In this competitive world, most of us find ourselves caught between complex and challenging situations at home, work, finances and relationships. That feeling of not being able to sleep or concentrate or need for inner peace is what some of us may face at different points in our life. But how we deal with these challenges makes all the difference.
Tarot cards have been used for centuries to help people find direction in times of uncertainty. Today, there are many people who do not know what tarot truly means or at worse, are fearful of it. Tarot is simply a tool for healing, one that gives you guidance for any situation in your life.
Tarot card reading is an effective modality of guiding you through your current situation – be it work, relationships or finances. A helpful and worthy reading comes from an innate ability of the card reader to understand, identify and focus on the issues at hand, and is a combination of intuition, skill and knowledge of the card reader. For the past hundreds of years, it has been one of the most important median for self-development, self-realization, self-understanding and for making choices about the future. The tarot guides you, makes you draw on your intuitive senses “to know” what it is you really want in your life and to act upon that knowledge – it mirrors your emotions, feelings, soul and well-being. It is not a science, but mysticism (secretive universal knowledge).
The person asking questions of the tarot reader/seeker should steer clear of questions with yes or no answers and let the cards guide the way – to what is happening or may happen if they continue to pursue a path. The sessions can be intense and emotional, and help in guiding you to the right path. If you ask the right questions, the tarot can show you how to change your path to get the results you want. Many people who have had a tarot reading are blown away by the accuracy and sound advice they receive from the reading. A good tarot reader will be able to read the cards and explain in a way that makes sense to you.
The tarot deck is made up of 78 tarot cards, each with its own unique meaning. The cards are read in combination with the spread used by the tarot reader, and each may have many different meanings. The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards that reflect key archetypes or spiritual lessons in our lives. The Minor Arcana consists for four suits – Cups, Pentacles, Swords, and Wands.
There are many types of tarot decks/cards that exist today – each help with clarity on issues put through by the seeker. Tarot readings can help us with the following:
• Understanding the issue/situation/event
• Identifying the problem
• Advice for moving forward
• Making a decision
In a true sense, tarot readings empower the person who will at the end of the session, choose a path for himself in his current situation.
