As part of my participation in Ethony’s 31 Days of Tarot, I’m sharing the best advice I’ve received about working with Tarot.
The best Tarot advice I’ve received is…
Get going. Start the journey.
That’s to say, learn the Tarot. Illuminate the Tarot using intuition combined with the oh-so-practical practice of using the cards.
You might think, “Well, that’s pretty obvious,” and I might agree with you.
Here’s the thing about that: I was scared off of Tarot by using it without being familiar with it. Instead of taking a true-beyond-belief reading and using it as inspiration to learn more, I ran in the opposite direction.

Want to have some unsolicited advice about Tarot? Here it is:

Make note of what comes up for you. Make note of what colors stand out. Make note of what imagery stands out. Make note of any messages you may receive.
Practice Tarot. It’s good advice.
