If you study or read your tarot cards regularly enough, you will notice that certain symbols appear repeatedly. This reveals a common theme in the cards.
For example in the Rider Waite deck, the Yod symbol appears on a number of cards, including the Wheel of Fortune and the Tower cards.
Yod symbolises the presence of the Divine. When it appears in a Tarot card, it means that the events that are occurring are the result of divine will and blessings.
Both the Wheel of Fortune and the Tower cards refer to fate and destiny by divine will; and so you can see how the Yod symbol reveals this is a common theme.
If you are interested, check the imagery on the cards in your deck, and look up the meaning of the symbols that you see appearing regularly.
As you learn the meaning of the symbols, you will be amazed at how much this deepens your understanding of the cards.

If you would like to learn the Tarot, I would recommend that you first start learning with Rider-Waite-Smith (or Universal Waite) deck. It has very clear and relatively modern imagery. This makes the cards easier to remember and interpret intuitively.
Your card today is the Two of Swords. This card means to find peace in stressful situations. When you see it in a reading, it may mean that an impasse has been reached and there is a tense stalemate.

There’s a wonderful Polish saying in these kind of situations in life: Not my circus, not my monkeys.
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
Your card today is the Ace of Swords. This is a dramatic card! When you see it in a reading, it heralds great change is ahead. Get set for new ideas, to make bold decisions, and the dawn of a brand new day.
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 for today is the Page of Cups. In Tarot, the Pages are known as the messengers and the suit of Cups represents the love, feelings and relationships. This card has arrived to tell you that that something new and lovely is beginning!
