Have you ever wondered why some Tarot readers can pull a complex prediction out of thin air? Have you ever felt defeated because you said that only the truly Psychic could do this? I’m going to share with you a secret for fast tracking your intuitive readings.
This secret will completely turbo charge your Tarot readings and literally save you years of study. The great thing about this technique is that it’s probably the most fun you can have learning the Tarot. This technique won’t even feel like study and the great thing about it is, you can start using it today.
It’s so simple you probably won’t believe me when I tell you what it is. You’ll probably end up thinking, “this can never work!” But trust me, not only does this work, it’s also one of the easiest things to implement and you can implement it straight away. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced professional, this technique will truly open up new ways of building that all important story.
How I learned to use it
I only stumbled upon this technique after I turned professional.
I was in the middle of a Tarot reading and everything felt like it was going wrong – and I mean everything. Anything I said to the client, they disagreed with. I felt defeated, and slightly humiliated. I was seconds away from handing her her money back, when knowing I had nothing to lose, I started reinterpreting the cards.
I just started saying what I saw – the most literal interpretation possible.
Under normal circumstances I wouldn’t even have attempted it, but with nothing else to lose, I no longer thought of it as a risk.
When the client started to enthusiastically agree with what I was saying, when I saw her get totally absorbed in the reading, when I knew I’d managed to turn the reading around, I almost couldn’t accept how easy it was to do.
The Secret Technique
As soon as you deal the cards out, don’t think about anything. Don’t think about the Spread, don’t think about what the positions mean, don’t think about Elemental Dignities, don’t think about Astrological associations, don’t think about all the Divinatory meanings you’ve learned over the years. Don’t think at all.
As soon as you deal out the cards, just say what you see. If you see the Star card, say, “this person is learning Astrology.” As soon as you see the Death card, say, “this is a Sex issue”.
As soon as you deal the cards out, say whatever it is you see. Don’t hold back. The stranger, the more random, the crazier, the more seemingly improbable – the better the reading will be. Check out these examples:
- 2 of Swords: Scissors – getting a hair cut
- 6 of Wands: Going horse riding
- 7 of Cups: Swimming
- 3 of Swords: Listening to music and singing in the shower
- 8 of Cups paired with the 10 of Disks: You’ll buy a house close to a lake
- Moon: This person loves romantic walks at night
- Page of Cups: loves collecting seashells
- Page of Disks: A fossil collector
- 9 of Cups: A cocktail party
- 4 of Swords: A peaceful protest(er)
- 8 of Swords: S & M fetishes
These are some examples that I’ve used over the years.
This will develop your intuition like nothing else will
Allow your unconscious to read for you, allow yourself to trust the Tarot, allow yourself to trust…well, yourself. The time for second guessing is over. Use this technique today, and I guarantee you, the more fearless you are with it, the less concerned you are with making mistakes, the better your readings will become.
This is one of the few really fun, easy and effective techniques that I know of that will help develop your intuitive Tarot readings.
