Are these two things holding you back as a tarot reader?

learning tarot tarot tips May 19, 2021

I remember how disappointed I was when I got my first tarot deck.

I went in with big expectations. I’d always thought of myself an intuitive, perceptive person. I felt spiritual.

And I wanted that connection to something greater – be it the universe, deity, or my higher self.

I was so excited, and a little bit nervous, when I shuffled my cards and started turning them over. I wondered: What would I learn? What would I see in my reading?

I went from excited to crushed pretty quickly. As soon as my cards were laid out, I felt…nothing. Well, that’s not entirely true: I didn’t get any visions or insights because I had no idea what to make of the cards in front of me.

But I did feel a mix of disappointment, confusion, and insecurity. That insecurity was directed towards myself: What if I’m not the spiritually connected, intuitive person I thought I was?

What if I’m just not cut out for tarot?

I know that sounds dramatic, and it is. I had gone into tarot with such high expectations, and those cards brought me back down to earth – fast.  

I didn’t know it at the time, but I was caught up in not one but two of the biggest misconceptions out there about tarot:

  1. That you can just “feel” your way through a reading and let your intuition guide you.
  2. That all it takes to read tarot is to memorize 78 card meanings.

I know I’m not alone in this. Over the years, I’ve consistently noticed that these two ideas mislead a lot of aspiring tarot readers along a road of frustration, unsatisfying readings, stale interpretations, and under-developed confidence that can linger long after you’ve outgrown the beginner stages of tarot.

If you’ve been wondering:

  • How do I break out of tired tarot meanings and learn how see the cards in new ways?
  • How can I make bolder interpretations, and push my predictive skills?
  • And how can I do better readings for other people – and feel in control when they ask me questions I’m scared to answer?

Then I’m excited to say that this is your official invitation to get beyond the basics with my signature program, Taking Tarot to the Next Level.

Ready to dive in? I hope so, because I’d love to see you in the course!

Until next time,
