Next Tarot is an online tarot card reader that works for both computers and mobile devices. The Celtic Cross tarot reading, probably the most common one, is actually pretty good. The site lets you shuffle as many times as you’d like, and you can choose 10 cards. It takes you to the spread, which lays out what each card represents pretty well.
Now, when you open the card, you’re hit with an ad and a practical explanation of what the card represents. As you overturn the cards and read them, their meaning shows up at the bottom so you can understand the cards in context. The definitions are decidedly not spiritual or mystical. There isn’t a lot of food for thought as far as the interpretations go, but for those specifically looking for an immediate answer, this is fine. I wouldn’t use this to learn tarot, but I would definitely consider this a fun distraction.
Now, one thing about tarot is that it works. Hard copies or digital, tarot works because it’s channeling the energy of the universe. This reading was actually pretty accurate. There is one glaring problem though: when you click on the cards, they open in a pop-up window. However, if the particular ad showing up in that window is large, then it eats up the space used for the explanation of the card. So, if you choose a card with a long explanation, there’s a good chance you may not be able to read the entire explanation.
- Next Tarot is an overall good tarot card reader for practical explanations.
- Next Tarot helps you understand what the different cards are for and what they mean.
- Next Tarot also lets you choose your cards yourself.
Next Tarot’s choice of using ads on each pop-up card explanation is irritating. The ad space takes precedent over the explanation.
