Feel Free Not to Comprehend the Tarot Reading: The Querent Will Get It Even if You Don’t
Presented by Maria Luisa Salazar
It is a common mistake to try to comprehend the querent´s situation as if we were part of it, but the truth is that we are not. As Tarot readers, our job is to give clarity, to answer the querents question as objectively as possible without getting involved or letting our feelings get in the way. Since the moment we are born, we are constantly interpreting our environment. As we get older, our interpretations will change according to our own life experiences, beliefs, states of mind, and maybe the planets around us. Everything we interpret with Tarot comes from our life experiences, therefore, the querent will connect through his own comprehension of his life situation. Two people living the same situation will most likely interpret it in different manners, so do not expect as a Tarot reader to understand the situation as the querent will.

Presented by Ciro Marchetti
Looking back at almost 18 years involved with Tarot?? It’s been quite a journey. I’ll be discussing how and why I initially got involved. What was my preparation and approach, and how that changed over the years. Reviewing what hopefully worked but also what didn’t. A general summary of the power of imagery and its application to cartomancy. A creative process that required a balance of both respecting tradition but also challenging it. A closer look at a number of cards from several of my decks, with a more in depth explanation of them, pointing out details and context that may not be initially apparent. But in doing so may provide different perspectives to consider in a reading.
