You are probably thinking about getting a tarot reading; however, you are not quite sure about what to expect from it and how it could benefit you. The following are some of the things to consider when getting a professional tarot reading.
What the Reading Can Do for You
The kinds of readings some tarot card readers do are not only concerned with giving predictions to what is going to take place over the next few weeks or years. While they can perform such type of reading, this may not be a productive use of the tarot.
Instead of trying to tell you what’s going to happen to you, tarot card readings may tell you what is currently happening. This can highlight the life aspects you are unlikely to be completely aware of like the influences acting on you, the conscious and subconscious control you exert and how such factors are likely to manifest in the future.
The Tarot is a great way to gain a new perspective of your life or on a certain situation. This can shed fresh light on old emotional issues, suggests portion of your neglected personality or life and negative aspects of your relationship as well s help you in making more insightful, balanced decision. It is an excellent analysis instrument to get a clear and detached view of what’s happening now and where you are heading.
Why Not Fortune Telling?
Some tarot reading is not fortune telling, though this is one of the things typically related to the use of the tarot. Although tying to predict the future for somebody is quite interesting, some tarot readers are not sure how valuable it is.
Fortune telling seems to work by considering the influences acting on an individual at a given situation and extrapolating from the m the course of events over the coming months. Some tarot card readers object to fortune telling based on a philosophical reason. They think that many people are attracted to this prediction as they wish the reassurance which comes from knowing things are going to work just fine. However, being told what’s going to take place should reduce an individual’s sense of control over his life and can encourage him to abdicate responsibility for the occurrences in his life.
What Takes Place at a Tarot Reading?
Basically, a tarot reading is a simple process. A tarot deck composed of 78 cards, each of which with a particular meaning associated with it. To perform the reading, cards need to be shuffled and laid out in a certain pattern. Each spread or place in the pattern represents various idea or concept. While there are many conventional spreads, new spreads can be made up. But you can choose to embrace the old ones.
In general, the reading starts with the reader talking about what he is going to do and the help he can think he can be. Then the reader will ask you to provide a general impression of the type of thing you wish to have from the spread. You will then be asked to shuffle the cards before the reader lays out a spread of cards on the table placed between you two.
The tarot card reader will look at the cards that have turned up, the positions of these cards in relation to each other and how they are placed in the spread. The reader will be able to talk to you about various aspects of your life and present feelings on the world.
