  • How does Tarot work, anyway?
    Great question! So, this is definitely a matter of some debate, so all I can tell you is my personal belief. I believe Tarot is an example of Taught Intuition. Intuition is a phenomenon we're all familiar with and is largely accepted; twins sensing each other's emotions, parental instincts, and gut feelings are all good examples of intuition in our daily lives. Taught Intuition is the idea that you can learn to focus this ability through practice and instruction. My favorite non-Tarot example of this interesting phenomenon is actually a practice called chicken sexing, which I highly encourage you to read up on! To quote Joshua Foer from his book Moonwalking with Einstein: “What makes chicken sexing such a captivating subject—the reason that academic philosophers and cognitive psychologists have authored dissertations about it, and the reason that my own research into memory had brought me to this arcane skill—is that even the best professional sexers can’t describe how they determine gender in the toughest, most ambiguous cases. Their art is inexplicable. They say that within three seconds they just “know” whether a bird is a boy or a girl, but they can’t say how they know. Even when carefully cross-examined by researchers, they can’t give reasons why one bird is a male and another is female. What they have, they say, is intuition." So, to conclude what was probably a much longer answer than you were looking for, I believe that Tarot is channeling that method of taught intuition to learn to read the cards and energies just as chicken sexers read the rear ends of chicks. Through practice, mentorship, and more practice, tarot readers (like me!) have learned to read their cards and help others (like you!) see what intuition tells us. Curious?
