Carl Jung speculated that the Tarot works according to the principle of ‘synchronicity’- that psychic insights are triggered by apparently random and yet meaningful co-incidence, which he thought might be explained by Quantum Mechanics.

In a recent reading, the focus was the client’s job, and I drew the King of Pentacles or Coins.
The image below is from The Gilded Tarot by kind permission of Ciro Marchetti.
This Tarot ‘king’ represents a man who is patient, practical, kind, industrious. He is the salt of the earth. I said to the client that I thought he was a manager, and the work was practical in nature but also involved communication.
I could see that this job demanded utmost precision or the ‘thing’ wouldn’t work but I didn’t ‘see’ as yet see what his job might actually be.
‘I might get at it though,’ I said, ‘now that my computer is talking directly to your computer.’
What I meant by that was, I felt we were on the same wavelength.
‘But that IS my job! I work for the government. That’s what I do…I make computers talk to other computers.’
Now that is typical of the Tarot.
Until next time 🙂

A lucky guess often is nothing more (or less) than synchronicity at work. Maybe the word “luck” itself is just another word for “synchronicity”. the tarot simply reflects that. thank you for sharing this wonderful story!
