When we think of the tarot or other oracles, we usually think of them as providing insight and information about what is going on in our external world-the world of action and reaction. But these same symbols can act as communication between many realms-inner, outer, spirit, faery, angelic, and "dreamtime" (the realm of myth and potential where the unmanifest is real).
We can use the cards to help us to interpret an inner journey or a dream-and we can use a dream or an inner journey to help us interpret a card reading. Both ways work and both ways enrich our insight into our personal symbolism. Let's consider some of the ways we can cross-fertilize our understanding of these symbols as they appear in the cards, in the world, and in our inner worlds.
