In a recent post, Psyche gives some excellent information on how to give a Tarot reading. Specifically, she advises that the information the reader gives should be presented in a manner that is useful to the person receiving the reading.
This sounds like it should be elementary information—if the information presented in a reading isn’t useful, it’s basically meaningless data. However, Psyche’s idea is actually a rather advanced concept. In fact, it is often one of the most challenging aspects of giving a Tarot reading. The reader has to give up being centered on himself or herself and turn all attention to the client. The reader, in seconds, has to determine how to best convey information so the client is
- not overwhelmed by what they hear and ignores it, and
- affected by what is being revealed, so the client will act on it.
