Learning the magical art of Tarot reading can be an incredibly powerful and fulfilling process. By familiarising yourself with each card and learning to decipher the meanings behind them you can gain a fascinating insight into your future and the opportunities that lie before you.
There will probably come a time in your Tarot reading journey when you start to question whether you’re in a position to read other people’s cards as well as your own. Whether you want to do readings for your friends or make money from your skills, here are 5 signs you’re ready to read Tarot for others.
You’re happy to take on the responsibility that comes with being a reader
Reading other people’s Tarot comes with plenty of responsibility. Since you’ll be the one drawing each card and explaining the meaning behind them, it’s up to you to accurately describe the card’s significance to your client’s life.
Whether you draw Justice or the Six of Pentacles reversed, you’ll be expected to explain the meaning behind each card and help your client relate this to their own journey.
You’re extremely confident in your own abilities
If you’ve been doing your own readings for a while and you know each card like the back of your hand, it could be time to start reading other people’s Tarot. Although it’s only natural to be nervous when put in the spotlight, you should feel an overall sense of confidence and excitement at the thought of sharing your abilities with the world.
You’re inspired by a desire to help people
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make money from your talents and gain recognition for your skills but the financial and popularity benefits that come with being a Tarot reader certainly shouldn’t be your primary inspiration.
So before leaping into professional Tarot reading, ask yourself why you really want to venture down this path. If you have a strong desire to help and you’re keen to use the Tarot to enrich and improve their lives, it sounds like reading other people’s cards could be for you. But if you have pound signs in your eyes and simply want to get rich quick, pick something else. Tarot reading certainly isn’t a fast track to wealth.
You live and breathe the Tarot
Whether you’re used to carrying a packet of cards around in your pocket or your phone is overflowing with Tarot apps and spiritual guidance, you live and breathe the Tarot.
You’ve used your own readings to propel yourself forward through life and while you know the Tarot will never tell you your future, you let it inspire you to make the best of the opportunities that lie before you.
You let other people read your Tarot
It’s often said that practise makes perfect but it’s equally important to watch and listen as well as practise. It doesn’t matter how many times you read your own Tarot, if you’re unfamiliar with other readers’ processes, you’ll struggle to read for friends, relatives and clients. Make sure you let other people read your Tarot from time to time. By doing so, you’ll gain inspiration from those with more experience than yourself and you may learn some tips and tricks to gain that extra je ne sais quoi for your readings.
