Unlock the key to the Major Arcana and more.
How does understanding the tree empower your card readings and self care?
The Major Arcana reveal the overarching influences in your life and the Tree of Life decodes their meaning.
You wouldn't plan an important event without checking the weather.
Rain, sun, snow, wind, alone or in combination are overarching influences. They could affect both the nature of the event you are planning as well as the logistics involved.
The Weather as an overarching influence, impacts, yet doesn't define the specifics of your day.
The Teen Years, is another example of an overarching influence. So are being Unemployed, Winning the Lotto, Having Cancer or Falling in love.
Overarching influences are important things to take into account when navigating a life challenge.
The cards are like having a coach in your pocket.
Aware and attuned to you and your needs. Your deck speaks to you, in the energetic language of images.
The Tree of Life is a Rosetta stone for your deck. It organizes this same language in it's formation.
I share the Tree in plain english, using relatable examples and fun activities. All so you can recognize this blueprint, at work in your life, as something you already know.
I love teaching people to read the Tarot directly from the cards, without looking anything up in a book. The tree is a shortcut to that process.
Knowing the tree will give you just enough information to activate your intuition.
If I tell you my neighbor is a teenager, you probably have an image of a teenager in your head. I have stimulated your knowing in a way that still leaves lots of room for you to get to know who they are.
I haven't defined them for you, like a juicy piece of gossip might. Yet what I have told you is an important piece of information. It will impact how you weigh, work with, and interpret your personal assessment of who they are.
The tree is the clearest quickest shortcut I know to understanding the Major Arcana. That would be reason enough to learn it. Yet there are other ways in which this understanding can enrich your life.
Because your Tarot deck needs to guide and support you in any situation, it has to contain every situation.
The whole deck can be found on the tree, which also contains all of creation. Being able to recognize a moment in your life as a location on the tree, clarifies your understanding, Illuminates your past and future and connects you as a part of a larger life pattern.
If you know the tree, you know the whole deck. The four elements are the four worlds, the numbers in each suit, are each of the numbered spheres. The face cards are the specific spheres of kingdom, beauty, understanding and wisdom, and the Majors are the pathways between the spheres. Understanding the Tree gives you a no book tarot book.
I love sharing these empowering shortcuts with you.
