How can I be a tarot card reader?

How can I be a tarot card reader?
No, I don’t think I have special psychic powers that I know of, but I always wanted to learn to read and use Tarot cards, how much do they cost, how hard is it, can I be a simple mortal being?

I actually got mine for free. I belonged to a spiriutal center where we raised money by having a yard sale. We all worked hard & decided that if anyone wanted anything before the huge sale we would just let them take it. I got a deck but never really learned to use them. I did try once before I got that tdeck & didn’t have cards but did it by using paper. The first time it said a female near me was going to die. I didn’t like it so I did it again & it came up with the same message. It was my mother.

I don’t know the easy way. I would go to HOW To just do a seach. put in how to read tarot cards & they should have the easiest way. Just keep trying & you will learn. Then start contacting people on line asking how much they charge & what they give. keep track of this. Set a price & tell everyone youknow to tell everyone. If you have the money for business cards get them & give theim to everyone you know & put on any boards you can. You might want to run a small add in a paper. remember to write that this is agood gift for someone who doesn’t like to clutter their home. remind them of any kind of celebration coming up. Always be positive cause they will tell their freinds they loved your reading & come back for more.

I read tarot I have been reading them for almost 20 years I started when I was 12. My suggestion for you is to go to the bookstore and look at the decks they have there, if one of them seems to stand out for you then buy that deck. Also maybe pick up a tarot book, most decks come with books. Like a little book in the deck they are just a brief description of what the cards mean. So a larger book about the subject would be best. The price varies be ready to spend between $ 15-$ 20 for a deck and a little more on a book. Its not hard, its just about playing around with the cards and trying them out until you feel confident. Its also helpful to have a friend who doesn’t mind you taking your time and practice on them for readings.
For some people doing tarot drills are helpful, keeping a notebook and writing what you feel about the cards. Especially if you’re trying to memorize the cards. A combination of the book and your personal meanings of the cards will help you be a better reader.
Actually a pretty good book on tarot is the Idiot’s Guide by Arlene (I’m not sure of her last name).
Also check Yahoo! Groups because there are a lot of chat groups for Tarot.

I’ve written articles for beginners in Tarot here that should give you a good start.

I’ve also written an online Tarot deck which you can also use to practice without going to the expense of buying cards.

I’m currently working on extending this so that you can save your tarot spreads with notes to come back to.

    Well you may suprise yourself to find out that indeed you do have intuitive abilities once you start!
    There are tarot card readings and also oracle card readings. I personally find it much easier to read oracle cards and do oracle card readings, in general I am not really that drawn to traditional tarot cards, just the oracle cards. The difference between tarot cards and oracle cards is that tarot cards have a set amount of cards, a major arcana and a minor arcana with various suits. Oracle cards usually have any amount of cards in the deck with names/meanings usually 1 word or a sentence on the card with an image.
