Having taken a tarot reading course this weekend I feel a sense of achievement. During the course I found myself abandoning the rigid structures of so many books and simply reading with my intuition. My approach switched to a similar style to that I use when reading the runes. This proved most successful.
The lesson here is to go with your instinct. Only the readers interpretation can change. The structure is secondary. This approach can be applied to so much more than just the runes or tarot. Open your mind and see what it tells you about the world.
