Four people attended. As usual, we began with a review of some previous material before moving into new information and working with the cards.
This time we focused on how to properly form a question before spreading the cards and doing a reading. I shared my own technique for calming the body and mind and sitting down to do a reading.
Forming a question for the Tarot cards
First we have to relax in our environment, sit comfortably, and breathe.
After you have established a tranquilly aware state of mind you can formulate a question for the cards.
It is very important to have a clear question to focus upon before shuffling and spreading the cards.
The shuffling method - the way in which the hands manipulate the cards, the possibility of taking into account reversed meanings, cutting the deck, etc... - depends on the reader, and we spoke of several ways of doing it.
we then practiced simple one and three card draws.
After that, we took a look at the popular ten card Celtic Cross spread.
