Tarot reading is an ancient art and many people will be familiar with what might be involved in a tarot reading. In fact tarot readers have been around for centuries and tarot cards were originally based on simple everyday playing card packs.The earliest tarot decks were hand painted and for this reason would not have been widely available or affordable to the average person, remaining a privilege to the upper class in society. It was not until the invention of printing press that this changed and mass production of the cards became available. Due to the fact that tarot cards were originally hand painted, there were only a small number of early cards produced.Tarot cards weren’t originally used for fortune telling, the original purpose of the cards was for playing games, the actual games played varied between cultures although the most popular was the French tarot game known as ‘tarock’.The tarot reader will usually only have one dedicated pack of cards that they become “linked” to. Only the tarot reader can connect with their pack and this enables them to make a reading. Anyone can buy a pack of tarot cards and many people throughout history have attempted to conduct tarot readings themselves. However, it is not just about the pack of cards but the gift that the tarot reader possesses, they must have extra sensory abilities and unique powers to connect with the past, present and future of the person having the reading.

Amanda Healy is at the Tara Open Studio on Thursdays and Sundays from 12pm-4pmThe readings are walk-in and do not need to be booked, though specific appointment times can be made by calling Amanda on 087 786 7545

Amanda has been reading Tarot for over 15 years. I do readings and teach the Rider-Waite system of Tarot readings. 
I use Tarot to help me connect with spirit and as a tool to help you the client explore what needs attention in your life, what direction to take and what options are available to you. A sort of life mapping so to speak. I read Intuitively and psychically. Using the cards and reading the person. I believe that the tarot is a tool to help empower people and find wisdom within themselves. I believe that the tarot usually reflects what is going on in your mind and often confirms what you intuitively know yourself, thereby giving you the confidence that you are on the right path. 
I work through communication using the Celtic Cross and Three Card Spread. You can ask questions if you wish and direct the reading if needs be to what you feel needs attention in your life at that time. My readings usually forecast up to a year in advance. I am also a medium and sometimes loved ones will come in to help with guidance for particular issues but this is not guaranteed.
