Decode Your Celebrity Obsessions With Tarot

I was standing in line at the grocery store yesterday, reading Star magazine (my trusted news source) when an idea for a really fun Tarot exercise came to me.

Do you ever wonder why you are fascinated by particular celebrities or fictional characters? I do. And I figured there had to be some deep, twisted psychological explanation for it. So I decided to consult my Tarot cards to get the juicy deets…

Step One:
Ask yourself what celebrity/fictional character do I find most fascinating? (or, which celebrity do I have a crush on?). Then, go through your Tarot deck and pick out 1-3 cards that best represents this person. These are the qualities that you are powerfully drawn to, whether you realize it or not.

If you don’t care about celebrities or fictional characters and have no idea who anyone is, then you can substitute a real person in your life – preferably someone you feel drawn to and find extremely intriguing. Like the long-eyelashed mailboy at your office, or the neighbor’s wife. Or your spouse, I guess.

Whoever it is, ask yourself who they would be in the Tarot. Are they the bright eyed and bushy tailed young man in The Fool? The stuffy, constipated Emperor? The spazzy juggler in Two of Pentacles? Or perhaps a combination of the three?

Step Two:
Ask yourself what that Tarot card means to you right now.

  • What significance does it have in your life?
    • Does this Tarot card embody the traits you wish you had?
      • Or the things you are missing in your life?
        • How do you express the energy of this card in your life right now?
        • If you have chosen more than one card, look for repeating symbols and similarities

When I did this Tarot experiment, I picked James Bond as my fascinating fictional character (the Daniel Craig version). I am intrigued by the way he coldly kills people, rides motorbikes on rooftops, heartlessly kills people, jumps out of moving trains and kills people, all without giving it a second thought. So sexy!

The three Tarot cards that, for me, represent James Bond are The Moon, Five of Wands and Eight of Cups. The Moon because he is so mysterious, Five of Wands because he always seems to be in a tussle with someone, and the Eight of Cups because he is always scampering off into the night after bedding some foxy lady.

Without boring you to tears with the details of my personal life, I will say that these three cards accurately reflect what’s going on for me right now.

The Five of Wands represents an inner struggle of conflicting interests (I want to do this… no, I want to do that), Eight of Cups reveals that I am indeed turning my back on something and The Moon illustrates my desire to keep my life very private and my feelings hidden.

In the comments below, tell me what celebrity (or person) you chose and what cards you picked to represent them and why….can’t wait to hear!!!!

    All-righty, Kate. I’m taking a well-deserved break from work and doing this RIGHT NOW!

    So, my Pie-in-the-Sky Guy is Bono. I’ve got such a thing for him!
    Okay, so now I have my Boho Cats, 1st Ed., in hand and am seeing Bono as …

    1) Ace of Swords, since he’s a communicator and truth-speaker
    2) Two of Wands, as I believe he has his choice of how to make his mark
    3) The Hierophant, as I perceive him as interested in representing moral guidelines
    4) The Chariot, because he has always harnessed his will productively
    5) The Devil (reversed) because I believe he has a great interest in helping others to free themselves from oppression

    What similarities do these cards contain? Hmm. Well, they are, for the most part (except the Ace), about a mature expression of will in the world–about taking personal power and responsibility for the place we inhabit, as far as our work and avocations go.

    And, now that I think of it, that is what I am lacking, a bit more conviction that I have the right to inhabit my current position and make decisions for myself about it. I could definitely benefit from some of Bono’s confidence, which is evident in each of the cards I picked to reflect him.

    What a GREAT game, Kate. Thanks so much!

      Thanks for sharing this, Jamie – I am thrilled you had fun with this one! I enjoyed reading your observations and insights here.

    The celebrities I have a crush on would be Johnny Depp and Gary Oldman. They are both very sexy and mysterious bad boys.. The tarot cards I can Identify with would be:
    1) The Fool (Johnny Depp) He just seems to embody this essence in his Pirate films.
    2) The Devil ( Gary/Johnny) They are both very sexual and desirable men. Would tempt the most serious girl.
    3) The Moon (Johnny/Gary) As they both deal in the realm of fantasy and acting.
    Now I will have to search in depth as to what these cards mean to me on a deeper level. 🙂

    • Kate says:

      I love it! Those are great cards to represent Johnny Depp. I am not as familiar with Gary Oldman – I can picture him, but I can’t remember what movies he’s been in, although I know hes been in lots of things. Thanks for your comment! 🙂

    • Jamie Morris says:

      So GENIUS to put them both together as The Moon, Raisa!

  3. Mary says:

    I like Daniel Craig; not because he kills people, but he’s the smart, elegant Bond that defends M like his own mother, which is an issue for me. And my names starts with M, so I imagine myself being his boss (sometimes, not that old obviously! But she’s smart and a great strategist too, which I like in her).
    Incidentally, Kate, I’m a bit worried that you mentioned ‘killing’ people not just once, but three times. Having read Debbie Ford’s books on shadow work, is there something inside that you’d prefer dead? Perhaps you prefer to eliminate it Bond-style? Not to pry in any way, by any means, but pls take care if there’s something like that inside, because it consumes a lot of energy if it stays there. Lots of blessings xxxx

    • Kate says:

      That is an interesting point, Mary, about the “killing people” thing – I think I was just being silly here, that isn’t actually what attracts me to Bond – I think it is more his elegance, which you mentioned as well. But I love Debbie’s book The Shadow Effect! I don’t think there is anything inside me that I want dead, but I will think on it as its an interesting question. Thanks Mary 🙂

    Juicy, indeed… 🙂
    My question is: which James Bond? I suppose, it’s Sean Connery…(represented as the King of Wands in the Cosmic Tarot) 😉

    Sorry, I cannot tell you about personal experiences on the issue since I couldn’t care less about celebrities…
    Have fun and a good day! 🙂

    • Kate says:

      The Daniel Craig bond! Sean Connery seems too old for me.

    • Jamie Morris says:

      Hey, EG–

      Is there anyone that you do admire that you could play this with? An author? Speaker? Humanitarian? Your best friend or a mentor?

      I always enjoy your responses to Kate’s posts and would enjoy seeing what you came up with for this!


      • EG says:

        Hey Jamie,

        You will be disappointed this time…
        I cannot mention anyone…maybe Oscar Wilde. Of course, I admire some people, but I don’t think I could play this with any of them…
        By the way, I meant Sean Connery, when he was young, like in the JB movies…he was so handsome, and a real man.
        I don’t like Daniel Craig, either. 😉

        • Jamie Morris says:


          I think Oscar Wilde deserves his own whole tarot deck!

          And, sure, SC was good-looking when he was younger. No argument there. But DC? Very awesome, I think.

          See you around the blog.

          • Kate says:

            I have to admit I haven’t even seen the Bonds with Connery, but whenever I think of Sean Connery I think of Darrell Hammond’s impression of him on Saturday Night Live.
