Every Tarot card that comes your way, will mirror exactly that which applies to your unique life-journey , as you of all people holds the inner understanding on what your life’s mission is all about.

Do you sometimes wonder how a Tarot card seems to reflect exactly that which applies to what  evolves in your life story?  The answer to this secret is perhaps less mysterious as you might think.  A little courage and honesty towards yourself opens gateways to self reflection that give you total freedom of choice.

 Sample the exploration of your life journey here:  

Did you know that 56 out of the total of 78 cards of the Game of Tarot, are based on the ordinary card game, and that this ‘Minor Arcana’ or  ‘Lesser Arcana’ as it is called, adapted Spades, Clubs, Hearts and Diamonds; using their Number- and Court-cards to give a deeper meaning to daily life experiences?

Starting with a simple playing card has the potential to give you insight in the meaning  behind common or more challenging daily life experiences.

The number one rule when interpreting a card! 
When using ordinary cards – or any oracle for that matter- it is of the utmost importance to refrain from (self) judgment or pre-conceived convictions on who you think you are and allow your True Self be The Storyteller. You are the conductor, musician and instrument of your life-journey. The interpretation you give to what takes place, determines the outcome.

Here’s how to mirror your inner knowing through an ordinary playing card.

0. The Storyteller

  • Use a separate piece of paper or start a journal assigned to card interpretations, and note down when, where and optionally why you draw a card. When reflecting on a card later on, remembering the spot on earth where you were when you consulted a card, will help refresh your memory of the experience.
  • Shuffle a deck of ordinary cards, draw one and record its Colour (Spades, Clubs, Hearts, Diamonds), Number (1-10)and/or Court characteristics
  • Observe the triggers the card holds for you. What is reflected by the combination of Colour and Number or Court card. What does your  inner knowing have to say about it?
  • Add your findings to your paper or journal.
