Tips for getting the most out of a tarot reading


Having a tarot reading can be an awesome experience, how do the cards do that? We like to think of tarot readings as a tool to get a wide angle look at yourself and your current situation. It can also give you insight into what steps to take in the future. But how exactly do you do that? What can you expect? And, what should you do to prepare for your tarot reading? The first thing is to know is what a tarot reading is and what it isn't.

Readings with us are collaborative. We know the symbology, numerology, and astrology of the tarot cards and you know yourself. Together we make meaning of the messages that come through.


What is a tarot reading with YesSpiral?

Tarot cards offer a short cut into your own inner guidance system. The images on the cards act as awakeners or reminders of what your heart, soul, or inner guide want you to to know and do. Readings with us are collaborative. We know the symbology, numerology, and astrology of the tarot cards and you know yourself. Together we make meaning of the messages that come through the images and our intuition. A tarot reading with us is not not a psychic reading and it is not fortune telling.


Get clear on what you want from the tarot reading

When you schedule a tarot reading it is worthwhile to spend some time to determine what it is you wish to accomplish from the tarot reading. Would you like to get some clarity on a situation on your life? Would you like to some validation on an intuitive feeling you are having? Maybe you would like some insight into your blind spots? Whatever it is, getting clear on what you want to accomplish during your tarot reading helps the reading to be more focused and successful.

Be candid

No one knows you better than you know yourself which is why getting the most out of a reading with us means working collaboratively. We invite you to open up and share what is on your mind at the start of the tarot reading. However, we know it can feel intimidating, especially if you are getting a tarot reading for the first time. So, alternatively, we can let the tarot cards start the conversation. We will lay out the cards and see what topics they bring up. Once the conversation starts to flow it is helpful that you are open, receptive, and candid about insights the tarot cards provide. Remember this is a collaborative experience.


Ask specific open-ended questions


While the tarot can answer yes or no questions, the messages the cards bring through are multifaceted and provide multifaceted answers. It is best if the questions asked are open ended and specific so you can take control of how things turn out instead of just going along with no say.


For example, you may be concerned about where you stand in a romantic relationship and ask, will my relationship last? The tarot cards might say yes with a positive card. However, keep in mind the yes answer does not cover the underlying reason why the question was asked in the first place. So, you may want to change the question to, how can I feel more secure in my relationship? or what steps can I take to have a meaningful relationship.

We will use the tarot to focus on you so you can make empowered and secure decisions as you move towards your future.



Be self-centered

While the reason you signed up for the tarot reading may be to find out about what someone else is thinking or doing, realize that you only have control over yourself and the actions you take. We will use the tarot to focus on you so you can make empowered and secure decisions as you move towards your future.


Take ownership

Many times situations in our life can be painful and traumatic. There are also times when we are a victim of our circumstances, however, taking ownership and acknowledging your role in your situation makes you the leader of your life. Even if what happened to you is unfair, taking ownership is a one way to move forward on your terms and timeline. It also helps things to move faster.


Have fun

Lastly, and probably the most important thing to remember during your tarot reading is that the messages you receive are a tool to help you work on yourself—and that it is about having fun doing it.


Let's be real, the tarot will not solve your problems or give you specific answers, only YOU can do that. However, the tarot can provide you with insight to help you make empowered and secure decisions. The only way the tarot reading will work is if you remember that you’re the only one who can implement the advice when the tarot reading is over. If you do nothing different, then everything will remain as it is and the reading "will not work".
