Tarot and Oracle decks are fascinating instruments that can be used for personal reflection and guidance. These decks have been around and they've been used as a form of divination for centuries. Tarot and Oracles are a type of divination tool used to answer questions and reflect on life and emotions while providing suggestions and actionable advice. They can be used for personal development, decision-making, and other purposes.
Tarot readings are a great tool for introspection and receiving wisdom and new perspectives toward a life challenge. A Tarot reading can help you find clarity and gain insight into making decisions with confidence. A private Tarot reading can be received in person, over the phone, or online. It is up to you how you want to receive your reading. In a reading, the cards are laid out in a specific way that helps the tarot reader understand what is going on with the person to whom they are making the reading. The cards have images and symbols that represent certain aspects of a person's life, such as love, career, health, etc.
Learning how to read an oracle or tarot deck can seem daunting if you've never done it before. If you are interested in doing your own readings, there are great decks out there accompanied by a guidebook for guidance, and with time you will get acquainted with the deck and the cards' meanings. Before starting reading you can cleanse your cards with smudges or place a crystal nearby. Then focus on your intention or purpose and start shuffling the cards, let your intuition guide you. Intention and focus are essential to any reading. Setting intentions when doing divination can help us get precise on what we want to comprehend or what we want to manifest in our lives.
You can also take tarot classes to improve your skills and feel more confident about your readings, like Vanessa Somuayina's master class on how to become a great tarot reader.
