Changing a Negative Reading: Create a Mandala (Rachel Pollack)

In today’s episode of Sightsee the Tarot, we explore a post-reading exercise that Rachel Pollack recommends in her book Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom, one of the most influential tarot books in the last four decades.

Companion blog post:

After you’ve done a tarot reading for yourself, using any spread of your choice, return to this video and follow the steps to create a tarot mandala out of the cards from your reading or, if you want to modify the energies revealed by that reading, use an entirely new set of cards as an act of magic.
