Of the many spiritual exercises and rituals, tarot is one of the few that have stood the test of time. The first deck that we know of was made in Italy at some point between 1430 and 1450. Since then, they’ve been used all throughout history, and they’re still popular today.
If you’re interested in tarot and analyzing your daily tarot reading spread, you’re probably wondering what you can do with the information from these readings. And rightfully so! There are a lot of ways that tarot readings and interpretations can help with everyday decision making.
Here, we’re going to talk about how you can use tarot to influence the choices you make on the daily!
Learn Basic Tarot Reading
Before you can use tarot to guide your decision making, you of course need to learn the basics of doing a reading. Even if you’ll have the help of a friend or professional, it’s still good to be in the know so you know what’s going on.
This means that you should learn the cards in the deck and what they mean. This means searching online for what certain cards are telling you as well as what different combinations of cards insinuate. When you know this, your reading will be both more fun and a much smoother process all around.
Learning the basics of tarot reading will also help your mind to stay at rest because you’ll know what to expect during the experience. Because tarot reading is such a spiritual and personal craft, having this knowledge will help you to get what you want out of the reading.
Finally, if you don’t know how to even read the tarot cards presented to you, how can you hope to interpret them? You can’t, of course, and if you can’t analyze the cards you’ve gotten, you won’t be able to use your reading to guide decisions! So without doing a little bit of (fun!) research, you won’t get much out of the reading in the first place.
Improve Your Mental Health
One underlying way that tarot might help you to make daily decisions is by improving your mental health. Yes, you heard that right: tarot can reduce stress and anxiety, build connections with others, and help you become more introspective.
This means that even when you aren’t conscious of the fact that tarot is influencing your decision making, it will subconsciously be helping to guide you! After all, since tarot increases confidence and stability, you’ll be able to become a more decisive person who better understands what they want from life.
By improving your mental health, tarot helps you to understand the decisions that you need to make to get to the place in life you want to be.
Read for Specific Horoscopes
There are many ways to conduct a tarot reading, but one of the most common ways to tailor it to you personally is to base it on your horoscope. Most people know their star sign as well as some traits identified with it, so use this knowledge going forth into your reading for more personalized results.
There are different specific ways to read tarot cards if you’re tailoring the reading to a Pisces, Aries, Gemini, or Cancer horoscope. Look into these ways for a fun and new tarot experience!
Even if you choose to do a different kind of reading, you can still think about the ways your reading relates to the personality traits for your given star sign. This is a fun way to spice things up!
Talk to a Reader
When you do a tarot card reading, especially before you know a lot about the practice, it might be a good idea to ask the person doing the reading how they analyze your cards. If you don’t know a lot about tarot, this will make sure that your reading is as accurate as possible.
Plus, it will help you learn! Whether the reader is a friend who’s studied tarot as a hobby or a professional you’ve hired to read your fortune, they probably have a better idea of what’s happening than you do as a newbie.
Talking to the reader will also give you further insight into how to use the information to influence your decisions. Even if you know what the cards are telling you to do, it’s nice to have affirmation… or a second opinion that makes you think twice.
Analyze Your Cards
Still, whether you talk to a reader or not, you’re the one who ultimately has to interpret your cards. Even if you don’t think that tarot is an accurate measurement of the future, no one can argue with the fact that a reading gives you a lot to think about.
This is because you are prompted to think about where you want to go and what route you’re on in life. You can use the ideas you get from this prompting to understand what you need to do to fulfill both your dreams and your obligations. It’ll also let you learn more about yourself and let you make decisions in a more mindful way.
After you get good at analyzing your tarot cards, you might not even need to talk to the reader about them! You can just use them as a prompt for personal growth. Still, even then, the extra opinion can’t hurt.
Daily Tarot Reading Spread
Tarot reading is a lot of fun despite the bad rep that it sometimes gets. Even if you don’t 100% believe that a deck of cards can tell the future, it’s definitely true that you can interpret your cards and use the information you glean to make the best decisions for yourself.
Now that you know how to use your daily tarot reading spread to make decisions, check out this article to learn about palm reading! It’s another great spiritual experience that can read your fortune and help you make daily decisions.
Good luck and have fun!
