How Does Tarot Reading Work


Whenever i have someone new coming to me for a tarot session they always ask me, so how does this work?

Firstly, let's talk about the terms:

  • Reader - This is the tarot reader, the one interpreting the cards for you.

  • Querent - This is you. The person inquiring from the cards.

  • Spread - How the cards are laid out on the table.

  • Before you begin, the cards are shuffled or mixed together, now depending on the tarot reader, either the reader does this or the querent does it. I prefer to shuffle cards on my own. Once that's done then comes the reading. A reading can be two things a Question based reading or an open reading.

    Question readings address a specific question or problem area. When going in for one, try to keep your questions as open to options as possible, be focused, stay neutral and be positive that you will find your answers. Open psychic readings, on the other hand, address the larger scheme of things. This is the kind of reading to look for when you are entering a new phase in life, such as deciding to have children, starting on a new career path or getting Married.

    Open psychic readings on the other hand, address the larger scheme of things. This is the kind of reading to look for when you are entering a new phase in life, such as deciding to have children, starting on a new career path or getting married. In Question Readings, ask questions that should: Keeps your options open. Questions like 'when will I find a new?' is a restrictive question because it rules out the possibility of an old something returning, Revising this question this way, "when will I find love?" or when will I find love, and with whom?" is much better. All of these are time questions, so the best form would be, the "tell me about.." form which assumes no answers or time periods. Once you ask you're question, the Tarot reader will lay down the cards in a certain way, these are called spreads. You have different kinds of spreads for different situations, each card has a position and each position has a meaning. All you have to do is keep an open mind and concentrate on your question, You WILL FIND YOUR ANSWERS.
