Playing with Scale and Context

Stay on your toes when reading tarot cards, and you will be able to dance around questions of scale and context. Does the 10 of Swords come up because you are going to a bowling party? In that case, it might show next to the 10 of Wands. Rack ’em up, knock ’em down! It turns the normally apocalyptic-looking 10 of Swords into a light-hearted goal. Who doesn’t want utter destruction for those 10 pins? However, if your bowling party happens to be scheduled for Veterans’ Day, the meaning of the card is catapulted to a different plane. Next to any trump, the combination will hit you with a profound message of sacrifice and loss. Can you get comfortable with meanings that overlap and play games with one another? If so, Tarot is for you.
