I think some people are more gifted than others. I dont think I will ever be able to read the tarot like other people do so. I have my limitations in this area. Will i get better or will i get to be as good as other people whose abilities are admirable? I dont know. All i know is that in the beginning the cards did not talk to me at all. Or they talked to me but i just didnt get it. Now it has been maybe six weeks since i started and i can say that i am getting a feeling. That is all i can tell you. I do the readings on myself on stuff that i would like to know or have intrigues about. Or on how events are going to unfold with regards to a specific situation.

Greetings to you;
The deck you have is not the easiest to learn from. When I teach the tarot, I usually suggest the Waite Rider’s deck, simply do the colors, and symbology. To learn the tarot, first learn how to look after them, you are imprinting energy on them, and at the onset, I would not suggest that you allow others to touch them. Learn the major arcana first. You can do great readings just from them. I strongly recommend that you learn the basics of astrology and numerology, as both are entwined within the tarot strongly. Keep your cards wrapped in a natural fibre cloth, such as cotton, velvet, silk, leather, then I like to also have my wrapped cards in a wood or stone box. Remember, to learn to read the spreads from right to left not left to right. There are reasons for all of this, and sadly, I would need to write a book to cover it all. Also when you lay out your cards, have a cloth just for that, such as velvet, or cotton or leather, silk is acceptable, but not usually practical. Learn a 5 card spread, rather than the celtic cross (save that for later). Keep a journal of all your spreads. There are lots of good books out there, and you should read at least 3 or 5 of them, as each author will have a different slant. Eden Gray book is a classic, she had wrote 2 (I think maybe 3) another good author is Emily Peach, and Anthony Louis, all great writers. Of the 3 that I have mentioned, Emily is the best, as she goes very deep in the tree of life (which is something to check out).
Is it true that when it comes to tarot cards you can not buy them for yourself?
I have began to study wicca and I was recently told that I am not allowed to purchase my own tarot cards they supposed to be given to me as a gift?
Answer by Dogstar Risen on the 3rd Day
It’s not that you can’t it’s just that most people are too embarrassed to admit that they bought them themselves.
“Oh, are these yours?”
“No, no…err…they were a gift.”
Answer by tuisson
oh no! I’m the only person I know who would buy me a deck. This is terrible news! What should I do with the deck I’ve been using for 12 years?
How do I get better with Tarot cards?
When ever I do a private reading I have to look up every card in the book. People always say they have different meanings in different situations. So how do I know what meaning goes where? and when?
People also keep giving examples but I can never follow how they got that answer. Please help or give me a good web site to go to. Thank you!

There are stock explanations but generally the reader will produce meanings that she thinks you want.

I usually depend more on my general impression of the card coupled with what ever the person I am reading for asks for. To me their booklet is of secondary importance. What is more important is the vibe I am getting from the cards in association with the vibe I am getting from the person for whom I am doing the reading.
Let yourself become more in tune with the card themselves rather than relying on the booklet so much. Good luck.

I would suggest that you start by just gaining information from what you feel and see from each individual card. Also, there are numerous books out there, but they are just a reference because after people become more familiar with Tarot their interpretations might be completely different or expanded on the definitions in different books. There are numerous books out there and many do not share the same type of interpretations as other books. Just try practice and patience. Also, I would suggest keeping a Tarot journal. Write down the question–always put a timeframe on the question–and the date of the reading, and after the timeframe has come up (i.e. two months) go back to the journal and see if you were correct in your interpretation. Make sure to write down the spread you used, the position each card was in, and how you interpreted the cards.
