Always the same question, “How do Tarot cards work?” The young lady in front of me quizzical, skeptical & a little on edge. My answer, always the same, “Tarot has no inherent power, they are just 78 painted pasteboards. The ‘power’ comes from the age old wisdom contained in the symbols, combined with my skill as a reader & how the rapport develops between us to uncover some truths about you, your life, and maybe how various possible timelines could manifest for you. Are you ready to put your trust in me, the cards & most importantly yourself, to go for a dance through the Tarot?”
Put Your Trust in a Tarot reading: How to get the best reading
Many people conjure up a very stereotypical image when they picture a tarot card reading. It usually has something to do with a long-haired “gypsy” woman flipping tarot cards one at a time while she tells you about dark haired strangers on far flung shores. This image is what causes many people to discredit tarot card readings entirely. Let me tell you a secret: true Tarot card readings are nothing like the images in your head or the readings in the movies. There is no woman in flowing clothes predicting your impending doom. Instead, a tarot card reading involves a trained and gifted intuitive using Tarot cards to give you insight about your life & possible direction.
There are two types of Tarot card readings: question readings and open readings. Open readings give information about broad areas of your life, while question readings address address a specific question. Neither type of reading is designed to give you step by step instructions on how to live your life; rather, they exist to guide you in your decision-making process. Regardless of the type of reading you choose, there are certain ways to guarantee a trusted Tarot reading. One of these ways is to use a Tarot spread.
There are several different methods that a Tarot card reader can use when giving a reading. One of the methods is called a Tarot spread. A Tarot spread involves the reader laying out a series of tarot cards in a predetermined pattern and interpreting each card’s meaning in regards to your current situation. There are myriad different spreads that a Tarot card reader can use – it all depends on what information you are seeking. For example, if you’d like to learn more about your past, present or future relationship(s), you can use a relationship Tarot spread; if you’d like to learn more about your spiritual self, you might use a mandala Tarot spread; if you’d like to learn the meaning behind a specific or recurring dream, you could use a dream exploration spread. In short, different spreads answer different questions and the spread used by your Tarot card reader will have a direct impact on the information you receive.
Even the most skeptical people can enjoy a trusted Tarot reading. Many people enter a Tarot reading with a skeptical demeanor and leave with an entirely different world-view. Out of the many ways to receive a trusted Tarot reading– using a reputable reader, having an open mind, being receptive to the information- using a tarot spread is one of the most effective. I offer several different spreads, all which cater to different areas you may want insight on such as Birthday, Tree of life, Planetary and Celtic cross.
