Cartomancy and mindful tarot reading
The difference between cartomancy and a mindful reading of Tarot cards is that cartomancy presumes that coming events are already inscribed in fate, whereas a mindful reading is based on the fact that divination is only possible in some cases.
Indeed when the result of a given situation depends crucially on the work we do on ourselves, or that other people involved will do, divination with the Tarot will not be possible: in this case the cards will be limited to indicating the need for inner development.
In this case one can consult them a few months later. If growth has taken place, the cards will reveal the final outcome of a situation.
How to use the Major Arcana of the Tarot
With the Tarot you can do many spreads, which you can also find in books: it’s important however, to fully understand the meanings of the individual cards, upright or reversed, then you yourself can match the meanings in the various spreads.
One should be wary of books that offer the significance of two or three cards when they are laid together or next to one another, in that every situation is different and the nuances of meaning that the cards assume in different situations may vary.
In this section of the site you’ll find explanations about the meaning of the Major Arcana of Tarots in divination.
At this point, get yourself a deck of Tarots. To start with just the Major Arcana are sufficient.
If you buy the deck, or you receive them as a gift, after having created a mental void, using a technique you know (deep breathing or something else), shuffle the cards being sure that in the end some cards are upright and others reversed (for this reason don’t use cards with the figures cut in two), finishing to mix them when you feel it’s enough. Trust what you feel.
Now you’ve infused your energy into the deck and you’re ready to pull out for yourself, one card for the day, for the week, for the month, for the year or for an important situation in your life. With your intentions you communicate to the Tarot the request for the desired moment.
If, after you have picked a card, you feel you need further explanation, you can pick out another card or a third one. However don’t pick out more than four or five cards linked to a specific question.
In the video in this section you’ll see an example of divination of the Tarot with just single cards.
