Tarot Card Reading
Tarot card reading is a great way to explore what life has in store for you, or maybe just what a decision you take, could lead you into. The pack of 78 cards, each with a unique and significant symbolization, gives you answers, which can be obtained by linking the symbol to ancient wisdom. You don't have to be a psychic to be able to read tarot cards. Understanding the basic science that underlies this form of divination is enough to get you started.
For beginners the Waite-Rider deck is the easiest, mainly due to its intricate but well detailed symbols, as well as the use of colors as symbols. A fancier version is the Morgan-Greer deck, which has added additional detailing to the Waite-Rider deck. The modern Tarot has been redesigned by what is known as the Order of the Golden Dawn. These cards are not just for divination purposes, but are also meant to aid magicians with spell work.
After you have decided on a Tarot deck, the next step in your tarot card reading process is the Tarot spread. To be a good Tarot card reader, you have to find out which spread works the best for you. The Celtic Cross and 12 Card are the most popular and easiest to use. While the Celtic Cross gives a sort of character sketch of the person you are reading for, the 12 Card spread gives a glimpse into the past, present and future of the person.
Reading Tarot Cards
And now comes the all important task of understanding what each card means, don't worry its not that hard. There are many books and online resources which will give you a clear picture of what each card means, but it is best to sit and study the card yourself. Since each card is full of symbols, your own personal study of the cards will yield a more long lasting understanding, than simply memorizing each cards meaning.
Whether it is an open reading or a question reading, keep your mind free of distractions while reading the cards. Tarot card reading requires you to spend time with the cards, and to understand the significance of each. If you are interested enough, you can even become a certified tarot card reader.
