A Complete Guide on What to Expect in a Tarot Card Reading

More and more people are realizing the benefits of consulting a psychic, and if you haven't yet, you may want to consider it. From 2014 to 2019, the psychic industry brought in a revenue of about $2.2 billion.

Getting a tarot card reading is a great and easy way to try it if you've never had a psychic reading before. However, if you've never had one before, you may be a little hesitant and scared to schedule one.

Here, we'll break down exactly what to expect so you can relieve any anxieties you have. 

Understand the Tarot Card Deck

Before you go, you'll need a little bit of a basic understanding of the tarot cards. In a standard deck, there are 78 cards. On each card, there will be a different image that represents some kind of different story. The story on the deck will be used to help explain the answer to the question you have. 

It can seem odd at first, but if you go into it with an open mind, you may find that you're surprised. 

The Minor Arcana Cards Are Just as Important

In the tarot card deck, there are minor and major arcana cards. However, the minor arcana cards are also really important for your psychic reading. 

Like a regular deck of cards, minor arcana cards will also have their own suits. These are:

  • Swords
  • Cups
  • Wands
  • Pentacles

When you get your reading, the suit that is most dominant will tell you about your own situation. For example, if your dominant suit is about cups, the cards may be trying to tell you something about your relationships and love. 

You May Not Get a 100% Accurate Answer

When you go into your first tarot card reading, you should expect not to get a 100% accurate answer. That just isn't possible. 

No one can see the entire future, but you may be able to have answers on some of it. There are many different ways that the deck can be shuffled, and they may have a different effect on your reading. 

Because of this, you should go into your tarot card reading with an open mind. When you do this, you may find answers that you didn't think you would get before. 

You Won't Be Asked Too Many Questions

If you're nervous about being asked too many personal questions, don't worry; they won't ask you too many personal questions.

Some questions the reader might ask you are what your birthday is, if you have any distinguishing features, or if there is anything else of importance they need to know. 

They can't ask you too many personal questions because they don't want it to ruin your reading. If you give them too many personal details, this could ruin the reading by making it biased.
