#AtoZChallenge: Theme: Tarot. Alphabet 'U'





Card Talk: Shining the light on everything about Tarot




is for 

Used to

More often than not people get habituated and hooked on to Tarot Readings.
They start seeking help and answers to every major and minor issues in their life though Tarot, dulling they own powers of reasoning and decision making.

Though this dependency is great for business, a good Tarot Reader will never encourage this sort of emotional dependency and will gently wean the client off while he/she encourages and nudges them towards creating inner confidence required for independent decision making.

#AtoZChallenge: Theme: Tarot. Alphabet 'T'

Card Talk: Shining the light on everything about Tarot


is for 

Transformation

Which is the actual meaning of the Death Card.
If there is one card that gets an immediate, and horrific, reaction in a Reading it is the Death Card. The question that almost always follows the coming up of this card is ‘Is someone close to me going to die?’

Infact this card is so disturbing that to be released Decks are considering changing the illustration and renaming it Transformation.
Transformation and Change is what the Death Card is all about really. It is about the death of the old and the birth of the new. About a transition to better times, a journey that may not be very comfortable but required to better your circumstances and life ahead.

#AtoZChallenge: Theme: Tarot. Alphabet 'R'

Card Talk: Shining the light on everything about Tarot

R

 is for 

Respect


At social gatherings I am often asked if I am carrying my Tarot Deck and if I would ‘answer a few questions quickly’. 
Speaking for myself here, Tarot is not something that is to be used for fun.
It is a profession and has to be taken seriously, much like you would with any other profession. 
The guidelines for Tarot are; respect our seat (where we conduct our Readings from) our practice, our cards and our clients. 
Cleanliness in and around the area of a Reading is a must, and it always helps if you have a fixed area to conduct your Readings from. The Cards need to be cleansed/purified before and after each Reading, ensuring that the effects of the previous Readings are completely eliminated.
We need to respect the client and their questions, by never scoffing at or being judgemental about any question asked.
And yes, complete confidentiality of the Reading and non involvement is a non-negotiable must.

#AtoZChallenge: Theme: Tarot. Alphabet 'Q'



Card Talk: Shining the light on everything about Tarot


Q 

is for 

Querent

Querent is a Latin word for ‘The Seeker’ or ‘The one who seeks’ 
The person who is questioning, and recieving the interpretation of the cards is known as the Querent. Unlike popular belief, it is actually the Querent who holds the power and not the Reader. 
A Reader is just a medium who interprets the question asked by and the cards picked by the Querent.
