So maybe you’ve been reading the Tarot for a while now but you feel stuck in your readings. Or maybe you’re brand new and have no idea where to start! Either way, I have a solution.
It’s very important to interview your deck. Some will also tell you to cleanse it and sleep with it under your pillow for some length of time before you even pull cards. That’s a bit much in my opinion! But a good shuffle and an interview go a long way.
The most important part of reading Tarot is your intuition, in my opinion. Nothing beats it! I have the best readings when I just spout off whatever pops into my head looking at the cards. But, it doesn’t hurt to have a foundation of the symbology. Especially if you ever feel a little stuck looking at a spread.
Let’s talk about the Celtic Cross, the most famous Tarot spread. Let’s also talk about why I personally dislike it! I know, that’s a very shocking opinion to have. But bear with me, I have my reasons.
This deck surprised me when I first opened it. I expected space and got… collages? It’s very unusual.
Reading tarot is easy to learn but difficult to master. One thing that I really want people to know is that what you get from the card is more important than its accepted meaning.
