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.

Trust Yourself

Remember the cards have many layers of meanings.   One card alone does not mean this to be true.   It takes time to understand Tarot Cards and their meanings.   Trust your intuition when using Tarot.

Tarot cards are NOT a substitute for a doctor, therapist, or other health care professional. Do not use these cards as a guarantee for recovery nor should they be used to diagnose or prescribe. They can only show the energy present.  You should always seek out proper medical advice from the professionals.
