Tarot Spreads You Can't Live Without New Age Hipster

An Interview with Madame Pamita

Madame Pamita on New Age Hipster x

I have been a big Madame Pamita fan for years, I adore her energy and her tarot and magic work. I have binged her entire YouTube channel and when I saw she was releasing a new book on the Tarot I knew I had to get her on the blog! :D

So go make a magical tea infusion and get comfy and come dive into Madame Pamita's world for a little while!

She has also given the New Age Hipster readers an incredible offer down below so be sure to read right to the end!

 

I’m so excited about your upcoming book Madame Pamita’s Magical Tarot: Using the cards to make your dreams come true. How will this book help readers to develop their own tarot practice?

I wrote the tarot book that I always wanted to see out there in the world - one that looked at new ways of using the cards beyond doing readings and new ways of looking at each of the cards as a portal to success and happiness. It's a great book for beginners to get a handle on the cards and also a great book for experienced readers to use to look at the cards in a new light. I give exercises for beginner readers to start to get to know the tarot, but there are a lot of in-depth tools, such as the affirmations for each card, that will bring a new viewpoint for even really experienced readers. My editor, the fabulous Judika Illes (who is an amazing author and very experienced tarot reader in her own right), said that I pointed out symbols on the Rider-Waite-Smith that she had never even seen before, so I think anyone who is interested in using the tarot proactively and looking at the cards as keys to solutions will get a lot out of it.

 

How did you first discover and begin working with the tarot?

I got my first deck when I was ten years old! I was in Salem, Massachusetts with my parents and we were in a witch-themed gift shop, probably Laurie Cabot's as this was back in the mid-seventies. My mom said that I could choose a souvenir and I chose a miniature Rider-Waite-Smith deck. I am sure that this is the very first tarot deck I had ever seen. I began playing with the cards as a child and as I got older, began reading books and studying with teachers and that's how it all began. 

 

What was it about the tarot that hooked you in?

I can't remember a time in my life where I wasn't fascinated with divination, astrology, the occult. I was a little baby witch, for sure! But the tarot was for me, the ultimate goal. To learn to read the cards was always a huge goal for me when I was young. I really struggled with trying to memorize the cards and what they mean - the way I teach, I take out the memorization and show people how to learn to see and interpret symbols and connect them to their own intuition. That's the real way to read cards and that's why no computer tarot program will ever equal a skilled reader. Computers don't have a connection to intuition. They can only spit out rote interpretations of the cards, which isn't a reading at all. 

 

What were some of the other first decks you used?

My first deck was that miniature Rider-Waite-Smith, my second deck was a full-sized Rider-Waite-Smith but my third deck was the Tarot of the Old Path, which is a fabulous deck with pagan imagery. It really opened up my eyes to other ways of understanding the symbols on the Rider-Waite-Smith. Comparing the imagery and symbols on more than one deck is a great exercise that can really deepen your understanding of the tarot.

 

Madam Pamita's Magical Tarot

What is your favourite tarot deck?

Well, my go-to deck is always the Rider-Waite-Smith. They are my old friends because the symbolism is so incredibly rich. It just continues to speak to me after more than 40 years of being around it. But, I do have other favorites - I love Ed Buryn's William Blake Tarot. William Blake is one of my spirit guides and this deck was gifted to me by a dear friend, so I have a beautiful connection to it. I also love any of the decks by Robert M. Place. I think he's a true genius and his decks are gorgeous. 

 

What are your thoughts on how predictive readings work?

I believe in free will, so if one believes in free will, there is no such thing as a "destiny." However, that being said, I believe that we can see strong streams of energy moving in a certain direction and opportunities that are available to someone. I like to show my clients the map of where their opportunities lie (and the pitfalls to avoid), but it's up to them to walk the path. 

 

What is your favourite card to see in a reading?

The Sun is one of my absolute favorites. It radiates the foundational feeling of pure joy and whether the querant's mind is on love, career, health or any other topic, it points to a good outcome. It's a card of carefree fun, positive recognition, everything being on the up and up. I think in my mind, I always want to be as open, joyful, and free as that naked little child enjoying a beautiful summer day!

 

What is your least favourite card to see in a reading?

It depends on the position in the layout. I mean, seeing a "negative" card in the past isn't a bad thing at all. It acknowledges that you've moved past that stuff, so it's sometimes a relief to see those kinds of cards in certain positions. But, if we're looking at "outcome" cards or cards that seem challenging on their own, one of the ones that I like to see least is the Devil. In my interpretation, the Devil can sometimes represent healthy rebellion or even fun rulebreaking, but more often than not, it represents power struggles. When it comes up in a reading, it often points to a struggle of some kind - maybe it's internal, maybe it's with another person, maybe it's with some institutional oppression. It doesn't necessarily mean suffering but it does mean you're going to have to pay attention, work through the struggle, and transform in some way. This transformation is often needed, but it requires some effort, that's for sure. It's the opposite of the carefree fun of the Sun.

 

What is your go to tarot spread?

I have a 7-card layout that I love to use and use often. It's one that I made up and I informally call it the Daisy Spread. I pull one central card and then pull six other cards and place them around the central card like the petals on a daisy. The central card gives me the big theme of the situation, the three above represent what's known and above board, the three below are what's happening behind the scenes. I look at the two on the left as what has been the foundation (known and unknown) and the two on the right as what is to come (known and unknown). The one at the bottom is the unknown thing that is "grounding" the situation and the one at the top is the highest outcome. The positions have multiple meanings and I love looking at the cards in multiple ways. 

 

As well as being a tarot reader, you are also a magical practitioner and work with hoodoo and rootwork practices. What drew you to that particular path?

Magic and divination have always gone hand-in-hand for me. I began studying magic when I was a girl, really not long after I got my first tarot deck. I think that I have always had a natural talent for both. I definitely have always been attracted to both. When we are looking at a situation through a reading, we may see some areas that need some spiritual support and magic is that spiritual support. Maybe we are asking a question about career and we want to see more doors open or for the promotion or job to come faster. Spiritual work can help move those energies forward. So, I just see magic, and hoodoo as a branch of that magic, as an extension of a reading, the natural action that should follow a reading. 

 

Do you have any advice for readers who want to start their own spiritual business?

First, get business cards made and second, carry your tarot deck with you and take every opportunity to do readings that you can and hand out those business cards. When I started to go public with my readings (after years of just reading for friends), I put myself in any situation I could to do readings for strangers. I read at friends' parties, I read at events, I set up shop in bookstores and restaurants (with the owners' blessing) - I just hustled, and as a result, I got to be a better reader and a better reader will gain loyal clients. Once that happens, everything else will fall into place. 

 

How can readers find out more about you and your work?

I have a store called Madame Pamita's Parlour of Wonders and people can find me online at parlourofwonders.com. From there, they can discover my services, the supplies that I sell, and also things like my YouTube channel and my podcast (look under "Instruction"). I also have a free ebook (and it's really a gorgeous one!) called "Seven Secrets to Supercharge Your Spellwork" and I give it away to anyone who signs up for my newsletter (which I send out about once a month). 

I would love to get to know your blog readers and for them to get to know me, so I want to give them a special discount of 25% off a Reading or a one-on-one Individual Instruction session - If they enter the promo code NEWAGEHIPSTER they can get 25% off a session (any length/kind). This offer is good for sessions booked anytime up to June 30, 2018. Yay!

Dark Moon Magic Tarot or Oracle Spread

Dark Moon Magic Tarot Spread

The dark moon is that potent powerful time just before the new moon pops in with it's slither of light.

Many people start working with the new moon when it's technically still the dark moon, but like I always say, go with what works for you and your own magic.

I personally like to honour the darkness before the light returns.

I use this time to go inward, to pop into the depths of my soul and see what's occurring before moving into the magic of manifesting and co-creation with my bezzie the new moon!

You can use this spread with tarot, oracle or whatever cards you have lying around. You can use it as part of your dark moon ritual or anytime that you are trying to navigate through the darkness.

 

1. Message from the subconscious

This card will help you tap into what it is that has not yet fully come to the surface but would like your attention at this time.



2. What lessons are integrating

The dark moon is a nice time to just let all you've learned over the last moon cycle sink in, here you'll get some info about what those lessons are.



3. How to find peace in the darkness

Sometimes the darkness can be a little challenging to navigate. This card will give you some insight into how you can find some peace and relax into this part of the moon cycle.



4. What the dark moon is incubating

It may look like not a lot is happening during the dark moon but there is always something happening under the surface.



5. Your guide through the dark moon

This card will show you who/what is guiding you through this moon phase and into the next.

Valentine Tarot Spread New Age Hipster

Ah Valentine's Day. It's a joy (sometimes!) when you've got someone, totally poop when you're feeling #foreveralone and it can be an absolute nightmare if you're somewhere in-between.

I created this spread to help y'all reconnect with that love in your heart, whether you are loved up, single, it's complicated or just focusing on doing you!

This is not necessarily gonna be about a person! Anything could come up here from your work crush, project you're feeling called to work on, friendships, family, your pets or your own darn self!


2. What feelings need to be felt?

V-Day is a great time to feel your feelings. If you can't have a big cry, vent and freak out on Valentine's Day, when can you? Go for it, purge that shizzle and see what comes up for healing and releasing.


3. Old loves to leave behind

You guys have seen that Valentine's Day episode of Friends right? Where the girls have an ex-boyfriend bonfire? This card is kinda like that.


4. How to love yourself better

Valentine's Day can bring up a lot, in particular it can show us where we're not loving ourselves enough.

Comfort + Support Tarot and/or Oracle Spread

Comfort + Support Tarot Spread

After a rough week of ups and downs (#ScorpioSeason) I've been feeling pretty raw. I wanted to check in with my deck, but the last thing I needed was a cosmic butt kicking. I was not in any state to look at my potential future, do any shadow work or be hit with any hard uncomfortable truths

And if you find yourself in that place sometimes, I feel you babe! It's totally OK to feel like that sometimes!

Working with the Tarot or Oracle cards doesn't always have to be about growth and learning and moving through your "stuff". Your deck can also be a tool for self care!

I Googled for ages trying to find a spread that would just offer me support + comfort with zero pressure. I couldn't find one, so I made one. :)

This spread can be used anytime you are feeling raw, low, anxious, stressed or depressed. Whenever you need a hug from your deck.

Depending on how hard you're finding things, you may want to also choose your deck carefully, or you can always pull out any cards you find a little triggering before you do your reading. Because, it's totally OK to do that if that's what you need to do.

 How you're gonna feel after you've done this spread... x

How you're gonna feel after you've done this spread... x

1. Roots - what grounds you

This card can help you see how to ground back into your body, into yourself, into where you are.


2. Support from your guides

If you have a specific guide, angel or passed over loved one you want to work with, you can go ahead and ask them for a message here, or just ask your guides in general.


3. Support from the Divine Masculine

Again, if you have a deity or energy you like to work with, you can call on them by name, or you can just ask for a message from the protective and strong Divine Masculine energy that's with you.


4. Support from the Divine Feminine

I would personally go for a message here from Mother Mary, as she's so good to call on when you're in this kind of energy, but you can call on anyone that feels right, or just ask for a general message from the loving and compassionate Divine Feminine energy.


5. Support from your higher self

Your Higher Self knows just what you need, check in with him/her here.


6. Action to take now

Depending on how you're feeling you can always skip these next two cards, sometimes we just aren't in a place to think about taking action. But this card can give you some insight into what you can do in this moment. It may be as simple as making tea, resting, calling a friend etc.


7. Action to take to help move you through

Here you'll get some insight into how to move through this current energy. Again, feel free to skip this card if you really can't even think about doing that just yet.


8. Continued Self-Care

And this final card holds a message for you on how you can care for yourself in the moment, but also make sure that you are continuing to look after yourself even once you've come out the other side.

Daredevil Tarot + Oracle Spread to connect you to your divine mission

Daredevil Tarot Spread to connect with your divine mission x

I've been on a bit of a Marvel binge lately, and I gotta admit, Daredevil is my current fave (sorry Danny Rand)!

I feel like there are many parallels between Matt Murdock's story and being a witchy woo woo lightworker on a divine mission.

Like, obvs, us lightworkers and shadow workers (or whatever you like to call yourself) don't usually go out at night beating up creeps (or at least, we probably shouldn't), but the basic gist of going undercover to help the world out is kinda in the same vein.

So grab your Tarot, oracle, New Age Hipster InstaOracle or whatever cards you have lying around and get ready to tune into your own mission!

 

CARD ONE: The faith that grounds you

A big part of Matt's dealio is that he's a Catholic. That means no killing, and drinking lots of whiskey.

What are the unshakeable beliefs that ground you into who you are?
 

CARD TWO: Your current mission

What is your divine mission of the moment? This card may show you the big picture or the details you need to know for the now.


CARD THREE: What challenges you

Matt Murdock is blind, which is a pretty big challenge, although it's also the thing that actually makes him Daredevil.

What is your challenge to overcome right now?
 

CARD FOUR: What your mask hides

Matt wears his mask so he can do work his mission in secret. Why are you wearing yours? What does it hide?


CARD FIVE: The truth of who you really are

Who are you really? When you take that mask off when you get home after a big night out working your mission, who are you?


CARD SIX: How to fulfil your mission

Matt gets confused sometimes about how best to help. Is it through the law? Or smacking people with sticks? It's super confusing sometimes. This card will help you to see the best way to fulfil your mission.

 

Tag me in your pics on Instagram if you share your reading so I can come say hi! :D

With love, light and fulfilling divine missions,

Clueless Tarot + or Oracle Spread

Clueless Tarot Spread New Age Hipster x

The other day I had big plans to sit down and watch Twilight with a massive bowl of popcorn slathered in butter but Netflix had taken it down! Why??

So I hit the teen movies section and watched Clueless for like, the 50th time or something. OMG it never loses it's edge. In fact, it's  a movie that may even be getting better with age. It did make me pretty nostalgic for the 90's though. 

So grab your deck of cards (any cards you have will work!) and your favourite plaid outfit and let's get clued up!

 

1. What are you being totally clueless about right now?

We all have the ability to be a little bit Cher-like. Where are you being clueless in your life?


2. What are you cluing into?

What are you starting to get? What are you learning? What's finally making sense?


3. Where are you ignoring your intuition and guidance?

We all ignore our own guidance sometimes, what are you ignoring right now?


4. What's right in front of you that you're not seeing?

This is like when Cher realises she likes Josh. What is the Josh to your Cher? 

 

If you wanna share your spread on Instagram please tag me in the photo or story so I can find you! :D

And if you're still feeling a little clueless or just want some help working through some stuff, check out my shop for all my readings + offerings.
