What is Tarot?
Tarot is a system of symbolic images on cards which are used by some as a form of divination and for meditation. They have been around in one form or another since the 15th Century. One deck of cards consists of a total of 78 cards. Of which, there are 22 Major arcana cards and 56 minor arcana cards. Arcana means “hidden knowledge”. Each card has a specific meaning dependent upon where it is placed in a spread and what cards are adjacent to it in the same spread. My job as a Tarot Reader is to be able to tell you what the cards are saying in relation to your specific question. Carl Jung the father of analytical psychology believed in a collective unconscious. The collective unconscious was the name that Jung gave to deep subconscious feelings and characteristics which we all share as human beings. These provide the wellspring of symbols and archetypes from which we can understand who we are. Tarot is full of such archetypes and seems to link well to the concepts described by Jung. For whatever reason Tarot is able to draw on the Universe and our inner selves to direct person specific information to help answer your most important questions.
I believe Tarot provides a framework which can be used to analyse a problem or a specific situation. Once you provide your question, I can use Tarot to explore potential options, as reflected in the cards for the future as well as looking at energies from the past and present that could be affecting your situation. This can help you look at your life in a different way and explore things you may not have previously considered. The cards are not set in stone. They can show potential trends and opportunities or potential problems that you can then work on avoiding. Tarot gives you insight and can empower you to take control of your life.
I have found that when people think of Tarot, they think of fortune telling which can be both exciting and scary. I do not use Tarot that way. I want you to look at the cards as an amazing self-help tool, a tool for self-discovery and as a way for you to take back your own personal power. Tarot is a non-judgemental helpful guide and friend.
This does not mean that I do not think the cards have an amazing and magical energy around them, I do, that is how they work. But, I believe it is one which you control. The power and the solution is always in your hands. Tarot will provide clear and concise guidance, giving you a path forward.
I believe that Tarot is one of the most useful ways to have a detached look at the path that you following and address the issues you may be having from a different point of view. This will enable you to find the best way to navigate your life. If you do not like what you see, you have the power to change what you are doing, and the cards will reflect the change. Through my experience as a life-coach, I can offer guidance on good self-help ways to do this.
Tarot can also be used to help you build up your self-confidence. It can teach you to understand and value yourself more, with the right guidance the cards can be a very beneficial self-help tool. Tarot can provide a nice visual pat on the back as you see your path moving towards your goals. This can boost your self-confidence and help give you the energy to keep moving forward.
Tarot reading Services:
I offer tarot readings on their own as an insight into any issues you may have. You will need to provide me with your question and I will provide you with a choice of card decks for you to choose from or I can pick one which I feel would suit you best. Once I have this information I can perform the Tarot reading, send photographs of the spread and give my analysis of the cards. With all the card readings I offer, whether Tarot, Oracle or a combination, I am always happy to answer any questions that you may have regards your reading just contact me via email or telephone.
I do not read reversals. I know a lot of readers like to do this but personally I feel that the cards themselves have two sides and depending upon the cards next to them in the spread, they clearly tell their own story without the need to be reversed. My experience is that some clients are afraid of reversals. There is nothing to be afraid of in any tarot deck whether reversed or upright. The cards are there for guidance and nothing is written in stone. If you have any anxiety at all let me be your guide and help you find your path through with the help of the cards.
