How to Read tarot cards? what to do before a tarot card reading?
I wanna buy the Rider-Waite tarot deck. What can I do before a tarot reading& I heard you have 2 pray before a tarot reading. If u don’t what will happen? Advice?

Suggestion by thorndrose
Everyone has their own tarot ritual. Some have elaborate prayers and rituals. Me? I shuffle the cards while thinking about the seeker’s question. That’s it. The sky hasn’t fallen yet. 🙂

Every tarot reader has their own way of preparing for a reading, and even their own belief about how it works. The person who told you that you have to pray probably uses that to help them focus their mind so that they can pick up the messages from the cards more easily. That’s the one thing that all tarot readers agree on, you have to focus your mind to read the cards.

Rider-Waite is a good, solid deck, and many of them are actually packaged with books of how to read the cards. You’ll want to experiment with different card layouts to see what works best for you – I usually use a 15-card layout, but that’s just what works for me. Many will use a 3- or 5 card layout with the cards in a row, others will use a cross formation, etc. You may also find that you don’t really connect with Rider-Waite, but find another deck easier to work with, or you may find that a layout that works with one deck doesn’t work with another.

Which all sounds really complicated but if you practice you’ll get it!

Have you ever asked yourself why you find things like this so fascinating? The reason, I suspect, is because down inside you feel uncertain and nervous about the future and think these things might help you feel more confident.

But this is precisely why I urge you to put your trust in God alone for the future. As I have often said, predictions like these about the future are almost never on target (or else they are too vague to really mean anything). Why build your life around them or get your guidance from them? They are only a substitute for the guidance you really need—which is from God.

My other concern, however, is one that I hope you will take very seriously. These things may seem innocent and amusing at first—but it’s easy to get more and more fascinated with them, and eventually become involved in occult practices that are not from God.

Don’t be misled: Occult practices are not from God, but from spiritual forces opposed to God. Instead, put your faith and trust in Christ. When we know Him, we know we are safely in His hands no matter what the future holds. The Bible is right: “When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists … should not a people inquire of their God?” (Isaiah 8:19).

Need help finding a specific tarot card deck..?
My step-mother bought me a deck of tarot card that I wanted. This was 7 years age and i can’t find them. I tried to look everywhere but all i get are pictures without a shred of hints as to who published them. I do longer live with her and it kinda had sentimental value, but buying a new deck would be better than nothing… Please help if you can. And also, no Religious biblical talk please. here’s a link to the picture of what it looks like. My step mom looks kinda like the world card, as far as the hair and face goes.,simg:CAESEgnsFsR8hs65nyFsagxioZuuVw&iact=hc&vpx=338&vpy=78&dur=1547&hovh=275&hovw=183&tx=42&ty=367&ei=WrxxTfPkHY_0tgPp6dXHCw&oei=WrxxTfPkHY_0tgPp6dXHCw&page=1&tbnh=118&tbnw=65&ved=1t:722,r:3,s:0&biw=1003&bih=559
I’m sorry. Um… the deck that first appears is the actual deck. there are no links that lead to the deck. I tried to find a specific link to find it. I really wish i could be more descriptive or something but that’s the best i can do. I guess i was hoping someone had that type of deck too and would be able to tell me the publisher or author.. Wishful thinking huh? lol Thank you for trying though.

Suggestion by man in a mouse suit
the link you gave gives a goole image page of tons of different tarot decks. give me a link to one specific deck.

Suggestion by Brigid
I can’t say I’m familiar with that deck, but I will do what I can to find it.

Here is an amazing site that I love for looking at different decks. They have pictures and reviews of what I believe to be every tarot deck ever made including some that were never finished or published. If you ever decide you would like to buy a new deck (even if you find this one, a lot of people like having multiple decks) I would strongly recommend checking it out here first. This is something I say to everyone. They have great way of organizing them – theme, style, etc. as well as a general browse and search.

Generally, most modern decks (the common ones, at least) are published by Llewellyn. I do not believe this is one of their decks, but I will have a look at their site as well. For every deck they offer, their website has pictures and details about it. The same goes for

I do sincerely hope you find this deck, especially if it is an older one that is now out of print. The hassle I went through trying to get another Moon Oracle deck has made me understand how important it is to hang onto these things. 🙂

EDIT: This deck seems quite similar to the one shown.

What is your favorite Tarot Card Deck?

What is your favorite Tarot Card Deck?
what is your favorite deck to use and why?

Suggestion by The Great Gazoo
The Flintstones Tarot.

Its the only one that really works.

Suggestion by Logic / Reason / Evidence
Alister Crowley had a beautiful pack designed for him.

Suggestion by George
The Tarot of the Old Path.

It’s a Wicca Tarot deck, although I’m not a wicca follower I love the imagery.

I think thats the important factor when choosing your deck.
You need to go with the one that feels right for you.

I like that the Tarot of the Old Path has “Temptation” instead of “The Devil”, “The Guide” instead of “Temperance”, “The Close” instead of “Death” and “Karma” instead of “Judgement”.

It’s a little less Christian in it’s symbology although The Lovers, which is probably the best I’ve seen, has more of an Adam and Eve theme than most other decks.
However it doesn’t have the serpent as you would see in the Rider-Waite-Smith Lovers

The more you look at the imagery, learn the story and origins behind each picture, understand the numerology in numbering of the cards etc the more critically you can look at Tarot decks and the more you can divine when using them.

A good tarot card deck in Las Vegas?
Exactly what the question says.
Where I could buy a good tarot deck here in Las Vegas?

Suggestion by sybil_the_soothsayer
Check out the local new age bookstores…you can look at a lot of decks on the site below and also, order from there, if you wish…

Suggestion by catlover
i have no idea

Suggestion by majiklee21
I dont know about las vegas exactly – but i know every major bookstore now stocks them and a variety of them aswell. Otherwise, i would suggest buying from a reputable seller on the net, or looking up in local yellow pages for – “new age” listings, which may give you a selection of magick stores in your area, from which you should be able to procure many a selection of tarot cards and other paraphenalia. if you are novice, i suggest the “Rider thwaite” pack, as its symbols are easier seen, than it would be in say an artistic pack.

Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning – King Of Cups
King Of Cups

Introduction: The King of Cups speaks of balanced male and feminine energy; he holds all the positive qualities of both masculine and feminine. Often he indicates a literal man in your life. Usually, when he represents a ‘live person’, he’s referring to a very kind and loving man, who will generally have hair on the lighter end of the spectrum. Know that you are supported by the universe, in ways seen and unseen, when he appears.

General: In general the King of Cups represents kindness and compassion. There is an element of pure and true love in your life no matter what your situation when he appears. Nurture yourself, and allow others to nurture you, when you receive this card in a reading.

Work: In the context of work, this card usually points to a male boss or co-worker who is very much “on your team.” Don’t hesitate to ask him for support if you need it. If you’re wondering how others feel about you at work when the King comes up, know that they appreciate and respect you and your work more than you know. Things are likely to be improving at work when the king appears.

Love: With regard to “love questions,” when the King appears, the news is very good. There are few cards that are more loving than the king of Cups. If you are looking for love, this can indicate someone who is very balanced and loving headed your way soon. The suits in the tarot are not infallible when it comes to indication of physical characteristics but in general the Cups/Cups will indicate people with hair/coloring on the lighter end of the spectrum. The king bodes well regarding love.

Finances: The king of Cups can indicate a need to face the music financially. Don’t avoid the reality of your financial situation. He also can point you to a need to be generous no matter how tight your financial situations might be. No matter how modest your situation is, there is doubtless something that you can and should share with others, even if it’s “only” an object or your time. This can often “open up” more prosperity in our lives. Give with kindness and compassion, and know that what goes around always comes around. Don’t hesitate to ask for help if you need it.

Health: With regard to health questions, particularly if you are under a doctors’ care, the king reminds us to trust that the healers in our lives are there for a reason. The king can indicate good health news, and trusTworthy advisors/healers (particularly male ones.) Treat your body with care and compassion. Pay attention to what you are bringing into your body and your surroundings when the King appears.

Spirituality: With regard to spirituality, the King can be on the face of it somewhat contradictory, as he combines the generally feminine qualities of compassion, love, and concern, with the male energy of action, accomplishment, and discernment. Meditate on these combinations, and take action. How can you be compassionately active? How can you be loving and still draw boundaries? Start by drawing boundaries for yourself before you consider taking boundaries to others. “Walking meditations” are good and bring insight when this King appears.

Where can I get the New Orleans Voodoo Tarot Card Deck, Or do you recommend any others?
I can’t buy online.. I never owned a tarot deck, and isn’t soo much into divination as is just having the deck an using them for games or justbfor fun,..I’m mostly interested into the new Orleans voodoo because I’m from louisiana and has ties with new Orleans and it’s unique culture. I want them to have this essence like “scary” but don’t take that to far out of context, if you recommend some I can buy from retail please tell me. Btw sorry for the rambling.

Is there a way to print a tarot card deck from the computer?
Well instead of buying one i just want to print it!? Can you do that?

(I hope this question went to the right catagory)

Suggestion by luvmelodio
I don’t believe this is possible. Besides that, even if it was, you probably wouldn’t want to do it.

Tarot cards are like many other things in the metaphysical world. They are embued with spirit and energy. There are hundreds of different decks, with various art on the backs of them. And there are many different kinds of divination cards besides Tarot. (Like Faery Oracle Cards, etc.)

What you really should do is go to a metaphysical shop and feel each deck, even the ones with the same art on them, and find the ones that have positive energy for you. All decks, even the ones that look exactly the same, will feel different somehow. It took me forever to find a deck that felt “right” in my hands, and anyone who sells them understands this and will wait patiently for you to make a decision.

Anything you buy like this, whether it be stones, crystals, wands, herbs or whatever should be bought with the same consideration. Only then will you know that it was meant for you to have it.

(And don’t forget to cleanse and consecrate them once you have bought them. And cover them after using to keep any other energy away from them. If you do readings for others, you must cleanse them again before doing other readings.)

Good luck!

Suggestion by Sandy
Legally? I do not think so, if the site says yes, and has a CC Lisence that states its Share and Share alike, you can.

Suggestion by Damian
possibly, if you had a double-sided printer, but they’d be flimsy, and you would need to cleanse them along with a lot of other things which just aren’t good for printer paper. personaly, i like the first answer,, and am not going to restate what that one said. just do what you think is right, and remember the legalities

I had a tarot card reading on my broken up relationship. i picked a few cards and the outcome card was nine of cups. is that a good card or not?

Oh Jesus, it means you’re going to die in a plane crash.

Suggestion by evirustheslaye
Tarot card is part luck part cold reading, theres no real information obtained from tarot card reading. in terms of what the card means think of something that you can relate to 9 cups, its all about making an association between whats on the card, and what you want the card to say.

frankly i think relationships are too important to be left up to pseudo science like tarot cards. why not just flip a coin?

3 playing card tarot spread meaning?
recently i found 3 playing cards around my house. After reading what they mean out of curiosity I really find it hard coming to a conclusion.

I found 5 clubs, Queen diamonds and 5 of hearts in that order.

My interpretation is there is going to be a lot more stress in my life. I don’t know how to deal with the stresses I’m dealt already let alone anymore?

Suggestion by thorndrose
First glance, things are rough right now, but will get better in short order and stay better. There is some new business about to happen that will relieve financial concerns. There is some major change just around the corner, and while this change will have a positive result it can be stressful if you’re not used to handling change.

It’s actually a very positive reading, indicating that things are getting better. Six of Wands Tarot Card Meaning Video Meaning: Triumph, being recognized for your efforts, high self-esteem but with the potential for arrogance. Meditation: Accept positive recognition gracefully and with humility; avoid the trap of self-aggrandizing.
