Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: With regard to reading the cards, I will devise and order for my clients the best tarot consultations, according to my judgment and means; and I will take care that they suffer no hurt or damage. Nor shall any persons entreaty prevail upon me to read the cards in a manner that brings hurt or damage to anyone; neither will I counsel any tarot reader to do so.
Complete Book of Tarot: The incantation myth: you must say a special prayer or perform an incantation before reading with the cards.
Complete Book of Tarot: Crowley believed that newcomers to the tarot could truly appreciate the cards only if they observed closely how the tarot behaves over a substantial period of time. In other words, an understanding of the tarot comes only through extensive experience with the cards, treating them as if they were sentient beings. How do you get to Carnegie Hall?

Tarot Triumphs: Since Tarot is a fluid, imaginative medium of divination, it is best used, in my view, to give readings for others. However, when you are first learning to work with the cards, you may need to use yourself for practice. In this case, I suggest picking a question where the issue is a minor one, a matter of harmless interest, or even about a situation completely outside your own affairs. ‘Why is she being so difficult at the moment?’ might pinpoint the passing trouble with a friend who isn’t her usual self. ‘What kind of holiday should I take?’ could give you some useful ideas for your next vacation. You could even have fun trying to figure out who will win the next election.
