Welcome to TarotUnlimited.com! The Tarot is a respected and well-established means of divination called cartomancy; or using cards to help access the Divine within us all. The Tarot deck differs from the standard 52-card bridge set, for Anglo-Americans, or the 32-card piquet set for the French. The Tarot consists of 78 pictorial cards; 22 cards called the Major Arcana and 56 cards termed the Minor Arcana.

The posts on this page highlight the Tarot cards in different ways. Tarot as Art discovering how Tarot evokes feelings. Tarot card of the Month is a Tarot monthly horoscope, and Tarot Daily Lesson spotlights one card for the day and discusses what that card means in today’s modern world.

Genevieve’s Notebook: How Accurate Are Your Tarot Readings?

Genevieve’s Notebook is a fresh new feature on Tarot Unlimited. It is advice from Genevieve’s Tarot Notebook just for you. Join me each Sunday for insight from my own Notebook. Topics vary but they include Tarot, questions from clients, and common sense advice you can use!

Genevieves Notebook Genevieves Notebook: How Accurate Are Your Tarot Readings?

“Just how accurate are your Tarot readings?”

No Tarot reader is 100% accurate. It just doesn’t happen. Yet, accuracy rates among Tarot readers can vary. The median rate is about 80%. Feedback from my clients indicates that my accuracy rate is around 85-90% for Tarot readings. As a general rule, I do not keep records of my Tarot readings. I have a an extra fail safe in place which is a faulty memory for Tarot readings I have done in the past. Once I finish a Tarot reading for a client, I forget it completely. I do so many readings each day that to remember them all, I would need a service like Dropbox for my brain. (Thankfully, no such service exists yet!) Thus, I have no idea what my own accuracy rate is. The accuracy range I listed above on client feedback and ratings only.

Blessings!

Tarot Card of the Day-Magician: Which of My Tools Will Help you Reach Your Potential?

20140402 125518 Tarot Card of the Day Magician: Which of My Tools Will Help you Reach Your Potential?

Magician from The Gilded Tarot-Royale by Ciro Marchetti

“Hello there! I am known as Magician in the Tarot realm. My name is Fedoris. Most people come seeking my skills. As such, I am seldom without these tools you see here.

“I use the wand to direct my will. Many people from the Desert Wands request my wand when their own passion fizzles and fades. When they visit, they ask me to use my wand to unblock their mojo. I will cast a circle around them and use my wand to free their mojo. Those fiery nomads passionately believe that my wand works wonders. It must because they always leave here all fired up!

“The loving people from the Cups Isle do not often seek me out. When they do, I offer them my own cup. As we share a drink from the same cup, I listen to their concerns. When the cup is empty, they leave to begin the long journey home. They believe the cup holds magickal elixir. Maybe it is. I’ve never investigated this. At any rate, my cup does the job well!

“The High Mountain is home to the Swords clan. They are the professional thinkers of Tarot. Their king and I very nearly had a battle of wits the last time he was here. They do not often grace my doorstep. When they do, their need is very great. I have offered each and every one of them access to my vast library that only opens with my sword. The Swords clan love to read and they swear that my sword is a magickal key of some sort. It must be if the Swords clan believes it!

“The people of the Pentacle Plains come to me in famine years. When they arrive, they always ask to polish and carve my pentacle. I offer a directing hand as they work. These industrious people are the hardworking backbone of the Tarot. They are not happy until my Pentacles shines like new. As they work, they talk about the drought, the famine, the bountiful times and the lean times. By the time they finish working on my pentacle, they are chomping at the bit and ready to set off again! They often bet their fortunes that my pentacle is made out of more than precious metal.

“When one of my cousins comes, be it the Hierophant or the Star, they always want to touch the tattoo on my forehead. They believe it can help them on their quest. Perhaps it can, I’ve never looked into it. It is a sacred mark passed down from one generation to the next and the wisdom it holds always changes. That is why my cousin in the Major Arcana firmly attest to its power.

“Let me ask you, which of my tools will help you reach your potential?”

Journal: What is the best tool for the job?

Consider: What latent talents can I let loose? Who has the expertise in this matter? How can I uncover my skills?

Blessings Always!

Tarot Card of the Day-Two of Cups: How Often Do You Look into Your Partner’s Eyes without Bias?

20140401 115724 Tarot Card of the Day Two of Cups: How Often Do You Look into Your Partners Eyes without Bias?

Two of Cups from the Gilded Tarot-Royale by Ciro Marchetti

“Hello. I am Methid and this is Calypsia. Pleased to meet you!

“You’re wondering what it is we’re doing with this fish and these cups. The fish is Weaver and he is a friend. He’s here to help us ‘swim freely’. The cups hold our emotions. Calypsia’s is on the left and mine is on the right.

“We are ‘experiencing compersion’. Compersion is ‘the experience of taking pleasure in the knowledge that one’s partner is experiencing pleasure, even if the source of their pleasure is other than yourself. The feeling may or may not be sexual.’* Or, I experience pleasure when my partner does. This includes times when the source of my partner’s pleasure is not me. That takes time to develop but the feeling of mutual pleasure is well worth it!

“We came across compersion two years ago when we were drifting apart emotionally. That evening we decided to dedicate ten minutes to compersion. We liked it so much we did it the next night. Over time, we have added symbols, the cups, and ventured outside on warm nights. Our current compersion practice involves looking into each other’s eyes for ten minutes. Breathing in and out. Then on the exhale, we switch cups and pour our partner’s emotions into the ocean. It’s a work in progress and in love.

“Since we discovered compersion and added this nightly practice, we no longer drift apart. Rather, when we feel alone, we will reach out to rub the other’s shoulder or pat the other on the back. This act physically connects us and grounds us in our love until we can engage in compersion later.

“How often do you look into your partner’s eyes without bias? What would you discover if you did this nightly? There is a saying that to understand someone, you must walk in their shoes. We like to say, ‘to understand my partner, I must look into his (or her, or their) eyes.”

Journal: When have I experienced compersion?

Ask yourself: When was the last time I emptied my cup of emotions to my partner? What can I do to help my partner open up more? What practices do my partner and I have to strengthen our love?

Blessings always,

Genevieve

Tarot Card of the Day-The Wheel: How Will You Respond to the Things that Happen in Your Life?

20140328 131050 Tarot Card of the Day The Wheel: How Will You Respond to the Things that Happen in Your Life?

The Wheel from the Gilded Tarot-Royale by Ciro Marchetti

“Rollin’ rollin’, rollin’ keep those doggies movin’ rawhide!

Tarot Card of the Day-Queen of Pentacles: What sort of Mama or Papa Are You?

20140326 110940 Tarot Card of the Day Queen of Pentacles: What sort of Mama or Papa Are You?

The Queen of Pentacles from the Gilded Tarot-Royale by Ciro Marchetti

“Greetings! Welcome to the Pentacle Plains! Or as the people say, ‘Welcome home!’ Isn’t that a wonderful greeting? They came up with it after I made an address at last year’s harvest. I said, ‘Welcome to the Hearth and Home Festival!’ They shortened it to, ‘Welcome Home!’ from then on.

“As Queen of this realm, it is my duty to inspire through speech. This is one task I love, though, not because I love public speaking. I love it because it forces me to speak from the heart. The people here are honest, hardworking folk who have no use for flowery language and complex words. So, I must be heartfelt, simple, and meaningful as I choose my words. I love thinking about words!

“When I’m not speaking to the masses, I am visiting the local schoolhouse. I believe strongly that children are our future. When the children see me, they call me Mama Two. A title I wear with pride! Because I am their second mother, the children are well behaved. As a result, bullying doesn’t exist in the Pentacle Plains! I am quite proud of my children and I tell them this often.

“You might think that my biological children dislike the title Mama Two. In fact, the love it! It means that my youngest has more playmates than she can visit in a year. For my oldest, it means he has the eye of every teenager in the kingdom. This means plenty of dates and lots of helping hands in the fields.

“What sort of mama or papa are you?”

Journal: What can I do to reduce bullying?

Consider these questions: What would happen if I spoke from the heart? How can I invest personally in the future of children? Is it time to disassemble the fences in my life?

Blessings!

Tarot Card of the Day-The Moon: How Do the Tides of My Creativity Ebb and Flow?

20140321 141823 Tarot Card of the Day The Moon: How Do the Tides of My Creativity Ebb and Flow?

The Moon by Ciro Marchetti from the Gilded Tarot-Royale

“Goodnight everyone! . I am the Moon. Creator of tides and guardian of the night and all things nocturnal. Welcome to my parlor! I hope your dreams are productive if my time to shine is the end of your day. If it is the beginning of your day, I can promise stillness and calm your thoughts.

“I love the quiet which the night brings. It is the perfect companion to a day filled with motion. Some might say that I am not important but that is folly. Everyone needs to rest. It is crucial to their health. Embrace the downtime and let your mind wander where it will. Dreams are the hope of tomorrow which have not  communicated.

“Some will tell you to be wary of my moonlight for it does not reflect what is. They call it illusions. I say that this is taking the creative process too literally! My job is not to reflect what is, but to inspire what could be. Vincent Van Gogh recognized this and painted Starry Night as a result. Before you rush off to fact-check that sentence, I must tell you that I absolutely love a good story!

“I may not reflect reality but I do influence it greatly. Just ask Don McLean about his experience writing “Vincent” sometime. Listen to what he says. That is just one of many stories that I am fond of.

“Have I influenced your creativity yet? Dream on what I have said. Perhaps even howl at me like the wolf does. Creativity has many influences and I am them all.”

Journal: What inspires your creative process?

Consider: What sways my judgement? Who influences me? How do the tides of my creativity ebb and flow?

Blessings!

Tarot Card of the Day-10 of Swords: Which Thoughts Do I Need to Prune Before the Weeds Take Over?

20140319 120654 Tarot Card of the Day 10 of Swords: Which Thoughts Do I Need to Prune Before the Weeds Take Over?

10 of Swords from The Gilded Tarot-Royale by Ciro Marchetti

“My these red flowers are lovely! They are so fresh! I might just nap here. Yes. Wonderful!

“What’s that? Oh those swords do look imposing, don’t they? The first time I saw them, they scared me out of my mind! My father told me something extremely wise about them on that day. He said, ‘These swords point down at you. They target your thoughts and magnify them tenfold because there are ten swords. So let your thoughts include all possibilities to avoid favoritism. Whatever you think about, they slash. Take care that they do not slice what you wish to remain whole. Learn to be discerning with your thoughts so that each slash does the least amount of damage.’

“These swords are always with me. I cannot get rid of them. I can choose how to use them. I can choose which thoughts to cut apart and which thoughts to leave intact. I can choose and that is the true gift of these ten swords.

“Which thoughts will you choose to slash? Remember, measure twice, because you can only cut once. And do pick some flowers!”

Journal: When was the last time I measured my thoughts?

Consider: Which thoughts do I need to prune before the weeds take over? How can I use my ten swords for good? Which of my thoughts do these swords magnify tenfold?

Blessings Always!

Tarot Card of the Day-7 of Wands: How Important Is Swaying Public Opinion?

20140318 153837 Tarot Card of the Day 7 of Wands: How Important Is Swaying Public Opinion?

1/78th of the Gilded Tarot-Royale by Ciro Marchetti

“…Since I have the floor, please hear me out. Yes? Look, we tried it your way last time and now we’ve fallen too far behind. Wait just a minute there! That’s not what happened. If you will recall, we voted on that issue 2 weeks prior and only after voting did we proceed. May I continue? Thank you.

“Hello. Thank you all for coming today. This meeting is strictly to discuss the proposed idea before us.  The current proposal before us is to hire three graphic designers, two programmers, and one more secretary. Our budget will increase 10 times from the previous quarter to compensate.

“This is my idea so, by the rules, I have 10 minutes to persuade 2/3rds of the voting majority. Time starts now.

“First, the graphic designers. A complete rebranding of our company will take five years to do with the graphic designer we have on staff.  The corporate office must approve each design he submits. Then that design must go the regional offices, and finally our customers see it in every business we have. That is not an option people.We don’t have that kind of time. We’re in the big leagues and we need to be faster and better! Three more graphic designers would cut down on time and increase efficiency at least threefold.

“Next, we need two more programmers to handle the increase in web traffic. That storm last month knocked us off line for two hours causing a lot of customers to leave. I think it was about five million total. That’s not good. If we had two more programmers, we would not have been off line at all during that storm.  Furthermore, we would have seen a gain in business for that month instead of the biggest loss to-date.

“An extra secretary frees the current one to handle the president’s agenda. He would also have more time to arrange catering, and schedule corporate events. The new hire would handle the VP’s schedule and those of the committee assembled here.

“I have made my case. The floor is open. Will we vote? What say you?

“No. We can’t afford to ‘just keep on keep in’ on’ Next. I outlined that concern in your packet on page 16. Next. Blast it all! Do you want to be successful or not?!

“Time to vote. What say you?”

Journal: How effective was my last persuasive speech?

Consider these questions: Which solution causes everyone to unite? How important is swaying public opinion? How can my passion become my leverage?

Blessings Always!

Tarot Card of the Day-King of Swords: How Can I Get an Eagle Eye View of the Situation?

20140317 154154 Tarot Card of the Day King of Swords: How Can I Get an Eagle Eye View of the Situation?

1/78th of the Gilded Tarot-Royale by Ciro Marchetti

“You might think that because my throne is among the clouds, I am too far removed from the comings and goings of my the people within my realm. That is a great observation and I applaud your critical thinking skills, friend! The reason I had mt throne constructed high above the mountainous Swords region of my subjects is simple. As the King of Swords, I need to see everything that goes on within my realm. When I was younger, I thought this meant sitting in on strategy meetings and the like with mt most trusted advisers.

“In this way, I can see problems and disputes almost bef0re they happen. Look there! The baker and the florist are about to have a row. How can I tell? The baker always pivots with his left foot right before storming off in a huff. The florist always says, ‘Why I’ll be!’ before he starts pruning a bit too vigorously. From this angle, I can see it all. You’re thinking, ‘You don’t need to be so removed from your people.’ That’s true. I don’t, but it makes spotting and analyzing these patterns much easier!

“Excuse me, my son is calling. One moment.

“‘Hello. Yes, alright. No, if you do that, then they will have a reason to act. Try talking about her children. That will open her up when you need to present your views later. No, don’t ask about her third child. Just the others. Very good. I know you’ll do well. Keep your wits about you. Love you. Bye.’

“He always calls before going in to a summit meeting. He’s not asking for advice. No, he wants to get a feel for the room to know best how to proceed. He’s a chip off the old block, that’s for sure!

“‘Keep your wits about you’ is my family’s motto you could say. We say it to remind ourselves that we are at our best when mentally sharp. Ready for anything, that’s me!”

Journal: What do I notice when I remove myself from the thick of things?

Consider these questions: How can I get an eagle eye view of the situation? When was the last time I made a strategy in advance? How far ahead does my plan reach?

Blessings!

The Heart of Faerie Oracle Deck Interview

20140314 103555 The Heart of Faerie Oracle Deck Interview

The Heart of Faerire Oracle by Brian and Wendy Froud

Here we have the Heart of Faerie Oracle Interview by husband and wife team, Brian and Wendy Froud. You might know Brian from his work on Labyrinth (his son Toby was the baby half-brother of Sarah in that movie). Now, he and his wife have dipped their toes into deck creation.

Let’s see how they did!

Starting with the second (middle) column.

1. Tell me about yourself. What is your most important characteristic?

The Green Man: I am nature. I bring wind, rain, and rainbows to you. I am growth.

2. What are your strengths as a deck?

The Lady of Sorrows: I remember every little thing. I have everything stored away. I am an internal memory drive for sensitive feelings.

3. What are your limits as a deck?

Tink: I am driven to voice my opinion. I am assertive. I am independent!

On to the first (left) column.

4. What do you being to the table–what are you here to teach me?

The Lord of the Forest: Now is the time. Go forth and do something! I am the restless feeling within.

5. How can I best learn from and collaborate with you?

The Song: I am present in creation. Even now, as you are typing this, I am the force that chooses the words. I connect words and bring them together to create something big from little things.

6. What do you want to ask of me?

The Returning: Shift your patterns around. Try looking at things backwards, sideways, and curled around themselves. Change grandly.

7. What do you expect me to bring to the table–what can I teach you?

The Lady of Joy: I expect pure enthusiasm. Nothing more than unbounded excitement and nothing less than absolute giddiness. Be both excited and nervous: nervicited! icon biggrin The Heart of Faerie Oracle Deck Interview

8. Using only three words, how would you describe yourself

The Heartless Love: Abandonment. Heartbreak. Apathy.

9. What is the potential outcome of our working relationship?

The Lady of Faith: Here, take my armor. Let me help to empower you. It’s quite alright: I have more than enough self-worth for one faerie!

Love the deck? Get it from: Alibris for $5 USD, World of Froud.com (the Frouds store) for $18.97 USD. When possible, I will link to Alibris because they have the lowest prices of any online bookstore that I have come across.

Blessings Always!

Genevieve
