In 1980, The Alan Parsons Project released an album with the title song, “The Turn of A Friendly Card.” The Alan Parsons / Eric Woolfson lyric said, in part,

“There are unsmiling faces in fetters and chains
On a wheel in perpetual motion
Who belong to all races and answer all names
With no show of an outward emotion
And they think it will make their lives easier
But the doorway before them is barred
And the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card”

The song may have referred to gambling and also the eternal “cards” we are dealt when we enter this existence. What is truly “in the cards” for each of us. Can the art of reading the Tarot give us the insight, guidance and direction necessary to make changes and improve our lives?
