Excerpt from "The Transformational Truth of Tarot"

Empowerment

by Tiffany Crosara


Apart from prediction, the second way to use the Tarot is as a

mirror. Like a mirror, Tarot can reflect back to the questioner the

patterns they are stuck in. More important than the power to

predict, is the Tarot’s power to wake us up. Instead of looking

upon what is shown as a fearsome prediction, we can look upon

it as a mirror where the questioner can see and understand their

patterns clearly. When we take out the fear, it becomes useful. We

can raise our awareness and consciousness, which will lead to

understanding and empowerment through free will. Remember

I stated earlier that the Major Arcana represented a cycle of life,

it just goes round and round, like our own predictive patterning.

That is the only way The Tarot predicts, if we look at it as a

mirror and change ourselves the reflection will change.

I also said that in order for a Tarot deck to be classed as Tarot,

it has to have seventy-eight cards made up of twenty-two Major

Arcana and fifty-six Minor Arcana. Well as far as I know there is

one exception to the rule, which is the Osho Zen Tarot. The Osho

Zen Tarot has seventy-nine cards, fifty-six of which are Minor

Arcana and twenty-three are Major, which means there is an

extra Major Arcana. This extra Major is called The Master. When

The Master shows up in a reading, the consciousness has

awakened to such a heightened level that we have freed

ourselves from our current cycle, just as we will eventually

escape completely from Samsara — the Buddhist word for the

illusion and suffering of the world. This leads me on to one of the

most commonly asked questions:

If I see something in the Tarot I can change it, right?

Yes, you can, but only if you see it clearly enough to know why it

is there in the first place and truly understand that. If you don’t

understand why you are behaving the way you are then your

consciousness is still relatively asleep, and whilst it is asleep it

will continue in the same rhythm regardless of your efforts to

change it. Free will only exists when we are awake. This is where

the Tarot comes into its own. If you don’t understand a particular

pattern then ask the Tarot to tell you about it. If you don’t know

the best way forward ask the Tarot to show you. Most people

forget to ask Tarot these very fundamental questions and ask

fear-loaded questions instead. Asking fear-loaded questions for

reassurance just breeds disempowerment and obsessive

anxieties. This is not only the case if the Tarot is mirroring the

fear, but also applies if it is mirroring the desire. Either way, it

creates attachment, attachment creates imbalance, imbalance

creates dis-harmony, dis-harmony creates dis-ease and dis-ease is

disempowerment, a very slippery slope indeed.

I wish that when pregnant at nineteen and seeing that my

daughter would die, I had thought to ask why, what was causing

it, and the best way forward. But instead I felt doomed, paralyzed

by the fear of the prediction. Remember the Tarot doesn’t want

your power, it’s you that ends up trying to give your power to the

Tarot. The only way to avoid getting into a power struggle is to

understand how the Tarot empowers you. With this in mind, let’s

now journey on to these powerful pathways of empowerment…
