If a tarot card gets bent, is it okay to remove it from the deck?
I closed my taro box, and reopened it the next day – only to find that the card was bent. It’s a card that stands for pride in ones work, a skilled craftsman. In reverse, it means laziness and carelessness. It’s accurate for my carelessness with the box – but is it okay to remove it from the deck completely?

Suggestion by Francesca Parie
No. Also you shouldn’t be storing them in a box you should have a silk bag for them.

Suggestion by jotunrunner
only if you use them for three card monte

Suggestion by mega-moma
You need the entire deck for accuracy. You wouldn’t play solitary or rummy without the long of diamonds would you?

Just picked up the Death card in my tarot reading and need advice?
I was being stupid with my friend with tarot cards and I picked six cards and it was all going fine till I picked up the last one. It was the death card and now i’ve scared myself so much! Does it mean physical death or a transformation in my life like what some people say? Need help! 🙁

Suggestion by Berry
The death card represents the ending of one phase of your life and a transformation into something new. It does NOT mean physical death!

Suggestion by ZiZZGleR
It’s all fake it doesn’t work u have nothin to worry about

Suggestion by Anders Lindegaard
I heard that it means a change. Not exactly a death but a new beginning in you life.

Cheaper tarot card decks in NYC?
I want to buy a deck of tarot cards and a good decent book to help me read them. I dont want a cheap little thin book. I want something thats understandable. If anyone can reccomend a good deck or set for Aquarians or stores I’d appreciate it.
What deck do you prefer and how do you consult the cards? Thanks.
I’m a teen looking for my first deck. Something I can call my own. Connect to. Anything like Barnes and Nobles is fine.

Suggestion by Midnyte
No one can find a perfect deck for you. Different people have different likes/dislikes. You should look for a deck which you feel comfortable with.

My suggestions:
1. There are decks that would be easier for beginners to use. Like Rider-Waite decks. Plus you can find a lot of books published based on these decks.
2. There are a lot of different decks based on different belief systems, like pagan, christian, eastern thought, etc. Different themes, like fantasy, nature, manga, astrology, history, even books.
3. Browse through Aeclectic.net. Look at pictures, see what you like and what you might connect with. Or you might go to your local metaphysical bookstore, sometimes they have of a lot of demo decks for you to actually touch and feel.
4. As far as a good decent book, I like “Complete Tarot Reader” by Teresa Michelsen. It is a self-study tarot book, which will help you to develop your personal tarot relationship, not just give you basic meanings of the cards. Plus you can use this book with any deck you purchased.
5. Do not believe in “bad luck to buy a 1st deck”.
6. Your mentioning of your age means that you can’t order nothing online? Because online stores can provide you with much better selection than Barnes and Nobles. In my opinion selection there is poor and tarot decks sets are expensive. If you do have an opportunity to buy online, I suggest that after you made your choice of the deck, try to look for it at http://www.betterworldbooks.com/ I do suggest to buy a new (not used) deck and you might be able to find it there way cheaper than in the bookstore, plus US shipping is free.

My personal preferences are Tarot of Dreams (gorgeous deck), Robin Wood tarot, Osho-Zen tarot. I do own a lot more, which I use based on the reading I am doing.

And different people read tarot in different ways. Get your deck and try to find your own.

Good luck.

Suggestion by Rev. Lynn D.
That is a really hard question to answer. There are hundreds of decks and as many books on the subject. I use the “Mythic Tarot” which is based on Greek Mythology. It has good artwork and comes with a book and cloth to put your spread on. The book is very mythology based though and I needed other books along with it.

I used several books when learning and found that each one gave me a slightly different slant on things and I would recommend using more than one book. Some stressed the love aspects of all the cards and others did not for example.

Barnes and Noble is good and also New Age Bookstores which will have a much larger selection and have people that can help you if you are new at this.

How do you read a tarot card if it’s a positive card that is drawn for the problems & oppositions place?

How do you read a tarot card if it’s a positive card that is drawn for the problems & oppositions place?
I drew the 4 of wands in the upright position as a problem. The entire spread was positive and then the outcome card was negative, the 5 of wands. How are you supposed to read that?

Suggestion by treebard
this is where the indicator card could give you some guidance

Suggestion by SadharaSatguru
Hello RG

The 5 of Wands isn’t a negative card. It is hard to interpret what they may mean without seeing the whole layout.

The cards, the question as well as the cards layout positions?

You can post your tarot layouts in the forum below for others to look at & discuss.

Is it safe to make your own tarot cards?
I thought they’d be even more accurate if the user is the person who made them, just because the cards would be brought in by your energy initially.

Suggestion by Very Soon
Nothing in the occult is safe.
You want to be safe, be in Gods will for your life.

Suggestion by MissDementia
You could get a paper cut, so be sure to wear gloves. Safety first, ya know.

Suggestion by Old man
No, you might cut yourself with the scissors

Tarot readers, have you ever found yourself repelled by a tarot deck?
My friend’s daughter gave me a deck of tarot cards, and they give me the creeps. I’ve had hundreds of decks in my life and have never had one make me feel uneasy with them. Since its a gift deck, I don’t feel right giving them back, but I don’t know if I want to use them or not. Ideas on what to do with them? Can they be “cleaned”? I don’t normally do that, but I guess I could.

What would cause this reaction?

Suggestion by Eostre
Oh yes, my ex boyfriends “Thoth” deck not only grossed me out completely, but I felt icky for ages afterwards.
What normally causes the reaction is the previous owner using them disrespectfully, or just having really rotten energy. If you’ve been given them as a gift (and you probably don’t want them creeping you out just lying around the place), you can get them cleaned.
If you’ve got some white sage lying around, just light some and pass the cards one by one through the smoke (not the fire, tempting as it may be!!). Some people recommend saying a prayer of consecration/blessing at the same time, but I can’t quite take myself that seriously 🙂
White sage on its own tends to do the trick.

Wrap the deck up in cloth (again, some will say it has to be black silk or satin, I’ve found any material works just as well) and put it aside for a day or two. When you pick it up again, just spend some time shuffling and loking at the cards, getting a feel for them.
Good luck!

(And if all else fails, a proper cleansing in the fireplace should work great! Just say that the dog ate them..)

What kinds of questions can you ask in a tarot card reading?

What kinds of questions can you ask in a tarot card reading?
I am going for a reading next week but I am not sure what I can ask or how to ask for information. What I really want to know is if I will become pregnant anytime in the near future but how do I ask this without it being a yes or no question?

Suggestion by lisa lee
I would not bother with tarot card readings. The way to get pregnant is by having unprotected sex not by having your cards read. Stay away from psychics and the like, its a wrong road to take in your life x

Suggestion by Z
Well, tarot cards are to be taken VERY seriously and to ask it in another way maybe “If I have unprotected sex soon will anything happen?” You have to act as if you plan to have unprotected sex and just go with it.

Suggestion by Galactic Emperor
The tarot (also known as tarocchi, tarock or similar names) is typically a set of seventy-eight cards, composed of twenty-one trump cards, one Fool, and four suits of fourteen cards each—ten pip and four face cards (one more face card per suit than in Anglo-American playing cards).

Tarot cards are used throughout much of Europe to play Tarot card games such as Italian Tarocchini and French Tarot. In English-speaking countries, where the games are largely unknown, Tarot cards are utilized primarily for divinatory purposes, with the trump cards plus the Fool card making up the twenty-two major arcana cards and the pip and four face cards the fifty-six minor arcana. The terms Major Arcana and Minor Arcana are used in occult tarot and are seldom used by card players. The divinatory meanings of the cards are derived mostly from the Kabbalah of Jewish mysticism and from Medieval Alchemy.

what is the difference between a physic reading and a tarot card reading?
what is the difference between a physic reading and a tarot card reading ? Which is better choice ?
or a palm reader ?

Suggestion by POONEY
A crystal ball and a deck of cards. Tarot cards seems better.

Suggestion by “A”
In one the extra sensory perception comes from a deck of cards, the other the perception comes from the person.

Both are a waste of time.

Suggestion by LiveReadings
Tarot readers rely on intuition, skill, experience and the symbols of the tarot cards. Psychic’s listen to voices and often can contact spirits from beyond.

Personally I have found tarot readings to me more accurate. I explain the difference here at these blog posts:

Is it bad to get nothing but pentacles and swords in my tarot card reading?
I had more cards pop up like strength, the sun, Justice and I think I may have gotten the empress; however, every other card that popped up were pentacles and sword cards. Can someone tell me what this means?

Suggestion by DaniNyko the Deinonychus
That your deck is random and not Fixed/rigged

Suggestion by Larry G
Much depends on what question or issue the reading was for, AND what the layout was. Generally, swords refers to beliefs and opinions, while pentacles are for education, culture, and such.

Perhaps this means to quit offering unfounded opinions and get some real education to base your beliefs on. Or, it could mean that you are passionate about teaching, justice, or righteous living.

Suggestion by *SDA 4 CHRIST* Romans 10:9
Tarot is satanic. Trust God.
