Tarot is an amazing way to connect with your highest self and spirit guides. I personally use tarot daily to set the intentions for my day and to help me reflect on what I need to work on. If you are interested in getting started in tarot here are some helpful tips!
How to find your first deck?
you do not have to be gifted your first tarot deck. I recommend purchasing your own so it is something you resonate with. My first deck was the shrine of the black Medusa and it was created by a black queer person and I found a guide book that was also gender inclusive which I appreciate. I also use intuition when picking the deck and reading the cards.
How to learn the meanings? This week we will focus on the elements.
I learned the meanings by using a guide book, watching YouTube videos and tuning into my intuition. I also have a personal tarot journal where I write down my personal readings for myself. I also practiced on other people with their consent and let them know what level I was at.
