A tarot reading centers around the idea that the cards can be utilized to get an idea about the present and possible future events of a querent or a certain person who seeks for information.
Some people are of the view that individuals that provide tarot reading services are steered by a greater divine power like Gaia; whereas others think that the tarot cards aid them into entering their unconscious or their very own imaginative subconscious mind.
Tarot readings are usually obtained from Medieval Alchemy and from the Jewish spiritualism of Kabbalah. They are generally performed using tarot spreads. The tarot cards’ positions in the spread each indicate various facets concerning the seeker’s question and also aids in giving clear readings.
The simple spread, for example, may either include past, present and future spreads as well as a one card or a three card. This type of spread is easier for the person who will be performing the tarot reading since it provides only the basic information about a situation.
For instance, a past, present and future spread typically entails three to six cards that are arranged into three columns. The tarot reading of the querent’s past or the events that had led to the seeker’s present situation are read in the first column.
Meanwhile, the querent’s present or the events that are currently happening to the seeker are illustrated in the second column of tarot cards. Lastly, a futuristic tarot reading can be obtained from the last column.
In general, the simple spread in a reading can be used in various situations to persuade people to face their problems or to try to explain the best way to proceed in a certain situation. One should also bear in mind that the interpretation of any situation where time is concerned can also be obtained from a past, present and future reading.
On the other hand, if a querent wants a more profound explanation about their situation, then a reading may be obtained from a Celtic cross spread, which is one of the most popular spreads used by tarot card readers.
The Celtic cross is made up of cards that are spread into a cross-like figure with a line up of four cards to the side. With this type of spread, the card position is regarded as signifying a certain aspect of a situation. In this type of tarot reading, there are card positions that aid in making clear the events that lead to a present situation.
Also, there are positions in a tarot reading that provide information about what is working for or against the present situation, what actions made by the querent to influence the situation as well as its ultimate outcome.
Hence, in every tarot reading, tarot spreads are regarded well since these can aid in identifying an interpretation and also aids the querent in taking advantage of his reading. Lastly, tarot spreads aid the tarot card reader to make certain that they correctly read the cards, thus, providing all the information needed by a querent.
