A little behind. Oh well.
Day 24: What Tarot card do you feel is the most misunderstood and why?
Shh. You know which one.
Pretty much every Tarot 101 book tells you that Death almost never means literal death. If it comes up as your card of the day, chances are, you’ll live to see the next morning. It’s about endings, yes, but also about transition, and clearing the way for new beginnings. I rarely read for other people, and even when I do, those other people are usually familiar enough with the tarot that I don’t have to explain the 13th trump. But I suspect that if I read for someone who didn’t know much about tarot and Death came up, I’d be in for a lot of explaining and reassurance, and they might not really believe me. And I completely sympathize with the confusion. Most versions of the card have a skeleton, a skull, the Grim Reaper, or something that says DEATH—not “transition,” not “ending,” not “figuratively speaking”—on them. It’s an easy mistake to make.
Day 25: Do you have any Tarot self-care rituals that are only for your personal practice?
No. It sounds like a lovely idea, though, so I may be trying to come up with some and watching other people’s posts for inspiration.
