Why do I love Tarot?
Because Tarot is about stories. It’s about creating a life where you walk with wanderers, magicians, and kings. Where you see the big, powerful themes of your life, and the small but poignant scenes that make up who you are. Where you’re able to review your life’s story and see how you want it to be told.
Because it’s about possibilities. Because I can take a look at seven cards laid out in a pattern and see myself reflected back at me – parts of me I’d never considered before, and options I’d never imagined. Because when we’re bogged down by too many choices, or by a sense of being overwhelmed and lost, we’re able to illuminate our path and see one direction where it might lead.
Because Tarot is art. It’s taking 78 ideas, 78 moments from life, and seeing the myriad ways those images have evolved and changed from person to person, theme to theme, artist to artist. It’s seeing the unique lens through which each deck views our lives, and then learning about yourself through which images speak to you.
Because the world needs magick. Because we’re magick, and the sheer power and beauty of peering into the unknown and calling up what we find there is something we’re never too old for.
