Choose your lessons in life and choose wisely
Choose a Major Arcana card that excites you and that will have a positive effect on your life. Choose a card that is often absent when you read for yourself. Pull it out. Find out why you chose that card and what lesson you want to learn from it. Remember to only choose positive lessons that will enrich your life, for example, the Sun will teach you to be joyful. Being joyful is a very important lesson because we can not be masters until we know how to have joy.
