you might like that blog. personally no, you don't really need a certificate just practice. it would look nice on your website, but a certificate in tarot reading [in my book anyway] is a waste of money. study yourself, there are plenty of sites to help new readers. practice with friends and family for free until you feel confident enough to start your own business. perhaps try mailing people in the business to get some advice from them. Kelly-Ann Maddox is a lovely person and she's a spiritual counsellor as well as tarot reader, you might enjoy her videos on tarot, perhaps send her an email asking if she got any special training or if she has any tips to start your own tarot reading business.
