Osho Zen Tarot
Obviously you can ask the tarot what you like, although it is in fact a vehicle for exposing what you already know. Any card drawn in response to an issue is a direct reflection of what you are sometimes unable or unwilling to recognize at this time. And yet it is only through recognition (without judging as right or wrong) from a detached perspec-tive that you can begin to fully experience your height and depth — all the colors of our rainbow being.

Remember to stay in the as you turn the cards over, allowing your inner responses to clarify your outer issues.

As you will experience, the images of the Osho Zen Tarot are alive. Their impact is undeniable, for they speak to us in a language that our deeper selves recognize. They awaken understanding. They provoke clarity.

Be as silent and focused as possible when you are using this deck. The more you are able to perceive the process as a gift for your individual growth, the more meaningful the messages will be for you.

The Flying Bird

The Flying BirdThis layout is designed in the shape of a bird taking flight. The cards chosen and placed in the left wing symbolize and indicate to us something about our feminine, receptive energies in the moment, while the right wing symbolizes our male, active energies. The first card picked is the initiator of the flight, hence stems from the masculine side. Each succeeding card responds to the previous one and lifts the ′bird′ higher, allowing the questioner to move into greater clarity and inner spaciousness.

The Key
