When I say ‘Anybody can become a Tarot Card reader’, you probably wouldn’t believe me, would you? Well that’s because people have glamorize Tarot to be an art hardly anyone can master, which I completely don’t believe in. I believe Tarot is by far the simplest forms of divination, because it only works on energies.
Unlike Astrology and other divination forms, you don’t have to master all the planets and what they say and what they mean. All you have to master is yourself, and that’s what Tarot teaches you. To get in tuned with your higher self in order to know where your deepest desires lie and how to manifest them. Let me give you a simple exercise. Look at this card below. What do you feel it may mean? What does it tell you? Try to analyze what’s happening in the card here. There’s a man holding a staff in his right hand, and a rose in the other, hopefully looking above the sky, as if he has nothing to worry about, he just goes walking where destiny leads him. This man looks carefree, as though he is ready to face anything that comes his way, full of dreams and aspirations, he goes on to follow his path, maybe mumbling a malodorous tune. That’s why he’s called ‘The Fool’.
Now, do you know anyone like this in your surroundings, perhaps you? How much do you resonate with The Fool? Does he remind you of your desires, dreams, and hopes?
The reason for this experiment was to make you understand how every card brings out a reflection of you or someone you know. This is the first card of the deck, and every card after this leads to the other in such a way that the deck is incomplete without even one card. Some people say that the whole Tarot Deck is the Fool’s Journey, i.e Your Journey. How he meets other former cards, learns values like leadership, creativity, control, love, power from them and applies it to his life.
The Tarot helps you dig in deeper to your psyche, your mind, and your soul and bring out the best in you and others seeking help, and the cards are so easy to read because you will always find a personality as shown in the cards, in your life as well!
So, are you ready to break the Tarot-learning stereotype and transform your life through Tarot?
