I am amazed at how complex the Tarot can be. The multiple layers of information contained within a reading are impressive, to say the least. After working with the Tarot for over 25 years, I still learn something new with each reading I do.

There are four basic elements to look at in a reading:

1. The Layout.

There are many types of layouts to choose from when planning a reading. I prefer the Celtic Cross method because it gives me the options of past, present and future as well an opportunity to look at relationships and divine intervention.

2. The Position of the Cards.

When you are reviewing a reading you need to be aware of what the cards mean unto themselves and then add the aspect and determination of the place the card holds in the reading. The same card can have very different interpretations depending on the position it falls in within the reading.

3. Major and Minor Arcana.

Major arcana cards can have strong influence on the interpretation of a reading. If there are three or more major arcana cards in a reading, it indicates that there are many outside influences at work. And depending on the position of the major arcana cards in the reading, they can greatly influence the outcome of the reading. While minor arcana cards can indicate a return of control to the querent, they must also be assessed by the additional influences of their number and suit. So, not only do you have to be aware of the meaning of a particular card, you must also be aware of the meanings associated with their suits and numbers.

4. Aces and Court Cards.

Court cards can be more difficult to interpret because they can represent a person, they can point to a career choice, they can indicate a time frame and they can refer to a course of action – or they can be interpreted as any or all combinations of the above. And while aces represent new beginnings and opportunities, they can also indicate time frames and refer to the aspects of their suit.

So hang in there, all of you who are just beginning to work with the tarot. After a while and with a lot of practice, you really can start to make sense of it all. For more information, check out some of the articles on this site especially, Reading Tarot Cards.
