Lower Prices on Tarot Readings & Coaching Packages

IMG_0702When you love what you do, you want to do more of it. And I really love doing tarot readings and coaching. I’ve seen, time and again, how much these tools can help people tap into their inner wisdom and create lives they are truly passionate about. I’d like to help more people do that.

That’s why I’ve decided to lower the prices of my tarot reading and coaching services. No promises on how long I can do this but, for now, I’m offering the following:

Tarot Readings Via Email — $9

20 Minute Tarot Readings — $16

40 Minute Tarot Readings — $29

I’m offering lower prices on my coaching packages, too. Come check it all out at www.hellojenniferwayne.com. And, as always, don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.

New Beginnings by the Cards: The Fool

IMG_1188It’s January, the beginning of a new year, new adventures and, for many of us, new resolutions. What do you want to change, embrace or explore? Whatever your goals and intentions for 2015, let the Fool guide you.

A traditional tarot deck begins with a card commonly called the Fool. It may seem a strange choice, since the tarot is all about wisdom and guidance, and yet at its very beginning is a card that often shows an individual leaping off of a cliff, full of innocence and optimism and without, perhaps, much caution.

So why is this card perfect for any new journey? Because whenever we decide to take the risk of trying something new, we are optimistically stepping into the unknown. We can’t know what obstacles we’ll face. We can’t know how or when we’ll meet our goal. But forward we go, full of daring, willing to try–and that is what makes the journey possible.

For example: if your goal is to be healthier, you’re beginning a new way of living, one that may take perseverance, trial and error and a willingness to learn from what works and what doesn’t. The greater your ability to tackle the challenges, try new things, and accept that you are not yet an expert, the greater your odds of achieving victory.

With any new beginning, it’s time to leave behind what no longer serves you and look forward to another way of living. So take the risk, follow your instincts and let the adventure begin!

Looking for some personal guidance for your new year’s resolutions? A wonderful question for the cards is “how can I increase my chances of success?” regarding your particular goal, whether that goal is to learn a new language, lose weight, quit smoking or anything else.

Try This: Mini-Meditations

IMG_1613Once a day, or whenever you’d like to live with a bit more grace and ease, try taking a mini-meditation break. It’s very simple, takes only a few moments and can completely change your entire day.

I like to set a 2-5 minute timer on my iPhone, sit down on the floor if I can, close my eyes and just breathe. In and out. Watching the rhythm, and giving myself a short break from whatever life is throwing my way. I place my hands on my knees, palms down if I feel I could use some grounding, palms up if I could use some energy or insight. That’s all it takes, and it never fails to bring me a touch of peace.

With so many things in life, we assume that we need big solutions, big changes, extreme measures. And often we do need to do something, change something–but that something may not be as daunting as we think.  A moment of quiet breathing may be all it takes. If you meditate regularly, these short sessions are an added treat, and a way to weave your mediation practice more fully into your day. If you’re a new or (like many of us) an inconsistent meditator, these mini-sessions offer a convenient opening into mindfulness. Without the pressure of meditating for sustained amounts of time, you may find yourself going deeper more quickly and easily.

I invite you to stop, sit and breathe. Just for a moment. Just for one, precious moment. Notice how precious it is. Notice again. And then let it go.

Tarot 101

IMG_1615Interested in learning how to read tarot cards?

Begin by buying a tarot deck. Pick anything you like and feel drawn to. My first deck was The Goddess Tarot by Kris Waldherr (it was the only one I used for well over a year, which helped me to get very familiar with those images). Just make sure you choose a deck that depicts a scene on every card (these are commonly based on the Rider-Waite system). Don’t choose an oracle deck—although these are also wonderful systems of their own, they are unique and are not as universal as tarot.

Once you’ve chosen a deck, and given yourself some time to flip through the images, begin by choosing one card each day. See what you notice in the card, then look up the card’s interpretation. Every deck comes with a small book of basic interpretations; you can also choose a tarot book you like and use that. Multiple interpretations never hurt. And then see what comes up during the day, and how it might relate to that card. At the end of the day, see what you can learn and how you can improve your interpreting skills. You might also keep a journal to record your observations and deepen your understanding.

That’s it! You can go much, much deeper, of course, but this is a good way to get acquainted with the system.

More questions about how to get started? Leave them below! I’m also planning a Tarot 101 tele-course for early 2015—stay tuned!

Some tarot books I recommend:

Tarot for Life: Reading the Cards for Everyday Guidance and Growth by Paul Quinn

Tarot Wisdom: Spiritual Teachings and Deeper Meanings by Rachel Pollack

Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom: A Book of Tarot, also by Rachel Pollack (this one is more in-depth, but it’s a true classic).

Ready to go deeper? Try The Tarot: History, Symbolism, and Divination by Robert M. Place. This is a fascinating exploration of the history of tarot, as well as a unique system of reading the cards.

A few of my favorite decks: 

Vanessa Tarot by Lynyrd Narciso (my current go-to deck) is whimsical and full of pop-culture references.

The Halloween Tarot by Kipling West uses pumpkins, ghosts, imps and bats—playful and fun for any time of year.

The Original Rider Waite Tarot Pack is a good choice (this is the deck used by most tarot books).

The Morgan Greer Tarot Deck is wonderful for its simple, clear imagery, especially if you feel overwhelmed by too many symbols.

I also recommend Janet Boyer’s website—she writes in-depth, thorough reviews of many popular tarot decks and always includes pictures of several cards.

Know Thyself: Using Oracles as a Guide for Your Own Inner Wisdom

IMG_1694The most famous oracle of the ancient world was located in Delphi, Greece. Above the entrance were these words: Know Thyself.

This is the secret of all oracles and methods of divination. They do not seek to tell us what to do or what will be, but rather help us understand ourselves more fully, so that we can understand and make better use of our lives.

Tarot cards can focus your attention and crystallize the issues that are perplexing you. Symbols (and symbolic language, such as myths, legends and other story-telling) can deepen our understanding of problems and prompt creative solutions.

Tarot cards in particular are heavily loaded with complex symbols and imagery. Although their origin is uncertain, they have developed over time and grown in mastery and wisdom. They are a powerful aid for self-knowledge, and particularly useful for developing intuition and a broader perspective. Like a good life coach, tarot cards can help you look at things with a new perspective and suggest creative solutions to problems, all within a safe space that welcomes and encourages your own inner wisdom to shine.

They are also a powerful aid for life coaching and counseling. Consider the perspective and advice you receive from tarot cards as you would advice from a wise friend: you don’t have to follow the advice, but you always learn something.

Whether you’re diving into the world of tarot cards, life coaching or both, always remember one thing: when you hear truth, it feels like freedom, and sounds like love and compassion. Trust that. If what you hear feels like fear or sadness, your understanding of the message is incomplete. Look deeper. True guidance is always leading you towards joy.
