WHAT HAPPENS IN A TAROT READING?
Contained within the esoteric teachings of the Tarot is the universally held metaphysical principal that we are the creators of our life experience. To put it simply, we are the causal factor and the world we perceive is the effect. The Tarot teaches that our lives are in a continuous state of flux and how we experience life is directly related to the thoughts, beliefs, attitudes and emotions we hold about ourselves, others, and the world in general. Therefore, we are continuously shaping our experience through the power of our thoughts. This means that it is impossible that there exists an immutable or fixed destiny for anyone regarding any life situation.  This principal applies to both negative and positive patterns of thought. Based on the law of the creative action of mind, the most we can surmise about the future is that when a mental pattern is fixed, the out- picturing of that pattern will be fixed and predictable. A Tarot reading is a symbolic snapshot of a specific moment in time and space that reflects the beliefs and emotions the questioner has concerning the life issue being addressed. This means that a Tarot reading is first and foremost a diagnostic tool for the psyche.  A Tarot reading is a kind of dream interpretation session where each Tarot symbol is interpreted to represent a certain aspect of the inquirer's psyche as it applies to their question.  The primary function of the Tarot reader is to interpret the Tarot symbols in such a way as to help the client identify the inhibiting or supporting beliefs he or she has surrounding the subject of their inquiry. A skilled reader will also pick up any subjective psychic impressions related to the inquiry triggered by their interaction with the Tarot images.  With these new insights the client is now prepared to make more conscious and knowledgeable decisions regarding their inquiry and consequently, by taking action, manifest their desired outcome. - Dale Boyce
