Reading Tarot cards requires certain capabilities. It’s important for the prospective student of Tarot cards to be able to control mental distractions. White noise distracts the mind from reading Tarot cards and diminishes the value of readings.
Tarot cards are best read when there is a natural inclination to do so. Whenever an issue or situation arises, something from deep within the mind inclines the individual to seek guidance from meditation on Tarot cards. Deepest concentration is achieved when worldly distractions are shut out and the mind is open.
The Wealth Of Inspiration From Tarot Cards
In addition to honing meditative skills, Tarot cards also provide a good source of inspiration. This is a result of allowing Tarot cards to fall as they may. The prospective Tarot card reader should understand that natural inclination is part of becoming an inspired Tarot card reader.
This simply means the reader should be alert to their impulses. For example, take note of the impulse to draw cards from the right hand or the left. Ancient Tarot card readers believed a person draws their fate with their own two hands as they draw each card as in the axiom, “Fate is in your hands.”
Combining impulse with natural inclination and the power of choice are essential qualities for understanding the connection between reading Tarot cards and sensitizing the mind to extended dimensions. A good teacher of Tarot is one who provides students with information on how to lay out the Tarot cards for readings and helps them identify the Major and Minor arcanas.
Each practitioner of Tarot cards builds a unique relationship with their deck of cards. Some Tarot readers allow others to draw cards for readings. Others never allow any hands but their own to touch their personal deck of cards.
The advanced practitioner of Tarot card reading begins to sense the total connection to the universe and the connections to astrology, numerology and the mystical dimension that lies between reality and fantasy. This is a natural progression for many Tarot card readers.
Although it is a good idea to consult with advanced Tarot card readers for instructions, eventually the student finds their Tarot card reading skills to be adequate for their needs. As readers build their innate relationship with their Tarot cards, they may find their skills have developed differently than other readers.
Because it takes a depth of sensitivity to understand Tarot cards, learning how to read Tarot is more a matter of personal growth in mystical wisdom. Each reading produces a different understanding and picture depending on the reader’s meditative skills. A reader learns that Tarot cards merely speaks of what lies in the mystical dimension of which the reader may not be aware.
In essence, learning to read Tarot cards is an in-depth study of unseen circumstances or issues brought forth through concentration on cards drawn, the nature of each card and the reader’s ability to understand the association.
