If you are reading for another person, it’s best if they shuffle and cut the deck themselves. Having the querent shuffle the cards is a good way to get their energy into the reading. Ideally I recommend that you own at least two decks of cards: a public deck for clients and a personal deck just more
It happens to the best of us. Sooner or later, one or more of the cards in your deck may become damaged, especially if it is a favourite deck that you use often. I don’t think that I small amount of damage really matters. So long as you still have the card and a complete deck, you will still be able to do effective readings.
Your card today is the Six of Cups. This is the card of nostalgia. This card means that some past efforts may bring present rewards or someone special from the past may come back into your life. This card speaks of past loves, childhood sweetheart and friends. Something from that past will turn out to be of great value. You are about to take a walk down memory lane!
It is really important to practice aloud when you are learning the Tarot. This will help you to become more comfortable talking about the cards and thinking on the spot when giving a reading to another person. It will also test your knowledge and help you identify which cards you know, and which cards you need to study.
Your card today is the Four of Cups. When you see it in a reading, it means that you may be feeling a little bored or depressed right now. Perhaps you are feeling let down by something or someone and you had hoped for more? Perhaps there are others around you being negative and that isn’t helping either?
Many people who are new to Tarot find themselves baffled by all the possible interpretations for the cards. Log on to any Tarot site and you’ll see lists and lists of keywords. Every textbook offer different interpretations depending on the view of the author, and the interpretations can even seem to be contradictory at times. So what do you do?
