When students approach me for personal tarot mentoring, they tell me about how hard they find it to remember all the card meanings.
They have been trying to develop their tarot skills and knowledge for ages with only little progress, and now they are wondering, if there is an easier way to learn card meanings than memorising keywords from books.
At this stage I advise them to put their tarot books back on a shelf and start from scratch.
During our first session I show them how to connect with the tarot on an intuitive level by exploring the details of each image.
We are looking at symbolism (less complicated than it sounds), the whole scene, feelings and emotions generated, and last but not least the student’s own life experiences reflected in the cards.
During the session I encourage the student to open their mind and tap into their unconscious and imagination.
It’s always fantastic to see, when a student suddenly ‘gets it’, like a switch being turned on in the brain.
Yes, it can be hard at first to engage the creative side of our brain as we are conditioned to focus on rational thinking.
But once you have flicked that switch, there is no holding you back from accelerating your tarot skills.
Watch the following video, in which I show you how to read the tarot intuitively.
Once you apply that technique, you will hopefully notice an improvement of your tarot skills by developing a deep understanding of each image and therefore will no longer need to refer to a book:
