Merry meet, everyone!
As mentioned in this week’s Merry Meet Monday news post, today is a very special day…
In honor of the occasion, the Tarosophy Tarot Association has shared a special tarot training exercise. The full exercise and more information can be found on their website World Tarot Day:
High Intensity Tarot Training
In celebration World Tarot Day, we give you a HITT workout written by Tali Goodwin to challenge your living of tarot.
It is suitable for every level of experience, as it is designed to be responsive. You can add extra resistance by using a deck with which you are less familiar or is new to you.
Take the 22 Major Arcana out of your deck.
You will need the deck to be with you all day and access to this list, which is on our Facebook Group and Website.
Turn up one card and place it face-up.
Look up the insight or task associated with that card and do it as soon as you can.
As soon as you have done that card task, turn up the next one and do the task as soon as you can.
Allow the tasks and insights to arise naturally as well as taking action.
Some tasks you may resolve to start and come back in following days to complete or work further with them. The important thing is to make a significant connection between the card and what you do.
This exercise should fit into your usual day although it may disrupt it – allow common-sense at all times.
And if you only do one or two tasks, it might be something you really needed to work on.
 I will see a freedom that I did not see before.
 I will see magic that I did not see before.
 I will explore something that has been a mystery to me.
 I will see a lesson from nature that I did not see before.
 I will exert my will in the world in one conscious decision or action.
 I will teach, help or explain something.
 I will make a commitment in furtherance of a friendship/relationship.
 I will move forward in something that has been deadlocked or halted.
 I will face a fear and do something that requires me to be strong.
 I will spend a moment to myself and do something entirely for myself.
 I will accept and embrace something that has changed or be revolutionary myself.
 I will work to balance something I believe wrong.
 I will try and see a situation in a whole new light, from some totally different perspective.
 I will complete something in order to start anew.
 I will find some compromise in a situation and hold to it.
 I will do something good or resist a temptation – at least, for now.
 I will clear some old stuff out.
 I will find something that inspires me or follow an inspiration a little.
 I will keep myself on my way despite not knowing something.
 I will do something delightful to grow or observe someone who shows me joy and enthusiasm.
 I will make a call today – I will take responsibility for something that works towards a new life.
 I will engage with the world in one particular way that gives me a sense of my place in life.
