oday I wanted to pop in and talk a little bit about how you can get the most out of a Tarot reading or really any kind of divination session.
There is nothing as frustrating as booking a reading, getting really excited about it, and then feeling like the reading was only meh.
I have had this experience myself and it is terrible – feels like a waste of time and money which is so frustrating.
So here are a few things you can do to make sure that you get the most out of a session:
1.) Have questions in mind beforehand. You don’t need to have every question written down, but if you have a general idea of what you would like to discuss then that keeps the reading on track and efficient.
2.) Make sure you know what you are signed up for. It is not so fun to go into an intuitive reading expecting to have Tarot cards thrown for you only to discover that the person is going to analyze your natal chart. Look at what people are offering and make sure that their approach is in alignment with what you want.
3.) Don’t lie to your reader. I am speaking from experience – we have seen it ALL. People tell their readers things that they would not tell a doctor, therapist, or clergyman – don’t waste our time and yours by beating around the bush.
4.) If, in whatever divination system is being called upon, there are special, personal, significant symbols that come up – let your reader know! This information can help her hone the reading and get even more specific.
5.) Don’t take everything your reader says at face value. Any divination system is an art, not science which means it is subjective and open to multiple interpretations. A good reader will give you several possibilities for what a card can “mean” and it is the work of both of you to figure out how those meanings do (or don’t) apply to your unique situation.
6.) Finally, get readings regularly! Each and every divination system is a language and we learn languages by engaging with them. I have often said that the best way to learn to read for yourself is to get readings from others and that is exactly right.
Find a reader that you trust and then get regular readings from them. Personally, I think monthly or quarterly readings are the way to go. And many readers at this time of year offer specials on bundles…like the one, I am offering here …so be on the lookout for that!
I have seen first hand that regular engagement with divination can bring about remarkable results AND help us make better choices, but Divination is a dance – and as they say, it takes two to Tango!
