My favorite method to clarify a tarot meaning: spin the card.
Instead of pulling additional cards, I prefer to spin the unclear card on my tarot table. With my eyes closed, I then stop the card with my index finger. The detail my finger lands on clarifies the message. 🕯️
For example, let’s spin The Hermit from the Rider-Waite Smith!
My finger lands on the snow beneath him, emphasizing emotional isolation and detachment in the context of my reading. I now know which aspect of the card to focus on.
What I like about this method is that it allows the card to clarify itself, in its own voice.
The small details of our cards can speak loudly too.
