There are many ways of using tarot, some read by strict meanings of the cards, using numerology, planets, elements, activity/pasivity, position of the cards and many other systems.
Others tend to be intuitive and spontaneous in both meanings of catds and in number and positions of the cards.
What are your experiences and what way of card reading do you repfer?
As for me, I prefer spontaneous and intuitive ways, which come very natural to me. It ried to memorise some styles of reading like planets and celtic cross, but I forgot them in no time. I simply take as much cards as I feel needy or I take extra cards, when I do not udnerstand some card, to explain it.
