Whenever you think of tarot cards, you may often associate them with paganism. And it is quite understandable because pagans and witches often use them for divination as well as for other purposes. This is why you may assume that tarot cards are pagan if you are not comfortable with the idea of divination. However, here are the facts.
Tarot cards are not meant to be associated with any religion, which includes paganism. They are used by those who practice the earth religion often because it is a tool that they rely on. It is the same way that those who follow Abrahamic religions use tools such as goblets during certain holidays. But as you know, goblets are not Jewish, Christian, or Muslim. They are a tool, just like tarot cards are.
The other reason that many people, especially those who follow Abrahamic religions believe that tarot is pagan is due to the fact that some are uncomfortable with the tool. They are uncomfortable with divination and also associate the fact that those who follow paganism practice divination. Therefore, it is understandable for them to assume that.
But here is the fact. Tarot cards can be used by anyone. It does not matter what religion you or anyone else practices. Even if you are not comfortable with the idea of divination, you would be happy to know that tarot cards are used for other things. You can use tarot cards to help you gain some insight into a particular thing you are dealing with. That does involve use using intuition but not for foretelling the future.
For instance, this is what you can do. You have a friend who you sense has not been honest with you. You want to know how to handle them. You want to know what to say to them. You pick up a random card for insight, and you pick The High Priestess. The High Priestess is the card that represents digging deep within and tapping into your intuition. This is the card that also represents secrets.
Therefore, the message you get from that card is to dig deep within your own intuition and go with it based on how you feel is best to handle the situation. This card may also be a confirmation that your friend is keeping a secret. If you feel the best thing to do is to confront your friend, then that is what you should do. If your intuition is telling you to keep a distance, then that is what you should do. Only you know what is best intuitively. And you can be Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, etc to do that. With that said, the answer once again is that tarot cards are not pagan.
