Even the most gifted among us won’t be a tarot expert overnight. It takes a lot of practice to not only learn what each card represents, but to interpret what cards mean together based on the person and question at hand. Start off slow and let yourself enjoy the process.
Keep a journal to write about your tarot readings. It will help you to learn and pick out themes and common cards, as well as track your progress over time. Get readings done by professionals you admire, and find other likeminded people you can learn from.
At one point in time, if you said you were a witch you’d be accused of devil worship. And at another point in time, you’d be stoned to death or burned at the stake. It’s not completely without ridicule today, but it’s become more publicly accepted and admired and therefore there’s a lot of learning opportunities for those who are interested.
Being a witch, of course, is not about waving a magic wand and turning someone into a toad or twinkling your nose to cast a spell a la Bewitched. If you find yourself drawn to spirituality, the metaphysical, animals, tarot, and mediums, you just might a witch. There’s no wrong way to go about witchhood as long as you’re respectful and don’t harm anyone or anything in the process. If you want to cover your house in crystals and cleanse water under the full moon, by all means do what you please. But if you’d rather practice in private without extra accessories, that’s fine too.
