Tarot and The Body

Tarot is a centuries-old divination system that uses the Major Arcana cards to gain insight into a person’s past, present, and future. Each card has a unique meaning and symbolism, which can be interpreted in different ways depending on the context and the question being asked. While many people use tarot as a tool for personal reflection and self-discovery, some practitioners believe that the tarot can also be used to gain insights into the physical body and its health.

According to this approach, each of the Major Arcana cards is associated with a specific part of the human body. For example, the Fool card is said to correspond to the head, while the Lovers card is associated with the arms and the hands. By drawing a card and interpreting its meaning in the context of the body part it represents, it is believed that one can gain insight into the health and well-being of that area.

There are different ways to use tarot for body readings, but one common method is to draw a single card and interpret it in the context of a specific body part. For example, if someone is experiencing pain in their back, they may draw a card and interpret its meaning in relation to the spine. If they draw the Temperance card, which is associated with balance and moderation, they may interpret this as a message that they need to take a more balanced approach to their physical activities or seek out treatments that promote balance in the body.

Another approach is to use a spread, which is a specific layout of cards that is used to answer a specific question or gain insight into a particular area of life. For a body reading, a spread may be designed to focus specifically on the physical body and its health. For example, a spread might include cards that represent different body parts or systems, such as the heart, the lungs, the digestive system, and so on. Each card is then interpreted in the context of the body part it represents, with the overall spread providing a more comprehensive picture of the person’s physical health.

While tarot and the human body may seem like an unlikely pairing, many practitioners believe that the symbolism and imagery of the tarot can be a powerful tool for gaining insights into the body and its health. By using the tarot in this way, it is possible to gain a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection and how our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs can affect our physical well-being.
