The earliest meanings of the Tarot are ambiguous and to this day remain shrouded in mystery. One theory is that the Tarot was brought to Europe from elsewhere, possibly from Egypt, India or Persia. What we do know is that the Tarot used today dates back to the mid fifteenth century when the aristocratic Italian Visconti-Sforza family commissioned the painting of several Tarot decks.
The 78-card deck has been used in many different ways since its creation with its most known use for clairvoyance. The Tarot deck is divided into two components: Major and Minor Arcana cards. The powerful symbolism in the Major Arcana reflects the principal events in our lives, whereas the cards of the Minor Arcana inform us of our circumstances and our experiences as well as the direction we may be heading.
Over the centuries many different decks have been designed but the fascination with the Tarot still remains. The Tarot continues to be used by clairvoyants as a powerful instrument to help and guide people through Tarot readings to this day.

How Kathryn incorporates Tarot in a psychic reading
I use the well-known Rider Waite Tarot cards because the images are colourful, clear and harbour a depth of symbolism. During the reading, I will ask the client to think of specific life issues where they would like guidance and understanding. I will then start shuffling the cards whilst attuning to the overall current situation and asking guidance from spirit.
Once the Tarot cards are laid out, I will focus on the overall spread of cards and pay attention to the general message and intuitive feelings I receive when first looking at the Tarot cards. I will first look at the Major Arcana Tarot Cards that appear in the reading. These cards point to significant life experiences and changes and provide vital clues as to the prevailing influences in the client’s life now and in the future. I will then look at the Minor Arcana which reflect future decisions the Tarot is advising the client to take. I will read these two components in harmony to create a whole and detailed reading for the client. I will then explain to the client exactly what I see with focus on the overall story and what the Tarot is advising and guiding them to do.
I have personally found Tarot cards to be an effective tool for guidance and self-discovery for both myself and others.
They are a key to help us access the inner wisdom that is within us all
To summarise, Tarot Readings can be a powerful instrument to help bring you a unique insight and understanding in areas of your life such as love, friendships, career and spiritual development. It can give you the confidence and direction to regain control of your life and create the future life in which you so desire.
