Hi, I’m Shelley. Welcome to Sparrow Tarot.
What if you had a tool that tapped your own inner resources to help you navigate your next move or decision in an empowered way? Like a road map, but for your life’s journey?
Tarot cards have been used for centuries as a divinatory tool: to tell fortunes, predict the future, and conjure up stories. But they are also exceptional for something much more down-to-earth and practical: bringing you clarity, ideas and possible solutions for your most pressing concerns and problems.
I believe that the solutions and information the cards provide come from the images themselves and the story they show you, which can bring important themes to light. Your ability to take your story and put its suggestions and ideas to work in your life is the catalyst that can bring positive change.
I view tarot as a tool to help us make empowered decisions and positive changes to live to our highest potential.
Tarot cards are a powerful visual tool that help with exploring options, tapping into innate creativity and intuitive knowledge, and digging deep for insights and personal empowerment to help get back “on track” to feeling and being proactive in your life’s journey.
In this way, a “reading” of the cards offers options, choices, guidance, information, clarity, insight, and answers that come from within.
Questions are raw material to develop a custom spread (the layout of the cards and their individual meanings) that addresses the heart of the matter and desired points for guidance and reflection, much like one might approach a blank journal page prior to writing.
Cards are then drawn through a process based on random shuffling and placed within the specific structure. The symbolic story that emerges is interpreted in the context of the inquiry, allowing stagnant thought processes and “stuckness” to dissolve as they are exposed to fresh thinking and objective insights.
The beauty of the non-controlled idea flows naturally from the completely random nature of the act itself.
What results is an interactive narrative that can hypothesize and delineate factors surrounding the situation, offer new ways to look at it, and provide information and ideas that can be used to make new choices, take new roads, and imagine what might lie ahead.
How the cards always seem to pinpoint the exact message and information needed by those who engage them remains a beautiful mystery.
