Many people who are new to Tarot find themselves baffled by all the possible interpretations for the cards. Log on to any Tarot site and you’ll see lists and lists of keywords. Every textbook offer different interpretations depending on the view of the author, and these can even seem to be contradictory at times.
So what do you do?
It is important to learn the standard basic meanings of the cards, but the real magic happens when you start to learn what the cards mean to you personally. This happens over time as you practice with the cards. You will get to know the cards and build up your own intuitive understanding of their meanings just for you.
Remember also that all the interpretations can be correct. The key is to chose the one that’s most appropriate for your particular question. The ability to do that comes with practice. It can take years to really master all the nuance and meaning of each card, so be gentle and patient with yourself and keep your intuition tuned.
Keep on learning and always stay open to new ideas on the cards. The greater the range of meanings you have for the cards, and the more levels on which you understand them, the deeper your readings will be. This is especially the case if your cards have a special personal meaning to you.
