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

No.

Damn things always give me the death card, go figure.

I have had two tarot card readings.. & swords are holding me back in life. What do swords represent exactly?
How do I get rid of them??
it was the 10 of swords, surrounding the lady, looks like she is almost gone.

Suggestion by Sherry F
Sometimes the swords can represent a kind of self imprisonment. It’s hard to say without knowing all the cards and which sword cards you had and where. For instance were the swords all around you but not touching you. Where there swords near by and the figure was blindfolded, is so that could be that you feel held back but if you just were to remove the blindfold you could see it for what it really is. There’s just to many variables to give you true advise.

Suggestion by Emma~
Swords correspond with the element air. It, of course, depends on your situation and all the cards involved, but I’ll list some of what I know and perhaps something will click. If you want to talk more indepth, email me 😀

Air is the element of the intellect… Swords are all about speaking and communication, as well as thought. If pentacles are all about the body, cups about the emotions and wands about passion, then swords are the mind.
If you’re seeing a lot of swords, consider the extremes of communication: you’re talking far too much, not getting your point across at all, or talking way too little and not expressing your mind. Usually it’s the former, a common attribute of someone described by a sword card is “sharp-tongued”, being rude… Of course, it might not be representing you: perhaps you’re having trouble with someone talking negatively about/to you?
As it is also the realm of the thoughts, then perhaps you’re thinking too much and not just letting go& doing what you want to. Or, you’re having a conflict with someone due to different ideas…

Good luck!

edit: With the 10 of Swords, things can’t get much worse. If you’ve been down lately.. It’s time to get back up, because the shit has already hit the fan and you survived. Only good can come when you’re at the bottom.
If something is holding you back, it is most likely yourself. Especially if you’ve been pitying yourself or getting wrapped up in all the bad that’s happened.

Suggestion by ¡ Tito !
Release your inner inhibitions and do not dwell on the Swords. Talk out your fears with a close friend or relative – if necessary seek professional counseling. Look to the South and focus your energies on the Earth. There, you will find all health, happiness, and peace of mind. Seek out that individual born in the Sign of Leo who makes you laugh – this person will help show you the way. Avoid all darkness and seek only the light – your next reading will reveal The Wands – be careful of the interpretation!

Where I could learn about tarot cards?

Where I could learn about tarot cards?
I write a fanfic where I require tarot cards for each characters, so I’ll need a web page information where tarot cards meanings are listed specifically. Anyone know where?

Suggestion by josh!!!! (*_*)
but the thing is…each card in a tarot deck has different meanings per deck/per person. there are base meanings for the major arcana but still each person can get so many other meanings from them.
for the minor arcana it that is very dependant on the deck, and the reader, plus their connection.

this will give you the basic meanings of the major arcana though. http://www.thelostfound.com/tarot/cards/meanings/major.html

Suggestion by sexy butterfly
I’m not sure but you could use goggle. Just be warned that every deck has its own specific meanings for the court cards and the minor arcana cards along with the symbols. Also some decks have stories to go along with the meaning of all 72 cards. But goggling it should give you the basics.

Suggestion by Mossflower Wood
This website should be able to help you understand both the basic story behind the cards, as well as their meanings in a Tarot reading.

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/learn/meanings/

This site lists all the cards of the Major Arcana, the Minor Arcana, and the suits.

The story of the cards is very fascinating. =]

Tarot Cards – meanings?
I have been seeing only Justice tarot cards in my readings over the last two days. When I asked for a clarification I got Wheel of Fortune (reversed), The Moon (reversed) and The Lovers.

Andbody knows what it means?
I asked different questions, got the same card. Also I have been seeing the tarot card Tower, both revered and upright on and off.

Suggestion by Marquis de LaDeaux
You must keep an eye out on both friends and enemies, because chances are someone is going to try to deceive you. You should also take some personal time for yourself, as people may depend on you and cause you stress.

Suggestion by Brigid
Justice – well, it pretty much means justice. Something that was wrong will be put right.

Wheel of Fortune – upright, it means to let go and simply accept what will happen because the event are out of your control (fate).

The Moon – upright, it represents the unknown, intuition, possibly feminine mysteries or the mysteries of the dark.

The Lovers – could mean love or a relationship; usually means there is an important decision to be made and a sacrifice that will go with it. With love comes choice, with choice comes sacrifice.

The Tower – upright, it represents a sudden and drastic change, like a lighting strike. This energy can be harnessed and directed, but this is incredibly difficult. Usually it best to try and avoid being in the direct path, but certainly expect something big.

When it comes to reversals, there are different schools of thought on the matter. The general method is to interpret the energies of those cards are blocked or in their opposite form. This usually gives them a negative meaning, but in some cases can be pleasant. As with all tarot cards, remember that even the ones that seem bad have a silver lining – with pain comes understanding and learning.

How you want to interpret these reversals is up to you. Base it on the situation and the cards surrounding them in the spread; go with how you think they should be read.

With the Wheel reversed, I would think that means you or someone involved is not willing to surrender control of the situation and just let things take their natural course. The Moon reversed probably means there is a block against your intuition and that you are not listening to your inner voice, probably out of a fear of the unknown. The Tower, well that one is a special card all on its own. Upright, drastic change. Reversed, perhaps a not-so-drastic change. Still, even if you turn the card around, there still is that lightning bolt.

It seems to me that there are important events coming up in your future, and some problems will be made right. You need to let go and accept that some things are out of your control, and have faith in yourself and what you know to be right. Above all, The Lovers is telling you to be true to yourself and what you believe in when faced with a difficult choice. Justice is an important card for you, so hang on to that. What happens now may not be fun and certainly may not be pleasant, but it will be for the best.

What would be a tarot reading that appears bad, but is actually harmless?
I suppose the death card would be one of them… Maybe the fool.

I’d prefer major arcana cards, but the suit of swords would work too, being that swords can appear rather… likely to impale you.
Oh, I know that.

I want cards that sound like they have intimidating names. E.G death.

I know they’re harmless. I have to make a mini-movie for a class I’m taking, I want to lay down 3 cards or whatever, have them look frightening to mislead the viewer, before it’s revealed they aren’t negative in anyway. You understand?

Suggestion by SadharaSatguru
Hello

Nothing about the Tarot is bad.

What is seen as positive/beneficial or negative/harmful is down to a mix of the question/layout/other cards/position cards are in. & of course the reader’s interpretation of the cards.

Death is a card of transition, so what the transition is & how it is received by the individual will determine what type it is, the Fool is new beginnings, being brave, jumping in.

All 78 cards are positive.

is okay to store my tarot cards in a metal box?
i have this cute metal box but im reluctant about storing my tarot cards in it, i would rather have a wooden one but i cant find a cheap one thats nice. i’m going to look at goodwill and ebay has expensive shipping on all their boxes. so, is metal okay and does anyone have any other ideas of where i could get a box?

Suggestion by Darth Snape
It is ok. Just poke a few holes so the energies can pass through.

Suggestion by Sue
The fact that you are reluctant gives you your answer. Your tarot cards are personal to you and as such whatever you feel is right for them is right for them 🙂

In some magical traditions the use of metal is prohibited, in others it is perfectly fine. Some people feel that metal is insulating, some feel it is conductive. If you feel wood is better then go for wood.

As for where to get them, I’ve found a lot of DIY and hobby shops have some nice wood boxes that you can decorate yourself, or there are always charity shops although you’ll need to cleanse it before use.

Often people just keep their cards in an embroidered bag. There is a saying that you should keep them wrapped in purple cloth and with a moonstone. Not everyone follows this however.

Suggestion by kymm r
It should be stored in wood as it is a natural substance the wood representing trees and the earth it stands in.

Are tarot cards reading against other religion?
I want a set of tarot cards to learn how to read and use them, but i’m wondering is it against other religion like Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism to use it. Is it against god to use tarot cards and is it sinful?

Suggestion by User
If God is real, he is laughing at you right now.

Suggestion by BlackThorn
I know it is against Christianity to use tarot cards. I wouldn’t know about Buddhism or Hindu, but I’ve asked several pastors this same question and they all told me it was against the Bible.

Suggestion by Secret_Garden
according to christianity yes but I don’t about hinduism or buddhism .. I am not sure if they believe in this method but they will have another method for reading the future.
