Online tarot card reading has become pretty popular within the last few years. Even meme accounts have hopped aboard the astrology train, with some even offering personalized tarot and birth chart readings. However, if you’re not looking to add your name to a waiting list and want to get an online tarot reading ASAP, look no further. Here are 10 of the best tarot sites as recommended by users.

How does an online tarot reading work?

Before we detail the best tarot sites for an online reading, let’s explore what getting a live tarot reading online may look like.

This process may differ depending on the website you visit, the type of reading you’re looking for, and the reader you choose. Still, each live online reading will follow a similar procedure. First, you introduce yourself and ask a question. Then you’ll be prompted to pick a card. Your reader then interprets it and shares its meaning. This allows you to reflect on the symbolism of that card as well as its relevance to your life.

But if you choose to do a recorded consultation, it’ll look a little different. When you book a consultation, you fill out more than just your name. This preliminary information usually includes the type of reading you’d like, where you want the reader to focus their intentions, and any question(s) you have. Then, instead of you picking a card, the reader will use their intuition to pick one for you after shuffling the deck. Then they will interpret the card’s symbolism and meaning and either send you a PDF or written response or a video or audio clip. This is a great option for people who are nervous about receiving a reading or have a hectic schedule.

Best tarot sites for a live reading

1) Best site for live tarot reading: Keen

If you’re interested in a tarot reading, learning your Life Path number, or receiving a love reading, Keen is one of the best sites around. Although the site has low ratings on customer review services like SiteJabber, you’ll see most of the complaints aren’t about the readings themselves but how the site runs its payment options.

To avoid conflict, reviewers recommend only loading the amount of money you plan to use for a reading at any given time. Because if you upload $40, spend $15 on a call and then forget about the balance and let sit too long, Keen will deduct value for “inactivity.”

Keen is also offering all new users three free minutes to use towards any reading!
