Frequently Asked Questions About Tarot
What is Tarot?
The Tarot is a deck made up of 78 colourful cards. The Tarot deck is divided into a) Major Arcana and b) Minor Arcana and contains 22 Major symbolic cards and 56 Minor suit cards – comprised of the four suits of Wands, Swords, Cups, and Pentacles. The Major Arcana (symbolic cards) consists of the Magician, the High Priestess, the Empress, the Emperor, the Hierophant, the Lovers, the Chariot, Strength, the Hermit, the Wheel of Fortune, Justice, the Hanged Man, Death, Temperance, the Devil, the Tower, the Star, the Moon, the Sun, Judgement and the World. The Minor Arcana (suits cards) consists of the aces, twos, threes, fours, fives, sixes, sevens, eights, nines, tens, pages, knights, queens, and kings in each of the four suits: Wands, Swords, Cups and Pentacles. The word “Tarot” comes from the Italian word “Tarocchi,” a card game originally termed “carte datrionfi” – “cards with trumps.” It has been theorized that the name was shortened from “Tarocchi” to “Taro” and evolved over time into the French “Tarot”.From a purely historical perspective, there is evidence to suggest that the cards came into being in the Northern Italian Courts, during the mid 15th century. People with more esoteric leanings maintain that the cards have their roots in the ancient mysteries of Egypt and the mythical city of Atlantis. A short history of Tarot.
What Is A Tarot Reading?
Basically speaking; a Tarot Reading is given by a Tarot Reader to a Querent (a person asking for a reading). The cards are laid out by the Reader in a variety of different layouts (or spreads). Meanings are assigned to the cards themselves and their placement within the spread influences the interpretation of the individual cards and the meaning of the cards taken as a whole. A Tarot Reading can be used as a form of divination and is often given with the assumption that the cards can give insight into current and possible future situations. The Tarot can also be used to give direction and guidance.
How Do Tarot Readings Work?
The Tarot is part of the living sea of energy in which everything and everyone is connected. When you ask the Tarot a question you link up to all that is. The pictures on the cards are expressions of the life forces that are moving through you, at any given point in time. The Tarot Cards are symbolic pictures of the influences within your life. The Tarot can also be seen as a living picture book that changes every time we read it. It can help us to decide on the most suitable course of action; when to move and when to wait, or when to look in another direction entirely. Also it can show hidden agendas and solutions we may have previously overlooked. The Tarot does not take away our free will or our ability to make the best choices for ourselves and it certainly doesn’t predict a fixed unchanging future. We have free will and are always able to change the path we are on. A Tarot Reading gives us information – what we do with that information is completely up to us.
How To Find A Good Tarot Reader?
Look for a Tarot Reader with experience and a good reputation. You can ask friends and relatives to recommend a good Tarot Reader, if you know they have sought this kind of advice in the past. Alternatively, if you are looking online, seek out someone you feel comfortable with and who you resonate with and read their Testimonials. Ask Spirit / God / Higher Self (whatever name you feel comfortable with) to guide you to find the right Tarot Reader.
What Is The Tarot Best Used For?
Some people us the Tarot for divination and prediction. I prefer to use the Tarot to help give direction and guidance. The future is not fixed, it changes with experience, with knowledge and through choice. A Tarot Reading can assist you in making these choices, it cannot make them for you.
How To Ask The Tarot A Question?
This is a very important component of receiving a good and satisfying reading and its not something to rush into. How you
ask the question and how you word your question, affects the answer that the cards are able to give to you. Its worth putting some time and energy into this aspect of the Reading. Ask the cards something that will give you insight into your problem or situation. Ask how best to accomplish what you want, rather than if you will accomplish it or if it will happen.

Can I Ask The Tarot A Question About Conception ?
I believe from my own experience of trying to conceive that conception is very, very closely handled from above, and that we have less control over that than we might think we do.
Can I Ask The Tarot Timing Questions?
Many psychics, including myself, believe in the concept of divine timing. Time is a 3-dimensional construct, but our guides are in a higher dimension, and to them, time is a very fluid thing that is entirely derived from our 3D perception of the universe from earth, and there is no way for them to get a good fix on it from “up there”. And, of course, human actions and choices have a bearing on timing as well.
What Conditions Determine A Good Tarot Reading?
You – preparation/attitude/question. Tarot Reader – preparation/attitude/time and energy expended/experience.
How Accurate Is A Tarot Card Reading?
Very talented and experienced Tarot Readers have high accuracy rating, others will have accuracy rates that vary. There are certain conditions that need to be met when giving and receiving a Tarot Reading (see above). When all the conditions are met properly, a Tarot Reading can be very accurate indeed.
How Can I Trust What A Tarot Reading Tells Me?
Once you have received your tarot card reading answers, sit with them for a little while. Watch how the answers affect you both physically, mentally and emotionally. Have an open mind as you mull over the messages from the cards and see how they relate to your own life. You may need to think about the answers you receive for a few days, before you can really understand what the tarot card reading is saying to you. I personally, will always urge you to follow your own intuition. So, if the tarot card reading seems to counteract what you feel at a deep level, then I would urge you to listen to what your intuition is telling you, over and above the messages that you have received from the tarot cards.
Does Someone Have To Be Psychic To Read Tarot Cards?
Anyone can read the Tarot cards, it’s just a matter of memorizing some basic meanings and getting used to the different cards in the deck. Most all human beings possess intuitive and psychic abilities that are for the most part uncultivated. Reading the Tarot can over time, help wake up dormant intuitive and psychic powers.
