You've probably noticed that there is a stigma with tarot cards. Until recently, my perception was largely based on the gypsies, witches, and crazy grandmothers I saw in movies foreshadowing doom and gloom with the infamous Death card.
Full disclosure: I had 2 tarot readings - one in college at a psychic fair on campus and one in a crystal shop shortly before I bought my first (and favorite) deck. Both were eerily and amazingly accurate... but that didn't make sense to me. So I decided to learn it myself.
It's taken me years to "get to know" my cards (and I'm still learning), but I love tarot as a tool because it calls me out on underlying themes that I may be avoiding. It invites me to look within when all I want to do is push through my to-do list. It is a check-in and a pause for me when living in my go-go-go world in my go-go-go mind.
