The most widespread premise as to how Tarot readings work is based on the Tarot’s ability to help us tap into our intuitive natures. For most of us, access to our intuition is associated to our unconscious. The unconscious represents the unseen aspects of our psyches. This is the realm of our souls and it is often the motivating force to our behaviors. The unconscious is the world of universal knowledge and collective experience. It is here that we discover our own truths. The unconscious contains our oldest memories and experiences. In essence, The Tarot is like a doorway. It exposes the inner workings of our own unconscious and helps us in discovering our own personal truths.
Most importantly, the Tarot reading enables us to assign meanings to our own lives. The symbols depicted on Tarot cards are archetypal. Archetypes are universal themes that reflect basic patterns of human experience. They represent the thoughts and emotions that we all identify with. The archetypal imagery throughout the Tarot is universal in nature. They reference the life stages we must confront in order to obtain spiritual transformation.
