Sometimes the answer it is right in front of us, but we still can not see it. All the answers are within us; we only have to close our eyes and search for them deep inside, beneath the surface. From my experience, people reach out to fortune tellers to avoid making decisions and taking responsibilities. Nobody will make the right calls instead of us, nobody will make the heavy lifting instead of us, and generally, there is no easy way out or free ride through life. However, Tarot cards can help us take the best possible decisions and make some educated guesses.
The Pathfinder is a good seven card Tarot spread for looking at the way things are heading in the inquirer’s life or regarding a particular issue. It shows the current trends, the influences and it gives helpful insights and on what the inquirer can do to improve and what pitfalls there are to avoid. The Tarot is a sophisticated instrument of self-improvement, it will not take decisions instead of us, but can help us make decisions easier.
