Why You Need the Tarot Now More Than Ever!
Imagine being able to take a deck of cards, throw a few of them on the table, and solve your most desperate problems or gain guidance to improve your life from what you see. It sounds impossible, but that’s what you can do with the deck of Tarot cards.
Nobody is sure of their source, but they seem to have developed in fifteenth-century Italy. They came in different formats, but eventually evolved into a set of 78 cards with three sections.
The most famous section is the 22 cards numbered from 0 to 21 called the Major Arcana or “important secrets.” Each card features a drawing of a concept or personality ranging from lovers to justice.
The second section is the Court Cards which is like the face cards of a deck of playing cards, but each of the four suits has four, rather than three cards.
Finally, there are the Pip Cards. These are four suits of cards numbered from one to ten. Originally they were simply numbered cards, but in 1910, a deck created by A. E. Waite and Pamela Coleman Smith added drawings to these cards, too. The Pip Cards and Court Cards are collectively called the Minor Arcana or “lesser secrets.” The suits of the Minor Arcana are associated with the four classical elements—Air, Earth, Fire, and Water—that were popularized by medieval alchemists.
The next phase of working with the Tarot is a multi-card meaning. As you concentrate on a question, mix the cards and draw three of them. The first gives you information from the past that is important to understanding the background of your question. The second gives you information about the present with advice on how to move forward. The third reveals the final outcome. If it’s positive, it shows what is likely to happen if you follow the Tarot’s advice. If it’s negative, it reveals what may happen if you don’t take the advice.It is the imagery found on the cards that makes the Tarot such a powerful and potent tool for growth and change. Today, there are hundreds of Tarot decks available. Find one you like that draws you to it. Spend some time becoming familiar with the cards. Then, simply mix the cards while asking an important question and draw a card. Look at the image on the card. What does it mean to you? Let your creativity and imagination flow. Working with the Tarot can help improve these areas in your life, too.
You can also use the Tarot without asking a question. Simply draw a card from the deck and meditate on its meaning. Doing this in the morning can give you advice for the day. Do it on the first day of a month for guidance for the month.
If you’re becoming interested in understanding the Tarot more deeply, fantastic! There are many wonderful beginning books on the Tarot. I suggest you try a few and see which are the best for you.
Tarot readers, such as the ones at California Psychics, go to an even deeper level. By studying books and using their intuition, they come up with very precise meanings for the cards. They then put them in elaborate layouts called “spreads.” The position of a card in the spread modifies its meaning. Its relation to the other cards also provides richer interpretations. The result is a powerful, in-depth reading you can use to gain insights into any issue, empowering you and giving you the opportunity to make your life what you always wanted it to be.
“A psychic sees things from the outside perspective. We, as humans, have a difficult time stepping outside the box and looking at things from a very neutral standpoint.” – Psychic Lacy ext. 5494
Because of the Tarot’s powerful imagery, you can use the deck by yourself. However, if you just want to get in-depth guidance and information, you’ll find that many of the California Psychics use the Tarot and can get that information for you! Whether you want to learn about a new job, your love life, your career, your friends or family or virtually any other area, a Tarot reading can help you understand and turn your life around!
“It helps to have an advisor look at things intuitively for you to see if there are any blocks they might be able to help you remove or any insight they may be able to give you from your guides to help you along your path.” – Psychic Giselle ext. 5220
