Tarot: Tool for Creating Coincidence

The Tarot is commonly perceived as a medium to “predict the future”, to provide guidance on future directions and events. Some may say that selecting a card and then having that card relate to an event or person is just random coincidence.

I think that Tarot can be a tool for creating coincidence.

By coincidence, I mean co + incident.
Co = with, or together
Incident = an occurence or event that interrupts normal procedure.

Uniting with the incident.

Using Tarot to create coincidence from the random:

Greenwood Tarot - Magician

Unite your perceptions with the images and symbols and energies that the Tarot artist encapsulated in the cards, which will enable you to share in that creative process.  Selecting and meditating on the cards provides you the opportunity to coincide (be together with) the symbolism of the cards, to further explore their nuances and filters.

This co-incidental union of perception and cards also opens a portal to receive and create new insights from the cards’ relationships with events and people and yourself.

The act of selecting random Tarot cards and then meditating on how the selected and arranged cards relate to the world around us and in us…  creates the coincidence.

A dictionary definition of coincidence:

  1. The state or fact of occupying the same relative position or area in space.
  2. A sequence of events that although accidental seems to have been planned or arranged.

A dictionary definition of incident:

  1. A definite and separate occurrence; an event.
  2. A usually minor event or condition that is subordinate to another.
  3. Something contingent on or related to something else.
  4. An occurrence or event that interrupts normal procedure or precipitates a crisis.

So go ahead, interrupt normal procedure, use Tarot (or any tool of your choosing) to create the co-incidence.   Join in the wonder that the random and unexpected can provide.

    Well i would slightly differ from the coincidence part.

    Changes are made not based on unconscious acts but based on facts which the mind can absorb.

    Tarot gives us a perception of a next level, (subconscious mind)

    Having this added edge, we can make a choice to follow the future blindly or to avert the future.

    My 2 cents worth.
