I started Tarot about 3 years ago but never took it very seriously - Astrology (birth charts and personality) and Numerology were more interesting to me, and the cards never seemed to make much sense. However, on a trip to South Africa I visited a Tarot Reader and was stunned at the accuracy of what she told me about myself (the future she predicted didn't, or has not yet, come true!). Since then I started using tarot a bit more but rather than predicting the future it was more seeking guidance for me.
However, very recently I had my heart broken and for some reason the cards have stopped talking to me - either because my emotional frame of mind has been messed up or they are not saying what I want them to say and I'm not listening. When browsing the forum (something I have done for the first time on this site) I came across a forum topic of a user asking for a reading and I thought "why not", so that's why I joined
The cards I use are the Russian Tarot of St Petersburg, and I most frequently do Celtic Cross or Yes/No reading (where you turn over the cards until the third ace and upright = yes, reversed = no)
