Going to a psychic in real life or online might be too much for some people to start out with. Especially for those that doesn’t feel comfortable sharing such a deep part of themselves with a stranger. That doesn’t mean that if you feel that way that you can’t get your questions answered by the Tarot. You can still do a self-reading or gain experience with tarot cards with some research. There are tons of different ways for you to do this, none of which are right or wrong. But with some guidance you’ll find the best ways to expend your tarot knowledge are:
Books were created to record memories and pass on knowledge, so of course it makes sense to start there. Get your hands on everything that you can, but beware: it will be confusing. The beautiful thing about the Tarot is that there really isn’t a set way to do it. Yes, there are layouts that you can use and the cards all have their meanings, but everyone seems to interpret them differently. The key is to go through and take it all in, but start to form your own opinions and style through it all.

Everyone has to start somewhere. Get your hands on your own deck and fill it with as much positive energy as possible. Before you even start reading your own deck you’ll want to get the experience of holding it in your hands, feeling it as if it were a person, and building trust with it. These are all very important in strengthening the relationship that you have with the Tarot.
After you feel good and comfortable with the idea of using these cards as a way to guide yourself around some questions, it’s time to get started. It’s best to use a basic pattern at first. You can get a fairly accurate reading with only four cards being drawn. After you shuffle the deck simply lay out one card with three underneath it. This is a simple spread and can tell you about (in order) the Issue at Hand, more about the situation, what you should take caution of, and what you could plausibly do with it. From here you can go on to complicated layouts. Even without knowing exactly what each position means you’ll start to recognize what cards have what meanings and that’s enough to get going.
By watching a psychic work you’re watching them do what they’re best at. Of course, this is when you have a reliable person to go to. Don’t be afraid to ask them questions and study how they have learned to do it. They will most likely have some insight as to what works well and what doesn’t. But keep in mind that you should probably start by getting to know them. That way you aren’t just suddenly showing up all the time and bothering them about how they tell your tarot reading. They may think you’re trying to get in on their way of earning a living rather than studying.
