19 STASHED IDEAS

The science of tarot
  1. The accuracy of the tarot reading is almost irrelevant as long as the practice guides the user to feel supported and attuned with their healthiest, most authentic sense of self.
  2. The reassurance of putting our faith in an external power is often a helpful support as humans like to feel connected to something larger than themselves.
  3. We like to have a sense of predictability and order and therefore we try to make patterns and meaning out of events during chaotic times.
