I got my first deck when I was about ten, and I’ve only ever used them to help me figure out what I (or friends that I’ve done readings for) genuinely want. Like you said, the Tarot bring clarity and force you to be honest with yourself. The subconscious connections we make between what the cards “mean” and our own lives is more helpful than any kind of divination, in my opinion.

I loved this piece, thank you for writing it!
