How Tarot Works
Tarot cards originated in the mid 15th century as an Italian card game known as Tarocchi. Although not initially used for divination, the cards used universal symbols and imagery to appeal to the players, and their archetypal characters and narrative of the human journey were often inspiration for stories and creative games in the Italian court.
By 1750, the occult had become popular with the European nobility. It is here that we have the first definitive records of the tarot being used for divination purposes. Ever since, tarot cards have become synonymous with the occult and divination in much of the western world.
Some believe the cards can tell the future, but most believe that while the cards themselves aren’t “magical” they work because they speak to us on a subconscious level about our problems and worries. For those of us who believe in synchronicity, there is meaning in the cards we choose or that choose us, and we are wise to look at the message being sent by the universe to help us reflect on our current situations. This is how I use the tarot.
Is Tarot Right for You?
Let’s be real…all of us want to know the future. Does he/she love me? Will my job interview go well? Is my mom going to recover from cancer? Although tarot can give us insight into a situation, it is not really useful for predicting the future. The reason for this is because our lives are made up of many different actions every day; change an action and you change what the outcome would have been. The tarot works by showing us possible paths, behaviors, and patterns, and by brining up aspects of a situation or person that we might otherwise ignore. It works by using the reader and their intuition, to help the person being read for make a wiser choice, become attune to harmful patterns or behaviors, and introduce courses of action they may consider.
You may benefit from a tarot reading if you:
- Are ready to get the tough, but truthful answer
- Are up for self-reflection
- Are ready to do the work that comes with self-reflection
- Are open to different perspectives or possibilities than the one you had in mind
You should probably steer clear of tarot if you:
- Already have a fixed answer in your head/heart
- Only want a reinforcement of the answer you want
- Do not want to do any self-reflection
- Don’t want the truth about a situation
