Advice To Think Twice

Tarot – what it is and how we use it

Tarot is a beautiful and complex divination tool. It can give you insight into a situation, guidance on how to proceed and potential outcomes should you follow a certain path.

Between the Major and Minor Arcana cards your entire life is covered, from fated events and destiny energies to the day-to-day aspects of life. The 4 suits do a wonderful job of covering all sectors of life: Wands looking at your career, work and creative endeavours, Air looking at your thoughts, reasoning and overall mindset, Water looking at the depths of your emotional life, hopes, wishes and feelings and Pentacles looking at the practical aspects, finances and overall wellbeing.

You can look into any situation with the tarot cards, all you need to know is what question you need answered or what aspect of your life you need direction for. There are about a million and one spreads you can use like the classic Celtic Cross and Diamond spreads, Past-Present-Future etc. but the Tarot also gives you the freedom to create your own spread, focusing specifically on your question and the aspects you need to cover.

Another beautiful thing about the Tarot is that it is not set in stone, meaning it does not take your free will out of the equation. If for example you receive a rather negative potential outcome it is still good news because fore-warned is fore-armed and you can change that outcome just as soon as you become aware of it. You can change an outcome by simply changing your attitude towards it, it doesn’t need a big move in order to be changed. If for example the cards are telling you that you are most likely not going to be successful in an endeavour, then the good news is that you now know not to waste your time, you learn from the reading (about your weaknesses and strengths for example) and the next endeavour you set your eyes on will be a huge win for you. This is because you have already learned and grown as a result of that reading in spite of the negative potential outcome it heralded.

In the same line of contemplating the beauty of the Tarot, it also gives you the freedom to use your own intuition to understand the cards and link them together to get the bigger message. You have the traditional meanings of the cards, yes, but you can do so much more with them. Therefore, the Tarot allows you to learn (standard ways of interpreting the cards) while at the same time giving you the opportunity to grow on a spiritual level, connecting with your inner wisdom and developing your intuition. And I believe that any growth on the spiritual level will reflect on all levels of someone’s life (material, emotional and mental).

This is just a short personal outlook on the Tarot and the freedom and world of opportunities it can bring us. Once you get a “big picture” view of a situation, you can turn it into anything you wish, once you understand it, it frees you from fears (because you now know what’s coming or why the situation is occurring in your life) and it gives you direction for the future.

I have gained a lot of wisdom from my work with the Tarot cards over many years and I continue to learn and grow more and more every day.

I invite you to share your thoughts on this and your experience with Tarot.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you find this post useful.

Until the next time,

    I think you are right. I am very new to tarot, ever since I have heard ur voice and first time I ever went on tarot, I found your channel. I believe listening to you and your guidance has helped me out alot on making new decision for myself and my children. The only thing I’m not sure on is if I’m using the tarot right. I’m not sure if I’m relaying the messages to use for my higher good. But overall hearing some of them, have helped me in tremendous ways.

      Hi Denishia and thank you for your comment!
      Please don’t worry about using the Tarot right 🙂 You need to connect with your deck and you do this by working with it daily, ask a question, see that cards that show up and then pay attention to the energies that manifest. This way you will make sense of how the cards are speaking to you specifically and you will know what to look for in the future.
      You build up your trust in the cards and your self-confidence when it comes to reading by using your deck, studying about the cards, their meanings, the story of the Tarot etc. but also your own intuition and what it is trying to tell you.
      So take your time, do your research and work with the cards. Your confidence will increase as you learn.
      Thank you again for your support, I do appreciate your kind words and I am very happy my readings are helping you.

    I just wanted to say thank you for bringing your tarot readings I to my lufe. I listen to several tarot readers,and slowly but surely have unsubscibed to all but a few and I must say that your readings rank amongst the top three of Youtube. You have a very gentle style and I must say that I was very annoyed at those individuals who criticized you for saying “o.k.” and was concerned that you focusing on not saying it would interfere with your thought process. You are extre ely accurate and i look forward to your daily advice. Most Sincerely – Gaile
