Your Tarot Manual: Reading for Yourself

From the Universal Waite Tarot DeckOne common myth among new readers is that you should not read for yourself. This is simply false! There are numerous reasons that this myth is false:

  • Gaining Direct Insight About Yourself: Who better to read for you, than the person who knows you best? You! The tarot is a tool for you, not just for others.
  • Learning Tarot Applications In Life Situations: You will need to become very familiar with the cards, their meanings, and why they appear in layouts at different times in your life. In order to become proficient at this, you will have to do a significant number of readings and gain follow-up feedback on how the cards drawn reflected life. There is no better person to use as a guinea pig in this area than yourself.
  • Learning Objectivity: Although there are times that you may like an outside objective opinion about a reading for yourself, you should be training yourself to be an objective reader. Avoid letting your personal views get overly involved in a reading as they will significantly hinder the accuracy. When consulting a second opinion on readings for yourself, it is sometimes helpful to try another mode of divination first such as checking the runes or the I Ching. In later lessons, you will learn about how to avoid addicted clients and how to avoid becoming one yourself.
