Intuition can help you read Tarot Cards


You don't have to be psychic to use tarot cards but you do need to be in tune with your intuition. It's a gut feeling we get regardless of the logistics of a particular situation

Our intuitions are our natural ability to instinctively sense things in the world around us - it's nothing to do with our cognitive abilities. Intuition kicks in to let us know that something is wrong even when all appears to be right

Think back to those times when you've met a new person who appears wonderful to everyone else - but you've sensed that something wasn't quite right with that person. You've not been able to put your finger on it but somehow you knew that something wasn't right

That's your intuition warning you. What happens in a case like this is that although outwardly you'll act friendly towards that new acquaintance - deep inside you'll be guarded and alert because of the feeling you have on a gut level

Being psychic is a little different from having keen intuition, psychic ability is when your senses go beyond the normal range of perception. It's considered a gift of sorts, and different people who are considered “psychic” may actually have a specific type of gift that they use to give psychic readings

Some of the ways that this gift of being psychic manifests itself is in a person being able to hear and see things beyond the normal span of hearing and vision, or being able to channel into the spiritual realm. These are just some of the more obvious ways that psychic ability shows itself

The person who is psychic can unconsciously use their gift without having to think about it - just the same as a person with well developed natural intuition can use their skill to read tarot cards

Obviously - to be an effective reader of tarot cards you don't have to be psychic - but you must be alert and tuned into your intuition, because you'll find the more you discover and use your natural intuition when interpreting the tarot, the stronger and more focused  it becomes

It's like any other life skill - the more you do something - like using your intuition in this case - the better you become at doing it

The tarot cards are just tools for you to focus your intuitive senses on as you connect to the person that you're doing the reading for while you build a picture of what's going on in their life

Some people are naturally intuitive and even psychic while others have to work a little harder to get the same sense of what's going on

So remember as  you buy that first tarot card deck, that the cards in your hands aren't “magic” in and of themselves. It's your energy that's switched into the cards, and that's what makes the magic work for you

It's your intuitive connection to the symbolism on the cards or your psychic abilities that creates the magic

The symbolism of each picture on the cards, your knowledge and your intuitive feelings in relation to the card and your subject is what makes for a successful interpretation of the tarot cards deck. There are many tarot decks in use today - here's a short list of just a few that are available:
