Tarot utilizes not just elements but also seasons.
How many of us have heard of Tarot? How many of us don’t have any idea of what it is and may even feel like it’s bad? It’s not! I mean it, it’s really not. It is a helpful guidance tool that allows you to get answers (whether vague or crystal clear) about an issue or question. Tarot corresponds with Astrology and embodies their characteristics as well aiding in solving your question. It also uses numerology because the deck has four suits that are numbered from two to ten. Did you also know that Tarot utilizes not just elements but also seasons? Understanding the history and breakdown of the cards can also help for all those aspiring Astrologist.
Let me break down a few basic things to get you started on your journey learning or using Tarot. So there are four suits. You have Pentacles or Disks that represent the Earth element. If you are familiar with Zodiac signs this suit will also reflect the characteristics of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. The same goes for the elements related to the other suits. Wands correspond with Fire and thus hold characteristics of Leo, Sagittarius and Aries. Swords goes with the Air element as well as Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. Last but not least, Cups are all water! It’s designated to Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio. So a bit more detail. When Pentacles show up in a reading it is about physical things, property, tangible items, what you value/treasure both emotionally and spiritually, stability, steady pace and reliability. Think about the pros and cons of your earth zodiac sign friends. You will find them in the cards as well.
Seeing both sides of a situation and being too much in your... ~ Persia Red
Wands deal with inspiration, spirituality, quick movements, cleansing, aggression, passion, intense energy, determination and motivation.Unlike Earth, Fire moves quickly and sporadically. But just like the Sun, Fire brings enlightenment as well. Swords are all about the mind! It focuses thoughts, intellect and ideas. Communication is very big with others and yourself. Seeing both sides of a situation and being too much in your head can be themes seen when this suit comes up. Cups are all about emotional affairs, issues and triumphs. Water is a conduit for electricity which would make sense because Water deals with intuition, knowing that something is happening or something is popping off. You just FEEL it. This is what cups encompass. Reminding you of balances and imbalances of your emotional state or someone else's. Reflection is also a big correspondent. Knowing this information goes a long way.You can ask what should your focus be on and see what suit comes out. Those characteristics are what you need to focus on.
Now you have an idea of if you should focus on your health and stability, further enlightenment and stop procrastinating, what is swimming around in your head and are you listening to yourself and what emotional state are you in. You can learn so much about yourself and others with Tarot. It is definitely something that can assist you in your life journey BUT remember it’s not for everyone and that’s OK. More for me and you!
