Tarot Readings in Elizabethtown 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 Elizabethtown is fulfilling.
Obviously, if you really want to learn about the meanings of the tarot cards and use them well, you'll spend time studying them and understanding the nuances of each card's interpretation. If, on the other hand, you're looking for a cool party game and want to impress your friends, this "cheat sheet" should provide you enough of a clue about each card's meaning that you can fake your way through a reading. And who knows -- once you loosen up and relax, you may surprise yourself!
The Major Arcana
The Major Arcana consists of cards that have an individual name (such as "The Fool") as opposed to simply a suit designation (such as "3 of Cups"). Most tarot decks number the Major Arcana as well as name them, although some give only the name.Card Card Card Number Name Meaning ------ ---------------- ------------- 0 Fool Faith 1 Magician Action 2 High Priestess Potential 3 Empress Abundance 4 Emperor Authority 5 Hierophant Conformity 6 Lovers Relationship 7 Chariot Will 8 Strength Compassion 9 Hermit Introspection 10 Wheel of Fortune Destiny 11 Justice Responsibility 12 Hanged Man Release 13 Death Transition 14 Temperance Balance 15 Devil Materialism 16 Tower Downfall 17 Star Hope 18 Moon Illusion 19 Sun Vitality 20 Judgment Rebirth 21 World AccomplishmentThe Minor Arcana
The Minor Arcana consists of cards that have a rank (such as "3" or "Queen") and a suit (such as "Cups"). Depending on your deck, the suits will have different names, but they have the same meanings. The first suit may be called wands, rods, staves, or sticks. The second suit is pretty universally called swords. The suit of cups is occasionally called chalices. And the final suit may be called coins, disks, or pentacles.Card Wands Swords Cups Coins ----- ----------- ---------- ----------- ----------- Ace Creative Mental Emotional Material ...

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.
Quick Reference Guide for Tarot Card Meanings
Too often business is all about doing what your head tells you to do rather than your heart. Leaders are ideally positioned to put humanity, compassion, and purpose back into the workplace, so why not use that power?
By putting people first, and by tapping into employees' unlimited wells of creativity, initiative, and productivity, the psychic and the financial rewards to your company and the people who work within it will be truly remarkable. Here's how.
1. Connect work to a mission
If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there. The heart-centered leader is a master of divining an organization's mission and then developing a vision for what paths the organization should take to achieve it. Everyone's work is positioned as part of a larger, big-story purpose. As Xerox PARC guru John Seely Brown put it, "The job of leadership today is not just to make money. It's to make meaning."
2. Speaking of connect. . . Connect!
Business is built on a foundation of strong relationships both inside and outside the organization. This makes two-way communication and true dialogue with your people critically important. The best leaders encourage an open flow of ideas throughout the organization and break down the walls that separate employees from one another.
3. Leave no employee behind
None of us is as smart as all of us. Every employee is a source of unlimited ideas on how to improve his or her organization's products, work processes, and systems. Most employees simply need to be invited to participate and then positively reinforced when they do. However, employee participation only works in an environment of complete and unconditional trust.
4. Don't just tolerate work-life balance, insist on it
In the past, companies demanded--and got--the best part of their employees' lives. Today, the people who run the most successful companies have learned that helping workers balance their lives on the job and off results in a healthy environment with less stress, much higher productivity, and much lower employee turnover. That is a sure recipe for a better bottom line.
5. Share the wealth
Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich provides two compelling reasons that organizations should share financial success with their employees: First, if you want to attract and keep talent, you have to pay for it. Second, if you want that talent to work with the enthusiasm that comes from ownership, you have to trade equity for it. By sharing the wealth with your people (through competitive pay, performance bonuses, stock options, and the like), you create extremely powerful organizational glue.
6. Have more fun
Employees who have fun at work are happy employees, and happy employees are more productive employees. Not only that, but research shows that fun restores immunity, elevates endorphins, and reduces diseases and work absences. There's simply no reason to have unhappy employees in your organization. Can't think of anything fun to do? Consider afternoon bowling outings, baseball games, cookouts, goofy hats, impromptu karaoke contests, and mock casinos for a start. Or just ask your employees.
7. Believe in the power of one
When you lead with your heart, others are sure to be touched, both inside and outside the organization. Putting people first is the key to unleashing the full power and creativity of employee teams, superior customer service, strengthened client relations, and closer and more productive relationships with vendors and suppliers. One person can make all the difference in the world, and there's every reason for that person to be you.
