A Beginner's Guide to Reading Tarot

Tarot cards are a tool used in divination to gain insight and guidance about the past, present, or future. If you're interested in learning how to read tarot cards, here are some basic steps to get started:

  1. Get a deck of tarot cards: There are many different types of tarot cards available, so choose a deck that resonates with you. Some popular decks include the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, the Thoth deck, and the Marseille deck. My personal favorite are the Rider-Waite-Smith deck because they are filled with juicy imagery and symbiology.

  2. Familiarize yourself with the cards: Each tarot card has its own unique meaning, so it's important to study and memorize the cards. You can do this by reading books, watching videos, or taking courses on tarot. Alternative, you can read the cards intuitively. I offer a six-week in-depth course on reading the tarot intuitively.

  3. Decide on a spread: A tarot spread is a specific layout of cards that can help you answer a particular question or gain insight into a specific area of your life. Popular spreads include the three-card spread, the Celtic cross spread, and the horseshoe spread.

  4. Shuffle the cards: Shuffle the cards thoroughly while focusing on your question or intention.

  5. Lay out the cards: Once you've shuffled the cards, lay them out in the chosen spread. Each position in the spread represents a different aspect of the question or situation you're inquiring about.

  6. Interpret the cards: Each card in the spread will have a different meaning, and it's up to you to interpret them based on their position in the spread and your own intuition.

  7. Practice, practice, practice: The more you practice reading tarot cards, the more you'll develop your own unique style and intuition. It's important to keep an open mind and trust your intuition when interpreting the cards.

Remember, tarot cards are a beautiful tool for gaining insight and guidance. They can be a powerful tool for self-discovery, but it's important to use them with respect and integrity.
