In the past, we have looked at how to use your daily Tarot draw to set the intention for the day ahead. Today, I thought we would look at the 22 ‘core intentions’ that are built into the Major Arcana. You can choose to focus on just one, a combination of a few, or make setting all 22 (sic!) part of your daily morning routine.
Setting an intention is like lighting a candle. It keeps burning throughout the day, as you get on with your work. There are no limit to how many intentions you can set, as long as you are able to remain mindful of them. The beauty with doing Tarot Healing work on a daily basis is that it is quite easy to remain mindful of the influence of the Majors.
Seeing one or more of the Major Arcana Tarot cards, as you go about your day doing readings for yourself as well as others, reaffirms the intent and acts as a powerful signal to your subconscious mind because the language of the subconscious mind is symbolic.
For each of the cards below, I have given two different intentions. Feel free to go with the one that resonates the most in the moment!
