I describe Tarot as a do-it-yourself-know-thyself-kit. Forget fortune telling with the cards. As fun as that can be when fate looks golden, it can be a real ball-and-chain dragging you down when the cards are dark. Instead, I recommend using Tarot to get to know yourself better. To find out, as the Spice Girls sang, ‘What you want, what you really really want.’ To acknowledge your strengths and work on your weaknesses. To become who you are deep inside.
Life Lesson Tarot (aka the Major Arcana) spells out this journey in detail. And you know you’ve finally been successful at becoming a realer version of yourself when you pull this card out of the pack…
The Sun: Know Thyself. Be Thyself.
Of course this is easier said than done. The pressure to do what others want is enormous. Whether that be faking an orgasm, faking you’re happy (when you’re definitely not) or faking that you enjoy your job.
Do you fake anything for your family, friends or boss?
