What is Tarot

A psychic reading using tarot cards is a commonly used method.  This method takes into account the divinatory meaning of a card and the proximity of other cards in relation to it.  Sometimes if the card is upside down, it weakens the meaning or even reverses it. It depends on the individual psychic giving the reading on how the card is interpreted. Usually, the Psychic has the person being read  handle or shuffle the cards in some manner or does it for them. The cards are then placed into a particular spread and interpreted. There are numerous types of spreads and once again it depends on the individual psychic and his or her preference. Tarot cards have different pictures on them and there are many different kinds of artistic designs and decks one can choose from.

What is Numerology

Numerology is the study of numbers, but a psychic reading can be done using numerology. Just like in astrology, a personal numerology reading is a breakdown of an individual’s personal numbers or life path number, which are derived from ones birth-date and or name. From these numbers one can receive insight as to what life experiences or themes will be challenging, and repetitive. These numbers also give insights as to what natural abilities a person may have as well. Some believe that a soul chooses when to be born and therefore, one could derive a life path number representing the life’s purpose or journey for the soul.
The life path number (or soul number) is derived by taking one’s entire birth-date -month ,day,and year and adding its sum. Then from that sum, reducing it to a single number.
For example:
A birth-date of  July 5th 1990 would be derived as follows
7+5+ 1+9+9+0=31
The 31 then becomes 3+1 =4  and 4 would represent the life number.
The same procedure can be done for one’s name.
Each letter has a number that corresponds with it.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
A B C D E F G H I
J K L M N O P Q R
S T U V W X Y Z
 
 For example:
Joe Smith would be
1+6+5(Joe)  + 1+4+9+2+8(Smith)= 12(Joe)+24(Smith)
1+2+2+4 =9
9 would be Joe Smith’s personality number.
This number would give insights into Joe’s personality.
Numbers are considered to have particular energy traits or vibrational patterns assigned to them. The metaphysical traits are as follows:
1-Individuality, will, ego
2-Cooperation, peace
3-Creativity, self expression
4-Discipline, work
5-Freedom, change, free will
6-Service, responsibility
7-Wisdom, knowledge
8-Power, authority
9-Compassion
The life number and personality number would then be looked at extensively as it pertained to the individual. By looking at the number an individual can see insights as to what conflicts, challenges, and abilities one would have in life or within his or her personality as it pertained to the number.

Certain metaphysical influences traits are attributed to each of the zodiac signs and by looking at those traits one can get insights into personalities and behavior patterns as in a psychic reading.

There are 24 runes in the Elder Futhark which is what you see above. Each rune is not only a letter in an old Germanic alphabet, but bears a primary definition of “secret” and must be thought of as a holy concept that must be expressed in concealment. These were ancient symbols used in writing on stones, metal, and wood. The symbols had a religious or magical meaning for those who wrote them. Each rune should be viewed as having a highly complex nature that deals with different forces of nature and energy and from which it flows. The runes origins are Teutonic or Germanic in nature. Runes are used for magic and divination. Runes can be used magically in many ways. The most common way is to inscribe them into talismans or objects for a specific purpose. Some use them for divination or a psychic reading.
