How Tarot Cards are relevant to you?
With its ancient symbols of Emperors and Queens, Swords and Knights, the tarot deck may appear like an outdated relic from the yesteryear. Unfortunately, this is quite far from the truth. The examples and titles of each card may often come from a different epoch in human history, but they quite easily apply to present-day life. While the cards were projected with the situations of the time when the universe was new, they resonate today with timeless symbols that can be applied to our busy modern world. From giving away intimate details about the future of your love life to painting the big photo of where your career is working in a high-tech universe, a tarot reading illustrates the cityscape of your life.
One must count at each image in the tarot deck as an original. A castle painted in antiqued meant the same thing to the king and queen that your household or apartment means to you. Children appear in the tarot deck and contemporary psychology spends much of its resources discussing the internal child we all privilege or punish. Hundreds of tarot readings prepared the world for Freud's theories and together these define our contemporary awareness.
More or less of the deck's most ancient illustrations can, using their illustrated subjects, be understood as archetypes for more or less of the most contemporary situations. Understand the analysis below to pick up if your modern life was painted correctly by the ancient universe.
While The Hermit card depicts a human clothed in robes alone on a mountaintop and sees with the tending of an ancient lantern light, imagine surfing the internet for knowledge, the lone glowing screen of information lighting up your darkened way. He might even be wearing a bathrobe.
It is easy to read the coins in tarot as metaphors for money, but look a little deeper. The star engraved on each coiN is what prepares it a pentacle and is in reality indicative of money falling through our hands as energy to aid personal growth. The five pointed star illustrated on pentacle cards is actually a continuous cable with no time outs, no beginning and no end, like a dollar circulating from consumer to retailer to producer and back to the consumer.
In an epoch when the police carry guns, blades are a quaint notion of maintaining a medieval fort. But the archetype of the sword goes far beyond its military role. Words that move around a critique into an argument are called reducing. A partner saying something that hurts is said to possess a piercing tongue. In that location might be more cases in contemporary life for a metaphorical sword to hurt us than there was when the tarot deck was first illustrated.
On a royal thrown surrounded by ancient symbols, The Empress hardly seems like a girlfriend you would add to your Facebook or MySpace friends list. And yet there she is, on a throne in the middle of a field, a forest far behind, holding a bejweled staff, wearing a diamond-encrusted tiara and draped in some outlandish fashion. Her purse has the symbol for Venus, reminding everIn that this Shopaholic princess enjoys being a young woman. Isn't every mall in America overrun with aspiring Empresses each weekend?
The Emperor on a throne might serve a fairy tale well, but how does the modern world of elected leaders in business suits reflect the tarot's indicator of certain and forceful masculine energy? Anyone who has ever had an overbearing boss who barked ultimatums from his office chair might swear they caught a dense crown and long gray beard in between the shouts for more coffee coming from tail end that desk.
In a world where extreme horror movies outpace any ancient notion of a terrifying demonic force, The Devil card in tarot reveals some subtleties that reflect contemporary horrors. In the card, a man and a woman are both chained to the feet of the Devil's throne. This is a metaphor for addiction. The Devil card appears in contemporary readings that reveal someone in your life chained to a drug or alcohol problem And possibly chaining you to their disease through codependency.
The Knight Of Wands
A human being in armor riding on horseback holding a tree branch is not exactly someone you pick up along your way to class or the office every weekday. The ancient symbol of creative inspiration is something, though, that will come in handy for current times should it appear in your version. Wands are seen as metaphors for resourcefulness and entrepreneurial life. The ancients crafted useful tools out of fallen tree branches, walking staffs to assist arduous journeys. The metaphor for using a creative thought to become a success is as modern an idea as a fast internet link. Knights were the medieval message bearers, defenders of territory and seekers of glory on behalf of their realm. If your boss believes in tarot, let him or her know when you have pulled the Knight of Wands card — your aspirations about where to go could lead the society to big successes.
The Hanged Man
Far from a card depicting a lynching, The Hanged Man card shows a man hanging upside down, tied to a tree by his ankles. On closer scrutiny, the tree appears to have been made from quality, not grown from the earth. And with his work force behind him, we cannot differentiate if the human race is bound or simply covering his work force. A halo surrounds him, making further contemplation at least consider that he is in a self-induced predicament. The Hanged Man card represents those life situations or so which we complain that we cast ourselves in from the start, often almost willingly. If any card of the deck describes modern life the best, this one might get the trophy.
No card in the tarot is devoid of import for contemporary life. It is up to your tarot reader to use the ancient archetypes and symbols to your current world and specific places.
