Tarot 101: The 3 Steps of a Tarot Reading

Learn Tarot the easy way in three simple steps

Brigit Esselmont

Here, you’ll get a quick crash course in Tarot, learning what the Tarot is and how it works.

What Is Tarot?

Ultimately, the Tarot is a deck of 78 cards that are enriched with images and symbols that help you connect with your intuition to make better, more spiritually-grounded decisions in your life. Many people turn to Tarot cards to help them understand and move forward in their relationships, career, finances, personal development, and major life changes.

The Tarot can also be used to help you understand your past, present, or future. It doesn’t tell you exactly what will happen — like the date when you’ll meet your future husband, or the first letter of your unborn baby’s name — but it does give you some insight into where you may be headed if you continue on your current path. It also gives you the space to make powerful and positive changes now so you can manifest your goals and your dreams in the future. What this means is that the future is indeed in your hands!

Every Tarot deck is typically made up of 78 cards, each with its own unique picture, symbolism, and meaning. While there are commonly agreed meanings for each card, it’s also very powerful to discover your own meanings of the cards as you connect intimately and intuitively with their images and symbols. Creating this kind of personal connection with the Tarot cards is where the magic happens, and what makes reading Tarot so special.

How does a Tarot reading work?

Ultimately, a Tarot reading boils down to a 3-step process:

Step 1: Create your question.

  • How can I find love this year?
  • Where is my career heading, and how can I make the most of my talents?

Step 2: Shuffle and lay out the cards.

As you’re shuffling, make sure you’re concentrating on your question to channel your energy into the reading and layout of the cards. Then when you feel ready, lay out the cards for your reading.

Step 3: Interpret the cards and answer your question.

This is the fun part! Go through each card and interpret what it means for you. Also, look at the reading as a whole and see what important messages and answers come through for you in the reading.

Of course, there’s a little more to a Tarot reading than these three simple steps, but if you’re just starting out, follow these three steps and you’ll be reading Tarot in no time! While some people prefer to have their Tarot cards read by professional Tarot readers, learning to read Tarot for yourself is like having the universe on speed dial! It’s such a gift to yourself to connect deeply with your intuition and have the Tarot cards as your spiritual guide.

Egyptian Tarot Card of the Day

The Hanged Man

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hanged Man is making you aware of an internal struggle that could relate to alcohol, drugs, or other substance abuse. You may like to beat yourself up more then you need to, pushing yourself against the pain that has become your teacher. Alcohol, drugs, and other substance abuses are typically related to these problems, but your salvation is listening to your inner voice that wants to invert the internal Hanged Man and make him stand upright.

Your Daily Love Tarot Card for March 27 is The Devil

Daily Love Tarot Card

The Devil

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step back if you sense a toxic union. It comes in the form of a smothering relationship. Perhaps someone misuses and manipulates you. Or, they are afraid to get too close. You have control that includes the ability to have power over the amount of love you give out. You stop giving it the moment you feel something is wrong. You do not doubt your decision before you even verbalize it.

Your Daily Tarot Card for March 27th is Queen of Cups

Tarot Card of the Day

Queen of Cups

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Traditionally, representing the energy of a Queen, this card traditionally portrays a sensitive, vulnerable, omniscient woman who offers unconditional love. She is supremely empathic — sometimes to a fault. Her caring nature exposes her to everybody else’s emotions and needs.

This person sometimes has difficulty identifying her own best interests in the midst of her responsiveness to others. As a result, she sometimes appears slightly unfocused or perhaps overwhelmed, filled as she is with “spirits”. She represents the Grail Queen, as well as the Goddess of the Family.

Witch’s Rune

Wiccan Priestess

Witch’s Rune

Darksome night and silvery moon
East then south then west then north
To thee we sing a witch’s tune
To call the ancient powers forth

Cup for water, airy sword
A pentacle to touch the earth
Fiery wand all in accord
Lady guide us to rebirth

Cord and censer, scourge and knife
Power of the witch’s blade
Waken all ye into life
Come ye as the charm is made

Queen of heaven, queen of hell
Ancient huntress of the night
Listen as we sing this spell
All love and pleasures are your rites

By all the powers of land and sea
By the light of moon and sun
As I will, so mote it be
Chant this spell, so be it done
