- Looks of the place matters a lot when it comes to tarot. The client should get a feel of the mysticism when (s)he enters your place or sees if it’s an online reading for the client. Impression takes a really important place, much before you get a chance to make actual reading for the client.
- The same goes for the tarot reader. Even before you get to make a reading, you are leaving an impression and the client is judging as to how much he credibility he should give to your analysis. So, presentation has to be given importance.

So, combine your intuition with the meaning of the cards in the places of their appearance and relay accordingly.

Keep negative connotations at bay and speak in a way to highlight how a tough time shapes the person for a better time by building a stronger character.
No amount of teachings or an online tarot course certificate can prepare you as a professional reader if you choose to ignore the above important points. Theory after all is theory until practiced and your tarot teacher would expose you to everything needed to set up you for a successful tarot career.
