Free Tarot Online - The Best Tarot Free Reading Sites

Updated on December 9, 2013

Free Tarot Online To Read Online Tarot Cards

Free tarot online readings have become quite popular over the last couple of years.

Tarot has a rich history of existence.

Starting hundreds of years ago as regular play cards, eventually they became the focus of divination for many people. Even today, while there is a new tendency of using tarot cards for self-growth, spiritual growth and self-exploration, divination using tarot is what it's mostly known for.

Thus it's no wonder that with the emergence and increasing popularity of the internet as a means of communication, learning and entertainment, free tarot online is one of the ways people are getting familiar with the art of divination.

Afterall with virtual tarot you don't need to have a deck, you don't need to deal with learning tarot and know the meanings of the cards. The free tarot cards reading online takes care of it for you. All you need is know which sites to go to, select your cards and start the reading game.

This article offers you some of the free tarot reading places that gives you interesting readings (and fun too) as well as some things you need to know before you try out a free online tarot reading game.

Facade tarot

Facade Tarot

Facade Tarot is maybe one of the oldest websites when it comes to free tarot online. They offer free readings with various divination tools, such as tarot, the I Ching, Biorhythm, and a few others.

To get a free tarot reading, you click on the Tarot icon and you're presented with the next screen where you get to ask your question and tick the box if you also want reversal cards. Then click on "Free Reading" (see image on the right). Next can choose the spread of your choice. A spread is basically a layout of cards, and the most popular ones are the one card spread and the Celtic Cross. However they have many more than that, such as the Relationship spread (when it comes to matters of the heart), The Two Paths, which deals with important decisions when you are a crossroad and need to know which way to go, the Creative Process, which is all about a creative project and how it goes ahead, and a few others.

Once you selected your spread, you can choose the tarot deck that you want to have your cards read with. I usually go with the simplest option the Rider Waite tarot deck. And finally, you have your reading.

Sometimes the reading is accurate, other times it's fun and gives you a chuckle, yet other times it allows you to reflect on it. This is when you're learning more about yourself and the path you're on.

All in all, a nice, easy to navigate site.

Lotus Tarot

Lotus Tarot is another site for free tarot online readings. Personally I like this site better in terms of choice of colors. While Facade Tarot is using a black background which can strain the eyes if you stay too much on the site, Lotus Tarot has a lovely cream pastel that is truly pleasing to the eyes.

The site offers free tarot readings, free numerology readings and also live readings (which are not free). That is optional, however.

For the free tarot reading option there is a single spread of 6 cards, so there are no additional spreads like in Facade tarot. The cards in this spread are all part of the major arcana, which in a way is good, and in a way is bad (especially if you are also using real tarot cards for reading). I feel that by limiting our choices to major cards only, we are limited in what meanings we can get from the cards.

On the positive site, the readings are easy to do, you have 22 turned cards and you click on any 6 to turn them over.

You can get use these cards to get a snapshot of how things are in general in your life right now, or you can ask in your mind a specific question and hopefully the 6 cards will provide the answer.

The readings that I got from this site were quite uplifting and even when "negative" cards such as the tower or the devil showed up, the readings had a way to make you see them in a positive way, giving you ideas on how to turn things around.

This is another great place to have free readings.

Mystic Games

Mystic Games is the name of the third site I'm reviewing here. It is an easy site to navigate and it has free tarot readings along with runes, horoscopes, other games and even various remedies that are worth taking a look at when you're at the site.

Nice pleasant site with a white background which doesn't distract the eyes. Click on the Tarot Readings to get to your free tarot online.

You can register but you can also get a free reading as a guest. If you click on Tarot Spreads, you can choose between the Celtic Cross, the one card of the day, the Joint solution (similar to the relationship spread at the Facade website), Know Thyself, My Greatest Strength and a few others that I'll let you discover on your own. There are quite a few spreads here to choose from, I'm impressed.

Next you get to choose between the different tarot decks, such as the Animal Tarot, Tarot of Marseille, Aquatic tarot (love this deck, I have it at home) and a few others as well.

What I didn't like here was the fact that it asked me for a Java plugin to install in my Chrome browser in order to continue with the game. Many people have it installed, but at this point some might find it annoying and click away to the next site, which is...

Are You Ready To Learn Tarot?

You get much more accurate readings than you get from free tarot online sites

Tarot Goddess

Tarot Goddess

Tarot Goddess is the next site I checked out for this review. This is a site that I haven't actually been to before, so I tried out the various options to see what I get.

The first impression is that the site looks a bit busy, so my eyes wander quite a lot until they find what they want to focus on. I assume some people are hitting the Back button at this point. But I went on.

On the site you can choose between 4 tarot spreads, the Burning question, the Celtic Cross, The past, present and future spread and the Lover's Path. While you're here you can also check out the free oracle readings.

Next you get to choose between the various decks given, such as the common Rider Waite, the Goddes Tarot, the Lover's Path tarot and a couple of others (all in all 6 at the moment).

Next, you enter your name and your question and your reading is displayed right away.

One by one you turn the cards over to see their image and the reading below each card.

I found that while the readings were quite short, I did get some meaning out of them and at times the readings were succint but very accurate.

Not a bad place to get a free reading overall.

Tarotsmith Tarot
Tarotsmith Tarot

Tarotsmith Tarot

Tarotsmith is yet another site with free tarot online readings offered with some interesting tarot decks such as the Surrealist Tarot, The Langusti Tarot, the Marseille, the Visconti-Sforza and of course the Rider Waite tarot deck.

When entering the site you are presented with white text on black background - not my favorite choice of colors, however the site is really easy to navigate, and above all, it's not very cluttered. You see instantly what you need to do to get your reading - your tarot free reading.

You select your deck, the spread you want to use (can choose from over 20 spreads at this time), add your name, optionally your email address, and write your question in the relevant box. Then click on Get Your Tarot Reading.

The next screen greets you with the card on the left and your reading next to it.

      Please not that while you can still reach the Mystic Games site, when you do, as message pops up saying no readings of any kind are available on their site now, because they have decided these are "against god". I relied on the site in the past, but there is no longer any reason to visit it. Oddly an internet search still lists them under free online readings.

      I had had my palm read before. But I haven't tried a Tarot reading. It would be interesting to see the accuracy of these readings.

      @chezchazz: very good point there chazz, there is a place that I do readings online and we were discussing this very thing in the forum. I do feel the the READER (human) needs to be the IMPORTANT factor in it. If you don't have that then I don't feel you are giving them a true reading from your source that guides you!

      I do tarot myself and hadn't heard of some of these sites!! Thanks for sharing them!!

      Very interesting. Didn't know about these sites. Will have to check them out...not sure how I feel about tarot on line though - seems the person reading them is an important part of it and this removes that critical piece....
