Tarot Readings in Cold Spring 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 Cold Spring 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.
Spirit Messages: Tarot/Oracle & Angel Card Reading May 22- 28th
In matters of Love, there is nothing like a good Tarot reading. The Tarot offers a unique perspective, shedding light on the nature of our relationships. They are there to guide you on your journey, both personally and romantically. Questions of love are, by far, the most common inquiries made during a Tarot reading. However, many people find them selves disappointed or unsatisfied. The cause of this is often due to the questions that are asked. The most important aspect to a successful Tarot reading, is asking the right questions.
The most common error that is made during a tarot reading is the withholding of information. People tend to do this when they question or test a Tarot reader's ability. Its quite normal to feel apprehensive when working with a new Tarot reader, particularly if it is your first time getting a reading. Under these circumstances, the biggest issue that arises is a lack of open-mindedness. Unfortunately, this doesn't serve you or the Tarot reader. Withholding information can, ultimately, impede that Tarot reader's ability.
Finally, it's important to remember that a good Tarot reader will never tell you what to do. They are, in essence, messengers. You are your own master and have your own free will. You have the power to choose your own directions and behaviors. In love matters, you are always your own best guide. While tarot readings can often disclose important influences, you always have the power to make your own decisions and choose your own course of action.
