You may be thinking that the only uses for tarot cards are using them for gaining personal insight or for divination.
But you can also use them for spellcasting.
In a nutshell, tarot spell casting is creating any strong intension by using creative visualization, and you can say it is creative visualization on steroids.
What Is Tarot Spell Casting And What Can It Do For You?
The beauty of tarot spell casting is that it is simple and fast to do.
Unless you choose to add herbs, flowers, candles, or crystals, you don’t necessarily need to do so. But the use of crystals is a good idea such as the Clear Quartz as it can help amplify your intention. And you need to have a notepad and a pen.
Simple and powerful are the keywords when it comes to tarot spellcasting. Now, let’s go to the overview so you see how it is done step-by-step:
Step 1 – Set Your Intention
What is it that you want to bring out when you are casting the spell with tarot?
Be sure to be extremely specific with what your intention is. Don’t be vague or else it will not work.
For instance, if you say that you are setting an intention to make more money, that is too vague. Make it clear that you want to gain financial rewards by doing a specific job. Note your intention down in your notepad.
Step 2 – Take Your Tarot Deck, Find An Area Of The Room To Cast The Spell, And Start Shuffling
Take your tarot deck and go to an area of your room or home that you want to cast the spell (and it is strongly recommended to sage the area before doing any spellwork).
You can light a candle if you wish, but that is optional. Start to shuffle, and then keep the cards face-down. As you are doing so, think of your intention and phrase it with a question.
Choose 3 random cards that you draw with your left hand ( but you can choose more if you decide to, that is up to what you are inclined to do).
Step 3 – Flip The Cards Face-up
Flip the cards you had drawn face-up and look at them carefully. Note down what messages you had gotten from each card.
Pay attention to the card that catches your attention first, and if you need your tarot guidebook for further references on what each of the cards represents such as astrological associations, keywords, and so forth, then go to it.
You want to get all of the information as you can so you know how to take the next steps in order to go after your intention.
Step 4- Decide On Your Action Steps
After noting down the cards that you had chosen and examining them thoroughly, now it is time to create the right steps of action in order to go after your intention.
These steps should only require you to break it down to a few simple tasks and should not be too time-consuming to the point it would take up too much of your time.
Make sure as well that you jot down your plan of action so you follow through!
Another important note is to know what it means if you pull cards from the Major Arcana or the Minor Arcana, or a mix of both.
Minor Arcana cards – These are the cards that represent the mundane aspects of your daily life.
Pulling only Minor Arcana cards means that the way you approach aspects of your daily life will be different.
For instance, if you pull any card from the Sword suit, it will have an effect on your way of thinking and your beliefs.
If you pull any card from the Cups suit, it will have an effect on the way you feel, as well as you tapping and relying on your intuition and it will have an effect on relationships as well.
If you are pulling cards from the Wands suit, your creativity will need to be utilized, and if you pull from the Pentacles suit, the way you spend money, care for your physical health, and how you approach anything ordinary will be effected.
Major Arcana – These are the cards that represent major life experiences.
Therefore, any Major Arcana card you pull will mean you will have experiences while going after your intention that will transform you in some way.
Odds are you will pull cards from a mixture of the Major and Minor Arcana. This means you will take a mundane aspect of your life and how you go about it will create a deep and transformative experience for you.
Step 5 – Close The Spell And Thank Your Guides
Put the cards away, and thank your spirit guides for giving you the guidance you needed that were conveyed by the tarot cards.
Be sure to note your plan of action down right away or else you will forget!
