Tarot & Dream Work
Show Notes

Both are excellent tools for strengthening one’s intuition and both unlock the door to hidden realms of insight, meaning and self-discovery in the unconscious. Since our unconscious can speak to us through dreams and Tarot, we can use one to strengthen our relationship with the other. Using Tarot images and dream symbols together seems to open a dialog between the conscious and subconscious mind that is normally closed, creating a powerful synergy.   Symbols, words, people, and environments are very personal and there is no one meaning for them. This is where working with a magical tool like the Tarot can help bring some more clarity.
