Tarot Readings in Middlesborough 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 Middlesborough 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.
Tarot Reading Vs Psychic Reading: Which Is Better? What Are the Differences?
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.
