Tarot cards are a deck of 78 individually illustrated cards, divided into two sections (the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana). Each card has an illustration on it that represents a specific concept, person, or situation. Other cards have numbers instead of illustrations that indicate their value in divination. The cards are laid out by the tarot reader in answer to a question posed by someone seeking advice or guidance through life.
Placed together, the layout of the cards tells a story that can be interpreted by the reader to find answers within it. Some reasons why people may seek advice from tarot readings are personal struggles with health, relationships, work or financial problems. The reader can also offer advice on emotional issues which need to be addressed by the client in order for them to overcome their difficulties over time.
How to become a tarot reader
The first steps on how you can become a tarot reader are very simple, especially if you have previous experience with tarot cards and readings. It is helpful to practice reading for yourself and/or family members before you take your services public, as this will give you valuable experience of what questions might come up and help you develop your techniques further.
It is also wise to join local discussion groups and meet other readers and psychics through online forums such as Facebook Groups to share ideas and develop your skills. You can also learn a lot from other Tarot readers, as everyone will have their own unique style and different strengths within the readings.
Whilst you might choose to learn tarot reading skills by yourself, this does not mean that you cannot still seek the help and advice of other people in order to learn and develop your skills further. This can also be done by having personal one-to-one sessions with what is known as a “Tarot Coach” who will guide you through different techniques and methods which can lead to more accurate readings.
If possible, it is always best to try out as many different coaches as you can (without spending too much money!) until you find one who feels like they really understand your needs and help make the most effective use of the time that you have to spend together.
What are the benefits of tarot reading
Free tarot reading is very rewarding as you get to help people with issues that really matter to them on a deep level. As time goes on, you may find yourself making money for your services or even becoming an established business if you decide to go down this route.
For those who simply enjoy doing it as a hobby, there is no pressure, and they will still benefit from practicing their readings and improving on their techniques over time which always brings greater levels of insight and accuracy in the future readings.
Who can be a tarot reader, and how much does the best tarot reading online cost?
Anyone can become an accurate tarot reader, regardless of gender, age or experience in the field. If you are reading for yourself, then readings tend to be more accurate as you do not have any outside influence on the decision-making process like friends or family members who may advise you to avoid certain choices which they might think are wrong for your wellbeing.
Choosing to read professionally means that you will need to set yourself up with business cards, leaflets or website information so that people know where to find you whenever they want a reading done by someone they know. Like anything else in life, there is no guarantee of success, but if you put enough hard work into it, then it is possible to make a good income from your readings if you are accurate and honest enough with them.
The best way to learn tarot card reading for beginners
Some of the most popular ways of learning include online tutorials (YouTube videos), which can give anyone all the information they need on reading Tarot cards effectively. Books on Tarot card readings are also very helpful but are typically less versatile than tutorials due to being unable to answer any questions that might come up during a live reading situation in video format.
How much are tarot coaching sessions for beginners
Whilst it is possible to learn everything about Tarot card readings online, it can be difficult to achieve the same degree of accuracy in your readings when you are alone, so it is worth considering hiring a coach who will guide you through your own learning process step-by-step.
It may also help improve the quality of your readings if you attend classes or group reading sessions with other readers to share ideas and build confidence in getting information across clearly while using the cards as a medium for divining accurate predictions.
For one-to-one sessions with a Tarot coach, these tend to be slightly higher than group sessions and may cost you around $50 per session (in person) if you live in the same town as them, which is generally less than what it would cost for hiring a personal trainer who can help improve skills. Overall, these coaching sessions are typically cheaper than taking a course at college or university, but they will teach you more about using the cards effectively in your readings.
Overall, these coaching sessions are typically cheaper than taking a course at college or university, but they will teach you more about using the cards effectively in your readings. There are bound to be some skeptics out there who do not believe that the Tarot can predict anything at all, despite being one of the most popular divination tools in history amongst both witches and non-witches alike.
Because of this, it is expected that you may receive a lot of criticisms from complete strangers when giving Tarot card readings for money for the first time until they realize how often those predictions turn out to come true! The best way to deal with criticism is by learning as much as possible about this subject matter through both online tutorials and physical books that you can read at your own pace.
