Tips for Memorizing Your Deck

Before you memorize tarot cards, there are three important things that you need to keep in mind. These three tips will serve as the building blocks of understanding the meaning, impact and perhaps significance of each card in any kind of position, flow or question. You are also provided with three methods on how you can draw meaning from the cards or how you can easily interpret them.

Tip #1: Learn Your Deck’s Structure
Being familiar with your tarot deck will help you memorize your cards more including the impact or meanings of the cards belonging in the major and minor ones. The tarot deck is composed of 22 Major Arcana (0 – 21) and 56 Minor Arcana (16 Court Cards; 40 Pip Cards – compose of 10 for each 4 suits).If you want to learn the meanings of the cards, you have to separate them out and individually learn them in different kinds of situations or reading types, before you’ll be able to connect them to one another, you have to know their individual significance.

The Major Arcana are cards focuses on the spiritual and psychological experiences of an individual. It also denotes the inner growth or development of a person. The Minor Arcana are composed of tarot cards that are relating to everyday life or relating to situations with people as well as how an individual is dealing with the daily life and the struggles that come along with it.

Tip #2: Be Familiar with the Four Suits
There are four suits in the minor arcana; these are pentacles (earth), swords (air), cups (water), wands (fire). It’s important to understand the nature of these four suits and the meaning of the ten tarot cards within each suit.
Tip #3: Learn How to Interpret Numbers
The numbers for each suit is composed of 1 to 10; each number within each suit has a specific meaning that you need to understand. Sometimes numbers have a relatively similar meaning but the only difference is the aspect or how you look at it while also considering the suit that it came from. So if it’s number ten for example, ten means the end of a cycle, if it’s ten of cups it might pertain to the end of an emotional journey, if it’s ten of swords it could mean the end of the struggles for that person etc. that’s why it could be focusing on the different aspect of an individual but the number relatively has the same meaning.
Tip #4: Choose Cards that has a Common Imagery
This is particularly helpful for beginners, most expert readers recommend buying tarot cards that has common imagery to help you easily remember because there are some tarot decks that will look kind of unusual and sometimes hard to remember. So try to buy tarot cards that are friendly to you or speak to you because that way you can be easily familiar with it and you’re not going to struggle to figure out what kind it is while you’re doing the reading.
Tip #5: Use keywords for memorization
Now there are a lot of tarot cards and apart from memorizing its literal meaning, you also have to keep in mind its elements, the suits, the numbers and its significance or relation to one another etc., so there’s a lot of things you need to remember and consider while doing a reading which is why keywords can help because it can make you associate or connect the meaning of a particular card and its significance since words are also connected with one another somehow. You can use at least 3 or 4 keywords for each card especially if you’re just starting to learn this craft. It will take a period of time before you fully memorize and understand the meaning of each card so you have to really commit in studying this art if you want to become a proficient reader or be able to give an accurate reading.

The author gets right to the point. After a brief history of the tarot the meaning of each card is explained. She doesn’t bog down the reader with symbolism until she gets to the end of the book and gives an “exercise” of how to read a card. She gives the 2 most popular layouts with a brief explanation of each. As a starting reference, this book is a quick read and gives the beginner a good place to start
