Tarot Cards

Greetings people of the internet and happy new year to you all! I know it’s been a while since my last post, but, not to worry I am back. This article will be a brief explanation on Tarot Cards and its uses

Its key that after you get a gist of how to use these cards, you go and get an understanding for yourself. Meaning, more research on the subject and a hands on experience if you feel you’re ready. Not to worry though, it’s very simple once you get the hang of it

Lets dive in

What are Tarot Cards?

Tarot Cards are one of many divination tools used to give perspective on events relating to the past, present, or ever-changing future. A practitioner asks the cards (their intuition/deities/spirit guides etc.) a question relating to either a problem they have or a situation they would like perspective on

The cards give you a birds eye view of the situation, which can give you hints towards what you can do to change your current reality. It may either advise you to look into the past to release any hidden traumas, or into your present to let you know of any bad influences that need to be released, and so on

If you’re looking for what the near future may hold, it’ll give you an idea of what you can expect on the current path you’re taking, but, the future is ever changing so take your reading as a brief glimpse

Tarot Card Symbolism

If you recall my older post on Decoding Dreams, you’ll remember a picture showing the tarot card: Death. Though it may sound unnerving, that card can mean endings of a cycle or aspect of yourself, not literal death in some cases

For example, a child growing into an adult. In order for that to happen, childish behavior (and I don’t mean the creative aspect of a child, keep that!) must “die” in order for someone to grow into that role. I’m sure you get the gist

With that said, these cards can be symbols of events, people, and obstacles, etc. in your life. In order to figure out what a card may represent or mean, that’s where your own intuition comes into play. You use that inner voice of yours to discern the message the cards you pulled have given you.

Let me give you an example:

The Hanged Man by SammyDavisDog

This card shows a man hanging by his foot with a look of content on his face despite his predicament. As you can see, he’s in no rush to free himself from the position he’s in. In a reading, this could mean that you should slow down and look at the position you’re in to make sense of everything. Or perhaps you have a lot on your mind and you should sit and rest before taking action

You may see different meanings for this card across the internet and that’s fine. A picture is worth a thousand words, so each and every person has their own perspective. Its imperative that you get your own understanding of these cards, so that when you are looking for that ‘bird eye’s view’, you can understand it in your own language

Also, it doesn’t hurt to get a general understanding of every card which you can find on the internet as well. Note: If a card doesn’t feel right, feel free to reshuffle and draw again. Trust yourself!

Counterfeit Tarot Readers

If you plan on getting a reading done by another person, its important that you choose the right people to give you accurate information. There are fake tarot readers who will give you basic information or information that’s pleasing to the ears. I’d advise you from going to these people so that you won’t get stuck in the money-grab hustle they have, and so that you get information that you need to hear

This will require your intuition as well, since no hustler will tell the hustled that they’re being played. I believe every person is capable of giving themselves a reading as long as they believe in their own abilities to do so. Of course, nothing’s wrong with getting a perspective from another person, because hearing information from the right person may help change your situation. Truth hurts and lies kill–same with good friends and bad ones

I’d like to thank you all for reading and I hope you got a good understanding of what these cards are used for and how to use them for yourselves. Remember to always do your own research so that you too, can be a tarot reader

That said, I am capable of giving you all readings if you desire one. Let me say that I won’t accept any and every request for a reading depending on the circumstances.

I will refuse to give you one at my own discretion, and I will only give you information that you can use to help yourself. I am not your personal guidance counselor, so if I give you the information provided from your own energy, I expect you to take that and build upon it yourself

Again thank you all for reading and have a wonderful rest of your day 🙂
