Tarot cards help us take the future into our hands. If you want to make some necessary changes in your life, tarot can give you some valuable insight.
Thinking of doing your own tarot card reading? It can be a difficult task to complete for beginners. As such, you will need some helpful pointers.
Obviously, you should take the time and get familiar with the cards. There are many tarot deck types, but cards don’t change meaning from deck to deck.
After you’ve done that, you’ll want to avoid the following four mistakes. They can really affect your reading.
1. Not Listening to the Cards When Doing Your Own Tarot Card Reading
As much as anyone would like to give their own interpretation on the cards they draw, that’s not how it works.
When doing your own tarot card reading, you should not look for convenient answers. You would just be lying to yourself.
Either keep a level head during the process or have a professional do the reading for you.
If you really want to read into the future without being biased, try doing a reading for somebody else.
You get the chance to practice your technique and remain unbiased when it’s your turn.
2. Not Accepting the Meanings that Are Given to You
If you’re in any way familiar with tarot, you should know that cards can have various interpretations.
Some people use that as an excuse to sift through the meanings until they find what they need. Don’t do that.
Just like at the point above, you should accept what the cards tell you. Make it your point to listen to the whole meaning, not just a part of it.
Otherwise, you’re not getting accurate insight.
3. Overdoing It with the Readings
One reading should be enough to give you some insight on a single subject. You won’t get different answers by redoing the reading.
If you want to see some changes in your interpretation, give it time. Like fuel to a fire, you need to add more actions to your life for the future to change.
A month should be enough time for some changes to occur. You’re giving the sands of time a chance to shift in other directions.
It’s almost a guarantee that something will change in your next tarot session.
4. Being Subjective
This idea cannot be stressed enough. I mentioned at the first point that you should keep a level head when doing your own tarot card reading.
Being emotional while doing a reading can tamper with the results. Try not to interpret the cards if you’ve suffered a loss. Or are feeling discontented.
You might just end up looking for positive meanings so you can feel better about your state.
In these kinds of cases, it’s better to leave it up to someone else to read for you. Contact me here if you would like your reading to be done right the first time.
