“Self-care" is a buzzword that’s been trending on social media for a while now, and it can mean everything from indulging in luxuries like steamy bubble baths, lush face masks and polished manicures to taking care of your mental health. The question is, where can we put tarot cards?
What is tarot, exactly? Tarot is a popular divination practice centred around a deck of cards. The deck is often composed of Major and Minor Arcana. Major Arcana are cards that represent situations, advice and lessons that have long-term impacts on your life. Minor Arcana indicate personality archetypes and day-to-day situations relating to emotions, careers, struggles and inspiration. The general idea behind tarot is that some sort of magical, spiritual entity or energy leads you to draw the specific cards you’re meant to see in order to predict your future, reveal a hidden truth, or otherwise guide you.
But are they really magical? Do they really channel some sort of spirit guide?
The truth is, we’ll never know. And really, it doesn’t matter. Tarot can be a fun party game or a tool for self-reflection. Learning the meaning of each and every card and spread allows you to connect the dots between the meanings of these cards in order to come up with the main message of the spread.
Of course, another person might look at these three cards and interpret their message very differently (tarot reading is very subjective!), but that’s perfectly ok. Your tarot reading applies to you, and you alone.
