Coincidences alert us to the mysterious hiding in plain sight, to the invisible that makes the visible possible. Life purpose, romance, or jobs may be diagrammed through a conspiracy of the improbable.

EP 219, Ken James: Tarot, Psychological Change & Synchronicity

https://youtu.be/q2lPYNTfVdQ

Psychotherapy through synchronicity? Yes! Both within and beyond of the therapeutic relationship, meaningful coincidences accelerate change.

The mystery and usefulness of the “domesticated” coincidences of Tarot cards become another way to accelerate change. Tarot cards also hold up a mirror of the present, perhaps by visually capturing the movement of time through our space.
