Enter DIY Tarot Readings – an empowering practice that taps into your innate wisdom and helps unveil hidden truths. Join us on this captivating journey as we explore the ancient art of tarot, uncover its mysterious origins, and learn how to unlock our own intuitive powers. Get ready to trust your gut instincts like never before!

Introduction to Tarot Reading

When you think of tarot readings, you might envision a fortune teller in a mystic's booth at the county fair. However, tarot is much more than that. It is a tool that anyone can use to access their intuition and find answers to their questions.

Tarot readings can be done for yourself or for others. When doing a reading for yourself, it is important to be as specific as possible with your questions. This will help you focus your attention and receive clearer messages from the cards.

If you are new to tarot readings, there are plenty of resources available to help you get started. There are books, online courses, and even YouTube videos that can teach you the basics of tarot reading. Once you have learned the basics, trust your intuition and go with what feels right for you.

What is Intuition and How Does It Help?

While intuition is hard to define, it is our inner knowing or gut sense about something. That quiet voice inside us warns us of danger, guides us to what we need, and helps us make decisions even without all the data.

Some people are naturally more intuitive than others, but we can all learn to trust and listen to it. Regular tarot readings can boost intuition. With experience, you'll see how your intuition appears in tarot cards and can apply this knowledge to improve your life.

Intuition isn't always reasonable. Sometimes it makes no sense. But that doesn't make it invalid or unlistenable. Next time you get a nagging feeling or a strong sense that you need to do something (even if you don't know why), follow your intuition. What occurs may surprise you!

Unraveling Mysteries with DIY Tarot Readings

Have you ever wanted to learn how to read tarot cards but felt intimidated by the prospect? Trusting your intuition is the key to giving yourself successful readings, and there's no need to be afraid! With a little practice, anyone can learn how to provide themselves with accurate and insightful tarot readings.

The first step is understanding the meanings of tarot card suits and positions. The suit of Cups usually represents emotions, while the suit of Swords often signifies thoughts or challenges. The suit of Pentacles generally denotes physical matters or material possessions, and the suit of Wands stands for spiritual matters.

Each position in a tarot reading has a specific meaning:

The Past position represents experiences that have already influenced the issue at hand.
The Present position signifies the current situation and what is happening now.
The Future position shows what is likely to happen if things continue on their current course.
The Bottom line is a helpful final summing up of the entire reading.

Techniques for Building Your Intuition and Applying it in Tarot Readings

There are many techniques you can use to develop your intuition and apply it when giving tarot readings. One way is to meditate on the question you are seeking guidance on. Another is to journal about the issue, or even just spend time thinking about it deeply. You can also try using divination tools like tarot cards or crystals to help you focus your intuition.

Once you have developed a stronger sense of your intuition, you can start applying it to your tarot readings. Make sure to relax and clear your mind before starting, so that you can more easily receive messages from your subconscious mind. As you shuffle the cards, focus on your question or issue, and see if any images or thoughts come to mind. 

Once you have laid out the cards, trust your gut instinct on what they might mean in relation to your question. Don't be afraid to interpret them in whatever way makes the most sense to you – there is no right or wrong way to do it! Just go with what feels most true for you. Remember, the goal is not necessarily to find definitive answers, but rather to gain deeper insight and understanding into whatever situation you're dealing with.


Learning how to trust your intuition is a powerful skill, and having the ability to practice your own DIY tarot readings can give you greater insight into understanding yourself. With patience and discipline, any individual can begin unlocking the mysteries of their inner voice with tarot readings. As always remember that it's important to be discerning when it comes to interpreting the cards -- no one knows you better than you know yourself, so don't let anyone else tell you what your intuitions are trying to communicate.
