How to read tarot cards?
I’m learning how to read tarot cards. Tarot cards have different meanings if they’re placed right side up or reversed. If you’re giving a tarot reading to someone else, is the “reversed” card meaning it’s reversed for the person you’re reading it to, or is it reversed when you see it?

Oh that’s a real toughy, that is.
Answer by CC
When the reader accepts the deck that has been shuffled by the questioner, the reader makes sure to maintain the correct orientation of the deck so as to properly read the “reversed” cards, as they would appear “reversed” to the questioner.

Reversed = opposite meaning.

They are reversed to your perspective. If a card is reversed it’ll look upside down to you.
What do these 3 tarot cards mean together?
I was doing a reading about a relationship regarding how someone feels about me, and it was supposed to be only one card but these 3 jumped out… The star, the empress, and then the five of wands. Thanks for your help 🙂
Answer by Tea
The Star card says that you probably already have a good idea about how this person feels about you…it’s staring you right in the face. Your gut feeling is right.
The Empress suggests that this person finds you very attractive and/or charming.
However, the 5 of Wands indicates that this person may think you can be a little difficult or confrontational sometimes.
Buying tarot cards which and where ?
I’ve always wanted to learn about tarot cards and I would like to make a move and buy some.
Which brand should I buy ?
Where do I get them ?
Should I get a seperate book to learn how to use them ?

Go to http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/ as it has a galore of various decks and previews with summaries and reviews. You can browse the decks to find one that feels right to you. You can connect through the colors or imagery of the cards.
This site also has links to where you can buy the deck you choose.
The rider waite version is one of the most common decks. However, it is better to use a deck that you feel personally drawn to in order to have a deeper connection and greater results.
Some people rely on the books, while others never look at them. It is your choice. I like to have the accompanying book available for my reference when dealing with a new deck, but that is my personal preference. Most decks if bought new will come with the book already.

Find a bookshop or an on-line supplier, look at the pictures until you find one with to which you feel drawn and buy it. It should be fairly easy to get hold of some and more places sell them. Books are usually included, though sometimes they are sold separately. Books give you ideas on what spreads ( pattern of drawing and laying down the cards and what each one means in that position) to use. Check whether the cards you choose all have pictures as some packs have picture cards plus symbols as in playing cards, others are all pictorial. I think the latter give you more ideas as you are meant to use your own intuition and not simply rely on the meaning given by any accompanying book.
Just one point though, it is not easy to read for yourself and do not use them as a crutch for living your life. They are an aid, a tool, not designed to tell you what to do and take away your free will. Plus, if you read for others, make sure you tell them it is for entertainment only and that readings are a guide to the future, not a definite answer as to what will happen.

If you are new to the Tarot you should start out with a good classic deck as a base in learning. The Rider-Waite deck is such a deck.
Never buy a deck you haven’t held in your hand–box and all is okay. You should feel that it is right for you. You can do this at many of the large book stores.
Take the deck home and begin, but if the instructions that come with the deck confuse you, don’t give up, return to the store and get a book that is specific to the classic meanings and layouts.

I agree with XXXX its best if you go out to buy it, hold it in your hands go through many of them till one feels just right for you. These cards will always be with you so its best to pick wisely.
Some bookstores carry them in the new age/metaphysical section of the store.
