How to Read Tarot: For Beginners

If you have ever watched witchy movies or visited the psychic's tent at a festival, you may have wondered how they seemingly predict the future or so easily give advice with their tarot cards. While it there is some intuition to it, you can learn how to handle a tarot deck and gain your own insight. All you need is a tarot deck of your choice and a willingness to learn.

Step 1: Find a deck. You will obviously need a deck of your own to read tarot. Go to a bookstore, browse online, or go to a nearby shop that sells them and let your intuition guide you. The deck you pick has to call to you and pique your interest; you will have no doubt on which one is meant to be yours, as it will leave you with a nagging feeling to get it.

Step 2: Get to know your deck. Look through your card guidebook, shuffle the deck, go through the deck card-by-card, meditate with your cards, or whatever else it takes for you to feel familiar with and comfortable with your tarot cards. You want to feel a companionship to them and get a feel for the "voice" in your cards.

Step 3: Do a simple tarot spread. Pull a card or two and look up the meanings in your guidebook or online. I learned a lot about what I know about tarot card meanings by doing daily one-card pulls and researching what the number, major or minor arcana, or symbols on the individual card meant. It is a slow way to learn, but if you keep at it you will eventually have a working knowledge of tarot and card meanings.

Step 4: Learn tarot numerology. Learn the meanings behind the numbers, as they often repeat lessons even in different suits. Learning what the numbers in tarot mean will help you a lot in reading more intuitively and without a guidebook later on.

Step 5: Learn the major/minor arcanas & what the different suits mean. There is no better way to learn tarot than to find the pattern behind what swords, pentacles, wands, and cups mean and applying it to your readings. You will find that there is a pattern between the suits, symbols, and numbers that will allow you to eventually read tarot for yourself, without a guidebook.

If you want to go ahead and memorize keywords for each individual card in the major arcana, that will definitely help you as well.

Step 6: Upright/Reverse Tarot Meanings. Cards can be read upright or in reverse and both have mostly opposite meanings. If you end up memorizing the upright meanings of each card in your deck, you can almost be assured that the reverse is true for any upside-down cards you pull(but not always).

Practicing by pulling both right-side up and reverse cards and looking up the meanings/applying it to your current/past/future situations will allow you to learn what each card & reverse reading means faster than reading a list and trying to memorize.

Step 7: Learn Tarot Symbolism. Depending on the deck, Tarot can be packed full of symbolism. From the animals, plants, and figures in the cards, to the numbers and astrological symbols, some cards are lush with symbols you can use to gain insight to what they mean. If you are serious about becoming a tarot reader you should learn what the symbols in your cards depicts and try to come up with your own meanings. Compare your meanings to more formal cards and see where you can improve your interpretations. This is a great way to come up with more unique readings, as many just interpret tarot through guidebooks, tarot numerology, the suits, and minor/major arcana.

Read. Read as much as you can about tarot and apply your knowledge to the cards through practice.

Practice, practice, practice. I can't stress enough how important it is to practice readings yourself and continue to look up keyword meanings and explanations until you're comfortable enough to intuitively read for yourself.
