Just what exactly are they and what do they represent? Tarot reviews the querent’s journey through life, a story being told. Using a seventy eight card deck divided into sections, the first main division is in two parts: the Major Arcana (twenty-two cards) is connected with the element of spirit and the Minor Arcana (fifty-six cards) have an elemental association. Arcana means “secrets”—so the Major Arcana are the “big secrets.” In practical terms, these are the cards that represent important milestones, major changes, events beyond our control, and spiritual growth. The Minor Arcana, “lesser secrets,” generally depict events, situations, or people related to everyday life. An important characteristic of the Minor Arcana is personal control—that is, they represent aspects of your life over which you have the control.
Each of the cards has a divinatory meaning concerned with the currents, energies, and events surrounding yourself, your life, and your choices. The art work symbolizes the lessons of various elements which are full of many meanings. Tarot is a very personal and spiritual development. The cards have lessons to teach about self-development, self-improvement, and the healing of the mind and spirit.
The future is not set in stone; everything is not predetermined, and you have free will. This is how using the tarot works as a tool; when certain events are set in motion there is a likely outcome. Tarot can tell you what will probably happen if all things remain as they are and give you a clear picture of all the elements involved and how they affect one another. Tarot can also help you determine your best course of action in those events over which you have control.
I use the tarot as spiritual tool, serving as connection between you and the divine. I visualize my own personal interpretation of the message behind each card to bridge between your subconscious and conscious; it can help clarify your thoughts and feelings regarding a situation. It can provide guidance in times of turmoil or give you information about a situation to help you find answers or make a better decision; this is where your free will comes in.
In my readings I am being guided by higher vibrations by connecting with my guide psychically with intuition being my final word. I also do psychic medium readings when spirit comes forward and wishes to connect to bring forward a message that is especially for you.
