tarot card reader

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : why do tarot card readers look at you while they shuffle the cards?

are they observing your reaction, checking your aura, trying to hypnotize you? what?

also, why do they ask you to blow on the cards before they shuffle them?

Answer by ♏
not true for every tarot reader

Answer by red_haze
Blowing on the cards: to entertain you, I think 🙂

They look at you when they shuffle the cards so you know they’re not looking at the cards and shuffling them into positions they may want them to be in.

Answer by Chrisdyann

lol yeah i get that too or make me write my name seeing my writing it fine as long they don’t ask you any questions

Answer by Annie
It might just seem polite to them – like they don’t want to freeze you out or ignore you. I don’t think it’s a good idea to try to “pick up” things about people – I think it’s too easy to make incorrect assumptions about people. I’ve got the best results giving telephone readings so that I can’t be distracted by what the person looks like.

Personally I don’t shuffle the cards myself; I prefer that the client do that. I have never asked anyone to blow on cards and I’ve never heard of it being done either; it sounds both unhygienic and superstitious.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : What is a Tarot Card Reader’s “reading style”?

I have been reading tarot cards for awhile now & I was asked how friends would describe my reading style. Can someone please elaborate? FYI if it helps, I do the Celtic Cross tarot spread.

Answer by benthic_man
Something between pathetic attempt to have faith in the supernatural coupled with an inflated sense of self-importance, accompanied by a soupcon of inferiority complex.

Answer by Phoenix Rising
It’s all just a cold read on an Rorschach. Tarot cards don’t predict anything.

Answer by Miss 6
Everyone has their own style. Personally I can’t stand readers who use the Celtic Cross spread for EVERYTHING. I think that its OK to just pull some cards and not have each position mean something. If you’re comfortable using the CC spread than that is fine. Tarot has foundations and rules but after that you can make it your own.
I have found people who only use the CC spread usually has only been reading cards for a short while and think that’s the only way to do a reading. Again nothing wrong with it, just that there is so much you can do with cards if you break out of the cc spread!

Answer by vongermany
The reading style will depend on the individual Reader. There is no other real answer.
There are some old traditional styles people still use. Celtic Cross is one of them, but not the only one. While other Readers can create their own style.
Do what is comfortable for you.

Answer by MelanieJade
I am a professional psychic tarot reader. When I think of describing a reader’s style, I think of the way the reader gets their information. I categorize readers into two main styles. One style is that the reader memorizes meanings for each card and interprets the cards in a reading based on the set definitions they know. This style of reading does not require psychic ability. Another style is to read the cards psychically. This means that each reading is different and every time a card shows up it can have a different reason for being there. This style of reader can also pick up on the energy of the situations and people shown in the cards. I fit into the latter category and read cards using my psychic ability and by channeling Spirit Guides. I would also describe my style as very positive, because I believe everything in our life happens for a positive reason. I can learn from my Spirit Guides the higher reason for everything happening in a person’s life and help them see how it is helping them on their path.

However, the person who asked you the question may have a different definition for “reading style”. I would suggest asking them what they mean by that, and maybe that will help you answer their question.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : help to interprate this tarot card reading?

i had a tarot card reading ( for past, present and future) it was a three card spread and the 1st card was two of swords, the second was the wheel of fortune and the last was the emperor.
The tarot card reader did interprate them very in depth, but what is the basic meaning/ interpretation of these cards.

Answer by Chipmunk
Without knowing the question it is absolutely impossible to know for sure where the cards were heading in point of meaning. Most likely scenario:-


being in a difficult spot, having to make choices which weigh in your favour at best to find a practical solution to the issue.

However, as I say, a question can change everything.

Since the age of 2 I have had encounters and a personal relationship with loved ones crossed. In my opinion there are no better friends you can have. They are honest, without the capacity to hold ego or materialistic views and always give you accurate information to help you through whatever you are going through. They have the ability to see the past, present and future without judgement. Their accuracy is uncanny.

Having the gift of sight, hearing, sensing, smelling and tasting as well as empathy and the gift of communicating with spirit, gives me the ability to accurately read you without judgement.

Spirit has entrusted me with these gifts to help you in all areas of your life. It has been an exciting journey. This gift is generational and my grandmother and father both had the gift as well as my children.

I have assisted over 15,598 people online in the last 9 years alone. I have thousands of other clients as well. This is what I dedicate my life to as I know it is my life calling.
