[prMac.com] New York, New York - Tina Gong, independent developer and creator of HappyPlayTime, today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of Golden Thread Tarot 1.0, an iOS app that aims to bridge the gap between the ancient occult tradition of tarot and modern tools for self-awareness and understanding. Golden Thread Tarot gives users the ability to apply digital or physical tarot cards as a mirror to self by using a data-centered approach. By logging cards and spreads, they can reveal repeating patterns of thought and common emotional reactions to what the cards tell.
Experienced readers understand that tarot is not a fortune-telling tool that reveals a fixed future, but that it is instead a window on to which the querent can project their innermost self. This is the same foundational approach that Golden Thread Tarot aims to mimic in a simple, easy to understand app.
Simple, illustrated lessons also go through some of the fundamental lessons behind tarot. A card database gives users the handy ability to reference cards from any location, without internet. And guided readings allow users to practice their ability to interpret cards, while also building their mental map.
