Whatever your purpose is for wanting to try a tarot card reading, it’s in your best interest to find a reputable tarot consultant to ensure that you have a quality experience.
Tip #1 For Choosing a Reputable Tarot Card Reader:
Consider asking around your social circle for recommendations. You’d be surprised at how many people have tried at least one tarot reading in their lifetime. If this isn’t an option or you don’t want any of your friends to think you’re unbalanced for wanting to experiment with an “alternative” service, then call a few metaphysical stores in your area. They should be more than willing to provide a referral and some stores even have in-house tarot consultants that they endorse.
Tip #2 For Choosing a Reputable Tarot Card Reader:
Once you have a recommendation, call the tarot reader to set-up an appointment. While you’re on the phone with them, be sure to ask if they are certified with the Tarot Certification Board of America. If so, find out which active level they have obtained. You can view the criteria each tarot reader must meet or exceed at different levels by clicking here.
By choosing a tarot reader that has put forth the time and effort to obtain certification, you are less likely to have a bad experience. It’s advised that you view the Tarot Certification Board of America’s Client Bill of Rights if you choose to book a reading with one of their members.
Tip #3 For Choosing a Reputable Tarot Card Reader:
Ask if the tarot reader offers a trial reading. This will often be shorter than a normal reading and less expensive. This gives you the opportunity to see if you feel comfortable with the atmosphere of the reading site and also lets you evaluate the way the reader communicates information. It’s normal to feel nervous the first time you experience a reading and the tarot consultant should do everything possible to make you feel at ease. If you feel comfortable after the trial reading is over, you may want to book a full tarot reading with the consultant.
Ideally, a tarot reading should be a fun and enlightening event. By following these suggestions, you are more likely to have a positive tarot experience.
