Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Is it bad to tell other people your tarot card readings?

Is it bad to tell your friends details about your tarot card readings? i read somewhere that what they tell you wont necessarily come true after having told someone…readings are personal and should be kept to oneself is this true? does this mean by me telling my friends what they told me chances are i might have changed the future around? i know the cards aren’t set in stone but im scared i might not get the result im waiting for because i told my friends when they asked.

4) this is the reason why people told others not to do tarot readings or fortune tellings cuz it can scared the crap out of the weakminded

Answer by Henry
Why would it matter if you told someone you have the card.

Answer by emfederin
It’s even worse to tell people you put any stock or credence in tarot card readings.

If it has nothing to do with them in any way, then I say go ahead. But, if it affects them in one way or another, you may alter their perception of the situation/conflict. They may do or say something that the cards cannot predict. You are right – they are not set in stone. Time is not linear, it is like a tree – always branching, depending on your choices, and, in some situations, the choices of those around you.
Honestly, I’d keep these readings to myself – I treat tarot, rune, and palm readings for what they are – divination. It is strange (well, it sounds that way to me, anyway), to approach it in a more scientific way. Well, I’ll explain:
To find out how “accurate” your readings are, you must establish a baseline. Take a record, don’t tell anyone, until after the problem is resolved. That way, you won’t feel like you are “tempting fate” to change your reading, or prove it false!
You might want to do another reading, to see if your friends knowing will change anything…just a thought.
Good Luck!
Blessings of the Gods!

Please don’t use tarot cards. Like the ouija board, you are inviting things into your life that you might not be able to deal with.

Answer by souls.journey
No. Speaking about what the Oracle says doesn’t change your future or what the Oracle conveyed to you.

Readings are personal ~ but it is always up to us what we share with others or what we don’t share. This may be why someone said what they said, as they are personal. Posting cards to the internet for interpretation, for example, could be good or bad. If someone knows how to read Tarot, they will see right into your life. If they don’t know you, that’s fine. But if they do know you, I would hope they are a friend.

Discussing your reading will never remove the meaning behind what the Oracle said. And remember, Tarot gives probable outcomes ~ what she says is not set in stone. We all have the power to rule our fate inside us. If we change our actions, we also change our cards.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : What does the hanged man in Tarot mean regarding relationships?

Two years ago when I got a Tarot reading I asked about my love life as I was single. She pulled three cards which she said referred to three different men. Two of them I knew immediately who they were, the last one however was a little iffy. It was the hanged man, she said it symbolized someone from my past who may come back into my life but has certain reservations and won’t be quick into a relationship. Does this make sense? Also what other things could that card have meant? I trust her intuition but I am just curious.

Answer by pǝʞɔıʍ ɥɔʇıʍ™ of the West
Most times the hanged man means change, the death of old ideals or feelings to make way for new ones.
Was the card upright or upside down? It fell in the “what could be” part of the spread?
Remember, readings change with time and circumstance. At the time of the reading this new man could cause huge changes in your life, or way of looking at things.
You could probably get a different interpretation of the cards now, because the future is fluid, it changes. That’s why no card reader or psychic can ever tell you with 100% accuracy, what will happen in the future.
I would tell you more detail, but, I need you to touch my cards first.

Answer by Scarlet MacBlu
Tarot is an intuitive craft. No other person can interpret your readers cards for you… only she can. If you want another reading to clarify what this one meant, either ask her to read for you again, ask her for clarification on that card, find a different reader or buy yourself a deck and read for yourself.
The hanged man has implications of putting things on hold for the sake of wisdom, making sacrifices to achieve enlightenment or an improved skill. That is a simple explanation, but tarot readings go beyond the surface meaning of the card. They provide symbols intended to be used by an interpretive, intuitive mind and only that particular reader can tell you what a card means in her particular reading style.

Answer by Alder
If I pulled it when doing a reading for someone, and the question was about love relationships, I’d say, “So you were on a break, after all.” 😉 Ok, that’s only funny if you know about Ross & Rachel.

But the Hanged Man does mean stepping aside from things, pulling back, pausing, to get perspective on a situation. To lift yourself up above it so you can see it objectively, and giving yourself a time of non-action that you need to gain insight and wisdom. So it does mean taking a break, but it means coming back from the break ready to move to a new place. The new place may be a deeper level of commitment, or it may mean a break-up, though. It could mean some kind of dramatic or even traumatic experience in your life, that makes you grow and change in some way, so that when you step back into your former life, you’re not the same person you were.

Very rarely would I read a major arcana card as applying to someone else, though. Usually it refers to the Querant, the person for whom I’m doing the reading. So I would have read the hanged man as you, that it was you who was going through a transition where everything in your life was put on hold, and when you came out of the transition, you would look at everything differently.

Answer by Spyderbear
First of all, if it was two years ago, a lot has changed since then, and the cards probably do not apply.
The hanged man does imply a time of delay as others have stated. There is also a strong aspect of spirituality involved. The person feels that they must make certain sacrifices in order to be right spiritually.

Answer by George
I agree with the other answers you’ve had so far so I’ll just add a bit more to it, maybe it’ll help.

The Hanged Man is symbolic of the crucifixion, it has a theme of self sacrifice to it as well as suspension.
The imagery of the card that was drawn is very important, did the reader use a standard Rider-Waite deck or something else?
In the RW the man has a halo, or aura of bright light, behind his head.
So there is an element of martyrdom about the imagery in there.

It’s possible you have an admirer who likes you but has never made a move.
A good soul who would stand back and let others take the place that he wants.
Perhaps he doesn’t think he’s good enough for you?


Born and brought up in India. When I came in to senses . i was able to see strange figures in surroundings. When ever i told this to my mom. She used to laugh at me and always said you are day dreaming.

I was always able to see dead people ever since i was 10 years old. My journey in to the field of Tantra started at the age of 14 years, when a neighbor gave me Durgasaptshati book. which is very powerful stotra path of goddess Durga.

Also i started studying Palmistry. When i was 16 years old i was attacked by a demon while i was sleeping by that time i was following tantra and saved my self by mantra power. Since then I never looked back and I kept trying new Dhyan Yoga, Mantra and Tantra sadhnas procedures.
