Medieval Stories: Insights from the Tarot

The Tarot originally was like a picture book for illiterate peasants, a sort of pilgrim's progress featuring the journey of the human soul from hell to heaven. This may sound archaic to a modern mind but in reality there is much to learn if we view it as a psychological process. Hell might as well be a medieval term for the unconscious state where one suffers from depression and various neurosis, and heaven for mental health. By comparing the symbolism between my cards and those of the Tarot I'm looking to learn from these medieval insights and see it from the perspective of today’s psychology. Some Tarot cards are missing from the journey at the moment but I'll get to them as I continue my progress with the Oracle deck.<br>
