Using the power of Synchronicity, Tarot taps both the subconscious and the superconscious Mind, the center of our psychic abilities. Anyone can become a good tarot reader. But a gifted reader of Tarot is far more than someone exercising innate psychic abilities. An appreciation of the power of the archetypes;i.e. the process of consciousness or heroes journey contained in the images.
The Tarot works with your energy. When you shuffle Tarot cards, your energy is being channeled into the cards so that when you select the cards for your reading, you’re being drawn to the cards that are most relevant for you. Each Tarot reading is unique to you in that moment and time, because it’s tapping into your energy.
A Tarot spread can give you a very keen sense of the probabilities inherent in a situation, but the specific way that things turn out are, in the final analysis, up to you -- how well you adapt to the ever-changing conditions that your Tarot reading reflects. A Tarot reading gives a snapshot of what is going on in the Present, the time you are picking the cards. It can help you see aspects of a situation that have been invisible to your ego. In contrast to popular opinion, Tarot is a valuable form of meditation on the Present moment that returns insight and advice. Although it does reflect probabilities, it is NOT a form of fortune-telling.
Consult the Tarot as if you were asking the advice of a wise friend or teacher.
