Finding the Right Reader
A notion that I have noticed in the world of tarot is that some people forget to interview or connect with their tarot readers before purchasing a reading. As a result, the reader isn’t ready to connect to the situation without a context — if context changes anything in the situation — and delivers a reading that is less than satisfactory. Watch for the specifications of what you get.
* Is the reading guaranteed?
*How long has this person been working in the world of tarot?
* Do you resonate with the tone of their writing or their background experiences shared?
* Is this a person you would feel comfortable entrusting with your innermost secrets and concerns?
* Are psychic gifts listed? Clairsentience[feeling], clairvoyance[seeing], clairaudience[hearing], claircognizance[knowing], clairalience[smelling], clairgustance[tasting], empathy, psychometry, etc?
The right type of reader will first listen to your problem without bias. They will be more than happy to get familiarized with your situation before breaking out their working tools. Look for a person that enjoys reading the tarot and helping people. Know that even though metaphysics isn’t recognized as a science, it still offers valuable insight into your life. The purpose of the tarot reader is to mediate the messages contained in the serial appearance of the cards in order to deliver those messages to you. They are the link between the archetypical knowledge contained inside the cards and the wealth you obtain from them.
The right tarot reader will offer solutions to problems without dramatizing the scene or loading you with negative energy.
It is my personal belief that a tarot reader should seek certification or courses to validate their skills before offering ‘professional’ tarot readings. It makes a difference because your clients will appreciate the extra steps taken to ensure a positive experience in a tarot reading. There are countless web sites on the internet that offer this style of accreditation, but I recommend stopping by your local new age magic shops and inquiring about tarot courses / accreditation.
Types of Readers to Avoid
Avoid purchasing random tarot readings from Ebay or Etsy if you haven’t talked to the reader previously. It is very important to have personal rapport with your reader. If they have no sense of who the person is that they are reading for, they are very likely to send you generic definitions or keywords of the cards with absolutely no added context. Read the fine print!
About The Author:
I am a clairvoyant, clairsentient empath with a special focus on the tarot. I come from a line of psychics with the ability to medium channel. My journey in the tarot started at 12 and remains a very important aspect at my life, just short of 24. Now I blog actively about it at http://blog.monicalaura.com/ , where I also blog about other areas of spiritual awakening and self-empowerment. I consider myself a perpetual student of metaphysics and spiritual development. I have a life calling to help people though my psychic gifts, and I do so with a lot of love.
You can book tarot readings with me after looking through http://tarot.monicalaura.com/ for rates; I offer tarot readings for 15, 30 and 60 minutes depending on what you need. My focal areas of expertise are in love, finance and interpersonal connections. Interpersonal connections define how somebody else — not the Querent — feels or thinks about the Querent or another person.
If you missed Part I of Monica’s tarot series you can read it here. And as a token of love for Kisses & Chaos readers, Monica is offering her 60 minute tarot readings (normally $65) for a rockin’ $45! Just mention K&CTAROT when you schedule your reading.
