When you perform a tarot reading, do you light incense and arrange sacred gems? Do you wear a turban as low-volume sitar music plays and spread your deck out on a majestic, hand-painted sari? While you do not want to be over-the-top, setting the mood for your reading will make it more powerful and meaningful for everyone involved. Of course it is important to study each card’s meaning, but here are some hands-on steps you can take right now to bring out the magic of tarot in your readings.
First off, the beginning of your tarot reading sets the mood for the rest of the experience. People say first impressions matter, and they do. Ancient Egyptian magic rituals often began with ceremonies summoning muses or powerful creatures then channeling that strength into the magic feat they hoped to perform.
In your tarot reading, begin with a simple ritual such as reading a few lines of an enigmatic poem aloud. If you are performing the reading for someone else – let us call this person the listener – you might gently hold hands. You might also ring a bell or hold a moment of silence. This gives you an air of mystery and sets a serious tone for the reading which makes you trustworthy.
Next, if you are doing the reading for a listener, get them involved. You can ask the listener to shuffle the tarot deck for you, funneling energy into the cards. This makes the listener personally invested and more willing to share personal information later on. If you are performing the reading on yourself, lay out some intimate objects of yours such as a photo of a loved one, diary, or item of clothing.
At this point, ask the listener to think of three questions or wishes, to tell you two of them, and keep one private. Questions keep readings focused, and if you run out of things to talk about, you can always ask the listener to reveal the third question. It also helps you put an interesting spin on each card pulled and personalizes the reading.
Often people want the medium to do all the work, but this is a mistake. Do not be afraid to ask the listener to expand on personal issues in a gentle manner to help you unfurl an accurate and more detailed reading. Just as a doctor inquires about a patient, a medium gains important information by being sensitive to the listener’s needs and state of being, as well as any thoughts on the listener’s mind that could be important to address.
As you reach the end of your reading, treat the closing with just as much importance as you did the opening. Vulnerable energy surfaces during divinations, and if it is not channeled in a careful manner, it could cause disturbances to either party involved. To close the reading, transform negativity and anxiety that may have arisen into positivity. Successful methods include bowing, blowing out candles, silent reflection, or even something as simple as a hug can do wonders!
What makes you angry? People react differently when they are angry. Some scream and shout to express their anger. Some bottle up their anger inside like a simmering volcano which can erupt anytime. Some distance themselves in order to avoid confrontation. Some don’t express or show their anger but become sad/ depressed instead.
