Tarot 101 by Kristy

Often when I am doing a reading people will ask me, what does this card, or that card mean? It’s not really as simple as that. Tarot is a symbolic language. The cards can mean a number of different things depending on where they fall, the surrounding cards,  and, more importantly, what it represents to the reader. This is where the art of reading tarot and true “psychic” abilities comes in. 

The cards tell a story in many different ways. A good reader uses the cards in a way that allows the freedom to draw their own conclusions; like cue cards to help them “tune in” to their own divine source.  Once those channels are open the information just flows. 

A common scenario I experience in my readings is people who are fascinated by and interested in working with tarot themselves. If learning tarot is something you wish to do there are classes offered and a multitude of how to books. There are many tarot decks on the market today. For a beginner this can be very confusing. It is best to just go with what you feel drawn to and take it from there. My best advice is to find a deck and work with it. Books are helpful but working with the text too much can hinder the process.

We all have an intuition and psychic abilities, however, just like any other talent in life some individuals have abilities that are stronger than others. Learning to trust the messages and information can be very tricky at first.
Develop your psychic muscles by doing frequent meditation and finding a form of spirituality that works for you. Meditate on each card. The next step is to practice, practice, practice. Get to know your cards and the images. Practice on friends and family. Journaling your results is extremely helpful.  

We all process information in different ways, so please try different things, and do what works best for you. As a final thought, my favorite approach to accomplishing anything is to BELIEVE you CAN and you WILL. Many people don’t think they are capable and that holds them back. Many blessings and best of luck to you on your journey.
