A word that basically summed up what I felt when I decided to learn how to read the tarot. Frankly, it was a fair assessment given that I grew up in a small Filipino Catholic household and have no one to teach me firsthand. When I thought of memorizing seventy-eight card meanings and piecing them together to form a coherent reading made me question why I even wanted to do it. However, I was able to push through those anxieties because I had a genuine interest and curiosity in this craft. With the Halloween Tarot, its guidebook, and the Predictions Library: Tarot by David Barrett on hand, I decided to forge my way into the fun and (sometimes) frustrating study of the cards.
