Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : What does it mean if you draw all court cards of the same suit in a tarot reading?

I did a simple 3 card reading the other day on any potential for love in my near future (I’m in a major dry spell folks!) and I got 1.Queen of Wands 2.Knight of Wands 3.Knave of Wands…….I felt a little frustrated trying to interpret it. So meditating on “love”, I reshuffled and drew one more card. It was the King of Wands! I’m so confused!

Answer by Julia M
The court cards in this context can indicate many things, and you’ll have to decide which one it is according to your situation.

(1) They signify actual individuals.
(2) They signify the personality traits of people involved, rather than their situations.

The Queen of wands can indicate the qualities you need to adapt or experiment with before you get that potential love. The second card might indicate your love and his attitude or how you see him. And so on.

Good luck!

Answer by vid
Well, wands generally refer to people that are no nonsense, business minded, and generally smarter people. Perhaps you should be focused more on something that you can give to a job or project than into another person. In addition, this could also be pointing to meeting someone with similar characteristics. Keep in mind, each Court Card in this suit means something different, but I gave you an all around idea of what this suit means for those court cards.

past high priestess reversed,present knight of cups, future justice
I did it online and needed more explanation. My question was what changes can I see in the next few months. Thank you so much. only serious responses please
Thank you for your help. It seemed very relevant to my situation. Will there be better changes because of these cards? This was a love reading about an ex. So the knight of cups could be him.

Answer by WellTraveledProg
Tarot cards don’t “tell” anything. It’s worthless proven-false nonsense.

And that is a serious response, because it’s factual.


Answer by Cheryl
You had a lot of things in your past that you never opened up and talked about with anyone – trust issues. You have things you want to say but it isn’t the time yet, you know things without knowing them. Knight of Cups is a wishy washy kind of a guy – changeable feelings, goes with the crowd, lacks social poise and struggles with appropriate behaviours – he can be dissipated and excessive. It is hard to believe anything he says to you even if he words it like a promise. A new-to-you vehicles is required. Justice is telling you what should be, will be and that if something is for you, it won’t go buy you – also favourable outcomes in legal matters. It represents Libra.

Answer by GenuineReaders
I agree with Cheryl, there were some trust issues in the past , but they could have also occurred because you opened yourself too much. HP reversed could also mean secrets revealed in the past or not hidden too well. Knight of cups may be a literal man in your life or an energy, your current feelings. Maybe you’re in love , maybe you expect to/want to. There is for sure a big change in your future as Justice does not leave things as they used to be. It’s either this or that. Depending on your past actions, you are now getting your feedback. Possible rewards, or the opposite, some challenges you need to face in order to repair a certain unbalanced situation in your life. It affects the matter you have thought at the moment of reading: love, money, work…

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Which way do you read the tarot cards when reading someone else?

For example, say you’re sitting across from that person and facing you, the card is upside down. Would you read it right side up for them or upside down facing you…very confused. thanks

Answer by Light
Right side up for them, of course. Otherwise most of their cards would be upside down and that would be a little unsettling imo.

Did you know that sorcery will not inherit you the Kingdom of God when you die. I say you throw them in the trash and pick up the Bible.

Answer by Graybeard
It doesn’t matter, because tarot card reading is a complete fraud. There is no truth to it at all.

Answer by Nanci
I read them the way I see them. I am the reader. I read left to right then up to down.

Answer by DruidCircle72
There is no right or wrong way to read Tarot cards. I have found from personal experience that if you state aloud (or even to yourself) the direction in which you will interpret the cards then you’re subconscious will adjust to suit the way you want to flip the cards. For example if before you started the reading, you stated, “Upright cards, will face me, Reverse cards will face the person for whom I am reading,” it will be so. Also if the idea of reading reversed cards makes you uncomfortable you can also say something like,”I am not using reverse cards during this reading,” and once again your subconscious will adjust to suit your statement. That does not mean reverse cards will not appear but it sort of acts as a fail safe so any card that appears will be correct in terms of its upright meaning. Hope this helps!

Answer by Scarlet MacBlu
IT’s a personal choice. When I started reading, I liked my seeker to be able to appreciate the cards, so I would deal them so that the bottom of the cards were towards my seeker. Now I feel as though I want to admire my cards and also I find that the artwork is meant to be viewed right-side up and so lends itself to interpretation easier if I can see the artwork as it’s meant to be seen, so now I deal the cards with their bottom edges towards me.
I rarely, if ever, read cards “revered”… that is, if my seeker shuffles the deck in a manner that causes the cards to mingle right-side-up and upside-down, I turn any upside-down cards back right-side-up when reading them unless I get an intuitive signal to read it reversed. That’s just another personal choice I made about my reading style.

Answer by Jay
I believe that as you are the reader, the cards should be facing you, as you’re the one that needs to get the message from them. However, having said that, each reader will develop their own style; no 2 readers will read in the same way.

I have been reading the tarot for almost 17yrs, and trust me, anyone can do it. It’s all about developing your own style and rapport. The other person cannot read the cards, that is why they have come for a reading. They look to you for the answers, not the cards. If they see, for example the Death card facing them, how does this help them as Hollywood and popular culture have instilled a fear of this card, when there is nothing to fear.

So yes, my answer is have them facing you and you interact with the person who requires the reading.


The old occult saying of “Know Thyself” sounds merely like a cliché that seems overused in many circumstances in the occult. What does this term mean? How does knowing yourself and the power of “I” effect you as a person.

I would like to share a short biography of my life as a brief example. I would like to make clear the synopsis of this essay is to essentially show how the Will affects the the magical user through magick, but this is not an summary of playing the victim of ‘poor me.’ There are other people with worse things than what I serve an example of in life, but I only know my experiences from my personal perception.
