Tarot Revealed
by Terri Gary

For whereas the mind works in possibilities, the intuitions work in actualities, and what you intuitively desire, that is possible to you.
Whereas what you mentally or "consciously" desire is nine times out of ten impossible; hitch your wagon to a star, or you will just stay where you are.
~D. H. Lawrence

Many philosophers have proposed that the passage of time is an illusion suggesting that only the present is real. Is time a river of memories filled with energy from our thoughts? Recent evidence indicates that the past, present, and future are accessible, moving parallel to one another and remaining in the realm of reality. In theory, time travel is a real possibility. Intuitives and psychics who have fine-tuned a sixth sense are able to access the future, past, and present. It is believed that some intuitives are so accurate that they might be compared to technology such as sonar or radar. These technologies (sonar and radar) provide a source of energy (electromagnetic and acoustic, respectively) to "illuminate" the terrain through energy returned from the terrain that is detected by a system and recorded as imagery. Intuition is really not so far-fetched when presented in scientific terms.

Tarot reading is a tool for looking into time. Much like a radio, you can tune into a station or vibration and see or feel the energy of your action and thoughts. Tarot is an ancient system which uses universal archetypes to tell the story of the individual soul. It was originally an esoteric religious system which created an enlightened path for a mystic or scholar. Today, the images on tarot do not reflect modern actions or people, but we can still connect to the universal consciousness and the feeling of the symbology used. These energies create your reality. If you do not see what you want, change your thoughts, actions, and you can change your life. Manifest your dreams or circumvent your heartache, you have the power to make an enlightened choice.

The Four Suits of Tarot reflect the four directions, the elements, types of energies, and the seasons. Pentacles-- refer to our money, commerce, decisions around business and the spring. Cups-- emotions, love, family, relationships and the summer. Wands-- the energy of fall and indicates opportunities, business, moving forward, making progress, or the lack thereof. The final suit, Swords-- reveals endings, loss, illness, leaving something behind, or the winter. 

In the 1800s a personalized Tarot deck was designed or commissioned for each family. These cards were consulted almost daily for many family occasions, such as births, deaths, health issues, and community events. The same suits are found on common playing cards, which were the original favorites of travelling gypsies and fortune tellers.

The Minor Arcana cards represent people, situations and events in your life. The Major Arcana which consists of 22 cards depicts the actual life journey. The four suits also correspond to the many systems of four which have been devised by people over the course of history: the four directions or winds (north, south, east, west); the four elements (fire, water, air, earth); the four seasons (winter, spring, summer and fall); the four worlds of the kabala (Divine, Creative, Formative and Manifest); the four Jungian archetypal functions of the mind (thinking, feeling, sensation and intuition).  

A quick guide to the major Tarot suits-

Pentacles - Spring - blooming garden - rebirth
Cups - Summer - growth of water lilies – prosperity
Wands - Autumn - the leaves  'falling' off the branch – renewal
Swords- Winter - stark gray skies - perseverance

There is a system in place and the tarot serves as an energy guide for the intuitive however most gifted intuitives do not need cards. The cards are often a starting point and create energy between the two spirits. Tarot is not an exact art. Manifesting what you desire and believing the best will come to you is the true essence of your being. We deserve all the good in the world, each and every one of us and there is enough prosperity, joy, happiness, and good health for all humanity. Believe it into being and remember to be positive and live the life you deserve.
