If you want to become a confident tarot reader, there are a few tricks you should know! With this post I am going to share with you some tips on how to become the best, most confident tarot reader, learning how to connect with the cards and unlocking your intuition for a powerful experience!
The role of a confident tarot reader is quite precise. To summarize: she answers questions asked by a person who has doubts about a position, a choice to make or about his future in general. Basically, a confident tarot reader can be a guide but with an open intuition as she is a vessel for the cards to share their messages to the consultant. Let’s learn about the main foundations of a confident tarot reader.
Having a strong bond with her deck
A confident tarot reader has a special bond with her Tarot deck. She knows her cards to the point of almost binding with them and handles them as if they were gold.
This happens because there are many different Tarot decks and each one has completely personal interpretations.
In short, you cannot become a confident tarot reader with a random card deck or if you’re using it without awareness and dedication!
Instead, you have to get a deck of cards and observe it, touch it, get in touch with your personal soul and abandon any slightest source of skepticism.
You can’t dream of becoming a confident tarot reader if you don’t believe in yourself first and then in your cards.

The reading of the soul
Another fundamental point during a Tarot reading concerns the ability to read and therefore know the soul of those who are asking for a consultation.
This ability, which in principle must be innate and in itself represents this divinatory art in an excellent way, must be cultivated and expanded over time, in the good name of experience.
If you don’t have good reading skills, a medium-high level of empathy, and a good understanding of other’s gestures and feelings, then it is unlikely that you will be a confident tarot reader.
While it is true that basic skills are needed to be able to proceed with the art of tarot reading, it is also true that experience with respect to reading will be decisive for expanding, recognizing and fully developing one’s potential.
In fact, one cannot become a confident tarot reader in a short period of time because your skills will grow and flourish over time. You will learn over many sessions that these base skills that you start with become stronger and more powerful with practice.
In order to become a confident tarot reader, you need some qualities that you can build upon, such as:
- the receptive capacity of those who ask for the consultation,
- knowledge of the human soul with all its disturbances and responsibilities,
- the patience deriving from experience.
But among the first characteristics to be developed there is the confidence and therefore the knowledge of one’s own personal Tarot deck, whose interpretation changes according to the type of deck.
The deep bond with the human soul has no value, in fortune-telling, if you do not fully believe in the value and truthfulness of your cards. For this to happen, you need to practice and study this world in depth.
Time, which always plays in favor of a good and talented tarot reader, will then reveal all those who have undertaken the art of divination with the right spirit, because their interpretations will be appreciated and sought after by others.
The art of consulting and interpreting tarot cards is certainly not the result of any innate divination, boasted or presumed.
In order to be correct in reading the cards you need a basic knowledge of the cards indicated, divided into Minor Arcana, with classic suits, and Major Arcana (figurative cards to be clear). Having said that, the interpretative capacity is undoubtedly influenced by the personal receptivity of the person in front of you.
What are the steps to take to become a serious and professional confident tarot reader?
After having explained that, in order to be able to interpret situations through Tarot reading, one must first know the instrument, then the cards, and their primary meanings; now let’s explain what the qualities are, which are in part innate, but in part they can be developed with experience, to arrive at the perfect consultation.
The receptivity of those in front of you is fundamental: a person who is able to come into almost empathic contact with the person who is requesting the consultation is someone who is on the right path towards correct fortune-telling.
This happens because depending on how the Arcana are presented, for example on the straight or the other side, will give them different meanings for each field of action.
Equally important for a good personalization of the service, is to listen to those who have contacted us and who need a specific reading.
It is good to remember that when dealing with people who want to understand something more about their present and their future, they describe situations and events that have occurred to them or around them because they really need to perceive human understanding from other parties.
A confident tarot reader uses the details given to her so that the interpretation of the cards is the result of a real empathy with the person facing her.
Training is always good
If the qualities listed above are present in you and this world intrigues you enough, then maybe you can start taking baby steps.
Your first aim should not be pulling off a large, life-changing interpretation on your first reading. Take your time.
To be able to understand if you are good for this kind of situation, you could start reading the cards for relatives and friends in a casual way, to see for yourself if, after some time, your interpretations come true.
Experience, then, is the key to all activities: after practicing a little and getting to know the human soul a little more, the experience developed will help you in all fields of communication. Most people need specific answers; consequently, empathy and listening skills are fundamental in this explicit field. Keep that in mind right from the start of your practice.
