Your tarot journal holds a lot of valuable information .....

If you're serious about tarot and tarot readings, then one of the most important things you can do is keep a tarot journal. Don't worry if you're not someone who loves to write - keeping this kind of journal is more of a journey.

You'll find many articles giving you advice on what sort of journal you should keep, what you should write in it and how often .... but it all boils down to how YOU want to journal. It's a very personal thing and there's no right or wrong way to go about things.

Here, I've just jotted down some ideas which I use myself and which you might find useful. Feel free to use or discard them as you see fit:

  1. Keep a tarot journal with one page dedicated to each card
  2. Write down all the meanings which you connect for each card
  3. Choose one meaning, one key word or a phrase for each card
  4. Read this meaning many times so it becomes ingrained in your subconscious
  5. Make up a cheat sheet and do practice readings
  6. Feel free to change the meaning of any card
  7. Make sure you let your subconscious know about these changes!

Your journal is unique to you - what you put in it is down to you. You can make it as simple or as elaborate as you wish. You may want to add images or drawings; I do that with my own journals. I like to put images of the actual cards to reinforce their meanings.

It's useful to date your entries, even if you're only adding a new keyword or phrase. Being able to look back over the years at your entries is fascinating and gives you a deeper insight into the depth of tarot and your readings.

Keep your journal away from prying eyes if you don't like the idea of anyone reading your inner thoughts. Privacy means you can open up in what you write, without worrying about what others may think.

Having a unique tarot journal is one of the special joys of working with tarot .....
