How to Become a Professional Tarot Reader

For first-time tarot card users, purchasing your first tarot deck can be quite a confusing and weird one.

If you want to become a professional tarot card reader, below are a number of easy-to-follow steps to consider.

What Are The Primary Tarot Decks Used Today?

According to divination experts, there are two tarot card decks that are considered the ”primary” decks used today.  These are the Rider-Waite deck and the Thoth Tarot. Each deck comes with its own mysterious backgrounds, although the Rider-Waite deck is popularly used for conventional tarot seminars and classes. The Rider-Waite deck is also popularly used as the main reference material in Internet Tarot sites, and in psychic forums and message boards.  The Rider-Waite is also highly recommended for first-time users.Five Tarot Card Spread

Upon Buying A Tarot Deck, Determine Its Purpose 

Before buying your first-ever tarot card deck, think about what role or purpose will it play in your personal journey to awareness and self-discovery. The tarot deck can actually be used for healthy self-exploration, as well as for personal growth. The tarot deck can also be used for meditation and self-acknowledgement. It can also be utilized for helping the individual see the choices available to him or her. It can also be a tool for helping the person analyze the past and present, clarify goals or objectives, predict the future and access the hidden depths of the subconscious.

How To Be An Expert Tarot Reader

In effectively learning the mysterious and ancient art of tarot card reading, the individual first needs to do a couple of things. He or she can read books, and then take a formal course, and even get a certification from reputable tarot organizations and groups.

How To Be  A Certified Tarot Reader

Most divination experts strongly suggest that tarot readers get certified.
