Getting Started with Tarot Cards

Once you have your deck, it’s important to spend some time getting to know it. Look at each card and pay attention to the images, symbols, and colors. Think about what each card represents and how it might apply to different situations.

Learning the Tarot Cards

There are 78 cards in a standard tarot deck, each with its own meaning and interpretation. While it’s possible to memorize all of these meanings, it’s more important to understand the basic structure of the deck and the different types of cards.

Tarot Cards decks are divided into two main groups: the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards, each representing a major archetype or theme. These cards typically deal with big, life-changing events and emotions.

The Minor Arcana consists of 56 cards, divided into four suits: Cups, Swords, Wands, and Pentacles. Each suit represents a different aspect of life, such as emotions, thoughts, actions, and material possessions.

Within each suit, there are 10 numbered cards and four court cards (Page, Knight, Queen, and King). The numbered cards represent different stages or situations, while the court cards represent people or personalities.

Starting a Tarot Reading

Once you feel comfortable with the cards, you can start conducting readings. There are many different types of readings, but a basic three-card reading is a good place to start.

First, shuffle the tarot deck and think about the question or situation you want to explore. Then, draw three cards and lay them out in front of you.

The first card represents the past, the second card represents the present, and the third card represents the future. Look at each card and think about how it relates to the question or situation at hand.

You can also use different spreads and layouts to explore more complex questions and situations. There are many resources available online and in books that can help you learn these different spreads. Tarot Cards are a whole journey and you cna learn all about the Fools journey to wisom and understanding.

If you are practising with someone else then get them to think of a question and let them shuffle or cut how they wish to.
