How can I do a self tarot card reading?
I have a tarot deck, and I know how to do a horse shoe spread, and the celtic cross. I want to do a reading on myself, but I just don’t know how to go about it.
Answer by Tahuti Reincarnate
Well, I think one of the best newer ways to learn the meanings of the cards, is to go to facade dot com and try out their free tarot readings. Do this each day, and you’ll start learning the cards. If they don’t have your specific deck, do it with the Waite deck, as it relates to almost all modern decks.
Answer by Crystal R
That’s easy. Use the card that most represents yourself as the Significator and read it like you would anyone else. Of course you’d be the one askng the question, shuffling the deck and cutting the cards as well as doing the lay out.
Answer by Crystal clear
It’s often hard to be objective when reading for yourself. Try to look at it as if you were reading for someone else, so that your own emotions, doubts, etc. don’t get in your way. Perhaps you may want to start with doing simple three card spreads for yourself a few times a week, recording your interpretations of them and see how that goes – how accurate they are for you. There is a lot to reading a Celtic cross spread as a whole, and I have a hard time doing that spread for myself sometimes.

all of the previous answers are good. if the cards seem unclear, you might try using runes or even a bit of chiromancy just in case
What cards does an oracle card deck usually consist of?
For example, a tarot card deck consists of the major arcana and the minor, which is the 4 suits. Well what about an oracle deck?
Answer by robin_lionheart
There’s no standard set of cards in an oracle card deck, they could contain any number of cards depicting any kind of scenes. Such decks often have themes, such as angels or fairies, but individual cards could represent anything from Music to Dolphins to Outer Space.
Technically, tarot decks have 5 suits: four suits of the minor arcana, and a fifth suit of the major arcana. In card games using tarot decks, the major arcana serve as a permanent trump suit.

Tarot cards, Deck: Mandala new beginnings. Card: The emperor?
I picked The emperor card in my relationships area, what does that mean?
Answer by saggirl
this is what I found hope it helps
The Emperor card is the “Who’s the boss?” card. It is an important question. The meaning of the card includes being in control over your environment, your body, your temper, your instincts, your love life. This is not the time to give into the unconscious, not the time to let yourself be controlled by the wants and needs of others. It is a card that gives the Querent permission to be aggressive, brave, bold and in command. The Emperor could be a father or father figure, leader or employer, either a demanding tyrant or a charismatic king. If the card stands for the Querent, he/she should think about whether their Empire has become an unwelcome chore and if it has, are they now a bad leader, demanding, unreasonable, unhappy. It might be time to abdicate the throne

Saggirl…. that’s a GREAT answer! good for you
Answer by Rev. Lynn D.
The Emperor speaks of control over yourself and others. It is important to take notice in any relationship if your partner is controlling or has an inflexible attitude. It is equally as important to look within and observe your own attitudes and behavior to see if you have those issues in relationships.
The best relationships are those that are based on equal partners who give each other freedom to be themselves and we make decisions based on discussion and compromise.
Answer by SunS
emperor in any reading is interesting because of its focuses on power and new birth or growthThe Emperor is a very strong card because its main focus is power. All of the cards have a focus in power in one way or another, but the Emperor card does not derive power through anything but power itself. This card signifies control, aggressiveness, bravery, and
The Emperor follows the Empress which is the womb, mother, and bearer of the new.
