WOW! Three days in a row of the challenge questions! WOO! For those of you new to the challenge, WELCOME! I’ve been having loads of fun doing it, and it’s helped me learn a bit about myself along the way. Happy blogging everyone!
#23: What question do you most often ask the deck (or, ask on behalf of another)?
It’s a three way tie:
- Does he/she really love me?
- Is he/she cheating on me?
- What did I do wrong this time? (Or any variation thereof.)
When these questions pop up, I put down the tarot and reach for my Universal Love (UL) and my Universal Wisdom (UW) oracle decks. At lot of times, the people that ask any of these three are highly insecure in their decisions and relationships…. especially concerning themselves. The UL deck I do when I can clearly see without using the cards that there are self love issues going on. The root of all our interactions with the world begins inside ourselves. At least, that’s my belief on the matter. When you love yourself, when you are confident in your own abilities, then the insecurities start breaking down and you can see things that you were blind to before. Love begins with the self. Then it radiates outward and draws love in. When I am dealing with the “What did I do wrong this time?” type of questions…. I’ll use the UW deck. These kinds of questions come up so often that I use these decks as shortcuts. The imagery is far less involved than the tarot, and I can get short and to the heart of the matter at hand with less excuses, less flowery interpretation and language, and faster due to less scratching around in the dark and attempting to explain the minute details to the questioner about numbers and reversals and such. Oracle decks, I find, are also very blunt. And with these kinds of questions, if you want the honest truth, you need the most blunt and direct instrument possible to get through that big old wall of insecurity.
