So why, then, is Tarot a powerful tool that engenders sacred and special moments—whether through a reading, contemplation, brainstorming, writing, painting or other endeavor?
It’s because of you. And me. And Spirit. Which, really, is just another name for the unifying All That Is.
If the vast store of cosmic symbols, archetypes and messages are available to you (and, arguably, already within you), then you are the special, sacred and holy one…not the cards.
After all, Tarot isn’t processed, embellished, deconstructed, synthesized and interpreted in a vacuum, right? No, there must be a witness, an observer, an ambassador…someone willing, and able, to tap in, decode and transmit the messages of Tarot.
Get the picture?
You are the hallowed component of the Tarot, as are all the wise ones who have grabbed the sacred symbols out of the Great Collective, packaged them into an accessible (albeit, mysterious) pack of cards and then actively sought to do something with them.
