Heart of Tarot: An Intuitive Approach

by Amber K Azrael Arynn K

Your mind has an infinite capacity to make connections and to find meanings in disconnected facts or abstract symbols. Gestalt Tarot strips the cards of their traditional meanings, then asks you to find your own meanings in the cards. Thus, Gestalt Tarot allows you to find the symbols, fields of meaning, or patterns that easily represent significant factors in your own life or thought patterns. In all these ways, Gestalt Tarot is in harmony with the basic tenets of humanistic psychology. It honors human creativity and choices by offering a mutable view of the future, not a glimpse of an unalterable fate. It defines meaning as that which is significant to you, no matter whether it is sense or nonsense to another. And it values the dignity and strength of the individual by empowering you to explore, understand, and guide your own life.
