Tarot readings are among the most well known and popular types of psychic readings and clairvoyant readings. Tarot cards date back to 15th-century Europe, when they were mostly used for game playing. It was in the 18th and 19th centuries that psychic tarot readings for divination, or future telling, became popular.
"Personally I find that the readers that use the tarot coupled with their other psychic abilities work best for me. They interpret the cards in a way that is free flowing and easy to understand."
A tarot reading centers around a deck of cards with specific drawings and symbols, somewhat similar to the popular 52-card playing deck that is used in cartomancy. A tarot reader uses the cards to uncover patterns, energies, and trends that can help interpret your present situation and predict future occurrences. Tarot readers in different countries use somewhat different decks with different sets of symbols, but the most common deck for tarot readings in modern times contains 78 cards, of which 22 are called major arcana and 56 are called minor arcana. While each psychic has his or her own deck, each includes the same number of cards and suits.
The major arcana include images associated with major influences and events in your life; for example: The Lovers, The Fool, The Magician, and The Emperor. The minor arcana, which provide meaning for the different stages in our life's journey, are divided into four suits of 14 cards each. The suits of the minor arcana are called Swords, Cups, Wands and Pentacles.
During a psychic tarot reading, the tarot reader lays the cards out in one of a number of different arrays, or spreads, depending on the question you ask and the way the tarot reader feels would be most revealing. The cards that appear and the order in which they are arrayed enable the tarot reader to shed light on your situation and answer your questions. Some of the things tarot readers consider in a spread include: which cards appear next to each other, whether cards appear right side up or upside down, which side of the spread certain cards appear on, and whether the cards are major or minor arcana.
Because they are so versatile, tarot card readings are appropriate for nearly any situation, and a phone tarot reading can be just as powerful as visiting a tarot reader in person. One of the most popular types of psychic love readings is a love tarot reading, which focuses on questions of the heart.
"When I concentrate on a question, as I continue to shuffle the cards, I receive psychic messages about the issue at hand. Then once the cards are laid out, the messages I’ve received through psychic vision and the messages evidenced in the cards synch up together."
You’ll be amazed at the answers your tarot reader gives and the intriguing possibilities the cards reveal!
Strength: The modern interpretation of the card stresses discipline and control. The lion represents the primal or id-like part of the mind, and the woman, the 'higher' or more elevated parts of the mind. The card tells the Querent to be wary of base emotions and impulse.
The Empress: The Empress is mother, a creator and nurturer. In many decks she can be shown as pregnant. She can represent the creation of life, of romance, of art or business. The Empress can represent the germination of an idea before it is ready to be fully born. The Empress is often associated with Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love, and indeed the Rider-Waite deck brandishes her symbol upon a heart-shaped bolster. The Empress is also often interpreted to be Demeter, goddess of abundance. She is the giver of earthly gifts, although at the same time, she can be overprotective and possessive.
The Tower: This card follows immediately after The Devil in all Tarots that contain it, and is considered an ill omen by some.
The Devil: Some frequent keywords used by tarot readers include: materialism, ignorance, stagnation, self bondage, lust, egoism, obsession, anxiety, anger, hedonism, passion, instincts, recist, sexuality, tempation, doubt, vice, futility, phsycial attractcion, pessimism, insight.
The Magician: The card can mean that a manipulator is floating around, usually if it's reversed. He may be a beneficent guide, but he does not necessarily have our best interests in mind. He may also represent the querent’s ego or self-awareness. He can also represent the intoxication of power, both good and bad.
