Tarot cards are commonly used as a form of divination to measure and evaluate influences and outcomes surrounding a person or event. The purpose of the tarot is to inform the subject with information they can use to make informed decisions about their life.
In tarot, a spread refers to the arrangement of the cards dealt during a reading. The two most common spreads are the Celtic Cross, and the Three Fates. Each position in a spread is associated with a different aspect of the question asked. The Three Fates consists of three cards that describe the past, the present, and the future. The Celtic Cross is made up of ten or eleven cards that could represent any history or future influences, conflicting issues, and hopes for the future.
There is speculation about the power of the cards. Some readers believe that anyone can produce a meaningful reading by picking up the cards, while others feel there is some power in the cards based on the reader’s talents.
How Do Tarot Cards Work?
There are two types of tarot readings, open readings, and question readings. Question readings are meant to address a specific issue. Many people believe that tarot readings shouldn’t be used to answer yes or no questions or to make definitive decisions. Instead, it should be used as a guide to aid the user in making their own choices. During a question reading, you should keep your options open and not know the answer to that question before your tarot reading. Questions should be focused but not overly detailed. It’s important to stay neutral and open to other points of view. If you ask for it, the cards will provide you with guidance. Avoid starting your question off in a negative way.
Open readings can address broader aspects of your life rather than just a specific question or concern. Ideally, they are meant for individuals who are entering a new phase of their life such as starting a family, your health, getting married, your career, or graduating from college.
How Can Tarot Change Your Life
Tarot readings can navigate one through life’s tough challenges and help you begin the process of healing if necessary. Tarot can be a powerful tool to help people see the bigger picture when it comes to the direction their lives may be headed. It can teach you to how to better relate with others and how to grow spiritually through meditating with the cards. Many individuals use tarot to help them problem-solve in any situation. There are thousands of different types of spreads you can choose from for more complex questions. A typical tarot deck consists of 78 cards which are all you need to create your destiny.
Tarot Readings Regarding Love And Dating
A popular reason why one might use tarot is to determine if their love compass is broken. Many people find it difficult to find a partner they can deeply connect with. Finding love using tarot is possible if past relationships have left you feeling defeated. For centuries, tarot cards have been used to navigate people through difficult situations in their lives.
Regardless of the issue you are currently facing, tarot can give you the insight to steer you back in the right direction. Be prepared and confident before your reading with the questions you want to ask and be answered. Instead of asking “will I meet the man of my dreams tomorrow?” ask broader questions that will help you connect with your inner self. Some examples could be:
- How can I avoid repeating unhealthy relationship patterns?
- How can I attract love?
- What is holding me back?
- What can I learn from past relationships?
- How can I move forward from a past relationship?
Tarot readings can improve your love life and your future in many ways. You most likely already know what it is that you want but need help so you can finally see it. Tarot gives you another perspective and opens your eyes to what you’ve already known all along. You will come out of a reading figuring out what it is that is holding you back from finding love. Tarot can help you realize what you need to do to create a lasting, positive relationship in your life. It can help pinpoint what you bring to the table when it comes to partnerships, what’s working, and what’s not.
Tarot is very powerful in opening your eyes to your current situation. Choosing wisely is essential when it comes to dating and relationships. If you’re unsure about a certain someone, the tarot will give you the insight to make the most informed decisions. There are specific tarot cards to look out for especially, during a reading regarding your love life.
The Lovers is one card you usually want to see in your spread. It can represent unity with your potential soul mate. If it is shown in the past, it could mean that there is a lover you are obsessing over that no other man can match.
If shown in the past, this breakup card confirms a painful ending of a relationship. When shown in the present, it means there is chaos that is surrounding you.
The Magician tends to be a positive and powerful card. This is especially true when present during a male’s reading. However, if the tarot reader is not seeing it in combination with certain other cards, it could represent an untruthful and manipulative man in a female’s life.
The Hanged Man
Just like its name, the hanged man can represent an indecisive, immature man that you should avoid. When shown in the present position, it could define a man who is pure at heart but is challenged by life.
Each tarot deck has four Kings, one for each suit: Swords, Cups, Wands, and Pentacles. During a woman’s reading, the upsidedown King falling in the past represents a man who is domineering. This could be a father, boss, brother, etc. If a King falls upright in the present position, it could indicate that the man you are with is a good choice.
Whatever your situation may be, unhappily or happily single, in a relationship or looking for a relationship, tarot readings have the answers for you.
