Navigating Your First Tarot Reading: A Practical Guide for Beginners

Approaching your first tarot reading can be a mixture of excitement and uncertainty. Tarot cards, with their rich imagery and symbolism, offer a unique lens to view your life’s journey, providing insights and reflections. This blog aims to guide you through what to expect before, during, and after your first tarot reading, ensuring a fulfilling and insightful experience.

Before the Reading

  1. Select a Tarot Reader: Research and select a tarot reader whose style and approach resonate with you. Look for reviews or recommendations to find someone reputable and aligned with your needs. Use a trusted source like Bliss Crystals who has thoroughly vetted its Psychics and has hundreds of 5 Star public reviews of their business,
  2. Set Your Intentions: Reflect on what you wish to gain from the reading. While you may have specific questions, being open to general guidance can lead to more profound insights.
  3. Prepare Your Questions: Think about specific areas of your life where you seek clarity. Formulating clear questions can help guide the reader and focus the session. It is usually not helpful to ask for forecasts of the future such as name of a future spouse, winning lottery numbers or "fishing expedition" inquiries such as name of your first pet etc. Ask meaningful questions or statements such as "why do I feel anxious in social situations" or "how can I cope with the death of a loved one." 
Create the Right Environment:
Choose a quiet, comfortable space for your reading if it’s happening remotely. If you’re visiting a reader, try to relax and open your mind to the experience.

During the Reading

  1. Opening of the Session: Your reader will likely start by asking if you have specific questions or areas of focus. Some may begin by explaining how they conduct their readings
  2. Shuffling the Deck: You might be asked to shuffle the deck while focusing on your question or intention. This is believed to transfer your energy to the cards.
  3. The Spread: The reader will lay out the cards in a specific pattern, known as a spread. Each position in the spread represents a different aspect of your question or life.
  4. The Interpretation: The reader will interpret the cards based on their positions and symbolism. Be open to the messages, even if they’re not what you expected.
  5. Interaction and Clarification: Feel free to ask questions or seek clarification on specific cards or parts of the reading.

After the Reading

  1. Process the Information: Take time to absorb and reflect on the reading. The insights provided may require contemplation to fully understand how they apply to your life.
  2. Journaling:  Consider writing down your thoughts, feelings, and the key messages from the reading. This can help in processing and integrating the insights.
  3. Observing Changes and Taking Actions:  Be mindful of how the insights from the reading may manifest in your life. Remember, tarot readings offer guidance, but the power to effect change lies with you.
  4. Follow-Up:  If you found the session helpful, you might consider scheduling a follow-up reading in the future, especially as new questions or life situations arise.

Reflect on Your Experience

Your first tarot reading can be a doorway to self-discovery, offering a blend of counsel, reflection, and foresight. Remember, the value of a tarot reading lies not just in the immediate answers it provides, but in the deeper understanding and awareness it stimulates. Approach the experience with an open heart and mind, and let the cards guide you towards insights and pathways you may not have considered before.
