Hi Tarot Tribe, it’s Ethony.  Today I want to talk about Free Tarot Readings. Before I get started, these are my thoughts, you don’t have to agree with everything or anything I say. If you comment below or reply to comments below, I would really like it if everyone kept it respectful. As with everything I offer, take what resonates with you and leave the rest. Free Tarot Reading requests are frequently found in my inbox, IG messages and FB messages. I know I am not alone in this. There are many people in our community who are professional Tarot...

I am currently reading The Steampunk Tarot by Barbara Moore before I post a review and in her Tarot Basics chapter she asks the reader to ask themselves some questions about what they believe a Tarot reading to be.The questions are good ones and I encourage anyone who works with the Tarot either as a tool for spiritual development for themselves or a professional reader for others to ask these questions.So I am going to pretend that Barbara is asking me these questions and share them here.1. Can the future be told, and if so to what extent?I believe that...

Even though I have been working with the Tarot for over 10 years I still often wonder why certain people get Tarot readings.There are many ways to read Tarot Cards. There are those readers who are not psychic at all and will not carry out predictive readings and use the Tarot as more of a self reflective and counselling tool. Then there are the readers who are very intuitive and use their developed psychic abilities to conduct their readings, as well as utilizing their knowledge of the Tarot Cards. Some readers never learn the 'traditional' meanings of the cards and...

I am not sure about other Tarot Readers out there but I really do not like the 3 card Spread (Past, Present and Future) and I think I now know why.Besides being very over simple. Everytime I would lay down three cards in order I would understand why the 'Present Card' was nessassry and the 'Future Card' (usually the card most people are most interested in anyway when they come for a Tarot Reading) but it was the 'Past Card' that always got me.Why bother with the past, I mean the Querant already knows what happened so why cover it?...

A while ago I posted about the associations of the Major Arcana in the traditional layout and started with the first set of three. http://ethony.com/the-magician-strength-and-the-devil-all-walk-into-a-pub/Here are the next three:The High Priestess - Card 2The Hermit - Card 9The Tower - Card 16Here is what I believe they all have in common: ConcealConceal is defined in the dictionary as:1. to hide; withdraw or remove from observation; cover or keep from sight2. to keep secret; to prevent or avoid disclosing or divulgingEach of these cards has a hidden meaning or implies that not is all as it seems, beckoning us to seek...

There is a superstition that has been in the tarot community for as long as I know and everyone has heard it or read it in a book, it is that you are not supposed to buy your own deck as it will not provide you with clear readings and it is bad luck, you are supposed to have someone buy it for you or receive it as a gift. The gift one is supposed to be the best luck. Tarot/New Age/Pagan people (not all together most of the time) tend to be suspicious people and this worries new comers. I...
