Reading tarot cards
Reading tarot cards? If you want to do it seriously then you may need a tarot book, go through each card individually and write down what you see. It is very useful to do this. After you have gone through all of the cards then reading books and articles on the subject is useful. The image may remind you of something. Learning about the tarot is more about the experience than the end result. The process does not end.
Every book on the tarot is someone's interpretation. Their point of view is not any more correct than your impressions just because they wrote a book on the subject. The Empress card may mean something very different to you than it does to someone else, but there is nothing wrong with that. A reader must use his own thoughts and his own feelings. Discover your own impressions of the cards before you read about someone else's opinion. Once you have heard someone's opinion you are not likely to forget it.
Your impressions will be affected by what you have read or heard whether you realize it or not. It is suggested that you look at the cards on your own before you incorporate someone else's thoughts into your interpretation.Reading tarot cards?

After you have gone through all of the cards then reading books and articles on the subject is useful.
The image may remind you of something. Learning about the tarot is more about the experience than the end result. The process does not end. There is always more to learn, and there are always other decks to use.
Step One: You have to be comfortable with your chosen tarot deck. Feel the good vibes. Select a Deck Tarot Cards-pick one that appeals to your taste, style, and cultural background. You will find that your tarot reading will be smooth and flowing. Beginners should select a standard Rider-Waite tarot deck as their very first deck. The Rider-Waite is standard and it is best to learn from a standard or traditional deck.
Step 2: Learn the Card Meanings Have a basic understanding of all the tarot card meanings of the 78 cards of the tarot deck. It is not a long arduous task. In the long run, it can be rewarding and illuminating. Interpreting tarot cards to open up your intuition and as a result, leads to greater awareness of the self. It will reveal influences and half hidden motives outside your control as well. There are two ways you can learn tarot: memorize the meanings of the cards; or use your intuition. Carefully look at the card you chose mentally noting all the details. Next, take a sheet of paper and a pen or pencil and write down a brief story or a description of the picture in the card. Don't forget to write down which card it is as well! This story doesn't have to be complex, just 3 or 4 sentences is fine. Read it back to yourself. Keep in mind that different people will see different stories, but most likely there will be common themes. There is no one "right" story or interpretation of a tarot card. There are a couple of ways you can use this technique to learn to read the Tarot. You can keep your stories of each card in a notebook that you can then refer to, or you can use this technique each and every time you do a tarot spread. The second method can allow for different stories depending on what your intuition is telling you at that particular moment which can be very useful. However, the first method will allow you to quickly grasp the different possible meanings for each card. Also when you go through the whole deck and write the different stories down this helps you to remember the meanings of the different cards, and to see how certain cards relate to each other. One rule of the Tarot to keep in mind while doing a reading is that any card which appears upside down is then going to tell whatever story is opposite to the one which would be told were the card right-side up.
Step 3: Ritual- Have a tarot reading ritual. Meditate. Reveal information which will help you or the inquirer to solve his/her problems. Do what feels right for you. Have new age music in the background, burn incense or light a candle. However, a tarot ritual can be a full ritual in it or something simple yet meaningful. Why do a ritual for a tarot reading? Ritual marks that what you are doing is not frivolous or for fun, but sacred and meaningful.It is important that the reader learns about the methods of protection. Here are a few techniques can be used: * Before a reading, visualize yourself surrounded in white light. Speak out loud, “No negative energies or thoughts can penetrate this light.” * Light a white candle. The color white is associated with protection. Elicit the candle's flame to become so bright that negative people, thoughts, and energies will run from its glow. * Spread regular table salt around your reading area. This ritual will keep any negative energy from invading your space. * Try not to let anyone else handle your cards. If this happens, as quickly as possible, tap the cards three times and then go through each individual card to place your energy back onto them.
Step 4: Shuffling the Cards & Asking Questions- You can shuffle the tarot cards yourself and have the inquirer cut it with the left hand or you let the inquirer do both the shuffling and cutting of the tarot cards. The inquirer should at least touch the cards before the reading begins. Make sure you have a clean cloth to lay you tarot cards. Have plenty of room to spread your cards around the table, so it won't look crowded and makes for an easy and comfortable tarot readingWhen you feel it is time to end the Tarot reading, hold your deck in your hands and silently thank it for all the guidance it has brought to you today. You may want to enjoy a brief moment of silence just to let the reading settle in.Reshuffle your Tarot deck and return it to its resting place.
