Pagan related… What is a cool tarot card deck ?
I’m looking at paganism, and I’m interested in cool tarot card decks like: mystical creatures, (angels and demons), aliens.. Etc

Do you know of any decks that sound similar to what I like?

Suggestion by WiccaTeen
your most likely gonna want a basi deck to start off with, some that have the meanings on them that way you can learn the meaning and progress to a standard deck, if your looking down the pagan deck i would use a nature based deck.

Suggestion by ℒ’amour est ℒe chaos
Tarot is related to occultism and divination tools, not so much paganism

I like the Robin Wood deck personally
http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/robin-wood/

just go through that sites directory they have every deck listed by category

Suggestion by Emily
The Gaia Oracle I can’t stand any other deck of cards although this may not be want you want exactly but it does come with three explanation thingos to help understand what others or yourself are really feeling

What is your favorite Tarot card deck to use for divination?

Suggestion by believer_in_jesus37421
Dear Emily,

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).

Depends on the day. Current favorite is the Hoi Polloi, a RWS clone. I also find myself picking up decks with unillustrated pips.

What are some beautiful Tarot card decks?

What are some beautiful Tarot card decks?

Egads, the Thoth deck is butt ugly.

Suggestion by The Undertaker
I am not the best to judge this but from what I have seen, Dragon and Nefetari are very beautiful. But, I am not a pro at this and far from it 🙂 There is ONE deck that did catch my attention and that was the Illuminated Tarot based on Rider waite. They are hand-made.

Suggestion by Hawkinsian
The Thoth tarot is aesthetically most lovely. I also find the Universal tarot deck a good education in world symbolism.

Peace

Suggestion by Giselita
Personally, I really like the style of the Art Noveau Tarot

Is there a horse themed tarot card deck?
I’m looking for a decent horse-themed tarot card deck. And if I can push it a bit further, a unicorn deck would be great too. Please keep rude comments to yourself.

Never heard of one,

Suggestion by Helen
Do unicorns count?:-)

The 4 knights are usually on horseback in most decks.

You might like the Buckland Romani (gypsy) deck as horses feature quite a bit. It is available directly from the publisher Galde Press.

Do you need some sort of degree before you start professionlly reading palms, tarot cards, etc?

Do you need some sort of degree before you start professionlly reading palms, tarot cards, etc?
Just out of curiosity. Can people really just put a sign on their house and charge people for readings?

Suggestion by A Canadian Atheist
Sure, con artists have been doing it for a very long time.
And you don’t need a degree, just a totall lack of morals, scruples and a desire to bilk gullible people out of their cash by convincing them that printed cardstock, can somehow, tell the future.

Suggestion by Gary B
That is EXACLLTY what con artists, thieves, and crackpots do.

Maybe you should look into a degree in CARDiology???

The only thing you need is the proper Business License required by the state or city. Most location WILL NOT allow you to run a “walk-in” business from your house. That is, you can’t have a business where customers come into your house in a residential neighborhood (you CAN run something like a mail-order business out of your spare bedroom, though). You must obtain any special “Zoning Variations” as required by the city or state.

Suggestion by The Undying Atheist
Yes because those tricks aren’t real.
Its a play of the placebo effect

What type of crystal must I use to cleanse my tarot cards?
I’ve read that you should use clear quartz or amethyst, but I was specifically wondering if I could use a small rose quartz as a substitute?

If you spill coffee on tarot cards, should you just replace them if some are quite damaged?

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.

I have some general questions about tarot cards and reading?

tarot cards

I have some general questions about tarot cards and reading?
1. How do you shuffle your deck? I know it’s a manner of preference, but I want some opinions. This leads into…

2. Should I encourage reverse cards? Is this also a manner of preference?

3. What is a good spread for asking simple questions? Just shuffle and draw a card as an answer?

Suggestion by Meetu
First thing abt Tarot – FOLLOW your INTUITION.
1. U can shuffle any way u like. Tarot cards r sacred. so handle them with respect. I shuffle like playing cards jus tht i do it much more respectfully and lovingly This is the easiest way for me as my hands ar a little small. They r ur companions.

2. Again its a matter of ur chioce. Reverse cards also indicate the same except tht the intensity of the msg of the card is reduced. Its more like planets going retrograde. I generally dont use reversed cards. Only if they fall from deck in a reversed manner i read them in tht way.

3. For simple questions u can do a one card reading or 5 card reading. again go with ur intuition. Sometimes a single card cant give u info as the issue goes deeper, so u can take either a clarification card or do a complete reading. Use bigger spreads for getting deeper insights.

Suggestion by Helen
1) Overhand (I have never been able to riffle shuffle any cards and I and don’t want to damage my cards)
2) Not as a beginner, but later to add some depth to your dictionary/vocabulary
3) Single card or three card spread (past, present, future) or 2-card challenges spread (situation and challenges), or 2-card challenges spread plus likely outcome of current path/direction (the 3 main cards from the celtic cross spread for a specific issue).

There are some great tips in this site:

Suggestion by Rev. Lynn D.
I shuffle my deck as I would any other cards and it is a matter of preference. Some readers don’t use reverse cards but I think that it limits you in your readings if reverse is not used. You don’t have to encourage them, they will just happen.

I don’t use a spread for questions. I throw 3 – 5 cards and sometimes even more if I don’t get the answer right away.

Can other people besides yourself touch your tarot cards?
I have heard that nobody but you can touch them because of personal energy,but what if the other person is the questioner? Dont they have to pick out thier own cards?

Suggestion by overweight doomsayerz
You’re just not supposed to have a tarot card set that has been used by someone else.

Suggestion by samakāmitā
sure, if they find some.

Suggestion by Maci
If someone touched your tarot cards and made you feel uncomfortable, tell a trusted adult. No one should touch your tarot cards until you are ready.
