Today we go through the work of a fortune teller using tarot cards. All your questions are cleared in a FAQ format below.
Q: Will the fortune teller tell my exact future?
It is unlikely that the fortune teller will be able to forecast your exact future. Your future is not set in stone. Depending on the choices and decisions you make it is possible to change a possible outcome or future event. A Tarot reading can help you with these decisions and choices; it can show hidden agendas and solutions that may have been previously overlooked. A reading can reveal aspects of the problem not seen before and enhance problem solving capabilities.
Q: What if the reading of a fortune teller tells me something that I don’t like?
If the reading shows something you don’t like then you have the opportunity to change that outcome. The Tarot tells what will most likely happen if you stay on the path you are currently travelling. If you change that path then the outcome will change. I try to make my readings empowering and positive although I will not hide anything that you should be told about.
Q: How does the Tarot work?
The Tarot cards are a tool and an experienced reader will use their interpretation of the cards along with their sense of intuition in order to convey the message to the client. Using Tarot cards makes it possible to tap into the unconscious, where all the answers lie, and bring them to the surface – the conscious. It will then be up to you to decide what to do, or not do with this information. The Tarot cards cannot tell you what to do. If you are asking a question, try not to make it too vague. A vague question can get a vague answer. The Tarot is not particularly suited to giving yes/no answers; it speaks of energies and trends rather than definites.
Q: How is it possible to conduct a reading by email or from a distance?
We are all linked together in some way through the Collective Human Consciousness or the ‘Akashic Records’. It is possible to tap into this level of consciousness and gain information. The Akasha is said to be the library of all events and responses concerning Human Consciousness in all realities. Every human therefore supposedly contributes and has access to the Akashic Records. This can be made possible by using cards, crystals, spiritual guidance, intuition and even physical sensations. The Akashic Records are said to have existed since the beginning of the planet.
Q: What kinds of questions are best suited for asking the fortune teller?
The questions should be easy and well suited for receiving clarity on problems and issues such as relationships, work, families, career, finances, well-being and even life in general. Tarot cards can be used for practical problem-solving, self-improvement, a tool of understanding – to name just a few.
Q: Why should I pay for a reading when I can get a free one?
Most free reading sites are automated or computer generated. These readings are very impersonal – rather like reading your horoscopes in a daily newspaper or magazine. Personal readings are just that – personal to you and nobody else.
Q: Me – Being My Own Fortune Teller – There seem to be a lot of different decks and I am not sure which one to buy. How do I know which deck is right for me?
If you look through the many decks that can be found on the internet or at the bookstore you may see a deck that jumps out at you. Maybe you are drawn to the name of it or the symbolism you can see or perhaps you just like the pictures and/or colours. If you don’t like the look of a particular deck then you will find it difficult to read with. Just because someone has recommended it to you – doesn’t mean it is right for you. Some decks are easier for beginners than others. Don’t just buy one because you can’t make up your mind – go away and think about it and come back another day. Get a deck that speaks to you.
Q: Do I need to buy anything else with my cards?
Some people like to keep their cards in a wooden box or a drawstring bag or wrapped in silk. Do whatever you feel is right for you. Just keep them clean, dry and out of sunlight (to prevent fading).
A reading cloth on which to spread your spread is popular but again not necessary.
