How to connect with your tarot cards

Before you start to ask your tarot deck question, follow these simple steps to familiarise yourself with the cards meanings. Always show appreciation and thank your tarot cards for the service they provide to you. Always get a feeling for your deck, what energy and vibration is it admitting.

Firstly familiarise yourself with the characters within the deck, this could be a recurring person, flower or scenery – be open to every image you see. Familiarize yourself with how this image makes you feel.

The next step is to look at the suits within your tarot deck and see if there is a similar tone of colour linking the suit. For example purple for swords and yellow for coins. Feel for the colours meaning, how does this colour make you feel? For me the colour orange represents courage, enthusiasm, warmth and joy.

Get a feeling for each card. Which cards do you like? And why? Which one is your favourite card? Which ones your list favourite card? And why?

Once you fell you have familiarised yourself through the imagery, colours, patterns, shapes, tones and what ever other characteristics are in your deck. Tell your deck a statement and see how it responds – how you like it. How pretty you think it is. Then feel for the vibration of your deck.


To Ask Questions

Start by asking your deck questions so that you can familiarise yourself with its capabilities and what the two of you can accomplish together. Questions you could ask:

  • What kind of a Tarot deck are you? What card sums up your personality?
  • What issues/areas of life do you specialize in?
  • How can you best help me?
  • What quality is most important in a Tarot reader?
  • How do you see our relationship?


Care about your tarot deck and it will give you the answers you require. For example wrapping your deck in silk before putting it away, placing a crystal on top of it and thanking it after a reading.
