One of the questions I hear all the time from my students is this: “can you read tarot for yourself?”
I say yes to that. After all, who knows you better than yourself? But there are problems that can arise when you read your own cards. The biggest issue: getting out of your own way and remaining objective. This can be especially tricky when you are emotionally attached to the outcome.
That being said, you can learn to let that go and find the right head space to deliver a great reading for yourself. Thanks to Courtney Weber, that’s about to get a whole lot easier to do. Courtney wrote a fantastic book, Tarot For One – The Art of Reading for Yourself. I stopped doing book reviews years ago (I don’t have the time) but this is a book that I’m giving a big ole shout out because it specifically addresses a topic that so many of my students have struggled with over the years.
Courtney sat down to chat with me recently about reading tarot for yourself – and her book.
Check out my interview with her right here:

Big thanks to Courtney for making time to talk about Tarot for One. (Psst…if you’re reading this and don’t have her book yet, get on that.)
