Learning to read the Tarot is a continuous process of change and growth. Even experienced Tarot readers often find surprising insights in a reading or notice a detail in a Tarot card that had never seemed significant before. Sometimes it may even seem that Tarot cards raise more questions than they answer.

Tarot Tips is a compendium of sage advice and practical Tarot wisdom from two respected teachers with decades of Tarot experience. Divided into six sections, the seventy-eight “tips” cover common questions of interest to beginning and advanced students alike, including choosing and cleansing a new deck, different interpretation systems and card combinations, clarifying the question, Tarot reading ethics, and designing your own custom Tarot spreads.

Seven cards are dealt left to right. The first cards, on the left, represent the past; the middle three the present; and the two on the right, the future.

A writer details how he used the Tarot to inspire his writing and creativity.
I don’t read books in order. In fact, I almost never read a book from front to back. Instead, I start by reading the cover and the dust jacket, if there is one. Then I read the table of contents, thoroughly, followed by a few pages in the front, a ...
The thought of memorizing the significance of 78 different tarot cards is enough to turn away all but the most determined student. Even those of us adept at reading the cards could use a break every now and then. Fortunately, there are many other ...

Anyone who wishes to learn tarot can find a plethora of books on the subject. Anyone wishing to study the Rider Waite Tarot in depth can also find many, many books to choose from. However, for students of the Thoth Tarot, there are fewer options and the options available don’t always seem to have the goal of enlightening the reader. The... read this article
