How to Perform a Powerful Tarot Reading

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post by Charmaine Frapp. Known as Chimmi, Chazzi, Mai-mai, or just Charmaine, Charmaine Frapp is a fourth generation tarot reader and astrologer. She reads tarot online and writes a horoscope on her website, Tell My Tarot.

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!

10 Best Tarot Cards to appear in a Love Reading

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.

Top Ten Tarot Cards for Infidelity

When someone asked me a question about infidelity of the partner in a Tarot reading for the first time, I was a little shocked. But such doubts are common in a relationship and more than often, you will be asked such questions in Tarot readings.

Infidelity is something which wrecks a relationship. Even worse is the doubt and uncertainty that comes along with it. Though we can see the signs and sense if our partner is cheating on us, still a small flickering hope in our heart wants to believe that it’s all a lie.

Is my husband/wife loyal to me? Is my partner cheating on me? Is he true to me or am I being taken for a ride? Sadly, these are common questions in a Tarot reading.

Relationships are tricky and so are relationship related questions. Whether my partner is unfaithful or untrustworthy, Tarot Cards may give a clue about that.

So, here are my top 10 Tarot cards for infidelity:

Ten of Swords

The image on the card says it all. You have been back-stabbed and left to bleed and die. Ten of Swords is the card to appear in your Tarot reading if you have been victimized, betrayed or back-stabbed. Your partner has betrayed you and this has caused you deep emotional pain. The relationship is dead but there is a silver lining in the card. This emotional pain will eventually subside giving way to someone new in your life.

Seven of Swords

Seven of Swords scream ‘deceit’. When Seven of Swords come in the Tarot reading, then something fishy is going behind your back. You may be dealing with a cheating partner who thinks that he is successfully getting away with it. He is not only a cheater but also a liar and a thief who may not only cause you emotional pain with his infidelity but can also take away your money and self-respect.


Devil is the card of temptation. Your partner might be cheating on you for short term pleasure and sexual gratification. Your partner might be a serial cheater just out of his addiction for sex and the thrill of excitement with variable partners. Satisfying his lust is what matters to him. You are dealing with a partner with unbridled lust and fiery temper.

Three of Swords

He has stabbed your heart and killed the love with his infidelity. Appearance of Three of Swords in a Tarot reading indicate heartbreak and deep hurt on all levels- spiritual, mental and physical.

The Tower

Your partner is cheating but he might get caught and a scandal may follow leaving your relationship in ruins. The tower signifies the end of your marriage or love affair as the very foundations of your relationship have been shaken. You have lost trust in others due to this betrayal. It’s time now to rebuild your life and trust in others.

Eight of Cups

Look at the image in the card – A man trying to steal away in the dead of night to avoid any attention. Not only your partner is cheating on you but he/she is also planning to dump you and do a vanishing act in order to avoid confrontation.

Three of Cups reversed

There is a third person in the relationship who is a threat to the harmony and peace of the couple. You may not be aware now that your partner is having an affair but you will come to know of it in time.

Eight of Swords

Eight of Swords indicate cheating. You are kept blind-folded in the dark and are unaware of what is happening. You feel stuck and oppressed in your relationship but see no way out of it.

Moon reversed

There are some hidden secrets which are yet to be revealed. The reversed Moon card indicates that things are not as they seem. You are not aware of some deep secrets which your partner is keeping from you. Act with caution.

Nine of Swords

Your partner is making excuses like working late to stay away from home. You are having sleepless nights wondering about why is he not spending time at home. He is cheating on you.

Top Ten Tarot Cards for Finances

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.
