I mentioned in “How To Read Tarot Cards: Setting Up Your Tarot Notebook” that we’ll be breaking up the card meanings up into 4 sections: Initial Feelings and Impressions, Artistic Impressions, Personal Meaning, Meaning as given by the book.

Question: Can I become addicted to Tarot?
Answer: That truly depends on the person, but I have personally had clients who were dependent on the tarot and refused to live a minute of their life without knowing what was going to happen next.
