Tarot Tip: When You Don’t Understand the Meaning of a Card

Dear Melanie Jade,

Cartoon woman thinking

What do you do when you don’t understand the meaning of a tarot card in a reading?

Okay, so you’ve laid out your cards, you’re off to a great start, and all of a sudden you look at a card that just doesn’t seem to make sense in the reading. What do you do? Here is one of my super duper, handy dandy tips for reading tarot, so listen closely. Sometimes our conscious mind blocks our understanding of a card. This could be for many reasons, including that we don’t like the answer, we fear that we won’t like the answer, or we fear that the person we’re reading for won’t like the answer. Next time this happens to you, try this…Pick the card up. Ask yourself, “If I DID know the meaning of this card, what would it be?”

I learned this trick in hypnotherapy school, and it works wonders! You can also use it in daily life. If you’re feeling confused about a decision you need to make and feel like you have no clue what to do, ask yourself, “If I DID know what to do in this situation, what would it be?”

I know it sounds too easy to be true, but it really works. Try it out and let me know how it works for you.


Melanie Jade 🙂
