900 writings on the subject.
Tarot Reading - Which Questions Can You Ask and When?
I come from areally mixed family.
All my siblings, asidefrom my little brother, we all look different sowe're all different colors of the rainbow and we allgrew up together in the same house and I guess that thatwas a really cool thing.
I'm really glad that thathappened to me because it gave me the chance to notthink in the same way that a lot of people have beenconditioned to think.
I think that's a supercool thing and I wish the world would bemore like that.
So my mom, when I wasborn, she wanted to name me Starley, she said thatshe knew I was gonna be a famous singer.
My mom is very intuitiveand she's almost psychic.
I can't even explain it.
She always knows whensomething's gonna go wrong or like she just, she hasan inkling about something and she'll say somethingand then it would happened and we'd all be like "ohwe should've listened to mom" ya know? She's really funny thatway so when I was born she wanted to name me Starleyand my dad said no.
My dad said "We're notnaming her Starley, that's just an airy fairy name,like who wants to have their kid as Starley,that's a terrible name" My mom said "No she's gonnabe famous, we have to call her Starley, she's gonnabe a great singer" So she put her foot down andbasically, when the mom wants to name the kid likeyou can't really argue with the mom.
She birthed me, she wentthrough all the hours, all that shit so shenamed me Starley.
She turned outto be right.
When I got older and Istarted to sing a lot I realized that thatwas a good thing.
Because in the beginningI used to get teased at school and stuff and Ireally kind of resented that that was my name.
But later on I wasreally happy about it.
I guess my mom is the dreamerand the encourager.
She's the one where, if mydad tells me a song's not good enough, my mom said "Stopif Clifford, it's beautiful.
Like why do you haveto.
" You know but my dad's very practical.
So she's the dreamer andshe's the one that I'll go to for the nurturing side.
My dad's the one thatI'll go to for the hard criticism, the kindof like constructive criticism but youknow, the truth.
The hard truth.
So my dad, I'd be next tohim talking about it and we'd try to go throughstrategies of how "okay well what's the next move"we always used to say "what's the next move"That was a thing that we used to talk about.
To sort of make an newlittle strategy and figure out "okay so now maybe Ineed to make these couple of songs and reach out tothat person" and I'd spend an hour every dayreaching out to people.
So my dad was the one thatI sort of used to go to for advice andeverything like that.
Things thatwere practical.
And even when I was at thepoint when I was gonna quit, even him at thatpoint started to think "Yeah it's the rightthing" Even though it probably made him feelreally sad that it wasn't working out, he wasthinking the same thing like "maybe it's time"So yeah, you probably understand by now that formy parents right now, they are so ecstaticabout life.
I think they feel soproud that something they believed in for so longand everyone else didn't believe, after a whilepeople were just like "Nah you guys, you're a littlecrazy.
" So now they just feel really proud thatthey stuck with me throughout everything.
Yeah they couldn't be happier Ithink so it's cool.
