About Tarot Cards - 2

If you have the inclination to learn Tarot Card reading, congratulations! Many people don't realize it, but sometimes the best person to read your cards is... you.
Once you decide on a Tarot Deck, take some time to study the booklet that came with it- which usually contains basic information on the symbolism of the cards.
Set aside some quiet time and hold each card in your hand, studying it, letting it speak to you. We cannot recommend this exercise enough; it is of prime importance that you "feel" the symbolism of each card, and how each card relates to another.
A good way to get to know the cards is to jump into a reading right away. We recommend:
Perhaps the most used, most famous Tarot Card spread- and for good reason! The Celtic Cross "covers all bases", so to speak. The card positions are as follows:
S = The "Significator"; or YOU. Usually selected by the Querent himself, a face card that best symbolized his/her characteristics.
1 = The Crossing Card. What is "crossing you" right now- an obstacle, or something you aren't aware of.
2 = The Foundation Card. What the question or problem is based on.
3 = The Near Future Card. Events coming in the near future that you will want to watch for.
4 = The Crown Card. What is "permeating" the question or problem; perhaps your aspirations.
5 = The Recent Events Card. More recent events that have a bearing on the current situation, question, or problem.
6 = The Querent Card. Although you are already represented by the Significator card, this card symbolized how you truly feel about the question, or relate to the current situation.
7 = The Querent's Surroundings Card. People and events that currently have an influence on the situation.
8 = The Hopes and Fears Card. What you hope or fear will come about.
9 = The Final Outcome Card. Represents what will ultimately happen- if you do not change the situation, or are unable to.
