How do I memorize the meanings of cards in my Tarot deck?
I’m trying to learn how to do Tarot card readings but I find it challenging to memorize their meanings. Any tricks or hints?
Suggestion by Chris Ancor
Just do it. Even though it is a waste of time.
Suggestion by Praire Crone
Concentrate on one card at a time. Maybe do one card per day or something like that. Then work with them in groups of no more than two or three for a while until you feel comfortable working with them in the more complicated lay outs. Good luck. I love my tarot cards and collect specialized decks.

You can see the meaning in the symbolism.
what is the cloth called you read tarot cards on?
I’m selling an old (1986) set of tarot cards on ebay and it has a black cloth with 10 places for cards to go. What is the name of this cloth? Anything else I should use to describe it?
Suggestion by Khalin ElvenStone
Diklo = a Gypsy man’s neckerchief, often made of brightly-colored silk, sometimes worn as a bandana
Suggestion by Boudica
Really, there is no “special” cloth for tarot cards. It is probably something someone made as a teaching tool, and nothing more.
Sorry. You got nothing more than a fancy table cloth.
Suggestion by Naomi
It is usually just called a tarot cloth. You should describe the style it is in (e.g. Rider-Waite). There are different traditions/styles of pictures and it would be useful to know what it is modelled after. Also, make sure that they are tarot cards and not oracle or gypsy cards. 🙂 It won’t take much research to find out the style…just check out a site that sells cards and look at some designs.
Are angel oracle cards the same as tarot cards?
I heard tarot cards are apart of the occult, but what about angel guidance cards, are these part of the occult aswell?

“Occult” just means “hidden knowledge”… it means that it is mysteries that can’t be fully explained in words and need to be discovered by contemplation and experience. It’s not dangerous or scary.
Angel oracle cards are similar to other “oracle” decks… an oracle deck is different then tarot decks in that they consist of irregular numbers of cards and don’t corrospond to an established system of suits. Tarot decks are all created around the same format of 78 cards (22 “major arcana” and four additional numbered suits). Oracle decks usually have any number of cards from just a few to hundreds and each follows their own unique system.
Oracle cards, like tarot cards, can be used for divination (guessing the future or making prophesies) or for brainstorming etc. Oracles and prophets have long been sought out by people of all religions and walks of life.

First of all, occult in not a bad word and Tarot Cards are not to be feared. They have helped many people with problems to find a better path.
Angel cards or any other cards of this type are the same. The bring the same result in a slightly different way. They are nothing to be afraid of either.
