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 VeneficaTM
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...
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.
