What are the meanings of regular playing cards when they are normal and inverted in a tarot card reading?
I am trying to learn how to learn how to do tarot card readings with regular playing cards, but every website I have gone to so far have not said what the inverted meanings of all the cards are. I know it would be a lot easier to just go out and buy a regular deck of tarot cards, but my parents refuse to allow me to get them. Help please?

There is a website that gives the equivalent meaning. Give me a few minutes to find it.

Couldn’t find it. I starred you Q for my contacts who are better at this than I.

Suggestion by Kristen T
It means that the energy represented is hidden or not yet manifested. A lot depends on your own intuition. I read the cards & practiced some other psychic reading tools, & it backfired on me-giving me chronic headaches & a nervous condition which was cured through meditation. Best is to follow your parent’s advice.

Suggestion by KdS
Well, I think the main reason they don’t usually give the meanings for reversals, are that most modern playing card decks can’t make reversals (the cards are usually mirrored for both sides.) However, for tarot, there are three modes of deciding meanings for reversals that would work for a playing card as well, as described in the book The Cartomancer’s Key :–

Consider it to be the opposite of the upright meaning.
Consider it to be the negative side of the upright meaning (like the downside of a card meaning “success” might be “responsibility” or “hard work”)
Consider it to indicate a blockage of the card’s upright meaning (so for a card that would upright mean “success” it could mean “inability to achieve success.”)

As for the upright meanings, the same book lists a method for reading them.

Hope this helps.

What are the personality meanings behind playing cards?
Does anyone know of a website where they describe personality meanings by date and playing cards?
I went to a new age store the other day and found this section where they had a chart of the calendar with assigned cards and every suit symbolized a different part that is more pronounced in a personality type, sort of like the elements.

♦ Books & Authors: If your character was a playing card, what card would they be? ♠ + BQ?
♥ I was creating an ‘About Me’ for Facebook when I realized that I should use a symbol for each thing I listed. When I used the ’diamond’ symbol I thought of a deck of playing cards. I began to wonder what the meaning behind each card led me to analyzing Ezra. It turns out Ezra would be an Ace of Diamonds, because he has a struggle of conquest. =)

    If you lightly mark the bottom of the cards face with a marker, you’ll know if its reversed by how it falls in your spread. Markings on top would be reversed.

    Provided you have the basics, any Tarot site can help you understand the definitions.

    Spades = Swords
    Hearts = Cups
    Clubs = Wands
    Diamonds = Pentacles

    But remember, you need to add your Court cards and Major Arcana. You can do this by simply getting another deck of playing cards! :) Write in the name of the Court Cards or Major Arcana. Traditional Tarot has 16 court cards and 22 Major Arcana. This sounds like a neat project actually! Shows devotion to the craft of reading well and this is always a pleasure to see! :)

    You may find numerology helpful as well for card divination.

    You cannot do a Tarot reading with playing cards.

    Divination with playing cards is called Cartomancy, give it a google & you will find many sites that will give you card details.

    For my character, she is stuck between two:

    1. The five of spades – She has to give up everything that’s important to her for victory, and it changes her viewpoint on life significantly. She can never be the same again.

    and

    2. The seven of spades – She has to sink into a life of betrayal and theft. It’s pretty much a huge part of her life after awhile.

    Haha, I hope I did that right. Anyway…

    BQ1: What playing card if your favorite?
    I think the King of Hearts is interesting, because he is the only king without a moustache and he appears to be stabbing himself in the head. I always have to wonder about the story behind that…

    BQ2: What is your favorite poem?
    Unfortunately, I can’t remember the name. I read it freshman year and it was amazing, but all I remember is that the last line is “I am not dead.” (I know, descriptive.) I also enjoy Fire and Ice by Robert Frost also, and The Love Song of Alfred Prufrock by by T.S. Elliot. I also love Jabberwocky :) (Yeah, I like a lot…)

    BQ3: What is your favorite type of weather?
    Sunny and very, very warm.

    BQ4: What do you have planned this summer?
    A few trips around the US, hopefully getting a job, and a lot of time hanging out with friends! And writing of course :)

    BQ5: What is your favorite time of the day?
    Sunset. I just love it.

    BQ6: Do you prefer dark or light colors?
    I like both, but if I had to choose, maybe light.
