I would like suggestions and tips and maybe book or website recommendations for reading tarot for the absolute beginner. Anybody? Bueller?

I got a pack of tarot cards in a box of stuff from an estate sale. I admit...I have no clue as to what they mean or what to do with them. I would sort of like to learn to read them, but I don't know how I feel about trusting a deck of cards with telling the future.

In response to a confession. Learning the Tarot is a long process, to be honest. You can get a basic understanding of it with a book called The Tarot Bible by Sarah Bartlett. But if you are really invested in learning, there is a free online course at . It's very in depth. The key to being able to understand the cards is to choose ones that have a lot of detail in the pictures, rather than just ones that say which card it is with a basic picture. The more descriptive the pictures, the easier it will be to interpret the messages. Now technically, you are not supposed to buy them for yourself; they're supposed to be a gift. When I buy a new deck, I "gift" them to someone who "gifts" them right back to me :) Keep a journal with each card and each reading, for future reference. Also, I've never found the Tarot (or pendulum) to be wrong.

I started reading tarot when I was a kid and was taught by my mom and aunt. I also remember getting books from the library. I bet there's YouTube videos on the basics.

In response to a confession. Well, I didn't buy DH did and gave them to me. So that's a good start, I guess. I like that they're mysterious...I don't know about the person who had them before. They seem to be fairly detailed, but I have nothing to compare them to, I guess. I will do a little researching and see what I can find. I am quite curious about them.

If you're going to use the cards, or even if you're not, I suppose, you should cleanse them. It isn't hard to do. Just Google tarot card cleansing. It usually involves salt, incense, a crystal or two, and a little focus. It just helps clear any energy that might be attached to them. Also, on the subject of being gifted cards, I've only been gifted one set, and I own several decks. I actually don't like other people to even touch my cards, let alone own them. I'm a spiritual control freak, I guess, lol.

In response to a confession. Well if they belonged to someone else, what I'd do is smudge them with a sage stick to get rid of any energies attached to them. (I also do this with things I buy from yard sales or antiques stores, as well as library books.) Sleep with them under your pillow for a few days so they can connect to your energy.

So the tarot cards I got in lieu of cash, they were sort of a gift, right? No one else owned them, at least. Besides the retailer. I dunno, I'm so confused.

In response to a confession. And this is what is wrong with today's society. Any thought or belief outside of the norm is condemned. There was a time when things like this just WERE NOT TALKED ABOUT in public, lest you be labeled "crazy." Through the years it's become more accepted and people feel comfortable sharing their experiences and beliefs. If you don't believe in it, fine. My own husband didn't believe in my gifts at first, now he does - because he sees it in action, so to speak. And plenty of us here believe. Plenty of us research and understand that there is a whole unseen world out there, documented throughout the centuries. I'm so thankful to the Admin for creating this board so that we can discuss things that some of us still don't want to talk about with others irl. I'd hate to see people not wanting to post here because of fear of judgement.

In response to a confession. This is the Psychic channel. Of course there were going to be some talk about spiritual things such as tarot cards. What did you expect? Why judge someone for something they choose to practice especially in an area designated for such discussion.
