How The Tarot Can Help You Read The Book of Life
Category: Tarot Cards
There’s nothing more super natural than the supernatural, the word says it all!
The dictionary definition of the word “weird” means “connected to fate,” so I smile and say thanks when someone calls me weird. The dictionary also gives more credence to our imagination than we do, hailing it as the bridge between the subconscious and conscious.
Isn’t it time we came back to Earth and stopped being woo woo, about the woo?
The only woo that exists is the person feeling all woo! Take the book of life (aka Tarot), one of the most ancient arts there is. The archetypes painted upon the cards are the gods, goddesses, planets and stars pictured for us to gaze upon as mirrors.
In them, we see our place in the universe. They are little post-it reminders of our soul’s path, an infinite reflection on the possibilities in and around us. Yet we test, fear and judge it. Judgment takes us out of the heart and into fear — the exact opposite of love. But Tarot is love from the universe in pictures.
We just need to understand it. With understanding, confusion, pain and fear no longer exist. We wake up; see clearly and discover our true free will. This is the gift the Tarot offers, IF we understand how to connect with it.
When we truly connect with the Tarot understanding of life skyrockets.
As does the synchronicity and magic we experience, the Tarot mirrors back to us the predictable patterns we get stuck in. If it has the power to reveal our patterning then it has the ability to make us aware of our patterning, and not only that – but we can ask how to change it!
Yet we don’t tend to approach it with questions that empower us, such as:
What do I need to be aware of?
What do I need to heal?
What’s the purpose of…?
What do I need to learn?
Most of the time the questions are:
Will he come back?
What are they thinking?
When will ___ happen?
None of those questions are internally based.
When the focus is on the external, nothing really changes — we just go round in our patterning.
Asking the Tarot fear-loaded questions breeds disempowerment and obsessive anxieties. This applies whether the Tarot is mirroring the fear, or the desire. Either way it creates attachment, imbalance, dis-harmony and disempowerment, a very slippery slope indeed.
I wish that when pregnant at 19 and seeing that my daughter would die, I had thought to ask why, what was causing it, and the best way forward. But instead I felt doomed, paralyzed by the fear of the prediction.
Remember, the Tarot doesn’t want your power; it’s you that ends up giving your power to the Tarot.
Instead of looking upon what is shown as a fearsome prediction, we can look upon it as a mirror where the questioner can see and understand their patterns clearly. When we take out the fear, it becomes useful. It gives us the clarity to raise our consciousness, leading to understanding and empowerment through free will.
The Tarot mirrors our cycle of life, it goes round and round, like our own predictive patterning. That is the only way The Tarot predicts and if we look at it as a mirror and change ourselves the reflection will change.
This leads me on to one of the most commonly asked questions:
If I see something in the Tarot I can change it, right?
Yes, you can, but only if you see it clearly enough to know why it is there in the first place and truly understand that. If you don’t understand why you are behaving the way you are then your consciousness is still relatively asleep, and whilst it is asleep it will continue in the same rhythm regardless of your efforts to change it.
Free will only exists when we are awake. This is where the Tarot comes into it’s own.
If you don’t understand a particular pattern then ask the Tarot to tell you about it. If you don’t know the best way forward ask the Tarot to show you.
The Tarot is here to help you understand the rhythm of life; it is a map of liberation, a maze to freedom, and once it unlocks, the freedom and magic it will open up for you will amaze you.
Tiffany Crosara learnt a lot the hard way, the pain of misunderstanding became the liberation of understanding which she went on to share with the world by writing The Transformational Truth of Tarot, which won best spiritual book of 2012 making way for two more awards — best Newcomer TV Psychic and Facilitating people to make better life choices. She gives monthly readings on live TV and her second book The Transformational Truth of YOU! Is released this September.

What Is Tarot Astrology? Open or Close
Tarot astrology is the system through which a reading of the cards in a tarot deck help you through troubled times by offering a reflection on your past, present and future. Tarot is closely associated with astrology as each card relates to a planet, element, or astrological sign.
Tarot cards are used for divination, often known as fortune telling. But, many psychologists have used them as well, feeling that the cards often make patients delve in to how they feel about themselves. This is done through the subconscious. For example, let’s say you know work is not going well, but you do not allow yourself to think about it. Getting a tarot card reading that shows you need to change occupations is not really telling your future so much as it is making you face what is really going on in your life.Read More
- The Tarot Open or Close
The Tarot (pronounced tair-row) is a combination of teachings that reflect the aspects of life, a symbolic "book of life" in the form of pictures that can be read or meditated on from "cover to cover". It can also be opened randomly for insights to issues. As a source of information, it is actually a channel by which pictures bring the situation to light and explain what caused it to occur. Those same pictures depict how the situation is being played out as well as the predicted outcome when placed in "spreads" of various patterns. That outcome will be in accordance to the choices that have currently been made by the client as well as outside influences which they have little or no control over. The Querrent (person asking the question), needs to be informed of this so they understand that they have free will and can apply it if they so choose. The Tarot is informative, enlightening, and it's accurate.Read More
- The Tarot: An Intuitive Health Tool Open or Close
When I began reading the Tarot Decks back in 1973, I used the traditional readings. Later on, I studied Carl Jung and his analysis of using Tarot for the study of emotional and mental problems. The many students in my area were using the Major Arcana of Tarot Cards to do the analysis. After many years, I have finally discovered a mannerism to use the entire Tarot Deck for the ‘Healing Intuitive Reading’. In this reading, we examine five planes of health in a being. The heart and blood, the liver, pancreas, adrenals and kidneys, thymus, immune system and finally, the brain, are examined.Read More

If you are just learning the Tarot, print off this list of tarot card meanings to keep as a handy reference – it can be easier to look up meanings on a sheet of paper rather than flipping through the little white booklet that comes with most Tarot decks.
The Tarot deck is made up of 78 Tarot cards, each with its own unique Tarot card meaning. There are 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 Minor Arcana cards across four suits (Cups, Pentacles, Swords and Wands).
