Once you start becoming more advanced with your tarot practice, you may start thinking about your options. Maybe your getting to a place with your readings and now you want to expand? Or maybe your wondering what else you could do? You love tarot, and you kow that, but what now?! What were you meant to do with this passion you have for tarot? Let me count the way (and give you some great examples):
Tarot historian- Do you love history? I definitely do. Learning the origins and roots of a tool you probably use everyday can help you better understand the symbolism and importance of the Tarot. Having people who do research of anything is what helps keep that practice and/or culture alive. Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin of the Tarot Association have done an amazing job of researching tarot!
Tarot artist or deck creator- Ever had an idea for your own deck? Maybe you have looked through many different decks but never seen anything that related to you and how you view the world? Then take the leap and create a deck! I'm not saying it's easy, but it is definitely something to look in to if that is what you are an artist or if you have some great ideas. The artist at Baba Studios, Ciro Marchetti, and Robert Place are just some of the examples of the many awesome deck creators.
Tarot Author- Do you have a different perspective on Tarot? Do you relate tarot to an area of your life that is uncommon? Would you like to share that with the public?! You could be an author! One thing that is wonderful about this age of technology is that many things are much more accessible then they used to be like self-publishing your own book! Benebell Wen, Kim Huggens, and Barbara Moore are excellent examples of tarot authors.
Tarot Blogger, Vlogger or Podcast- As I just said, technology has greatly improved our way of communicating our ideas. Having a blog online where you write about things that matter to you or making Tarot videos or having a podcast where you talk about different subjects in Tarot can be a great and unique way to share your point of view with the world. Donnaleigh De La Rose has a fabulous podcast and Angelo Nasios has a great YouTube channel where you can learn a lot about tarot!
Tarot Teacher- Would you like to teach others about reading Tarot? Do you have a knack for getting people to understand things in an easy way? Why not teach classes? Help others and spread the message of Tarot by educating! Rachel Pollack and Mary K. Greer are probably two of the best tarot writers and educators you will get to take a class with!
Is there anything I forgot? What do you do that's different? Let me know!
A place of fun, learning and exploring the awesome world of Tarot.
