Singing With Tarot: I Have Confidence

I've only just begun studying the Tarot. There is so much to learn it can feel daunting sometimes. I haven't learned all the traditional meanings yet...so I have decided to do random exercises that will help me get to know the cards better. In "Singing with Tarot" I plan to choose a song and relate it to specific cards.

In honor of The Sound Of Music: 50th Anniversary edition being released today, I have chosen the song "I have confidence."  It is also quite suiting as I need to gain more confidence in myself and my tarot study.  I should sing this song to myself more often!  You can listen to it here.  

On to the cards!

Eight of Cups

"When the Lord closes a door, somewhere he opens a window," says Maria before the song begins.The beginning of this song is like the Eight of Cups.  Maria didn't fit in at the Abbey and is reluctantly leaving it behind. It is time to embark on a new journey.  The path ahead is unknown and she is hesitant to move forward but she knows it is the right direction to take. She has to move on.  

Page of Wands

As the song continues it starts to channel the confidence of the Page of Wands. Maria starts opening up to the adventure.  It's time to be enthusiastic about this new opportunity and embrace it.  She will tackle any challenges that come along and prove her worth. The song becomes more optimistic and full of energy.


I couldn't help but include The Strength card, as the song is all about inner strength and overcoming your fears.  It is about determination and the ability to endure difficult times.  Maria is building confidence and courage as she sings.  She is beginning to believe in herself and steps into her personal power.

  1. What a lovely trip down memory lane. My great aunt took me 7 times to the cinema to watch this movie. There were no video's back then. :)
    I like the cards you've picked for this song. Great choice

  2. Thank you! I am still so new to Tarot I was hesitant to even post this. ha ha ha. But singing the song to myself helped. Plus it was good practice to get to know some of the cards.

    Trips down memory lane are the best!
