Be creative in the ways you practice tarot. Think of the most notorious characters you’ve watched in movies, series and read about in books. Ask the tarot to describe them for you in the cards. Look at the patterns the cards are making using the Celtic cross spread and notice how the cards are describing the different characters, the heroes, and the villains. Practicing like this makes a real difference in your own readings, whether you are reading for yourself or others.
My favorite way of practicing tarot is to read the other cards. Pick a card, but don’t look at it. Aks the other cards to describe the card. It is amazing how much you will learn about the card you picked this way.
