Can I do a Tarot reading on myself?
I just bought a Waite tarot deck and book and just wanted to know if I can do a reading on myself, and if so, how would I do that? I am trying really hard to understand the book so haven’t been able to read my friends cards. She asks me everyday if I could try, but I want to use a little cards as possible and also need to know which cards and what is the least amount of cards I can use to do a reading for her?

That one you selected is one of the hardest. There are others that are easier to interpret. Anyhow why don’t you get one that will interpret the cards for you? I have one in my computer and when I want a reading it gives it to me. The graphics are fantastic. It uses the cards you have.
When you do a tarot reading, who do the cards face?
If you do a reading for someone else do the card face you or them?
Suggestion by Ashley D
they face you, obviously, since your the one reading them, you have to be able to look at them easily in order to interpret them quickly and accurately

well one thing that you will notice with tarot cards is that whatever you do, is your own personal way of doing it, and it’s usually whatever makes you comfortable.
you may have it facing you since you are the one reading it, or choose to have it facing the person whom the reading is for so that they can see their results.
i usually have it facing the person since i want them to be as much a part of the process as they can. i like to ask them what they think the symbols mean, along with my interpretation.

Well there really is no right or wrong way, since it is all a matter of personal taste and what feels right to you, but typically they should be facing the reader as to make it easier to interpret the cards.
I’m kind of self promoting here, sorry- but I wanted to share my new, smaller Silent Tarot deck, since you guys have been with me the whole way through the creative process. Today, I thought I’d do a tarot reading for you- Keep in mind I am not an expert, and I don’t believe in magical fortune telling- but I do think these cards can help you think about your past, present and future and reflect on your decisions. Anyway, enjoy! you can buy the deck here: www.etsy.com
