Tarot card the fool meaning help!!!?
Poeople here on yahoo answers have been telling me that the fool does not mean a new beginning but every tarot card meaning website says it does, for example,

– Tarot Card Meanings ool Tarot card is a card of potential, new beginnings and innocence. This Tarot card s the highest potential for your life, reaching a state of renewal and new beginnings e each day is an adventure and each moment is lived to the fullest. The Fool card sents the beginning of all creativity and a desire to accomplish new goals (or to, at lea he opportunities are just waiting to be taken advantage of. arot reading, the Fool represents the need to set forth on a new.

So who’s right? I’ve been wanting to get a tat that symbolizes rebirth besides the common pheonix and everything these websites have been saying about the fool is so perfect but I don’t want to get a tattoo and be wrong about it.

Basic Tarot Meaning

At #0 (or, in some decks, #22, the last card as much as the first of the Majors) the Fool is the card of infinite possibilities. The bag on the staff indicates that he has all he needs to do or be anything he wants, he has only to stop and unpack. He is on his way to a brand new beginning.

But the card carries a little bark of warning as well. While it’s wonderful to be enthralled with all around you, excited by all life has to offer, you still need to watch your step, lest you fall and end up looking the fool.

Thirteen’s Observations

As a card, the Fool ultimately stands for a new beginning often involving a literal move to a new home or job. The querent (meaning the sitter, or the one asking the cards for advice) might be starting to date again, or trying out some new activity. There’s more than just change here, there is renewal, movement, and the energy of a fresh start.

In the Tarot, cards like The Magician or The Hermit can often stand for the querent or for someone in the querent’s life. The Fool, however, usually stands for the querent, himself. They are back at zero, whether that be in romantic affairs, or career, work or intellectual pursuits. Far from being sad or frustrated by having to start over, however, the querent feels remarkably *free*, light hearted and refreshed, as if being given a second chance. They feel young and energized, as excited as a child who has discovered a new toyshop. Who knows what they will find on the shelves?

In addition, they likely have no idea where they’re going or what they’re going to do. But that doesn’t matter. For the Fool, the most important thing is to just go out and enjoy the world. To see what there is to see and delight in all of it.

Unfortunately, this childlike state can make one overly optimistic or naive. A Fool can be a Fool. That business opportunity might not be so surefire or amazing as it seems, and that new lover might not be so flawless.

Like the Fool, you might be so busy sightseeing and imagining the possibilities that you completely miss the fact that you’re about to go right off a cliff! The card advises that one listen to that watchful little dog, which might be a concerned friend, a wise tarot reader, someone harassing you from the sidelines, or just your instincts. However exciting new beginnings may be, you still have to watch your step.

Is there a site that tells the meaning of each tarot card in each possible position on the tree of life spread?
Is there a site that gives an explanation of the meaning of each card in each possible position on the Tree of Life spread?
I do this spread very often, and while I love consulting my personal library, I was wondering if there was a website that either had drop down boxes for each sephirah or something..
Anyone come across one?

Suggestion by krazyabouthim
satan/demons try this. satan/demons have been around since the beginning so they know much about family, friends and others. Psychics use demons to tell them things like this. A demon will tell them to tell you something like this: ‘your mom will call you in two days’. And then to make this happen demons go to your mom’s house in two days and whisper until she calls you. Demons just manipulated your mom to call you, but you think the psychic is something. Well they are evil and use evil to do and/or influence things to keep you from God.
Do not invite evil into your life or that of others.

Suggestion by Scarlet MacBlu
I’ve not seen one, but that’s an interesting idea. I wonder if you could create one.

Tarot Card Spread unsure of meaning can anyone help?

Tarot Card Spread unsure of meaning can anyone help?
i have had quite a few readings before i got cards and i did the cross of truth spread. the question i thought of was just if ill be in a relationship again in the near future.
1st card 6 of wands
2nd Temperance
3rd The fool
4th The Star
5th The Empress

i used gilded tarot cards.
thanx

Suggestion by IceFire
I think yes. 6 of Wands = Victory. Temperance tells you to wait patiently and it will come, The Fool says don’t be afraid to go for it. The Star gives you hope and the Empress gives abundance. Overall, you will be successful.

Suggestion by Rev. Lynn D.
Wow, great cards. Yes you certainly will. Be patient for the right person to come into your life. Don’t let past experiences cause you to be afraid to try again with someone new. Believe and have hope for a new bright future.

If you want to have a child, then that is possible. The Empress is fertility so if you don’t want a child, be aware of that.

Tarot card reading…already have the spread, card, & meaning laid out. Can someone give me an indepth reading?
I did a Past Life spread and have some questions.
I tend to scribble notes down of what the card means as I go, so I’ll just put that down as well.
But I wish that someone could and would explain this more. I know I can go and look up in depth meanings of each card, but the cards are all connected. I hope someone can connect them for me.

1. Basic soul nature coming into this past life.
Queen of Swords Reversed
maintain mental balance and you will know the truth. Clarity and focus even amidst doubt, distraction, and confusion.

2. Environment.
Ace of cups
sign of new beginnings

3. Early years.
9 of Wands Reversed
extreme difficulty or stress to contend with

4. Education.
Knight of Cups Reversed
experiencing a negative reaction to the increased demands of the world upon you; passive person being pushed towards action or commitment and you do not like it; slow emotional growth or developing too fast.

5. Accomplishments.
Knight of Swords
events happening quickly/out of the blue. Risk of chaos unless someone is there to take control

6. Occupation.
The Hierophant
is deeply connected spiritually to know how we find the meaning of life. Awareness of other dimension to life; a realization we are all bound to one another in some sense.–Spiritual advisor, teacher.

7. Social status.
Page of Swords Reversed
acting without thinking; letting immediate desires seduce; overly dependent; exaggerated emotional outbursts

8. Relationships.
3 or Swords
attack of the blues, a bitter disappointment, or a setback. At worst, a heartbreak, pain and suffering caused by someone that has wounded you deeply.

9. Family life.
2 of Wands
Choices, dilemmas, or union. Choices between staying put or moving on.

10. Death.
Page of Pentacles
beginning of a new project or enterprise …..?

11. Lessons learned during this past life #1.
Ace of Swords
realizing ambition is clearly destined for success. may still be in embryonic stages.

12. Lessons learned during this past life #2.
5 of Swords
Walk away from destructive situations, as you are most certainly fighting a losing battle.

13. How this past life affects querent’s current life #1.
Death
Transition of life [I’m really not sure of this one.]

14. How this past life affects querent’s current life #2.
5 of Cups
much deeper narrowing pain. [I also am not completely sure about this]

It sounds like this past life of mine had it a little rough. Is that why I got the 5 of Cups for the 14th card?
Also, I’m not sure if the Death card is just straight forward or if it means a transition of life.

There are some similarities in my past life that have not changed. In the Page of Swords, I act without thinking a lot. But how is that under social status? [#7]

Also, the Knight of Cups Reversed for Education.I tend to push against society and what it excepts of me…But sometimes I feel myself becoming passive about all of it…and life. So my soul has always been resistant to the demands of the world? Am I supposed to change that? [#4]

The Hierophant for occupation. As a Taoist, does this mean I was spiritually aware then? Did I carry some of the same belief then? Does that all in a sense mean I could be closer to enlightenment if my soul is aware? [6]

Just, if someone can go in depth and explain each card and what it means when next to the next card.
It would be greatly appreciated.
Daniel, we have different religions and different beliefs. I respect yours. Now please, respect mine.

wtf? why did you write this longwinded book? and: anything to to with tarot cards or astrology is evil

Suggestion by General D. Ypsilanti
Wish I could tell you more, but I have to go see a friend when I have
my cards read. I don’t find it evil at all,
but usually quite helpful.
Astrology is another big help to me. I figure
if it was good enough for famous Psychiatrist
Carl Jung to use as a shortcut to understand his
patients, it can help me too.

Could someone please explain reverse tarot card meanings to me?
I’ve read tarot cards for quite a while now, but I still don’t understand the whole “reverse card” thing… Please explain?

Suggestion by No Hope Without Nihilism
I would guess it’s a cop out, to explain the times when the opposite of what was predicted happens. But I don’t know.

Suggestion by Cynthia
A reverse Tarot card is when it is upside down from your view, the meaning of the card is then the opposite of what the non-reverse meaning is..if that makes sense at all… so like if you get a card that means good health, but its upside down it means bad health could become ill..

Tarot card deck differences? ?
I have bought a book on tarot reading and now want to buy a deck of 78 cards. There are so many different ones… is there any difference in them or is it just the pictures?

Suggestion by SadharaSatguru
Hello

There are hundreds of decks out there, all wrote on different philosophies.

The most common are the Rider Waite, but go to a deck your drawn to!

Sadhara

see profile 🙂

Suggestion by Shiori_hime
Some of them use different terms as well, and I’ve also seen some with different symbolism than a standard deck. For example, my Art Nouveau deck has Coins and Staves instead of Pentacles and Wands. I think some of Major Arcana cards have different names as well. My Manga tarot uses a lot of Japanese or Japanese-inspired symbolism that doesn’t appear in other decks.

I say just buy whatever deck seems the best to you. If you would prefer to start with something exactly like what your book talks about, see if there’s a specific one mentioned in your book and if you can get it. If you’re not bothered by your deck and your book being a little different, then just spend some time looking at all the different decks available and see which one(s) you want. You can have as many as you can handle — I have three and would love more, and many of my friends have multiple decks too, though plenty of people just have one.

What the death card from the tarot card deck mean?
Just curious

Suggestion by Desirae
The end of something not necessarily a life either.

Suggestion by ALEX
You just paid $ 20:00 for nothing.

Suggestion by wilds_of_virginia
I wish I could post a picture of this card from my deck. It shows a skeletal knight on a horse with a large sword blocking your life path. You have to get past this guy in order to grow, but you have no way of defeating him. You are just a weaponless pilgrim on a journey. You can detour, or hide or even retreat, but Death will be there waiting. To move on, you must approach Death and let him strike you down. You will wake up further down your path with Death behind you. There is no other way.

I practical terms, this means you must let a part of you die in order to grow. Just like a snake sheds its skin, you must leave behind thing which you have out grown. This isn’t nearly as grim as it may sound. Maybe you know twentysomething slackers who don’t want to get a real job and leave home. Or people in their late 20’s who still act like college kids, partying it up every weekend.

What is it that is holding you back, AMS? Is there a part of your life which must be shed in order to continue growing? I can only ask the questions, you must answer them.

In a Tarot deck of 78 cards, what are the odds of pulling the same card twice in a row?
Mathematically, it’s 1:78 to pull a specific card. But what are the odds of pulling the SAME card twice in a row?

Suggestion by Dr D
(1/78)^2 = 1 : 6084
= 0.0164 %

I just want to know how to get into it if your a beginner.
Maybe some useful information.
useful websites.
Maybe someone
could tell me the “NO’S”
for Tarot.
I just want to learn more about it and
I want to to start learning how to do it.

Suggestion by Miss 6
Everyone has their own way of tuning into the deck for them. My advice would be for you to go to the bookstore and study the decks that they have there. If you find a deck that “speaks” to you then get it. Most decks come with a companion book that goes over the meanings to the cards as well as the spreads you can use.
Believe or not a pretty good book is the Idiot’s Guide I know some people who have it and they really like it.

Suggestion by philebus
OK. There are broadly two main uses for tarot cards and the answer to your question depends on how you choose to use them.

The original use, unfamiliar to the English speaking world but popular throughout continental Europe, is for a family of card games. In fact, the picture cards of tarot were the first trump cards! These games are all what we call point-trick games, this means that like bridge, whist, or spades, players win cards in tricks – but unlike those games, different cards carry different point values and so it is not the number of tricks won that wins you the game but the number of card points contained within them. There are two types of tarot pack used for playing games, there are those that feature the old traditional Italian designs, and there are those that have French suits with various themed trump suits (such as Asterix comics, or local scenery, ect).

For rules on how to play the games and where to buy the cards for them:

http://www.tarocchino.com
http://www.pagat.com

The other – and in English speaking countries, the most familiar – use for tarot is for divination. This practice only dates to the end of the 19th century in France.

There are a huge number of methods offerend for this use, so I would suggest looking here:

Around 10-20$ where I live. In the US, it’s probably cheaper.

Best Tarot Card deck for me?
I want one that will show every aspect of life, not just for like love or family or anything. Whats the best deck for me?
And by the way, i don’t know much about tarot card reading but i DO NOT want a beginners card deck. And i would prefer to buy it at Books A Million, or waldem (spelling?) books.
Thank you!

There aren’t really such thing as a “beginners deck”. Beginner books, yes; beginner decks, no.

You could always go with the classic Rider-Waite deck.

Suggestion by hudsongray
You need to look at the art to see what you’re drawn to. There are several REALLY good sites for that. Plus reviews on the deck.

This site is great–you pick the style of deck first, then look through the selections. Cards are compared side by side.

I recommend the Crowley deck…but honestly you should see them (and handle if possible) yourself and see what draws you.
