Please understand there are many different ways to read the tarot as there are readers and many different layouts and many different interpretations of the cards. Start with my suggestions, and after time and experience you can use your own format if you like. Tarot is more than 78 cardboard cards, it is our ability to fine tune our senses, listen to our inner voice to help us to lead a more for filling life as well as helping others at the same time. Being confident with the Tarot begins with breaking down the cards into suits and learning their basic meanings. The images and colours on the Tarot cards also facilitate us tapping into this hidden resource of our intuition. Tarot readings can be used to sort out our mixed emotions and help with business, career, personal or family life. At first all this might seem confusing, but if you stick with it and learn to break it down into smaller parts, it will be easier to understand and learn.
