What is Tarot?
Tarot is the name of a deck of cards, that traditionally contains 78 individual cards that are grouped within five suits. The suits are typically swords, cups, coins (or pentacles), batons (or wands), and a permanent suit of trump cards. The first four suits are known as the Minor Arcana, and the trump cards are known as the Major Arcana. All are useful and needed to have a complete tarot deck.
What is Tarot used for and what are the benefits of tarot reading?
The deck is used to help provide guidance, answers, and more to anyone that is seeking knowledge to have a better understanding of themselves, others, and the world around them. Tarot is able to help explain the past, present, and potential future of things based on the question given and the energies surrounding the question at the time of the reading.
What are spreads?
A Tarot spread is how one lays the cards in order to get the reading. There are many different spreads in tarot. Few are general, and few are specific to your type of question. The 3-card spread is the simplest and if you ask the right question, three or four cards are all you will ever need to get a clear answer. But of course, usually, one question does lead to more questions and naturally more cards to use!
How Accurate Is Tarot Card Reading?
A real tarot reader never guarantees any future outcome. Tarot cards are just a tool that guides you to a better path after deep analysis by the reader. Also, there are different readings like love readings, spiritual readings, and so on. However, tarot readings must not be confused with psychic readings, fortune telling, past life readings, and numerology readings, as they are very different.
Another important thing is having the right mindset while going for a session. Your positive energy assists the reader in making accurate predictions. However, the predictions also depend upon your current state. Sometimes, a person is more receptive to tarot readings depending on their emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical state. You won’t always get a reading at full efficiency, especially if you come in with doubt or are not ready to hear what truths lie ahead.
