How do Tarot Card readings work, what do the cards mean?
There are 78 Tarot Cards in a Tarot Card deck and each card has more then one meaning, depending on whether the card lay right side up or upside down. Sometimes a card can mean one thing for you and something entirely different for your friend. It depends on the layout of the cards in relation to one another and the psychic intuition of the Tarot Card reader. After many years studying and working with Tarot Cards I think that they work by tapping into our own subconscious psyche. When you shuffle the deck, the cards connect with your own psychic energy. A Tarot spread is layed onto the table, where past, present and future issues are seen more clearly. I like to start a Tarot Card Reading with a general spread covering Present Concerns, Strengths, Challenges, Romance, Family, Friends, Finances and Future. I use my psychic skills and knowledge of the Tarot to interpret the Tarot Card symbols and imagery. I also encourage my clients to ask questions for further clarification during the reading.
Give Time to Understand.
Sometimes there is a lot of information to absorb at one time. Giselle will give you a cd recording of your psychic reading when your appointment is finished. Listen to your Psychic reading again at a later date to gain greater understanding.
