10 Ways Tarot Readings Can Improve Your Outlook On Life
To gain any wisdom from tarot reading, you’ll need to approach the session with intention and intuition. Remember, a reading is supposed to help you gain insight and realize your full potential. There are many great positive ways a tarot reading can help you in life, from learning how to tackle your problems to point you in the right direction. Let’s have a look at each one:
1. Taking a personal journey
The tarot deck often begins with The Fool card, the symbolic starting point of your journey. Do you want to approach life with a fresh perspective or stick to your old but foolish ways? If you’re new to tarot reading, consider approaching a reading with an open mind and embrace the guidance it provides.
2. Understanding your motivation and passion
Motivation is an inner feeling that helps us to accomplish our goals. Here are the top 10 cards for motivation:
- Aces of Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles – Getting an ace indicates a new beginning in your life. The Ace card suggests a new cycle providing you with an idea on how to accomplish your goals.
- Three Wands, three Pentacles – These cards tell you the results of your efforts. As your motivation grows, you’d like to see the initial results, especially if you’re still unsure. Once you get the Four of Wands and Pentacles, you’re on firm footing.
- Nine of Pentacles – Our motivation can bring us to a place of plenty and self-sufficiency. Your ongoing success can keep you motivated to reach your goals.
- Eight of Wands – Some tarot readers call this the “motivation card” because it often provides positive results. Also, the card indicates that you’re on the right path.
- The Sun – This card brings warm and positive energy assuring good fortune. Since happiness supports your motivation, the Sun card will confirm that all your efforts are
- The Star – The card represents the inspiration that allows us to tap our potential. Also, it helps your higher-self to connect with your goals. Think of this card as a catalyst for your personal motivation.
3. Aiding your meditation
Tarot cards can enhance your meditation. You can use a session as a reflection on exploring your hopes and dreams. To reach this state, pick a card and focus your conscious mind on it. If you’re unsure on how to meditate using the card, it may be best to seek guidance from your reader.
4. Gaining insight into your choices
This is the primary reason for getting a tarot reading. Keep in mind that you won’t get a straight answer. What you will get instead are options or choices. Once you know the possible scenarios, you can then plan what course of action to take.
5. Affirming your goals
The tarot can guide you in reaching your goals through everyday confirmation. There are several ways to do this:
- Repetition – This is a process where you affirm your goals three times a day. For example, you could state your goals before breakfast, after lunch, and before going to bed.
- Experimentation – Affirming your goal can take a few moments. However, a busy schedule may require us to rush this part. You could use various methods like writing, speaking, drawing, or visualizing to speed things up.
- Believing – Belief can help you achieve your goal. However, if you start changing your belief overnight, achieving your goal may take time.
- Action – Taking action is the final phase. While this step isn’t easy, consider taking small steps before making a big one.
- Dealing with resistance – Affirming your goal is easy, but overcoming resistance is another thing. Fortunately, with the tarot’s guidance combined with your own self-discipline, you’ll succeed in your goals.
6. Resolving a problem
A tarot reading may not directly address your issues. However, it can help you come up with several possible solutions. Just remember not to ask questions answerable with a simple yes or no. Remember, short and quick answers may not get you the appropriate insight. Instead, ask:
- Issues related to your current situation
- Positive questions, not negative ones
- Questions only once; asking the same questions repeatedly won’t get you a different answer
- Questions about relationships, but only with regards to your partner or issues that concern you both
- Questions without any malicious intent
7. Getting a glimpse of the past
Tarot cards can help you remember your past actions. By remembering your past, you can gain valuable insight to help improve your current situation.
8. Discovering inspiration for creating a better future
Whether you’re trying to resolve a problem or set a goal, the tarot can provide you with options to lead you to a brighter future. Also, a reading can offer you inspiration on how to improve your life.
9. Using your intuition to gain the advantage
Tarot readers rely on their intuition. Consider doing the same. With the help of a reader, you can “feel” which options will work for you and those that don’t.
10. Learning to harness the elemental energies (air, earth, fire, and water)
The four elemental energies are well-represented in the tarot cards.
- Suit of Cups – Water symbolizes emotions associated with feelings, love, and relationships.
- Suit of Wands – Fire can imbue spiritual energy making you inspired, strong, intuitive, or creative to deal with your situation.
- Suit of Pentacles – Earth signifies your material needs like property, work, business, money and other earthly possessions.
- Suit of Swords – Air deals with your mental consciousness. Also, the suit represents your mind’s attitudes, beliefs, and thoughts.
Tarot reading is more than a divination tool. It offers helpful insight into our feelings, it presents our choices and offers us guidance to help us gain our full potential. Next time you have a reading taken be aware of what the cards signify and let them guide you. Trust your instincts. Finally, it is important to consider each spread as a chance to improve your life by setting goals and keeping yourself motivated.
