Tarot 101: A Beginner’s Guide

It’s beautiful to witness the curiosity surrounding Tarot rise among Latinx spiritual seekers. Tarot has come a long way since the days my abuela would read for clients in her backroom when being a professional Tarot card reader was still stigmatized and considered dark and unprofessional. Tarot is now rightfully being recognized as a tool for positive spiritual advancement. If you’ve been told you have to be psychic to read tarot, please note: that is an outdated outlook on this ancient esoteric art. Anyone at any level or with any ability, psychic or not, has equal access to the knowledge of tarot. What matters is the approach. Coming from good intent, gratitude and wanting to encourage your personal spiritual enlightenment will allow you to develop a wonderful connection with the Universe through your personal tarot deck.

You’re here because you’re wanting to either draw accurate personal spreads on yourself or simply want to understand tarot better and how it can be utilized as a tool to integrate into your personal healing. I spoke with Latina Tarot YouTuber, JJ Constellation, who shared insight into some of her personal tips and tricks for those who are seeking to gain a basic understanding of tarot for uses such as personal spiritual development.

“Tarot is an amazing tool. It helps you gain insight into your subconscious. It’s very therapeutic,” JJ Constellation says.  Whether you’re a novice or looking to go pro, tarot lovingly embraces all. This is the Beginner’s Guide to Tarot — for you!
