Tarot, why the obsession ?

Did you notice how the Tarot’s popularity is increasing, especially in the last 2 years?
It will only get stronger in the next few years, and I’ll explain why in a moment.
First, let’s start at the beginning.
What is Tarot? What purpose does it serve in life? Some might ask.
What is the Tarot?
Tarot emerged in the late 18th century in Europe. It grew strongly during the 19th and early 20th centuries. However, its roots, in terms of structure and symbolism, go back much further.
There is considerable debate about the history of tarot, so we won’t go into that in this article.
Tarot is a divinely inspired human invention. This art form has been developed collectively, by many contributors, over the centuries.
It offers clarity and meaning to those who practice it.

The Tarot is like a language that can translate information from the invisible world, just like the runes, the pendulum, the dice, the coffee grounds, or palmistry, among others. The individual cards and the deck as a whole teach us about ourselves and the world around us.
The knowledge is expanded from generation to generation, as new players continue to improve on past teachings.
Tarot use has seen an explosion in popularity in the 21st century. Not so long ago, tarot, like spirituality, was taboo and subject to criticism. Indeed, we all judged its relevance and authenticity through the image given by many horror movies. However, if the malaise still persists, it is only the fruit of an obsolete knowing, conditioned by religions, which associated the Tarot with the occult, in its negative interpretation, and with demonic forces.
Before, fortune-telling was forbidden by the majority of the great religions, which contributed to its poor image.
Fortunately, today, human consciousness is awakening and understanding more and more of the nature of the esoteric and spiritual practices that connect us to the invisible world.
Clairvoyance and divination
Fortune-telling and divination are two different concepts.
The Tarot is a divination tool, but unless you are also a psychic, such as a medium, it is not fortune-telling. The Tarot reads energies. As you probably know by now, at the quantum level, we are made of energy. The material world in which we live is energy. When a Tarot reader connects to their intuition,they can bring accurate information about the state of a person and their environment, through the cards.
Fortune-telling and divination “pierce” the mysteries of probable futures.
Psychic art consists in “seeing” the future using senses. You have the psychics who see the future, the hearing psychics or those who feel with their sixth sense.
Psychic ability is often a gift, or even an inheritance.
This ability is generally spontaneously received, but can however be acquired, willingly, through practice and preferably with someone.
Divination relies on a medium and a ritual such as the Tarot cards, which remains the most popular divination practice. The Tarot reader relies on their knowledge of the cards. They learn their symbols and meanings. They do not have to be specifically gifted, but they frequently have developed a sense of intuition, like myself.
The psychic is a medium who simply translates what the material dictates. Easily accessible to all.
Divination is one of the gateways to understanding the meaning of things and events, on a subtle energetic level.
The purpose of Tarot
The Tarot is a way to connect with existing information from the invisible world and apply it to our own circumstances, allowing us to grow and evolve as a person and spiritual being.
It is an enlightening experience that can bring clarity to our confusing life situations. The Tarot guidance is there to remind us that we have free will, and encourages us to use the information to empower and guide ourselves. The energies read are tendencies, which means that we are the actors of our reality, and we should not put ourselves in the position of helpless, passive victims who wait for their fate, like something set in stone.
The new obsession
If people love the Tarot, it is because, although the effectiveness remains mysterious, it is undeniable.
The cards don’t lie, and it’s awesome.
Tarot is a new form of life coaching. It is kind of like a personal assistant that helps us in our decisions making and action taking in our daily life.
It is no longer limited to our close circle of friends. You will find many Tarot guidance channels on Youtube, Tik tok, Instagram and online more generally.
The growing success of the Tarot opens up diverse professional opportunities, as a Tarot reader and even as a teacher, for those who wish to be of service to others.
