Yesterday, I worked with a delightful client over the tarot. We explored three aspects of hir life — career, living space location, and intimate relating. Together, we designed layouts (maps for the session) that, when combined with whatever cards came up, would illuminate these arenas. What I loved about this session was that in all three spreads a common theme began to develop. Even though we began by assessing and strategising around the topics chosen, a deeper lesson or message bubbled up from each. The client got a catch in hir throat as s/he took this in and responded to it.
No matter what we choose to look at on the surface, if we stay still long enough and really look and listen, we’ll notice that Life is doing Its best to offer us something richer that will help us to mature and thrive. This guidance may come as clear answers or it may be in the form of more questions to take us further along the path of self-knowledge.
