If you’re gonna dress like a witch, you damn well better live like one to! Ever since I took a chance on a pretty little book called “The Wild Unknown Tarot Guidebook” (aka a super simple beginner’s guide to tarot) I’ve promised myself I would buy a tarot deck and learn how to read cards for myself.

When I first picked up the Wild Unknown Tarot Guidebook, I wasn’t sure if I would ever read it. Tarot always seemed like a field that took years to learn and as such the book was probably filled with lots of technical language and super tiny font!

Actually no! The book’s number one pro is that it’s more than just about tarot. Every page is filled with amazing artwork and super positive messages. Even if you aren’t using it to read a tarot deck, it always seem to come in useful when you need a quick pick-me-up.

If you’re looking for a book that will give you a lot of insight into the practice of tarot, this isn’t the book for you. But if you’re inexperienced and want a jumping off point to grasp the very basics and jump-start your journey in a positive and ethereal light, get a hold of this book asap!

Fast forward several months and I’m finally getting back on track! I’ve bought my first tarot deck and I’m excited to start learning. Better late than never, right?

I know some of you that take the occasional glance over at my little place on the internet are experienced pagans and tarot readers, so I welcome any advice or links to articles that have helped you. One thing that the Wild Unknown’s guidebook has taught me is that no one can give you all of the answers, you have to try it for yourself and find your own way of reading cards! What do you think?

What I’m wishing for: The Wild Unknown Tarot Deck via Gypsy Warrior, the Witches Brew candle via Gypsy Warrior – it sits in a little iron cauldron! The Witch muscle tee by Gypsy Warrior’s house brand, wire wrapped Quartz crystal earrings by Emely Rose Boutique on Etsy and platform block heels from Boohoo.com.

    Sounds like a good beginner's book/ self-help text which I personally love. I also love that the book emphasizes that the answers can't be given or found outside of you. It's a process. I dabbled in scrying for sometime and actually discovered that I was creepily good at it. But I have a weird relationship with the future so have put it aside.

    But oh my goodness "better late than never"… You'll be learning new things your whole life I hope. Starting your practice of Tarot now is a start… Who cares that you're starting now. You're starting! 🙂

    Tarot is way fun when you do readings in a way that works for you.

    I´ve found a second hand book in German that helped me a lot, where each card was broken down to symbols and their meanings and how to view the card in different aspects. I have been practicing tarot for about a year and I feel that I will learn the cards in like 100 years or something.
    But- read it in a way that works for you. I google "tips on reading tarot" every once in a while to keep my reading on track, but do whatever makes sense to you and helps you find the right answers. Everyone is a expert for themselves in this case in my opinion. For example, there are some that read reversed cards- I don´t. Some have 50 different decks- I have only the classic one and don´t like other variations etc etc. What helped me as well was to document my readings if it was a special occasion and then go over time and see how I´ve progressed with it. It is also a nice memory of a reading that meant a lot to you or of a thrilling time in your life. Good luck and keep us updated! 🙂

    I'm so excited to hear you are getting into tarot! I've been reading for 20 years and I'm always excited to see people get into it too. 🙂

    I'm completely in love with that top! <3
    Also, I've always really liked tarot but never actually got into reading it. I had my first reading this summer though, perhaps I should look into that book myself! Thanks for the recommendation! <3 x
