Getting started with cartomancy/Tarot



Hi, i’m kinda new on this and, i’m very interested in tarot, do you have anything to say, any useful links, things to know and such things to help me ? That would be really sweet, thanks a lot.~



There are so many different readers who do so many different spreads and have so many different ways of reading the cards in different (‘real life’) combinations…

Plus if you want to preview decks before buying check out the channel by ‘Dark Star Tarot’ as she has a large collection of decks that she does complete flip-throughs of so you can see them all before committing to purchase.



Bought he deck that seemed to “call” me, i saw a card and knew i was gonna take it. It’s the dark exact tarot (if i remember well?). And thanks for your answer, but, if there’s so much ways to do it, what’s the right one ? :slight_smile:


Connect with your deck. Go through them and meditate on each of them. EA has a video on just that floating around somewhere…


I find Crowleys Tarot Toth very good


Try this to get to know your cards:


I love this feeling, I recently ordered my new Tarot deck which called me from the first time I saw it back in July!


Tarot is an interesting subject and there are many variables. There are hundreds of types of tarot decks to choose from, Aleister Crowley created several. A traditional deck has 22 Major Arcana (or trumps). There are 56 Minor Arcana cards, sixteen Court or Personality cards; the Kings, Queens, Princes and Pages. There are four elements or suits: Fire, Earth, Air and Water, with 10 cards in each.

You can choose a number of systems to analyse the cards and there meanings. Here is a great link that gives many details of how to interrupt the tarot and has some nice color image’s of the 22 cards and a description of each card and there meaning.


What do Taro cards represent? What do the cards symbolise?

The information I’m about to give took me far too many wasted years to learn.

A Taro card symbolises an energy. In patterns they symbolise energies. Major Arcana represents powerful energies (to put it mildly).

Analyse the Major Arcana: I to VII; then VIII to XIV until finally XV to XXI. Then study The Fool (always capitalised). Keep looking until you can close your eyes and see the cards – in every detail. (If you actually do this, things will happen, so you let me know.)

Ditto Minor Arcana. The closer to card X the more physical the energy represented by that card.

Learn (O.N.A.) and design your own sevenfold and inverted pentagram spreads. And keep notes in you Magickal Journal, because if you’re not keeping notes you’re having yourself on.
