A Beginner’s Guide to Tarot Cards

The last few years have seen a resurging interest in all things witchy, tarot cards among them. For some, tarot is a handy party trick, a way to help a friend make connections they might have otherwise resisted. For others, the tarot is sacred, a powerful tool with which to direct one’s life.

Though tarot cards have taken on a mystical meaning in the cultural imagination, they were originally intended as more of a parlor game. The cards have been used since at least the mid-15th century; the earliest recorded decks originated in various parts of Italy. Not until the 18th century was the tarot used for the divinatory (or occult) purpose we know it best for today — Antoine Court and Jean-Baptiste Alliette are credited with popularizing tarot “readings” in Paris in the 1780s.

Between those who think it’s a joke and those who think tarot cards are actual magic lies a vast group who find them insightful and fun, if not necessarily supernatural. Whether it becomes a hobby or a full-time job, tarot reading (for oneself and for others) can be an illuminating way to pass the time.

A Gorgeous Ritual for Tonight’s Magic

  1. Light any of these aromas Carnation, Honeysuckle, Jasmin, Mint, Rose, Strawberry or Vervain in an incense stick, burner, or essential oils diffuser to tune into Taurus’ energies.
  2. Use the following chant to call upon the qualities of the bull:

    “I persistently move in the direction of my goal.
    I am practical, independent, and devoted as a bull”
    .

  3. Light a blue or yellow candle on your altar. These colors represent clarity and harmony. If you don’t have colored candles, use a white one instead.
  4. Take a piece of paper and draw a circle. Outside the circle, write everything that is not a priority for you anymore. Last Quarter Moon brings an opportunity to tie up all loose ends. If you think it’s time to quit an activity that is draining you, write it outside the circle. Visualize yourself closing that chapter. Have you let anyone in your life that you wish would go away? Write their name outside the circle. It’s time to work on cleaning up the clutter. Has someone been bothering you? Write their name outside the circle. Be firm and draw your boundaries with them.
  5. The following gemstones are especially receptive on Fridays: Rose quartz, Aventurine, Emerald, Jade, Pink Tourmaline, Peridot. Place the crystal on your altar next to your candle.
  6. When you have written down everything that you want to let go, light the paper using the candle flame and let it burn safely inside your cauldron, an ashtray, or any fireproof container.
