Tarot Card Philosophy

Tarot Card Philosophy

How is it possible for randomly drawn cards to have any meaning in someone's life or what's going on? Most readers believe the Tarot can help you understand the options that you have. The cards do not tell you what to do or what will happen in the future. They only show you the possibilities, depending on which path you choose. Let's take a look at how Tarot cards might work.

Synchronicity

Carl Jung believed that in addition to the repeatable cause-and-effect relationships on which the scientific world is so strongly based, there is also another connecting principle that does not share that cause-and-effect relationship. He called this principle synchronicity. Jung believed that synchronicity is the explanation for the guiding forces of the universe. Sometimes we mistake coincidence for coincidence. But they can be signs that help us make decisions, and guide our lives - if we are able to recognize them.

Jung believed quantum mechanics might be the explanation for synchronicity. Quantum mechanics is a way to explain the interconnectedness of particles, and how they relate. Behaviors are probabilities, not certainties. Some believe that quantum mechanics influences the reality of physical objects. Tarot cards could play the role of showing us patterns and helping us to understand those guiding energies. You can change the probabilities by seeing the possible outcomes of the Tarot reading. However, quantum mechanics states that once you see these possible outcomes, you have changed the probabilities. Jung didn't study Tarot but he was intrigued in I Ching (another divination tool). He suggested that synchronicity might be a possible explanation for how I Ching works for divination.

Projecting

Many believe it comes down to the subconscious mind. It is possible to argue that how we perceive things depends heavily on our subconscious mind. There are also those who believe that the subconscious project its interpretations of the Tarot cards. Your interpretation of the Tarot cards will depend on the circumstances in your life. So you can see the answers to the questions you have about yourself, which is usually the reason you consult the Tarot. The Tarot can be used to help us tap into our subconscious and find answers we didn't even know were possible. Similar principles are used in the Rorschach Inkblot Test to tap into your subconscious. It is up to you to believe that Tarot cards have any power or ability of shedding light on your life. Your future, your problems and your future may depend on how open your mind is to the idea. There are many theories and interpretations of the Tarot cards. Some say that the Tarot is all we need to help us to find our inner guide on our own.
