What Is Tarot Reading?

Learn what tarot reading is from renowned psychic Paula Roberts in this Howcast video.


What is a tarot reading? Well, I've got to start off by saying, that of

different tarot decks. I cannot tell you which one might speak to you. That
is your choice. I choose Mary Hanson-Roberts and the basic Rider-Waite. You
might choose something considerably more esoteric in style. That is your

Also, having chosen your tarot cards, I believe it's very important to take
care of them. To wrap them at night in silk and put them in a box. Not to be
played with by other people in your household. You will, I think if you
treat them well and they speak to you, gain a great deal out of a tarot
