The Quest Tarot: A Journey Yet Undiscovered

This article was written by Joseph Martin
posted under Tarot

She looked at the cards and gasped, ďHow could you know that?Ē Then she whispered, ďNo one knows that.Ē This is only one of the many reactions I have observed to the insights given by the cards in The Quest Tarot.

When you work with The Quest Tarot, your first question might be, ďDo I really want to know?Ē Getting to your answer is vital. Once you have a clear intent, all things become possible thanks to this innovative tool.

A Tool Designed for the Job
The cards in The Quest Tarot have been designed to point out the answers quickly. Take certain cards from the deck and get direct, straightforward answers. Take other cards from the deck and spell out words to help you in putting the pieces together. Other cards tell the timeline in play, or show the people involved in the current drama. The cards contain potent archetypes and visual dynamite to break through blocks of fear and resistance. No misty messages, just clear and concise ways to get you to the answer you are looking for.

Even though ancient symbols and ideas have been included, you can still choose to get to your place of ďknowingĒ by taking the fast road or, if you choose, by taking the long road. Both are available to you in these cards.

Images for Today
To get started with The Quest Tarot, you simply need to have a Yes or No question. Certain cards in the deck contain special symbols. These symbols will give you direct and easy-to-use answers. When the symbol points up, the answer is Yes. When pointing down, the answer is No. When the symbol points to the right, the answer will lie in your future, and when they point to the left, the answer lies in the past. When they point both up and down, it means that the condition is not yet right for an answer to be told. This new feature makes getting started very quick and easy.

A new time feature uses the Aces in the deck. Each Ace has on it a time clock and season indicator. No guessing is needed here. You can easily see and understand the meanings. The four picture symbols on the Aces show the four seasons: summer, fall, winter, and spring. Each clock indicator shows a three-month period. If the clock shows 12, 1, and 2, you know the months are December, January, and February. If you need to get an exact week or day, it becomes possible when doing a ten-card spread.

For those who may not remember what the Two of Cups means, Iíve included key words on each card. The key words are a gentle reminder of the overall meaning of the card and make the process of using The Quest Tarot that much easier.

The cards also contain rune symbols, astrological symbols and associations, gemstone references, Hebrew letters, numbers, and the I Ching. Donít worry, these elements are woven into the design, allowing you to deeply access the richness of information when you are ready. Start on level one or go directly to level ten; itís up to you.

One of the nice features of the book and deck set is that you donít need ten different books to read the cards. The book, Compass: A Guide to The Quest Tarot, explains how to use all these features, as well as a few new ones. A new deck needs a new spread and The Quest Tarot Spread, explained in the book, covers this fascinating divination layout. These and other new features make The Quest Tarot a wonderful new experience for anyone looking for the answers to their questions.

Moving Forward
Our conceptions about our universe have been challenged in recent years. The Hubble Telescope has shown us that our universe is not only larger than we once thought, but that is 100,000 times larger.

If we are to move forward into the incredible journey ahead, we need to embrace new ideas about reality. These innovative cards allow us the chance to alter our vision towards a path yet undiscovered. This exciting new tool is just what we need for our journey of a lifetime.

You are going to love The Quest Tarot. Using the cards has never been easier or more exciting. It is a mind-expanding, heart-opening, reality-bending trip into the future.

Donít wait. What do you need to start? Just spread out the cards and crack open the book. Dim the lights a little, kick off your shoes, and open yourself up

You are about to start your quest.

Sitting here in the dark, watching the moon shine over the autumn landscape (my favorite time of year) I find myself reflecting on the question that is most frequently asked of me: "How do I know if my house is haunted?" The question seems so simple, so endearing and direct, but it is as complex as the human mind or the spiritual realm and it... read this article
