Tarot 101: The Basics
So you want to explore Tarot, but you don't know where to begin? You're not alone. Many Tarot newbies find they are confused and intimidated when first learning the art of Tarot cards.
Choosing a Tarot Spread
Tarot spreads are the patterns in which the 78 cards in a Tarot deck are laid out for a reading. Each layout has a unique energy, and each card within the spread represents one aspect of the reading as a whole. Common positions include:
Fear of Tarot Readings
Have you ever been scared to get a Tarot reading? Most people find the insight we can get from Tarot cards thrilling, but there are some who find the process intimidating or frightening. If you're one of those few, it's time to face your fear of Tarot so you can move past it.
The Major Arcana Tarot Cards
Most classic Tarot decks are comprised of 78 cards, divided into a Major Arcana (22 cards) and a Minor Arcana (56 cards). The Major Arcana cards, also called trump cards, are important because they represent significant life events on a large scale
Tarot Cards of the Zodiac
Each zodiac sign is linked to one of the Tarot cards in the Major Arcana. Most of these powerful cards have images of archetypal figures that represent the essence of a type of person. Animals are also used to portray human characteristics.

The Power of Nothing
The nine single-digit numbers, 1 through 9, each have very specific, easy to recognize attributes. The 0 (zero), however, has no attributes, no character traits, no description whatsoever. It's a blank page but with a twist. The zero is the chameleon, the great enhancer, the multiplier and the gateway to infinity and immortality.What are the numbers that make up your Numerology?

The Varied Personalities of Numbers
Numbers, like people, are not always as predictable as you might wish them to be. Each of the single-digit numbers has a wide range of qualities, many of them apparently paradoxical, as is the case with people. Some of their qualities are hiding in the wings until circumstances send them to center stage.
Dating by the Numbers
In Numerology, our Sun Number characteristics can be great compatibility clues when it comes to love. Every Sun Number has specific strengths and weaknesses in the romance department, so look up yourself and your sweetie and do the love math!
New Year, New Numbers
I'm thoroughly convinced that one of the reasons we feel attuned energetically to the whole idea of a new year being equal to new beginnings connects to Numerology.
2014 Numerology Predictions
2014 is the year when we become aware -- aware of the destructive nature and the inherent danger that exist in a world of extremes. We will begin to see a trend this year, through all areas of human life, to search for ways to bring us together.

How to Phrase
It's important to realize that if you ask the appropriate kind of questions, you will have a more satisfying Tarot or I-Ching experience. Readings work best when you are looking for greater insight, wise advice or an idea of which way the wind is blowing. They are NOT designed to answer questions asking for data or to give exact predictions about the future.
