Intuition and the Tarot

Tarot Reading


We all have a certain degree of what is called intuition. This may or may not include being psychic as well. Intuition is our innate ability to sense things in the world around us. It is our instinctive or unconscious knowing that has nothing to do with our cognitive abilities of reason and logic. Intuition is a gut instinct that we feel regardless of what we are logically supposed to feel or not based on a specific situation. It lets us know when there is danger or what kind of people are around us. It is our innate inner sense we have that switches on for certain situations we may deal with when logic isn’t the way to assess it. For example, a person may appear to be nice but our intuition may sense otherwise. So, in that case it is wise to keep on guard until the person proves if they are really nice or not. It may be that the person even seems nice but something isn’t quite right with them; so our gut tells us to be on guard that something is wrong. That is intuition. It’s that feeling we get in situations where our logic isn’t able to address or assess a situation and the feeling is telling us what’s happening.


Being psychic is the apparent sensitivity to things beyond what is accepted as the normal range of perception. It can take many forms. Hollywood and the media always make it appear as some extra ordinary ability to bend objects and move concrete material with our minds. Although these phenomena do happen and people are gifted with that ability; not every psychic can do that. Some people have the gift to hear things, some see things, some can channel in the spiritual realm. All these I mentioned and other things too are associated with being psychic. Just like intuition; a person who is considered psychic has the ability to innately sense things. Not all psychics execute their psychic abilities the same way.  For instance, some psychics possess such abilities as clairvoyance (to hear things spiritually) and others may be telepathic (able to read or hear what a person is thinking or saying non verbally). Others may have paranormal aptitudes (for example; able to bend objects or move them with their minds) or supernatural inclinations (for example: to see and feel beyond the normal range of logic by communicating with spirits). One can have intuition and not be psychic and one can be both psychic and an intuitive.
