If you spill coffee on tarot cards, should you just replace them if some are quite damaged?
I spilt coffee on some of my tarot cards, and a few got quite damaged when I was trying to peel them apart to let them dry- are they useless now?

Suggestion by bobman
I’d chuck the lot in the trash and get a life.

Suggestion by ?
If they end up warped, or with peeling, then, yeah, as they won’t shuffle very well anymore… best to just get a new deck.

Suggestion by Miss 6
If they’re very damaged then yes get a new deck. I unfortunately had an ex boyfriend rip my cards in half out of anger so I had to replace the deck I had since I was a kid 🙁

Meaning of upright Empress and reversed Emperor Tarot cards in a Celtic Cross Reading?
Some other cards:
King of Swords
Ace of Pentacles
Knight of Cups
Nine of Cups Reversed
Page of Swords
2 of Wands reversed as Outcome

This is a love tarot reading. The King of Swords I think represents the guy I am asking about as he is a military man.

New at tarot and looking forward to learning from this!

Suggestion by Ania
the headings for these cards are important. also the question asked to them…..without all that, it is not possible to understand what they are saying. empress is the “apple of his eyes” and she is the woman who can be taken home. it can also describe a rich beautiful relationship. but when it fell in outcome position i found it hinting beginning that includes frustration. reversed emperor hints broken relationship or taking a break…it can also signal the man not there.

2 of wands reversed means loss of interest. but do not take it in a bad sense. it is not always a bad card to receive in relationship reading.

tarot cards tend to predict things that will happen in the future. are these predictions true?
I’m getting paranoid every time i let a tarot card reader do his job and predict things about my future. All i do is go back to the fact that our destiny is the result of the decisions we make, and maybe tarot cards are just hasty generalizations of what are currently happening. help?

Suggestion by lala
You are doing some anxiety ; so why are you going back for a reading ??? To be more anxious than ever ; command girl ; get a grip on your life

Suggestion by Rev. Lynn D.
You’re close. Tarot cards predict what will happen if current situations remain the same. Your free will and choices can change almost all things seen in a reading.

And that is the whole idea. If you receive information about something and don’t want it to happen, you have the opportunity to try and change it. If you are told by spirit that the way you are doing things is the reason you are having problems, you can change that too.

On the other hand, it can reveal unfaithful spouses, dishonest friends, and advise on whether staying in a job is a good idea.

It is not intended to tell you how to live or that anything is carved in stone. This is for guidance only.

What should I do with my Dead mother tarot cards?

tarot cards

What should I do with my Dead mother tarot cards?
My mother died last year and she had her cards put in storage at her parents house (my grandparents) I took her cards not sure what to do with them. She didn’t gift them to me but I am pretty sure she was going to. They are about 40 years old. So what should I do with them can I use them or should I burn them not really sure I don’t want to make bad fortune for myself.

Please Be serious in your answers thanks.

Suggestion by Karl P
Seriously,, burn them!!

Suggestion by Snowie

Suggestion by Emily H
They were your mother’s. Cherish them. If you don’t feel comfortable using them (they can’t hurt you – they’re used for divination, not for making things happen), then don’t.

Do you actually think having them in your possession is going to cause you harm? They are objects.

What do you think of tarot cards?
Just wanted to know some opinions on tarot cards. Do you think their evil or do you think that they can help show insights into ppl’s lives?

Suggestion by worlds most humble person

Suggestion by snap144
They are evil….those people team up with satan and his evil angels.

Suggestion by ANOTHER BAD BADGER!!!
I think very little of them, meaning I devote very little thought to them.

whats a good set of tarot cards for a beginner?
id like a true tarot card set with the book… any recs? ive seen so many with designs etc… i like the fantasy looking ones(elves, faries, etc) i just dont know what is a good one to start with.

someone said a true set has a certain amount of cards?

is anyone could post a link to some sets it would be very helpful, thank you.

Suggestion by Unsinkable Camille
Abominable PracticesDeuteronomy 18: 10 – 12 outlines very specifically a number of different kinds of false prophets. God speaks very clearly about His regard for them as well. “There shall not be found among you anyone… who practices witchcraft (the use of magic), or a soothsayer (a diviner), or one who interprets omens (someone who reads signs), or a sorcerer (a magician or wizard), or one who conjures spells, or a medium (a person claiming to be in contact with spirits of the dead), or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.”

Astrology Forbidden to ChristiansFortune telling and astrology are lumped together with other forbidden practices as sorcery and are abominable to God. Christians must not participate in these practices. The Bible is clear. Those who continue doing these things, will find themselves left out of God’s kingdom. “Outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.” See also Revelation 21:8 and Galatians 5: 19 – 21.

Suggestion by jjt
the best set to get started with is the rider waite deck,

Suggestion by Meowbz
i think the crowley tarot is by far the most visually interesting and faithful to the spirit of tarot than any other. it was painted by a woman, frieda harris, when she was past 60 years old, under the direct instruction of a man who had devoted his life to understanding the mythic dimension of reality.

as well as an advanced book by crowley himself, there are many books by other practitioners for the beginner, which will provide you with as much material as you are willing to deal with.

don’t worry about what christians say. they are BDSM spirits in disguise.


Should i get tarot cards? what kind and how much do they cost?

Should i get tarot cards? what kind and how much do they cost?
my mom was really good at tarot cards, but when she was in the middle of a reading she broke down crying and asked the person she was reading if they had been abused as a child and they got all offended and called her a witch for knowing that and so she never did it again… but i’m not afraid of the super natural and i think she had a gift. and i have intuitive dreams just like her, so i think i might be good at them =) how much do they cost and what should beginners get?

Suggestion by JON
You can get quite a few different sets. However I reccommend the Aliester Crowley set. you can get a set that you colour yourself, and a book that tells you what colour to use and what it all means.

Suggestion by pogle
Many years ago I bought a pack of TAROT cards which I felt at home with. It was the Ryder pack by A.E.Waite. In some packs the cards are too big to handle easily but this pack is just the right size. The pictures on the cards drawn by Pamela Coleman draw you into them as the story of each cards meaning is told very sucsinctly in the artwork. Although I could never find enough time to meditate on the cards they are easy to commit to memory and so they can work on a superficial level in the hands of an amateur, given time and patience used as a key to unlock your inner gift I am sure they will be a very useful tool for you. Although there is an instruction booklet with them I would get a book or two from the library. I would however stay away from the Crowley stuff he was a dangerous practical joker and very clever.

Suggestion by Dajjal Alhazred
you can get Crowley Tarot, Lovecraftian Tarot or just normal Tarot or even something more Sinister if your into the Darkness.

Is there any truth to the Tarot cards?
I’ve often wonder if there was any truth to the tarot card readings. Is it a bunch of crap? How do you know if the person giving you the readings is telling the truth?

Suggestion by Harpo!

Suggestion by The_Messenger
They can work and tell you a lot of things. The problem is the power behind it. Stay far away from those things and trust in God.

Are all Christians afraid of tarot cards?
Because I’m Christians and I use tarot cards. I really don’t think there anything wrong with that. And most christians said in the bible that cards will release evil spirits. That just crazy.

Suggestion by Booster
If you WERE a Believer, you WOULDN’T use them!

Better read this:

Revelation 21:8 (New International Version)
8But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Suggestion by Dionyus
What’s funny is the Torah which some of the old testament is based upon is based upon the Tarot… hehe

You won’t release evil spirits, that’s just a lie… besides an evil spirit would be something like the liquor everclear… The bible is also heavily based upon astrology and shamanism.. hehe

Should Tarot cards be sold in the USA for playing actual card games?

tarot cards

Should Tarot cards be sold in the USA for playing actual card games?
In European countries such as France, there are Tarot cards sold to play actual card games similar to Spades and Bridge. According to most historians, Tarot cards were originally intended for card games and not for divination. However in countries such as the US, Tarot cards are only sold for fortune telling purposes and most Americans only associate Tarot with divination. Do you believe this situation should change? Would you play actual card games with Tarot? Should Tarot publishers supply game rules with Tarot decks?

Suggestion by dragonlady
I use tarot cards for divination and I don’t think they should be used for a game. Tarot cards have a different energy than regular playing cards do and it wouldn’t be a good idea. Tarot cards today are different than Tarot cards in history, they like everything else have evolved.

Suggestion by Lykaios
I agree, tarot cards are not for game play. They have a purpose and any use outside that purpose will foul them for their intended use. Other than when you are told by the reader to shuffle/cut/select the cards no one but the reader(owner) of the deck should handle them as this will allow them to absorb energies from outside sources and make it hard on the owner to get a proper reading from them.

Suggestion by Lillith
As a tarot reader, I would love to have instructions for the game Tarocci (sp?). I love to play cards, in any shape or form.
Any cards, anything as that goes, can be used for divination.
Situation change? well, add instructions for the game, but don’t exclude the divination use of the cards.

How can i start using tarot cards?
I’ve recently started to get interested in tarot cards, but honestly i dont know where to get started and i have many questions.
1.are tarot cards “evil” in any way?
2.where can i learn how to use them and buy a deck
3.is there anything i should know before i look further into this interest?

Suggestion by natasha
Tarot cards are not evil at all. They are a tool to help in a psychic reading. They can help you strengthen your gift because the cards never lie. Meaning that the are highly accurate. You can buy some from a metaphysical shop or a book store like Barnes and Nobel. When you get your cards you should be the only one who touch them. Only your energy needs to be on the cards. You can use them on family and friends to practice. When I brought my first deck I slept with them under my pillow at night. That helps seal your energy in your cards to get an accurate reading. Tarot cards are not toys or a game. They are tools of deviation. Just have a clear mind and be serious about this art. You will be fine.

Suggestion by ChainLightninG⅜
It is bliss to buy psychic ability!

I’ve been to a place that prints these cards, the company I work for sells playing cards wholesale. Not all of them of course because there are many styles of decks. They have do some impressive artwork, and there is one that goes along with the vampire craze.

So what make them so special compared to other printed items? Is it the cardboard? The inks? Both? Well I’ll tell you a true story.

The cardboard comes from trees from a secret magic forest in Austria. During WW2 none of this wood got to the USA, as the Nazis used it themselves. But what they lacked was quality ink and Hitler’s people had poor results. The best magic ink is made in the USA and trades on the market at about $ 133.00 per gallon. That is why the cards cost so much. Also there is a lot of quality control. The cards get tested by groups of elves to make sure that when used, randomness is not an issue.

Unless they are printed in China. They use plain cardboard and regular inks. These will result in random spreads every time. So buy American and spend lots of money on lots of decks. And don’t forget the velvet pouches to store them. Spend more money.

Suggestion by George
I created a section on my web site for exactly this.
I wrote a series of articles on how to learn to interpret Tarot cards here:

Then I added an online virtual Tarot deck to allow people to do Tarot without owning cards.
I’ve found that it is just as valid and accurate as using real cards.
It’s really good for learning and practising spreads and has interactive help with the card meanings.

The “magic” of Tarot is in you, not in those pieces of cardboard!

The online Tarot deck can be found here:

How do you cleanse tarot cards without using water?
I’ve been looking for a cleansing and blessing ritual for a deck of tarot cards, and I’ve noticed that a lot of the better, more ornate ones suggest that you cleanse the cards with water. How would you be able to do this since the cards ARE paper and water tends to damage paper goods? Just something I’ve always wondered about.

Suggestion by Abomination of Desolation
All decks of cards produced in the last 50 or so years have a thin layer of wax or plastic on them. Unless you are dousing them, it won’t actually affect them.

Suggestion by Jesus loves Commies
Smoke marijuana in a bong and blow the pot smoke that has been through the water onto the cards

How about just burn them and take charge of your life?

how, should I start my story?

free angel card reading

how, should I start my story?
i have an idea for writing a book but i don’t know how to start it. can you guys give me a little help?

here’s my idea basically, it will be set in Detroit, MI which is the 4th most crime ridden city in the U.S. and i kinda like the idea of it being told through the main character’s perspective sort of like the show Dexter the main character starts out as like this really depressed cop who’s really devoted to his job and his wife whom he loved very much left him because he was getting high (i was thinking like cocaine and LSD or something like that) and drunk a lot and not the nice drunk. around the same time that his wife leaves him at work the department start tracking a serial killer who kills only criminals which he finds intriguing. as the story progresses the main character seems to be losing his grip on reality (paranoid thoughts about co-workers, delusions/hallucinations) this will be connected to his drug use and he will also be fired or suspended, or forced to take a leave of absence (haven’t decided yet) because of it but by this time he has become obsessed with the case so he steals the copy of the case files that were given to him before hand then starts working on it on his own. as the story progresses further he find that he and the killer have similar psychological patterns but refuses to believe that he is the killer but as the case unfolds more and more evidence points to him.

but I’m not exactly, sure if i want to pull something like the movie Angel Heart (Dr. Jakell and Mr Hyde complex) or if i want to pull something like were the killer is trying to use this unhinged cop as a get out of jail free card. but either why i want the audience too be unsure as well. if you guys can help me out on this as well then that would be great or if you guys come up with a different idea that you think will be better then please feel free to tell me.

looking forward to reading your guys responses

Suggestion by agilebrit
Start with his wife leaving. That’s where everything changes for him and throws us face-first into the conflict–especially if she reappears throughout the story. Either that, or open on a crime scene, maybe the second or third one, where they start thinking “Um. We may have a serial here.” It depends on how much of a part the wife has. If it’s big, start with her; if not, crime scene.

What would be fun would be to play with an “unreliable narrator” scenario, where it’s told in first person, and he’s doubting himself and starting to question his own sanity.

i really love her books but i cant find her books anywhere. i want her heart trilogy, the summit, natchez flame, creole fires, gypsy lord, sweet vengeance, Lover’s Gold ,Captain’s Bride ,Tin Angel,Dueling Hearts ,Magnificent Passage
I have these books left to read…any help?? any free online site to read her books….i dont have credit card to pay for these books online…

Suggestion by Ralph

Suggestion by LK
The link above by ‘Ralph,’ while showing extremely inexpensive prices for her books, is not “free.”

I tried a link to her http://www.katmartinbooks.com (without ‘books’ it was just a domain) and it lead only to Google and many more places to buy her books.

Any other links you may be given here are illegal, you know.
Her books are under copyright since she is a working author.

You would be much better off finding them at a library near you. Call ahead. Be smart.
Support your favorite author or/and at least use a library.

Suggestion by redunicorn
There is no free and legal place to read that online. Kat Martin isn’t giving it away for free. She writes to make a living.

Any site that has it for free is stealing. The person responsible for that web site could earn possible jail time and fines of up to $ 150,000.
