May I ask you a question? Is the tarot just the vehicle for the person's intuition. Is the person the channel for the "answers" but using the cards as a physical element? Thank you Sweetie and I am so excited to learn from you!

Hello Ami

You are always welcome to ask questions

Tarot reading is an art much like interpreting an astrological chart.

There are various systems which work for each individual with no set rules. Each reader is unique. The more you practice with your cards, the more you will understand what works for you.

There are readers who use the tarots as a guide to channel answers combined with their intuition.
There are those who rely on picking up on energies through the cards to interpret.

Thank you and I'm excited to teach here
