When you think of a tarot reader, you might imagine a very spiritual person slowly shuffling a pack of cards, surrounded by candles, crystals and other psychic paraphernalia. However, in reality, just about anyone can read the tarot if they want to. Becoming a tarot reader doesn’t require psychic ability, but it does require an arsenal of others skills…
Talented tarot readers tend to be really skilled at tapping into their intuition and using their inner wisdom to their advantage. Every time they draw a card, they’ll use their intuition to enhance their existing knowledge of the card’s meaning. By combining their inner voice with their expertise, they can gain a better insight into what the card means for the person in question.
When reading the tarot for someone else, a gifted tarot reader must show compassion to the person they’re reading for. They must be sympathetic and understanding. Under no circumstances should a tarot reader be judgemental, even if they hear stories or opinions they frown upon.
Tarot reading requires a wealth of knowledge and expertise. In order to do an accurate reading, you’ll need to understand the meaning behind each card and know how these cards can affect the person in question. As a result, you need to be an extremely determined person with bags of perseverance. If you’re the type of person to give up at the first hurdle, tarot reading probably isn’t for you.
If you’re in the very early stages of your tarot reading journey, there are plenty of things you can do to expand your knowledge of each card’s meaning:
- Draw a card every day. Take 10 minutes to study it and try to determine what it could mean for you. Once you’ve spent time contemplating its meaning, use a trusted tarot book or online resource to see what the experts say about the card in question
- Book regular readings with gifted psychics. This will give you an insight into how other readers operate
- Talk to other tarot readers about their own experience
- Read, read and read some more
