A Guide to the Tarot

When you're in search for answers to pressing questions and you've decided to use the Tarot cards to find them, there are some things you should know before employing this divination method:

It's very important to make sure that you clear your mind before spreading the Tarot cards. A relaxing tune can do wonders when you have a hard time getting into a receptive state of mind.

As you clear your mind, try to formulate the question in your mind as clearly as possible. If it is vague or general, so will be the answer.

Here's a list of questions the Tarot cards CAN answer:
- What should I know about my relationship with [insert name here]?
- What should I do to get my life back on track?
- How should I tackle this work assignment?
- Where do I stand with [insert name here]?
- What option/potential life partner should I choose?

Here's a list of questions the Tarot cards CANNOT answer:
- When will I find my happiness?
- What's the meaning of my life?
- When will I marry?
- Where am I going to spend my holiday?

It's also important to know that Tarot spreads are valid for a limited period of time, usually for a few days or weeks. The lifespan of the Celtic Cross or New Year Tarot spreads is longer, spanning over months or even a year.

Maybe you're wondering why their lifespans are so short. The answer is you. You and those are you are constantly making decisions and thus changing the initial circumstances surrounding the question you've asked the Tarot. As a result, you might be tempted to spread the cards over and over again, being provided with less and less satisfying answers and gradually losing your confidence in the Tarot. It would be a pity to question its ability to help you so keep in mind that the Tarot spread is a reflection of your thoughts and feelings.

Imagine the following scenario:
Let's say you've met someone who can provide you with a clear answer to a troubling question. You get it but for one reason or another, you don't follow his/her advice and do the exact opposite. The next time you see that person and ask him/her the same question, there's a good chance s/he will refuse to give you an answer.

When the time is right, you'll find an answer to your question.
