Last week I saw a video advertisement for Tarot Card Reading classes. What caught my attention was that the content specified that ‘you won’t need to memorize the meanings of each card in our course to become a Tarot Card Reader’. I was taken aback. How then can one learn to be a Tarot Card Reader?
For, isn’t being a Tarot Card Reader all about Reading (interpreting) the Cards? And wouldn’t you have to know the meaning of each of the 78 Cards in Deck to interpret them right?
To become a Tarot Reader entails a thorough knowledge of each card and how to read it when it appears in a spread. Each of the 78 Cards has 7-8 different interpretations. A Reader has to be knowledgeable enough to know which one to use when, depending on the placement of the card in a Spread, and on the question asked.
It is exhilarating and unnerving to realize that, as a medium who interprets the Cards picked, you as a Tarot Card Reader could be helping people make every day, and possibly life-changing, decisions that could alter the course of their life.
Tarot Reading is not a ‘gift’ or ‘instinct’ nor a ‘blessing’ nor something you ‘pick up along the way’.
Before you embark on the journey to help someone get their answers to simplify their lives, you need to have complete theoretical knowledge of your craft. Tarot Card Reading is something to be learned, under a qualified professional, and practiced and practiced till you are good and confident enough to use it to guide people.
