Tarot Reading 101: The Soul Cards Guide for Beginners

by Kristine Fredheim on April 21, 2021

New to tarot? Feeling a little intimidated? We've got your back, angel!

Conducting a successful tarot card reading isn't as hard as you may think. In fact, it's a spiritually uplifting practice that anyone can do. It all comes down to centering yourself and following your intuition to open yourself up to receiving guidance from the Universe. 

Here are some simple tips to get started! You've got this. 

Step 1: Set the mood and calm your mind.

This is the most important step. To start, surround yourself with objects that bliss you out. We love crystals, candles, incense and sage. We also suggest journaling your intentions and doing some breath work before the reading, which helps focus and balance the mind. 

Step 2: Shuffle.

Pretty self-explanatory, right? Just be sure to shuffle your cards really well. Throughout the process, reflect on your intentions and let the good energy flow. 

Step 3: Spread out the cards. 

Find a table or any other surface to spread the cards. You can lay them however you wish, whether it's one row or many. You can even do a past/present/future reading by dividing the spread into 3 rows. Just go with what feels right!

Step 4: Express your intention, ask a question.

This is the stage where magic is about to happen! Close your eyes, set an intention and ask a clear-cut question you seek the answer to. For example: What is happening in my love life? How can I be more successful? How can I advance my career? What do I need to do to make the most out of this situation? 

Step 5: Pull a tarot card.

Hover your hands over the cards. Choose one (or many) that catches your eye or feels right in your hand. This is where you'll want to harness all of that spiritually-charged energy from your pre-reading prep, when you focused on centering your mind.

Step 6: Learn what your cards mean.

There's so much to know about tarot meanings, so we've put together an extensive Soul Cards guide, which you can access here! Once you understand what each cards signifies, reflect on your initial intentions and take the guidance you've just received to heart. Keep journaling to see how everything unfolds.
