My personal journey with Tarot reading started at a young age of 16.
I was gifted a Rider-Waite tarot deck and book that was well-loved and used before me.
At first, it was incredibly challenging. There was so much color and vivid imagery that was in this deck that I rarely tried to use my cards.
Pair that with having to look up meanings all the time and using my cards became very overwhelming fast.
To overcome this, I began to simplify my own method of reading cards. I really wanted to get to the essence of each card.
I started a daily practice of familiarizing myself with the deck and I began to practice word association with them.
After that, I could feel my intuition flow with every card I drew and reading I performed. I no longer fumbled my way through readings, unsure of what they were trying to say.
