The Truth About Psychic Card Reading
Most of you probably picture psychic card reading as a woman sitting on a small table and leaning over it. This woman in your head probably wears a flowing robe and the room is filled with candles. She looks into some cards and foretells your impending doom.
This is not the real picture you should be imagining. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn stated that the Tarot aids when in contact with your higher self and the best sources of information come from within.
This article will give you a preview to the origins of Tarot cards, their meaning and purpose. It will tell you the importance of the place where they fall and prove to you that everyone can do Tarot reading.
Types of Psychic Card Reading
Tarot reading comes in two versions: open readings and question readings
Question readings include a specific question. Do not expect the Tarot to answer specific yes or no questions, nor you should use it to make final decisions. The tarot reading’s purpose is to guide you and help you make the decisions yourself. Because of this, how you ask the question is very important. Joan Bunning has pointed out to a few tips when it comes to question readings:
- Keep your Options Open
Do not ask questions whose answers you know before the session. Bunning, provided us with the following example: If you ask the tarot reader how you can encourage your mother-in-law to move out, you are choosing the wrong question. What you really should ask, but are avoiding to, is how you should manage to get along with her.
- Find the Best Detail Level
The questions you ask should be focused. Avoid very detailed questions and don’t look at the problem from a particular aspect. Try to broaden your perception. An example to this is the question of making the homeless chaotic. Instead of asking this detailed question, try to ask how to balance the kid and adult schedules better. This question is focused.
- Put the Focus on Yourself
If you are asking questions for yourself, make sure not to put the focus on someone else. For example, you shouldn’t ask why your son is using drugs, but you should ask how you affected his decisions.
- Stay Neutral
Your question should always be neutral when you decide to go to psychic card reading. In this way, you will stay open to other points of view and will receive the right guidance. An example of this is asking why you are working more than your spouse at home. Instead, you should ask how to make your husband cooperate more in the home activities.
- Stay Positive
Do not state your question in a negative way. Instead of asking why something hasn’t happened to you, ask how to make it happen.
Open readings are focused on your life in general rather than on a specific program. These readings are recommended for people that enter a new life phase such as college, marriage or a new family.
The Tarot Deck of cards
Tarot decks of cards vary and so does the standard cards number. The types of cards and the suits meanings are always the same, but the illustrations often vary. These illustrations are based on animals, nature, dragons, fantasy etc.
The most common Tarot deck to be found in the US is the one called Rider-Waite deck. This deck was created by A.E. Waite in 1909. This man was a prominent member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn occult group, published by Rider & Company.
The artist of this deck was Pamela Colman Smith. Her art was consisted of 78 cards and was the only readily available deck present in the United States at the time.
The Tarot deck is constituted of two parts: the Minor Arcana and the Major Arcana. The Minor Arcana includes four suits like the regular decks. The difference is that instead of spades, diamonds, hearts and clubs, it includes swords, wands, cups and circles or pentacles.
Each of these suits has a specific interpretation to a certain life approach. The cards are numbered 1-10 and also the king, knight, queen and page are included to the deck. This deck represents the more minor occurrences in life, the daily ups and downs of the person.
The Major Arcana on the other hand, is not associated with the suits, but includes picture cards that represent various concepts, ideals and principles. These are numbered through 21 and the 22nd card is 0. This card is also referred to as the Fool. These cards are not oriented towards the daily happenings in the life, but towards the big events or life areas.
How Do Tarot Cards Work in Psychic Card Reading?
If you see a Major Arcana card and a Minor Arcana card in two consequent readings about a single subject, this would mean that that particular subject is becoming less important in your life.
