I felt dumb and silly when I started to read tarot cards, so here are some tips.
1- Buy one deck. I like the Aquarian tarot because it has faces, but any deck with pictures can help you learn faster.
2- Shuffle them before you start, just like you wash bed sheets before you use them.
3- Pick one to three cards. Pick randomly or take the top cards if you like to shuffle. The card on the left is the past, the center card is your policy or what to do, and the third card is your future. Face them towards you. Some people use reversed cards with different meanings, but that doubles what I have to learn. Research often suggests the ten card Celtic Cross, but I like easy. Seven is the most I ever throw down.
4- Look up the meaning of each card. Type a short synopsis if you have time. You can use a book or the info sheet that comes with your cards, but I like to google https://www.psychic-revelation.com for interpretations.
5- Leave the cards out until the end of the day, to see what happened and how to relate it back to your cards.
6- Pay attention to any card that repeats.
7- Shuffle and try again another day.
