Tarot cards, much like other forms of divination, are a metaphysical means to communicate with the Divine (i.e. God, Goddess, Angels, Spirit Guides) and loved ones in spirit. Just as we have several means to communicate with one another, e.g. phone, email, facebook, there is more than one means to communicate with the Other Side. The purpose of communicating with the Divine is to receive guidance about your life and life choices.
It doesn’t matter what your religious/spiritual path is, only that you are OPEN to hear what the Divine and loved ones in spirit have to say to you. So allow yourself to hear what you need to hear.
Tarot cards can also be entertaining because just as we have a sense of humor so do the others on the Other Side.
Tarot can be serious or fun, either one! Just like life.
