Abominable PracticesDeuteronomy 18: 10 – 12 outlines very specifically a number of different kinds of false prophets. God speaks very clearly about His regard for them as well. “There shall not be found among you anyone… who practices witchcraft (the use of magic), or a soothsayer (a diviner), or one who interprets omens (someone who reads signs), or a sorcerer (a magician or wizard), or one who conjures spells, or a medium (a person claiming to be in contact with spirits of the dead), or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.”

Astrology Forbidden to ChristiansFortune telling and astrology are lumped together with other forbidden practices as sorcery and are abominable to God. Christians must not participate in these practices. The Bible is clear. Those who continue doing these things, will find themselves left out of God’s kingdom. “Outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.” See also Revelation 21:8 and Galatians 5: 19 – 21.

the best set to get started with is the rider waite deck,

Answer by Meowbz
i think the crowley tarot is by far the most visually interesting and faithful to the spirit of tarot than any other. it was painted by a woman, frieda harris, when she was past 60 years old, under the direct instruction of a man who had devoted his life to understanding the mythic dimension of reality.

as well as an advanced book by crowley himself, there are many books by other practitioners for the beginner, which will provide you with as much material as you are willing to deal with.

don’t worry about what christians say. they are BDSM spirits in disguise.

enjoy!

Answer by nymaatra_horakte
This is the way to have the cards that are right for you.

Go to a bookshop, look at all the different Tarot decks there are available,

look at them

which ones strike out at you more than the others – they are the ones.

my advice is not to go through the internet, as touching, will give you the feeling of the energy. Let the cards come to you. and look forward to seeing whichever design it is.

Answer by EdgeWitch
There are many designs available with different cultural bents, but I think if you are learning you should start with a basic set like the Marseilles deck or the Swiss tarot deck.
What you should bear in mind is if you choose one of the more complex designs is you are also looking at someone else’s interpretation of the cards. So try and get one with plain pip cards for the minor deck.
It is important that you learn to read the Tarot with an open mind and remember that it is a language of symbols that speak to your subconscious, so keep it simple to start with.
Start by studying the Major Deck and making note of what each one means to you. Do this also with the symbols for the suits. It doesn’t matter what someone else’s vision of the pictures is, think of it like viewing a painting or picture. Let the picture tell the story.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : My tarot cards have different names. Can you help me out?

I bought pagan tarot cards and some of the cards say “novice, initiate, elemental & elder” instead of the usual “page, knight, queen & king” and I was wondering if they meant the same thing but just with “modern” names.

Answer by Nightwind
I’m guessing your deck came with some sort of instruction. You should refer to that. I would not presume they equate, although you might discover they do.

Answer by Elaine M
Yes, the artist redid the names on several cards. The reviews gave it four stars out of five, and said that some of the cards – like the Chariot – actually missed their mark. It’s still a Rider Waite type deck so the meanings should be the same.

Here’s the review off Aeclectic Tarot, they gave it two different reviews and talk about the strenghts and issues with the deck.

Answer by Scarlet MacBlu
I know which deck you mean. I have it, too.

Court cards are, in my opinion, some of the most difficult to learn and interpret. What makes it more frustrating is that some decks, like this one, have completely different court members!!

Ideally, I think the deck is designed to be different from the traditional meanings. I wish I could explain how they are different, but I’m new to that deck myself. The “elemental” is meant to be the most direct manifestation of its element or suit… it’s pure energy. The novice would be a student of the element, powerful but simple and lacking much direction, the initiate would be competency about the element and elder would be the wisest and most complex form of the element, the most focused.

In practice, however, you could probably overlay the traditional meanings over those cards to make it easier… “Elemental” could be the page, “novice” could be the knight, “initiate” could be queen and “elder” could be king.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : For those who read tarot, would you consider a man who constantly shows up as the magician reversed a player?

This guy CONSTANTLY shows up as the magician reversed in my spreads. To the point where it would be 3 times in a row. Could the cards be trying to warn me that he’s not to be trusted?

Answer by Honey
I am not sure that I would read it’s appearance that way. Yes, if it appears many times, this is a very important message. This card, in my opinion, represents people with great confidence and will to use their talents positively. If you feel it representing a man, reversed, consider it may be indicating a male of which is causing a loss in confidence or slowing or stalling a project falling into place for you and under your direction. It is a card of transition often and this may have some effect on your reading or feelings.

I hope you find what you seek.

Answer by Io Evo A
It depends a lot on the question(s) that you are asking, and where it appears in whatever spread you are using.

Reversed this card can have a number of meanings:

The person doesn’t know what they want.
They are unconventional.
They may not be able to give you what you want, they may not be what you want them to be.

It could be that this person lacks proper focus, or direction, or that they have dreams, aspirations and a force of will that will never come together in a positive or productive way.

The magician is an agent of change in accordance with his or her will. The magician applies their will to shape the world around them. This person might not be able to do that. Maybe you are focusing too much on what is wanted or what should be according to your own will (desires) and this cannot come to pass in this case.

This might be a person that marches to the beat of their own drum so to speak and doesn’t have the same values or ideas about relationships that you do. It doesn’t make them a bad person, but it doesn’t make you suited for each other either.

It is very hard to answer a question about tarot without knowing the original question, the intent of the asker, what the spread is, where in the spread the card is.

A tarot card (especially the major arcana) is an archetype, and as such it speaks to the universal unconscious of the reader. For someone else to interpret a reading for you will never be that great.

You have to look into your heart and determine what the card means in the reading based on what you know the card means. The trick is to look beyond what you -want to see-, and see -what simply is-.

Hope this helps.

Blessed Be

Answer by Elaine M
Magician reversed is not using his abilities to the best in a given situation. Someone who should KNOW how to act, but does not act in accordance with that expected of him.

Try this, set the magician card on the table, shuffle the deck and draw three cards to ‘explain’ a little more about the reason this card shows up in reverse. The three should give you a better handle on the main reason he’s identified by this card.
