Can someone help me with tarot cards?
I’m writing a scene in my book that involves tarot cards. When drawing the cards how many do you place out to read? Does it matter?

Suggestion by Nathaniel Palmer
It does not matter for the most part but a classic Spread is the Celtic Cross and its 10 card forming a cross and a staff.

Is it history stories behind tarot cards?
Is each tarot cards based on true story? Is it history? Or is it fiction? like for an example, ‘The Hang Man’ is about the man hanging up side down for 9 days without eating, There he stays for nine days intent on finding his spiritual self.

Suggestion by PaulCyp
It is 100% superstition.

Suggestion by E.H.
It’s all about symbolism, interpretation, and intuition. Each card has an “original meaning”, however tarot cards are like artwork. It’s whatever YOU get out of them. To one person The Hanged Man could represent unlearned lessons, to another it could be interpreted as something completely different. Each card when interpreted individually are stringed together to form a story (in whichever spread the cards have been dealt).

Personally, when I look at the The Hanged Man card I do (indeed) see a person who has made mistakes but has yet to learn from them. The fact that he’s being hung denotes punishment. His face is depicted with a smirk, as if he’s unfazed by his punishment. Hence, he hasn’t learned anything. Kind of like a little kid cracking up while sitting in time out.

I remember taking an Art Interpretation class in college and hating it. I have no idea why I fell in love with Tarot cards when it’s much of the same thing. Whether or not someone believes in them, there are thousands of different tarot cards out there that can be admired and interpreted just for the artwork and symbolism in each of them.

What kinds of divination do Druids use?

What kinds of divination do Druids use?
I am a student of becoming a druid and My two favorite methods of divination are crystal ball gazeing and tarot card reading but that seems more like witch craft…… do druids use those two forms also?

Suggestion by Mel
Well I would personally think that all divination would be ‘categorised’ under magic not a path such as witchcraft.. but here’s what google told me 🙂

There are 3 types of Druidic mantic work used by the Ovates:

I. Augury
Predictions based on signs and omens. Use of the 4 elements. Tea leaves, watching clouds, bird flight, animal behavior, gazing into fire or pools of water etc.
II. Prophecy
Using no outer methods, channeling higher wisdom in relation to
future events.
III. Divination
Methods to find hidden things, whether intangible or tangible. More sophisticated form of Augury. Ogham, Druid sticks, card sets, etc.

Suggestion by anatketani
I believe that Druids use the same kinds of divination that most witches do. I know a Druid who uses the Celtic Tree Oracle and loves it. I have also seen her using animal behavior divination, but I do that too.

Suggestion by nostradamus
the druids were the most powerful wizards and sorcerers ever, and it is from them that i am both descended and learned the craft of magic. the divination tools used by the less powerful were rarely used by true druids, who preferred more advanced means of prophecy. among these are using magic to induce an image of the future in the mind, burning of sacred bones to produce symbols that could be interpereted in the flame, and the use of very powerful symbolic seals that have mostly been lost in time these days to show the very distant future. hope this helps you,

Can I get my Tarot deck taken away at school?
I’m getting my first Tarot deck in a few days and I’m really excited to do readings on my friends. I know the main Tarot cards aren’t things you mess with because of their properties but I’m going to be extremely careful with them and do the readings in.. secret you could say. Now I’m just wondering if I could get them taken away by a superior? Has anyone gotten their deck taken away? If it helps, I live in Arizona(for laws, maybe?).

Suggestion by Christian purity
yes sin isn’t allowed in schools or it shouldn’t be anyway.

Suggestion by Someone Else
Since we’re talking about old people, then you should probably be super careful dude.

Suggestion by warrior_soul
If it is a cause of distraction yes. it is not part of a religious ceremony so you can’t plead that one.

Is the Hanged man (Tarot) a positive or a negative card?

Is the Hanged man (Tarot) a positive or a negative card?
I’ve read a lot about this card and I have been reading tarot cards for almost 11 years now and this card is the hardest to interpret. To me, it has a negative significance and should be more feared than Sword 10 or “The Tower”… But some books describe it as positive: “out of self sacrifice comes enlightenment”.. something like that…

How do you interpret this card: in relationship or love Questions? In profession / career questions?

What is your opinion about this card ?

Suggestion by Eris’s Gift
Like most cards, it has a positive side and a negative. If you are using reversals, it can denote the inability to decide between multiple choices, or an unwillingness to take control of a situation to further it.
Generally, I consider it a positive card because it basically means that you’re open to anything that the world throws at you. This card implies that you have faith in the process and that you are exactly where you need to be at this time.

*That is truly the most boring troll we’ve ever had here…

Suggestion by Kristy
I’ve never seen it as a negative. To me, it hearkens back to the story of Odin hanging on the World Tree for nine days to gain wisdom. It’s self-sacrifice, it’s surrender, and it’s also patience – knowing that enlightenment will come in time.

When I see the Hanged Man in my spreads, to me it indicates that this is not a time to act rashly. It’s a time to accept the position you’re in, even if it’s an uncomfortable one to you – maybe even step back and let another person “win.” Take some time off from striving to succeed, and instead contemplate the situation. Metaphorically speaking, hang from a tree for nine days and see what wisdom it brings you!

…also, wth was with the “TD” guy?? Seriously, that was dumb.

Suggestion by Scarlet MacBlu
There is no single card in the deck that is “positive” or “negative” outside of the context of a specific reading. Even the 10 of Swords and Tower are not negative… they merely represent conditions within reality… anxiety isn’t always a negative thing as it can help us plan for the future and tragic pride isn’t always bad because from tragedy we can grow.

The Hanged Man can mean stagnation, pause, waiting. It can mean a rite of passage, enlightenment and peace. It can mean sacrifice, discomfort and feeling trapped. It can mean gaining a new perspective or looking at things from a new angle (he’s usually up-side-down, isn’t he?).

One way to get a good idea about a card that is bothering you or that you are having difficulty with is to “walk in” to the card. Sit with the card, stare at it, memorize its appearance. Then, close your eyes and start a meditation (whatever method you prefer)… once you reach a good calm meditative state, visualize yourself standing in front of a life-sized version of the card, then step through the frame and into the scene. Walk up to the character in the card and ask him questions… ask him yourself if he’s positive or negative. Ask him yourself what he means. Start a conversation with him. Let him tell you his story on a one-on-one basis in his own words. Journal about what you observe and discover.
Forget the books written by “experts” because these are YOUR cards and YOUR interpretations of them. Doing this may also show you not just what the card means, but may show you WHY this particular card is giving you difficulty. Something about it may speak to a deep part of your psyche that needs healing… it bothers you because you have a particular problem with something that the card indicates. For instance, I had a breif period where I disliked this card and after some journaling and self-exploration, I realized his message of sacrifice bothered me because I had an issue with selfishness and needed to work through my own bitterness towards thigns that had happened in my past. You might have a similar issue or your issue might be completely different. Cards dont’ have singular meanings… they’re interpretive tools and have layers upon layers of complex meanings.

My wife who is a Tarot Master, says for me to leave Tarot as an uknown entity and don’t bother the unknown. She has locked up her tarot cards so I can’t get at them and my advice is to leave well enough alone. The same applies to the “ouija board”.
