How to guess on the Tarot cards: the choice of the deck, the rules of divination, the situation, love, the future
Tarot is an old system of maps that depicts archetypal symbols common to all mankind. The layouts on the Tarot cards help to analyze the problem of interest, to highlight the secret corners of the personality, to predict the development of events in love relationships.
The interpretation of the cards that fell in the scenario can be carried out in accordance with the general ideas about specific Arcana, and in accordance with the intuition of the diviner.
Tarot, like astrology, is based on the concept of the four elements. The complete set of the deck consists of Senior and Junior Arcana (the word "lasso" translated from French means "secret").
Senior Arcana endowed with more weighty prestige than the younger.
To the Elder (or Great) Arcana there are 22 cards, each of which has its own sequence number and name. The numbering starts with map I (Mag).
The Arcane The Fool is listed at number 0. The Senior Arcanas reflect the basic images and concepts inherent in a person of any epoch or location (archetypes).
This part of the deck is divided into four categories, fundamentally different from each other according to the elements:
- The suit of the Rods is Fire;
- The suit of Swords is Air;
- Suit Cups — Water;
- Pentakley suit — Earth.
Conventionally, the first two elements are considered more active, masculine. Water and Earth are female.
At the same time, Water and Fire are emotional elements, and Earth and Air are logical and intellectual.
In each of the Arcana Tarot symbols laid, not always clear at first glance. But unconsciously, most of the signs can still be unraveled.
For example, on Arkan Pentakley suit often appear grapes. In everyday consciousness, it is associated with fertility and abundance.
The Tarot system displays these signs already embedded in the unconscious person.
The ranking gradation of the Minor Arcana indicates the level of personal maturity of the character depicted on the Arcane. Guys are usually young and inexperienced people, often teenagers.
Kings — persons vested with authority and authority.
In order for the cards to give correct predictions, the correct selection of a deck that is suitable for a guessing power engineer is necessary. Before the first fortune-telling cards are charged.
After divination, the deck requires cleaning.
You should choose the deck, the drawings of which are closest and understandable to the diviner. At the initial stages it is recommended to use simple maps whose images are easy to interpret.
For example, this is tarot "Era of Aquarius"or the famous Ryder-Waite deck.
To understand which deck is closer, just look at one of its Arcana and try to interpret its meaning without resorting to leadership. If fantasy, when looking at a certain card, responds with a stream of images, you can stop the choice on this deck.
The more associations a card set causes, the easier it will be to carry out divination with it.
It is not recommended to purchase cards in a state of agitation about any situation. It is useful to have two decks — universal and specialized. For each situation of interest a special deck can be selected.
If you are concerned about monetary, material issues, the Tarot of the Dwarfs will do.
For layouts on the love relationship is well suited Taro Manara. Universal decks will help find the answer to the question of any vital sphere.
This is Tarot Ryder-Waite, Golden Dawn, Marseilles Taro.
Equally important is the aspect of convenience and quality. It is more pleasant to one person to hold large cards in hands, to another — small ones.
Cards must be carefully stored. They are not allowed children and pets.
For them, you can sew a bag or buy a beautiful box. Inside you can put a stone for cleaning the deck of unnecessary information.
Amethyst or obsidian is well suited for this purpose.
Periodically, a deck of cards is cleaned from accumulated. To do this, they must be put on the windowsill on the night of the full moon (so that they get the moonlight).
In other lunar phases for cleaning the map, you can decompose in one row in order, and leave it to lie overnight. If the deck is old and is no longer used, it is traditionally burned.
Charging the deck is necessary in order for the cards to adjust to the energy of the fortuneteller. You can charge the deck, putting it on the first night after the purchase under the pillow. This will allow the cards to absorb the energy of their owner.
In the morning, the deck is removed and placed in a bag.
You can hold a complex rite of blessing and tarot cards. For the sacrament will require:
- candle purple;
- deck of cards;
The rite of blessing cards is carried out as follows:
- 1. First, light a candle and burn incense.
- 2. A deck is placed in front of you.
- 3. Then you need to take a deep breath, and, exhaling on the cards, say: "I give you a breath of air, take its purity".
- 4. The deck quickly and accurately (so as not to burn cards or hands) sweeps over the fire of a candle. Words pronounced: "Now take the heat of the fire".
- 5. Cards are lightly sprayed with water with the words: "I give you water, the true source of life".
- 6. After that, the card must drop a few grains of salt, saying: "I give you the land on which the seeds of your strength will grow".
- 7. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the deck is taken up and the words are pronounced: "Let the knowledge of tarot penetrate into my soul and mind. May these knowledge cards open for me".
- 8. After this, you should meditate on the cards for 15 minutes, trying to discern their inner meaning.
- 9. The deck should lie near the candle until the wick burns out.
Beginners useful to start the practice with the simplest layouts. During the first sessions it is recommended to ask the deck about those questions in which the guessing person is not emotionally involved.
Divination is held at home. Special training in most cases for before sessions is not required.
To begin the first session of the divination on Tarot follows from a simple question that does not represent a special interest. Divination is carried out as follows:
- First, it is necessary to abandon the situation emotionally, to internally take the position of a detached observer.
- The deck is mixed. At the same time, the question of interest is mentally asked.
- One card is drawn (or several, if this is required by the alignment).
- The card is laid out on the table face down. If there are several Arcana in the scenario, they are arranged in accordance with the position in the scenario.
- The card turns over and corresponds with the interpretation.
In some hands, a card called "significator". This Arkan stands for the most questioner.
He can be taken both from the deck on which fortune telling is being held, and from a third-party set of cards.
Usually the significator is chosen from among the Minor Arcana according to the age of the fortunate:
- Page — boy or girl;
- A knight is a young man;
- The Queen is a woman over 25 years old;
- The king is a man over 25 years old.
Before guessing on the Tarot cards, it is necessary to make an informed decision about the appropriateness of the session. After fortune-telling, there should be no regrets no matter what Arcana fell out.

Tarologists recommend beginners to keep a diary of divinations. To do this, start a special notebook. It records the date of the session, the question of interest and the fallen Arcana.
This will help to consider the answer of the deck over time, to find new details in the scenario, to systematize the experience.
One of the most important rules of the divination to tarot is that you can not guess several times on the same situation. This is one of the most common mistakes newbies. If you disturb the deck several times on the same issue, the cards begin to tell lies.

The story of one of our readers Alina R .:
Money has always been my main concern. Because of this, I had a bunch of complexes. I considered myself a failure, problems at work and in my personal life haunted me.
However, I decided that I still needed personal help. Sometimes it seems that the matter is in you, all the failures are only a consequence of bad energy, the evil eye or some other evil force.
But who will help in a difficult life situation, when it seems that all life is rolling down the slope and passing by you. It is difficult to be happy working as a cashier for 26 thousand rubles, when you had to give 11 for renting an apartment.
What was my surprise when my whole life suddenly changed for the better overnight. I could not even imagine that one could earn so much money that at first glance a knickknack could have such an effect.
It all started with the fact that I ordered a personal one.
