In my previous post, I shared a bit about the history of the Tarot and briefly introduced you to the cards. Today, let me tell you how the Tarot works – and doesn’t work.
There’s a lot of mystery surrounding the Tarot, which isn’t surprising given its portrayal in the movies. Picture this:
A young girl goes to a fortune teller, who pulls out the Death cards and says something like: “Oh, Death! Someone you love is going to die today!” *Cue dramatic music in the background.*
I say: Bullshit!
For one, Death very rarely means the literal death of someone – so breathe! For another, the Tarot does not tell you exactly what will happen, or exactly when it will happen, and a reading isn’t set in stone. Hello, free will!
The Tarot provides you with a road map
It is based on your current circumstances, on your current thought process and actions. It’s excellent at telling you what may be blocking you or holding you back. At indicating the broad themes that are playing out in your life. It does indicate an outcome as well, but it is always based on the present. It can always be changed depending on your actions, on the work that you do to actively bring about a change in yourself.
The Tarot is not set in stone
People often mistakenly believe that the Tarot will tell you your future. But it doesn’t…not really. The best way I know how to explain it is using this quote from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho:
“When people consult me, it’s not that I’m reading the future; I am guessing at the future… How do I guess at the future? Based on the omens of the present. The secret is here in the present. If you pay attention to the present, you can improve upon it. And if you improve on the present, what comes later will also be better.”
It’s always about the present. It’s about the energies surrounding a particular problem that may be perplexing you. The Tarot can give you juicy guidance on your blocks and on how you can resolve those blocks; it can give you a deeper look at the situation and tell you what you can do – NOW – to improve things.
The future is always unknown. The Tarot makes it easier to navigate through the currents of life. Click To Tweet
