Tarot World

Lets share it

Tarot reading is a way to answer people’s questions or counsel them of their concerns using a divination tool called tarot cards.

Tarot cards are the perfect mirror. They show the inner psyche of a person. They show you what you may not want to see, but they  tell you the truth.

The Rider Wait tarot deck consists of 78 cards divided into two groups: the major arcana, which has 22 cards, and the minor arcana, which has 56 cards. 

We divide Minor Arcana into 4 different Suits of 14 number each.

Tarot cards tend to behave like human beings and that’s why they get tired too. It is a common thing. When tarot card gets tired or when they lose the energy, they tend to give sluggish readings or readings that make no sense at all. A few times, such tired cards also end up tiring the reader and making the reading an difficult task.

The cards can get tired because they interact with the different energies of the different people you read for. 

This is the perfect time to charge them. 

 Charging them is like recharging their batteries – and what an effect such a charging process has on these cards. Suddenly, they are more sensible and are easy to read with. 

Now lets take a look at different ways of charging the tarot cards.

  • The energy of the Moon can recharge the cards really well. It is always better to charge the cards by placing them under the light of the Full Moon. 
  • The other method to charge the cards is by placing them under the sunlight of the rising sun between 6-8 AM
  • To charge the cards, it is also recommended to sprinkle a little bit of sea salt on each card and then clean them with a soft cloth. Sea salt has the quality to absorb all the negative energy that the cards may acquire over a period of time. 

Steps to follow to interpret the meaning of the card

  • Always start with the number. On every card, a number is associated with it. Use the knowledge of numerology and try to understand what information that number is trying to provide.
  • Then observe the color of the card. If most of the color on the card is white then it means that card has the power of moon and it is trying to convey message related to moon.
  • Now look at the image on the card and observe the details in it.
  • In the end, use the intuitions power to understand what that tarot card is trying to say/guide.
