Things Tarot is another tarot discussion list.
- On-line services. All of the major on-line
services have a Tarot section where discussions take place daily. You will
find the atmosphere much more supportive and forgiving than that of
alt.tarot because the services are moderated. Most have a host or hostess
who monitors the traffic and tries to keep disagreements from turning into
flame wars. Each service also has file libraries where you can download
Tarot information, pictures from decks and Tarot software. They are an
excellent networking source for those who live far from other readers.
