Okay so I woke up this morning with a lingering sense of emotion from what I was dreaming about, which strangely enough happened to be scary, but not when you think about it, anyway needless to say I have been left with a lingering feeling of foreboding. Which got me to thinking of the cards for some reason, don't ask me why, my brain tends to run in circles and bump into the walls from time to time and this was one of those times. Anyway the thought occurred to me that it is time once more for a tarot guild post and since I was not feeling rather creative or had anything in mind, I decided this would work.

So what is the actual question in all that rambling? Have dreams ever lead you to confirm your dreams via the cards, if so were you receiving the same sort of messages from both? Or even perhaps how do signs and signals in your dreams seem to relate to some of the signs and signals that the tarot produces?


And also since it is February and V-day is just around the corner (I don't celebrate it even though I am married, but I know many do) so I figure for discussion purposes tell me about any V-day tarot stories you have. Also do you have any decks that work better with this sort of question than your other decks?

For me I had a reading for a friend that was done in a general way and it happened to foretell that she was going to marry the guy I set her up on a blind date with, or so she says. It also told of a large medical problem that we didn't connect it with until after it happened, and then it was the oh... that's what that meant sort of reaction. I have also had a reading for another friend predict a relationship with a crack addict ex-roomate I had. So far so good with the luck of the accuracy for romance readings, not so much with the outcome of the romances. That is pretty much it for me, but yeah and now time to quit rambling.

I've definitely had some dreams that have caused me to pull out the cards and do some reading right there on the spot. This usually happens when I have the kind of dreams that cause me to suspect that I or someone I care about might be in some sort of trouble.

As far as romantic readings go, I used to try to read for myself all the time, and I'd get frustrated as hell because it would be like "Nope. Nothing happening for you any time soon." Also, I read for one of my former roommates when he'd just had a really promising first date, but cards kept coming up that made me say to him "Ok. This dude is seriously just showing off. He is a peacock." It only took another day or two for his true colors to come out, and quickly be dumped. LOL

I find that when I read for myself I generally do okay unless it is something I am very emotional about to begin with, but if I ask questions around the issue rather that straight at it, I can get some incite and some decent readings, but if I hit it straight on the cards will give me random stuff I didn't care about in the first place and then start not making sense.

Generally I pull the cards out and read for myself only if I have a distinct feeling that I really need some answers. It is really like a pit of my stomach gut reaction to things. If I just read the cards to read for no real reason then I end up getting gibberish a lot and or stuff that is generally mundane things I already knew.
