For those who might be new to psychic readings, a free tarot psychic reading can provide a great introduction to the process.
What is Tarot?
The tarot deck is a collection of cards that originated in Italy in the fifteenth century. It usually consists of seventy-eight cards divided into Major and Minor Arcana.
Initially, the deck was used to play games, much like our standard fifty-two card deck is today.
Starting from the eighteenth century, the deck began to be used for divination.
By the nineteenth century, use of the tarot for divination and psychic readings had become a fairly common practice.
Today, a variety of divination decks exist, but the traditional tarot remains a preferred choice by many psychic readers.
How Tarot Reading Works
Most tarot readers use the Major Arcana as the primary tool for their readings.
When the cards are laid out on the table in a specified pattern, each card represents a part of the life of the person for whom the reading is being done.
The significance of the card that falls in each section of the layout is determined by the psychic as he or she discusses the client's specific concerns and questions.
A free tarot psychic reading will probably make use of one of the traditional tarot layouts such as the Celtic Cross.
Other layouts–also called spreads–might be used depending upon the client's individual needs and the preferences of the reader.
Some simpler layouts are helpful for concrete questions.
An experienced tarot reader can provide a wide variety of help and advice regarding questions or problems in a client's life.
