Demystifying the tarot: what is it, really?


for a lot of people, their idea of tarot is sitting in a dark room, with a sketchy person telling you the name of the person you're going to marry.

we don't do that here.

instead, tarot is rapidly growing worldwide as a tool for mental health.

the goal is to develop regular self awareness; to create a sacred space where we can face the parts of ourselves that we keep hidden from the world.

no mystical fluff, no fortune-telling and no spirits involved (except maybe the vodka kind).

but... what is it, really?

tarot is a story of being human, told in 78 cards. The cards depict normal human experiences such as fear, desire, anxiety, joy, passion, belonging and so on.

pulling a card is an invitation to reflect on those feelings in ourselves - how they come up, how we deal with them, and whether they help us on our journey or hold us back. once we do this, we become aware of what's no longer serving us, and we can begin the process of letting go in a safe, non-judgmental space.

my thoughts on predicting the future

there are people who believe that tarot can be used to make decisions for you, and that it can tell you what's going to happen in the future.

i respect those beliefs, and i 100% disagree.

i strongly oppose giving your own power and autonomy away to cards - little pieces of paper with pictures on them.

to me, the magic comes from my own self-reflection; seeing what my intuition is able to reveal to me about myself. having that space where i can turn my attention inwards and get guidance from my highest and wisest self is priceless. and that, dear reader, is what tarot is all about. šŸŒ™
