21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card - Step 15 - Dialogs

21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card
Mary K. Greer

In step fifteen of our journey, we explore dialog.

Having a dialog with the tarot card can open yourself up to your many different thoughts and ideas by projecting these hidden aspects onto the card. This process lifts you from your conscious/physical thinking into your higher self's knowledge base.

"A spread often represents these different parts of yourself: the voice from the past, the voice of your hopes and fears, the voice of choice A and the voice of choice B."

Mary K. Greer offers an example of possible dialog with The Hanged Man.

Activity 15:1: Dialog with your chosen card. Speak with the figures and the objects.

Me: You shield yourself - from what?

Two of Swords: The truth, your truth. You hide from decisions, from choices. I'm here to help you continue to do so.

Me: What if I'm ready to let down my guard?

Two of Swords: Drop the swords and the feather will fall, along with the other armor, and your wings will spread.

Me: Swords, what are your purposes?

Two of Swords: To keep others from making you choose before you are ready.

Me: Wings, what are you for?

Two of Swords: To lift you when you are ready.

Me: Birds, what is your purpose?

Two of Swords: To guide you when you are ready.

Me: What advice can you give me to help me to step out of the shielding darkness of the feather?

Two of Swords: Trust in the birds to guide you, your wings to lift you. Trust in yourself.
