What are Tarot Cards in Therapeutic Imagery?
In therapeutic contexts, Tarot cards are a curated collection of 78 visual symbols, utilized not just for their historical divination purposes but as tools for introspection, dialogue, and therapeutic insight. Each card, intricately designed, serves as a mirror to the subconscious, enabling clients and therapists to tap into underlying emotions, beliefs, and narratives. When interpreted in therapeutic scenarios, the cards can facilitate deep emotional exploration, open pathways for personal growth, and foster an understanding of intricate life themes and lessons. Their visual nature makes them especially powerful in drawing out responses rooted in personal symbolism and meaning.
