I don’t read tarot to find out the future.
Let me say that again.
I don’t read tarot to find out the future. Well, not usually. Not for myself, anyway.
Well, I guess my attitude is, who cares about what’s going to happen in the future? We can always change that!
Because we can: the future is something we get to interact with and mix our labor with. Why on earth would you spend a lot of time worrying about it? Just act on it! Work to bring about your desired outcome. (Ask the tarot what you can do to bring about your desired outcome: that will be more productive than asking what will happen. Or, ask the tarot what you can’t do; that can be very interesting too.)
The past, on the other hand, interests me very much. And the past you can delve into and find things out about. It’s there to be found out about. It’s not this thing that is constantly in flux, that you can dance with, like the future is. We may think the past is known, and the future is unknown, but in fact, plenty of the past is just as unknown as the future.
The present is even MORE interesting, though. What could be more interesting than our present situation? The present is where everything magical happens. It’s where universal guidance comes through. It’s where miracles occur. It’s where WE ARE!!!!!
Yep, I MUCH prefer looking at the present.
Does the present contain the seeds of the future? Of course. And absolutely you can discern some of what may lie in the future by looking at the past and present. That’s the way cause and effect works: the things that happen earlier do affect the things that happen later.
If you really needed to know the future, though, you’d be in it. Instead, look at what seeds you are watering and nurturing. If it’s guidance you want, that’s where it’s to be found: right here, in the present moment.
