Tarot Keywords 

Sometimes you need a simple list of single tarot keywords to get the gist of what your card spreads may mean.

The association of a single catchword to each card can make a deck of Tarot Cards an easy to use oracle for self-divinatory purposes.  Perhaps the best thing is to make your own list of keywords, ones that resonate with you, but that can take a considerable amount of time and effort to complete. And in the copious amount of “How To Read Tarot” books on the market, you will find many contradictions on the key meanings of each tarot card.

I’ve been a professional clairvoyant and intuition coach for many years, and I like to use Tarot Cards at times. I’ve always taught my students to dump the books of meanings, and to relax their minds into a state of psychic resonance. Then, when gazing at the cards, to allow themselves to follow the images and meanings that simply jump into their attention. This is called Tarot-Voyance (or as I’ve branded it, TarotVision™). 

So I created this list of Tarot Catchwords to assist those who needed a tangible single word meaning for each card while they learned. It’s just like having a set of training wheels on a child’s bicycle. Once the fear of falling has gone and the sense of balance takes over, those training wheels can be discarded for good.
