No matter what the origin of the Tarot, it is clear that its motifs
refer to fundamental human psychological and spiritual experiences.
Properly conducted, a reading of the cards is a story. The images
on the cards blend into a meaningful pattern that can clarify the
issues confronting the person for whom the reading is held. If taken
rightly, a reading can act like a vivid, enlightening dream or a
flash of inspiration. Tarot cards can provide a wonderful experience
of meditation. They can also be used for divination or for obtaining
answers to questions. They stimulate intuition, which is the key
to the unconscious. They also illuminate the hidden factors in a
person's life that have a bearing on the situation at hand.
