The Tarot is a powerful tool for gaining insight into your self and your life and has been used for thousands of years like many other techniques that are used for self-improvement. Tarot cards are also being used for predicting the future, as a game, a way to discover the unseen, or to get information about different situations.
Lots of times people think, Tarot reading means a visiting a mystical woman in strange robes, sitting over a small table in candlelit room, filled with a mystical atmosphere and predicting future.
But its nothing like it, Tarot card reading is not about all this. I believe that a tarot reading can be a journey of self discovery that is absolutely unique to each person. it is like a mirror of the moment that is presenting ‘what is here and now’, without judgment or comparison and also able to bring guidance on specific issues.
The tarot reading is like a reminder to look at your life with an open mind, receptivity and courage. It makes you aware of the truths that otherwise you may either ignore or are unwilling to acknowledge for whatever reasons. It helps you to look at every sitution with a new vision. A reading can give you an idea of where you are now at this moment in your life, what is blocking you, where you’ve come from, where you want to be, and how to get there.
So Tarot reading can bring you the guidance, suggestions and also the outcome of your actions but of course not predicting your future. Your future totally depends upon your actions of today, as cards are not going to act for you, only you have the power to ACT AND BRING THE CHANGE .So if you are acting on given suggestions and guidance, you can create your future. A tarot reading can also bring answers for your any questions, can bring spiritual guidance for your path in your life.
Types of Readings
There are actually two different types of Tarot readings: question readings and open readings.
In question readings, you are addressing a specific question. Tarot is not intended to answer specific yes or no questions. Most say it also shouldn’t be used to make decisions, but instead should be used as a guide to help you make the decision yourself. For this reason, the way a question is stated is very important.
Keep your options open: If you have the answer before the reading, then you’re not allowing the cards to guide your overall decision. Bunning gives this example:
Asking how you could encourage your mother-in-law to move out, as opposed to asking how you can get along better with her, is narrowing the scope of the true question by answering it before you even get started.
Find the best level of detail: Your question should be focused, but not overly detailed. Rather than looking at one particular aspect of a problem, find a way to look more broadly at it. For example, rather than asking how you can make your home life less chaotic, ask how you can better balance kid schedules and adult schedules. That is a focused question. But do not go so far as to ask how you can coordinate baseball, soccer and Cub Scout schedules and still have family time — that’s too detailed. Only include the minimum level of detail needed in order to express what you want to learn from the cards.
Focus on yourself: If the reading is for yourself, make sure your question focuses on you rather than on someone else who you think may be the root of your problem. For example, asking why your son is experimenting with drugs is focusing on him, not you. Asking what role you play in your son’s decision to experiment with drugs brings the focus of the question back to you.
Stay neutral: In order to stay open to other points of view, your question has to be neutral and not convey a preconceived notion that your view is necessarily the right one. The cards can give you guidance if you ask for it. For example, asking why you’re doing more work around the house than your spouse isn’t neutral; asking how you can get more cooperation from your spouse when it comes to housework is neutral.
Be positive: Make sure your question is stated in a positive rather than negative way. Instead of asking why a specific event hasn’t happened, ask what you can do to help make that event happen.
Open readings address the larger aspects of your life rather than a specific problem area or question. They’re usually done when you’re entering a new phase of life, such as getting married, graduating from college or starting a family. You can somewhat direct the reading if you have a general area you want to cover, such as your career or health, but that’s as specific as the direction gets.
