What is Tarot? 


In the late 18th century, tarot decks began to be used for divination and cartomancy. They are meant to explore your higher intuition with the wisdom of the universal energy that guides your life. Tarot may be used by either you or an experienced reader to tap into truths and hidden feelings regarding information of the past, present, and future. Once these intuition energy forces surface, it is believed you can then use any information felt from the reading to make decisions about careers, love, money, and health.  

How do you use them?

Tarot cards are shuffled and laid out in what is called a "Tarot spread." Most popular and best known for its simplicity is the Celtic Cross Spread, however, there are nearly endless options depending on the questions and answers you require. 

If you would prefer to start out with a simple card draw, you may. Pick one card and either think about the situation, person, or question it is regarding. This is called an "open reading." Once you shuffle, provide conscious thought or a moment of meditation or pray, pick your cards, and you will find the insight you need. 
Depending on the type of "Tarot Spread" you have chosen, each card may hold a specific meaning of either past, present, or future. 

"Once you've determined your Tarot spread, it's customary to shuffle all cards in the Tarot deck and cut the cards as many times as you like while thinking about your question. This allows your energy to interact with the energy of the cards to achieve the best results. It also helps if you do your reading in a peaceful and relaxed environment." {Tarot.com}

When you feel the shuffle is complete, speak your question or thought out loud, then pull your first card from anywhere in the deck. Place your first card upright in the first position. Continue doing this until all drawn cards are in their correct position. 

Tarot beginners will likely need to refer to Tarot.com or to a Tarot reference book to find the meaning of each card in their spread. Each card will have unique illustrations that may have personal meaning for you.

 

 

"The Fool card, for example. This card features a happy young man gazing into the distance. He's about to step off a cliff into the unknown as the Sun rises behind him, and he has a small knapsack of supplies. Now think about how this literal description of The Fool might be translated into an insightful message. The classic interpretation is that of a person at the beginning of something new -- perhaps a new relationship or a life-changing adventure -- and they should be feeling positive about it because they have everything they need to succeed." {Tarot.com]

 

It's your turn! Here's it broken down. 

  1. Begin by shuffling the deck, speak your intention, questions or thoughts aloud while shuffling. You should have chosen your spread prior to shuffling.
  2. Draw your cards and place them in the proper positions. Please note that some spreads will have you place the card "exactly" as drawn. For instance, if you drew an upside-down "3 of Cups," you would then leave it in this position and place it into the appropriate space. Sometimes we will shuffle the deck and one specific card comes flying out of the deck and either landing on the floor or even in our laps. Many readers will have this in an upright position and place the card immediately on the table for a change-up in the reading, emphasis on the card, or immediate placement of the position needed at that moment.
  3. Research using any search engine. Search several sites, take notes, and study the image of each card and the feelings you have while doing so. You'll see! It's pretty amazing!
