Learn How to Interpret a Tarot Card Reading - Articles Surfing
Many people are fascinated by tarot cards because of the mysticism that surrounds them. They want to believe that someone can see into the future and as such offer guidance on making the right decisions. If you have been to a tarot card reading or are planning to go then you should consider informing yourself on how the card reader will interpret the cards.
If you do not understand the symbolism then you get less out of the reading. This article will teach you some of the basics about tarot card reading, so hopefully you will get a richer experience the next time you go for a reading.
When you sit down with a tarot card reader for the first time, you will be asked to focus on a specific issue or question that is prevalent in your mind. Following this, the reader will shuffle the cards before drawing a set number. Before each card is drawn the reader will randomly shuffle the cards and stop on intuition.
Afterwards the reader will position the chosen cards into a particular set pattern on the table. This is called the spread. There are many different forms of the spread but this is outside the scope of this article. For now we will focus on one the most common, the Horseshoe Spread. In this method, seven cards are chosen and placed in a semi-circle.
Once the cards are set up, the tarot card reader will begin the interpretation of the cards. They are read from left to right and the first card represents the person's past. The past can refer to a specific person or event. This is a hugely significant card as although it represents the past, it is likely to be the cause of the current question at the center of the person's life.
The second card will represent the present day. So the card will help to provide an insight into how the person feels about the question or issue in the present day. The third card is very important as it will reveal the obstacles that are preventing a solution of the issues involved. This is done by looking at what fear and aspirations the person has about the issue. What do they expect to happen? What do they want to avoid happening?
The issues that arise from the third card will help the reader to interpret the obstacles that are revealed in the fourth card. The obstacles can range from another person or event that surrounds the question or it might relate to the person's own state of mind.
The fifth card addresses the bigger picture. This card will reveal what the various motivations are for other people that are directly involved in the issue or question. The outcome will depend on whether the reader discovers positive or negative energy. If it is the former then the other people involved can be a barrier to solving the problem. Conversely the card may reveal them to be a part of the solution.
The penultimate card is crucial. It reveals the future qualities or traits that are needed to solve the problem. The reader will indicate that the person needs to be constantly aware of the possible solutions to the issue as they will reveal themselves only at the appropriate time.
The final card is centered on the outcome. The end of the reading concludes with a look at what the most important outcome to the problem is. This seems obvious but focusing on the overall goal the solution can often reveal the way to get there. Unfortunately, the solution revealed in the last card does not always make much sense until after the issue has been resolved.
