I’m currently on a mission to complete Calamity’s 30-Day Tarot Challenge. Three in a row! Keep on trucking.
Day 17 – Do you do readings using reversals? Why or why not?
I can… I don’t usually, because I don’t like having to keep track of them, but sometimes someone will shuffle the cards all sorts of caddywhompus and I end up reading reversals all over the place. Good times. The other side to that is that generally I’m an optimist and a storyteller, so having all of the cards upright makes me feel a little bit more comfortable, and then when cards come up for some situations the meanings tend to blur the line between upright and reversed.
Speaking of this, when I was doing quick readings just to test out the new deck, I ended up with one reversed card. I had shuffled, yes, but all of them were upright. There was no possible way I could have had a reversed card, but there was the Star, all upside down and drawing all sorts of attention to herself. It was a bit of a Twilight-Zone moment for me. That was fun.
And with that, I will bid you adieu. May your reversals be more expected than mine. I’ll see you tomorrow!
