Each chapter of Tarot Journaling is based on a position in a Celtic Cross spread. One of the first chapters, for example, is called “Significant Decisions.” Just as the first card in a Celtic Cross represents — or signifies — the person the reading is for, chapter one describes techniques you can use to find a journal that will best suit your needs. The next chapter, based on the covering card, offers tips, tricks and time-saving techniques that will cover your situation. After that, a chapter on the crossing card describes ways to overcome writer’s block and other obstacles that might cross your journaling path. Ultimately, each chapter in Tarot Journaling parallels a position in the Celtic Cross, just as tarot reading and tarot journaling parallel each other in real life.
Tarot journaling, of course, isn’t a new concept. For years, tarot teachers and experts have said that a tarot journal is an essential tool for any serious student of the cards. Until now, however, those students have had to figure out how to keep a tarot journal all on their own. Tarot Journaling solves that problem by offering step-by-step instructions and advice to help you start — and keep — the tarot journal of your dreams.
But Tarot Journaling isn’t only for tarot readers and students. That’s because the tarot is a ready-made system for anyone who wants to reflect on his or her life in a journal. In fact, when you incorporate tarot cards in the journaling process, you have a pre-designed template for self-discovery. As every tarot reader knows, the cards make it easy to see yourself as you really are — and to envision the person you would like to become. When you combine the use of the tarot with a journal, you create a powerful vehicle for growth and change. Adding tarot cards to a journaling routine can help you recognize obstacles, overcome barriers and make the most of your gifts and talents. The tarot is an ideal tool for exploring your inner world, and the tarot journal is an ideal vehicle to house your record of your travels.
