The Many Faces Of Tarot

Sean BeanI am a story teller not a fortune teller. Not that there’s anything wrong with that (as Seinfeld would say.) It’s just there’s so much more to Tarot cards.

Personally, I believe they’re a relic from the prehistoric era. This epoch’s contribution to the formation of Western Civilisation has been vastly underestimated IMHO. Before we wrote down our wisdom in words we drew it in pictures. They were our holy books. Our teachers. Our counsellors. But when the written word took over this aspect of pictography was forgotten. Only the fortune telling element remained. As a stain. A slur on the achievements of our ancestors. Which has stopped the vast majority (but not the curious few) from exploring Tarot cards in depth.

There are so faces to Tarot. Let me share some with you…

You can tell stories with them

Get advice

Use them as a lateral thinking tool

Or counseling prompt

Read Tarot as a holy book containing profound lessons about life

And yes, if you want to, tell fortunes. However, I encourage peeps to do this for themselves and cut out the middle wo/man. It’s better to develop your own intuition than rely on others. Ultimately, no one can know you as well as you can know yourself. Even fortune tellers have their biases. Or we take their word as written in stone, when it’s not. Circumstances change. The world is constantly in flux. It’s water not rock that lies behind veil of the High Priestess.
