Why do Christians have negative views towards tarot cards?
I don’t understood why people consider tarot cards to be bad, or evil. I’ve always thought of them to mainly be a collection of symbols and art representing more larger, abstract ideas about the world, existence, etc. What’s so wrong or evil about that?

Suggestion by WTH is this crap!
Religion is an excuse to rag on everything.

Suggestion by Atheist Frog
It’s not just tarot cards, they have a negative view toward ANYTHING that conflicts with their narrow world-view. Everything from rock music to women wearing pants is seen as a threat to their narrow-minded agenda.

Suggestion by pugjw9896
They promote spiritism…

(Deuteronomy 18:10-12) There should not be found in you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, anyone who employs divination, a practicer of magic or anyone who looks for omens or a sorcerer, 11 or one who binds others with a spell or anyone who consults a spirit medium or a professional foreteller of events or anyone who inquires of the dead. 12 For everybody doing these things is something detestable to Jehovah, and on account of these detestable things Jehovah your God is driving them away from before you.

” consults a spirit medium”….Tarot are a medium

Where can I find tarot cards in the ATL area?
I am looking to buy a deck of tarot cards in atl. I don’t like ordering things offline & I would live a neat magic shop or something in my area. Anyone know of anything like this?

Suggestion by major
in my city bookstores used to carry them, I havent checked in a while to know if they still do, if an online book site has them, then a local bookstore should be able to get them for you.

Suggestion by Rev. Lynn D.
Best places in any city are New Age Bookstores. Google New Age Bookstores or Metaphysical Bookstores and your city and state. A list of local stores should come up.

Look for larger stores if you want a big selection of decks.

Depends on the positioning, but it says that you have the power to initiate the relation ship. would need the other 7 cards and their positioning too. (In a nut shell)

Where can i get my art printed into tarot cards ?
I’m looking to covert some art into a deck of cards for card readings any advice or websites would be amazing ?

Suggestion by Mike1942f
Since you say “a deck” I will guess you have a set of tarot picture images and you want to make one set, not sell the art or make up many sets. Since there is no way to use traditional printing methods to make one each without an enormous expense, you are going to have to use color laser copy printing onto either a card stock that matches standard tarot card feel or print and laminate afterwards.
I haven’t handled tarot cards but if they are similar to playing cards, you will have to work with someone knowledgeable in order to get stock that will go through the heat of a laser printer/copier and receive the pigment particles.
I would suggest taking an example of a card from another deck and a disk of your images and start working your way up through the possibilities. It may be as easy as the largest Kinkos in your area or as messy as buying far too much (a ream perhaps) of the card stock from a printers supply company and taking that to a specialty commercial printer that does limited run custom advertising work for business PR projects.

Suggestion by Charlie
There are a couple of options.

If you are hoping to publish (it doesn’t sound like you are but I’m including that info for any wanting to) you will need to shop the artwork around to publishers like US Games, Llewellyn, Tarot Media, Company, and Schiffer. The last two have published a lot of “indie” decks.

You can go to a local printer and work with them to create the deck for you. You will need to arrange the images of about four cards per page, resulting in 20 pages for the card fronts and 20 for the card backs. They can handle the lamination and cutting. This will be the most expensive option and if you go this route you may consider printing additional sets to sell as there is a strong collector’s market that likes custom indie decks. Aeclectic Tarot Forum has a lot of collectors in its ranks that shell out moola for these decks.

Lastly US Games sells blank tarot decks with the design from the Rider Waite Tarot backs on the reverse side. You can reduce your images to the size of the cards, cut them out by hand (a corner cutter is recommended for handling the corners), paste them to the blank cards, and then laminate them. I recommend leaving the laminating and cutting to the pros. This is probably the best option if you just want to create one or two copies for personal use.

The Impact that tarot cards have made on society?
Hello friends, for my american history project i must do a report on Tarot cards and as part of the report I must write about the impact they’ve made on society…but i need some help. Please write below what you think their impact on society is, and if you can how they have evolved over time. Thanks!! 😀

Suggestion by The Dude
they have had none they are shit and we know they dont tell the future

Suggestion by If u understood scriptures u would not be Atheist
they have made society worst by turning God further away from us. He hates these things. They have lied to us and our children by infiltrating Magic beliefs in our society.

The following Scriptures can be helpful to this question:

‘Without God we are nothing,without Christ we have no hope’

‘Everytime a Christian is persecuted, mocked, slandered or hated the bible is proven to be true’

“The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom” “The fool says in His heart there is no God”- The Bible.

“Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.”-Daniel 12:10

Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. -Daniel 12: 2-3

I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. -revelations 6:12-14

From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.-Revelations 16:21

They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes. During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them. Revelations 9:5-6

Suggestion by AnnieMac
Uh… they’ve had an impact on popular culture, being a common cliched plot device in movies for foreshadowing the protagonist’s death?

Are psychics real or a waste of money?
Also do spells really work or are they a scam? D tarot cards reveal the future?

Suggestion by baddhatt
Waste of money

Suggestion by Mitch
Waste. No. No.

Suggestion by Heavy Metal Jesus
They are a real waste of money.
No human can predict, without ambiguity, the future.

“I predict that good fortune is coming your way…” That could mean ANYTHING.

My step mum says I have the spirit of a little girl with me all the time, what does she mean?
Okay, so my step mum knows a lot of things, she can read the tarot cards and when we were talking about it she said i have the spirit of a little girl withme all the time. I am npot scared by this im just really curious at the moment and I am wanting to start reading the tarot cards and getting into this kind of stuff. What does my step mum mean by this?

Suggestion by Bree D
i’m just guessing with my knowledge of ghosts, that she means there could be the ghost of a little girl following you. not necessarily wanting to hurt you, probably just wanting to protect you. the girl could be trying to get your attention. she might think that you’re the one who can help her move on. she could be something like a guardian angel. many things like that. if the girl hasn’t hurt you, than she must be friendly and nice, so I would think that it’s the fact that she wants to try and protect you. that’s just my opinion. hope i helped!

Suggestion by Shenaynay
Unless she has some sort of evidence that a spirit is following you it probably means that she has a very over active imagination.

Suggestion by don c
If I said “you have the spirit of a little girl with you” I would not be referring to a supernatural being like a ghost but to your own energetic spirit and enthusiasm. It is good that you are talking and learning from your step mother. Being close to each other and learning from each other is a very nice thing.

Q&A: Tarot cards: What does it mean when it says reversed position and upright position? Which one do I read?

tarot cards

Tarot cards: What does it mean when it says reversed position and upright position? Which one do I read?
I have heard it means which way the card is facing but i shuffle my cards all in the upright position? So I’m confused.

Suggestion by Atheism Fails Again
It mean’s bullsh*t. Hope this helps.

Suggestion by Chelayil Jayakrishnan
In a few quests in Astrology using the “Prasna Margam”, I have sometimes observed some importance with the directions that the Astrologer faces while performing the act of “Prasnam”.

When the astrologer is facing North or East the results that gets revealed randomly seems to be having some immediate effects, whereas if the Astrologer is facing South or West, the results seems to be coming in the long run perhaps after putting in a lot of efforts.

Suggestion by Scarlet MacBlu
This is an option for reading cards. Some readers shuffle so that about half the cards are “reversed” and there is a mix of cards that face the opposite direction and come up “up-side-down” when dealt into a spread. When they come up “reversed” there are several ways to interpret it… it could be the opposite meaning of the card, it could mean the same meaning as the card but over-exadurated or it could mean the more negative aspects of the cards meaning. The guidbook that comes with your deck already suggests “reversed” meanings and you can use that book to help you figure this out.

Many tarot readers (and all of the professional ones I know) tend not to read reversed. A lot of tarot readers think that 78 cards contains quit enough symbolism to provide a good reading and doesn’t need to be confused by flipping cards up-side-down… besides, the artwork generally is intended to be viewed right-side-up (no painter or artist I know thinks about what their painting would look like “reversed” while creating it.)
It’s a personal choice. I choose to read all my cards upright and know plenty of readers who agree.

As far as “which one do you read” out of the book? PUT THE BOOK AWAY! Don’t use the book when interpreting your spread! The cards are meant to be read as-is… the book is merely a study guide for when you are familiarizing yourself with the deck and the system. When doing a reading, forget the book, even if you get “stuck” on a card. My young freind demonstrated this to me very clearly when she bought her first deck and the guidbook it was supposed to come with was missing from the package. She had no experience with tarot but gave me a spooky accurate reading straight out of the box and pulled a lot of the traditional meanings out of the cards just by examining them and talking through the symbolism she noticed out-loud to herself.
Try that… look at your cards and verbalize about the symbols you see and what they might mean… then apply your observations to the situation in question.

As far as studying, try this… get your guidebook and maybe another tarot book and go through your deck. Try laying out seven cards at a time in order (start with 8, including the Fool and then 7 cards at a time after that) each day… you could also do just one or two cards a day depending on how much time you have and how long you are willing to take. Examine each card and read what the books say about it, yes, even the reversed meaning. Journal about what YOU see in the card and how you see the guidbook meanings in the card and what other meanings they might have. If you can figure out WHY a card means “X” or “Y” and can come to a personal understanding of what that card means to YOU, then you will never need the book again!

Can anyone here read tarot cards, can you answer my questions?
1. what does it mean when the majority of your cards are all one suit?
2. what is you a doing a certain spread and you have a spot for love money etc and the card that is in that place has no info about the topic
3. do you say the negative views or positive views according to whether the card is upside down or not? how does it being upside down come into it?

i do have more questions but i cant think of them right now! Any help you can give me would be fab !
Thanks.

Suggestion by naomi s
I can’t sorry

Suggestion by Where is my mind
First off, the tarot will not give you a ‘yes or no’ answer so the ‘questioner’ has to formulate the question to suit that.. So if they were interested in cash flow etc (For a beginner reader one question at a time works best) the question might be something like ‘Give me some insight into my relationship with money/cash flow etc..’ this is usually asked by the questioner while shuffling and then the answers will come through the cards depending on the spread..

For one suit to show up dominantly (again depending ‘if’ a question were asked) then the cards are bringing insight or prompts within that area..

If your just starting out out, shuffle the cards while asking the question then cut the cards and deal the top 3 as Past Present and Future, again be open minded that the cards are ‘not’ as a whole but part of the aspect of the card will highlight something important regarding your question.. This will get you use to ‘interpreting’ the meaning of the cards ‘individually’ and then as a ‘spread’ as one card next to another often changes or alters the meanings slightly.

Are there exactly (and only) one way to read tarot cards? Like for example one combination with like two cards MUST mean one thing.
Professional is there only one way. Please no answers from someone from Abrahamic religions. Thank you.
Professional is there only one way. Please no answers from someone from Abrahamic religions. Thank you.
Can I read it just from the book (Power Tarot)?
So I base on interpretation along the lines of the book? But not exactly the same?

Suggestion by Hal Roach
If there was, then there’d only be one book on the market. As it stands, there are thousands.

Suggestion by lavampdarkblade
Not at all, there are plenty of games to play with them.

Suggestion by Scarlet MacBlu
Absolutely not! The cards may have traditional meanings and associations, but these are suggestions and guides, not absolutes. The cards only mean what the reader finds within them. And it doesn’t even have to be based on the traditional meaning. For example, I had someone once ask me whether they should take piano or violin lessons. I pulled the 8 of Cups, which traditionally is associated with abandonment, but in the deck I was using, literally had a piano in the background. The answer was obvious.

Let’s take that same card and apply it to a couple other questions.
“Should I apply for a job with XYZ company?”
8 of cups – Suggests no, abandon the attempt. OR, it could mean, yes, abandon your old job and apply for a new one. OR it could mean apply for this job and then transfer to another part of the country abandoning your previous home.
“Should I stay with my boyfriend?”
8 of cups – Suggests, no, leave him. OR it could mean, yes, stay with him, move in with him and move out of your parents house.

Even with the same question, you can see there are multiple options for meanings. That’s the job of the interpretor/reader… to figure out what meanings might apply. It’s an exercise of the intuitive sense… as a reader, do I think the card indicates leaving the boyfriend or leaving the house you grew up in or leaving the country altogether? Or something else? For some readers, one card might almost always mean X, but for the next reader, that same card might carry a different association, though it may be somewhat similar in theme. The cards are tools that can be used to tap into intuitive senses or even just as brainstorming tools. For me, it’s exactly that reason, the fact that the cards can have so many different meanings, that makes them so useful as tools.

When it comes to doing your readings, if you are a beginning reader, I would highly recommend that you DON’T read from the book while you are giving readings (even to yourself). The book is there as a study guide… to familiarize yourself with the traditional or suggested meaning. In fact, there are dozens of books on card meanings and if you look through them, they’ll often have different meanings for cards, though usually a variation on the same general theme… But the point of the card isn’t to just spit out rote meanings… otherwise the meanings would be printed right on the card instead of that beautiful artwork you see.
Instead, when giving a reading, look at the image on the card. Forget about trying to remember what the book said about it and look at the picture yourself. What do you see in the picture? A piano? A walking stick? A wreath? Why does that particular object or image jump out at you? What could it possibly symbolize? What is the sense you get, the feeling the card makes you feel? What is the person on the card doing, how do they feel? What would happen if the seeker (the person receiving the reading) were to behave in a similar way as the person on the card is and would that help or hurt their matter of question? It doesn’t matter if the meaning you find isn’t the same as the one in the book… like my example with the piano. Don’ try to “memorize” the card meanings and just focus on getting a handle on HOW the cards are structured and how to LOOK at the cards… then you won’t have to remember anything because you’ll see it all in the images.

Should i get tarot cards? what kind and how much do they cost?

Should i get tarot cards? what kind and how much do they cost?
my mom was really good at tarot cards, but when she was in the middle of a reading she broke down crying and asked the person she was reading if they had been abused as a child and they got all offended and called her a witch for knowing that and so she never did it again… but i’m not afraid of the super natural and i think she had a gift. and i have intuitive dreams just like her, so i think i might be good at them =) how much do they cost and what should beginners get?

Suggestion by JON
You can get quite a few different sets. However I reccommend the Aliester Crowley set. you can get a set that you colour yourself, and a book that tells you what colour to use and what it all means.

Suggestion by pogle
Many years ago I bought a pack of TAROT cards which I felt at home with. It was the Ryder pack by A.E.Waite. In some packs the cards are too big to handle easily but this pack is just the right size. The pictures on the cards drawn by Pamela Coleman draw you into them as the story of each cards meaning is told very sucsinctly in the artwork. Although I could never find enough time to meditate on the cards they are easy to commit to memory and so they can work on a superficial level in the hands of an amateur, given time and patience used as a key to unlock your inner gift I am sure they will be a very useful tool for you. Although there is an instruction booklet with them I would get a book or two from the library. I would however stay away from the Crowley stuff he was a dangerous practical joker and very clever.

Suggestion by Dajjal Alhazred
you can get Crowley Tarot, Lovecraftian Tarot or just normal Tarot or even something more Sinister if your into the Darkness.

Are all Christians afraid of tarot cards?
Because I’m Christians and I use tarot cards. I really don’t think there anything wrong with that. And most christians said in the bible that cards will release evil spirits. That just crazy.

Suggestion by Booster
If you WERE a Believer, you WOULDN’T use them!

Better read this:

Revelation 21:8 (New International Version)
8But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Suggestion by Dionyus
What’s funny is the Torah which some of the old testament is based upon is based upon the Tarot… hehe

You won’t release evil spirits, that’s just a lie… besides an evil spirit would be something like the liquor everclear… The bible is also heavily based upon astrology and shamanism.. hehe
