Tarot rading - what should be our aim?

Reading the Tarot is very exciting, especially in the beginning, but it's easy to get confused and discouraged if we're not sure how to read. When our goal is to be unbreakable, and we look for the sense of a card as well as the truth it shows, we make progress away from the beginning stage.

When is a Tarot reading not a Tarot reading?

Someone can ask a question and we give good, general advice in the reading. This is ok, but the Tarot can be very specific about what to do with a particular situation at a particular time. This is how it can be done.

Also, a simple technique to get started with a reading, that you can do with confidence, and that engages the questioner.

This is how you already can read cards; and the pitfalls of free-form reaadings

Even beginners can read the Tarot and I show you how you can make sense of a card, and use it to answer any question.

Next we consider free-form readings - picking a card and applying it to the questioner wihout knowing in advance what sort of information you want it to give. I think it's better and more reliable to know first what question the card will be answering. I demonstrate with an example from an Internet reading that I listened to.

Video - From now to the end of 2011

Someone asked for a video about what will happen to the world between now and the end of 2011.

The world is a big place, however, with different conditions and circumstances, but we're all people so the question asked was: What can and should we do to live better and more fully between now (the middle of August) and the end of 2011.

The answer is: the 6 of Coins; the King of Cups; and the Ace of Swords.

Video - A common Tarot reading problem solved

This is a 20-minute video about a typical problem that you might encounter when reading for yourself - or for others. We often prefer a spread to show what we need, but on our own, it can be very easy to see what we want to see.

In the video, we discuss how what we want might be exactly what we need - and how philosophy gets us beyond the beginner stage; and this is a good thing.

The next podcast will be about spreads, and how if you find it hard to read a particular layout, it's not you - it's the spread.
