What is a tarot card or tarot reading?

A standard set of tarot decks has 78 tarot cards, with each having its unique symbolism, meaning, and imagery. Now, these 78 cards are again split into 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 Minor Arcana cards. A major arcana is important as it affects the overall tarot reading.

Steps to do a tarot reading

Understanding the meaning of tarot is important when you start reading. A tarot should resonate with you so you can read them correctly. Here are a few steps which can guide you in reading tarot:

  1. Clean energy is important

It is important to have clean energy when you start your reading. You can choose whatever methods suit you better. For example, some people prefer burning herbs, some people prefer ringing a bell or using their favorite crystals while there is another set that uses a Selenite wand. But what is important is that you choose a cleaning method to clean the place of any negative energy before starting your preparation.

Although cleaning the environment and atmosphere is important, it is equally important to have a clear, clean, and focused head when doing the reading. In that case, it is also advisable to have a few meditative breaths to clear your head and body of any negative or troubling thoughts before starting a reading.

  1. Shuffle and choose your tarot card

So now you are ready to choose your card. You have your deck ready, a clear mind, body, and atmosphere. Time to shuffle those cards. Now do a few meditative steps and think clearly about the query for which you are spreading the card. The desire for knowledge for which you are doing this tarot reading. And then shuffle the card. To put it simply there is no wrong or right way to shuffle a card. You can shuffle your card whichever way you desire and it would be correct for you.

When your query is clear and your shuffle is done then with a clear and open heart look for answers to your queries or questions. The way the cards would be laid out in front of you is called the spread. Now you have your spread of the deck. The only point to note here is sometimes you may not like what your cards are telling and other times you may need another card to understand the meaning that tarots want to convey. In either of the cases be open to answers and clues the world is giving you about your query.

  1. Reading the spread

Now you have your spread, read your card, and understand their meaning. More often than not we do not like the answer and keep asking the question over and over again, this can either lead to confusion or a complex tarot reading. Both of which are not advisable. The best course and advisable would be to understand the meaning of the tarots and prepare yourself accordingly.

Another thing to keep in mind for beginners would be to not draw cards for complex and in-depth answers. For example, you can try to draw three or five cards, try to read them separately, and then draw the overall story. Another hot topic of discussion among the tarot reading community is whether or not to read card reversals. Well, there is no concrete way to answer it, but whatever the tarot card resonates and speaks with you, you must follow that with an open heart.

Keeping an open idea about your question is more beneficial when dealing with tarot reading than having a yes/no answer. For example: instead of asking whether your crush would purpose you, it is advisable to ask what all are the obstacles in my love life. This can give you a more clear picture and better understanding.

Something important to remember

One important point to consider would be to open your heart to hear the voice of the universe, fate, and destiny. It is always good to hear the voice of fate and the universe, who knows you might learn a thing or two about how to deal with your current problem.
