There will likely come a time in your life when you’ll want to seek the insights of a professional tarot reader. After all, men and women around the world have consulted the tarot cards for hundreds of years (in some cases and forms, thousands!).
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.
Tarot is considered a beautiful tool of Fortune Telling. But I consider tarot as an excellent tool for seeking guidance. Tarot is a picture of a probable outcome based on the energy surrounding the querent as well as the energy the tarot reader is creating with his/her thoughts and actions. There is no one answer and the tarot is not a fortune nor is it written in stone; it is a tool to assist the querent with making his own choices. The Tarot reading is designed to give the querent information on what area/thoughts/actions are being suggested at this time.
Tarot can also be used for gaining remarkable and valuable insights into any situation or problem. The situation or the turmoil may be confusing or complex but the Tarot always indicates a solution or brings forth the lesson to learn from that situation. No wonder, People rely on and consult while facing life’s challenging and perplexing issues – and that includes love, romance and relationships.
I have always been fascinated by Tarot cards. Finally I decided to take a plunge and learn Tarot cards. I did a little research about the various Tarot decks available and ordered my first deck online. It was Riders- Waite Deck. Using this deck which is considered the best for beginners, I started learning about the meanings of the cards from the online resources available. After a while, I enrolled for a six-months long professional course to have a thorough understanding of Tarot cards and spreads.
I have found Tarot cards to be an excellent tool to gain meaningful insights into your life. They give you a clear picture of unseen influences & obstacles and gives you a snapshot of your life at the moment. Most of the people think of Tarot as a fortune telling tool. But I would say that Tarot is a guidance tool which suggests actions to take in a given situation and the likely outcomes.
When you learn how to read Tarot, then it’s quite natural that you will want to read the Tarot Cards for yourself. At a moment of some personal crisis or just for seeking guidance, you may want to turn to Tarot for help. Since you know how to read Tarot and you are aware of the power the Tarot has in providing guidance and insights, you will want to seek their help.
So can you read Tarot for yourself? Of course, you can! In fact, this is how most of the Tarot readers practice initially and get better at their readings.But reading for practice is one thing and doing personal Tarot reading for getting answer to some serious question is an altogether different thing.
