I don’t consider; tarot cards a game you can play. Here are two sites that might help. I love my Idiot’s guide to fortune telling. It has tarot, numerology and other things. It was a great workbook for me to use to learn how to read tarot cards
Hope this helps!

Tarot cards are not a game. You use them to tell fortunes.

Suggestion by philebus
Contrary to what others have posted so far, yes, tarot is a game.

Tarot cards were created in the mid 15th century by adding a fifth suit of picture cards to the existing Latin suited playing cards. These extra cards took as their theme a Christian triumph procession, hence their original name, Trionfi, meaning triumphs and from which we get our world trump. It was the invention of tarot that marked the introduction of trumps into card games. Further, tarot cards were only used for playing games for more than three and a half centuries – it was not until the very end of the 18th century that anyone thought to tell fortunes with them.

There are two sites where you can find rules to play the numerous games.

One is my own and is still a work in progress but does standardize some of the terms to make things easier:

I’ve posted some additional games in my knols and until I add them to my web site you can find them here:

You can also find a selection of rules with their original language terms here:

I hope you enjoy – these are some of the best card games in the world!

Edit: I wonder why I got a thumbs down here? After all, the question has been posted under card games, it asks how to play, and tarot is a family of card games played throughout continental Europe – and has been for nearly 600 years. I’ve not suggested that they should only be used for this but the games exist – like it or not!

Look at the lines on their hands, tell gibberish about each line, like life line,
Love line, ect. Make you memorized what you said, so each persons life line is in the se spot as the other persons

Suggestion by STEVE
The three lines found on almost all hands, and generally given most weight by palmists:

HEART LINE. It is found towards the top of the palm, under the fingers. In some traditions, the line is read as starting from the edge of the palm under the little finger and flowing across the palm towards the thumb; in others, it is seen as starting under the fingers and flowing toward the outside edge of the palm. Palmists interpret this line to represent matters of the heart, both physical and metaphorical, and believe it can indicate emotional stability, romantic perspectives, depression, and stoicism, in addition to various aspects of cardiac health.

HEAD LINE. This line starts at the edge of the palm under the index finger and flows across the palm towards the outside edge. Often, the head line is joined with the life line (see below) at inception. Palmists generally interpret this line to represent the person’s mind and the way it works, including learning style, communication style, intellectualism, and thirst for knowledge. It is also believed to indicate a preference for creative or analytical approaches to information (i.e., right brain or left brain).

LIFE LINE. This line extends from the edge of the palm above the thumb and travels in an arc towards the wrist. This line is believed to represent the person’s vitality and vigor, physical health and general well being. The life line is also believed to reflect major life changes, including cataclysmic events, physical injuries, and relocations. Contrary to popular belief, modern palmists generally do not believe that the length of a person’s life line is tied to the length of a person’s life.

Is there a site that will teach/explain/show me how to read palms?

If you do tarot reading, fortune telling or practice any form of divination?
I want to know how successful I’m going to be at this adventure that I’m planning…. If you can offer any hope, I think I would benefit from your council… The people who have the ability to help me are the ones who refuse to do anything for me.

Suggestion by Mulder
I taught myself how to read tarot cards by using books, internet, other peoples advice, etcetera. Maybe you can do the same thing? Its not as good as learning from someone first hand but if you can’t find anyone its an option. I would try to teach you but I’m still learning myself. Good luck though.

Suggestion by Jennifer N
I used to read cards and practice white magic…I didn’t know that it was against the teachings of God. I thought as long as I wasn’t doing bad things, it was alright. Well, it isn’t alright, and i hope you reconsider fooling with it. It will bring bad things upon yourself and your family. Please, this isn’t a game.

I asked the Lord God to give you wisdom and to send someont to confirm that you shouldnt dabble in those things. Spiritrs are VERY real…and sometimes we get spirits that we just don’t want.

Suggestion by carpediem2
Are you saying that you want to do card readings? It sounds to me that you want to know if you will be successful in an adventure that you are planning … not card reading? If this is correct – I am certainly not a professional but I do readings for family and friend and they tell me that I am very accurate. I will need a little more info … so feel free to email me. I cant promise how soon I can get back to you because I have a full time job and small children. I will give you the info that is provided to me through the tarot.

Is reading your own Tarot readings really bad?
Im new at reading tarot cards and in my book that Im learning from says that Im suppose to be reading my own right now but then someone else thats been doing it longer than me said that Its really bad to read you own future. Is this true? Also is there anyone out there thats willing to help me train and ask more questions to??

Suggestion by Ian
Well considering the fact that is is a pseudoscience, emphasis on pseudo, I’d say you have nothing to worry about.

Suggestion by harpertara
Tarot is not fortune telling. It is a way of helping you understand the underlying forces in your life and how to deal with them. Oracles are meant to be read by the yourself. I know many Tarot and other forms of divination readers, the All say that if you are skilled enough that you should do your own readings. If you are just learning, having a skilled reader Also do a reading for you is sometimes helpful. I think your person who don’t you not to do your own reading is wrong. The only way you can practice and really know if you are reading the cards correctly is to do readings on yourself. Then you can note what the cards said and see if they come true.

Suggestion by Pandora
Palm reading and tarot reading are not meant to tell the future, but rather to tell the story of your past form a non bias point of view. Think of it as a way of counseling a person with out them having to say anything.
It’s a release from the normal world, and cheaper than a professional therapist.

So to answer your question, no it wont hurt you to do your own reading.


Tarot Card Symbolizing Creation

Tarot Card Symbolizing Creation

Get curious to know what Tarot card symbolizes creation? Simply spending a lot of time in searching and practicing the beauty of interpreting Tarot cards, and we’ll easily realize the fact that the Empress is truly the card we’re looking for. Apart from indicating creation, she’s also considered the Great Mother with the symbol of Venus.

What Can We Expect From The Empress Tarot Card?

Serenely, the image of The Empress is seated in a fertile and lush paradise – a place is clearly surrounded by beauty with promise and possibility. As mentioned above, this archetype is reportedly ruled by Venus – the planet of pleasure, love, fertility, sensuality, and harmony with nature. Look! Is she suffused with serenity, dignity, and beauty? She takes the seed, and then transforms it into nurturance that will cause the whole globe to be created by her love. Plus, her openness and sensuality always welcome us to consider the loving creative union as the road to spiritual growth.

Tarot Card Symbolizing Creation

The Empress in this Tarot card embodies the power to channel the intellectual energy into the specific forms of expression, particularly through combining energies of body, mind, and spirit. Believe it or not, her light is inspiring and birthing new experiences, forms, and ideas via a type of “the soul’s photosynthesis.” By transforming our impression of the outer situations, we’ll quickly have a good grasp of their meaning at a deeper level.

This great woman, in an overall view, wears a white luxurious outfit, indicating purity of spirit, decorated by ripe pomegranates of female fecundity and sexuality. Regardless of how often she is fertilized/gives birth or how many forms she can appear in, her basic substance and true nature still remain undefiled and pure forever. Around her neck, it’s simple to recognize 7 pearls of wisdom, which signify her role in awakening 7 energy centers or chakras of the body via her own loving creative expression. As an alternate birthing channel, the throat is truly a high-powered tool of creation. She is speaking with the wisdom of love for creating a world full of beauty, peace, and harmony.

Do we see the heart-shaped shield located at her side? Typically, it is said to be inscribed with the symbol of Venus. Sacred feminine wisdom and love are her protection, but defensiveness seems to be set aside since it is her nature to be generous, relaxed, trusting, and open!
