Is there a website where I can input the Tarot cards that came up in a spread and tell me the interpretation?
I’ve been studying the tarot off and on for a few years now and i have a really difficult time intrepreting an entire spread. Individual card interpretations are easy, but how they relate to each other and the overall meaning of the spread is very difficult for me to determine. Also have you ever noticed that every tarot book seems to have a different order of cards with the celtic cross spread? This is the spread that i have the most difficulty with.
I use the Robin Wood deck, if that helps.
Please help, thank you.
for instance, here is a spread i just did…
1. Judgement (r)
3. Knight of cups (r)
4. 7 of swords
5. Wheel of fortune (r)
6. 10 of cups
7. 9 of pentacles
8. hanged man
9. king of wands
10. ace of cups
What is the overall meaning behind this spread?

throw the book away, would be my first advise.
we call it a reading because the cards tell you something.
you need to learn to listen to what the cards are telling you. and they will tell you what they represent in the locations that they fall into. there are traditional meanings associated with the cards. but they cannot explain or cover every possibility.
seriously listen to the cards. meditate with them. simply spend some time each day looking at the picture and the cards will take on meanings of their own for you.
do this and you will find your readings becoming more accurate.

There are literally hundreds of Decks and thousands of spreads. Each can pass information or intuitions to the person using the deck. That makes remote readings difficult or impossible.
I use several decks and a multicircle spread for all of them. If your spread is not working for you after years, I’d move on to some others.

I believe there is, but you have to pay

I believe that you are probably putting too much thought into it. Do you read the little book? If you do throw it away and start the whole process over again. Also you might look at a different deck. I personally love the Robin Wood Deck but there are others that I have a hard time connecting with.
The reading of the cards is a highly personal craft. Certain cards invoke meanings for some people but not for everyone. You could get a technical reading possibly on the net but I think you would be better off working through this on your own. If you are reading for yourself you should probably stop right there since it’s a very iffy game.
Either way if you want advice and/ or a lesson or two email me and I will go through what I teach. I have never had a problem getting people to the point where they can read.
By the way you can’t get a meaning from your cards unless you tell us the spread you used. I’m guessing it’s the celtic cross spread but not really sure.
If you wish you can email it all to me and I can give you my interpretation but it won’t be as good as you doing your own.
Do you believe in tarot cards from the store?
I did a tarot card reading on myself and its all negative comments, feedback.

How can a card tell you about your life and future?! I mean c’mon really! Are you going to base your feelings and decisions on what some pictures on a card ‘say’. Live your life one day at a time whatever happened or whatever happens is just life!
How do tarot cards work?
Where do tarot cards get thier power from? I started using and all my predictions came out to be true. How do the cards know that? Is it magic?

Tarot works by helping you make a connection with your subconscious. When you shuffle the cards you are doing a type of instant meditation. Then you lay out the cards and begin to interpret the pictures. There are many types of decks, the most commonly used is known as the Ryder-Waite deck. The type you use depends on which ones seem to work the best for you. I have heard many different theories about how to handle the cards but for me the one thing that has helped me the most was this advise. When doing a reading, don’t try to analyze your answer. Say the first thing that comes to your mind without editing. Also, the tarot does not tell the future. It provides insight into the things that are happening in the life of the questioner and helps them to make an educated decision. Last but not least, anyone can read the tarot. The key is to be open to that little voice inside of you. If you are making accurate predictions with the cards you should be able to do so without the cards. It is just a matter of tapping into that part of the mind with that ability. Good luck in all of your future endeavors.

Tarot is a psychological key. Like Gestalt…. but with a pre-set number of paintings (on cards) that are designed to access our psychological archetypes. http://www.amazon.com/Tarot-Way-Life-Jungian-Approach/dp/087728878X/ref=pd_bbs_sr_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1231162268&sr=8-3 Here is a book that approaches the tarot in a traditional Jungian-psychological fashion.

there is more than one theory. according to some there is angel presiding Tarot divination, his name is Hru. by that ‘theory’ every time you do tarot divination, you are communicating with that angel. some consider this angel to be greek god Hermes, and other call him by egyptian god name of Thoth.
there are also ‘theories’ saying that by using tarot we are actually communicating with our unconscious mind, which is connected to global unconscious. it s like tarot is modem and global unconscious is internet, connected to everyones unconscious mind- personal data bases. look up K.G. Jung and his theories about unconscious (he is one of the fathers of psychology).
there are many other theories, i believe theres as much of them as there is tarot readers.
usually they dont exclude one another, i believe that truth is somewhere in between

In my life, they work as a meditation aid. By two years old, we already have more knowledge than will work in any given situation. Knowledge that you can fall down stairs doesn’t help much when you are trying to cross the street. The older we get, the more true this phenom of holding more knowledge than you can use in any given circumstance becomes, all the way to the times when everyone is richer if you keep your knowledge to yourself.
As I do a tarot meditation, I open my mind to random associations and let the cards stimulate my knowledge and emotional stores to help me get in touch with the lines I can most readily manage in the given circumstance.
