Tarot reading is the practice of using tarot cards to gain insight into the past, present & future of a person’s life. This form of reading is done a little differently. Here, we will try to give you an idea about the working of tarot cards. Before we start with working of tarot, let’s know about the cards first, there are many variations in tarot, but 78 cards are commonly used, 56 of them are segregated into 4 suits. These 4 suits stand for physical, emotional, intellectual & energy. The remaining 22 cards are the trump cards, they represent major events in the life of people.
Now, reading is of two types, one is question reading and the other is open reading. Question reading deals with the particular question asked at the moment, although, many people claim that tarot reading should not be done to make decisions, rather it should be used as a strong guiding tool to make decisions. Therefore, it’s really important to notice the way a question is formed. On the other hand, open reading involves analyzing the tarot and explain its meaning.
Tarot reading works differently for different people, which depends on many factors. So, before reading starts, the person obtaining the reading shuffles the card, this way the person’s energy will transfer to the deck. Now, after the shuffling is done and the deck has been cut, the cards are being arranged, these cards in an arranged pattern is known as ‘the spread’. The Tarot has many spreads and the interpretation depends on these patterns & placement of spreads. Positioning matters very much in tarot and even where the cards fall is also a major considering point at the time of interpretation. As each position in tarot signifies a different meaning.
