Five Reasons why Tarot Journaling is a fantastic thing to integrate into your practice

Writing itself is therapeutic: Regardless of the mood you are in, using writing in unity with the physical act of shuffling and drawing from the cards is a fantastic way to combine the physical and the mental together for a holistic and therapeutic approach. Rather than keep it all in your head, you get those thoughts down onto paper and can better work with them. Especially when there is a lot of information to digest or you are looking for the connections.

It promotes Connection to the Subconscious: By keeping a regular journal or coming back to a regular space to work with you are training your brain to associate the Tarot with connecting to yourself and your subconscious mind, as a correspondence you could also use this alongside dream interpretation too, as they work of the same principle of using symbols, and Archetypal motifs that are universal and readily available to tap into.

It allows you to keep a document: Of how you are learning, what you are learning and ways to further the way you see Tarot. It helps to see what is working and what is not in your practice and is a place to invite expansion and experimentation since your Journal is a place just for you

You can use it to reference: The Tarot journal is also a unique 
 representation of your practice at any given point in time which makes it a fantastic place of reference when it comes to study, Shadow work or guiding your future self, clients, students or fellow Tarot lovers.

It is versatile: You can change it up any time, alongside your practice.
 You can always go back to the drawing board, use it to draw, write, paint or bullet journal. You can use it daily or monthly and it will not judge you. It is an ally in your exploration of the Tarot and a reminder that you are not alone and that you will always have a place to jot down notes, write reams of observation and reflection and have a direct conversation with the cards, which in turns will connect you to the universal Divine.
