Learning tarot can be an inspiring experience, once we realize the tarot is a refined tool of prediction that could change our lives if we let it! Some of us are naturally drawn to the cards from an early age. Strange situations occur, for example someone gifts us a pack, or a reader astounds us with her accuracy, and we yearn to learn to see into the future just as she does!
Learning tarot is a spiritual journey, and even though we aspire to understanding the cards we need to realize that it is our perception that gives them their power. If we prefer learning tarot on our own we could start by creating a Tarot Diary, and write down our daily impressions and insights on the cards. We could also meditate on each major arcane card, not only to understand the images but to allow our unconscious mind to internalize their significance. When we meditate on the cards we take in their magical power and familiarize ourselves with our own clairvoyant gifts and internal insights.
Various Tarot Decks
There are so many tarot cards to choose from, some of the images are artistic and beautiful to look at, but our chosen pack needs to speak to us personally, and pretty tarot cards do not necessarily connect to our unique magic. Our personal pack might be simple, or garish, beautiful or unusual; inevitably, we choose the pack that “speaks” to our hearts. But we do need time to allow “the Fates” to organize one of the most intimate meetings a true reader will encounter, an appointment with her internal magic, and “seeing” gifts!
To enter into the tarot creative visualization is useful. We could step in to each individual card and becomes friends with its resident. We could chat to the Fool about their perceptions on life. We could ask the Magician to gift us an instrument of knowledge, or the High Priestess to reveal a metaphysical secret. As we connect to the personal message of each card, we also come to terms with the negative side of our own personalities and face what we are seeking to avoid within. Our “friendly” tarot pack then starts to “see” deeply into our psyches, and the psyches of others. We soon realize that the tarot is not only an occult tool to read the future, but a magical gift that can change that future. For example if you read the cards for someone, and the Tower is an outcome, that is a warning. By changing their thinking modes and taking responsibility for the negative aspects of their life, disaster can be stopped in its tracks!
Metaphysical tools tell us that the future is not “written in stone”. The usefulness of tarot and astrology is their capacity to remind us of who we truly are, in the good and the bad. If we are ready to accept their warnings, their wise counsel and their gifts, we will see our lives change for the better.
Learning tarot is also fun in a group setting. If you can find friends who want to share the experience all the better. You can swap notes, and become more practiced at reading tarot for each other. Asking a friend who is a reader if she wants to start up a class might work. But there are colleges that undertake interesting courses. The College of Psychic Studies in London is a prestigious school, with excellent tarot instruction. In the final analysis, the most important decision is our choice of cards, once that is accomplished we are on our way to breakthrough! As we love our cards, the cards begin to spread truth and healing not only within our lives, but the lives of others!
