Mindfulness and Tarot Cards
Tarot cards serve as a metaphor for life. Spiritually, the 22 cards known as the Major Arcana outline every facet of personal transformation. Contrary to some beliefs, the tarot is not exclusive to telling the future and witchcraft. They serve as a step-by-step guide to taking the steps necessary to overcome depression.
