How Do Tarot Symbols Work?

By:  M Rhiane

Many people nowadays have heard of or even practiced tarot reading, but not many of them truly understand how tarot symbols actually work.

Tarot cards consist of symbols, images, colors, elements, numbers, astrology signs and archetypes, which give guidance and insight in understanding our minds and ourselves. Some people linked tarot symbols to pagan beliefs and even to negative and dark sides because of its rich history, which begins in the 15th century.

There are two types of tarot symbols - the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. Major Arcana replicates the principle events in our lives while the Minor Arcana is based on experiences, situations and the path in the future. It is not easy to understand how the tarot exactly works or how it is possible to pinpoint the events in our lives. Tarot symbols work on our intuitive side and psychic abilities, which are difficult to comprehend by our intellectual side.

The universe and everything in it is entirely connected, as many believed, and the outer world is the reflection of our inner world. So when we select a card, it is a reflection of our inner self. Every individual has a different interpretation of every tarot symbol and it is best to stick to what you believe in. Tarot cards are only guides to our lives and they should not rule our existence. Tarot symbols cannot tell us our exact future and it all depends on our free will and which path we choose to take.
