Tarot Card Readings
There are many myths about how Tarot Cards came to be and where they originated from. The most recorded history comes from Italy in the early fifteenth century, although the origin of the word itself is French. It is thought that the Italian word ‘tarocco’ (plural ‘tarocchi’) was used initially, and that the terminology came about nearly a century after the cards came to be.
How the Tarot works for you
The Tarot is comprised of archetypal images that cross linguistic, cultural, geographical and temporal barriers. The tarot is an objective tool in the pursuit of self-analysis; the invaluable benefit of this kind of divination for self-awareness is that the cards never lie. The tarot describes patterns of behaviour. We are exactly what the tarot says we are. That is not to say that you blame the cards for your decisions. You are to take responsibility for your actions.

Love’s energy is never static and this spread can show you how and where it is moving right now. You are mirroring a relationship, not yourself, as in the Celtic readings.
Vision boards consist of cut outs of magazine pictures of events, happenings, desires, wishes, goals – anything you feel you want in your life – and a red background is usually used. This helps with positive prosperity and energy flow.
The pictures are pasted on a board and you are encouraged to look at the board often to help the energy flow. Be patient, time in our lives is linear, impatience causes energy blockages. The Laws of Attraction really do work.
This spread is based on the astrological year. Thus the first card is April (Aries O degrees), the second May and so on. It indicates opportunities and/or a mission for each month.
