Learning Tarot in Lockdown

Day 86 of lockdown… or so I think? I’ve completed an online course, upcycled a piece of furniture, baked a cake, cleared out some of my drawers, dyed my hair pink, done some drawing, followed youtube fitness videos, questioned my life choices, watched ALOT of tv and spent ALOT of time on the internet. So what next?

Well for the last month or so I’ve been learning to read Tarot! I’ve always been a secret hippy at heart and used to love browsing the alternative shops when I was on holiday in the UK as a child. I remember wanting some Tarot cards as a young teen but my mum wouldn’t let me and then I kinda forgot all about it until recently.

After much research online I decided to purchase the traditional Original Rider Waite Tarot cards as they are the easiest for beginners to learn, however I have got my eye on a few other stunning decks so I can see why people get addicted to collecting them!

I also downloaded 3 books on my Amazon Kindle Unlimited trial, they are Tarot for beginners by Meg Hayertz, Tarot for beginners by Lisa Chamberlain and How to read Tarot by Jessica Wiggan. I then noted down key words from each book about each of the cards and tried a few of the spreads out.

I’ve been keeping a diary of meanings and readings I’ve done for myself. One really cool thing that’s happened is when I did a reading a couple of weeks ago something came up telling me that someone from my past may be in touch with me. About 6 days later I received an email from a childhood friend who emigrated to Germany over a decade ago!

I also did a Tarot reading for my cat which basically told me that he thinks I’m in control and a bit too forceful and cuddly. He’s bored and either wants a bit more playtime and adventure… OR he’s really just bored of me and wants me to go out more hahaha!
