Tarot card explanation

Tarot - The Star

A Tarot reading is a method of fortune telling. There is a very passionate debate about how/if it all works, but I'll stick to the basics here.

If you would like to read more about how and if it works, click on this link for my views on a Tarot card explanation, and the history of Tarot cards.

Normally, the Inquirer, or Questor, shuffles/cuts the 78 cards first and then hands them to the Reader who lays them out in whatever pattern, 'spread' or layout they have chosen.

The reader then uses one of several methods to predict the meaning of 'Life, The Universe and Everything' in relation to the Questor.

Unfortunately, this tends to be large-scale stuff and generalities, rather than simple, immediately useful info such as 'what are the next winning lottery numbers?'.

Any Tarot card explanation can hardly fail to address one of the 'biggie' questions -

But isn't it all demonic / evil / the work of 'Old Nick'?

Well, only exactly the same way that Happy Families, Top Trumps and 'Snap' are!

After all, the cards are only a standard pack of playing cards with another set of 26 added on. None of them require you to disembowel a chicken, run around naked at midnight or ravish a virgin.

Yes, one of the cards is called The Devil, but then 'The Bible' mentions him a couple of times as well - even if only as a minor character.

"I play poker with Tarot cards.
One night, I got a full house and five people died!"

Is it fun / interesting / popular?

Yes! Very much so!

Even those who don't believe in it one little bit still want to have a reading, 'just for interest you understand!'

And as a performer and entertainer, over thirty years I've not seen anything that has been as popular - with a wide range of audiences.

So where can I have a reading?

You'd be surprised. I've done them for individuals as well as a wide range of events ranging from a garden party, a wedding and a staff party.

You can incorporate a series of shorter readings as an extra 'fun' entertainment for a larger number of guests at a wedding, party or conference.

A fewer, more detailed readings could form the highlight of a private dinner party, and a full-on, in depth personal reading is always an option.

How can I learn how to give readings?

The same way as everything else - step by step, and with a bit of effort!
