Tarot cards represent different stages of the hero’s journey, so it’s logical that a tarot reading can help you understand your own journey, too. The cards involved in tarot fortune-telling provide insight into your past and present, which in turn makes it easier for you to comprehend your true self and the influences swirling around you. This process can make it easier for you to get a grasp on the direction of your future.
There are 78 cards in a tarot deck, 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana. The Major cards like The Sun or The Fool are used to unlock greater secrets, spiritual forces, and karmic direction whereas the Minor cards (which are split into four suits) interpret lesser secrets and things associated with daily life. Understanding the meaning behind each card is just one piece of the pie. It’s how they are interpreted in a spread that really counts.
It’s important to note that tarot card future predictions are not set in stone—this concept is what scares people as they may not want to know what the future holds. Readings are meant to be taken in a positive manner so that your spread can be used as a guide to help you improve certain aspects of your life—the Celtic Cross and the Three Fates are two of the most common spreads. With that said, cards with ominous names don’t mean your fate is to die or go to Hell. They are merely symbols for conquering roadblocks and making changes so that you can prepare for the future. Let’s take a closer look at the top three tarot cards that signify major life changes.
While this card is associated with addiction, toxic relationships, deceit, and materialism look at it as a wakeup call. Whether you’ve been making some poor choices or you’ve managed to stay in a relationship of bad influence for too long, seeing The Devil means it’s a good time to turn the page and start a new phase, lest your future won’t have the potential to be nearly as bright as it could be. It’s a powerful card, so it’s likely you’ve been in a negative situation for quite some time. An astrologer can help you break the cycle so you can get a fresh start.
Seeing this card in your spread could mean that something shocking happened to you that caught you off guard, thus depleting everything from your bank account or material possessions, or job to your confidence and self-esteem. The good news is that this card is a catalyst for change. You may not have realized it at the time, but it’s likely that whatever was lost was for a good reason and now you have no choice but to start anew. For example, perhaps you were in an abusive relationship or a job that was making you feel empty inside. Even if you may not understand it at the time, it wasn’t meant to be, so this is a good opportunity to reshape your future in a positive light.
There’s no doubt that this is an ominous card but its symbolism could mean the ending of something in your life—not necessarily your own life. As with the aforementioned cards, this is a good thing as it means it’s time to move on to another chapter—not the end of the book. Take advantage of this moment by discarding bad habits, setting new goals, and creating a plan to make the necessary changes in your life to make it even more fulfilling.
