Tarot Readings in Monticello are performed by someone that is trained in how to read and interpret the symbolism of the Tarot Cards. Tarot Readers do not necessarily have to possess any psychic or supernatural gifts to perform Tarot Readings. It is more of a left-brain science (logical side of the brain) much like Astrology. I have found the best Tarot Readers are also initiates of the Golden Dawn Kabbalah*.
Having a Psychic Tarot Reading in Monticello is fulfilling.
Some tarot historians claim that the history of tarot cards is thousand of years old but there is little or no evidence to support this claim.
Historical records of tarot games go back only to the fourteenth century.
The oldest Italian tarot decks are form the XV century and come from northern Italy.
They were painted by hand for the Renaissance nobility of Milan. The early history of tarot cards is closely linked to the Visconti family and the city of Milan.
The decks were used to play but were also designed as a didactic tool to educate about mythology and ethics.
The Visconti decks that survived to our times are known with the name of their owners.
The Pierpont-Morgan or Colleoni is the most famous Visconti tarot deck.
It was probably created shortly after 1450 by Bonifacio Bembo, painter and miniaturist, to celebrate the marriage between Francesco Sforza and Bianca Maria Visconti.
Another ancient tarot deck that survived to our days and can be seen at the British museum, is the Mantegna deck, designed around 1470 by an unknown author of Northern Italy.
The Sola-Busca tarot deck is the only one that survived intact to our days. It was probably made in Venice and is the first one to have numbered trumps.
In the 1940s, Alister Crowley, a former member of the Golden Dawn, designed the Thoth tarot deck in collaboration with of Frieda Harris.
Also psychoanalyst Carl Jung (1875-1961) became interested in ancient systems of divination as tarot cards and I Ching.
For Jung tarot symbols represent perfectly the instinctual forces that work without our conscious control in our psyche. He called these symbols archetypes.
According to Jung, the images that represent the archetypes may vary in different cultures but their essential characteristics are universal.
When we are not aware of these archetypal forces we tend to act in a predetermined way, our actions unconsciously directed by these impulses.
Becoming aware of the archetypes and confronting them can make us free in our choices and able to respond to the challenges of life in an independent way.
Tarot cards can be a door to fulfilling our deepest needs and express our true self.
Present day Tarot Cards draw most of their symbolism from the Kabbalah. If you want a Tarot Reading, you will want to ask the Tarot Reader if they have knowledge of the Kabbalah as well.
There are pros and cons to both; It is a matter of personal preference really which is better.
*The Kabbalah incidentally is a form of Jewish Mysticism that is
believed to have originated from Moses. However, Mystical Kabbalah is non-religious; it ties in all the Gods and Goddesses of the world. I am referring to Kabbalah, from the Golden Dawn System of thought, often called “Mystical Kabbalah” today. Writer’s such as: Dion Fortune, S.L. Macgregor Mathers, and Isreal Regardie disseminated the Mystical Kabbalah ideas through their early 1900 writings on the subject.
The 7 Luckiest Tarot Cards to Receive in a Reading
Which are the luckiest Tarot cards in the deck? This article picks out the cards you should look out for in a tarot card reading as the best omens of good fortune.
Tarot cards can be a great way to not only glimpse the future but also to focus on it, and through the power of positive thinking attract good things into your life. Each tarot reading starts with a question from which the seeker can actively ask for guidance or even help to bring good luck their way. One can't definitively say that a particular card is always lucky or indeed that another card is a sign of bad luck because each card's meaning is dependent on the context and its relationship to other cards in the reading. However there are some cards in the tarot deck that have such a strong energy and are so auspicious that they are invariably a sign of some good fortune or other coming the way of the questioner. The following is a list of cards that you really want to turn up in a tarot card reading:
This truly is a great card to receive. It talks of harmony and happiness, healthy relationships and a feeling of oneness. The Sun has always been a metaphor for truth. When we say we can 'see the light' we mean we can see the truth in a situation. When we talk about becoming 'enlightened' we mean achieving a level of understanding. As the supreme source of light the Sun is therefore a powerful symbol of knowledge and understanding. Ignorance may be bliss but knowledge is power. Only when we really understand a situation do we have the power to transform it and get what we want. The Sun is also associated with greatness and success, so when this card turns up it is a positive reminder that we too can be 'brilliant' and truly 'shine.'
Three of Cups
The Three of Cups is the card of boundless joy, love and celebration. In cultures which advocate the philosophy that we live to work it can be hard to take seriously our deep need as human beings to bond with one another and celebrate our togetherness. After all, what is the point? What does it achieve? But celebration is an end in itself. We could equally ask (but rarely do) 'What is the point in just living to work? Where is the joy in that?' but also 'What greater joy and safety is there than in knowing that one is both loved and able to love?'
The World simply represents fulfillment and completeness. Having the world at one's fingertips means having everything one could possibly want and therefore being self contained and satisfied. In reality though, fulfillment is not so much what we have but how we feel. A monk or hermit may feel content with just his begging bowl and a cave to sleep in whilst a rich man may find little peace no matter how much of the world he owns. The card represents the promise of inner fulfillment and completeness. These feelings can come to all of us from time to time and the card reminds us to make the most of them when they do.
