Mini Travel Tarot Journal
I decided to make a mini tarot journal, that fits in my pocket, of all the meanings for the 78 cards in a tarot deck. This is a great idea for someone who is learning tarot and also, for someone who has been reading cards for a long time. I love writing down new meanings that come to me for each card. It helps me build a deeper bond and intuitive connection with each individual card.
First, I started from the back of the notebook amd counted out one page for each of the cups suit. I used wasabi tape and labeled that section CUPS. I did the same thing for the following sections: wands, coins, swords, kings/queens, pages/knights, trump 1(1-10), trump 2(11-21), spreads.
I found online free downloadable mini rider waite cards in color, that I printed and cut out.They are cute tiny tarot cards that are perfect for gluing in your tarot journal.
Overtime, I would write the meanings that resonated with me that I either found from various sources, or that came to me intuitively while looking at and reading with the cards. I still have several blank pages in the tarot spread section so I can continue to add my favorite tarot spreads.
I use this cute little journal everyday. Either to reference while drawing cards or to add new meanings. I use it more than other tarot meaning reference books because it has a lot of meanings that are personal to me. I have also started a much larger tarot journal where I will have much more room for my own personal card meanings with more in depth ideas and concepts.
I hope I have inspired you to create your own mini travel tarot journal. It was time consuming writing down all of my meanings so I focused on one or two cards a day. When I finished, I felt a great sense of accomplishment and a stronger bond with my cards. The beauty of creating your own tarot reference book is that these definitions can be used with any tarot deck. These meanings are what the essence of each card feels like to you. So have fun on your tarot journey and let me know how it goes.
