During the first early stages its' best to use a Tarot diary to record all your readings to make sure you can reflect upon it later and always build upon your intuitive techniques without the pressure of worrying too much about the card meanings.

If you contact me I will send you a free one page pdf cheat sheet of all the Tarot cards to give you a quick and easy guide when pulling a card.

This article will tell you what you need to know to learn to read Tarot cards in 5 easy steps, but just on a side note, when you turn your cards over, take time to think on it a little while and you will gain more clarification to your personal question.

The time you spend opening yourself up to the cards is when you receive the best interpretations. You can't rush it and in the meantime if you are looking for the best Tarot books I've made a list.


Learn to Read Tarot in 5 Easy Steps - Tarot by Tilly Tarot Card Readings Onilne

Just before I start with the 5 easy steps, if you're looking for easier self reflection after a Tarot reading just remember these 2 methods to ensure you end up with a reading that answers your question more precisely;

1. Make sure you let the reading speak for itself. Easier said than done at first I know but every time I promise you will improve. If you don't open up to the Tarot and relax you'll end up focusing too much on the meanings. This will give you trouble building upon your intuition.

2. So ensure you have a specific question in mind. Nothing too broad. Although, if you are performing a general Tarot reading then of course you will need to apply some of the basic strong card meanings.

Any good Tarot reading will visually open up to you and let you see new imagery in every card. Just as though you are in an art gallery staring into a painting searching for the true meaning/ message from the painter.

Every time you pull a card, you will notice something new and alluring. This means you are doing well and if you already have this within you, well done because it is your natural intuition speaking to you.

It is not essential to know the full meanings, but some really help you to trigger certain memories and help you relate your Tarot reading to your specific or general question.

Its true that anyone can learn to read Tarot cards but not everyone allows energies to flow through them during a reading. To do this you simply need to open up your mind, it's that simple.

Tarot has been used for centuries to help heal mental health and help people see other pathways that before were shadowed to them and this is because the stigma attached to Tarot wasn't as prevalent then as it is now.

Just one Tarot reading helped me years ago get through a difficult time and one that a dear friend of mine performed for me. It changed my life and turned around the darkness that had befallen me. So this article I hope does the same for you and you too gain as much from a reading as I did all those years ago.

Know that reading the Tarot for yourself can be difficult at first, but once you find your true empathic abilities, you will find the cards really do help give you more vision and perspective on life.

Learn to Read Tarot in 5 Easy Steps - Tarot by Tilly Tarot Card Readings Onilne - Bond with the cards

So now without further a do, I will reveal the following 5 sections to learn to read Tarot cards for beginners, intuitively and confidently; (because you haven't got time to read a whole book at the moment!) -


1. Choose your Tarot deck.

2. Bond with the cards.

3. Read the cards everyday.

4. Start with an easy Tarot spread.

5. Diarise your readings.



1. Choose your Tarot Deck.
When choosing a Tarot Deck it like buying a house, it has to call to you so you can go for a beautifully visual Tarot deck if you wish such as the Legendary Ladies Goddess Deck by Ann Shen. Or similarly, like a cat it also has to choose you, not you choosing the cat!

Take a browse through the available Tarot decks in shops or online but just as a suggestion because of its vivid imagery you could start with the most popular deck Rider Waite here. This deck is easy to read and a good starting point, however I truly believe that you need to let the Tarot find You as is it the start of a good solid base for intuitive Tarot readings.

You can also visit a metaphysical shop and handle the sample cards if you want to get up close and personal with them or try a Tarot deck that visually works for you which can be bought online such as the Robin Hood, Revelations Tarot or Llewellyn's Classic Tarot.

To be intuitive you need to bond with the cards which is in my next step on learn how to read Tarot cards.

2. Bond with the Tarot cards.
So there are many ways to bond with the Tarot. Essentially you need to carry them round with you always and if you sleep with them next to your bed or even under your pillow.

You will find the energy from the Tarot will begin to absorb and there will be a connection that you will begin to feel which in turn will set you up on a magical journey helping you decipher the cards naturally and ultimately using your intuition - I hope that makes sense!

Get used to the different cards by familiarising yourself with each individual card face. Just pull a card and take a little while to see what you think it means instead of reading from a guide book. Then read the guidebook to get general help with the meaning.

Above all take in the beautiful pictures on the cards and soak it all up. After a just a few days of Tarot reading you will feel an enormous pull to them and bond that will start you on the road to being an avid reader.

The more you read the Tarot, the more the cards will connect with you.

3. Read the cards everyday.
If you want to know how to learn how to read Tarot cards, it is important to centre yourself and perform readings in a cleansed and 'happy' place. Feel the energy around you and begin to pull a card.

Close your eyes, clear your mind of any other thoughts, relax and turn over the card.

What does it say to you?

To cleanse your space use sage if you feel it is needed and if it still doesn't feel right put bay leaves in with the Tarot deck when you pack it away or use crystals for protection by laying them on top of the cards during a Tarot reading.

You can ask questions such as what pathway lies ahead for me today?

Or what obstacles should I look out for at work?

What love paths are ahead?

Ask what you heart desires to know and the more you read everyday, the more clarity you will get with every reading. Just keep at it and you will learn to read Tarot cards very fast!

4. Start with an easy Tarot spread.
The Tarot has many different spreads but most commonly a one card Tarot reading can be great for a yes or no question to start with. If you have a deep question then the full Celtic Cross is your answer but don't try to do too much to start with.

If you would like to know how to grow from a past experience try the past, present and future spread of 3 cards as this provides easy and straight forward clarification.

Stay focused on the symbols and imagery in the decks as sometimes you will notice things you never noticed before. For example in The Sun Tarot reading card (Rider Waite Tarot deck) the Sun emerges out from the dark clouds as though you have come through a dark time overcoming the worst and now you are starting afresh.

Let the cards speak to you and try out a few different Tarot spreads!

5. Diarise your readings.
For this last section on learn to read Tarot cards I put a personal recommendation across (plus it helps because my memory has had it!). A bit like when you wake up from a dream and then forget it immediately racking your brains for what happened. Very annoying because you know it was really meaningful!

Take a note of your most memorable Tarot reading to help you learn how to read Tarot cards with more speed and diarise all those intuitive messages because you might need these answers in the future.

I use The Gypsy Tarot Journal One Card Draw: Tarot Diary For Recording Daily Readings. This way you can refer back to your Tarot reading as and when you need to and reflect on how the predictions and interpretations turned out.

With a diary you can build a more personal relationship with the Tarot cards and become the reader you always wished to be.

Honestly, you have it in you to do this - reach for the stars!

I hope you have enjoyed this post and found it useful and now you have these 5 easy steps to learn to read Tarot cards for yourself there is no need to use expensive Tarot reading courses because you have the intuition naturally inside you.
