So if you're new to Tarot or you just want to deepen your understanding of the cards and practice, I got you covered. There are so many great free and paid resources on the market to learn Tarot sometimes it can make it tough to chose. Below are the books that I have read and personally recommend. Feel free to comment below with your favorite books for learning Tarot!
First up is 78 Degrees of Wisdom by Rachel Pollock. Get your copy here. There are two versions. The one with the yellow cover is the newest edition of this book. This book is incredibly comprehensive. You will get a full well rounded view of the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana. The author is a wealth of knowledge and puts it all out in this book. It is not a quick and fast read, it is one that you will need to take in small chunks but highly worth having in your stash. You will find yourself keep going back to this as a reference book every time you have a new question.
The next one I recommend is Tarot No Questions Asked Mastering the Art of Intuitive Reading by Theresa Reed here . This book is a very quick and easy read. Theresa uses plain straightforward language and manner of speaking which helps things stick, so to speak. She gives excellent modern day examples of the Tarot Card meanings and lots of really useful reading tips throughout the book. This one will get you excited to get started with Tarot.
Finally, I recommend The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot-Ever!! by Dusty White here
This book is humorous and very informative. The thing that this book does really well is it TEACHES you how to actually do a reading. That is the primary focus of this book. Most books focus on card meanings and the history of the Tarot. This one really teaches you the ins and outs of how to interpret the cards intuitively in a reading while taking into consideration the traditional meanings of the cards.
I'd love to hear what you think about these books if you have read them and let me know in the comments which ones you suggest for people starting their Tarot journey!
