There are so many cards I can’t list all the cards and their corresponding meanings here. But you could always pick up a book online pretty cheap, I think I bought my first one for about $ 3. One of my favorite websites for tarot is http://www.learntarot.com/cards.htm. It’s free, I can easily look up the meanings of various cards, and how those meanings might be influenced by cards surrounding them and in what ways. I also found another site that seems to show spreads and whatnot, I haven’t checked it out as thoroughly as this first one however.

I personally just like tarot as a way to slow down and figure out what I’m already thinking. I believe that I naturally give more weight and value to things that hit closer to home on a problem. There are so many ways to interpret cards to start with and then when you consider I can just reshuffle if I don’t think that particular spread was helpful.

I don’t really think that you need to have any special skills to make them increasingly accurate. I think you just need to slow down and use your intuition to guide you to a conclusion. I think you get better as you use them more of course.

You can usually purchase tarot cards at major bookstores such as Barnes and Noble, however they are usually going to cost more than if you get them online. I looked around their site and it seems most are around the $ 20 range with some in the $ 10 range, however, I’ve also found a set that includes a book that might be useful in the ten range. I just quickly searched around on amazon and there are a lot of options in the $ 9 range and also quite a few options in the $ 4-5 range. Just type in “tarot card deck” and sift through the pages you should be able to find stuff that you like.

A lot of people like the traditional The Rider-Waite Tarot Deck, it might be a pretty good starter deck because the descriptions that you often find in books will use the imagery contained in this deck. But, I think it’s more important that appeals to you visually. I forget the name of the deck I have, my mother gave it to me and I absolutely love it.

Good luck, I hope this helps 😀

Answer by arcanadavidson
You understand by looking at the pictures. It’s all about trusting your gut and what you feel the cards say and intuition when you read a deck. Not necessarily about what the little book that came in the box tells you.

It took me about 6 months to learn it all just so you know.

You think of something you want to know. The cards aren’t going to consider if you don’t want to know the truth or what you want to happen. They are going to just blurt out about whatever it is you asked, whether you want to hear it or not.

So, you pull out the deck, you think of whatever you wanna know
You shuffle the deck till you feel you should stop, you can shuffle it vegas style, or however you want, it’s up to you and lay out three to start off.

Put the deck down, upside down the backs of the deck are facing the air, the pictures are facing the table. I grab the side with the card in beween my thumb and first finger, and flip it over one at a time left to right, I pull off one for the left, meaning past, one for the middle meaning present, and one for the right, meaning future.

You can choose to read them upside down and upright (Which is what I do) Or just upright. If they are upside down, they usually mean delays. the suits that have the coins, the staffs, the cups and the swords are all small day stuff. The cards that have the roman numeral numbers on em all the way up to XXI are for bigger life events.

Tarot is meant to give you some advice and since our lives are free to be lived how we want it’s really up to you if you want to listen to what the cards are telling you. No, the cards aren’t going to tell you who you will marry, they aren’t going to tell you if today’s a good day to play the lottery, they are just meant to tell you things about you and what might happen if you continue doing what you are doing.

Some good reading is Idiot’s guide to reading tarot and fortune telling by Alene Tognetti

And Also the Everything Guide to Tarot (Don’t remember who authors it)

http://www.mellinetti.com/ is a good site too, she wrote the top book, and also, there is a place where you can put in a question up at the top, and when it spreads the cards for you, it will tell you what the card means, and what the spot the card is in means. So that might help you get a better understanding of it, if you want to learn it. The only thing that sucks is it’s a computer telling you stuff, so it doesn’t add what a person would tell you if they were looking at your reading in whole

For instance if alot of the cards had the cups in em, I would tell you that you were asking about your love life. Coins, Work, or Religion, Staffs about Travel, or school. Swords, are more painful events or fighting, or things that you are thinking.

It’s fun, and no, you are not going to burn in hell for doing it, people tell you otherwise tell em where to put that bible.
There are tons of christians out there that read the cards totally on the thought that angels are helping em.

But if you are serious about learning about tarot, just know that it’s a lot of F*cking work. And you don’t do it overnight. Not even the best reader out there, can teach you how. Just look at the pictures and what the people are doing. And ask yourself, what does your gut say about that card?

Well, there are many ways of using tarot cards, some of which may surprise you. First of all, I’ll explain just what they are…

Tarot cards were created in mid 15th century Italy for the Milanese court and consist of two parts: a standards pack of Latin suited playing cards (preexisting tarot in Europe by about 70 years) and a fifth suit of picture cards. These extra cards took as their theme a Christian triumph procession, hence their early name of trionfi, meaning triumphs and from which we get our word trump. And this is what they were, a suit of fixed trumps for use in a family of card games that continue to be played throughout continental Europe to this day.

It was not until the end of the 18th century that a Parisian occultist, ignorant of their true origin, proposed that the cards came from ancient Egypt and published a method for their use in fortune telling. For about 100 years, these ideas were limited to France but at the end of the 19th century, British occultists began to import the cards and occult myths to the English speaking world. Since then, occultists have been heavily redesigning the images to explicitly represent their ideas and have been created various ways to interpret them.

So, on to the how…

1. Card Games: There are very many tarot games out there but with only one exception they are all point-trick games. This means that like Bridge, Hearts, and Spades, you win cards in tricks but unlike them, different cards carry different card points. So it is not the number of tricks you win that matters but the number of card points in them. You can find rules to many of these games here:

http://www.tarocchino.com
http://www.pagat.com

2. Medition: Many people use the card to represent important spiritual ideas to them, thus they use them as a focus for meditation. These techniques generally involve relaxation methods, along with empying the mind of everything but the image you wish to focus upon.

3. Fortune Telling: As I’ve indicated from their origin, there is no right or wrong way to go about this. The cards were not created for the purpose and more than dominoes, tea leaves, or knuckle bones are. Many people just invent methods that feel intuitive to themselves and interpret the cards according to whatever mean makes sense to them. If you prefer instruction, you can find some downloads here:

http://www.aeclectic.net

However you choose to use the cards, I hope that you enjoy them.

Good site for understanding the tarot

Answer by ☼ Epona ☼
I do not know how to put it simply.

The deck is divided into two parts, the Minor Arcana and the Major Arcana or Trumps.

The Minor Arcana are the cups, swords, wands and pentacles, like the four suits of a traditional deck of cards. The Major Arcana are specific cards like The Fool, The Moon, The Sun, etc. Some have different names depending on the deck.

Each card, be it minor or major arcana has a meaning. The meaning changes depending on if the card is laid down rightside up or upside down, which is called reversed.

To do a tarot reading, shuffle the deck and mix all the cards together, try to put some upside down. Laying the cards down is called a “Spread” and there are different kinds available.

The simplest is to lay three cards down one after another in a line. The first card represents the Past, the second the Present, and the third the Future.

They can also mean the Question, the Solution, and the Outcome.

Now, to find the meanings of the cards you will need a book, or a website, that describes what each card means. Simple go to google and type in “Standard Tarot Card Meanings” and browse through the sites you find until you come across one that describes the cards in a way you understand. Or, find out what deck you have, and buy the book for that deck on amazon.

Once you have used the cards for years, you will begin to notice things in your readings and the results that will help you create your own unique interpretations of the cards. But this is born of years of working with the cards, and of getting feedback from the people you do readings for about how their questions turned out.

This is as simple as it can be told. But to try and sum up:

Shuffle the deck.
Lay the cards out three in a row.
Find a site that says the meaning of the cards.
Find the meaning of the three cards you pulled out.
Tell this meaning to whoever you are doing a reading for.

Answer by Pretty
This is my experience in Tarot.
A few years ago I got into it. I understood it, it was fascinating to me…
Then I became obsessed with it. I could not leave the house until My cards told me it was safe…I’d get a bad reading, and would keep shuffling and dealing. I would cry if I couldn’t get a good reading.
I became depressed. My husband had warned me, but I wouldn’t listen. They are dark. Just like the ouija board…..I don’t know. Some people can do it and have no trouble. A friend of mine does it, and she prays for protection surrounding herself with the White Light of the Holy Spirit.
I didn’t need them any way. I am psychic, and have little trouble getting answers from Spirit when I need them. But, I am still growing. We never stop growing and learning.
If you must do Tarot, pray for protection. Bad spirits look for open doors. You only want good to enter.

do not use. they are a media for witchcraft..stay away from it!

Answer by Fairy Love
I always use a tarot book to guide me. I find that a book helps until you can interpret them yourself. But here is a start:

1) pick out any tarot deck you are attracted to
2) get a tarot book you can reference for the meanings of the cards
3) hold the deck in your hands, put your energy into it and touch every card
4) hold it close to your heart for a few seconds
5) hold the deck in your hands and say a little prayer before you start shuffling…always ask for guidance “from the light” ask for guidance from anybody coming from the light (for example God, Jesus, deceased Relatives, Archangels, etc.) ask for answers for your best and highest good.
6) shuffle the cards until you feel comfortable stopping
7) cut the cards in 3 piles then pick them up in any order
8) get your book out and lay them into a celtic cross or whatever layout you choose
9) the book will give you directions on what each position and each card means

I hope this helps!
Blessings & Good Luck
