How to Read Cards Intuitively.

 

       In the last blog, we talked about the differences in Tarot and oracle cards.  In this blog, I plan to give you some helpful hints to reading cards intuitively.  Starting from the top, Tarot- yes they have their own story line that the cards have that have been passed from tradition, but what if I told you that you don’t have to pay attention to the traditional meaning of the cards, or if you do, it doesn’t have to be your main focus. In Tarot the Swords, Wands, Cups, and Pentacles all mean different things just them alone. Then you have the numerology to it. Below I have provided brief meaning of the elements and numerology.

 

Swords - Logic/ Thought

Wands – Creativity/Spirit

Cups – Emotion/Feelings

Pentacles - Material Things/Money/Career

 

     

  1. Creativity and Confidence

  2. Cooperation and Balance

  3. Expression and Sensitivity

  4. Stability and Process

  5. Freedom and Discipline

  6. Vision and Acceptance

  7. Trust and Openness

  8. Abundance and Power

  9. Integrity and Wisdom          0-Inner Gifts (exp: 10,20,30,etc.)

With this simple basic knowledge, you can read Tarot; however, even without this knowledge, you can read tarot. 

 

      When I read Tarot, I don’t really pay much attention to the numbers or the elements. (Gasp! how dare I; I know!) You really don’t need them.  You can read cards intuitively whether their Oracle or Tarot.  But how? You simply listen to spirit through your gift, (clairaudience, clairvoyant, or clairsentients). When you get your first deck of cards or a new deck, you may be tempted to look at the book that comes with the deck to draw the information about each card.  If you do, that’s okay, but it is not reading cards intuitively and personally I think when people do that, they are putting spirit in a box and limiting the meaning of the cards, and the messages that have the potential to come through from spirit through your gifts.  You might ask again “How do you read cards intimately?” It’s a process. As you get your deck of cards, before looking at the book, try to sit down with them and you get to know them. You look at each card individually.  You look at colors, themes, actions, weather, and elements.  Then as you notice those things ask yourself “what do they mean to me?” Whatever or however you feel about the symbol is what will be conveyed in the reading. Spirit communicates differently to different people. For example, when I see water, I think of emotions or energy moving. When someone else sees water, maybe they think of strength and power.  Spirit will often times tailor the imagery to your meaning so they can better communicate through you. Trust me, it would be a lot easier to just have spirit speak clear English, but they don’t. So instead work on building that relationship with your guides, angels and source. (We will talk about building the relationship with Divine in another blog to come.)

 

      Tarot and oracle come from different realms, yet very similar, and will give what spirit has to say across, no matter what you choose to use. It is really just whatever you are drawn to (Oracle or Tarot), especially when it comes to knowing what deck to get.  Get the deck you feel connects with you, and you will know when it does. When I first got into card reading and I told spirit I was ready to learn. And as I was on Amazon one day, I saw a Chakra oracle deck.  In some way, shape, and form, I was drawn to it; it caught my eye. It is as simple as that. Do not over think it.

 

 

Hope this Helped,
