Live Tarot Card Reading: Understanding Tarot Cards

Tarot cards have been in existence for a very long time. The cards usually come with different illustrations. For example, there are those that come with angels, cats, astrological symbols, dolphins, and even dragons.

Types of tarot cards

The decks are usually of different types with the main types being:

Tarot of the Marseilles: also known as Marseilles deck, this is the oldest and most famous tarot card in existence. The card started being used in France during the 16th century. The card’s Major Arcana has highly evocative imagery in primary colors; however, the Minor Arcana only displays the Roman numerals.

Thoth card: it contains imagery from different sources such as Egyptian mythology. The imagery displayed brings a number of concepts together. For example, it brings together Qabalah, astrology, and numerology concepts.

Rider-Waite deck: it was published in 1909 and it’s considered as a symbolic instrument.

How to read the cards

There are two main ways of reading the cards: question and open reading.

In question reading, you ask the card questions and it guides you. For ideal results, you should ask an open question so that the card can guide you. For example, if you are having problems with your mother-in-law, you can ask the card to give you ways on how to get along with her.

You should also ensure that your question is focused. While the question should be focused, you should avoid being too detailed. For example, you can ask the card to guide you in scheduling your time and that of your kids.

You shouldn’t ask the card to guide you on how to coordinate your football and schedule time for your family. This is because this is too detailed and you won’t receive ideal solutions.

To increase the chances of getting positive results you should ensure that you ask positive questions.

Open reading addresses the larger aspects of your life rather than a specific problem that you might be going through. In most cases, this type of reading is used when you are entering a specific phase in your life. For example, the reading is used when you are getting married, graduating or starting a family.


This is what you need to know about tarot card reading. To get perfect results, you should approach a professional tarot reader. If you don’t have money to hire a tarot reader, you should be on the watch out for free services that are usually offered from time to time.
