Tarot Projections

Buy a Tarot deck. (Go with a Rider-Waite deck, which is the familiar and well-written about). They aren’t supernatural. They psychological.   

Tarot cards are rich in imagery. A person draws a card then projects stories on it. They’re a kind of prompt. It’s like picking three words in dictionary and writing a poem or story with those words. 

Look up the cards meaning, or create a meaning. Looking up a card’s meaning prompts you to reach into your own experience and find matching stories. Creating meaning from a card’s images yourself means you draw from your associations with those images. Either way, Tarot cards are a short cut to finding story. Let the images and their meaning be a guide. 

Processing…
Success! You’re on the list.
