166 – Scary Minor Arcana Cards with Meg Jones Wall
There are a few Major Arcana cards that tend to spook people, namely Death, Devil, and The Tower. Pull one of those bad boys in a tarot reading, and folks freak out – and fear the worst. Those Majors aren’t the only “frightening” tarot cards in the deck. In fact, there are a few scary Minor Arcana cards that trip people up and stress them out. Cards such as the Ten of Swords, or Five of Cups. In this episode of Tarot Bytes, I’m joined by Meg Jones Wall of 3am Tarot for an enlightening conversation on how to deal when the Minors you don’t like show up to your tarot party.
Meg shares her technique that combines Numerology and Majors to find the wisdom and healing potential in tarot’s least happy Minors. You’ll start looking at those unpleasant cards with fresh eyes – and they won’t seem so scary anymore!
Meg Jones Wall // @3am.tarot (she/her) is a queer tarot reader, photographer, and writer based in NYC. She found tarot in the summer of 2016, after leaving her family’s conservative church and craving some personal, spiritual rituals of her own. What started as a private daily practice has evolved into an Instagram account with over 11,000 followers, a Patreon and website, a tarotscopes column at Autostraddle, and multiple tarot e-books.
For Meg, the cards serve as a bridge between intuition and action, allowing readers to find empowerment, strength, and wisdom in every reading. She is currently working on her first book.
