Reading Tarot Cards - Basic Concepts

Tarot card readings have been around ever since the concept of divination has, they have been used primarily used for divination purposes. Divination is said to be the art of accessing information which is not usually available to people using only our five senses. Tarot cards have also been used in different ways such as: working the tree of life, divination and even spell work.

For those who are starting to learn more about reading tarot cards it is often recommended to use a Waite-Rider deck because it is the easiest one to read and work with. There are other two decks of cards which can also be used toward peace three main purposes, these are called Morgan-Greer and Thoth decks.

Before you use your deck of cards it is very important to personalize them for your own use, this process is also known as "keying the cards" -- this process is what ultimately allows tarot spells to work because after such a process that cards are linked to concepts and elements in the universe. Because tarot cards are said to be linked to physical things in the universe after keying and rearranging the cards you are also rearranging things in the physical universe. A tarot deck which hasn't been personalized will work just fine however, those which had been keyed will obviously be more accurate.

You can also use what is called a signifier, this is a card which stands for a question or a person, it often signifies the question we want to have answered. According to recent findings regarding signifier cards, most of the people who use tarot cards for divination purposes do not use these signifier cards which represent a problem to those who want to have an accurate answer to the question, not using this card will make the reading less accurate because the answer will be given in a more holistic way instead of referring to the specific question being asked or about giving specific information about the person who resorts to this reading.

When it comes to interpreting the meaning of the cards you can acquire books which I will provide the meaning to each and every card, giving a meaning to each card is something that can't be explained briefly however, you can study the cards themselves which have been printed with specific symbols that provide a concept, for instance in the Waite-Rider deck to four of spades shows a man resting over a sword, a sword often represents problems or issues a person has, the demand who rests over the sword means that the person should let to his or her issues come to rest instead of dwelling on the past. Just like this card the rest of the cards can also be interpreted if you pay special attention to the objects and figures each one has, acquiring the book which provides basic information about the deck of cards you possess is a basic tool which will help you understand what the cards are trying to tell you.
