Illumination is protection — but the Tarot isn’t going to shield you from every painful surprise. What the Tarot does is to point out your bullshit as well as your wondrous qualities, what to strive for, how to move forward in your gifts. It kind of irritates me when people say that I use Tarot for “divination” as if life can be figured out to the nth degree. There is plenty of mystery that the Tarot will not reveal because we need to learn the lesson for our soul’s evolution. There is an infinite amount of possiblities and paths, which means that the “future” can never be pinned down to one or two outcomes. Thank the Goddess for that.
My clients (and myself) strive so hard to be good people, to find their spiritual purpose and get frustrated because they feel stuck. Often that stuck feeling is facing the mystery of life. We are NOT meant to know everything. We are perfectly human, veiled in our limited understanding while inhabiting these bodies. We won’t always see the path or understand why that person broke our heart. We won’t know the next soulmate until she reveals herself. The key is to trust your soul’s wisdom — call her High Priestess, Higher Self, inner knowing, woo sense, wise woman — who guides us when things are not yet clear. That being is much, much more savvy than our Type A, wounded, eager, curious child trying nail things down in her attempts to feel safe.
Sometimes we’re the lion, sometimes the woman, exploring this magical mystery ride of life.
