Tarot cards taps into your energies and gives you responses based on those energies. The deck can be used to show messages for your lovers, friends, relatives and even pets. It can even be used to give an analysis about young children. In the case of children, there is so much room for them to have other impressions to be made on them and this is mainly because they are still so young and have so much more time to grow up. For this reason, a psychic does not need to use the entire deck to tap into their energies and to see their fate.
If one has to perform a tarot reading for children it should originate from a deck that is shuffled and one that only has a few cards. The cards that should be drawn for a child’s reading should be from the cards zero through to 9 (The Fool through to The Hermit). One should also include all 16 court cards and those include 4 each of the Kings, Queens, Pages and Knights.
The Major Arcana Cards which are usually represented by a single digit reveal archetypes that talk about ones how we are programmed in our early stages. As a child develops, all that can possibly be said about the world of a child can be found within the said 26 cards. The 1st card of the Major Arcana that has two digits is 10 Wheel Of Fortune. This is the card that represents transition. Since every growing child is on the way to becoming an adult, there is therefore no need to use this card or any of the cards that come after it.
The Devil and Death cards are the ones that have illustrations in the Major Arcana. Put simply, do not consult with the bodies that are rising from the graves and anything else that is that morbid. There are some areas of the Tarot that can scare and shake a young child.
Any reading that is being made for a young child needs to follow a very simple structure. Instead of spreading out the Tree of Life to do a reading, you can use three cards to do a very simple reading. Set the first card down to represent what is happening in the present and set another card on the left to show The Root of the matter. A third card can be placed on the right to signify the possibilities that lie ahead.
Tarot readers who have advanced experience will immediately spot this method as being similar to that of doing a three card reading. That is one that seeks to show the past, present and future readings. The idea it has to be said is the same. The slight difference is that there is a lesser emphasis on what happened in the past and lesser prediction on what can come in the future. Such readings are geared towards helping a child to understand and explain the world they are in.
These are some of the interpretations that can be used to do a reading for a child. These interpretations are meant to tap into the world of a child. They allow a child to embrace what could be possible and to reach into the energies being exhibited by Tarot cards that are being drawn. Such a reading should be done only for a few number of months. A child should only get one reading for every month. Performing more than one reading every month will water down the impact of the Tarot on the child. What is the meaning of every card and how does it affect the child and in what context. The 1st card in the deck is the Fool also called the joker. This card signifies a sense of recess, freedom and a time to play and not have something to do.
