The Intuitive Tarot Technique
This is the basis for the Intuitive Tarot Technique. Whatever catches your eye or your attention is the important thing in that card. Whatever it is that catches your attention is the thing that you need to interpret.
You interpret that thing by using the definitions youíve already decided to assign to that object, shape, color or Element. If itís a person that catches your eye, use the six basic questions given in the Intuitive Tarot Technique Outline of topic discussed on the audiotape or CD accompanying this lesson. If itís a feeling you feel, make a note of it and describe the feeling you have.
This is the Intuitive tarot technique. It looks easy and it is. Itís all about you and your own intuitive insights. When you feel something, believe what you feel. When you analyze people, believe what you feel. When you have good definitions for the objects, shapes, colors and Elements, youíll start to listen to your own intuitive insights and your intuition will improve quickly.
The secret to doing good tarot readings is to define the things you want to define in the cards. Practice with these definitions by doing readings for yourself. Your subconscious mind will always honor the meanings you attach to each card. Itís this relationship between you and your subconscious mind that makes Tarot readings work as a divinatory tool. Remember, your subconscious mind will always honor the meanings you attach to each card.
