World Tarot Day

World-Tarot-Day-with-motto

 

In celebration of World Tarot Day (May 25), I wanted to share some information that budding tarot readers may find useful. I have been offering public tarot readings for the past 6 years, and have been using the tarot for inner, spiritual growth and spellwork for many more. There are numerous resources available for those who wish to learn tarot, deepen their practice, or connect with other readers worldwide. Below are some links that I have found particularly useful.

Tarot Professionals is the best place to learn, develop and receive ongoing support for your Tarot as an absolute beginner or experienced professional with other students & professionals around the world. This is a full-time professional Tarot organization dedicated to supporting your Tarot studies and career. Membership gives you a range of innovative and modern Tarot courses, the worlds leading Tarot magazine (TarosophistInternational), video lessons and Tarot projects for you to take your Tarot to new levels. As a professional you gain valuable legal, business & marketing support. They also have a Facebook group. (Please note that membership in this group is by request only).

Aeclectic Tarot is a very useful website where you can browse through thousands of different tarot decks before you buy. Photos of cards from each deck are presented, as well as card meanings. Also offered are accessories such as tarot bags, boxes and jewelry.

Tarosophy Tarot Conventions take place around the world each year. This website provides info about upcoming tarot conventions in your area.

That’s Totally Tarot is a great tarot blog from professional reader Angelo Nasios. He has wonderful insights on tarot reading, YouTube instructional videos, and was awarded Tarosophist of The Year. He is very knowledgeable and explains things in a no-nonsense, easy to understand way.

The Sacred Circle Tarot is the deck that I use. As soon I picked up this deck I knew it was for me. There are many things I like about this one: the imagery of Celtic landscapes and symbolism, keywords at the top of each card, elemental associations (Fire, Air, Water, Earth), and I love how the realistic-looking figures on the cards appear as though they may begin moving and speaking at any moment! This deck comes with a companion book that explains the meaning of each card, along with some helpful spreads, including one of my favorites, the Planetary Spread.

There are two other books that I have found personally helpful in my tarot practice. They are “Tarot For The Green Witch” by Ann Moura, and “A Magical Course in Tarot” by Michele Morgan.

 Happy Tarot!
