Hello, my name is Melissa Jo Hill and this is the tiny Tarot podcast, the only podcast where you can get a very tiny tarot reading from me.
It’s like a daily draw but weekly and for your ears.
Gentle listeners, welcome to the first episode of my new podcast and thank you so much for tuning in.
Each week I’ll be doing a very tiny tarot reading for your listening enjoyment.
I’ll be pulling from different decks of cards and sharing a snapshot of the reading on Instagram.
You can search for the hashtag #TinyTarot.
Or just follow me @melissajohill and refresh your feed compulsively till you find it.
If you have questions that you’d like me to answer via a tiny tarot reading on the show, please submit it through my website, MelissaJoHill.com
And if you don’t have a question, I’ll ask one of my own or just make one up.
Today’s question comes from a friend I desperately badgered until she came up with something sufficiently juicy.
She writes, Dear Mel, I recently made a really big lifestyle change because I thought it was in my best interest.
At first everything was great and I was riding high on the waves of newfound health, wellness and happiness.
But once I started to settle into the groove of routine, doubt started creeping in.
Are things really better now or did I just imagine them to be?
Can a tiny to reading help alleviate my uncertainty? Did I make the right choice? Am I doing the right thing?
Signed your Badgered Friend Forever.
Dear BFF, let’s see what the tarot has to say. But before we begin, some show notes. Today’s tarot reading is using the deck The Morgan Greer Tarot. The version that I own was published by Morgan Press in 1979, but the deck is now available through US games in a standard and smaller tin size.
The Reading is a two-card reading based on the heart of the Celtic Cross. In other words, it’s the meat of the matter along with what’s crossing it. You can find more information about the deck and spread in today’s show notes.
The Six of Cups tells me that the choice you made was with the best of intentions. That your heart was in the right place when you made that commitment to try something new and yet for a while it was awesome, like being a kid again, you were feeling a whole different energy and exuberance.
But was it the changes you made or the challenge of changing that was rocking your world?
Meanwhile, the six of Swords is the crossing card. The crux of your dilemma.
You see yourself and your progress as part of a grander journey, but you’re just going with the flow at the moment and not really feeling it.
Here’s the message in that Six of Swords: look up.
This is the long game you’re playing now. The prize you want it so bad–health, wellness, happiness–it’s all there on the horizon.
But overthinking is going to cancel out any over feeling in this case.
Stay true to the course and you’ll get there.
Finally, I just want to point out with the Six of Swords, maybe at first these changes you made were challenging.
Maybe the waters you were testing were choppy, Well BFF, the rapids have eased, the river has straightened and now you get to coast for a bit, but if you’re feeling blue about that, maybe it means you do long for a little more excitement, challenge and change in your life.
So now you tell me what does your inner child long to explore next.
Much love, Mel.
