30 Day Tarot Challenge – Day 06

Are tarot spreads really that important to learn from? I remember when I thought there were finite layouts and card combinations. My young tarot reading mind couldn’t fathom why you’d need more than three possibilities. Since then, things have really changed in the tarot spread department. There is an infinite supply of card layouts to choose from, all of which seem to offer something new to discover about the tarot. But, I can’t help but remember the days when it wasn’t about the layout. I learned tarot using one layout for the longest time, and it never failed to enhance my tarot reading in general.

Day 004: Major Arcana Card Pairings

When I began paging through my Holistic Tarot Beginner’s Study Guide, I was drawn to the Major Arcana section. There’s plenty to digest in this section, and I’m still admittedly working through it, but I did notice the exercises to get better acquainted with the cards. This inspired me to sit down and start pairing my Majors. Continue reading
