Interview Tarot: Everyday Witch

I’m gonna try this out with a deck I bought a while back, but have never taken the time to interview — the Everyday Witch by Deborah Blake. And I’m not sure how to interpret the answers this deck gave me. Especially the first question-

  1. Tell me about yourself. What is your most important characteristic?
  2. What are your strengths as a deck?
  3. What are your limits as a deck?
  4. What are you here to teach me?
  5. How can I best learn and collaborate with you?
  6. What is the potential outcome of our working relationship?

How would you read this interview?

Hmmm, let’s see :smiley_cat:
Here’s my interpretation

Ten of Swords – Brutal honesty, showing difficult things as they are, not sugarcoating things

Ten of Pentacles – Practical advice

Ace of Cups – Not very good with emotions (not so gentle?)

Four of Cups – Humility, learning to confront difficult realities and weak points

The Moon – Self-reflection, learning to separate truth from illusion

The Star – A renewed sense of hope that’s built on more stable ground

Hello,

10 of swords as the most important characteristic:

Swords are about thoughts, intellect, and conflict. 10s are ends and beginnings of a cycle.

That which is chasing you has caught up to you and it is now over.

There is a black feather dropping from the raven. Feathers are typically messages from the spirit world. Black can indicate protection and spiritual wisdom.

This deck will help you deal with the transformations that you are meant to go through. It can help you work through your fears and make your spirit stronger.

This deck will ask you to stop avoiding the thresholds you are meant to cross. It will help you see where you are being a victim and ask you to let that go. It will ask you to face your fears. Your are protected and guided.

10 of pentacles- it will help you find the best parts of you, to help you with your legacy. It will have a focus on progress towards larger goals and support you in your connections with loved ones and community.
Its eye is on the long game.

Ace of Cups-symbolizes love, renewal, rebirth

This deck may not give you a sense of inner peace or a sense of profound love probably because it is asking you to do the work of facing your fears. This deck may not be giving you reminders that love is all around you. Its focus is not on asking you to nurture yourself.

Four of cups

Stop dwelling and focus on what is being offered. Focus on the present. Be open to receiving. Deal with the pain of the past so you can be open to receiving the gifts of the present.

Moon
Access your subconscious and watch for self deception. Delve into your unconscious beliefs and emotions be open to seeing how they colour your perception and be open to shifting them.
Listen to your highest wisdom, your intuition, the part of you that is deeper than your unconscious patterns/perceptions.

Star

Shine! Doing the work you are asked to do you will have a sense of renewed hope.
Being your authentic self. Finding your way and being able to give back.

Overall, I’d say this deck will help you get over some stumbling blocks and help you connect with your true self. You just may not feel like there is a love being brought with the readings. A suggestion- pull out your super supportive oracle deck (if don’t have I suggest you get one)and ask for an overall energy for the reading. That way, if the reading is difficult you can still feel the love. :purple_heart:

Hope that helps!

Aww. You flatter me. :black_heart:

Maybe it’s just my mood right now, but I’m feeling a bit weird about this. It looks like your deck may have its own specific meanings for some of these cards. But from what I know of mine… This is what I think. (My apologies if none of the following makes sense. :sweat_smile:) :black_heart:

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

To me, the Ten of Swords sounds like a deck that will help you confront and endure life’s difficulties. It’s a deck that heralds fresh starts and dramatic change toward a brighter future after all of the hardships of the past, present, and future. With some of this hardship, it may even be this deck that will guide you toward and through it as part of your journey with it.

  1. What are your strengths as a deck?

The Ten of Pentacles seems to indicate how balanced the deck is between spiritual and material things. Yet, it also promises guidance that will lead to bright abundance if you listen.

  1. What are your limits as a deck?

The Ace of Cups sounds like it’s saying its limitation is within the realm of emotions and romance. It might not be the deck to go to for a practical way to deal with such things.

  1. What are you here to teach me?

The Four of Cups indicates that this deck may want to teach you how to see the good in life, reflect more deeply, be more aware of your emotional states, and so on.

  1. How can I best learn and collaborate with you?

The Moon would indicate that you will need to learn to see through miscommunications, traumas, and misunderstandings that might cloud your interpretations of your readings with this deck. It’s encouraging you to seek out and pay attention to all the available knowledge and better understand your circumstances, environment, and, ultimately, the answers you seek.

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

The Star promises new beginnings, opportunities, liberation, and freedom, and thus, what this deck promises to provide. Embark upon your journey with this deck—navigate new experiences, find clarity, and discover a sense of purpose—and on the other side of the struggles you face, these are the things you will find.

Omg absolutely brilliant interpretations @starborn @Phoenix_Rose @CelestiaMoon . I’m still quite new to tarot and yesterday I felt my head was a bit clouded when I saw these and didn’t think that far. Now I feel more confident with the purpose of this deck and what it’s trying to convey to me. I’ve been meditating with it for a while and now everything make sense thanks to you ladies. Much love! :pink_heart:

Okay, I’ll give this a shot! I haven’t read everyone else’s interpretations yet, so if this is repetitive or makes no sense then just disregard it :joy:

10 of Swords: A card of finality and hitting rock bottom, I’d interpret this as the deck being really good at telling you the truth and not sugar-coating any readings. It’s ready to help you, even when the truth hurts. After all, when you’ve hit the bottom, the only way out is up.

– 10 of Pentacles: Another card of finality, the 10 of Pentacles brings about abundance and growth. It’s a card of doing the work and getting the rewards. It’s also a card that signifies putting in the work over the long-term. This deck isn’t afraid to get you to look at the bigger picture and help you realize that sometimes the long-term goals are what matter.

– Ace of Cups: I would be interested to see what this card says after you’ve been reading with this deck for a while. The Ace of Cups is a blossoming of new emotions and energy. As an animist, I believe that our everyday objects have the potential for Spirit and Life – this card in this position makes me think that the deck you have has a “young soul”, so to speak. It may be a bit naive and happy-go-lucky, which is funny when connected with the 10 of Swords from the first question. While telling the truth may be easy for this deck, it seems that it may also try to approach everything with compassion.

– Four of Cups: A card of apathy, the Four of Cups shows up when you’re feeling bored or disconnected. In this position, I’d interpret this card as one that will help guide you toward a more connected life. It might help you meditate, journal, and contemplate the world around you to help you feel more attuned with nature, your own body, and everything else around you.

– The Moon: I feel like this deck is gonna touch on some shadows. The Moon is a card of hidden knowledge, releasing fears, and embracing the darkness. It generally shows up when you’re afraid of something and I relate this card to shadow work pretty heavily. It seems this deck may want to help you through your shadows.

– The Star: I mean, you can’t get more positive than this, I don’t think! :laughing: After seeing that the deck itself isn’t afraid to be blunt but will approach you with compassion, and since The Moon made an appearance, too, I’d say the outcome of your relationship with this deck is a pretty positive one. There’s potential for hope and a guiding light through the darkness!


Okay, off to read the replies… :laughing:

I love how there’s a common thread in all of our interpretations, but we each bring in something different too :sparkling_heart: Feels like this kind of of group interpretation would be fun and insightful with other things too :pink_heart:

Much love you you too @Nacurro and I’m happy that you’re bonding with your new deck :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I agree, would be great to be able to practise more. :pink_heart: Especially when you get stuck, it’s nice to get other beautiful soul’s input.

Much love to you Celestial :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
