What are the benefits of tarot card reading?

There are so many benefits to tarot card reading! But, the most pressing one is this: clarity in thought and vision. 

When Psychic Sofa tarot readers interpret cards from a tarot deck, they reveal various important divinatory meanings. Card meanings can relate to love, relationships, work, and family as well as offer insight into your current life challenges. 

Across a great span of time, or just this current moment in time, our gifted psychic readers offer great clarity regarding your personal experiences. This guidance can make you feel much better about your current situation. Ultimately leading you to view your circumstances (whatever they may be!) without confusion and with an improved awareness of yourself and your actions. 

Tarot card reading can also help your connection with the universe, as well as your relationships with the important people in your life. Finding the right tarot card reader through Psychic Sofa is a crucial step towards staying on the right life path! Don’t underestimate the power of meaning - and the interpretation of that meaning. Divinatory tarot looks toward the future and the flow of life. 

Of course, the flow of life is always changing. 

Think of the flow of life like a river – ebbing and flowing as it wishes, sometimes rapid, and sometimes slow and calm. Reading tarot cards can bring us into balance with the flow of life as we reach an improved state of connection and understanding with ourselves. 

What questions can you ask tarot cards?

If you want to receive a clear tarot card reading, there are some recommended questions to ask! Sometimes, the questions themselves are just as important as the answers you want to receive. Without a doubt, the best types of questions to ask in readings are as follows…

Open-ended questions: Broad questions, such as ‘What is happening in my love life right now?’ are best to ask a tarot reader – tarot cards aren’t there to give you a final answer to a situation, they simply guide you to making an appropriate decision for yourself. 

General questions: Sometimes, we don’t have a clear idea of what we want, or need, to know from a tarot deck! You could ask ‘What do I need to know right now?’ and receive meaning from your tarot cards that might otherwise be unexpected, yet so important. 

Clarifying questions: There’s no shame in clarifying something your tarot reader has said, with a question such as ‘What did you mean by this?’. When first engaging with tarot, it’s no surprise that further explanation might be needed. It’s better to be sure of what the cards are telling you than to misinterpret what has been said. 

Advice on choosing the right tarot deck

There are different types of tarot decks that all serve different insightful purposes! Sometimes, people choose tarot decks that best complement their personality, and others use sentimental decks that have been gifted to them. 

With an explosion of tarot decks recently taking place, we’ve compiled some of the finest decks for you to choose from. One of these might be the right one for you!

Crowley Tarot: Created by Lady Frieda Harris and renowned occult scholar Aleister Crowley, the Crowley Tarot deck is remarkable for its gorgeous Art Deco design and the inclusion of three Magus, or Magician, cards. Crowley’s occult tarot proves insightful for four areas of life – general, consciousness, professional matters and relationships. 

Egyptian Tarot: Journey back in time with the Egyptian Tarot deck, where many of these cards are related to the ancient mysteries of Egypt. Different Egyptian divinities adorn these tarot cards, insightful for situations in the past, present and future. Interpretation can vary depending on the direction of the card in your deck, the influence of the virtues, the twelve periods of the year, and the four stages of life. 

Arcana Tarot: Both Major and Minor Arcana cards can be used in a deck, although Major Arcana cards are particularly impactful in tarot. When reading tarot, Major Arcana cards – of which there are 22 – will represent situations we all face in life, on a greater scale. Each carries specific messages of useful perspective and guidance. Minor Arcana cards focus on everyday actions, not the bigger picture. 

Tarot de Marseille: Tarot de Marseille dates back to the 13th century with strong roots in France. It is still popularly used for magical research, divination and meditation. Many of these tarot decks are close reproductions from the authentic Tarot de Marseille - a beautifully engraved, woodcut original set still kept in Paris.
