Hello, and welcome to my blog! My name is Mariah and my interest in the Tarot budded when I read one too many fantasy novels embellishing their purpose. I decided about a year ago to do some research and determine their true origins and how they are used both practically and spiritually in a modern context. There is such a bevy of information regarding these beauties, that I quickly realized I needed a more organized method for keeping notes and readings. Thus, ‘The Tarot Student’ was born – this is a place for me to chronicle my experiences. Not only do I hope to keep track of my personal readings, but also to delve into some of the history (and mystery) surrounding these special cards and alleviate any negative and misguided connotations associated with them. I invite you to learn with me and contribute your own experiences/thoughts/interpretations – the more the merrier!
