How To Read Tarot

Video: Whether or not you believe in the supernatural, it’s fun to get your fortune read — or to read someone else’s. In this video Arthur Lipp-Bonewits, a professional tarot reader who began when he was 12, tells you how to practise reading the deck.

Once you get familiar with it, tarot reading is great for bonding with friends. While I’m an absolute sceptic and atheist, one of my fondest memories is when a close friend used a tarot reading to give relationship advice. Without assigning any supernatural energy to the cards, we found them an excellent communication tool.

So as Arthur recommends, read the manual, memorise the cards, build a narrative, and practise on everyone. If you get good enough at reading for people you know, you can even try on those you don’t.


    I annoyed a believer years ago because I refused to pander to her belief that tarot cards were meaningful.

    The readings were always preceded by lots of questions so she would already have the answers.

    After you have done that you can watch paint dry as well. Because that will give you the same amount of accurate information as tarot cards. My Pokemon cards can also tell you your future.
