Tarot and Karma
We are taking a break from our astrological analysis and going back to Tarot for a while. This time we will talk about Tarot and its relationship with karma.
Karma means action, period, that's it. There is nothing fancy about the word. We are all subject to our actions which also comprise, thoughts, feelings, hopes etc. Thus Karma is an all encompassing word for actions in different levels of consciousness. We cannot escape it even God creates karma (work), in the Bhaghvad Gita we read….
"O son of Partha, there is no work prescribed for Me within all the three planetary systems. Nor am I in want of anything, nor have I need to obtain anything--and yet I am engaged in work.
For, if I did not engage in work, O Partha, certainly all men would follow My path.
If I should cease to work, then all these worlds would be put to ruination. I would also be the cause of creating unwanted population, and I would thereby destroy the peace of all sentient beings."
We cannot escape our karma but with the help of the Tarot we can decipher it.
Tarot is an interactive system of universal communication allowing us to connect with the cosmos and find out our role in it and thereby finding our karma.
The different Arcana are the arquetypes we all play in this life. The minor arcana are the day by day activities we face, the nitty gritty factor!
When you put them together you will discover your role and script in this great play we call life.
Being interactive, Tarot allow us to play forward and backwards and analyze our options, on an instant! That's a major advantage from other divinatory systems.
We can identify our role (arquetype,major arcana) and see if we are up to it or maybe we need some fine tuning. And with the minor arcana we can set a time for our actions and see the results.
This is not a magical formula but rather a feedback tool for our own benefit.
Let's make the best of it!
