BEGINNING WITH THE TAROT

Take your tarot cards and lay them out in front of you. You will see that your tarot deck is in 2 sections. The minor 'arcana' and the major 'arcana'.

The word "arcana" means secrets or mysteries.

The minor arcana is in four suits -pentacles (or coins), swords, cups and wands(or rods) numbered 1 -10 plus the court cards usually page, knight, queen and king. The Major Arcana are numbered 0-The Fool to 21-The World.

The minor arcana represents everyday life the details of our life and its everyday occurrences.

The major arcana or 'greater mysteries' represent the archetypes of life and the soul's journey through life. These cards are very important as they represent major forces at work and lessons to be worked through these cards show the spiritual significance of the lessons in life when they appear in a reading they represent major psychological and spiritual forces are at work in the matter in question.

The study of the major arcana is an ongoing life enriching experience!

_______________________________

 

The tarot interconnects with many traditions and other esoteric and spiritual teachings such as mythology, astrology, numerology, the Kabbalah, the runes, the Chakras (the 7 energy centres of the body) colour and the Goddess.

As you learn more about the tarot and your esoteric knowledge grows, each tarot card will take on a richer meaning and you will look at the symbolism in a new light. This is the beauty of learning the tarot - it grows with you and ever surprises you and enriches your life!

CHOOSING YOUR FIRST TAROT CARD DECK:


Choosing your first tarot card deck is a very special and symbolic undertaking; you are choosing to honour your intuition and are embarking on a journey into your self and into an ancient book of wisdom. This is truly a very special day!

The range of tarot decks available is simply amazing and the choice you make is important on many levels. You will know which deck is for you the minute you see it- you will just know intuitively - follow your intuition!

If you are planning to use the tarot deck for yourself for psychic development, self-healing and to awaken your intuition and psychic gifts - work with something which speaks to you.

If however you are aiming to work with the tarot professionally as a professional reader; it is probably more beneficial to opt for a deck with more traditional symbolism - such as Rider Waite, Morgan Greer or the Swiss JJ deck to name a few. This is because it is easier to transfer knowledge to other tarot decks when you start with a more traditional one!

But as you will soon discover - collecting tarot decks does become a bit of a passion (speaking from personal experience here.... there is always a new and exciting deck you want to add to you collection - I think my collection is around 20 decks at the moment)

LOOK AT THE ACTUAL TAROT CARDS!


When you are reading anything about a particular tarot card - whether this is in book, a magazine or on the Web - take that card out of the deck and look at the card - this will help you to learn the meanings quicker as it strengthens your intuitive and psychic connection to that tarot card. This is so simple and yet so effective!

PSYCHIC SKILLS - EXPANDING YOUR PSYCHIC SKILLS

When working with your cards - a valuable tip is to put some essential oil on an oil burner to awaken your psychic gifts and intuition. Clairvoyance, psychic power and intuition are ruled by the 3rd eye chakra so it is important to use oils which strengthen this important chakra. We would like to take this opportunity to recommend the following products available to order online at this site:

Clairvoyance (see below)

Third Eye Chakra Oil - The 3rd eye is the seat of intuition and clairvoyance - it is situated between the eyebrows. It is essential when beginning meditation, psychic or intuitive work to strengthen and work with this chakra. This empowered blend will assist in activating and strengthening your psychic and intuitive gifts

WORKING WITH YOUR TAROT DECK IS A SPECIAL RITUAL:

Honour your tarot cards.

Look after them carefully.

Keep your tarot deck in a special place.

 

Before starting to work with your tarot cards, create yourself a sacred space, relax, take some deep breaths and visualise the High Priestess (Major Arcana Card II)* and acknowledge that in working with your cards you are inviting your psychic and intuitive self to step forward.

For more tips on intuitive and psychic development - see the Tarot Mysteries page

I send you blessings for your journey - the tarot has been a joy and an inspiration in my life and is a continuing journey into wholeness. Whenever I teach a beginners tarot workshop I still feel that initial rush of excitement and anticipation of when I opened my first tarot deck all over again.

With the tarot as your guide every day of your life will be enriched and the tarot will become your wise friend and counsel and you will never tire of each other!

May learning and working with the tarot fill your life with wonder!
Light & Blessings Karin Taylor,
Founder of The Thoth Tarot School, London

And Friends....Remember
THE TAROT CODE OF CONDUCT
Treat your tarot deck with respect - it is a gift from the Universe.  
Honour your deck and work with your tarot cards with integrity to help others.

Do readings only for those who want a reading- it is tempting if you feel you can help someone to try and persuade them - offer but then wait for them to take the incentive to come back to you on it -it may be their karma to find their own answers.

 

The tarot is a gift to help guide and heal others - do not misuse this power  
To do what I can (no matter how small) each day to make the world a more beautiful place to live for all living creatures.

 

 
Blessings
