Use your spreadcloth as a tool to make a pre-reading assessment of your client's personality and mood
Some tarot readers like to allow the client to choose the spreadcloth for a tarot reading, when the reader has several. The client's choice may give valuable insights into his/her personality, which may help you make your reading more accurate and focused.
How to use color to better understand your client:
First, name the colors in the cloth out loud in front of the client.
Then ask your client which color she likes best or which color she relates to the most.
Thank her/him and tell the client that it helps you to tune into her/his vibrations, which it does.
You will have immediate insight into the personality that you are dealing with. (It's a bit like asking for their astrological sign or birthdate to gain focus and insights for your tarot interpretations.)
Before you begin, of course, be sure that you have memorized the meanings of the colors associations or have printed out a chart to consult.
A color association-personality chart is available in the LEARN section of our website under the title "Personality Reading" or visit the Spreadcloth Collection to see which tarot reading cloths can help you with your Personality Readings.
