Curious beginnings

26 March 2017

In her book Holistic Tarot, Benebell Wen describes tarot as being subjective, "it cannot tell you anything you don't know already. It tells you exactly what you know, but have not yet permitted your conscious mind to confront. It is about accessing the unconscious, the same theory behind psychoanalysis and modern-day psychology." This truly fascinates me!

After embarking on an informal study of the cards as a personal development tool, I've taken the plunge and started this blog as an online journal. It's a place to record my musings about oracle and tarot cards, insights gathered from them, and the resources and books I'm using to decipher all of the above. I am most definitely not into 'fortune telling' and approach the cards as a method of personal investigation and development.
You can learn to use tarot as a holistic tool that can help us mine our own unconscious to find answers. You can learn to use tarot to make informed decisions and improve your future. The cards do not tell us what to do. Rather, they help us think about our problems from a different perspective and, like a diagnostic tool for decision-making, help chart a roadmap for the solution. - p1 'Holistic Tarot' by Benebell Wen
I don't know what else might end up here. There isn't any particular plan, I'll just start writing and see where it goes. You're welcome to stick around if these things appeal to you too or if, like me, you're just curious.
