As Tarot reader i believed in the accuracy of the tarot cards helping individuals to unfold the future but still it depends on us bec. we control our own destiny,it is how we will take this opportunity & how to make the most out of it.
Time Required: Varied
1.First, before you read for someone else, make sure you've brushed up on the basics of Tarot. It's important that you study and learn the meanings of the 78 cards in the deck. Study the major arcana, as well as the four suits, so that you know what each card represents. Readers who are more intuitive may get slightly different meanings than the traditional "book taught" representations, and that's okay. The point is, know what you're doing before you do it for someone else. Meanings that are only partially learned will result in only a partial reading.
2.Decide whether you feel comfortable using "reversals" in your divination. Many people read a card the same way no matter how it turns up. Others follow the reversed meanings that are applied to each card. It's up to you whether you use reversed meanings or not, but it's a good idea to be consistnet. In other words, if you use reversals, use them every time they appear, not just when it's convenient. Remember, as the cards are shuffled they will become very well mixed.
3.Before you begin your reading, select a card to represent the Querent -- the person for whom you are reading. This is sometimes referred to as a Significator card. In some traditions, the Significator is selected based on age and maturity level -- a King would be a good choice for an older man, while a Page or Knight would do for a younger, less experienced male. Some readers select a card based on personality -- your earth-mother best friend may be perfectly represented by the Empress, or your really devout uncle by the Hierophant, and that's okay too.
4.It's a good idea to have the Querent shuffle the deck so the cards can pick up on his or her energies. If you feel the Querent has some negativity attached to him, cleanse the deck after the reading. If you really don't want the Querent to shuffle, at the very least you should allow him or her to cut the deck into three piles once you've completed the shuffling. As he does so, the Querent should silently ask a simple but important question on which the reading will focus. Ask the Querent not to share this question with you until you've completed the reading.
5.Decide which layout you want to use -- some people prefer the Celtic Cross, others the Gypsy method, or you can make up your own. Start at the top of the deck, and place the cards in the order dictated by your spread. As you turn the cards over to be read, flip them from one side to the other, rather than vertically -- if you turn them vertically, a reversed card will end up right-side up and vice versa. Place all the cards in the layout in front of you at once, before you begin reading any of them. Once all the cards are laid out, set the rest of the deck aside.
6.Give a quick glance over the spread, and look for any patterns. For example, is there more of one suit than others? Are there a lot of court cards, or an absence of the Major Arcana? Note the suits as well, because this will give you an idea of the possible direction of the reading.
Many Swords: conflict and strife
Many Wands: big changes
Many Pentacles/Coins: financial issues
Many Cups: love and relationship issues
Many major arcana: the Querent's question could be controlled by other people, rather than himself
Many 8's: change and forward movement in life
Many Aces: powerful energy of the suit's element
7.Now that you've looked them over, it's time to get down to the nitty-gritty, and do your reading!

He is fixed in his opinions and refuses to budge once he has made up his mind. He is steadfast and loyal. He does not like deceit in any form.

You can expect that if he becomes your friend and then your lover, he will eventually be your husband or partner for life. If you are a male and over 40, this card may very well represent yourself and it is time to acknowledge where you are on your life's path and perhaps now take time out to relax a little, maybe take the family on an extended overseas holiday and just unwind for awhile. The world won't stop turning if you take leave from your working responsibilities and spend some time with your loved ones, who probably would really appreciate being around you at this time.

The MagicianBriefly: Unusual magical powers that has the ability to bring you anything that your heart desires.In Detail...This is a card of unusual magical powers that has the ability to bring you anything that your heart desires. You only have to wish for something and it is right there in front of you. You may need to be highly discriminating lest you wish for the wrong thing, person or job or whatever, because once possessed, it may no longer be desired. Events seem to unfold at a rapid pace with this card and you may find some difficulty keeping up with the speed with which changes occur in your affairs and situations. Many decisions will need to be made during this time and it is up to you whether you adapt and go with the flow as many of your choices now will put you on a new path and then you will enjoy many new and different life experiences. The Magician can do anything. The Magician can have any position he wants, the person he desires or anything his imagination can conjure up. If he wishes to be the President of a country or the Prime Minister of a country, he can do that. All he has to do is desire it and wish for it and make it happen. If he seeks the most desired woman in the land, he can have her, marry her, have children with her. Nothing is beyond his power, which has no boundaries and no limitations. He can have wealth, title, power, prestige, love, glory, fame, anything at all that he wants or feels he needs. He has mystical and magical qualities and a power that is so subtle, it sometimes appears to go undetected. His powerful abilities are beyond comprehension and understanding by the average human being. He is unfathomable, unreachable, unless he wants you closer by his side. If this card should represent you, then you are being made aware of what your real and true talents are and that this is a favourable time to pursue your dreams. Should this card represent someone else, it may be wise to consider what it is that this person wants from you. Do they want you in their life, or out of their life. It is their wish that will come true, not yours, unless you too are also a Magician.
