Tarot – the very word sparks fascination and, for some of us, an irrational wariness. Maybe this is because it’s symbols spring from the realms of dreams, from forgotten history, and from myths and legends buried deep in our culture. Our new, special tarot section aims to bring you a fresh, modern look at this centuries-old system of divination, meditation, and guidance.
We’ll also be exploring other divination systems from time to time. Playing cards, for instance, link up directly with the tarot deck’s suits (Cups, Wands, Swords and Pentacles) and on their own they, too, form an interesting, helpful way of seeing what the inner and outer patterns in your life are doing. Symbols and patterns – these are the fundamental key to tarot, astrology, and all other divinatory systems, such as the I Ching. All of them were designed to show us the prevailing conditions of both ourselves, and the times we live in. It’s not just about what will happen, it’s about how we react to events, moods, gifts and challenges. And how we can best respond, develop our own gifts, and find meaning and fulfilment.
We hope you’ll enjoy it.
