Hello lovely readers,
We are transitioning. Can you feel it? The energy of 2022 is slowly but surely making its way toward us and all of us, on some level, are beginning to feel this new energy.
This has been a transformative year and with these transformations, many of us have turned to rituals and tools to help us as we navigate the uncertain waters that we are swimming in.
Some of us have discovered the benefits of crystals and how they help to ground and guide us. Others have realized the awesome power of oracle decks. Some have discovered their psychic abilities are being activated and are exploring methods to master them.
For many, Tarot cards have been brought to attention – and this is what this article will focus on. How you can use Tarot cards in a simple and easy way that is effective for you throughout the day.
Why You Shouldn’t Feel Intimidated by the Tarot
The Tarot is an ancient and mysterious form of divination which puzzles and mystifies many. Even skilled Tarot readers do not always know exactly how this form of divination works. They only know that it does indeed work.
How can a pack of cards tell us so much about the unknown? is a common question.
The truth is, no one really knows! This is where trust and intuition come into it. Believing in the Tarot is as much an essential part of using Tarot, as it is to know the meaning of each card in the deck. Yes, knowing the meanings is important, but when it comes to Tarot, there is no ‘right or wrong’ way.
It is about what you feel is right. Different Tarot decks have various imagery on their cards. While the imagery can differ, often the meaning stays the same.
What matters when reading the cards is what you as the reader feel is right. If there is a meaning associated with the cards, but you feel it means something else when you look at the image, don’t ignore your feelings.
Yes, the meaning will relate to the card in some way. But let’s say you have learned the definitions of a card to a tee, yet when you pull it, something else pops into your mind.
This is your intuition talking!
Very often, your first impression is the right one. Second-guessing can lead to feeling intimidated by the Tarot as you begin to question yourself about whether you are right or wrong.
Just keep remembering that when it comes to Tarot – and all forms of divination, really – there is no right and wrong, and therefore, there is no reason to feel intimidated by the cards! Breathe deeply, try not to overthink and connect to your deeper wisdom with the help of lunar rituals such as this one here. Relax, go with the flow, and trust yourself. 😊
Using the Tarot as a Daily Guide
One of the best ways to get to know the Tarot cards is to use them as a daily guide.
This involves pulling one card from the deck when you wake up and using it as a guide and inspiration as you go through your day.
This is especially helpful for those who are:
- Struggling with anxiety
- Worried about a decision they have to make
- Uncertain about the way life is going
- In need to guidance with an issue in their life
- Simply want to improve their spiritual journey
Pulling a daily Tarot card enables you to have something to assist you in your waking life. It isn’t there to judge you, to tell you what to do or to complicate things for you. It is simply a guide and assistant. A bit like Santa’s little helper!
We all need a little help every down and then. The journey through life can be lonely, challenging and difficult.
Tarot isn’t there as the solution to all our problems. It is, first and foremost, a guide to help us live the best life we can and to become the best version of ourselves.
So why not pull a daily Tarot card each day to help you along the way? It is important to regularly remind yourself of your own innate power. As hopeless and difficult as things can be, there is a power that exists within you and it calls to you each day, even if you struggle to hear it.
Tarot helps you hear the voice of this power. Its goal is always to help you see the truth so that you can connect with your Higher Self. Sometimes, we may look outside of ourselves to find joy and satisfaction. Either in the money we make or the relationships we have. But fulfilment can be found from within, if we are willing to dig deep enough inside ourselves to find it.
This is where a daily Tarot card can help us!
How to Pull a Daily Tarot Card
First, prepare your space. Ensure you are in a quiet area where you won’t be disturbed. Have your chosen Tarot deck ready. (Some relaxing meditation music can be very helpful during the beginning process!)
Shuffle the cards and think of the following question in your head:
What advice do you have for me today?
When it feels right, lay the cards down and either pick a card from the deck “at random” or cut the cards and pull the first card from the top of the pile.
The card you pull is the advice card for you that day.
Bear in mind, when an advice card appears, it is not always so simple as, “This is what you have to do today!”
Let’s say you pull the Strength card. This could easily mean, “Today will require you to be strong so it is best to prepare yourself.” Or it could relate to someone in your life who is having to be strong and needs a helping hand. It could relate to an area of your life where you are experiencing weakness and you are being encouraged to draw forth greater strength to deal with it.
It could even mean you’ll be challenged during a work-out!
Cards can have a variety of meanings, but essentially the core meaning of the card stays the same. This is where your intuition comes in handy.
It is also a good idea to keep a Tarot journal for your daily card. Spare ten minutes each morning to go through your daily Tarot card ritual and write down which card you get. Then, at the end of the day when you are able to relax and write in your journal again, write about what happened that day. This will help you recognize the link between the card you pulled and the events of the day.
Not only is it exciting each day to see what Tarot card you get, but it also helps to build your intuition and balance you on a more spiritual level as you become familiar with the cards.
We are entering an age where the Tarot and other forms of esoteric divination are making a comeback. The benefits that come with the Tarot, which is a guide of extraordinary ability, can help us on so many levels as we move through the waves of life.
In these challenging times, seeking guidance and assistance is commonplace and more and more people are turning to Tarot to help guide them through the day.
Remember, you don’t need any special powers or abilities to use the Tarot. You just need to trust in yourself and trust in the cards. Belief is such a large part of it.
