Getting Started on your Tarot Journal
Your first step will be to decide what format you would like your Tarot Journal to be. If you prefer hand-writing your journal, you can either purchase a blank notebook or a specially designed Tarot Journal such as Ari Stone’s Daily Spread Tarot and Oracle Journal.
Alternatively, you may like to store your Tarot Journal on your computer or online. Blogs are also becoming increasingly popular and offer the opportunity to share your Tarot Journal with others. A great place to start is with the free Blog tool, WordPress).

What to Write in Your Tarot Journal
