Best Tarot Card Apps: Learn to Read Tarot at Home

The tarot is only a facet of divination, and it’s rewarding and fun to learn. We all need guidance right now, as the global pandemic shows no signs of slowing down. With tarot, you can take the time to learn about yourself while keeping busy on the inside, and now you can learn right on your phone.

Ultimately, an app, even the best one, should be a springboard into learning, or a quick way to center yourself, and not necessarily the only way to use tarot if you’re really into it. . As Porsche Little, a Brooklyn-based artist and witch (who has a very informative YouTube channel), explained, apps are great for learning the meaning behind the cards, especially if you don’t have your own deck. But it’s important to remember that “tarot is quite sacred and there are a lot of connections involved,” she said.

That said, it’s nice to have the ability to try something out without committing to spending a ton of money, and if you just want to have a little fun, the apps are a solid entry point. So if you’re ready to learn how to read tarot cards, we’ve rounded up the best tarot apps available right now.

It is important to remember that the tarot is a helpful hand and a guiding light. It cannot predict your death (no, the death card does not mean you are doomed) or set in stone what awaits you in the future. The answers you find with a reading are already within you, they just need help to come to the surface. And if you don’t like the answer you get, you can change lanes.
