Tarot for the 21st Century!
I struggle with the learning too...We are going to do practice readings in the Student Lounge if you're interested!
We will talk soon okay?
I never had a "mentor" when I was learning, nor when I adjusted to all the messages from various spirit levels!
However, Anna has given me vey good & practical advice on my private practice - how to handle persistent clients, how to determine rates, etc. and for that I am very thankful!
I never had a mentor, but something amazing happened to me...I have been reading Tarot for at least 5 years. I recently began doing readings professionally and loving it. My father just sprang on me that my great-grandmother used to read the Tarot also. How could he not have told me before???? Now I kind of know where that feeling of being drawn or called to the Tarot came from. So I guess I do have one, I just never knew it...dammit. LOL. <3 Mishka
I jioned the ATA and through there i recieved a mentor. She is awosome i have learned so so much from her. I had a habit of doubting myself however she has helped me through this and i don't anymore.
I started doing free reading for FTN and it has made a difference for me. I find that when i do readings that it just comes to me for the most part.
I keep paper and a pen at my bedside because i fine myself when doing readings that when i go to bed i just come up with things in requrads to the reading i am working on at that time.
Good thread, Mary.
Like others, I never had a mentor. I do come from a family with "gifts." In my youth, I used the ordinary playing cards. In the'70's when I came to Canada, I stumbled upon Tarot Cards in my book club. It took me years to get into it. I learned a lot from books. After years of learning and reading about tarot, the cards now just "jump" out and speak to me.
And now, thanks to the internet , there are so many aspects to tarot that opens up a whole new world and outlook on tarot. I read for FTN for two years, that helped a lot.
Tarot has inspired me to write at first about tarot , then tarot opened the world of spirituality. Tarot inspired me to even have my own website even if I knew nothing of the html lingo. That was then. It is great to have website like Tarot Guild and Chery's site, Tarot Canada International. There is so much to learn about and from tarot.
