TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You may find your creative juices depleted if you put off nurturing and cultivating them in favor of making others happy. Stay juicy!!
  • Sometimes family obligations and tending to their needs leaves little time for tending to our own. Try to make some time each day dedicated to sharpening your creative saw.
  • As the song goes ” you can’t please everyone so you’ve got to please yourself “. Perhaps this isn’t a viable option all the time, but your needs and passions should certainly be given priority once in a while.

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Take this chance to unleash your creative energies by working with others.
  • What projects would best suit your creative nature? What would best satisfy you on a deep, soul level?
  • What types of co-creators & partners would best suit your work style? Consider this before committing to a project.

Tarot Hunter’s Salt Rounds

  • Are you hiding yourself from changes that are necessary? Doing so might be negatively impacting your creative energy.
  • If you wish to unleash your full creative potential, achieve mastery in your desired field then you may need to release things that no longer serve you.
  • Effective leadership requires more than charisma and glib promises. It’s possible to transform oneself into a strong, positive leader but it requires commitment and dedication.

TarotHunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Embrace new ideas and concepts.  Let them lead you to new studies and learning opportunities.
  • Ground yourself so that all these new ideas coming at you don’t become overwhelming.  Taking on too much at once often leads to burnout.
  • Enthusiasm and excitement can be great motivators but if you don’t have the willingness to do the work they will go nowhere.

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You don’t need to take on this challenge alone.  Allow yourself to find help and support from others who care.
  • Your defenses may be well-developed and serve a purpose but they also isolate you.  Be open to alternative paths and methods
  • The image of the rugged individualist is often self-defeating and illusory.  SEeking help when needed does not imply weakness.  In fact, being able to ask for assistance may show a strength of character and willingness to be vulnerable and exposed that the “rugged individualist” fears.

TarotHunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Creative energy needs to be channeled in a positive direction.
  • Practicality and common sense should lead the way in your quest.
  • Slow & steady might be the winning combination to victory.

  • Working with others, collaborating on creative evdeavors, can bring stability and solidity to things.  Our strengths and weaknesses can be balanced out and ameliorated by theirs.

Before writing this blog post I asked the universe how I should approach this topic; where should my focus be? I drew the Page of Wands Rx – all sorts of potential creative and dynamic energy being blocked or channeled in wrong directions. Hmm, so is writing about the dark nooks and crannies of my soul focusing in the wrong direction or is are the dark nooks and crannies of my soul created when I channel my energies in inappropriate or unhealthy directions? I’m choosing to interpret the Page of Wands Rx as indicating the latter – blocking my creative energies creates the dark nooks & crannies.

So, now that I’ve established that where am I going with it? I’m doing to dive right in the deep end. Reality is that I’m not an especially introspective person – at least not on a daily basis. I tend to be more of a doer than a planner. I can plan but it’s not my first instinct. My tendency is to dive into the deep end of any endeavor and then just figure my way out. It’s been relatively successful so I’ve had little incentive to change this pattern. Which also explains the reversed Page of Wands – when I take on a new project or creative impulse I tend to jump right in to things. Poking around in my dark places is rather counter-intuitive to me.

I will say that using Tarot has been a great way to sneak into my subconscious. I can be quite good at rationalizing and intellectualizing my actions. Deflection and denial can be quite powerful so the only way for me to subvert them is a tool like Tarot cards. Tarot forces me to hold a mirror up to myself and address what I see. It often takes more than one attempt but eventually even my stubbornness cannot hold out against the slaps upside the head that Tarot offers. Each deck offers different insights and perspectives.

I realize now that I’ve used Tarot as a therapeutic tool. Despite my MA in forensic psychology, I have a resistance to therapy. I resist believing that I need another person’s input to my therapeutic process. I hate being told what to do, even when I know the suggestions might be useful. I am one of those people who has to stumble through the jungle on my own. I don’t value the experience unless it’s first hand. It’s the same reason I rarely find self-help books helpful – I may be glad that others have found their way to healing and wholeness but I need to forge my own path. I also have no interest in mentoring others. If you find something useful in these musings then I’m thrilled. If not, that’s okay too because it helped me.

Over the next few months I’ll probably share more specific tales of this journey through the wilds of my own mind. I don’t know if it will be especially interesting or edifying but I’ll guess time will tell. What I do know is that for some reason I’m compelled to share. Maybe just knowing that they’re not alone out there will help others who have similar experiences. Maybe at the end of the day that’s what helps us all stay a little saner – the knowledge that we are not alone.
