Synchronicity And Tarot Cards

By Caroline :: :: Leave a comment

Do you ever feel that your weekly card readings arrive just on time? Sometimes it can feel spooky how accurate they are at that time in your life.

The same feeling can happen when we use the online readings or pull a spread of cards at home. The cards fall in a seemingly random pattern, yet they all somehow make perfect sense.

This is what we call synchronicity and this concept has been studied by many great thinkers, including the psychiatrist C.G. Jung and the physicist Wolfgang Pauli.

The idea is that events, people and places can be connected without cause and effect but instead by a kind of invisible web ties together all of existence, including the past and the future.

Perhaps when we do readings we create a small web of images we mirror the larger web of our experience. What do you think? It makes sense to me :)

Cards became popular in Europe during the renaissance of the 12th century. Some people just used cards for trick taking games and gambling, but some also knew the cards had a spiritual quality and could be used to pass on knowledge and share wisdom.
