Tarot and Oracle Card Readings

Tarot and oracle card readings are popular practices that offer insight, guidance, and self-reflection.

These forms of divination have been used for centuries as tools to connect with the subconscious mind, tap into intuitive wisdom, and explore the hidden aspects of life.  Did you also know that years ago, regular playing cards were used as a form of divination and it was called “Cardology“.  Some practitioners use regular deck of cards today to perform divination and readings.

 

Tarot cards originated in the 15th century in Europe and have since become one of the most well-known divination systems worldwide. A traditional tarot deck consists of 78 cards, divided into two main categories: the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana comprises 22 cards, each representing a significant life lesson or archetype, such as The Fool, The Lovers, or The Hermit. The Minor Arcana consists of 56 cards, divided into four suits—Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles—each reflecting different aspects of human experience and daily life.

 

Oracle cards, on the other hand, offer a more flexible and diverse approach to divination. Unlike tarot, oracle decks can vary greatly in terms of the number of cards, imagery, themes, and messages. Oracle cards often feature positive affirmations, symbolic illustrations, or specific themes like angels, animals, chakras, or goddesses. The interpretation of oracle cards relies more on intuition and personal resonance with the imagery and messages of the cards.

When you have a tarot or oracle card reading, the reader (or practitioner for the sake of this website)  shuffles the deck while focusing on the question or intention of the seeker (that’s you). The seeker then selects a specific number of cards, either by their intuition or as guided by the reader. This is not always the case as the reader may select the cards instead.

 

The cards that appear are interpreted based on their individual meanings, symbolism, and their position in the spread. The reader may provide insights into the seeker’s current situation, potential challenges, hidden influences, and possible outcomes.

 

Tarot and oracle cards function as powerful tools for self-reflection and personal growth. They offer a means of accessing the subconscious mind and exploring the deeper layers of one’s thoughts, emotions, and desires. The cards can help individuals gain clarity, uncover patterns, and make decisions aligned with their authentic selves. Additionally, card readings can provide guidance, validation, and reassurance during times of uncertainty or change.

 

It’s important to note that tarot and oracle cards are not fortune-telling devices that predict the future with absolute certainty. Instead, they offer possibilities, perspectives, and potential outcomes based on the current circumstances and energies at play. The interpretation of the cards relies on the reader’s intuition, experience, and their connection with the seeker. The seeker ultimately has free will, of course, and the power to shape their own destiny.

 

Whether used for personal exploration, spiritual guidance, or entertainment, tarot and oracle card readings offer individuals a unique way to tap into their own intuition and gain deeper insights into their lives. By understanding the symbolic language of the cards, one can go on a journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and transformation.

 

video conferencing In today’s digital age, remote tarot or oracle card readings have become increasingly popular, offering the convenience of accessing insights and guidance from the comfort of your own home. Thanks to video conferencing platforms like Zoom, Skype, Google Meet and many other virtual tools, it’s possible to have a personal reading with a professional reader no matter where you are located.

 

Here’s how you can get a remote reading through Zoom:

 

Find a Reputable Reader

Start by researching and finding a trusted tarot or oracle card reader who offers remote sessions. You can look for recommendations from friends, read reviews online, or explore directories of professional readers. Ensure that the reader has experience and expertise in their field. We have one or more here in our website. Visit the Practitioner’s Page.

 

Book a Session

Once you have chosen a reader, visit their individual bio page or contact them directly to book a session or a discovery call. Many readers have online booking systems that allow you to select a date and time that works for you. Be mindful of any time zone differences if you and the reader are located in different regions.

 

Set up Zoom, Skype or Phone Meeting

You may need to download the Zoom or Skype  application on your computer, smartphone, or tablet if you haven’t already. It’s a user-friendly platform that offers stable video and audio communication. Create an account if required, and familiarize yourself with the basic functions of Zoom. If you are local to the reader or practitioner from our website, you can just setup a phone call meeting.

 

Prepare for the Reading

Before the session, take some time to clarify your intentions and formulate any specific questions or areas of your life you wish to explore during the reading. Create a calm and comfortable space where you can relax and focus without interruptions.

 

Join the Zoom or Skype Meeting

You may have received an Email with the zoom link. At the scheduled time, click the Zoom link and enter the meeting ID or personal link provided by email from the reader. Make sure your camera and microphone are enabled so that you can see and hear each other clearly. Adjust your settings to optimize your audio and video quality.

 

Connect and Interact (video conference or meeting)

Once the connection is established, you will see the reader on your screen, and they will guide you through the reading process. They may ask you to shuffle the cards remotely or select cards from a digital deck. Share your questions or areas of focus, and engage in a dialogue with the reader as they interpret the cards and offer insights.

 

Respect the Reading Process

Treat the remote reading with the same respect and openness you would give to an in-person session. Remember that the reader is there to provide guidance, but you still have control over your own choices and actions.

 

Take Notes

It can be helpful to have a pen and paper nearby to jot down any significant messages, insights, or guidance that arise during the reading. These notes can serve as a reference afterward and help you integrate the wisdom gained from the session. Sometimes, information you receive may not resonate with you at the time of your reading and perhaps one day, you remember a person’s name or situation that the reader mentioned to during your session. Taking notes and reflecting may help with this.

 

Follow Up and Reflect

After the reading, take some time to reflect on the insights received and how they resonate with your current circumstances. If you have any further questions or need clarification, you can reach out to the reader for additional support or follow-up sessions.

Remote tarot or oracle card readings through platforms like Zoom, Skype, etc.,  provide a convenient and accessible way to seek guidance and clarity from professional readers.  The possibilities of technology can connect us with readers from anywhere in the world that have Internet connection, to discover a meaningful journey of self-discovery and empowerment.
