Tarot has had, in the past, & still a view held by some, a rather tacky Fortune Teller image. For most the mention of Tarot cards brings up an image of a woman sitting at a table, with coins around her head asking you to cross her palms with silver before she turns a card to tell you that you will meet a handsome or beautiful stranger or meet with some nasty fate.

Yet regardless of if you wish to title yourself a Psychic, Clairvoyant, Fortune teller, Tarot Reader, or Intuitive Tarot Reader etc., Tarot is a subconscious tool or means to access both the inner mind & connect to the higher mind of the user. As such, they make a wonderful tool for meditation.

Modern decks such as the ever-popular Rider Waite Smith, which my book Understanding Tarot is based on, were drawn with symbolism at its heart, symbolism which is recognised by the subconscious. Within the cards are archetypal images that speak to the mind, giving a key that allows each card to bring a message to the user which resonates on a personal level.

Within each deck lies the whole of human existence, a deck is much more than a collection of pretty cards. Tarot, like all things in life, has no power of its own, the magic lies within the user & their individual relationship, which is formed with their decks or decks (they can be a bit like boiled sweets, you cannot have just one .. )

As mentioned, Tarot are used for meditation and, therefore, are wonderful for Psychic development. For that, please see my book Understanding Tarot for details on how to use the Tarot for meditation & development. Yet, they are also used for divination, another word for fortune-telling, which means divining the future.

What is of more value is the Tarot’s ability, in the right hands, to be a tool to look into the present, to look at the whys, the what's & the what-if of where one finds oneself. If you can be honest with yourself, then Tarot can be the perfect key to understanding not just yourself, but others & your situations. They allow for a more mindful approach to situations & the seeking of solutions.

When Tarot are used within a ‘reading’ they are traditionally formed into ‘spreads’ or ‘layouts’. The most common is the Celtic Cross, a 10 card spread. When you use spreads, Tarot are used in a comparative manner, each card not only related to the position title but also to the other cards. Yet a Tarot spread can be of any design, with any amount of cards, with most readers making up their own.

Tarot helps with the delivery of Psychic insights or information via their link to the subconscious. They either prompt what is known by the user yet not realised, help to bridge the gap between the subconscious & the Spiritual Higher mind or even guides acting as a key to connection. After use, practice & dedication to the Tarot as a tool, they can become a wonderful way to enhance, develop & trust your own connection to the Spiritual.
