Here's What pathways and roads symbolize in Tarot
Pathways and roads in Tarot imagery may indicate a real-world trip or a journey, but often suggest a more internal or metaphysical voyage of some kind. In the second case, paths may reference a passage from one state of being to another, or from one emotion to another.
a more internal or metaphysical voyage of some kind
Paths and roads remind us that the Tarot, much like life itself, is a journey.
Our progress through life's journey, and through the story of the Tarot, is intellectual, physical, spiritual and emotional. All journeys, both physical and metaphysical start with just one step — and all things exist in a state of change and movement.
The interpretation of the specific beginning-state and final destination of each road in the Tarot, depends on the specific card at hand.
