What Are Tarot Readings?

At its core, a tarot reading is a process of seeking hidden knowledge, where a tarot reader uses a 78-card deck to gain insight into a person’s life. Each card in the deck represents a different aspect of life, and when drawn in a reading, can provide insight into the past, present, and future. The most commonly known tarot deck is the Rider-Waite Tarot, but there are many different tarot decks available, each with their own unique illustrations, symbolism and interpretations. An experienced tarot reader will be familiar with multiple decks and be able to choose the one that resonates with you the most.

How to Prepare for a Tarot Reading?

Like anything meaningful in life, it’s important to set the intention and create a safe space for a tarot reading. Take some time to think about the issues that are occupying your thoughts and mind lately. In what areas in your life would you like to gain clarity? How are you dealing with the challenges in your life? Are you looking for advice or guidance to navigate them? Once you have answers to these questions, write them down. Coming prepared will help the tarot reader to connect with your energy and provide you with the most accurate reading possible. Preparing also helps to reduce any anxieties or nervousness. By respecting the process of the tarot reading, yourself, and the tarot reader, you are more likely to have a positive and meaningful experience.

What Happens During a Tarot Reading?

With your questions ready in hand, you can expect the tarot reading to start with the reader asking you to focus on a particular question or area of your life that you’d like insight on. They will then shuffle the deck and start drawing cards in a specific pattern, known as a tarot spread. Each position in a spread represents a different aspect of the question or situation. The insight and guidance is provided depending on the specific card that was drawn into the specific position. The tarot reader will provide a general interpretation into the meaning of each card, as well as how the cards may relate to you as well as each other, so that you may gain a better understanding of the whole picture.

What Can You Expect from a Tarot Reading?

If you go into a tarot reading with an open mind, you can expect to receive valuable insight and guidance on a wide range of topics, including love and relationships, career and finances, health and wellness, and more. Think about your life situations and with the help of the newly found insights, it can help you make more informed decisions and handle challenges with more confidence. However, it’s important to remember not to treat tarot readings as the one go-to source that you can’t live without. They are not a substitute for professional advice. They should be treated as a complimentary tool to gain insightful advice rather a definitive answer source to all your problems.

How and Where to Find a Reputable Tarot Reader?

No shortcuts here. Do your research. Look for reviews and testimonials from past clients, and consider taking advantage of the many online readers that offer free trials. It’s also important to look for a reader that feel you have a connection with on a personal level. Trust your instincts here. Tarot readings are a deeply personal experience, and you want to feel comfortable with the reader who is guiding you.
