Tarot can give us tremendous insight, clarity and affirmation of what we already know.
Polarity Therapy is a holistic integrative healing art that balances life energy in the body. It addresses 4 components: bodywork, exercise, nutrition, and communication skills.
Both Polarity and Tarot are processes that provide meaning and direction to one’s life. When fused by astrological and chakra references, together they bring about a profoundly deep healing – both physical and even emotional.
Polarity Therapy is based on the 5 universal elements, as is Tarot. The connection to the first 4 are fairly obvious, Air – Swords, Fire- Wands, Water – Cups, Earth – Pentacles. The 5th, Ether – Major Arcana, I’ve taken poetic license with. When I laid out the chart below, I was blown away by even more connections. All 2,3 & 4s astrologically were cardinal signs, all 5,6 & 7s were fixed, and all 8,9 & 10s were mutable, perfectly aligned with Polarity’s suggested type of touch.
Cards chosen may tell us where to contact the body, what type of touch to use and a suggested practice to balance and integrate the lessons of the Tarot. Incorporate whatever practice from a particular card(s) that you are drawn to into your daily mindful practice. Major Arcana cards have meditative practices. Minor Arcana cards have yoga-like exercises and Court cards have art practices.
