Tarot is a symbolic map of consciousness that encompasses our journey through life, both spiritually and practically. Tarot reading is the practice of determining wisdom and guidance through a specific spread (or design) of the Tarot cards.
However, contrary to popular belief, cards are not limited to fortune telling, and one does not have to be a psychic to do Tarot readings. The cards are intended to provide insight into the innermost truths of your higher self.
In other words, the cards provide an evolved awareness of what you already know inside.
