How can tarot help us? Life may boil down to a series of random, unconnected choices. We face them all the time and on the whole, deal with them quite well. Should I go to bed early? Should I eat better? Should I stop binge-watching Bake Off on Netflix? Easy choices to make right?
The Fool – If you see The Fool, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve been a silly person. The Fool can symbolise a New Beginning. Usually depicted in colourful garb with his little napsack, The Fool is ready to set off on his journey. The Fool can be a welcome card to see if you’re stuck in a bit of a rut and want a break from your routine. Perhaps, it will guide your inner wisdom and help you decide what it is you need to do or where you need to go to start your next chapter.
The Lovers – Is it hot in here? Do you feel your blood rising? Is online dating about to pay off? Is the love of your life about to break down your door in a fit of passionate lust? Maybe. The Lovers do symbolise love but, they can also mean connection, attraction, and harmony. It’s a welcome sight in a Tarot reading if you’ve made a decision that you’re second-guessing. Imagine how relieving it would be to know that the universe is telling you it’s okay that you’ve quit your job to pursue your passion.
The Hanged Man – Oh dear. This can’t be good, can it? Not necessarily. The Hanged Man can symbolise trial, meditation or selflessness. If you see him reversed, it can be a message to stop sweeping something that’s bothering you under the carpet. Stop binge-watching TV instead of taking care of yourself. Stop avoiding having a difficult conversation with a friend or loved one. Not so bad advice after all!
