Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Help with this tarot card meaning?

I had this Soul Mate tarot reading done a year or so ago. I saved it, and I still haven’t found a relationship so I was looked at it again. I’m confused about what Strength is suppose to mean in this case. It came up in the “In what situation will you meet your soul mate” part, I’m not sure exactly how I’m going to meet my soul mate with my stenghts? Here’s what they told me for the card, can anyone give me so more insight?

“Card two: In what situation will I/You meet my/your soul mate?: Literally, the Strength card represents strength, courage and determination – trusting your own abilities. Your strength comes from within (she is the female archetype of internal power. It also represents compassion. In a reading this card represents the seeker’s need for these use attributes. It’s intellect and reason coupled with enthusiasm and energy. You can deal with whatever life throws at you. Overcoming an obstacle. Seizing control of your destiny.

It is a time for being constructive, not destructive. It is a time for discipline and listening to your inner voice for direction. Understanding the consequences to your actions.

It can also speak of the awareness of temptations and the ability to overcome them. ”

Answer by pieter U3
The way I would interpret that card in that placing is as follows:
It suggests to me that once you show “strength” you will be ready to meet your soul mate. You currently lack such strength as demonstrated by your need to clarify your reading. Once you gain more self-confidence and are stronger within yourself and more capable to handle yourself in the real world, you will be more ready to deal with mature relationships. At this stage I feel you may be too needy or too insecure and therefore “too keen” to meet that special person. You cannot enter into a solid relationship with someone who will play such an important part in your life while you live in uncertainty and with doubt and longing colouring everything you do and feel.

My advice would be to forget about meeting that special person at this time and concentrate on becoming a more balanced and self-reliant person who is confident and happy to be themselves. You can only ever be available to meet someone. You can not force it or make someone come to you. That happens in itself – automatically, but you must be ready, not all desperate and exuding need. Put it out of your mind and boldly face the word. Go out there and grow for a while. Take time to be yourself and not what you believe others might find attractive. Confidence is attractive and that comes with experience and maturity. Things will come to you in time. Be patient. Be strong. Be that Strength Card and be you.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : What are Tarot Cards?

‘ve heard so much about Tarot Cards. I know they are really to contact the dead, but what exactly do you do? And can I make Tarot Cards out of a deck of cards? Also does each card mean something? If so please tell! Thanks!

Answer by Geezah
Actually they’re used for divination (predicting past/present/future), not contacting the dead.

Different readers have slightly different ways of doing it, but basically: the Tarot reader sits down with the person who wants a Tarot reading, then the reader does a spread (a certain layout of cards taken from the shuffled deck), and interprets them, both individually and how they might relate to each other.

Yes, you CAN actually make your own Tarot deck. Get 78 cards, and put the 78 Tarot arcana on them. Yes, each card means something.

You COULD do a Tarot-like reading with a standard deck of 52 cards (hearts = cups, clubs = rods/wands, spades = swords, diamonds = coins/pentacles, jacks = page or knight). But you’d be limited to only the minor arcana cards (“The 3 of Swords”, “The King of Wands”, etc.) and wouldn’t have the major arcana (“Death”, “The Tower”, “The Lovers”, “The Sun”, etc.)

Answer by Danielle
Eurgh.

Tarot cards do NOT contact the dead, neither are they anything to do with mysticism or psychicness.

This is a falsehood made up by stupid ‘psychics’ wanting to make money.

REAL tarot cards are an old tradition used in many cultures as a way of revealing things to them. In most cultures, these cards were actually a game – only a few cultures saw them as truth.

REAL tarot readers do not claim to be psychic or mediums. Real tarot readers use the cards the way that the cards were originally intended. Real tarot readers will readily admit that the cards are not always right at all, and do not allow themselves to perform cold readings.

Each card does have a meaning. If you get a genuine tarot reader, the cards can be scarily accurate sometimes – but half the time, theyre not. They are not intended to believed to be right all the time – for it has nothing to do with psychics.

Answer by Salvation Soldier
They can be used from trying to contact spirits to telling past, present, and future.I think you can use a regular deck but I am a christian so you may want to address the question to wiccans or another similar group for a more acurate answer. Each card does have an individual meaning but I do not remember them. Please think hard b/f using them I would prefer you didn’t.

Answer by franhu
Tarot cards are another of Satan’s inventions to keep you occupied so you will not have time to study God’s Word!

These cards do not contact DEAD people, they really contact Satan’s evil demons who are pretending to be dead people.

Just as we have good (guardian) angels, we also have one of Satan’s evil demons with us at ALL times so they can imitate us after we die.

Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, :11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. :12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. :13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.

Answer by Luna
Tarot reading revolves around the belief that the cards can be used to gain insight into the current and possible future situations of the subject. Some believe they are guided by a spiritual force, such as Gaia, while others believe the cards help them tap into a collective unconscious or their own creative, brainstorming subconscious.

You can make your own, but it’s a lot of work.

Answer by bluejessy
It is not for contacting the dead, if you know how to read it you can read about your past, present and future, it is very interesting.

Answer by ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Tarot cards are not used for contacting those in the afterlife, they are tools used in the ancient art of Divination… and yes, you can make your own Tarot cards with regular playing cards, in fact, playing cards were actually based off of Tarot cards, that is probably why the Christians have thought they were evil for so long, because they thought Tarot was evil…. and again, yes, each card means something different, you can get books on what the separate cards mean….

Hope this helped

Answer by philosophyangel
How many times a day is this Q asked? Do a search for the Question. I have answered this Q repeatedly.

They are a deck of cards invented in Italy in the 13th or 14th century. They were used to play a game like Bridge. In the late 18th century, a French occultist who also was a clergyman saw the cards for the first time and decided that they has special mystical and magical meaning and thought they came from Egypt from the Gypsies (even though Gypsies originally came for India LOL).

The cards meant certain philosophical and cultural things to 14th century Italians. They meant something completely different to 19th century occultists. There are a gazillion books and Web sites discussing the meanings and also discussing the make believe history of Tarot as if it were true.

You can certainly make your own Tarot Cards and you can use a regular playing deck to tell fortunes.

I have essays on Tarot on my 360 blog but the essays are close to the beginning so you have to drill through a lot of stuff to find them. Also I recommend a book on the Tarot (that you can find on amazon.com) by Cynthia Giles

Answer by philebus
Well, for a better picture, let’s start with regular playing cards. These arrived in Europe from the Islamic world during the late 14th century (probably not earlier than 1370) in much the format as we have today – four suits, each with 10 pip cards and 3 court cards. The original suit signs were swords, polo sticks, cups, and coins. The game of polo was not familiar to Europeans at the time, so that suit became batons and these suits are now known as the Latin suits – all of Europe used them at one time. The court cards were a king, a rider, and a footman – all male court cards are still used in many countries.

The first instance we have of a queen is in a Milanese pack featuring 6 courts in each suit – a male and a female of each rank. The number of courts reduced again but for some time the queen was retained in a 56 card pack. It was to this pack that an extra suit was added to create the tarot pack.

The first tarot was commissioned in the mid 15th century by the Duke of Milan for the wedding celebrations for his daughter, Bianca Visconti’s marriage into the Sforza family. The extra suit of cards took as it’s theme, not an occult philosophy or magical symbols but a traditional Christian triumph procession of the time – hence they were called trionfi, meaning triumphs, and from which we get our word trump. Some historians suggest that they specifically represent the procession that was held to celebrate Bianca’s Birth in 1425. It was the invention of tarot that marked the invention of trumps in card games and this was the original use of tarot, for playing card games. For 350 years they were used for nothing else, becoming, at one point, the most popular form of card game in Europe. I’m happy to say that the games are still played!

These days the games are usually played using a French suited pack, although the old Italian suits and trumps are still used in Italy, Sicily, and Switzerland. The practice of using French suits began in Germany (hence it is often called the German pattern) in the late 17th century and they became widespread for the same economic reasons that French suits became dominant for regular playing cards. The Latin suits required costly woodblock printing, while the French suits could be reproduced with a simple stencil!

Hello Connor

Tarot are not for Mediumship, they will not help you to make contact with a loved one in spirit, but they will help you develop your Clairvoyant nature & the relationship that you have with your guides.

You use tarot for guidance, insight, meditation, personal development & psychic growth.

Yes you can make tarot cards, just as you can make anything else. But you need to understand what they are first. It can take years to develop a relationship with them.

It symbolises that you must always trust your inner feelings and your heart to lead the way.

Answer by Have a Drink on Gazoo
Yeah…I shouldn’t answer these because its total crap, but I did read these for a summer and I always know the answer

It’s a card of strong emotion. That could mean a few things. In this case it’s important rather it was upright or reversed and you didn’t say.

Reversed would be telling you to hold emotion in check. Upright would mean there may be hope, but it could also be a sign that the emotion is one sided and that could end really badly.

Answer by Hiedi
I hate to the barer of bad news but it means heartache, mistrust, argument, sorrow, and unfulfilled dreams. Btw tarot cards aren’t good, I know from experience, ex Pagan.

Answer by Yvie B
Honestly, I’ve never heard of Ace of Cups… however, I’m guessing that it is the same thing as Tarot.

Tarot is a form of demonic spiritism/divination and it is directly condemned in the Bible.

Deuteronomy 18:10, 11: “There should not be found in you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, anyone who employs divination, a practicer of magic or anyone who looks for omens or a sorcerer, or one who binds others with a spell or anyone who consults a spirit medium or a professional foreteller of events or anyone who inquires of the dead”

Divination is also condemned. Divination is an attempt to find out about the future or about something unknown. Some forms of divination are astrology, the use of tarot cards, crystal gazing, palmistry, and the search for mysterious omens, or signs, in dreams. Although many people think that practicing divination is harmless, the Bible shows that fortune-tellers and wicked spirits work together. For instance, Acts 16:16-18 mentions “a demon of divination” that enabled a girl to practice “the art of prediction.” But she lost this ability when the demon was cast out of her.

It is natural that everyone should want to know what the future holds. The desire to secure good fortune and to avert what may be harmful is also universal. That is why people throughout the ages have looked to spirits and deities for guidance. In so doing, they became involved in spiritism, magic, astrology, and other superstitious practices. People in the past wore amulets and talismans to protect themselves, and they turned to medicine men and shamans for cures. People today still carry “Saint” Christopher medals or wear “good luck” charms, and they have their séances, Ouija boards, crystal balls, horoscopes, and tarot cards.

Answer by Elaine M
You don’t need a tarot reading on this, the guy clearly isn’t ‘into’ you enough to be considered a boyfriend. Hoping and wishing changes nothing. Accept that two people are involved in an interaction here and one clearly wants out.

The downside of a tarot reading being done by a beginner is that the cards often just show you what you WANT them to show you, not what’s really needing to be said. Take a step back and think about the guy and jput someone else in your place. How does it look when you distance yourself enough to SEE the actions taking place between him and your stand in? From what you posted, it’s pretty clear to me. It should be to you as well.

Answer by Abomination of Desolation
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law,

I am not a fan of tarot reading as a party trick like this, so I will just go on about philosophical tarot.

The Ace of Cups is the Root of the Powers of Water. This relates it specifically to “The Holy Grail,” and thus in it’s proper form it should be a cup overflowing with water. The water is a representation of Joy and Grace in this card seeing how it is an Ace.

It is important to note that while the Ace is the root of the Powers of Water it is not REALLY Water- just the seed by which that concept will sprout. This means that it is the most honest card in the entire suit of Cups. Because of this, it also represents the most divine manifestation of the concept of Water-

Earlier I said the cup is overflowing. This is because the Aces are unlimited in scope due to their closeness to divinity. Think of it as a wine cup overflowing- wine makes people happy, but wine also makes people dumb. As the Ace progresses into the remaining 9 cards, the idea of drunkenness is expanded, with some of the worst cards in the deck being of the suit of Cups.

So, as it relates to your answer- it means nothing. There is nothing in your description to relate it to anything, and pulling a random card from a deck will not give you an answer. A properly done tarot reading is about the relations of the cards with each other more than it is any of the individual cards.

Love is the law, love under Will.
