I've been asked to teach two of my closests friends how to do tarot. So hopefully here I can come up with some sort of "lesson plan". I think I might try and start with Tarot etiquette...the does and don'ts as well as lore and such.

Do's

-Buy a container or cloth to keep your tarot dry
-research the mythology or symbology found in your tarot
-practice word association with your cards
-meditate frequently upon the images
-cleanse after every reading, meditation, etc
-open a dialouge with your cards
-invite your spirit guides to share your tarot
-learn multiple spreads but do not be afraid to experiment based on how your cards feel.

Don't

-leave your tarot out for others to find
-let others put their energies into the tarot
-buy your first serious deck
-bind spirits to your cards
-use your cards to play solitaire (unless you actually have cards that like that. Although I don't know why)
-let others do readings with them
-do readings on yourself


I know that I am leaving a ton out. I just can't bring them to mind (it might be because I am at work). Anything else anyone can think of, please leave a comment.

Hi there,

I just joined you're LJ community and I just wanted to say that I am really impressed with it. However, I have one thing to ask. What do you think is so wrong reading for you're self? I do it quite frequently and have never had issues with this.
