Tarot is a system of divination using a deck of cards. Today, as the Tarot continues to evolve, it has become a tool to help us make choices, gain clarity, and support spiritual growth. The Tarot gives us meaning and affirms what we already know but needs to come into our consciousness. The systems that underlie the Tarot can be simplified and organized to make the cards an accessible tool.
The origins of the Tarot are unclear. Some believe the Tarot dates back as far as ancient Egypt and relates to the “Tree of Life” (the qubalah). Tarot might have originally been a Book of Wisdom or a pictorial way for gypsies who spoke different languages to communicate. Many believe the first deck was a game made as a wedding gift for the marriage of the Visconti and Sforza families in Renaissance Italy. Why or how they work is an exciting mystery even to seasoned readers.
Talking about Polarity Wellness Tarot
“I have been reading Tarot cards for over twenty-five years. Since I found them so effective in making decisions, I began to include Tarot in my bodywork sessions. The brief readings help affirm my clients’ experiences, differentiating and integrating their thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations.
I realized there was a more expansive and expressive way to use the Tarot. This inspired me to create a unique and comprehensive deck. The images are digital collages. I found inspiration for the images included in the Polarity Wellness Tarot everywhere: in nature, in sculpture, in yard sales and junk shops.”
