In a game such as the Tarot, the natural process of synchronicity is given free play. The randomizing of the cards initiates the process, as you clear your mind of all preconceptions or wishes. Then as you deal the cards, you find that the cards seem to reflect an inner voice. The relationship of the cards to each other and their positions in the spread are all meaningful, and are interpreted according to knowledge and beliefs that you already have. When you put this together with the question you asked, the information becomes even more personalized, and intimately meaningful. Perhaps the Tarot should be called the “synchronicity game,” a device that allows the Higher Self to use the magic of synchronicity to speak to you in a language of images and words.
One of Jung’s favorite quotes on synchronicity was from Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll:
“Living backwards!” Alice repeated in great astonishment. “I never heard of such a thing!”
“But there’s one great advantage in it, that one’s memory works both ways.”
“I’m sure MINE only works one way,” Alice remarked. “I can’t remember things before they happen.”
“It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards,” the Queen remarked.
The Queen is implying that memory can work backwards as well as forwards because memory is a form of consciousness. This is another way to say that consciousness transcends time and space, or rather, that consciousness is not subject to the rules of matter, or general physics (the movie, Interstellar, explores this concept).
