As with most forms of divination, the Tarot can be a very powerful and useful tool to help someone reflect upon their emotions and thoughts, as well as providing illumination and understanding. What is important to understand, is that Tarot does not provide ‘absolute’ statements or predictions. Many people visit a Tarot reader naively expecting a precise and comprehensive disclosure of their future .Once a person has accepted that this cannot be done, they can begin to appreciate the true gift of Tarot.
Tarot cards reflect the questioner’s current ‘energetic state’, their thoughts, feelings, emotions, projections that are busy creating their experience of life with past influences and projections of possibilities for the future. A good tarot reading should help you to gain a little more clarity and understanding of your thoughts and emotions about certain issues in your life. Most of us never make the time to stop and reflect or meditate, to quiet the noise and babble of our conscious minds. In the stillness of silence and with a focused mind, we can begin to form a clearer mental picture and feel deeper emotions which help us perceive our life from different perspectives.
