Before starting to read any type of fortune telling cards, you should be aware a few facts about Tarot.
Firstly, tarot in ancient times were used as a teaching tool. The name Tarot derived from Sanskrit word Tara, meaning road, passing over or beyond, passage, crossroad, ferry. It is also called Tarita, a form of Durga, also known as carca, meaning inquiry, discussion, recollection, which is referring to Akasha, i.e. that we already possess this knowledge and all we have to do is to remind ourselves of this wisdom.
For this reason you can also use only one card for the inquirer question. For example if the inquirer is worried to take his or her next step (study, new job), the Reader can chose the card of Child and explain the inquirer that sometimes it is necessary to take an apparently risky step. The card is pointing out that it is important to trust your judgement and plan for the future but to do so wisely. The child card representing trust, ideals, hope of a brighter tomorrow of better understanding. Even if the experiences lead to failure they do not represent danger, as with failure you will gain knew knowledge, important life experiences from which you can learn and apply it in your next step.

The Meaning of Child translated from Sanskrit Origin.The card of Child called Zizu in Sanskrit, meaning student. The other word described the Child is Akseti i.e. abide,(known as Ascetic) combined with stoka, (Stoic) meaning spark. The reason for Ascetic to follow Hestia (the card of House) and the Phoenix (The card of Visitor) is to represent the achievement of balance. (your house representing you), the Phoenix (visitor) is the creation of trinity, constituting harmony between mind, body and spirit. Upon trinity you have reached the Matrix (mother, womb from Sanskrit Matra) and become a child, a Zizu, meaning scholar, a student who is eager to master the sacred knowledge, the harmony which will connect you in the future to Akasha.
The Trinity created upon enlightenment between the different spaces, body, mind, spirit, and the Matrix protection will guide you though the difficulties and obstacles (vagara), to overcome for one day to become a vaida, a wise man. the Matrix also known as Rhea, meaning ascending, rising, sprout, germinating, sprouting, growth, blossom. It also known as recana in Sanskrit, meaning purging, cleansing. Here however it is referring to spiritual growth, as a child, a student (Zizu) have a lot of difficulty to overcome, a lot to learn, hence the Spirit becomes the mother, a guide, who is helping in spiritual growth, and protection. To understand what are the elements in spiritual growth, we need to understand what it means.
Each discipline is intended as a guide for helping us to recover our essential natures, specifically concerning moral behaviour and intend to assist in the growth of the Being. Moral action, moral speech, wholesome livelihood, and moral effort. Specific aids for nurturing wisdom: Real spirituality begins when that connection is established. First, by accessing and acquiring connection, so that we no longer believe in the Creator or theorise about our inner Self, but we know it. We can experience it, we can taste it, we can touch it, we can talk to it, we can get information from it. We know what it is from experience. That is the beginning of the real spiritual growth. That Being is not a terrestrial self, but it is related to the universal spirit. Rhea, (from Sanskrit Ruha, i.e. growing and recana, cleansing) is guiding us to find this real spiritual person within us, the connection in the dialogue with our inner being. This connection is not vague, invented, or fantasised. It is experienced. True spirituality is the direct connection between the terrestrial person and the spiritual man, Atman (self), our inner world, the psyche, the soul.The Gypsy way of life is the original idea behind stoics and ascetic lifestyle. It was never an intention to go extreme as extremism is captivity.
The Gypsy lifestyle advocating restraint with respect to actions of body, speech, and mind. Abiding, acting, according to the law of purity, teaches a deeper level of satisfaction and it will bring fulfilment which cannot be found in sensual pleasures and desires, therefore it is promoting the pursuit of inner peace by exploring yourself “know thyself” and with common sense “nothing in excess”. Abiding, (askesis) prescribes a path of ahimsa (non-violence) towards all living beings, and emphasises spiritual independence and equality between all forms of life. Therefore, the aim is to conquer desires, Sanskrit verb root jin ("to conquer"). It refers to a battle with passions and bodily pleasures that the Jain ascetics undertake. This battle or the obstacle the child is faced with becomes more clear with the image of Desire, (card of the Sirens), the advise left in mythology of different temptations. Those who win this battle will find happiness and balance, becoming a Jina (conqueror). The term Jaina is therefore used to refer in laymen term as ascetics of this tradition. Read more >>
