Tarot DIY Workbook - Preparation for 78 Week Tarot Challenge

Hello again, and welcome to my blog. A few weeks back I talked about starting a 78 week self-exploration course on the tarot. I was all set to dive in, and then a thought occurred to me. Now is the perfect time to start that tarot workbook I've been meaning to get to.

There are plenty of tarot workbooks out there, some are deck-specific where others are more general. I didn't want to have to buy another deck (who am I kidding! I love tarot decks, but the decks I am looking at right now don't have workbooks) and I wanted to take a little bit from this book and meld it with a little bit from that one.

So I decided to make my own.

I got a 3-ring binder from the store and some plastic sleeves. I recommend at least 1.5 inch binder, but I think I went for the 2.5 inch, so I have room for growth. I printed these pages I made up and made sections for my workbook.Overall I have less than $10 into this, and I am pleased.

So far, I included these sections:
Tarot Cards, Tarot Spreads, Tarot Notes and Tarot Readings

Tarot Cards: in this section, I am going to use my printable pages for each card. I am going to fill one out for each of the 78 weeks, to delve deeper into tarot.

As you can see, I started week one! 

Tarot Spreads: a place to put tarot spreads. Not sure if I am going to hand draw or use the computer for these. I am no artist, but I may be able to draw rectangles.

Tarot Notes: I hope to fill this section with tarot tidbits, tricks of the trade, any information that doesn't fit elsewhere.

Tarot Readings: here I am going to record my daily draws and other personal readings. I've made up a PDF for this you can get here.

I also got a few little things to add, just to make things a bit easier. I got a zipper pouch for pens and stickers from a dollar store. Also bought a pack of lined paper, just to jot down notes and longer readings.
As this evolves, I am sure I will re-arrange things, add things, get rid of things, that is why I thought I 3-ring binder would work the best. I had a paper journal as well, but I plan on transitioning all my personal tarot into the workbook.

I hope you found this useful. I would love to see your DIY tarot workbook, share below!

Until next time,
