What does it take to read tarot cards correctly?

I have a set of the Lenormand tarot cards, and I really want to get more into them. But what does it take to read them correctly? Or do they lead themselves? Or is the Lenormand set just for shits and giggles? I’m completely new to this, so if you’ve got any pointers or corrections.. anything, tell me 🙂


  1. Find a method that works for you (there are several that can be found simply by googling). Then work with that method and assess whether you think the Tarot is really helping you.
    Personally, I see the Tarot as simply a “springboard” of ideas. I don’t believe they tell the future, but the archetypes they convey can suggest a good way of looking at the situation.

  2. You really want to play with Fire. The Devil plays for keeps and you will be taking the Biggest Risk in your Life.. Hell is hot and it is for Ever. God is the only Source for future knowledge the Devil only has a bunch of guesses and lies.. So believe another lie Eve, and Damn your soul for ever..

  3. The advice I’m regularly giving and wishing I’d gotten myself when I started is – dont buy a book and try to learn the meanings of each of the 78 cards. It’s not an academic undertaking. You’ll get fed up thumbing the books every time you do a spread.
    Tarot is about intuition and interpreting the images you see in front of you as a story that you are being told. It’s just like dream interpretation.
    The only thing you need to learn is the background to the elements and the numerology.
    There are 4 elements and numbers from 1 to 9. That’s 13 things you need to know and understand.
    Once you have this the 56 minor arcana cards become easy to follow.
    The Major Arcana is heavy on visual symbology which makes it easier to interpret, it also use numerology and elements too.
    I’m in the process of writing articles on this subject. I’ve published my article on the elements and should be finished the numerology of Tarot in the next day or so along with an overview explanation.
