Your first Tarot Reading

FirstTarotReadingIt’s your first Tarot readings and you’re a bit nervous, which is understandable. So what should you expect?

While there are allkinds of attitudes towards the practice of Tarot reading, there’s one undeniable fact: everyone is interested in the mystic aspect of what we can learn about ourselves.

Before finding your reader, it’s important to know that there are actually two different kinds of readings: one that answers a question and the other is an open reading.

The first method forces you to concentrate on a very clear, yet not overly specific question that pertains to your life. For example, yes or no questions should be completely out of the picture. They should be asked in a way that tells you how to move forward with your life, as opposed to named negative obstacles in your life.

The second is typically done to get an assessment of your life overall, and typically are best done during a state of transition, such as moving, getting a new job, or getting married.

The cards themselves have four suits: Wands, Swords, Cups, and Pentacles (much like a normal deck).
Each suit contains easily countable cards numbering 1-10, followed by four face cards.

Your Tarot reader will display the cards, typically in a Celtic cross formation, and interpret the reading based on which cards appeared and in what order. This can provide a great deal of insight into your own world and what you can take from it.
