No matter how carefully we pave our way through life, we can never be sure of what the future will hold for us. The only quality that is certain about the future is its uncertainty. In the hope of finding some answer, some people try their luck in psychic advising and mystification, of which tarot reading is a significant part.
This post is a quick guide about some of the important aspects of tarot cards. Hence, if you are intrigued by tarot card reading and wish to explore more about it, this article is meant for you.
What Are Tarot Cards?
There are 78 tarot cards, and any genuine tarot card reader will use all of them. Some of the tarot cards are similar to what you will find in an ordinary deck of cards, including four suites with cards ranging from number 2 to 10 and aces, jacks (knights), kings, and queens.
Besides these, it contains a set of royal cards called pages and 21 unique archetype cards. The archetype cards are divided into two sets: minor and major arcana. All these cards, when combined, form a complete tarot card set.
What Are The Types Of Tarot Card Reading?
There are several tarot card reading methods; some are said to be more accurate than others. However, we have covered the two of the most common methods people encounter.
- In the first method, the psychic shuffles and divides the deck into three sets. The person getting the reading has to pick a card from each deck and put it face-up on the table. The card on the left depicts the past about the particular reading. The middle card is associated with the present, while the third card represents the possible future.
- In the second method, the deck is again divided, but this time in four decks. As previously, the person has to pick up a card from each deck. The first three cards from the left represent the past, present, and possible future, respectively, and the fourth card represents a viable solution for the question of the particular session.
It is a widespread belief that the main purpose of tarot reading is to predict the future. However, this is not entirely true. This psychic advising method intends to offer guidelines to help you make better decisions for your future. If that seems like something you want, feel free to explore more about it.
