What actually happens during a Tarot Card reading?

When you think about what happens in tarot card readings, you probably imagine walking into a dimly lit room with incense burning. Then, you see a person dressed in intricate and flashy clothing sitting at a table with a deck of cards. This may have been what tarot card readings were like in the past, but now they are given by people in all walks of life and in several settings, even the Internet. Take a look at what to expect whether it's your first tarot card reading or not. 

What to Expect in Preparation for Your Tarot Card Reading

As soon as you arrive for your reading, there may be some sort of ritual your tarot reader performs to set the mood and get rid of distracting energies to give you the best tarot card reading experience. Sometimes the preparation has already been done before you arrive. No matter whether your reading is performed in person, on the phone, or over the Internet, your psychic will prepare mentally before it happens. You should do the same; go into the reading with an open mind and a neutral mood.

The Tarot Reader Will Set the Atmosphere

You won’t necessarily walk through strings of beads on a doorway to find a psychic with hoop earrings, but the atmosphere will be different than the norm. For instance, it’s very common for your psychic to light incense, turn down the lights, and perform rituals to get rid of any negative energy in the room. The atmosphere will be relaxing and welcoming. If you're talking to an online psychic, try to mimic the atmosphere for a better reading.

Your Tarot Card Deck

Tarot cards are used as a method of divination. They are a tool that helps psychics tune in to their powers to foretell the future. Your psychic will choose a tarot card deck for your reading. Several decks exist — the Rider Waite deck, the Thoth deck, and the Tarot of Marseilles deck. Your psychic may also have created separate card spreads for different situations. To determine which deck to use for your psychic tarot reading, you may be asked some general questions about the information you’re seeking. You can answer; just be careful not to reveal too much.


There are no bad cards in a tarot deck. Some people are afraid of seeing the death card or the devil card. However, the death card doesn’t necessarily mean physical death. It may just mean the death of one aspect of your life, such as a job or relationship. Tarot card readings are typically balanced with good things and bad things.

Understanding Your Reading

During the reading, your psychic will reveal one card at a time and try to determine what it means for your life. Each card is full of symbolism that can relate to different aspects of your life. Tarot cards can also reveal your personality traits, strengths, and weaknesses. As each card is revealed, you will have an opportunity to discuss your questions with your psychic.


Anything can be revealed during a tarot card reading. You may learn that you’re unhappy with your job, relationship, or any other aspect of your life. You also might be given guidance on things that you need to work on. Tarot cards are also known to predict the future, so they can help you to prepare for what’s to come, both the good and the bad.

Things You Should Know About Your First Tarot Card Reading

You Won’t Have to Answer Lots of Questions

Before you get a tarot reading, your psychic may ask you your birthday and other distinguishing features, but be wary of any psychic that tries to get too much information from you. Your psychic doesn’t need any information from you to perform a reading. Questions may come up during the reading, but try not to divulge too much information because this can taint your reading and make it less accurate.

Don’t Be Worried About Getting Bad Cards

Despite popular belief, there are no bad cards in a tarot deck. The Death card does not mean that you are going to physically die. It could mean a painful transition, new beginning, or even the birth of a child. Likewise, the Devil card does not always mean the presence of evil. It could mean the end of a relationship, untrustworthy people in your life, or your ego.

Tarot Cards Do Not Have Magical Properties

Lots of people think that tarot cards are scary because they're imbued with magic, but this is not true. Tarot cards are simply cards. They are the vehicle your psychic uses to focus and tap into your energy and subconscious. Tarot cards are similar to a crystal ball or any other object psychics use for divination, so don’t be afraid of the cards! They can be interpreted in many different ways.

Your Reading Will Not Be 100 Percent Accurate

It’s impossible for a psychic to give you a 100 percent perfect tarot reading because there are so many things that can skew the reading of the cards. For instance, if your mind is wandering, it can affect your reading. Therefore, try to stay focused and avoid asking free will questions, like, "Will I lose weight?" Let the psychic pick up on your energy and lead the reading. That’s when you’ll get the most accurate reading. If you’re unsatisfied with the things you learn, you can get another reading to ask for clarification.

You never know what to expect for sure from a tarot reading, but it’s important to go into it with an open mind. The tarot reader needs to get energy from you to give an accurate reading, so relax and go with the flow.
