Faith, Spirituality Or Psychic Progression:
As with the upright card, the indication here is that you are or ought to be very much concerned with spirituality now (even if you don’t have anything approximating a ‘traditional’ religious belief. You will benefit from making a point to take regular time, even if you don’t attend a ‘traditional’ house of worship – to quiet yourself and allow your spirit some space to expand. What matters here is the regularity of it – whether it’s daily, weekly; whatever you can make time for. You will see changes in your life and outlook as a result of making this effort. If you have not the faintest idea of where or how to begin, reach out to others, read, experiment with different approaches.

Elements of the Psychic World: Both Katie King and John King appeared for the final time in February 1930 at a séance conducted b y Thomas Hamilton in Winnipeg.

Tarot Triumphs: I have kept the title Pope, however, rather than substitute the rather grandiose term Hierophant, which is sometimes used, or even High Priest. I feel that these take us too far away from the original meaning of a public figure of religious authority. The Pope is a figure we are all familiar with, even though he has limited impact in today’s world, compared to Renaissance Europe. As I have mentioned, the papal figures were too much for some Protestant regions, which replaced both cards with the classical deities Juno and Jupiter. I have retained the High Priestess, as the Grimaud pack does, rather than use versions such as the female pope or Papess, both odd and somewhat clumsy in English. Although female pope might match Pope as nomenclature, I believe that High Priestess represents her function better and is more in line with what was intended at the time, as we shall see shortly.
Tarot Triumphs: Certain things follow from this: chiefly, that a Tarot spread must be read at the time it’s laid out. Do not lay it out and come back to it later. Do not revisit a reading that you did earlier. We read the cards as best we can according to the conditions of that moment and need to accept that we cannot perfect this at a later stage. Many is the time that I have thought of something afterward that I wished I had said to the person for whom I gave the reading, but I have learnt to be firm with myself. If I didn’t think of it at the time, then it has no place in the reading now. If I speak of it later it counts as unsolicited advice, and that is not part of the Tarot reader’s remit.

Reversed Cards: You will notice that not all seventy-eight cards are listed in this appendix. That is because not all the cards fit fully into a planetary alignment. The aces and pages encompass more than one zodiac sign. The knights, queens, and kings share more than one planet. This appendix is a guide to help you take your first steps to the planets and their sun signs.
