Honestly, this should probably be an easier question than I’m making it.
Day 17: What is your favorite way to Tarot Journal? Planners, apps, bullet journals? – Jen Sankey
What I want is a straightforward physical journal, organized by suit, where I can flip through to the page I want to consult. I like a looseleaf journal so that I can add or take out pages and rearrange them to my heart’s content. I can carry the journal with me, and it’s simple, but attractive.
(If this photo looks familiar, yes, rearranging and improving my tarot journal was one of my 2019 tarot goals from the Day 9 post.)
Despite having that nice purple journal, I currently do most of my tarot journaling in Evernote. (I’m sure other services would let you do many of the same things; I happen to already use Evernote.) I can take a photo of a reading and easily include it with my interpretation. The cards are right there, preserved for future insights. I can search my journal by keyword or tag entries for improved searching. If I find an interesting article on the Web, I can upload it instantaneously and send it to the proper folder, maintaining the original formatting or simplifying it as desired. I don’t have to worry about reading my handwriting, because everything is neatly typed up. I am unlikely to ever run out of space. Nor do I have to lug a heavy book with me—all I need is my tablet or even just my smartphone. But it lacks the charm of a print journal.
