Shadow Work with the Tarot
Show Notes

In this episode, we will be looking at using tarot for Shadow Work.  The 'shadow' is the side of your personality that contains all the parts of yourself that you don't want to admit to having, the parts that we're insecure about, ashamed of, or frustrated with and therefore repress.   Shadow work is the practice of loving what is, and setting the shame and judgements free.
*The Tarot is a great tool for self-reflection but it does not replace professional help*

Decks Used: The Penumbra Tarot
                              The Muses of Tarot
Practice What You Learned:
- Try out these spreads I made for the Iron Pentacle, Rust Pentacle & Guilded Pentacle
- Create emotional stacks:
      1) Pick a card with the image(s) that represent your present here and now              feeling as you recall a difficult situation.  Now scan for a “right now”                      feeling that underlies yours emotion and find a card that represents                      that. 

       2) Sink down deeper, can you find another feeling hidden beneath those                   two? Continue if you need to add more cards

            Now look at this stack and what stands out to you? Journal your                              responses
