In an earlier post, I suggested that learning one card at a time is the best way to become familiar with the tarot cards and their meanings. I recently read an article that leads me to believe that this may not be true.
(Honestly, when I began learning, I dove in, going through each card and its meaning, jotting down my thoughts. I did this in one sitting. I was eager to learn and did not want to wait. I then started doing daily readings of three cards and branched out.)
Learning the tarot two cards at a time will give you an understanding of the cards meanings and their connection with each other. It will also give a better overview of the day. As mentioned in the article, it can be confusing to someone just learning the tarot to pull meaning from a whole day within one card. The two card method should give you something more to connect with.
I'm going to push it one step further. A three card layout could work even better. I'm leaning toward suggesting adding positions, but perhaps you should wait a few weeks and then add some positions.
Each individual will adapt their own way of learning the tarot.
