Are you struggling to find the time to learn to read
Tarot? Or perhaps you've been studying for years but
you're still not connecting with the Tarot cards.
It doesn't have to be that way.
Here are my top 5 tips to learn to read Tarot... fast.
1. Keep It Simple
Forget using the Celtic Cross if you haven't mastered
a simple 3-card spread. And forget using reversed Tarot
cards if you haven't mastered the upright cards.
Keep it simple. Don't over-complicate things.
2. Keep It Real
Wear your 'Tarot glasses' every day and see the
world as an active Tarot deck. Look at your favourite
TV star - what court card is he or she? Your day
yesterday - what Tarot card would describe it best?
The more you associate the Tarot with your daily life,
the more 'real' it becomes and the more 'you' it becomes.
Once it is a part of your own make-up and worldly
understanding, it becomes much easier to work with.
3. Focus on what matters
When you start learning something new, it's easy to
become daunted by everything you have to master to
reach your final goal.
Tarot is no exception. With 78 Tarot cards and a raft
of different scenarios and possible meanings, the
concept of doing an accurate Tarot reading without a
book by your side seems near impossible. This is why
focus is critical.
Focus on just one Suit, or just the Court Cards, or
just three-card spreads, or just reading on love and
relationships. Start small and then grow from there.
4. Tell the Story
One of the simplest techniques for reading Tarot is to
tell the story in the card.
Take a Tarot card. What do you see? Who is in the card?
What are they doing? Who or what else is present? How
are the people or objects interacting? What emotions
are being conveyed? Tell the story of what is
Now imagine you turn the page - what might happen
next? What is the outcome or result of what you're
seeing in the original picture of the card? How might
the interactions or emotions change?
And finally, what is the moral of the story in this
card? What lesson is this card trying to convey?
And suddenly, in just a few minutes, you have a rich
story from just one Tarot card. Imagine if you
incorporate this into your readings and began to tell
the story within and across all the cards in your
readings. Amazing insight comes just by explaining what
you see in the picture.
5. Practice, Practice, Practice
Practice Tarot reading from Day 1. Don't wait until
you know 'everything' about the Tarot cards -
that day may never come! Start now and build confidence
as you go. "Fake it 'til you make it", I say!
Start by practicing reading Tarot for yourself, then
for friends and family. Read for strangers by providing
free online Tarot readings - they can't see when
you quickly have to look something up in your book! Or,
