Can I make up tarot card meanings?
Okay so im having trouble memorizing the card meanings, so i was wondering can i like simplify the definition to make it easier to understand? For example: Death – Rebirth or End. Just something simple like that. Is that allowed?

Bonus: If you give a list of all the Tarot Cards with simplified meaning (one or two words) I will give you best answer and 20 points!

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..

How can I become more familiar with the meanings of the 72 tarot cards?

How can I become more familiar with the meanings of the 72 tarot cards?
It’s a lot to memorize(I found a book with all the meanings, upright and reversed).
Would creating my deck first help in the memorizing process, or is it better to get to know the cards, then create them?
I’m hardly a beginning tarot reader, so any kind, helpful tips are welcome!
Thank you in advance!

Suggestion by Foiled again by those meddlesome kids.
Helpful tip: Spend your time doing something less useless.

Suggestion by synopsis
Most modern books on the Tarot are put together by publishers’ committees to exploit a gap in the market. The folk who write them usually know little or nothing about the history or uses of the cards.

A E Waite’s Pictorial Guide is one of the few reliable classic texts. If your book doesn’t at least list Waite in the bibliography, it probably isn’t worth bothering with.

The way to learn the symbols is to read anyone and everyone who will let you. Like everything else, there is no substitute for practice.

But remember that if you practise getting things wrong, you can become an expert at that too.

Suggestion by Jimbo
What do you mean ‘creating the deck’? Generally, it’s easier to remember by thinking in terms of what each number means, and what each symbol represents. The major arcana usually represent a specific person, or the person being read.
Pentacles represent earth which signify things of the material world- money, possessions.
Swords represent air, which signify thoughts.
Cups represent water which signify emotions.
And Wands represent fire which represents enthusiasm or intentions.

1, is usually the beginning of something new.
10 usually represents completion of something.
And then there’s everything in between, which I cant remember at the moment.

You can also get meanings from the pictures by understanding what the symbol is doing. The four of cups, for example, can br read a couple of ways. On one hand, it appears that he is too focused on the emotions(cups) that he has to notice that life is offering something new to him.
In another view, it can be seen that the person is serene and calm. Perhaps he realises that it is the mind, not the body that needs nourishment most.Things of the world rise and return, but the wise spirit, perfectly empty, lives unattached to things of the world, and hence, without fear.

What materials can I use for a protection circle when i am using Tarot cards?
Hi. I am a beginner in using tarot cards and I am wondering what materials I can use when doing a protection circle. Thank you!

Suggestion by Rev. Lynn D.
You don’t need any materials. Just say this prayer ” Dear Heavenly Father, I ask for the protection of your great white light around my physical body and mental arena. I ask that only that which is of the highest and best come through to me. I now open the door to my psychic power.”

Then when you are done, close the psychic door.

Suggestion by vid
You don’t need any kind of protection circle or protection anything when using Tarot cards, and those that claim you do know absolutely nothing about the cards!!!

How do I remember the meanings of Tarot Cards?
What are some methods used to remember the meanings of all 78+ Tarot Cards? Am I supposed to memorize all their meanings?

Suggestion by Jimmy C
You can buy books on the meanings

Suggestion by catluva
it may be cheating but I use a deck that has basic meanings printed on them. When I draw a card I try to figure how that relates to the person with the added information that I sense from the person.

Suggestion by Just Plain Bob
look at the symbols, feel the cards. let them tell you what they mean. What the cards say to you may not be exactly what the books say, but the what the cards say to you is more important since you’re the one reading them.

Why do tarot cards have contradictory meanings?

tarot cards

Why do tarot cards have contradictory meanings?
I bought a deck of tarot cards, but it’s confusing. It seems like each card can mean twenty different things, and some of them are at opposites. What’s the deal? Is it just a scam?

Suggestion by Beatrix
The ability to read come from the reader, not the cards.

See, a lot of people think tarot cards hold some kind of energy, are some kind of magic, yadda, yadda, yadda. They’ll think they have to “cleanse” their cards or that the cards “aren’t working” or are “mad at them” or a bunch of other stuff.

That’s not the case, though. The cards aren’t magic, and don’t hold any more energy than plastic-coated cardstock holds (which is probably none).

It’s not a scam, but the contradictory meanings ARE deliberate.

Basically, the intuition comes from the reader – the cards are just a tool to help the reader get into the right frame of mind. Any tool would work – playing cards, dice, crystal balls – but some people are just more comfortable with tarot than with other tools. When the reader is in the right frame of mind, he or she knows what the card means because the reader basically matches the right meaning with whatever he or she already subconsciously knows to be true.

Now, that said, I HAVE seen some pretty freaky card results that leave almost no room for interpretation. So I have to think that a person’s own energy can, at certain times, be an influence on how the cards end up when they are shuffled and laid out. But the cards aren’t magic.

I’m a firm believer that what we often call paranormal is only what we cannot explain YET, and that science and spirituality are not in conflict.

Suggestion by seerlights
They are open to interpretation by the reader.

Suggestion by L. E. Gant
Usually, each card has two meanings, one when right way up and one when upside down.

However, because these meanings are only symbolic, they can seem to mean many more things, depending on the scenario of the meanings, but there are still only two given meanings.

Also, the other cards in a reading can set the scenario, and hence affect the “strength” of a card with those two meanings. That’s why similar cards can mean very different things. That’s why I usually prefer a layout that has multiple cards – single card and three-card systems are too simple to convey a complete sense of what the quester wants to know.

If you are learning how to read, then the first thing to do is build up your own meaning for each card. Give yourself a picture to work from, using the basic meaning of each card. It takes a while to figure out what your own symbolism is for each card, but once you have it, and can apply it without looking up the individual cards, then you start to get a feel for how to state the “answers”.

BTW, the cards have NO magical content. They are simply pieces of cardboard with pretty pictures and numbers on them. the magic, such as it is, comes from the reader and the quester. They set up a relationship which allows the reader to apply a meaningful scenario to the reading, and it can appear to give totally different readings, despite the cards.

Do regular tarot cards work for playing French tarot games?
I want to buy a pack of tarot cards to play “jeu de tarot” but I’m not sure which ones to buy. Can I play the game with one of those divinist kind of tarot cards or are the packs different? Where can I buy the French tarot cards anyway? (Does anyone have any specific brand that they like?)

Suggestion by Scarlet MacBlu

Looks like you use a traditional deck… 78 cards which include four suits, each with 10 “pip” cards and four “court” cards (pages, knights, queens, kings) and then 22 Major Arcana cards (the Empress, Death, The Sun etc)
The tarot suits go as follows:
Swords are Spades
Wands are Clubs
Cups are Hearts
Pentacles/Disks/Coins are Diamonds

Almost any modernly produced tarot decks (the ones produced for diviners like myself) will probably do if it’s just games you want to play. A good deck if you arn’t overly concerned with divination, is the oldest known illustrations… a reproduction of the Visconti tarot available from Los Scarabeo. (these were commisioned by a renaissance italian family specifically for card games and featured gold leafing)… they have no real ‘pictures’ on the “pip” cards… just beautiful renderings of the suits in their numbers as pips. Be aware that most, if not all, modernly produced tarot decks will number the major arcana by roman numeral instead of the more familiar numbering system, so if you are worried that you won’t be able to understand the roman numeral system in reguards to the game, then you may need a specialty deck.

The most traditional deck for using for divination would be the Rider Waite tarot… but I find the artwork ugly and if you’re not a diviner, then they probably would hold little interest for you. Otherwise, just find a deck you find beautiful… if you’re going to play with cards, why not pick something where the images are appealing to you? Stick with things that claim to be based mostly on the Rider Wait system, however, otherwise you might find the names of the Major Aracana cards confusing when trying to learn the game (sometimes they change them… Death becomes “Transition” or the World becomes “The Aeon” and occasionally a card is added or dropped or the names of the court cards are shifted around etc…)
Best of luck and have fun!

How do I find my personal Major Arcana tarot cards?
I’m interested in tarot cards and have started to learn about them. I read that everyone has two personal tarot cards? One reflects their outside personality, and the other reflects their true self. I’m horrible with numbers and the directions for finding your personal Major Arcana cards in the book are confusing me. Can someone tell me how to do it? Thanks.

Suggestion by Chosen1
numerology, and since you are bad with numbers…

Suggestion by ninetymiles
I told you to look behind the toilet or under the mattress, you know, where you keep the “other” stash? Geez, why do I always have to keep track of all the things that you keep losing?

Suggestion by Ptah
I’ve been around a long time and I have never heard that anyone has two. I have heard there is always one that fits… Look through you cards and visualize whats going on in them… See what fits.. By the way the Major Arcana are pathways of the Sephira, and that card will change depending on where you are in your life.

Though, I would normally consider the High Preist as the card that best represents me, lately I have definitely been the Hermit.

Tarot Reading Interpretations

Tarot Reading Interpretations
Tarot Reading Interpretations

For anyone who is new to the realm of the Tarot cards, the mysteries attached to them seem to be the additional draw. The truth is that Tarot Card Readings actually deserve no such mysticism since they are the esoteric science that has been around for centuries. A deck of Tarot cards may be an exciting field, and quite advantageous.

Intend to get Tarot readings smoothly done? It is very important to make sense of picking out a good and gifted reader. Furthermore, the Tarot pack is able to come alive with a life. As a result, the reader we will entrust our reading to should be of reputed Psychic power. Keep in mind that there will be higher forces at play every time we consult the Tarot. Actually, there are several unexplainable reasons for us to desire to have a reading performed on a particular day. Thus, it is not necessary for us to choose to complete the Tarot consultation. Instead, the Tarot deck will call to us.

How To Interpret Tarot Readings?

In general, skillful interpretation of the Tarot reading may be an artistic, inspirational and technical feat that is built on the cards’ meanings, refracted via the prism of the layout as well as enhanced by the more advanced techniques.

Now, it is time to learn Tarot spreads and meaningsfor clarifications. Normally, the Tarot is applied to offer the reading in which a specific query will be discovered or even the questioner’s life will be generally considered. It is supposed that each card in a Tarot deck shall possess a basic set of significances and associations attached to it.

Nevertheless, interpreting the cards according to the attributions alone might be a one-dimensional and unsatisfying exercise. To give a framework which enables the more wonderful richness of meanings, it is essential for a reader to employ the following spreads here: she will lay the cards out where the position of the card in the layout can modify its interpretation.

For instance, the Nine of Cups is considered as the card of fulfilling relationships and contentment. If its appearance is in a position related to the future, then it indicates that the time of fulfillment and well-being may be on the way. On the contrary, in case this card appears in a position regarding the present dilemmas, then it can warn that complacency, taking something for stagnation may be the big issues which the questioner should stay away from.
