How To Read Tarot Cards Accurately

Reading Tarot cards as accurately as possible is something that all Tarot readers should strive for. Not only will you be providing a better service to your clients, but you’ll strengthen your abilities the harder you try to give accurate readings. Although you can rely on your intuition to guide you to conduct Tarot readings, there are some surefire ways to help any Tarot reader, regardless of experience, improve the accuracy of their readings.

Select a Tarot Deck That Is Right for You

The most important step you need to take before you even begin reading Tarot cards is to search for a deck that is right for you. As with any type of cartomancy, you want to select cards that resonate with you on a spiritual level. If the cards don’t spark something in you, then you won’t be able to properly connect with them. When you can’t connect with your cards, you can’t give a proper reading. Look for a deck whose images and messages resonate with you. Go for decks whose size and purpose suit your needs or style of Tarot.

Practice and Study

While most Tarot readers rely on their intuition to conduct their readings, it’s important to at least take a look at the guidebook that comes with your cards. The guidebook will help you at understand the basic meanings of the cards better. If you might be feeling stuck on the meaning of a card, the guidebook can help you interpret the card in a way you didn’t think of.

Just like with any skill, it’s important to practice. Practice makes you better at whatever it is you’re doing, including Tarot reading. One way to practice your Tarot reading skills is to read for a variety of different clients. The more you read for different people, the stronger your skills will be. You’ll learn how to answer different questions and situations better as you read for more people.

Stay open to conducting different types of readings. Although you may specialize in love readings, it’s good to remember to read Tarot for other types of scenarios. This goes along with reading for different types of clients. Try your best to look for variety in your readings.

When you first start out reading Tarot, it’s a good idea to try to perfect a couple of different spreads. Once you get used to the rhythm of conducting these spreads, that you’ll have no trouble at all accurately reading the cards that appear.


Before you start any reading, it’s crucial that you take the time to clear your mind and relax. You’ll be able to hear your own intuition better when all the other noise from life is quieted. Let go of any tension you might be feeling. Keep your mind and body open to what the universe is trying to tell you.

Ask the Correct Questions

This might seem obvious, but it’s important to frame your client’s question correctly in your mind. If the reader or the client is confused about what’s being asked, then the answers will turn up confused too. Make sure to talk the question over with your client so that you’re both on the same page over what they’re trying to ask. Hold the question clearly in your mind as you conduct your reading so that you get as accurate of an answer as possible.

Decide Your Tarot Reading Style

Ever Tarot reader is different, so of course their reading style will be different too. Before you begin reading, it’s important to decide how you’re going to conduct your Tarot readings. For example, decide whether or not you’re going to use reversals. It’s up to you if you want to read the cards the same no matter how they turn up or if you’re going to change the interpretation if they come up reversed.

Another thing to consider is if you want to assign your querent a card to represent them. This might help in the story that you’re trying to weave about your client.
Decide what layout you’d like to use for the reading. You can stick with a couple of different layouts that you have mastered or you can choose a layout that is appropriate for the specific reading you are giving.

Listen To Client Feedback

Listening to what your clients have to say after their reading is probably the best way for you to improve your accuracy as a Tarot reader. Both positive and negative feedback will help you see what things work better for you and where you need to improve. Don’t take the feedback personally and look at it as a way to do better the next time.

Giving accurate Tarot readings should be one of your top priorities as a Tarot card reader. Don’t despair if it feels like you’re having trouble properly reading Tarot at first. Remember that practice makes you better and that being open to feedback from your clients and the universe will strengthen your intuition.
