I have been writing about Tarot for some time, and like most people I have found that there are themes that run through the cards. I have delved into cards with elements of healing and cheating so far. Today the focus on those cards that have an element of gratitude.
It is something that over time you will find easier to understand.
- Any one card doesn’t necessarily indicate gratitude, it is the combination of cards that will tell the story.
- Look for reversals – They often reveal a need for gratitude or a lack there of.
- In context of Self in the reading, the card could mean the sitter is grateful.
