When you read a spread of cards, the first step is to interpret each one in it’s individual position. However it’s also important to get a view of the bigger picture as well. So look at all the cards in front of you in your reading and take an inventory.

If you are just starting out with Tarot, I would really encourage to start learning with the Rider-Waite-Smith or Crowley-Harris decks. This is because are the most widely used cards and easiest to understand cards.
So how do you interpret new tarot decks? It can be challenging given there are theme decks ranging from angels to baseball! Personally I think it’s best to read new decks intuitively. Just keep in mind that your interpretations should make sense to you personally.
Have you wondered how to put together what the Tarot cards mean in a reading? Sometimes it can be challenging. Each card has a meaning of it’s own. However that meaning can change when that same card is combined with other cards in a reading.
If you would like to learn the Tarot, I would recommend that you first start learning with Rider-Waite-Smith (or Universal Waite) deck. It has very clear and relatively modern imagery. This makes the cards easier to remember and interpret intuitively.
