This blog is an introduction to Tarot Card Reading for beginners
The Tarot is a pack of 78 cards that is used as a Tool of Divination. Essentially the Tarot cards are used to create clear communication between the Reader, the higher self and Spirit. This connection is established using any number of different spreads or layouts used in Tarot Readings. The most Common tarot spreads used in readings include the Celtic Cross, Single Card, and Simple spread. To most people it would seem that the Tarot Reader is a ‘fortune teller’. However, most Tarot Card practitioners will tell you that the cards offer a connection to Spirit and the Source, providing a means to identify the energies presently at work in your life and offer a guide to the probable outcome based in the present or now.
How Do Tarot Cards Work?
- Question readings: helps you find answers or solutions to a specific question. Although these readings do not give you a precise yes/no answers, they help you open up, stay neutral and seek within for answers.
- Open readings: these address larger aspects of life like marriage, careers and health among others.
An experienced Tarot Reader will tell you that a well-developed intuitive process is an essential tool for the successful practice and interpretation of the cards. They may also tell you of the marked increase in intuitive and metaphysical abilities enhanced by the daily use of their craft. Just one of the many tools of divination, the use of Tarot cards provides the ‘portal’ or contact point for the Readers’ inherent Psychic and Metaphysical talents.
Becoming a skilled practitioner of Tarot is a craft that combines study and practice with intuition, compassion and a genuine connection to the Source. A Tarot Reader will assist you in the asking of appropriate questions and interpret the meanings presented by cards. The person seeking guidance shuffles the cards while concentrating on the question at hand. The person then spreads out the cards and awaits interpretation from the reader. When providing a Tarot reading over the ‘phone’ a number of factors comes in to play. While having the client focus on the question at hand, the Reader connects with their Cards and provides a spread, while simultaneously forging an intuitive connection with the client and Spirit.
