The age of Trump gives us a chance to look at ourselves and analyze our choices with a sharper eye than ever. The tarot is our preferred tool of objectivity as it holds the potential to reveal directly what truths are most vital to optimizing awareness and facilitating effective action.

The tarot seeks to open possibilities and strive toward resolutions by firstly mirroring the actual state of balance of self, or a person or situation, and then pointing out the specific elements needed to achieve an ideal state of equilibrium, which in the tarot occurs between and among thought/awareness, feeling/acceptance, action/genius, and building/working.

The goal of the tarot is the same as of all systems of health and medicine: to attain and maintain balance. At certain times in life, this is a simpler task than at other times, when outside factors seem stronger and obstacles more prevalent. Besides advising us on how to seek wholeness, the tarot can also diagnose the causes of a fragmented situation, shed light on why/how, and even when things seem lost, to focus and center.

Whether you are just starting out or are a veteran of the tarot, you will come to learn that there is a story line always, that explains precisely how we got from A to B to C and so on. Understanding that process in as much historical detail as you have the concentration to research is key to gathering control over the present and the future. Gaining knowledge of how life veers on or off course provides an opportunity to make new choices and discover alternative pathways.

As you can tell, the tarot is an invaluable system of navigation, which can be indispensable and unrivaled especially at a time of national and international collective chaos; firstly, by bringing your own spirit and life to understanding and henceforth evolution, but also in gaining knowledge of the world’s process, how it arrived at its current state, and how through individual increased conscious awareness, each can start to live in a way that reflects and builds upon such wisdom, thus introducing a new method of not just surviving but living fully in harmony, wealth and sustained bliss.
