Answer by Amy Geddon
Stolen credit card.
Answer by Upasakha Jason
It’s not a single card. But if there were, I would suggest 8 of Swords. For major arcana, I would look to the Hanged Man reverse, or the Devil with Justice.
Answer by TheMadProfessor
The Eight of Swords could be interpreted as such in the right layout…the swords sticking into the ground around the woman could be viewed as representing the bars of a prison.
How do u read playing cards like tarot cards?
Ever since i was little i always wanted to read tarot cards but i like to be different so imma read playing cards. How do i do it
Answer by Chipmunk
There are two main kinds of cartomancy – one is tarot, the other is gypsy and gypsy is often more associated with playing cards, however there is a few variations on how you can use for tarot. Personally, I prefer the simple, no fuss version.
Cups = hearts
Wands = diamonds
Swords = spades
Coins = clubs
(some variations will have coins and wands swapped over, I only visualise wands/cups as light and swords/coins as dark and more similar to each other – however it’s entirely up to you)
And from there your aces to kings are as always. Because it’s not the “natural” way to read tarot (aka not tarot cards) then more than ever, each card and suit can be designated as you feel the most comfortable with and can “tune” each suit to what you feel it most corresponds to.

Are those tarot cards things in stores money making scams or real?
At barnes and nobles they sell those things. They’re like 2 dices roll them and than match the result with one of the tarot cards to determine the future. Are they money making scams or real? P.S when people at my school tried them they said its just poker cards with pictures printed on to trick you. If you think they’re real don’t go booming it’ll tell you the day you’ll die or I’m a fortune teller.
Answer by TR
The tarot cards are not a scam themselves. They’re a deck of cards that are supposed to let you tell your fortune, but that’s an old wives tale. They don’t really do anything but possibly provide some entertainment. On the other hand, if someone wants to give you a tarot card reading in exchange for money, then that certainly is a scam.
Answer by Tukmyhamster
No they’re not real. Imagine what the world would be like if there was any easy way to tell the future (or any way at all actually).
Those sort of things are just for entertainment, not be taken seriously.

When your friends said that they were poker cards with pictures printed on, they were not far from the truth.
Tarot cards were created in the mid 15th century Italy for the Milanese court. The consist of a standard pack of Latin suited playing cards (these were the first suits in Europe being cups, coins, swords, and batons) and a fifth suit of picture cards. These extra cards took as their theme, not an occult philosophy or magical symbols, but a Christian triumph procession – hence their early name of trionfi, meaning triumphs and from which we get our word trump. It was the invention of tarot that marked the invention of trumps in card games – and that is what they were invented for, a family of card games that continues to be played throughout continental Europe to this day!
It was not until the end of the 18th century that a Parisian occultist, Antoine Court de Gebelin, picked up the cards and, ignorant of their actual origin, invented one about their being from Egypt and having a use for fortune telling.
Without an occult origin, fortune telling with tarot is no different in kind from fortune telling with tea leaves, dominoes, or knuckle bones – and just as hard to take seriously.
In as much as they are selling the cards as a way to learn the future, then I would say that they are scam. But, keep in mind that they can be used for some great card games and any game that has spread througout a continent and survived for nearly 600 years is going to be good – no scam!

No, this is BS and a bastardization of the true meaning of the Tarot (which is based in the Jewish Cabala originally). Dice and tarot are a stupid combo.
