Tarot Table Talk Podcast Episode Number 5: A Tarot Ritual for Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead Marigold

Episode 5 of the Tarot Table Talk podcast is in MP3 format, 14.3 MB, and approximately 10 minutes in length.

In this episode, I share a bit about the Mexican tradition, Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos, which is celebrated on November 2nd. I also suggest a simple tarot ritual to honor the spirit and memory of a loved one.

Day of the Dead Tarot Ritual
(This can be done anytime you wish to honor someone’s memory.)

Go through your deck, face up, and pull four to eight cards that remind you of a loved one who has died.

The cards you choose might reflect your loved one’s personality and/or talents, a struggle they endured, the gifts they left behind, your memories, etc.

Once you have chosen your cards, place them in a circle, face down, and light a candle at the center. Then turn each card over, one at a time. After turning a card over, allow yourself sufficient time to reflect before turning over the next.

If you would like to embellish the ritual by adding the traditional elements of a Day of the Dead altar, you might include

  • a photo of your loved one.
  • an offering of flowers, the fragrance of which will lead the way to your altar. Marigolds are the traditional flower, representing death, but you might, instead, choose to go with the favorite flower of the one whom you are honoring.
  • copal incense, another strong fragrance to help lead the way.
  • candles to light the way.
  • your loved one’s favorite foods and beverages.
  • any special objects that you know they would enjoy. For example, for an artist, you might include tubes of paint and brushes.
  • sugar skulls or playful images of skeletons as a non-threatening reminder that we all must die, that death is a part of life.
  • Day of the Dead Altar

    An altar I once did for family members who have died.
