SunChariot, I'm stealing that idea too. I don't really want to read for other people, and so I'm always looking for ways to use my decks.

That said, thinking back to when I did...I ONLY read for myself for the first 8 months of so before even starting to read for others. So there was a lot of practicing then.

I never was a fan of the daily draws personally. I tried once or twice then found it was just not my thing.

What I did do and I found it a fascinating way to learn was to ask about life. I asked about life and how it works. All the questions to things that no one knows for sure. Like what is Destiny, how does it work, what is the energy of life, how am I connected to it, what is my life purpose, what good can I do in this world around me, ....I could go on endlessly with those and always be fascinated. And the answer tend to be pretty fascinating too.

At the time I had an e-zine that came to my Inbox every day containing various different statements on the mysteries of life. Those almost always turned into readings for me. They would spark my curiosity.

I once even did a reading for a bird that was sitting on my window sill. He was looking in at me while I was looking out at him. I asked my cards what he was thinking as he was looking at me. I thought that was a fun question. It proved useful too. LOL

I remember the cards said that he was wondering why I was not outdoors on this beautiful day enjoying the beautiful warm sunshine and cool breezes. He could not seem to understand why I would not CHOOSE to be outdoors on a day like that, was I imprisoned or stuck there somehow, behind the glass? No one would choose that (to not be outdoors) on a day like this. That was completely obvious and a certainty to him. He was confused. Why was I not outdoors?

I promptly went outdoors after the reading and enjoyed the heck out of the weather and day afterwards. LOL Birds are smart

But the readings on the nature of life and how it works, honestly, those are still my very favourites. Such amazing things come up. [emoji813]

Such a cute story with the bird! [emoji4]
I also do philosophical readings from time to time and yes, it is a very enriching experience.

TAROT meditations are wonderful (pm me if you want my my method).

ALSO there is a book called Tarot for Self Discovery that is a lot of fun and has some really fun unique exercises.

I'm going to have to get that book. ^

I don't read predictively for myself; I do read about current issues or states of mind. I sort of treat it like astrology. Psychological readings are sometimes very informative.

Very. They can really help us live our best lives.

Like when we keep on doing things that sabotage our best efforts to achieve a goal, reaings in why this is happening and how to turn it off (stop doing it) can really help us live our best lives.

Instead of predictive readings asking what the future will be, I tend to prefer to ask the cards HOW to create the future I want. I much prefer the active approach to the future than the passive one. It's our life to create how we want it.

E.g. I prefer to ask the cards what steps I can take that will be the most likely to get me a promotion (and then to take them) than to just ask if I will get it

If I were starting out in a new relationship I'd much prefer to ask which qualities I'd need to embrace and what I need to know to make the relationship a truly loving one, than to just ask if the relationship will be a loving one.
