The goal of a Tarot reading is to bring you more closely in tune with your frame of mind and what may be influencing you. The cards can help you clarify your position and highlight your options, and prompt you to frame your thoughts in such a way that makes you more receptive to your intuition. You are being given suggestions, not predictions. The cards offer advice on things you can do, courses of action to take, and external circumstances you can influence. Think of the Tarot as your own private counsellor, life coach and best friend.
