One of the most highly regarded mediums in the world, John Edward first became aware of his psychic abilities as a young man. In an interview with the Detroit Free Press, John Edward explains that psychic ability can be strengthened by having a better understanding of energy and symbols associated with metaphysical tools such as tarot cards.
After being used for centuries as playing cards, tarot cards were infused with symbolic meaning through the work of mystic A.E. Waite, co-creator of the Rider-Waite deck. Through the use of universal symbols, the tarot are believed to provide insight into a person’s current or future circumstances. The following symbols hold significant meaning in the tarot:
Water: When bodies of water appear on a card, they represent unconscious drives and emotions. Moving water, such as waterfalls or rain, reflect dynamic and out-of-control feelings. Calm pools of water usually indicate relaxation and inner peace.
Flowers: Plants appear in many tarot cards, including the Six of Cups and the Queen of Wands. Besides standing as a symbol of hope and beauty, flowers offer additional meanings associated with their variety. For example, the sunflowers encourage looking at the positive side of a situation.
Fish: Fish appear on all of the face cards in the suit of Cups. This is because cups, water, and fish are all related to emotional concepts such as vulnerability, love, and intuition.
