How to Read Tarot Cards

On this page, you will find very specific and useful resources on how to read tarot cards and that too for free. For more general resources, you may also refer to the Articles page of this website.

I have compiled exhaustive meanings for each card and offered it to you in a very structured manner and with brevity to make it easy for you to learn tarot card meanings and start your personal journey on tarot.

Learning how to read tarot cards is not very difficult. I did it, and so can you! But having scattered resources makes it difficult to get card meanings comprehensively.  

Some of the advanced content is scheduled to be published in due course of time. And so, I request you to be patient with me, as I put together some valuable information on your tarot learning course. 

Also, you might wish to note that I do not do reversed card readings. And for that reason, you will not find reversed card meanings in my articles. Although, I will try to cover them in the advanced learning articles. I believe that most cards in tarot are very positive, and having reversed meanings, reverses the ratio of good to bad cards. I find it unnecessary when upright cards on their own have so much guidance and direction to offer. However, this is each reader's personal choice. So if you wish to do reversed meanings, that will be completely up to your individual choice.  You will find the relevant resources in due course here.

So, are you ready to know how to read tarot cards? Let us start now.

  • What is Tarot?
    Tarot is a system of divination that uses a set of cards to guide a querent in the right direction. The reader uses his / her intuition while reading the cards to derive messages that the universe wishes to deliver to the querent.
  • How does Tarot help?
    Tarot is a spiritual tool to gain clarity on aspects that are currently not visible to you. Tarot lifts the curtain and gives you a perspective that otherwise is not available. Tarot card reading is not necessarily predictive or fortune telling, but simply a potential road ahead and related advice and lessons to be learnt in order to take such road.
  • What are Tarot Cards?
    Tarot cards are a deck of cards with unique symbols and imagery. They are often used for divination, self-reflection, and gaining insights into various aspects of life. Tarot card meanings are subject to wide interpretation based on the intuition of the tarot card reader. Further, multiple tarot spreads may be used by the tarot reader to help in arriving at the right guidance and answers from the tarot cards.
  • How many cards are in a Tarot Deck?
    A standard tarot deck consists of 78 cards. This deck is divided into the Major Arcana (22 cards) and the Minor Arcana (56 cards).
  • What is the Major Arcana?
    The Major Arcana cards in tarot represent significant life events, archetypal figures, and major themes. They often carry a more profound and universal meaning in card readings.
  • What is the Minor Arcana?
    The Minor Arcana cards in tarot are divided into four suits (usually Cups, Pentacles, Swords, and Wands). They represent everyday events, emotions, and challenges in life.
  • How does a Tarot Card Reading work?
    During a tarot reading, a reader shuffles the cards and lays them out in a spread. The cards are then interpreted based on their symbolism and the reader's intuition to provide insights or answers to questions.
  • Can Tarot Cards predict the future?
    Tarot can indicate the future and along with that also suggests steps to be taken, advise to be heeded and lessons to be learnt to manifest that future. Tarot does not indicate random fortune landing on your lap, but needs action to be taken from your end to get to the future indicated by tarot. Here, I wish to break the general belief on predictive readings and highlight that tarot cannot come true unless it is supported by the right actions and movements by you.
  • Is Tarot a form of fortune telling?
    Tarot readings can include elements of fortune-telling, but they are primarily a tool for gaining self-awareness, guidance, and understanding rather than predicting specific events.
  • Who can read Tarot Cards?
    Anyone can learn to read tarot cards with dedication and practice. Tarot readers often develop their own unique interpretations and intuitive abilities over time.
  • Are Tarot Card Readings accurate?
    The accuracy of a tarot card reading can vary. It depends on factors such as the reader's skill, the clarity of the question, and the openness of the individual receiving the reading.
  • What types of questions can I ask in a Tarot Card Reading?
    Tarot card readings can address a wide range of questions, including those related to love, relationships, career, finance, personal growth, and more. The key is to frame questions in a clear and specific manner.
  • Is Tarot associated with any religion or belief system?
    Tarot is not tied to any specific religion or belief system. It is a tool that can be used by people of various backgrounds and beliefs for personal exploration and insight.
  • Can Tarot Card Readings be done remotely or online?
    Yes, tarot readings can be conducted remotely or online. Many tarot readers offer virtual sessions, and there are also online tarot reading platforms and apps available.
  • Do I need to be physically present for a Tarot Reading?
    Tarot reading can be done online and remote as well. Your reader has the ability to tap into his / her spirit guides to gather your energy into the reading. Belief and faith are the key components for gaining the most out of Tarot.
  • How long does a typical Tarot Card Reading Session last?
    The duration of a tarot reading session can vary. It can range from a brief 10-minute reading to more in-depth sessions lasting an hour or longer, depending on the complexity of the questions and the preferences of the individual receiving the reading.
