Solara Occulto Tarot

Tarot of the Hidden Sun

 

 

Welcome to Solara Occulto Tarot.

 

Within your forehead chakra lies a 144 petaled lotus.

From this lotus spans 12 rays of light which correspond to the 12 cranial nerves

and the 12 months of the calendar year.

Let these cards reignite your sacred intuition which has been hidden from you.

Let these cards reignite your sacred intuition which was bestowed upon your

divine essence.

Let these cards reignite your divinely gifted sacred intuition, waking it from its

long slumber. Like a great dragon has this intuition taken path through the light and

the darkness, and harnessing the powers of time has it been waiting for the arrival

of your deep seated memory to bring it forward again.

More than a fortune telling tool, the tarot can show you presently the obstacles

within your path, to help you reach the manifestation of the reality that you most

deeply desire by pulling from your deep sub-conscious.

Shuffling your Tarot:

The shuffling of the Tarot is a way to pull from the deepest parts of yourself;

Infusing the cards with your intention and questions.

Shuffling the cards should be done with deep attention while meditating on

your query. Adding crystals to the table can greatly magnify this experience.

much more in sync with your core values than the one that you’ve now left behind.

future of your life at this time.

One can see this as an awakening into seeing the multi-dimensional Self.
