A year or two ago, Hilary started a certification process for tapping. This is a process known as the emotional freedom technique (EFT). It’s similar to the rapid eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR) that Lis has been doing. It’s good to work with issues and to clear stresses in our lives. Now, doesn’t that sound a bit like our favorite tool, tarot? It may not solve the problems; however, it can help you change how you feel about it.
So, we’re here with Hilary to learn about her process and how she connects it back to her tarot practice. We even have Hilary take us through a short process of making a consistent card of the day practice.
If you have questions, contact Hilary at her website. Learn more about this on her site’s tapping page. She also has many tapping videos on her YouTube page.
Homework: Try a tapping session, whether it’s the consistent card of the day or another one.

The Cardslingers discuss the meanings of The Moon. At its core, this card represents fear and the unknown. It’s a reminder of all we have gone through in The Tower and Devil cards. Yet, this card tells us to recognize the darkness and to learn the lies. Lean into the darkness, sit with it, and learn from the shadows. 
If you are struggling and need a helpful friend, contact the following groups: NAMI or the Trevor Project

Happy October, everyone. Kicking off the divination month, we dive into the psychic arts, thanks to our listener question from way back when. We discuss the differences between how you can tell if it’s real or not, how to hone it in with practice, and what to do with the information after you get it.
Our listener from the UK says, 
TL, DR: For those of us who are not born gifted in this regard, what can we do to strengthen our intuition and learn to understand what it shows us?
I am a beginner reader who enjoys studying tarot in my spare time. I've bought books by Rachel Pollack, Melissa's book, and Barbara Moore's Tarot Spreads book, and I take time to practice on willing friends.
One thing I know we probably can’t learn from a book is how to nourish and develop our intuition.
I appreciate that some of us on this planet are born with a stronger gift than others, such as clairvoyance or psychic ability, and it amazes me to hear how you all get clear visions and exact information from your readings.
In your opinion, can anything like this be learned, and if so, how do we strengthen and nourish our intuition so we can level up our tarot practice both for ourselves as a healing practice and in reading for others? (I sometimes think I can picture something, a kind of vision or snapshot, that I could communicate to somebody, but then I don't know if it's me inflicting my own ideas on them or if it's my intuition popping up and handing me helpful information.)
Homework: Write what you think the next day will look like in a journal. Do this for two weeks. How accurate are you?

Jaymi’s noticed something interesting happening in the tarot world. There are a lot of decks out there that are renaming cards. For example, some decks rename The Hanged Man to the Hanged One. Suits get renamed; the same with court cards. So, she put it on the kitchen table for Lis and Hilary to give some information. 
It comes down to the intent behind using the tarot, who you are reading for, and how you live. Give permission for gender not to be as important in tarot. Renaming makes their power our own. Take it and own it.
Homework: What are your thoughts on renaming cards? Do you like it? Is it helpful or not?

Tarot is a language. Like any other language, speaking and understanding the components takes time. Today’s listener question asks, 
Are there any cards you straight-up disagree with the description listed in the “little white book”? How did you discover the meaning it has for you?
We recommend that you take in the info when you are new and then branch out and question the experts. Read the cards how you want because you are the master at reading tarot in your style.
Homework: Look at your deck (or decks) and compare the images. Where are the synchronicities, where are the differences? Keep a list of these meanings and add your own.

Some call it the card of hope. Others see it as the calm that comes after the destruction of The Tower. The Star brings healing and space to mend. Now, you are okay; things are safer and softer. In this episode, we dive into our thoughts around this card and pull some examples from our collections. We also discuss how many decks display the central figure nekkid on these decks.
Homework: Look at your Star cards and compare and contrast. Go outside and look at the sky. Be gentle to yourself.
