Sasha Graham’s Tarot Card a Day Blog – Why Tarot is Sexy!

Why Tarot is Sexy . . .

Intimacy is sexy.

two-of-cups  Reading Tarot for yourself or another person creates immediate intimacy. Social niceties are thrown aside like clothes and you plunge into a heady level of communication.

Reading Tarot for someone, you see him or her for who they really are.

 Don’t know about you but all I’ve ever wanted (aside from a city home, country home, happy family, two vacations a year, and world peace) was to be understood. To be heard. To be seen.

The Truth is sexy.

ace-of-swordsTarot creates a direct line to the truth. How honest can we day we are with ourselves? With others? A peek into Tarot demands, insists on truth. Especially when we read for ourselves! Constant practice with Tarot sharpens our internal bullshit thermometer.

When you show the world you are a force to be reckoned with, when you call a spade a spade – or in Tarot a Sword a Sword – that is damn sexy.

Secrets are sexy. 

06-the-loversWe all have secrets. What do you hide from the world? When we use Tarot to examination of our deeper selves, we are reminded of the little nuggets we have tucked away.

Dig just a little deeper. What’s behind your knowing smile?

One of the sexiest men is a good-looking man but what makes him extra yummy is his devilish inner life. He looks at you; it appears he’s thinking about what he’d like to do to you in bed. Saying one thing while thinking another is an intoxicating mix.

A juicy secret or two will always add interesting subtext to your life. Don’t have any clandestine ideas? Use the Tarot to help you come up with one! Start with The Lovers card . . .

Whispers in the dark are sexy.

Tarot is always whispering to you. Tarot weaves truths, stories, secrets, tales. All you need to do is slow down and listen. 

Candlelight is sexy.

seven-of-wandsDo you know anyone who doesn’t look better while the soft glow of a flickering candle caresses their face?

Doesn’t the Seven of Wands look like he’s lighting a bunch of torches?

Light a few tapers and flip a few cards and take a closer look at yourself or someone you love.

Reaching for your higher self is sexy.

20-judgement Reading Tarot requires you ask more from your intuition you might ordinarily do in every day life. You reach higher that you normally would.

You start igniting your intuition and you realize there are more parts of your psyche, higher parts or yourself. As your consciousness expands, your understanding of the world expands.

You see more, experience more, and become enraptured by the beauty and the wonder of life.

Caught in the moment, there is no room to judge yourself. When you stop judging yourself that’s sexy!

Your Shadow Self is sexy.

18-the-moon We all possess a deep, wet, emotional, subconscious well – similar to the pool pictured on the Moon Tarot Card. It is out of this well our deepest desires spring. If you keep accessing your shadow well and are brave in facing what you discover – you’ll find depth and shades to your personality you never imagined existed. Self discovery mixed with a tinge of darkness is sexy.

Trusting your Instincts is sexy.

knight-of-cupsEach Tarot card has hundreds of potential meanings. With practice, you learn to trust your first instincts when interpreting a card or spread. You discover, usually, your first instinct you had was correct.

Trusting yourself with Tarot will spill into your everyday life. Your split second decision-making becomes sharper and clearer.

When you trust your gut, you make decisions authentic to your true self. You become confident and confidence is sexy.

Knowing who you are is sexy.

21-the-world_s You knowingly toss your head, you dance through life with ease, you laugh with abandon, you understand your desires, happily reach for them, you enjoy yourself and are a pleasure to be around. When you are satiated, satisfied and happy, you are a pleasure to be around.

Tarot is a mirror always reflecting you back to you.

Use Tarot to gain greater knowledge about who you are and what you want. Cause when you know who you are – that is super sexy!

    I’ve always told my students that reading Tarot is the second most intimate thing you can do with another…..

    great post sasha!!

    this does remind me of a problem I have recently come across while teaching myself tarot:

    Every book I read refers to tarot readers as being female – and female ONLY. I am really beginning to take offense at the blatant sexism. I have had 2 professional readings in my life, both from males, and both were extremely personal and accurate. I know I am reading too much into this, but I was just curious as to your thoughts on the situation. It’s not like I’m going to give up or anything melodramatic like that, because I have dove in head first and its too late to turn back now! hehehe

    David – I hear you!

    I’m working with a metaphysical writing consultant while developing my Tarot book. She’s pointed out that many Tarot writers (for some odd reason) write exclusively for women. As if women are the only mysterious intuitive people out there! We know that’s not the case.

    I feel your pain and will make every effort to remind my Tarot friends and colleagues, that it ain’t just chicks diving headfirst into Tarot. One of the most profound, helpful readings I ever got was from a guy . . .

    So no, don’t give up. Winds of tremendous change are upon us, in the economy and the world at large. The face of Tarot is changing too.

    Who knows what the future will bring? I know my Tarot future includes delicious, introspective and thoughtful men!

    I’ll keep writing for all of you 🙂

    Bravo! Way cool piece. I had never really thought about tarot being sexy until I read your post. You are so right. As always, you have such great insight which is why I enjoy reading your posts. I look forward to your book.
