Step III. Click the cards for the second time to get a classic American (Rider-Waite) Tarot explanation of their meanings. 

Step IV. Finally – concentrate for a minute. Look at the cards, then look into your soul, look into the depths of your thoughts and mental connections.  That’s where the real magic of the tarot reading hides. And that’s where you will find the best insights
