Tarot Cards for Brainstorming

Vain Regret: Of the cards
Shirley shared, this is my
favorite: Crying over
what's been spilled,
rather than seeing
what's still full.
Who hasn't done that?
Have you ever considered using Tarot cards to jump start your writing? Brainstorm ideas? Nudge your creativity? Me neither.

Which is why I was so intrigued by Shirley Lechter's presentation on "Brainstorming with Tarot" at the writersandcritters conference. So, as promised, following is a video of her presentation, slightly abridged by me. Please bear with the rough beginning as I had trouble getting all programs to work simultaneously in producing this, but it will give you a snippet of what our conference was like, and I dare say it will have you pondering the Tarot!

A big thank you to Shirley Lechter for sharing!



  1. In fact I really like the title of your post which talk about brainstorming, because it is an important idea for me. I think We should develop this idea and not let people think tarot reading can give all responses without thinking a little.

  2. well said, Diana. exactly what I am thinking too. without a little thinking on ones side, nothing is going to be o.k. by itself. you ought to move, think and do something. get help, but move by yourself.

  3. Diana & liebestarot - thanks for commenting. I'm glad you liked the brainstorming idea.
