Advice to new Tarot readers:
Can I tell you a secret about how to get better at Tarot readings? The secret is this - you will always pull the right cards. You just have to trust that. And when you start, WRITE IT ALL DOWN. I mean it. Every time you do a reading, write out the full meaning for each card. But ALSO write down your impressions of the card BEFORE you actually read the meaning from the book. What stands out to you? What does it say to you? In a lot of ways, it's about trusting your intuition. If you are doing a reading with a specific spread, you will also want to think about how that card in that particular position might be understood, and, then, to look at how the cards work in relation to each other. I know it sounds complicated, but, honestly, it's like any other skill - it just takes practice to make it better. I recommend doing a reading for yourself every day. Just a simple, one-card reading. Write down your impressions first, the meaning from the book, think about it, reflect on it, and write those reflections too. Then either put it to the side (in a safe place, of course) or put it facing the opposite direction as the other cards, and the next day, put it to the side when you shuffle the deck to pull your next card. When you are done, you will have looked at each card. Then shuffle them all back together and start over, this time leaving all the cards in the deck. Then you will see if there is a theme or notice if the same cards keep showing up over & over. And they will, sometimes, until we work through the situation or learn the lesson we need to learn.
