Tarot Cards : Doing Readings

You may be seeing a rise in the numbers of tarot readers in your communities and social circles. More and more of us are getting in touch with intuition and are exercising it openly. Tarot readings have become popular again and and everyone wants to know what they're about.

I purchased my first deck from a black woman owned company with cards photography by and completely featuring WOC. Obviously, it’s one of the dopest decks out, period. I had never had or done a reading prior to that so when I received the cards I immediately began doing research on how to use them and how they would work. Every reading that I have done since, has been spot on. This deck has contributed to my healing, my business, my friends, and my family. Fontaine Foxworth, owner of Melanade Stand, did her thing when she blessed these cards.

Just like most readers, when I witnessed how hard my readings were hitting I decided to start reading other people. I had never charged anyone and had only done it sparingly. Still, I had come to the conclusion that I didn't want to do readings for other people. I’m dropping this on the blog because if you resonate with this then maybe you shouldn’t either.

Let’s start with how to read tarot cards


When you are relaxed and mentally quiet, your quiet intuition is heard loud and clear. Clear your space and get comfortable. Get deep into the present moment.


Shuffle your deck a few times. It’s simple. No number is the right number just shuffle until your heart is content. I normally shuffle around 3-7 times before I begin.


Ask the deck your question silently in your mind or out loud. If you don’t have a question you could ask your cards “what do I need to know right now?” It is not uncommon for people to treat their cards like a part of their spirit team. I am one of those people. I keep my cards in my bag and I try to connect with them no less than once a week. It is advised that dealing with your cards daily is best for bonding with your deck. Keep that in mind. It is important that you treat your spiritual tools with love and care. Just as you would yourself. They're an extension of your energy, not separate from it. Bonding with your deck is an important step. Get in touch with what it is like to listen to your intuition.


* Say the card out loud. Introduce the card to your senses to amplify your intuition.

* First Impression - notice your first thought, feeling or reaction to this card. Remember to go with your gut.

* Evaluate the card to interpret its meaning - what does it symbolize, what is happening on this card, what symbols stand out?

* Translate the message - this step differs from person to person - what do you intuitively understand the cards to be saying?

There are plenty of spreads that can be found on my Pinterest to help you out. Get comfortable with reading by trying new spreads and questions often.

What to know before you start

-Doing readings requires energy.

-Intuition is a gift that we all have. Strengthening it requires work.

-Purification of the mind and body creates space for deeper spiritual connection.

-Tapping into your spirit work heightens intuition.

Last but not least, remember that everyone can read intuitively. If you’re a new reader, trust yourself, you've got this! If you're reading for others, offer them your best - stay grounded. And if you're looking for a reader, choose one who you feel strongly about. Don't mix energies with spiritualists that you don't trust.

Besides myself, my trusted reader is @b3light3d Oracl3s on FB & IG. This Goddess gives the fire readings at a decent price. She is divinely connected.

Good luck and lit 🔥 spreads!
