Tarot Card Meditation Techniques
In my podcast, we look deeply into the Empress card. The Empress tarot card represents female fertility and the creative process when it is in the upright position. The image on the card is shown as a beautiful lady, crowned and largely pregnant. The Empress is the mother figure, the one who brings life into the world, and who nurtures creativity. She embodies our feminine side, the soft, warm, giving side of each of us. The Empress is the ideal mother and represents the powerful influence of women in this world. She is the image of the supreme female power!
Remember, you aren't limited to meditating with just one card. This same meditation can be adapted to use with other archetypes of the tarot. As you may know, the tarot represents a spiritual journey of life. You can choose a tarot card for meditation that represents your stage on that spiritual journey. The card you pick can make the archetype meditation very personal to you.
To help you learn how to meditate with tarot cards, let's look at three you might select for meditation. The following three tarot card archetypes are excellent choices, especially if you are just beginning to use the tarot cards this way.
The first card I'd recommend is the Fool. This is also the first card in the Tarot. The Fool card is the archetype of a young, innocent person, just beginning their journey in life. Most tarot decks show the Fool standing on a cliff, with one foot stepping over the edge and the other foot still on the ground. The Fool is trying to decide whether to take a chance or move back to safety. We can find ourselves in this position at any time in life, no matter our real age. Should we take a chance or stick with what we know? This is perfectly represented by the archetype of the Fool. Meditate on the Fool card and let it help you choose a new path in life or make an important decision.
Our next card is the Magician. The Magician card is an archetype of a person who is diplomatic, knowledgeable, and maybe even a little crafty! He takes the knowledge he has acquired and puts it to use to improve his life. The Magician can always find interesting and clever ways to get what he wants. If you identify with this archetype you may be a very powerful person in your own right. Choose the Magician card for a meditation when you need to find solutions in your life. Let this intriguing archetype help you find a way to utilize your own power and ability!
The final card today is the Emperor. This card is the perfect archetype of male power and energy. The Emperor represents strength and control. Do you know someone, most usually a male, who has those qualities? If so, they are assertive, and like to be in control, both in their life, and maybe even yours! Choose the Emperor card for meditation if you have questions or issues regarding power and control. This might be in yourself or someone close to you. It is an excellent example of the strong male energies and a wonderful card for meditation.
I hope you have found some inspiration today for your own personal meditations with the archetypes of the tarot. I wish you a wonderful meditation.
