Tarot Traveller: How to Use Tarot Cards to Plan Your Next Adventure

Tarot cards can teach us so much about ourselves and the world around us, making them the perfect tool to use while travelling. Whether you’re trying to plan where to travel, when to travel, or if indeed you should actually travel, a tarot reading can reveal a lot.

Because of the knowledge tarot cards can bring us, they should be in your suitcase wherever you travel to. The best reasons to travel are to expand your knowledge of the world, learn more about yourself, and escape from your comfort zone, which fits perfectly with tarot readings.

Read on to learn about how you can use tarot cards to plan your next travel adventure.

Plan Your Question

Tarot readings can help us gain a deeper understanding of our situations and give us insight into all aspects of life, including travel. As with any tarot card reading, you need to know what question you want the tarot cards to try and answer.

Picture this: you’re about to embark on your next adventure abroad, but you’ve been in a weird place in life lately. Maybe you’re at a crossroads and need something to push you to make a big decision. How will this trip positively or negatively impact your emotions? Will it have a spiritual or physical effect on you?

Questions like these will help your tarot reading become clearer and you will learn more from the experience. In turn, it can help you prepare and open up to anything that may manifest as a result of this trip.

Understanding the Cards

When you know what you want to ask, it’s time to start the reading. But pulling the cards alone means nothing when you don’t understand what they mean. They all have multi-layered meanings, but there are some cards that have more significance when it comes to travel.

A few of these include:

The Chariot

The Chariot is one of the biggest symbols of travel you can find in a tarot deck. This card features a chariot rider with two horses pulling forward with energy and confidence. It indicates a trip abroad and signifies overcoming obstacles and controlling your emotions.

The Fool

The fool is a lively and energetic card that signifies adventure and exploring unknown places. This signifies that you will go on a new journey you’ve never been on before – whether it be physically or emotionally – and marks new beginnings.

Six of Swords

This card depicts a boatman ferrying across a lake, and it can signify travel via the sea or even to a cold country/climate.  It can also be a signal of emotional baggage that you may be carrying with you, so you may need to find a way to process it and let go of it while you travel.

Eight of Wands

The Eight of Wands depicts eight wands flying through the air which often signifies air travel, but it can also be the sign of an unexpected trip somewhere. It is often interpreted as a sign of a swift and safe journey, but if it is reversed it could mean you may experience delays.

Eight of Cups

The Eight of Cups card depict leaving on an adventure to pastures new and it’s a classic travel tarot card. But it can also signal a lot more – it can signify the emotional investments you will be leaving behind as you embark on your journey, and this trip may have a significant impact on this.

Using Tarot As a Guide

Tarot cards don’t tell you the future. They can’t tell you what experiences you will have, what the weather will be like, if the country is safe etc. But they are a fantastic way to seek answers for questions you may have about your upcoming journey.

When it comes to using tarot for travel, look at it as a tool. It is a tool that can help make your trip more introspective and encourage positive growth in your life.
