Life changing choices and using the Tarot for guidance
The Tarot is a great tool for clearing our paths of the obstacles that stand between us and happiness. The cards can be used to help us understand how we fit in with situations that are happening around us and, ultimately, be the key to learning about our own strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes, however, we have huge and life-changing decisions to make. Is the Tarot appropriate for choices of this magnitude?
Which Path is Best for You?
The answer is yes, but the key to making a successful decision lies in as much as how you approach the cards as the cards themselves. When we have an important decision to make, we often spend a long time thinking about it, before commiting to making the decision itself. This can be a good thing. If you are able to approach the Tarot cards with an honest appraisal of your role in the situation, the cards will grant you an insight into the self-created obstacles you have put in your own path. In addition, it will also highlight the reserves and skills you have at your disposal to choose the path that is best for you.
The Decision is Yours
You should remember that the Tarot cannot tell you whether or not you should make a decision. It is not a method for fortune telling. However, through interpretations, the cards can reveal to you which paths you are equipped to take and whether you are fearful of them or not. In addition, it will reveal the personal frailties that are preventing you from taking a certain course of action. However, the ultimate decision will rest squarely on your shoulders; the Tarot is not a way to shirk your responsibilities, it is a way of fully understanding and embracing them.
In questioning the Tarot, try and be as specific as possible and give your interpreter as much information as you can about your situation. An interpreter is not there to tailor the information to suit your sensibilities. They are there to discern meaning and relevance from the cards drawn. The Tarot can help you make life-changing decisions, but only if you fully explore your role in them.
