I decided to order my very first tarot deck. The deck that caught my eye the most and I felt more drawn to is the Golden Tarot deck. I was really wanting to get an Egyptian tarot and the Hermetic tarot decks. Somehow I didn't feel as connected to those as I do with the Golden Tarot deck. It comes with a nice booklet to help interpret the meanings of each card, and it even interprets the reverse meaning of the card. I decided to do my own reading myself last night once I became comfortable doing one. I did learn a good deal from my personal reading. I understood that I am worrying about something that is hindering my spiritual walk. My emotions are getting in the way as well. Even though I may feel this way about why this friend of mine made this decision it has nothing to do with me. I cannot change another person's behavior because everybody is different, and everybody changes everyday. I must focus on myself and push those emotions that are hindering my spiritual growth out of the way such as anger, jealousy, envy etc.
Just by simply reading the cards this way I am starting to better understand myself. The number 7 card in the Celtic Cross Spread I did for my personal reading last night actually deals with a person I am to come across soon enough. Not sure when they may show up, but all I know is it will be soon. I am going to learn how to read Tarot cards based on elements that are within each card. In my tarot card deck it has Coins, Wands, Swords, and Cups. These four items represent the four elements Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. A few cards I could easily tell it had the element based on a horoscope I am familiar with such as Pisces the fish, Taurus the bull, Leo the Lion etc.
In the passing days I really intend on learning a lot from my Tarot deck. My sisters were not even enraged when they had seen them. They asked me to do a small reading from them, but I explained how I only just got them. Tarot does take quite a bit of practice. It may seem difficult because of the signs, symbols, and the Major and Minor arcana themselves. Those symbols can be learned. Hermetic Tarot definitely would have been advanced for me. I am glad that I bought my first deck of tarot cards.
Once I master this deck I definitely plan on browsing for a new deck.
