Tarot Card Readings
Tarot Cards are powerful tools for those with the ability to interpret the cards.
It is believed that Tarot Card Readings originated sometime in the 14th-15th centuries in northern Italy. Originally, the cards were used in game, but eventually came to be used as a tool for divination. Perhaps one of the earliest and most influential practitioners of tarot was the French occultist Jean-Baptiste Alliette (1738-1791), who assigned divinatory meanings to each card for upright and reverse orientations, as well as spreads.
The type of deck used is based upon personal preference. Traditionally, there are 78 cards in a Tarot Card deck, which is separated into two parts: the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana. The 22 Major Arcana Cards symbolise the universal patterns of human nature. The 56 Minor Arcana cards on the other hand is further divided into 4 suits- Pentacles, Cups, Swords & Wands. They represent the energy, emotions and activities of our daily lives.
The mystical tarot has indeed come a long way from its humble origins. In the field of psychology, Carl Jung (1875-1961) even pioneered the use of tarot cards in analysing the Subconscious.
As each card has a unique astrological meaning and numeric significance, the cards can be used to gain insight, clarity, and achieve greater control over issues involving relationships, life changes, family, career, health, spirituality, and dreams.
Whilst anyone can do a tarot reading, it takes commitment to be able to truly
understand the cards.
How do Tarot Card Readings Online Work?
Many people wonder how a deck of cards can tell us anything, but as we study the cards we realize that they go way beyond the pictures that we see. As we use the cards we gain a greater understanding of ourselves and the world around us. They represent journeys that each of us must take and lessons we need to learn and master while we are on the earth plane.
In most cases the tarot is viewed as a tool for divination. With a normal reading we have someone who seeks information and answers, usually personal questions; and then a reader who knows how to interpret the cards.
A typical reading begins as the person seeking answers shuffles the deck, lays them down on the table, and picks out certain cards with them facing down. As these cards are chosen, the querent hands them to the reader who places them face up on the table in a certain way which is called the spread.
The spread can be any one of a number of patterns each of which has a certain name and are used for various types of readings. One of the most popular spreads is the Celtic cross and is used to give a general reading. But to ensure you receive the best results your reader will select the best spread for the specific question you are asking. For example they will change their layout of the cards for love readings, relationship readings, money readings, etc.
Many people can be very concerned when certain cards arise especially the Death card. But as with so many cards including the Death card, the meanings are not what you may think. And in the case of the Death card, this can mean simply the end of a certain part of our lives and rarely has anything to do with our actually dying.
As the reader lays down the cards they also receive ideas and impressions in their subconscious that helps them answer your question. They are not simply looking at the pictures and giving you the answers. It is through special combinations that they are able to give you the information you seek.
We hope this has given you an insight into the Tarot cards and how our gifted readers can gain such insight into your life for you.
