Understanding the Tarot
There is a lot of misunderstanding about what the Tarot really is. Most people think it has something to do with dark magic or some thing equally sinister. It is nothing of the sort.
The tarot is essentially a set of cards which are used to guide you. There is no preset life that you must live. Every day you make decisions which will affect how the rest of your life plays out. What we do is that in times of difficulty we turn to the Tarot for guidance.
It is a way to connect with your higher self which is so much more in tune with the spiritual universe from which we all stem. We are sent signs in everyday life which we ignore, so when we want help it is difficult to know how to ask for it. This is where the tarot helps streamline things.
It is a guide. It does not predict the actual future, It only shows you what will be the possible future should you take a set of actions that you are contemplating. There is also a huge difference in the readings done by a professional and any person who is dabbling in the Tarot readings as a hobby.
So remember gettiing a free tarot reading is not always the best way to get introduced to the tarot. At the same time there are some automated online Tarot sites that offer tarot readings.

Getting a Tarot Reading Done
The process of getting a live Tarot Reading is naturally very different from getting a Tarot online reading. Naturally you have to fix an appointment, but besides that there are a few things you can do to ensure a good reading.
First free your mind from any other doubts and fears that you may have. Relax with some deep breathing and remind yourself that nothing is binding and final. You are here for guidance which is just the same as getting advice from a friend. You may or may not decide to act on it.
Get to know your Tarot medium better as a person as it will make it easier for you to connect with her or him. There is no need to tell all your inner secrets or desires to this person. In fact some Tarot readings can be done without even revealing the question to the Tarot reader.
Ask about these techniques if you want to ensure full privacy, but such readings are open to many interpretations and the reader may not be able to give a very accurate reading. It is best to share the question with the psychic medium so as to avoid any ambiguity.
Teach Yourself Tarot
The basics of the Tarot are availble on the internet should you choose to acquaint yourself with them. You can start with the two links that i have provided, but they are just the beginning in a very interesting journey.
Learning from a teacher is always the best thing for an esoteric science, but many of us will shy away from it. The cost of the course is just a small reason, we are actually unwilling to leave ourselves feeling so vulnerable with a stranger. I know I was not. I learnt from my aunt and still was reluctant to share parts of myself with her.
So it was easier for me to pick up books on Tarot and browse the net for resources. I must say initially it was very frsustrating as it was all hit or miss. The trial and error manner did pay off eventually, partly because I feel I was ready to recieve the knowledge. Anyway, today I regularly do Tarot Readings for friends and family and they say I'm quite good.
As with any esoteric science you can not take with out giving back, so I charge a single buck for my readings. That way both sides can relax and enjoy the reading without it being a financial strain. But the easiest thing to do is to get yourself a deck and start learning.

Angel Guidance Cards
For a while I had lost touch with who I was, and then by sheer coincidence an aunt of mine came into my life. She did a tarot reading for me with the Angel Guidance Cards that she happened to be carrying with her at that point of time. The card I drew was the Ocean. She told me it was time for me to get creative.
So taking a cue from that I decided to revisit my old hobby of creative writing. I thought I would write a book. Then I decided to make it a cook book, but it was getting blocked. So I decided to let the guidance come from the universe when it seemed fit.
Again a friend of mine introduced me to blogging. This was easier, just writing what I felt about. I began blogging and loved it. Then she told me there are people who have posts ghost written for them, and if I was interested I should freelance. Simple enough advice which I followed.
I discovered that at each step I got stuck the Tarot Cards would guide me. The modest success I enjoy today is in no small way because of the Tarot readings I do on a regular basis. Perhaps the best measure of its effectiveness is the fact that today I have friends asking me to do their Tarot Readings for them.
There are Angels waiting to guide us all the time. All we need to do is turn to them and ask. It has worked beautifully for me. I find that using a Tarot deck makes it easier to get the message from the Angels. Personally I use two decks - the Raider Waite and the Angel Guidance cards.
As long as you trust the cards and your guardian Angels you will get an accurate reading. So go ahead and speak to the universe that is waiting to hear from you. Ask for help that it is willing to give you, and see how the very quality of your life changes.
Its been a while since I wrote this hub and so I am now updating it. Since I began using the Tarot cards I have added another deck to my collection. The Daily Guidance and Raider Waite are still being used, but I have also got the Life Purpose deck now. That one is also from Doreen Virtue, who I find is an excellent guide.
