I have always read the Osho Zen Tarot rather than any other Tarot decks. I read other cards, and love them too, but the Osho Zen have always called to me over the others.
It all started many more years ago than I care to remember. I got a call from a friend who owned a store called “Moonstone” in Hollywood, just outside Belfast. He knew that, at that time, I was not attracted to the Tarot, instead focussing on working with Ascended Masters and Angels.
But for some reason he felt he had to call me to tell me that he had booked a reader to come over from Glastonbury for a couple of days.
I was going to say ‘no’, because I really didn’t feel drawn to the Tarot at that time, but something made me change my mind and make a booking. I don’t know who was more surprised at me making that appointment; Mark who had fully expected me to tell him to go shake his head or me.
When I met the reader, and I don’t recall her name but I can describe her down to the last detail even now, I knew it was right. Everything just seemed to fall into place and I felt totally at peace as we sat down around a small table which she had covered with a navy altar cloth, decorated with crescent moons and stars.
She shuffled the cards and when I asked her to stop she covered the table with cards.
And within minutes I was in tears.
She didn’t do a spread. She just dealt the cards and it was as if she was reading the story of my life. I felt really drawn to two particular cards; “Ice-olation” and “No-thingness” and I did something that all readers hate. I lifted the cards to hold them.
I remember how she sort of twitched as I did that but she let me hold them for a few moments before asking me to set them down again. I know, now, why she didn’t want me to touch her cards but at the time I had to.
That reading really helped me shift forward. I had reached a block and I think that was why Mark was pushed to call me, because the Universe knew I needed that reading.
I bought a set of Osho Zen Tarot cards that afternoon (great advertising, Mark!) and within a short time felt confident enough to read for close friends. Then I just had to read for anyone and everyone who asked for it. And that same deck of cards have moved with me from Northern Ireland to Canada, across the country twice so far as I move with my wanderlust driven husband and will go with us as we move to yet another Province in July.
The deck gives a really clear mirror of where a person is right now, a really clear view of what is here right now, without judgement or comparison; the reason I was so drawn to them. They do then go on to show what is coming and to give suggestions on how to bring into your life what you need and want. But they are mainly about becoming aware, understanding why we are in the situation we are in and what we can do to tune in to our own intuition, sensitivity, courage and receptivity. They are so full of love and compassion.
I feel that when someone is looking for a set to cards to read they have to let the cards choose them; spend time with the decks on offer and let your fingers wander over the boxes. Your heart will guide you to the right set, in my opinion. And now, while I read other cards, such as the Angels, Faeries and Unicorns, I still find only the Osho Zen to call to me from the Tarot. I enjoy having others read other Tarot for me, but I don’t feel they are right for me to read and that is good. We all have to follow our own paths.
