Tarot for Beginners: How I Use Tarot Cards for Self Discovery & Guidance

Vistas 210 515
98% 2 067 38

Let's talk about tarot! I've been asked about my tarot routine & how I do tarot readings for myself, so here I'm sharing my basic tips to help you get started. I'm still a tarot beginner-everything I learned was from my podcast interview with Biddy Tarot, her book and my own personal practice. But tarot has been a fun tool to use for self discovery & guidance when I need it. You'll see how tarot can be a tool to strengthen your intuition and understand what your inner voice is really saying.

I feel like a lot of ppl associate it with some crazy witch craft or out of this world religion. Tarot doesn’t have to be associated with any religion, it’s all about how you intuitively interpret a card that ur inner voice/subconscious have been trynna tell/ warn you. It’s almost like a little adviser. That’s how I see tarot at least.

As for the person who turns to mediums and to spiritists, to play the harlot after them, I will also set My face against that person and will cut him off from among his people /The Holy Bible Leviticus 20-6/ Deuteronomy @-14 There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord/

Not everyone reads the cards reversed. You can do it in whatever way works for you. So spot on in using your Intuition. I use Tarot cards everyday for myself in the morning and it's changed my life! Love how you do this.

your first deck should be purchased by someone! its very cool- my best friend and i purchased and gifted eachother our decks and we are so connected to the deck, whenever we read eachother we always draw similar cards and sometimes the same cards! during our first reading by another tarot loving friend we both drew queen of cups, and i think we are that for eachother. crazy! I love tarot.

I grew up in a Christian family and these things are to be considered "evil" because they say it's witchcraft. But after watching videos of tarot readings for a month, I came to realize that it's not evil at all. I actually enjoy it because it guides me through my decisions in the future. So yeah, I'm tryna buy my own tarot cards now 😄
Amber Jacquard

YES, it is EVIL!!!! If you were smart you would turn away from this witchcraft!!!! The one & only true God JESUS CHRIST is returning soon!!!!! Do not be deceived!!! Satan HATES you & his demons will drag your soul to hell if you practice this witchcraft!!! JESUS LOVES YOU!!!!! Repent & turn away from ALL sin before it’s too late!!!!!! The scariest thing you could ever hear is God Almighty JESUS CHRIST say “depart from me I never knew you” and then your soul will be cast into hell!!!!! You will remember my warning!!!!!!!!

I’m Christian and i use them. They are just regarded as evil because many evil people use them, and they associate with witchcraft etc...but i think they’re great for asking god to show me something and finding my intuition

Yeah apparently it’s evil because only God is supposed to know your future. Words from a religious person (not me though lol) but it seems to just be made up from very close minded people who didn’t understand & weren’t willing to understand at all...

I love reading cards upright and reversed. When a card is reversed look at the image, and see if what is happening, in the card, changes due to its orientation. Is something that was , for example, held in a cup, now falling away, or spilling out? Or does the energy still hold firm despite being reversed? You can think of a reversed card as being a lighter, or less straight forward version of the energy of the card. So it is the card “lite” like kind of like a lite beer, not exactly, but consider that dynamic as a starting point. Cards that can be difficult , like the tower, or the Devil are less intense and usually the dynamic is initiated by you, rather than happening to you, when it is reversed. Tower vs Tower lite!

I ordered my tarot deck off of amazon yesterday ad I am really excited for it, but a lot of the reviews said that the guidebook that came with it wasn’t very good, especially considering I am a beginner. What type of guide book would you suggest, that also mentions reversals that I could apply to my deck? This is way late so I hope you see this! And this video is so informative and awesome!

I mean it can read the future, but the future isn't set in stone so it will only tell you what happens further down the path you are currently on, any detours will change the future.

Just FYI, you can choose not to read the cards in the reverse position. I used to and now think it’s unnecessary because there are more than enough cards in the deck with varying reasons to cover any situation. If you choose to read only right side up, have the confidence to believe the card you need to see will show up. 😉 If any reversed cards are cast, simply turn them. around.

For step 2 you cannot shuffle the cards as like plsyung cards. The cards has a higher energy and shuffling it like playing cards( dime shuffle) misunterpret the energy.

So, just something to say in general, and I don't mean this a place in a weird way, at all! So, when they say that the card "(calls out to you) it's basically saying that someone who has a special gift, an impath, can feel defiant emotions toward something. Me, myself an a impath, and have friends are impaths. If your in to zodiac, then you'll understand when I say this. People who's Sun sign (or zodiac, whichever you prefer) is under symbol of water ( such as cancer, picies, aquarius, and scorpio) are usually impaths. This is a gift use it well me brothers, and sisters......

I was kind of scared of trying tarot cuz people say it’s bad and attracts bad things but I’ve always been drawn to to it and my intentions are purely to connect with my higher self and other divine beings of love and light to help guide myself and get insight of situations, so I bought one last night! I love the deck and how it looks and I’m super excited to learn about all the cards. The deck I got is the crystal visions deck
