5 Books For Beginners To Learn Tarot

Get Ready to Kickstart Your Tarot Journey

Learning the tarot can be overwhelming. 78 cards in a deck and each deck is different from the next in some way, its no wonder that beginner’s often fail before they begin. But it doesn’t have to too hard. All you need is a little patience, the right deck of cards that interest you, and a few choice books to lean on. After that, it’s just time. And frankly, 78 cards, means in a matter of two months you could learn a lot about your tarot deck if you chose just one card per day to study.

It’s all about having the passion to continue studying. Passionate people, never stop learning. And even after almost two decades of studying, I am still learning new things, and finding amazing books that really bring the tarot to life.

I’ve listed some of my favorite books below. Each one chosen for beginners, easy to understand, and fun to read.
