LEARN THE BASICS OF HOW TO READ TAROT

We believe anyone can read tarot – including YOU! No special gifts required.

All you need is to say YES to your intuition and trust yourself.

Everything we teach on Tarot Group is designed to help you access your intuition, read Tarot with confidence, and create the life you want to live.

Let’s start with the basics of learning tarot card reading…

WHAT IS TAROT, REALLY?

The tarot is a deck of 78 cards, each with its own imagery, symbolism and story. The 22 Major Arcana cards represent life’s karmic and spiritual lessons, and the 56 Minor Arcana cards reflect the trials and tribulations that we experience on a daily basis.

Some may say that tarot cards are simply ink on paper. However, what I have discovered from reading the tarot cards daily for over twenty years is this:

TAROT IS THE STORYBOOK OF OUR LIFE, THE MIRROR TO OUR SOUL, AND THE KEY TO OUR INNER WISDOM.

Every spiritual lesson we meet in our lives can be found in the seventy-eight tarot cards. And when we consult the tarot, we’ll get shown the exact lessons we need to learn and master to live an inspired life. It’s like holding up a mirror to yourself so that you can access your subconscious mind and tap into the wisdom (and answers) that lives in us all.

Tarot is perfect for self-development, making choices, manifesting goals, coaching others, planning a business, meditating—you name it. Simply ask a question, pull a card, and dive into the imagery of the card to give you instant access to your inner wisdom and the answer you need.

HOW DOES THE TAROT WORK?

While many people believe that tarot will tell you the future, making predictions are not really what tarot cards are about.

WHEN IT COMES TO TAROT, FORTUNE-TELLING IS OUT, AND INTUITION IS IN, ESPECIALLY IF YOU WANT TO CREATE YOUR IDEAL FUTURE AND MANIFEST YOUR GOALS.

The most powerful way to read the tarot is to use the cards to access your intuition and your inner wisdom. The imagery in the cards give you instant access to your subconscious mind and your intuition. And from this place of inner power and wisdom, you can discover how to make positive changes now so you can manifest your goals and your dreams in the future.

HOW TO LEARN TAROT

Are you ready to start learning to read the tarot cards, dear tarot Beginner? Here are four simple steps to learn tarot:

STEP 1

Choose a Tarot deck that’s right for you. The Rider Waite deck is a great place to start for the Tarot Beginner.

STEP 2

Get to know your tarot cards. Spend time looking at each tarot card – the symbols, stories and images – and get a feel for the ‘energy’ of the card. Take note of the names of the cards so you can easily recognise them when you pull them from the deck.

STEP 3

Learn the tarot card meanings. Discover the traditional meanings, symbolism, and the numerological and elemental associations of the cards. You don’t have to memorise everything – simply learn the basics to get you started.

STEP 4

Draw a tarot card a day. Ask your Higher Self, “What do I need to know for today?” As you go through your day, reflect on what the card means to you and create a personal and intuitive connection with the cards

Take these four steps and, over time, you’ll create a stronger connection with your tarot cards and your intuition, so that you can live an inspired life.
