I don't think it's overcomplicated. I think you can pick and choose what you want to learn, what you want to use when reading (which are not the same things at all, or don't have to be). The very fact that we CAN plug so many things into tarot and have it fit and make sense shows how universal in scope the tarot really is. Actually, there's probably a lot more in there than we've even uncovered so far. Because there's a lot more to reality, the human experience and our spirits that we've yet to uncover.

Personally, I've never been able to use the 'JUST. READ. THE CARD.' method. I can riff on the established meanings of the cards, but when I opened my first deck, I had no clue what any of them meant. I could say, 'Wow, he looks furtive,' or 'Oh, they're sailing to another shore,' or whatever, but that wasn't enough for me. I wanted to know more. I still want to know more. I will always want to know more.
