Tarot as an Empowerment Tool

Tarot is an old divination tool consisting of a deck of symbolic cards that has evolved from fortune-telling to a powerful empowerment tool. Whether you read with the traditional 78 cards or use a Major Arcana deck, such as in my Tarot of Empowerment deck, Tarot acts as a tool to access wisdom to navigate life’s challenges and cultivate personal growth.

At its core, Tarot empowers you by providing a framework for introspection. Each card carries symbolic imagery, representing various aspects of the human experience. The cards expand your ability to reflect on your emotions, desires, and challenges. This self-awareness is a first step towards empowerment.

Tarot can help you break negative cycles, while promoting personal growth and fostering a sense of control over your destiny. Tarot readings frequently serve as a catalyst for transformative change.

Here is an empowerment exercise you can do by going to the free card draw at JudythSult.com—or by taking a card from your own deck—and then asking, “What do I call into my life to be empowered?” The way you phrase the question is important so that you know what the card is referring to.

I selected a card, and Choice (the Lovers) came up for me. For me to be empowered, this card indicates that it’s time for me to decide if the way I am living my life comes from a place of empowerment, or if it is time for me review my boundaries. It would benefit me to quietly review my relationships with family, friends, and clients to determine if I am coming from a place of empowerment. Then it would be a good exercise to write down what, if anything, needs to change.

I invite you to pull a card and, if you have a question, to send me an email. I’ll try to clarify it for you.
