Opening the Tarot Door

"If our minds are glorious mansions,
and our spirits are the surrounding landscape,
then the Tarot is a doorway
revealing a wide realm of ever-increasing
beauty, insight, and mystical experience." --Avia Venefica

card images from the Aquarian Tarot deck

All humanity is intimate with the idea there is more to our lives than what meets our eyes. We instinctually strive beyond the limitations of the five senses.

From the fuzzy edges of our psychic vision we see glimmers of events that intrigue us...

  • Where do we go for clarity when these glimmery subtleties appear?
  • How can we get perspective when we are faced with questions about ourselves, our community, our future, present and past?
  • Upon what may we rely to provide us guidance when we are still yet unsure of our own worth and power?
tarot answers

They may not be the answers we want to hear or we may misunderstand them, but answers are always available to us.

Absolutely, the Tarot serves as both message and messenger to vital questions we have about our lives. But the Tarot is not the end-all, be-all of oracles.

Tarot is an effective tool.

Just as a painter commands the brush and a sculptor masters the chisel, the Tarot is another tool in an arsenal of resources we can use for our personal development and understanding.

This website is devoted to
individuals who use their own
minds, hearts and faith as their
primary navigation system
and desire to use the Tarot to
augment their natural growth.

Additionally, Tarot Teachings is committed to re-establishing the honorable, timeless wonder that accompanies the use of Tarot.

The goal here is to restore this esoteric art form back to its original beauty and organic grace.

Over the course of time this website will provide a wealth of in-depth information and proven techniques that will broaden your understanding and allow for psychic advancement.

In the meantime...explore, enjoy, expand.

Bright beams,
