I’ve written before about how Tarot contains a holy book that charts the journey of a human soul through all the stages and experiences of life. I call these cards Life Lessons Tarot. But they’re better known as the Major Arcana.
These lessons are divided into three parts. We’ve already looked at the first two parts this year: Childhood & Adulthood. The third volume represents maturity.
This is the scary part. These cards will shake, rattle and roll your world. The last seven cards of Tarot’s Holy Book are the most intense to live through. But if you can manage these energies in a positive way you get to hit the jackpot. You get The World!
I’ve talked about mental illness before. But in my opinion, as someone who’s had extensive experience in this area, you can never talk about it enough. There are lots of peeps suffering out there with one form or another of this insidious disease.

Unsurprisingly the cards involved include those in the last section of Life Lessons Tarot (aka the Major Arcana). Note: These cards might turn up reversed in a reading about mental illness.
The Devil: Living in denial. An inability to face reality. Losing yourself in drugs. Denial that you have a mental illness. Continue reading →
I haven’t posted much about The Sun and it’s a wonderful Tarot card. Just look at the image. A smiling free-spirited child rides a horse while a powerful sun shines in the sky. In the background sunflowers grow from the top of a grey wall. The sun is the source of life. The child naked. This card symbolizes feeling reborn, revitalized, more alive than before.
I don’t know about you but I feel better when it’s sunny. It’s easier to forget your cares when soaking up some summer rays. I’ve just returned from a short holiday in the sunshine state of Australia: Queensland. Spending five days walking on the sand, soaking up the sun and leaving my life behind definitely made me feel reinvigorated.
Does a holiday in the sun have that effect on you?
