Would you like to teach yourself to read the tarot cards? If so, then read on to find out more.

Becoming a Tarot Reader

If you want to be a Tarot reader, then all you need to do is buy some tarot cards.

To give a tarot card reading you need to own a tarot card deck. You can either get someone to buy them for you as a gift or buy them yourself. The Rider Waite tarot card deck is a good choice of cards to start with.

Tarot Card Decks

Once you have your cards, you need to look at each one individually. Hold each card and meditate on it. Concentrate and look at the pictures. Think to yourself what you think they mean. Buy a Rider Waite tarot card book that will give you a guide to each card and its meaning, but the only way to get to know your cards is to hold each one and look at it thoroughly to let it guide you to its meaning. If you do this, then you can easily learn yourself about each card's meaning.

How to Give a Tarot Reading

Also, you need to learn how to give a reading. There are different ways of laying the cards out to give a reading to someone. When I give a reading, I usually use ten cards that individual chooses from the deck after they have shuffled the cards. Here is the lay out that I use.

Card 1

Card 2 Card 3

Card 4 Card 5 Card 6

Card 7 Card 8 Card 9 Card 10

Lay the cards out like above and read each one and what you think it means to the person you are reading for. Use your intuition too. If any images come into your mind then trust them. A force maybe giving you information about the person you are reading for. Not everyone will feel this at first, but if you are in tune with your intuitive side, then it might happen for you immediately. The bottom line of the layout will define the person's future more clearly. Try this on yourself. If you have a friend that you can try it on then ask if you can give them a reading using the layout above.

Good luck!
