Tarot Lessons: Redefining what you thought you knew about Tarot

Tarot Lessons: Redefining what you thought you knew about Tarot

The Tarot is fundamentally a revelation of the science of life for the art of living. It's an archetypal pattern language--a universal tool for communication and personal prediction that simultaneously contains and reveals both the profound secret Code and the simple access Keys to the unfolding process and natural orders of life and love. 

Against the full spectrum of inseparable Self-Portraits embedded in its Gallery of Human Truth, the Tarot holds up a mirrored perspective of the synchronicity between yourself, your relationships, and the living environment. 

Each Tarot card portrays a dynamic self-contained sphere within spheres to reveal and recycle the interwoven, Spiro-graphic symmetries which embody and connect our common human experiences relative to the greater whole--endlessly revolving, evolving and reflecting our multi-faceted selves as if against some magnificent cosmic holographic Disco Ball.

These self-perpetuating patterns, rites of passage, and self-generating structures of harmony and form revealed within the Tarot are beautiful, unconditional neutrals of reciprocity--icons, links, and networks we use to recognize milestones, highlight opportunity, and reinforce our relative position along the way. 

They guide us intuitively and paradoxically by degree through the intimate portals of our exquisite human suffering and are born of the sacrifices we choose and endure in order to know and be known by our true nature -- sustained and intensified against the bittersweet anticipation of joyful liberation in release and mirrored by our desire to belong, become, and be loved.

To this end, Tarot works behind the scenes to continually braid together the various collapsible and expandable interconnected pathways we travel throughout our life quests -- leaving clues and echoes in the most unlikely places like some multi-dimensional breadcrumb trail left by a Mobius pretzel.

But without a true beginning or end, it takes a Tarot reading to put a pushpin into this dynamic context map and provide a hypothetical or allegorical point of departure. From this perspective you can explore your current course, make your way home, or overcome fears and be guided through an alternate route to some distant destination.

Along the way you can also sort out your Super Hero from your Nemesis to project a more authentic Self. And because discovery of such "zest in quest" is transformative, finding your groove is not only an inspiration to others, but lets you radiate a greater degree of independence, natural beauty, and trust in yourself and your relationships. This validation assures more sustainable resolve about how to support or perpetuate the life and love you want for the future -- encouraging you to have a little more fun with it as you go. So if you've come here looking for something or someone to believe in, start by taking a look in a mirror.

"An unexamined life is not worth living." -- Socrates
