The Tarot As A Psychic Tool

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThere are basically to forms of psychic reading. Some readings are readings are done with the use of ‘tools,’ while others are done without. Psychics all have different abilities, for example some are clairvoyant, while others are clairaudient. Each psychic uses their own intuitive gifts to bring us messages from their guides and ours. I will further discuss these psychic abilities in a future blog.

Reading with tools is known as divination. The list of popular psychic tools is extensive. Tarot cards are probably the most well-known and widely used psychic tool. The Tarot has been around since the 18th century and is used for the purpose of divination, psychic prediction and contacting spirit guides. I use Tarot in my readings, as they guide me, almost like a road map. There are many classes and books available to learn more about Tarot and how to do cartomancy readings.

There are many different modern versions of the Tarot, depending on the author’s beliefs and point of view. Traditionally, the Tarot deck consists of 78 cards, which makes up a Major Arcana and Minor Arcana. Each card depicts a scene or image with a unique archetypal or symbolic meaning. Not only does each card depict its own inherent meaning, but its meaning is influenced by the spread the reader uses, its unique placement in the spread and the meanings of adjacent cards. In some reading styles, a reversed card may further indicate the opposite of its usual meaning.

The Major Arcana is comprised of 22 cards, numbered from zero to 21. It is said that the cards of the Major Arcana represent life lessons, karmic influences and the big themes that are influencing the reader’s life and soul’s journey to enlightenment. Major Arcana cards are major for a reason, they are there to tell us about a major part in our life that is going to be changing, or that we need to change for ourselves. As in life, some of the card meanings are positive; while some are negative. Every card stands for something. For instance, the World card is one of the best cards you can get, it’s about success, fulfillment, and the end of a cycle.

The Minor Arcana is divided into four suits, similar to a regular deck of playing cards. There are 56 cards, with 14 each in four suits: cups, pentacles, swords and wands. Each suit also corresponds to an earthly element. Cups represent water, pentacles are earth, swords are air and wands represent fire. In each suit there are court cards, the court cards are the King, Queen, Knight and Page. The numbered cards are from one to 10.

Just like the Major Arcana, each card means something in the Minor Arcana. The Minor Arcana represents our day to day lives, the everyday details. For example, anything that has to do with emotions is the domain of the cups or water suit,. The swords or air suit represents the mental realm and reason, while the wands or fire suit represents spirit, creativity. The pentacles or earth suit represents earthly, tangible items, money, and possessions. One of my favorite cards is the Two of Cups. It is about love, relationships, and two becoming one to create a harmonious energy.

Tarot readings are unique for each intuitive and client. The interpretations vary and you could get the same reading from two different psychics with the same card spread and set of questions. Tarot isn’t just about reading cards and meanings, but also about listening to the intuitive messages that come through. Tarot is typically only used as a guide, but in the end, it’s the psychic who is doing the reading and relaying messages who fully makes the reading into what it is.
