Tarot cards are a form of divination which assists in allowing a sneak peek into a potential future. A common misconception is that the future is set in stone, and when the cards fall – that is your fate. It may be a bit unorthodox to the orthodox tarot reader, but it is my understanding that the future is always malleable, nothing is set in stone. What can be, will be, but only will become because of the thoughts your consciousness is projecting. There may be certain aspects of the future that are beyond our control, but what we can control is ourselves, and controlling our thoughts can (and will) create a better reality.

In the 21+ years that I have been reading tarot/oracle cards, I have come to discover that there really is nothing magical, mystical or fantastical about the cards in themselves…however the intention of knowing, allows the universe to “work through you” (in a sense) to show you what you may be soon attracting because of your thinking patterns. The cards are not necessarily a tool to tell your fortune, rather a tool for self exploration.

The major arcana, in particular, are 22 cards that tell a story about learning the way of the world through experience. The first card, The Fool, is representative of the quest for knowledge. The Fool departs with nothing more than his questions as his baggage, and the questions are the first step to the answer. The end result is that The Fool understands The World, and all that works through it along the journey are mirrors to the soul’s reflection. Each card represents an archetype of the facet of personality that envelops the human experience. We each have many dimensions to what makes us human, and each dimension is uncovered through a new experience. Good, bad, indifferent, nothing ever is permanent, and nothing ever is truly good or bad…all are lessons, and experience is the master teacher that allows us to find our truth.

Know yourself, and you will know the world. Know the world, and you will know yourself. This is the valuable lesson that major arcana alchemically encodes in the cards. Alchemically in the sense that when you first read yourself, you may be starting from a “base metal” type of understanding, but through your experience the “base metal” may turn into “gold” and for every reading, the story may be perceived with new vision.

"This, then, is the ultimate paradox of thought: to want to discover something that thought itself cannot think."- Soren Kierkegaard

  • #Aries #newmoon today! 🔥🔥🔥 "This energy is all about action, confidence, and (metaphorically) kicking ass. Do not be afraid to dream big, because Aries will not let you think small. Stop shirking, and feeling as though you aren’t good enough, you are neither inadequate, and you’ve never been small…you are enough, you are worthy, and you deserve to live your desires, always. Let the flames of Aries’ fire purify thoughts of worthlessness, as you step into your worth and claim your true value on every level of your life." - @jennifersodini 🔥🔥🔥 Learn more: evolveandascend.com
