how you influence your own tarot reading

I’ve been reading tarot cards, on and off, since I was 21 (so 12 years at the time of writing) and the longer I work with the tarot, the more and more I am amazed by how our own attitudes really are reflected in the cards each time we read.

Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert at the tarot. I dabble. I still use my books to help me out. I go through phases when I read cards a lot, and then not at all. So, like I said, I’m not expert!

As I mentioned before, I don’t think our fates are set in stone, and this is something that informs the way that I read the tarot cards. See, I think that when you read the cards you get a snapshot of where you are now. Today, when I ask a question, I get an answer that reflects my emotional outlook as it stands today. However, were I to ask the same question tomorrow, after some sleep, feeling calmer, my reading might be very different because my outlook on the question has changed.

What I find all the more interesting then, are the times when the cards/reading essentially stay the same. For whatever reason, be it because of a "fate" like scenario or the fact that the attitude towards the question remains the same, I find it fascinating to see how much things can change or stay the same based on our state of mind/attitude/decisions.

When I read for others I always stress the point that what I am reading is a snapshot, a glimpse into a possible future based on who they are, what decisions they've made, how they feel, their reactions and responses, and their world around them, right now. And that it can change, because ultimately nothing is set in stone. They control their own destinies.
