The Top 5 Reasons To Get A Reading

Tarot cards have been around for hundreds of years, although it has only been popular in the states since the start of the 20th century. They are used for spiritual guidance, something that could come in useful when you do not have clarity in front of you. A tarot card reading doesn’t predict your future but provides greater insight into the past, present, and future based on your current path. Readings can give you the clarity you need for your journey.

1. You Need Inspiration or Reassurance

Sometimes you need to hear that you are on the right path even during times when everything seems to be going your way. Success can be scary! Other times you may have the feeling that there is something ahead for you that you can’t quite grasp, and you need a little inspiration to see what direction to take. A tarot reading can be an excellent way to determine your goals for the coming months.

2. You Feel Like a Dark Cloud Is Following You

Have you ever felt like everything seemed to be going wrong in your life? Did you start to wonder if you had your personal dark cloud of gloom over your head? When trying times have you at your wit’s end, having a tarot card reading can help you understand the dynamics at work in your life. You may find out that you are on the wrong path, and the universe is trying to show you that a change is needed, or you may come to understand that positive change is already in progress, causing things to feel chaotic right now.

3. You Have a Decision to Make and You Need Guidance

Lucky you, you have two fantastic job opportunities, but each has its pros and cons. You wonder what you aren’t seeing and worry about what will happen if you make the wrong decision. Will you irreparably change your future if you take the wrong path? Let your spiritual support team give you some guidance. Chances are either path will keep you on the road to personal fulfillment and success, but understanding the changes that come with each could be the missing piece of information you need to feel confident in your decision.

4. You Feel Lost and Alone

In times of stress or loss, even the strongest person can feel alone. It is essential to hear that you are not alone and, even if you’ve temporarily lost your way, guidance is near. Whether you call them spirits, angels, or guides, you have your own cheering section that wants to see you achieve your highest calling and live your best life. A tarot reading can provide the reassurance to see that not only are you not alone, but you also have everything you need within you to make your life what you want it to be.

5. You Want a Fun and Exciting Experience

Maybe you feel the pull to do something new. Perhaps you and your friends heard about a positive experience another friend had with their tarot card reading. No matter your current circumstances, tarot card readings can be an exciting way to know what is coming. Never underestimate how much fun it can be to get interesting, insightful, or uplifting feedback from the spiritual realm.

A Beginner’s Guide to Tarot Cards

Many people are curious about tarot cards and with good reason. The tarot’s mysterious origins and occult ties have made many appearances in popular culture – sometimes accurately portrayed, sometimes not. And while the true story of the cards’ creation is unknown, there is evidence that they existed in some form in Egypt, China, and India. Their history is important to keep in mind; however, the tarot cards used today are less mystical talismans and more introspective guides.

The most important thing to understand about the tarot is that it is a personal tool. The cards can help you explore your goals and desires, connect with your spirituality, and examine your past choices. If you are new to the tarot, jumping straight in can be overwhelming. Remember that it is perfectly fine to go at your own pace. ― Here are a few steps you can take to get started on your journey.

1. Find a Deck You Resonate With

There are dozens of decks you can choose from, and the selection is continually growing. When considering each deck, here are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • Reverse Reading: Some decks are designed to be read differently when their cards appear reversed (upside-down). This means your readings may be more complicated, but can also provide increased flexibility. At SoulTopia, we say, if reading reversals makes sense for you take it. If reading reversals does not resonate with you, then leave it.
  • Minor Arcana: Of the 78 cards that usually make up a deck, 56 are designated as the Minor Arcana and are divided into four categories: cups, wands, swords, and pentacles (sometimes called “coins”). Some decks have illustrations for every card, while others simply portray the number and suit. Decide which approach you prefer.
  • Art: This may seem superficial, but the artwork is vital to your experience. Oftentimes, people find themselves initially drawn to the images. Since part of reading well means bonding with your deck, you should look for cards that you find beautiful and match your personal aesthetic.

Once you’ve decided on a deck, it’s time to get to know it.

2. Create Your Sacred Space

Reading the tarot is a lot like meditation. You want to be deeply connected to both yourself and the spiritual energies around you. To do this, veteran readers recommend creating a sacred space before you read.

If you use the tarot as part of your worship as many Pagans do, you can create a Sacred Circle or invoke the Goddess or Watchtowers. If you don’t adhere to a particular religion but still consider reading an important spiritual practice, you can light incense or arrange crystals to create a calming effect.

If you’re doing this just for fun, that’s fine too – put on some relaxing music or do some deep breathing exercises to help you get comfortable. A sacred space is about putting yourself in an open state of mind so you can ask effective tarot questions and consider all possibilities in a reading.

3. Read as Often as Possible

Try out different spreads. Consult books, but don’t feel restricted by their advice. As you read, you’ll notice patterns emerge and certain feelings about each card. Trust your intuition. The cards speak on a profoundly personal level, and you’ll understand their language better with each reading. A simple way to get in the habit of reading is to draw a card each day and think about how it relates to your current circumstances.
