It has been a decision that has been a long time coming, but I have decided to blog about a passion of mine that has been close to my heart since my school days, but one that I never really felt comfortable sharing publicly, until now. That passion is Tarot and Synastry. For those of you who don’t know, Synastry is a discipline of astrology which deals particularly with the areas of romantic relationships in a person’s life. You, like me, may have read many horoscope predictions in the local newspaper informing and advising you about various aspects of your love life. It has long been accepted that astrology can indeed predict this area of a person’s life and I personally have had many instances of that being the case. Using the Tarot is also a method of ancient divination, which can also speak of a person’s love life and point out possible pit-falls and opportunities that may be on the horizon.
The tarot deck used for a tarot reading has a direct and strong correlation to certain aspects of astrology. For instance, the four suits being swords, wands, pentacles and cups also relate directly to the four elements in astrology, air, fire, earth and water. For a more clear depiction of these correlations, they are associates thus;
- Swords = Air – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
- Wands = Fire – Sagittarius, Leo, Aries
- Pentacles = Earth – Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo
- Cups = Water – Scorpio, Cancer, Pisces
There are also further meanings and interpretations associated with the cards, for example, the Swords relate to the mind and mental thinking, the Wands often relate to a person’s energy and the opportunities in their life, the Pentacles speak of money, career and finances and the cups talk about emotions. Each card also has a specific significance along with how and when it is drawn and any intuitive messages picked up by the reader. So there is actually quite a lot of information that a reader can pick up on by using and working with the tarot deck. Of course, there is a lot open to interpretation, but if you are having a reading by an experienced tarot reader then you can indeed gain accurate and detailed information in any area of your life.
Synastry in particular is my point of interest so I will be mainly discussing topics around relationships with regards to the tarot. However, I will also start off giving you some insight into the interesting history of tarot, how it came to be and how it has been used throughout the more recent centuries.
I hope you will enjoy my new blog and find tarot and the art of synastry as fascinating and exciting as I have! For more insights into tarot and synastry, please see my homepage here http://kerrisackville.com.
