Making Friends with Technology

Techonology is like The Devil card in the Tarot: it can bust your chops or you can find ways to become empowered through wrestling with it. I’m choosing the later, although as some of you can relate, there are some days that I just want to throw the whole system right out the second-story window…make that the third story.

Once the hissy-fit passes, it becomes clear that technology is a great boon for the world of Tarot:

  • It connects us to seekers beyond one’s local area
  • Connections that used to take days or weeks by mail or telephone now can happen in a matter of moments
  • Skype and other formats allow us to have face-to-face live conversations regardless of time and place
  •  The internet enables those interested in learning Tarot a wide variety of options such as YouTube, online Tarot classrooms, chatrooms and groups, etc.
  • Book sellers — and authors — have unprecidented access to a world of customers interested in the metaphysical and the spiritual

So the “pros outweigh the “cons,” and I’m embracing the blessings of technology with gusto as I begin this blog. There will be musings on the Tarot, observations about life, Tarot-related educational opportunities, sharing of experiences from the Tarot Table, and who knows what else.

I hope you’ll join me on the adventure!

    Great post, Jeanne. Is there a way I can subscribe to your blog, or would I get updates via Facebook or what? Ha, ha, I guess that’s a technology question.
