Learning Tarot is no mean feat. You can do it either way – Learn from a Teacher or Learn by Yourself.
Whichever way, you choose, the learning process is something to be cherished and remembered, since those are your first steps into the world of the cards.
There are pros and cons to both types of learning, no doubt.
When you learn from a teacher, be sure to know stuff about what the teacher is planning to include within the course, such as the time frame for the course/workshop, and more importantly how long he/she has been reading cards professionally. Discuss with your teacher the reasons why you want to learn Tarot: more importantly, a good teacher will ask you the reason herself. And ideally, a good teacher will encourage you to seek your own meanings within the cards, rather than going about with a “this card means…” rote learning technique.
If you are planning to learn on your own, then make sure that you have a schedule in place and that you stick to that schedule. It is very easy to drop off the track when there is no one to regulate the learning process. Also, make sure you have all your tools and resources ready for when you are scheduling to begin – such as your reference book, the deck (of course!) and your journal for making notes.
As such learning how to read Tarot cards is like beginning a journey by itself, and there is no feeling as wonderful!
