It’s useful to date your entries, even if you’re only adding a new keyword or phrase.
Being able to look back over the years at your entries is fascinating and gives you a
deeper insight into the depth of tarot and your readings.

Keep your journal away from prying eyes if you don’t like the idea of anyone reading
your inner thoughts. Privacy means you can open up in what you write, without
worrying about what others may think.

Having a unique tarot journal is one of the special joys of working with tarot.

For a more transforming exercise with a card, you can “enter into”
the card and just observe and interact with it. You can record your
own voice and walk yourself through it as a guided meditation or if

you prefer, just get yourself in a relaxed state and let it unfold without any
promptings. Either way will bring lots of messages from the cards just for you. You

decide what works best.

Start by studying the card. Notice as many details as you can. The colors, symbols, the
background details. Look at the expressions on the faces. Once you have done this,
close your eyes and picture the card in your mind with as much detail as you can

remember. Now look at the card and see what you left out of the picture. Do this a few
times until you feel you see the card in as much detail as possible.

Tarot cards are a basically a deck of 78 cards which have pictures on them. These
pictures are full of symbolism, meanings and are rife with insights into the human story.
A study of the cards will often reveal a lot of hidden depths and knowledge which goes a
long way in understanding oneself and providing guidance and help to other people.

While it is not easy to learn how to read Tarot cards, it is not an impossible or a difficult
process either. All you need is an open mind and a lot of imagination. People often say
that you need to be psychic in order to do a Tarot card reading. I say, that we all possess
this inherent capability within us - it is just that we have not exercised our ‘psychic
muscle’ as such.

Tarot cards can help us exercise these ‘psychic muscles’ and help us ‘kick start’ our

Start a journal used only for your tarot learning. Some people use a 3-ring notebook
with pages for each card. Others use a simple spiral. Whatever is easiest and works best
for you will be just fine. Include realizations, dreams related to the cards, quotations
from your one tarot book, sketches and
anything else that strikes your fancy.

4. Do a daily draw

More days than not you should pull a
card out of your deck. If you miss a day,
let it go and start again when you
remember. Think about the card during
the day. Keep the card with you if
possible. Meditate on the image. Write
about it in your journal.

3. Engage the spirit of tarot

Whatever you may believe about how it
works, there is an order and intelligence
behind tarot. While the cards themselves are paper, the life behind them is something
more. Befriend the tarot. Treat tarot with respect, and it will treat you with respect.

2. Carry your deck with you

Get used to glancing through your deck in spare moments. Put them on the table next
to you when your working at the computer. Keep them in your bag. Put them under
your pillow when you sleep, or on the table next to your bed.

The time you leave your cards behind will be the time you regret not having them.

To be a good tarot reader, you must learn how to appropriately interpret the cards. The best tarot

readers are those who have learned how to interpret the cards using their own personal

associations. This is not the type of information you can get out of a book. Rather, it comes from

your own identification to the cards and their imagery. This is not to say that books on the tarot

don't have a place in the learning process. They can be a valuable reference guide for whenever

you are unsure of something. They are great resources for tarot history, tarot spreads, and for

general tarot card meanings.

While having a good understanding of this information is certainly important, developing your

own personal relationship with the cards is a much more effective and rewarding way to learn

tarot than trying to memorize information from a book. To do this you will need to put to

familiarize yourself with the cards. I usually recommend taking half an hour each day to spend

studying and journaling. It’s important that you do this in a place where you feel relaxed and

calm. You will also want to make sure that you won’t be interrupted, so try to avoid any


To begin, you will need your own tarot deck, a notebook and a pen. Choose a place in your home

that encourages you to relax. You may want to burn some incense, light some candles, or put

some gentle music on. Let go of the day's events.

When you feel ready, pick up your tarot deck and start shuffling. Try to set your mind free of any

fears or expectations. Close your eyes and relax. Take the time to slow your breathing and sit

with your feelings. If anything pops out at you make sure to acknowledge it in your journal.

Often, when we fail to acknowledge our feelings or issues, our ability to read the cards becomes

skewed. Unprocessed emotions have a tendency to cause us to lose objectivity and neutrality.

When you feel at peace, draw a card from anywhere in the deck. Place it down in front of you in

an upright position. Take a moment to really examine the card. In your notebook write down the

name of the card and answer the following questions when they apply.
