Everyone Has Their Own Style Of Learning . . . 

Some by seeing, some by hearing and some who learn best by both seeing and hearing . . . There are also those who learn by doing — needing the hands-on approach . . . Some fall in different combinations and new ones as well. My point is to use the method that works best for you. If you really, truly want to learn to read Tarot cards, you can start here and develop the method that resonates with you. We’re always looking for shortcuts — an easier way of doing things . . . but it has to make sense to us, otherwise it doesn’t work.

I like Vincent Pitisci — his books and his videos . . . He’s developed Key Words that fit quite well into the Tarot structure. He also has 20 or so more key words to broaden and deepen the meaning of each and every Tarot card. He also suggests that we develop key words of our own — and, of course, we can use his and any combination that resonates with us . . . and is true to the card meaning.

The charts Vincent uses in his videos are also in his books. I’ve included three of his publications all following the Rider-Waite-Smith format. He also has a new one for the Marseilles Tarot Deck. 

For Me, The Key Word Approach Is The Starting Point

It’s where I begin. I could use the traditional Rider-Waite Tarot Deck for this study as is used in the books and the videos or I can go to a Tarot Deck of my choice . . . One that resonates better with me and will facilitate my learning. This basically means I want to learn and I want to use my personal favorite deck. 

I know this is going to take some time to truly learn the meanings of all 78 Tarot Cards. I had once thought of learning one a day for 78 days or perhaps I could learn 5 a day for 26 days or so, depending upon how many I can learn and remember . . . So, basically, it’s important to go at your own pace, but practice daily and perhaps even several times a day to get the concepts down. And even do more research to the meanings from other videos and books — even the guidebook that came with your particular favorite Tarot deck. 

You’re not only learning the Tarot basics of meanings, but you’re also building confidence in yourself that you can indeed learn to read Tarot cards — not just your favorite deck, but all Tarot decks you have in your collection or plan to purchase in the future.

I absolutely love my Everyday Witch Tarot Deck . . . Maybe I’ll use one of my newer purchases — White Numen Sacred Animal Tarot for the next 30 days or so . . . I may need to take a fresh look at Tarot and my learning process.

I’ll keep you updated. Thanks for stopping by!
