What’s the best set of tarot cards?
I’m looking for a book for beginners on tarot cards and for a set of tarot cards. Does anyone know where I could get something decent (preferably from the internet)?

Ones that have burned up in a fire. For those that use them go to hell.

Suggestion by roy
I’d get rid of them my friend. It’s playing with demons.

Suggestion by Avery Blaise
Dude I would stop with tarot cards if I were you. There is no best set of cards that come from the devil. The best can only be worst. Stop while you can.

Can i use tarot cards that have been owned by someone else before me? (Secondhand from friend) Thanks!?
An older friend of the family used to read tarot cards but she doesn’t anymore, someone told me that tarot cards should be a gift but can i use her old ones to start reading with or do i need to purchance a new pack? Help please.

Suggestion by ptolomy
yes..some say the best cards are given to you, not bought. I bought mine and they are great…

Try them out for yourself and see.

Suggestion by biddix1
To play with the tarot cards there is no problem. If you are a believer, then there can be issues.

First, you must have permission of the person who used to use them. Without that, nothing will come from your readings but darkness. Second, you should cleanse & sanctify the cards. Salt, crystals, etc. See your local shop that would supply such things as the tarot cards & they will have what is needed on hand. Third, you need to orient the cards to yourself through meditation and request their help in divining the future. Without the decks’ assistance & willingness, again, nothing will come but darkness. Blessed be.

Suggestion by Lillith
Use them, enjoy them!
There are no ‘rules’ about having to only use a deck given to you. There are no ‘rules’ about letting someone else touch your cards.
There are no rules, what & how you do with tarot is of your own design. DO what you feel is right and good.
We all have our own way of handling and reading cards.

How to experience more with Tarot Cards since I’m a beginner?
I am not very experienced with each Tarot card since I have only read a Tarot Reading book for beginners. That’s why I feel a bit confused reading for anyone else.
How should I practice reading to understand a card’s meaning deeper for each situation? How did you start it?
Thanks everyone.
I’m 20 and very serious about exploring the mystic world, I don’t want to take Tarot reading as a job, I would only do the reading if someone really needs it and I would never charge so to collect their info and to pretend to understand the cards is not my reference. thanx LD anyways.

Suggestion by lithiumdeuteride
The art of Tarot reading involves the skill known as “cold-reading”. It involves fishing for information by paying close attention to everything the victim says, and asking vague questions to try to get the victim to reveal facts about their life. This can be done before or during the Tarot reading.

Once enough information is known, the Tarot practitioner simply invents meanings for each card that comes up, and tailors the meanings to the information they’ve gained from the victim. This is why you will see Tarot practitioners flipping over cards like Death and explaining that it does not mean the victim is going to die, but instead has more than one meaning. If you’re vague enough about what the cards are ‘predicting’, you can never be wrong.

In short, the victim gets what they wanted to hear, and the Tarot practitioner gets their money. It’s a simple con job.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but that’s what Tarot cards are used for. You cannot tell the future with pieces of cardboard with ink on them. You can, however, trick people out of their money.

Suggestion by Eclectic_N
lithiumdeuteride (LD)’s answer has some merit, but may not be particularly helpful for a beginner like yourself.

Tarot cards are one of many non-chemical methods of altering the way we perceive reality and possibility. If a person needs to break free of limited perceptions and explore a greater range of internal and external options, these techniques can be useful.

Focusing on the ‘textbook’ meanings of cards, though (as LD suggests), is probably not as effective as attuning yourself to your own intuition around the images. A very skilled reader of my acquaintance will introduce a card by simply describing the image and their own personal interpretation of it, implicitly inviting the subject to explore its meaning for themselves.

You might try doing your own self-readings, as a way of ‘getting to know’ the cards (and your own feelings about them), then expand the scenario to include someone else almost as a ‘co-reader’. The reading is an intimate act and requires great sensitivity, if not extra-sensory perception, so it will stretch your abilities.

Many (if not most) people seeking tarot readings are not as naive as LD assumes, and they do not attribute mystical powers to the cards. The reader provides an opportunity to see the world through new eyes, emphasizing intuition and creativity. The process allows us to remove our hyper-rational blinders and see things we may be in the habit of avoiding.

Is anyone good with Tarot Cards?

Is anyone good with Tarot Cards?
I found a deck of french tarot cards but I don’t know what they say or mean. I’m guessing the meaning is the same regardless of the language but I’m wondering if anyone knows where I can find a good resource to use to look it up. Thanks!

Suggestion by Jenny
The card meanings are the same regardless of the language. Usually cards have a number on them to indicate which card it is so that should be able to help you decipher. Also, for the suit cards you’ll always find the “number” in the picture on the card – if it’s the 3 of cups there will be 3 cups in the picture.

For more detail you can visit tarotbyuri.com and that site might be able to help with card meanings.

Drew the death card what does it mean?
Found some tarot cards in my grandparents house and I don’t know much about them. I figured I would just ask a question in my mind, cut the deck and whatever card I got would be my answer. the problem is that I don’t know what the cards mean, and the death card keeps popping up. It doesn’t actually mean death does it?

Suggestion by LabGrrl
The historical meaning of the death card is change, or if you prefer, transition.

Suggestion by MSB
The death card means transition. Change.

Suggestion by Will D
They’re cards man. Whatever is going on in life or whatever you’re thinking or feeling doesn’t change the order of what you just stacked.

How can I find out about my past lives?
I am wanting to learn about who i was in another life. I keep having this nagging feeling that something i am going through now and strange fears could be explained by this. Also, is there any relation to “spirits” as in being a medium and talking to the dead, and tarot cards? thanks 🙂

Suggestion by Lance
waste of time. If you think about it, past lives are absurd and impossible. Reports of “proof” of past lives fall to pieces when the “reports” are carefully examined. Further, on what possible biological basis could one retain memory?

This is all more religious woo-woo.

PS: the post below about the Buddha is laughable BS. Don’t believe a word of it.

Suggestion by Atheism Fails Again
An old Brahman priest asked Buddha: “What should we do [to be saved]?

The Buddha answered, “….look for another Holy One who will come and help the world and all of you in the future.”

Then the Brahman priest asked, “What will the characteristics of the Holy One be like?”

The Buddha answered him, “The Holy one who will keep the world in the future will be like this: In the palm of his hands and in the flat of his feet will be the design of a disk, in his side will be a stab wound; and his forehead will have many marks like scars. The Holy One will be the golden boat who will carry you over the cycle of rebirths all the way to the highest heaven [Nirvana]. Do not look for salvation in the old way [trying to merit salvation]; there is no salvation in it for sure. Quit the old way, and there will be a new spirit like the light of a lightening bug which will come down from the sky above to live in all of your hearts, and you will be victorious over all of your enemies. Nobody will be able to destroy you. If you die, you will not come back to be born in this world again. You will go to the highest heaven [Nirvana].

Does any one else pick up messages from TAROT cards?

Does any one else pick up messages from TAROT cards?
Hi I pick up “messages” from tarot cards, I’m very opened minded, and can pick up messages within messages etc.

Does any one else have the same gift? And can you explain?

Please only answer if you have used tarot cards, if not I will report you.

Suggestion by dWali
Nope, I have never picked up a message from Tarot cards. I have never used Tarot cards. Will you report me now?

Suggestion by believer_in_jesus37421
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).


Suggestion by Tarot By Misha
Let try to explain as I myself do know what you are talking about since it happens to me.
Like learning an instrument with practice and over time you improve. It’s the same with tarot readings. Also everyone has different psychic abilities and for some they start with tarot but then over time the tarot just ends up a crutch. Meaning their own natural psychic abilities are so strong that the cards are not needed but they are habit.
For others in order to turn the abilities on and off they need the cards. The cards kind of act like the light switch. When they are using them the switch is on, when they are put away it goes off.

How can I go about publishing tarot cards?
I’m still working on the details here: (furry-card-movement.deviantart.com)

I am an anthro artist who is finding other talented artists to create a way to donate for a cause (which cause is still unknown) and we were going to make a deck of tarot cards and sell them at conventions and online. Is there a publishing company that could help us create the cards/boxes? And how much would it be?

Suggestion by Gene
If you’re really serious about this enterprise, I wish you all the best. Creating a (good) tarot deck is a hard feat – making art for all 72 individual unique cards, making sure they’re all meaningful and stylistically cohesive, etc. is a big challenge. I can think of one company who publishes a lot of New Age material, including many many books on the Tarot – Llewelyn. They migt be especially useful to look into because they have lower standards than other tarot publishers, as some of the tarot books they’ve published aren’t very good, so even if your deck isn’t strictly perfect it still has a chance.

Otherwise, I’d suggest you go surfing around the art world for others who have done something similar to what you want to achieve – created a themed tarot deck of their own. I know of at least one on deviantart – Ellygator created a fabulous Harry Potter tarot deck and got it published. If you want to see it, or contact her, here’s the link to her gallery: http://ellygator.deviantart.com/gallery/#HP-Tarot

Just search a bit, I’m sure that there are plenty out there who’ve done it and who would be happy to share some advice with you about how you can make your vision come to life.

Can someone help me with these tarot cards?
I am learning to read tarot cards, but I always have trouble with the court cards. They are frustrating for me and I always have trouble interpreting them. Do they ALWAYS represent real people? Any insight, advice, tips, or explanations would be very helpful! I am using a Rider-Waite deck if that makes any difference.

Suggestion by Willow Moon
You should of gotten a beginners deck, try the gypsy tarot deck.

Suggestion by FlyMeAPenguin
They usually don’t represent “real” people. Mostly, if you (or someone else) gets a court card in their reading, the qualities the specific court card represents could be trying to emerge in you (or whoever you’re reading). Go with you intuition though, if you feel it could represent a specific person, such as a family member, friend, etc, it could.

Suggestion by jjt
the majority of the time yes but it depends on the cards next to them in combinations that will tell you what they mean. it does take a long time to master. so you should take classes

How can I learn to read tarot cards?
Can someone please explain to me how to read tarot cards? Or at least give me a site to help? Also, is it possible to use a regular deck of playing cards if you know what each of the cards mean? I’ve heard of people doing this and don’t know if it’s possible, and if so how?

What do you guys think about tarot cards?
Long story short a friend of a friend came over to my apartment with some tarot cards and what he basicly told me was I had no future in playing the bass guitar. Should I listen to him?

Suggestion by Graham
To be honest buddy, I really wouldnt trust what a couple of plastic cards suggest. I would prefer to use the good old magic 8-ball. At least that gives yes or no answers majority of the time

Suggestion by paintingj
I would not listen to him.

I think he might just be playing a joke on you. I do not think the Tarot cards can tell your specific future. They can guide you and bring to a better understanding of your situation.

Suggestion by Kira
It depends on whether or not your friend can actually read them, first of all. Lots of people can remember the meanings of the cards, and go through the motions but they may not have the spiritual ability to use them to predict the future. Yes, tarot cards can be used to answer specific questions, but sometimes the person can misinterpret the meaning. If the bass guitar is something that is a big part of your life, don’t give it up because of what could have been read wrong. You should never make any life changing decisions based on a tarot reading unless you are extremely confident in that person’s abilities and the meaning is extremely clear and can’t be read another way. Keep playing, and good luck if you’re trying to make it your future. 🙂

I want to make an artwork of each tarot card and the symbols it needs in it.. but in my own eyes and own interpretations of them. I am a good artist and I know how I will go about this on my own, but I was wondering if anyone who has done this or even if they havent, would have some insight and more ideas to this. Thank yall

I have seen blank tarot decks available for purchase from somewhere before… It was a full deck (78 cards) with a pretty background on the reverse side. All the cards are blank, so you can create it yourself.

I’m not psychic but I have had tons of readings. The most accurate one that I got where names were even pulled out of the blue was a tarot card reading from http://www.witchcraft-magic-spells.com. The head witch there is amazingly talented and has helped me through a lot. Good luck!
