What Are the Chakras?
Before we look at the Tarot and chakra correspondences, it might be a good idea to define what chakras are. The chakras are the main etheric energy centres of the body. There are seven of these energy centres along the spine. The chakras act as the etheric interface between our emotions, sense perceptions and the electrical impulses of the body. Their function is to control the flow of subtle energy (chi/prana) through the body.
We can influence the functioning of the chakras through several means, including the food we eat, physical exercise, spending time in the sun, breathwork, meditation, sound healing, mantra chanting, prayer, yoga and various forms of vibrational medicine, including the Tarot.
The Tarot as Medicine
Each Arcanum (arcanum is Latin for secret) is a mind-body-spirit glyph that holds a key for healing. In the in-depth Angelic Tarot Major Arcana card meaning posts I have created, you will find healing uses and remedies for each of the Majors as well as their corresponding Minor Arcana cards. Click the link for each card you would like to learn more about below. The healing meanings for the cards can be used to, among other things, interpret the Healing Key Tarot Spread.
For health and wellness readings in general, as well as for connecting the dots between Tarot and Astrology, you may find these anatomical and physiological Tarot & Astrology correspondences handy.
You can also learn how to do a chakra meditation with the cards HERE.
Additionally, each of the keys can be used to create a Tarot essence, much in the same way you would create a crystal or flower essence. Learn how HERE.

My Own Tarot Healing Journey
When I first started blogging about the Tarot back in 2006, my great obsession was harnessing the healing power of the Tarot. This is what my first Tarot blog tarotize.com was almost exclusively about. As I mature and keep going deeper into the potential of the cards, I find myself returning to my first love of Tarot Healing. I’m going to continue to allow the angels to guide me down this path. While I do not know where I will end up, I look forward to the rest of the journey and all the healing discoveries it will bring.
