How do i go about giving myself a tarot reading?
I have the Rider-Waite tarot deck? And is it true that an ordinary pack of playing cards can also be used?
Oh, and it’s a reading for love. ( :

Suggestion by baronvonstrudel
Well I’d imagine that you shuffle and cut the deck, and then lay the cards out in the correct spread.

Ordinary playing cards… eh well you could I suppose substitute them for the minor arcana, but what about the major arcana?

Nice choice in deck, by the way.

Suggestion by Lady Amethyst
You can use ordinary cards, but it makes it hard if you aren’t familiar with the suites. My suggestion follow the instructional booklet.

Can anyone help me interpret a tarot reading?
I did two past, present, future readings asking about the status of a relationship.
First Reading: Past 2 of Wands, Present 5 of Wands, Future Queen of Wands.
Second Reading: Past Wheel of Fortune, Present Ace of Pentacles, Future High Priestess.

Thanks so much for your help.

Suggestion by James B
I’m picking up a major balance of power issue in this relationship. One of the people involved (the feminine one, which still could be a male, I don’t know for sure) in the past was feeling either dominated or overwhelmed by the other person, signified by both the 2 of Wands (domination and command) and the Wheel of Fortune (looking for a change in circumstances). In the present I see the struggle has lessened (the 5 of Wands) and the relationship is starting to take root and blossom (Ace of Pentacles). In the future, I’m seeing a need for both parties to speak up and communicate their true feelings to each other (High Priestess) but it definitely seems like there is a good chance that the relationship will work (Queen of Wands).

Hope this helps!

Your first reading:

2 of wands in reference to the past: a great deal of independence in your past and leading into your present as a result of the experience you have gathered throughout the years. This card tells of a wealth of resources that have been available to you as well as the self confidence and determination that all you to yield them. Considered to be a peaceful interval before you continue upon your journey. This is a card of choices and decisions as well as struggles.

5 of wands in reference to your present: this card symbolizes competition and suggest a competitive time in your life. Unfocused energies can result in conflict with others or within yourself in which both parties are equally strong and equally blind to one another. This is a trying time in your life that requires strength. However keep in mind that cooperation is the key.

Queen of Wands in reference to your future: The Queen of wands is known to be a woman of passion and intensity who can command attention. People are drawn to her as if by magic. Magnetic and willful she will inspire you to utilize your imagination and always speak the truth. You will use the advice you are given and make reasonable decisions.

Note: The suit of wands tends to generally symbolize work, ambitions, business and/or property. Seeing as your entire reading came out as such, I feel as though your inquiry was specifically directed to those aspects of your life.

Second reading:

The Wheel of fortune in reference to your past: The universal symbol for destiny and karma. The wheel represents luck and chance and perhaps a carefree or hands off attitude in your past. Suggests a major turning point and a time for advancement that requires risk taking that proceed a time of aimlessness.

Ace of pentacles in reference to your present: Symbolizes reward. Any project or situation associated with such a card is assured to be successful. Wealth in return for past efforts. Considered to be the best money card in tarot suggesting a prosperous financial situation.

The High Priestess in reference to your future: This card suggest a time of following your gut and allowing your intuition to guide the way to the right answers. The High Priestess holds a divine power to guide and protect. The card is a lucky one suggesting good things to come in time and may require patience. Go with feelings above all.

This is the best I can do without doing an actual in-person reading. I normally suggest that the person I read for think of a general question or situation for which they are seeking insight. It gives me as well as the reading a better idea of what to look for when doing the reading. Additionally, I personally suggest to do no more than one reading in a 3 month period to avoid discrepancies, so enough for now.

Hope I could help

Can I do a Tarot reading on myself?

Can I do a Tarot reading on myself?
I just bought a Waite tarot deck and book and just wanted to know if I can do a reading on myself, and if so, how would I do that? I am trying really hard to understand the book so haven’t been able to read my friends cards. She asks me everyday if I could try, but I want to use a little cards as possible and also need to know which cards and what is the least amount of cards I can use to do a reading for her?

Suggestion by hannah
well, you will be able to pick up a random card as well as anyone, so is say YES.

Suggestion by Fireball
no its worthless but tarot.com is there for free stuff if youre determined…REMEMBER JESUS SAVES.

Suggestion by escritoramx
That one you selected is one of the hardest. There are others that are easier to interpret. Anyhow why don’t you get one that will interpret the cards for you? I have one in my computer and when I want a reading it gives it to me. The graphics are fantastic. It uses the cards you have.

When you do a tarot reading, who do the cards face?
If you do a reading for someone else do the card face you or them?

Suggestion by Ashley D
they face you, obviously, since your the one reading them, you have to be able to look at them easily in order to interpret them quickly and accurately

Suggestion by Andi
well one thing that you will notice with tarot cards is that whatever you do, is your own personal way of doing it, and it’s usually whatever makes you comfortable.
you may have it facing you since you are the one reading it, or choose to have it facing the person whom the reading is for so that they can see their results.
i usually have it facing the person since i want them to be as much a part of the process as they can. i like to ask them what they think the symbols mean, along with my interpretation.

Suggestion by James B
Well there really is no right or wrong way, since it is all a matter of personal taste and what feels right to you, but typically they should be facing the reader as to make it easier to interpret the cards.

I’m kind of self promoting here, sorry- but I wanted to share my new, smaller Silent Tarot deck, since you guys have been with me the whole way through the creative process. Today, I thought I’d do a tarot reading for you- Keep in mind I am not an expert, and I don’t believe in magical fortune telling- but I do think these cards can help you think about your past, present and future and reflect on your decisions. Anyway, enjoy! you can buy the deck here: www.etsy.com
