Everything You Need to Know about Reading Tarot Cards

Do you want to enhance your life by tapping into the wisdom of the Universe and your own intuition?

For centuries, Tarot cards have been used as a method of divination by those seeking guidance and direction. The cards have the power to offer hope, reassurance, and support to readers as they meander through the ups and downs of life. In fact, the Tarot have even been known to trigger previously unknown solutions to major dilemmas – whether you consider the message to have come from your own intuition, or more mystical sources.

Contrary to the popular myth, you don’t need psychic powers to read Tarot. All you need is a willingness to learn, time to practice, and the ability to hone and trust your natural intuition. Reading the Tarot is a combination of skills born from following instructions, listening to intuition, and making educated leaps of thought.

As complicated as it may seem at first, it’s actually a relatively simple process. Seasoned Tarot readers would say that it’s a natural habit – something that comes like second nature to them. You too can reach that level of experience and comfort with the Tarot, through practice and patience.

Tarot for Beginners

Tarot for Beginners was created to teach regular people how to work with the mystical Tarot cards and change their life for the better – not to mention starting a fascinating new hobby, and having fun while doing it!

This guide will provide you with everything a beginner needs to know about Tarot, including the most popular card meanings to get you started. Whether you’re using a “traditional” deck like Waite-Smith or the Tarot of Marseille, or a more specialist deck, the definitions included in this guide are relevant, and a solid starting point for a skill that you can carry with you for a lifetime.

Remember, though: nothing is set in stone with Tarot. Reading Tarot involves listening to your intuition; as you become a skilled reader, the card meanings might evolve into something more personal to you. That is the beauty of Tarot, as different readers interpret things in their own unique style. If you’re just starting out, though, this book is the perfect first step on your journey!

We will also dive deeper into the Tarot: you will learn about the history of Tarot, the Major and Minor Arcana, and the positions and meanings of the cards in some of the world’s most popular Tarot spreads.

In other words, Tarot for Beginners will teach you everything you need to start reading Tarot, today!

My thoughts:

It is what it it and it does it well….

Tarot for Beginners is just that, it is a simple ebook designed to give the novice a basic knowledge of Tarot. There is a step-by-step description of the card layouts and the card meanings. Chamberlain teaches in a warm, easy to understand fashion.

Tarot is an art, not a science.

She takes away a lot of the stress and confusing symbolism found in other books on the subject. “Remember to trust your intuition along the way. Don’t approach your reading  the way you’d approach a book report in school.”

By the way, she provides a link to download a pdf of Wiccan spells as a free bonus.

All in all, it is an excellent little ebook on the subject of Tarot. It is an ideal starter book for beginners and I highly recommend it. I give Tarot for Beginners 4 stars out of 5.
