Tarot card reading is a visual representation of internal and external changes that are possible for an individual to experience. Tarot is symbolic behavuir or vision consciously performed.
Tarot reflects these archetypal (universal patterns that are inherent in us all) situations and gives us insight into how to deal with them. Tarot indicates trends; however, we all possess "free will" to make our own choices. Tarot directly addresses the unconscious through pictures instead of words and mirrors the psyche.
Traditional Tarot decks are comprised of Major and Minor Arcana with four suits and a total of 78 cards. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of various Tarot decks today. Each person should find a deck that they resonate with, that feels comfortable and whose pictures help her/him conjure images and feelings.
In addition to Tarot decks, there are also many divination decks which do not have traditional suits and/or 78 cards. The beginner should start with a traditional Tarot deck until she/he becomes familiar with the symoblism and meanings.
You should keep your deck in a special place. Many people like to wrap the cards in a silk scarf and/or keep them in a Tarot bag or box. Be sure to cleanse your decks between clients so that you do not transfer one person's energy to another.
Ease comes with practice as with all things. The more you do it, the more easily the messages and their meanings will come to you! Just remember to say what you see, hear, feel or know when you look at the cards. Use all of your senses to divine the answers.
