Ten of Shields – A Music and Tarot Discussion


One of the best ways to learn something is through making a personal connection to it. Being that Tarot speaks to so many facets of life, lyrics lend themselves well to the cards. Music has power and we make connections to it on a regular basis. In a way, it’s magic because it can transport us back to moment frozen in time as the music and lyrics pluck memories from our minds.

Can’t Buy Me Love – The Beatles

You know, it is sometimes really difficult to choose songs. I mean everyone writes songs that express and explore pain and suffering. Even in my search for songs today, all the songs I came across had to do with being poor. While that may be the reverse aspect, I really wanted to choose a song that reflected the upright meaning of this song. I settled on Can’t Buy Me Love because they talk about buying whatever you want because, really, money doesn’t mean anything. Love is the true wealth. The lyrics of this song speak to that.

Side Note: I really wanted to pick a song from one of the albums in the photo but I’ve already used Pink Floyd’s Money and the other bands don’t really seem to give a fuck about money! LOL.

What song would you choose? I’d love to hear!

Say you don’t need no diamond rings
And I’ll be satisfied
Tell me that you want the kind of things
That money just can’t buy
I don’t care too much for money
Money can’t buy me love

The Beatles
