I had thought about writing a post using specific Tarot cards as gratitude talismans.

That is, using certain Tarot cards--especially ones that some would associate with gratitude or abundance--for the conscious cultivation of thankfulness.

The more I thought of it, the more I realized that every single one of the 78 cards of Tarot can be used to inspire gratitude, draw out thankfulness or cultivate mindful appreciation.

Here are my contributions. What affirmations can you come up with for each card? What does each Tarot card inspire you to be thankful for?
