Handwriting & a difficult Tarot Reading #2

Tower, Death card, 4 of Swords 3 card Tarot reading

Handwriting and a difficult Tarot reading is the topic for this post. Say you are doing a reading for yourself and you get the above cards.

You say “Oh dear! (or something like that!) I have the Tower card, Death and the Four of Swords! What an awful reading. I guess my question of “How will my new job go?” has been answered thoroughly. But I accepted it and I need the money. What can I do?”

I won’t give you my reading of these cards. That is for you to give yourself. But any reading will show that this is not the ideal combination for a new job or anything else.

Handwriting to the rescue

Looking at your handwriting will not change what is the cards say is going to happen. But in Tarot what shows is what will happen if you continue in this same direction. Your handwriting can help you change directions.

First of all, your handwriting will show you what strengths you have that will help you through this and any difficulties. And it will show you what you have that you can consciously depend upon to take you to calmer waters. Just knowing you have certainly qualities and strengths helps you focus on them, use them, and guide yourself in a more positive direction. So help is at hand when you combine Handwriting and a difficult Tarot reading

This is your hypothetical writing that I am working with for this reading:

Handwriting and Tarot 1

How this writing example relates: 

You are showing that you are feeling a little down at the moment – and you wrote this before the cards were drawn. So there is something in your life right now that is weighing on you.  It may be your uncertainty about your new job, or it could be anything else in your life too. Are you aware of what it is?

Intuition and Positive Thinking

This writing shows strong positive thinking and being aware that that is something you have can help you re-frame any negative thoughts about this reading and your new job into something more positive. You also have very well developed intuition. If you pay deliberate attention to your gut feelings and follow what they tell you, you will be on the right track to make the best of this situation. Again, just having your attention drawn to the fact that you have this is powerful since it heightens awareness.

You are very open to new ideas, analytical and pay good attention to detail, so as things develop you can be welcoming to positive changes, analyzing effectively how to respond, not missing out anything crucial in your plans. And if the changes appear to not be positive, these same traits can help you work out the best way through the problems. You have the ability to handle change and solve problems well.

Watch what you say

You have a tendency to be very direct in your thinking, which is always good. But you are also very direct in your speech so it might be an idea to consciously curtail that somewhat in your new job until you get to know the people and how things are done there. Also you enjoy time and working alone.

If your job includes other people, this would be a time to make an effort to be friendly and sociable to the extent that seems to fit with this work environment so people get to know you and accept you. New people who do not talk to others much are often considered elitist even if that is not at all what is in their mind, so make the effort to join in until you are a natural component of their workplace.

A Little Retreat is OK

The four of swords is the retreat card so at some point you may feel a strong need just to take time out from this, but when it is possible, do work at making friends. If bad things happen that are outside your control, you will respond with calm although you will not necessarily feel calm inside. But keeping your cool in any difficult situation is always a positive.

Major changes that are coming your way will be met with analysis, intuition and a cultural sensitivity if that is required. However, you can do so very much more than you think you can, so do not limit yourself to less than you can do. You have the ability to handle almost any situation and come out a winner. So believe in yourself. Believe that you can handle whatever is coming your way.


So that is how handwriting can expand upon and increase the value of a Tarot reading. Each does its own thing. Neither impinges upon the other. When you use Handwriting and a difficult Tarot reading, each enhances, explains and enlarges the information of the other.

How Graphology and Tarot work and why you should add Handwriting to your Tarot Readings

How Graphology works and why you should add it to your Tarot Readings

Here is how Graphology and Tarot work and why you should add Handwriting to your Tarot Readings

Tarot readers look at the pictures and the symbols on the cards and gauge what that tells them in response to their querent’s question. Some Tarot readers do this completely intuitively. Some Tarot readers stick pretty much to the ‘traditional’ meanings of the cards. Most do both.

How Handwriting & Tarot work

Handwriting works in much the same way. When learning Graphology for the first time, you generally learn what various strokes mean and each time you see these strokes you know that that specific personality trait is present.

Just as when you see a certain Tarot card you know certain things in answer to your querent’s question, for example when the Death card shows up you know it means endings and beginnings and when the Judgement card appears you know that Karma is in action.

In handwriting when you see a long sweeping t-bar you know that the writer tends to be enthusiastic and when you see i-dots missed you know the writer probably doesn’t pay too much attention to details.

That in either modality is just the beginning. Once you see all the cards or all the writing, you start to look at the influence each has upon each other, and your intuition kicks in. It may of course have kicked in earlier, upon seeing the very first card or upon seeing the writing for the first time, but as you see more, your intuition tells you more.

The Symbols of Handwriting

This is how Graphology and Tarot work: the symbols in handwriting work the same way as with Tarot. They just look different. In handwriting in one way the symbols are the letters we use to form words. But for the purposes of Graphology, the symbols are the strokes within the letters, not necessarily the entire letter itself.

No two people write exactly the same. They may have been taught in the same school at the same time by the same teacher, but as they grow up and both they and their writing mature, they will adapt their writing to what feels comfortable for them. This is when the personality takes over.

Handwriting is Body Language

Handwriting is body language and just as no two people walk exactly the same way, or talk or do any movement exactly the same, also no two people write exactly the same.

It is brain writing, since it is not the hand but the brain that decides how to create each letter, and is governed by the subconscious mind for the most part.

And the subconscious directs the hand to write with movements compatible with the personality of the writer, just as the subconscious directs every other movement that person makes to be in keeping with their personality.

Can you tell the people you know best by their movements even when they are too far away to see clearly? Can you recognize the footsteps of close family members? Do you recognize the way they move their hands, tilt their head, the expression on their face?

These are all body movements that are so uniquely tied to the personality that we can recognize them instantly in people we know really well. Handwriting is exactly the same.

So by looking at the combination of strokes, or symbols in the writing the observer can accurately arrive at a personality description unique to that writer. The fact that people are writing less nowadays is not really an issue. If someone can put pen to paper and create words, no matter how they write, their writing can be analyzed.

Combining Tarot and Handwriting: how Graphology and Tarot work

Once you know a few handwriting personality traits, you can add that to your Tarot readings and make the reading both more valuable and totally individual.

Just like Tarot, when it’s brand new to you, it takes a bit of time, but once you get comfortable with it, as you have done with Tarot, you will find it is quick and easy to just look at the writing and see what is there that will relate well to what the Tarot is saying.

It’s a value-add to your Tarot readings … and it’s fun. Your querents will love it.
