Hi and welcome to Learn Tarot With Me! If you’re struggling to learn – and remember – the tarot card meanings, you’re in the right place!
I’m Angie Green and like you, I’m learning to read tarot cards, one card at a time. This website is both a record of my journey, and a resource for you – with all of the tarot-learning resources we need to learn and understand the tarot so we can understand ourselves and others better. This page contains affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.
If you’re new to tarot, then you might be as overwhelmed as I was when I started. Remember – there’s no right or wrong way to learn or read tarot. There’s only YOUR way.
Here’s my Quick Start plan to help you on your journey…
Get a good tarot deck. I strongly recommend a deck like the Rider-Waite deck from U.S. Games or the Llewellyn’s Classic Tarot deck, which is based off the same traditional images in the Rider-Waite deck. (Both of those are affiliate links – I personally prefer the images on the Llewellyn’s Classic deck, but the U.S. Games Rider-Waite deck is more popular).
You’ll want to have a deck you can write on, color, take notes with, and generally treat like flashcards. (Oh, hey, there’s flashcards in the shop, too)! You’ll destroy this deck in the process of making it yours, so don’t choose something “too beautiful” or too precious.
Once you have your deck, start by doing a daily draw, and recording what you learn. You can use an old notebook or a fancy tarot journal for this.
The idea is to pull a card each day, asking something like, “What do I need to know about today?” (or whatever question feels right). You then interpret the card – by looking at the symbols, using your intuition, or referring to reference material to help you answer that question using the day’s card.
Then, the next day, before you pull a new card, you check in to see how the previous day’s daily draw and your reading of it played out. You can record these “reflections” in your tarot journal as well. Were you correct in how you interpreted this card? Did you miss anything? Did anything happen that will help you remember the ‘story’ of the card when it shows up in your life again?
Using a tarot book or Google is not cheating! That’s how we all learn. So, take it slow, and start working your way through the tarot resources on this site and elsewhere.
And remember – there’s no right or wrong way to use the tarot! The cards are tools that help you access your intuition. You can’t possibly be wrong when you use them.
As you’re learning, it really helps to join an online tarot community to ask for help and share resources. I hang out all the time on Instagram (@learntarotwithme and #learntarot), and there are some great Facebook Groups for tarot, too.
It might take you awhile to find your tarot tribe, but don’t give up! I’m totally not into New Age and woo-woo bullshit, but I’ve been able to find some amazing communities of people who are witchy and awesome. You’ll find your people, too.
