Why Tarot Card Reading Might Be More About You Than the Cards

Tarot card readings have become popular lately, especially among busy urban folks. Whether people are intrigued by its accuracy, looking for tarot card reading as a hobby, or are simply curious, tarot card reading is having a renaissance. Though many seek a glimpse into the future, tarot cards are not a supernatural portal that serves this purpose. Many might consider it arcane divination; however, tarot card reading is anything but. 

What Are Tarot Cards?

Tarot decks typically contain 78 cards, divided into two distinct groups: The Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana:

  • The Minor Arcana, which has 56 cards, resembles standard playing card decks with four suits (though in the case of tarot cards: cups, wands, swords, and pentacles) and features numbered and court cards (such as Kings, Queens, Jacks, etc.).
  • The Major Arcana, which has 22 cards, depicts figures familiar from popular culture, such as the Devil, Death, the Wizard, the Lovers, etc. 

The decks in the Minor Arcana deal with the nuances of our daily life. On the other hand, the cards in the Major Arcana represent significant life events. For instance, they may be involved when people look to Tarot Card reading to determine their future actions. The cards in the Major Arcana may also reveal significant persons or characters that greatly influence our lives.

Each card, whether belonging to the Major or Minor Arcana, is packed with information. Though each card is open to interpretation, the illustrations and numbers are based on numerology, the Kabbalah, and astrology to provide ever-deeper levels of meaning. 

The techniques in card reading vary depending on the reader’s level of expertise. In its most fundamental form, tarot cards express the cycles in our lives. Every shuffle and how they are laid out reveal events, trials, and obstacles in our lives. On the other hand, the cards from the Major Arcana will reveal a significant event, something about ourselves, or symbolize more general issues.

The method of interpretation is complex. However, reading tarot cards brings more clarity to those seeking it. Clearer pathways are revealed to people who feel lost, enabling them to ask more profound questions to help them determine the next steps.

Relevance, Resonance, and Revealing the Message About You

There are many kinds of Tarot decks, with the Rider-Waite deck being the most popular for beginners. Each card is splendidly illustrated and packed with symbolism and meaning. Considering the infinite number of combinations and possibilities, one might ask oneself if the messages reveal themselves by chance. By looking at tarot reading this way, the question becomes: “Is the tarot card reading relevant to my situation?”

The quick answer is yes. By strict definition, relevance means if the message revealed by the tarot cards is appropriate to your situation. As the number of possible spreads and revelations of tarot cards are infinite, so are the endless combinations of life events that may result in a specific event. As mentioned earlier, tarot card readings do not foretell events; the spread and interpretation are all about exploring possibilities. For instance, revealing the Wizard Card in a Celtic Cross spread may not necessarily indicate a literal wise man appearing the next day. Still, it’s all about the life-defining role of a person of authority shortly, which could be a parent, a leader at work, or any respected figure.

Tarot cards sum up the human experience revealed by their spread. An expert reader can connect these revelations with a holistic view of the world as it relates to the lives of those who seek the readings.

Resonance and revelation may or may come after the reading session. Clients sometimes call back and tell us that certain aspects of the card reading rang true, were appropriate, and made sense of what was happening. In the end, clients who receive tarot card readings feel reassured and confident, knowing that they are prepared to take on life’s apparent surprises.
