How Tarot Works
How does Tarot work? That's a really good question to which I don't know the answer. But, I do have a hypothesis or two.
The Four Options Spread
There are never really any cut and dried solutions to any given situation. There are always other options to consider. This quick and easy spread shows you four potential pathways that could be followed.
The Aces in Tarot
The Aces in Tarot are somewhat similar to the Aces in a regular playing card deck. They can represent the highest or the lowest depending on any given situation. It is the cards around them that are the determining factor.
The Ten of Swords
Feeling completely powerless and out of control in a difficult situation is one of the worst feelings a human can experience. I like to see the Ten of Swords as a Tarot based representation of the AA twelve step program. The first step is to admit that you are powerless.
The Nine of Swords
We all have nightmares that shake our emotions to their roots. And sometimes, those nightmares carry on into the "real" world. Dreams are messengers and they let us know what we should be working on in our lives. When we don't listen.. we have a nightmare.
The Eight of Swords
Being boxed in is one of the worst feelings in the world. There are situations in life in which you feel like you are the total victim. And, as the victim, you feel powerless to change what is holding you tightly bound and blindfolded. This is the message portrayed in the Eight of Swords.
The Seven of Swords
Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. How many times have you told that one little white lie and then found yourself caught in a web of deceit? It takes a lot of energy to keep trying to sort out the truths from the untruths. It's almost a relief when you get caught.
The Six of Swords
The past can sometimes keep you from living in the present. It is difficult to go forward when you are dragging along old negative thought forms, beliefs, and baggage that are no longer conducive to your spiritual growth. The Six of Swords speaks to letting go of this rigid adherence to the past.
The Five of Swords
Have you ever been in a situation in which your ego takes complete control? When you are at the top of the ladder you may think you are invincible. However, sometimes when your ego takes over you may inflict emotional wounds on those around you. That is when the fall from the top can be painful.
The Four of Swords
In times of confusion and despair it always helps to get away by yourself. Being in a place that soothes your spirit and allows your mind and body to relax is sometimes the very best medicine. The Four of Swords tells us to rest, relax and listen to the inner voice of our spirit.
