Tarot for women's empowerment

As I have been using tarot cards over the year, one thing I continue to use them form is for personal guidance and insight. More and more of us are turning to tarot for self-discovery and empowerment, especially women. There are several women I work with that use Tarot cards. I have good friends who use tarot as well. It’s because Tarot is a reflection of our energies in the moment. We use tarot to help us understand our past, present, and near future. We want guidance in our personal life and work life. Mostly we want to use the cards to help up feel more confident about our decisions and to make sure our decisions reflect our values.

Women often want to have a tarot reading to find a sense of direction when we’re thinking of making a change or to gain clarity on our path in life. For women, tarot can be used for personal empowerment. Each card has so much information on it, and there are different messages depending on the situation. We want to use the symbols of each card and using them to help us make our decision making clearer. People automatically feel more confident once we make a decision. The wisdom the cards have give a boost to your thoughts.Using our tarot cards helps us see different paths that we can take, and we have the confidence to choose the one that fits best with our values.

Shuffling the tarot deck, laying out the cards, and interpreting their meanings can be a personal ritual that centers and calms us. It’s a time to tune out the noise of the world and listen to our inner voice.

I find that I have two times during the day that are good for me to do a tarot reading. One is first thing in the morning, while it is still quiet and the day hasn’t gotten a way from me yes. I pull a card and get a overall feeling for the day.

The other time that works for me is over the weekend, mid afternoon, so I don’t have to rush my reading. This is where I choose a larger spread to work on. My early morning draw is like an overview but doing a longer spread during the day affords the time to really dig into each card and see how the cards work with each other. This is where I find the cards help us to recognize our power .

Tarot can be a powerful tool for personal growth and self-reflection. It encourages us to tap into our intuition and embrace our feminine energy.

The Tarot Deck

A regular 78 cards deck often feature archetypes that resonate with feminine energy, such as the High Priestess card, representing wisdom and mystery. The Goddess Tarot is a special deck that focuses exclusively on feminine deities and qualities, empowering us with every card we draw.

Tarot Cards and Their Meanings

Tarot cards serve as a mirror to our soul, reflecting our innermost thoughts and feelings. We find empowerment by interpreting cards like The Empress, which stands for femininity, creativity, and nurturing. When we see The High Priestess, think about our inner wisdom and the secrets of ourselves we might not even know about. When you are first starting out with Tarot cards, It is important to spend a lot of time with the Major Arcana, sowe can learn the meanings and what strength we are offered by the cards.

Minor Arcana’s Role

The Minor Arcana cards focus on day-to-day events and emotions. They might not be as grand as the Major Arcana cards, but they are just as important for our empowerment. These cards show us the small bumps in the road and ways we can navigate through them. We can put all these little bumps in our pockets, gaining confidence in ourselves that we can overcome the everyday struggles and triumphs, helping us recognize the power we have in making our decisions.

Practical Applications of Tarot in Daily Life

The Goddess Tarot brings inspiration from feminine energies and deities, guiding us in specific life areas such as career, relationships, and personal well-being.

  1. Career: Draw a card to represent your current job satisfaction and another for potential growth.
  2. Relationships: Use the cards to explore the energy surrounding your connections with others.
  3. Well-being: Reflect with the tarot on your physical and emotional health.

Privacy and Personal Space

We understand the importance of having a safe and private space for our tarot readings. It’s our right to maintain that personal area where we can tune into our readings without interruption. Always remember, any information you share with others, including an email address, should be protected by a strict privacy policy. Tarot is a personal journey, and maintaining our privacy is a way to honor that path.

In our journey with tarot, we’ve discovered it’s much more than a deck of cards; it’s a powerful tool for unity and cultural influence, especially for women seeking empowerment.

Tarot and Female Empowerment Movements

We’ve seen how tarot has woven itself into female empowerment movements. The imagery and symbols within the major arcana cards resonate deeply with personal growth and understanding. For instance, The Empress can represent creativity and nurturing, traits often encouraged in these movements. Queen-themed tarot decks have become popular, focusing on the narrative of strong female figures. Such decks are not only used for personal reflection but also in gatherings and groups aimed at fostering solidarity and self-confidence among women.

Tarot in Digital Age

Tarot has embraced the digital age, connecting people across the globe. Online tarot communities are thriving on platforms like Etsy, where artists and creators sell their unique card designs. Here, the love for tarot thrives, but it’s important to consider Etsy’s advertising platform which helps in discovering new and diverse decks. Digital readings and tarot apps also offer new ways to engage, with delivery times being instantaneous, unlike traditional methods. This digital shift has helped tarot become a tool for daily inspiration and community building.

Professional Tarot Reader Insights

Professional tarot readers have contributed significantly to the tarot community. They share insights and guidance, shaping the narrative around tarot as a medium for empowerment. These readers often focus on the importance of setting intentions and reflection when consulting the cards. They also help us reduce the myths around tarot cards. For example, they remind us that the cards aren’t for looking into the future, but to help us understand what is going on in our lives right now.

Tarot in Modern Day Feminism

Tarot has become a tool we see more and more in modern feminism. It’s not just about predicting the future; it’s about empowerment and reflection, especially for young girls and women of color, as well as showcasing society’s changing attitudes.

Empowering Young Girls and Women of Color

We know that everyone deserves to see themselves represented in the tools we use for empowerment. That’s why tarot has grown in popularity, with a huge variety of custom clothing and accessories featuring tarot designs. Take, for example, the internationally famous artist Petra Braun. She creates tarot-themed items that are not only stunning but also celebrate diversity. These items resonate with young girls and women of color, offering them a way to see themselves in the mystical world of tarot.

Take Cecilia Lattari, an artist who has designed a gorgeous deck of tarot cards with inclusivity at its heart. The imagery in her decks focuses on empowering underrepresented groups, truly connecting the centuries-old practice of tarot with the needs of today’s feminist movement.

Tarot as a Reflection of Society’s Shift

As our society shifts toward greater equality, tarot is right there alongside us, reflecting these changes. When we look at tarot cards, we’re often looking for answers or guidance. But what’s remarkable about the tarot community now is the push for decks that mirror our diverse society. These progressive decks aren’t just mystical tools; they’re powerful statements that advocate for change and inclusion.

The gorgeous deck created by Cecilia Lattari, with its thoughtful imagery, is a prime example. It stands as a testament to our collective journey towards a more inclusive world. By embracing tarot, we’re not just exploring our individual paths, but we’re also acknowledging and celebrating the beautiful tapestry of our society.

We find ourselves in a time where tarot and feminism are intertwined. Tarot is a mirror to our progress, and through it, we’re weaving a narrative of empowerment that spans across age, race, and culture.

Enhancing the Tarot Experience

When we step into the world of tarot, we empower ourselves by fostering deeper connections with the cards. Let us explore how to enhance our tarot experiences through personal touch, artistic interpretation, and expanding our knowledge base.

Creating a Personal Connection

We often make a personal connection to our tarot deck by studying each card. The symbols begin to have more meaning as we look across our deck and find particular symbols on dfferent cards. You want to start by picking a deck that speaks to you; many women find the vibrant and diverse images in the Light Seers Deck help make sense with their journey.

Also, pay attention to the card number significance, as each has its own energy and message that can be particularly revealing in our spiritual practices. Tarot is closely associated with numerology.

Another way to creat a personal connection to your deck is to annotate your thoughts or feelings about the cards in a journal to track your progress and deepen your connection.

The Artistic Side of Tarot

Tarot is not just a tool for guidance; it’s also a medium of artistic expression. Embrace the colors, symbols, and characters of your cards. For a fun experience, use things like coloring books or stickers to personalize your deck. Such activities not only make the tarot more relatable to us but also aid in memorizing the meanings behind each card. They become truly ours—an extension of our personalities and spiritual practices.

Resources and Learning

Building our knowledge of tarot can significantly enhance our experience. Look for books with excellent 5-star reviews to ensure you’re learning from the best. Websites like Aeclectic Tarot offer forums where we can discuss cards and share interpretations. They also feature reviews and articles, which are helpful for continuous learning. Remember, whether we’re beginners or seasoned practitioners, there’s always more to learn in the world of tarot.

Joining my Facebook group is another resource to learn more about tarot and manifesting.

Ethical Considerations and Future Directions

As tarot readers, we need to think about the ethics involved in reading for others. We want to protect the privacy of our people, but also we want to have our practice seen as professional. There won’t be many returning customers if we have a reputation of sharing readings with other people. We always want to respect the people who are coming to us in a time of need.

Privacy and Ethical Practices

When we talk about empowering women through tarot, we have to put privacy at the forefront. These practices should always follow a privacy policy that protects personal information. Here’s how we can make this happen:

  • Every professional tarot reader should have a clear privacy policy, which is communicated up front.
  • Details from tarot readings are a personal affair and should be treated with the utmost confidentiality.

Tarot’s Role in Future Feminist Movements

Looking into the future of Tarot, women’s use of tarot cards is going to continue to grow. Tarot empowers women by helping the build their own strength in themselves. A couple of roles that I expect to to continue in the future are:

  1. Community Support: Building groups where individuals can share and reflect on their tarot readings can foster solidarity.
  2. Empowerment Tools: Using tarot as tools for personal growth and empowerment, encouraging women to take the first step in their journey of self-discovery.

In both these ways, tarot of empowerment can be a vibrant part of supporting women’s progress.
