A fantasy

Suggestion by J-Boy
playing are missing most of the deck. Not only do this exclude the Knight of each suit but the entire Major Arcana which represent large change or emotions. So you can’t use playing cards, it would be like trying to look through a telescope with only half a lens.

Whatever you want them to be

Suggestion by pangel
Rogue that would just be like reading the book
best way is to use your intuition sweetie
say what you see … look deeper into the card
i could do a whole reading with one card when i do that
there are so much in them it is amazing

what colours … what do the colours mean to you
what pictures … what does that mean to you
what is in the background .. the foreground
are there any symbols ?

say what you see and what you feel it means then portray that to the person you are reading and what you feel those words mean to that person
good luck xx

p.s what type of deck ?
ok scrap all that then i just realised you are using playing cards ??

I believe there’s a site called http://tarot.com

I don’t know sites, really. But, if you go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/tarot You’ll find some.

Tarot cards are about as dangerous as a regular deck of cards… AKA, beware of the papercuts!

Good luck.

Lay them in the fireplace!

Suggestion by winged_mami
type in tarot card reading in the search engine . i dont wanna scare you or anything but Tarot cards are dangerous. My sister and her friend would do reading to eachother all the time. My sis isnt afraid of anything but since she started doing that she told me she would feel someone in her room. And that she saw this lady it was scary to me. my husband told me not to mess with that. But it can be dangerous cause just like the ouija board it can open up portals.

Tarot Cards?
I wanted to get a deck of tarot cards and wanted to know if there is a difference in the different decks? If so, which is better. Where is the best place to get a tarot deck, and a book explaining what each card means?

Suggestion by Stormwind
Find a deck that’s appealing to you. That’s the main thing. You can be recommended tons of different types, but if you don’t like the layout, you’re not gonna use it to your full ability. As for learning the meanings, meditate on a single card for a few days to divine its meaning and symbolism, and work that into your own method of using the deck.

Suggestion by jolb73
I think your name says it all!

Suggestion by Gazoo
No difference. They are all absurd.

Suggestion by Deacon Knight
raider-waite is the most commonly used, and any deck comes with the book–try www.azuregreen,com

    Go to Spencers Gifts or Lady Of The Lake or some other spirtual store and they’ll give you a book on that or they’ll help you as best they can. If they don’t then you can get them fired.

  2. Tree Hugger says

    There are many different spreads depending on your purpose. You can even make up your own spread that feels right to you.

    Peace )O(

    their bad luck stay away if u pull something up who knows u could make something happened that wouldnt of happened outherweise

    inore the ewwwiilllll part its a joke but i think their bad luck and ive never used them
    then again im not a wicca either

  4. efilnekcufecin says

    with the traditional deck, you lay the first six cards in a cross formation and the last 4 cards to the right of the cross, to insure an unbiased reading.

  5. psychic-junkie says

    If you are using Tarot cards as an oracle, you may be more inclined to read card meanings and use spreads. But if using Tarot Cards as a tool for Psychic Ability you would be less likely to hold to any hard and fast guide lines. I’m a profession psychic and use Tarot Cards in a random way. In 25 years of professional readings I’ve never used any ‘meanings or spreads’ of tarot cards from any books.

    So if you want to develop ‘Psychic Ability’ throw the books and guidelines away and let the images inspire you.

    I believe we are all psychic, but for the majority the gift or the belief has been long knocked out of them. Educated out is another way of looking at it. Many professional psychics have grown up in a psychic friendly environment. Perhaps a grand-parent or parent with the knowledge has helped bring the extra sense out in the open and encouraged its use. But there are as many practicing psychics who have not had the benefit of caring psychic guidance and who have still managed to develop and hone this natural extra sense. The Psychic Sense.

    To tap in to it more you can go to my free develop-psychic-ability page here: http://www.psychic-junkie.com/develop-psychic-ability.html

    But on the other hand, if you want to use the Tarot as an oracle, a form of divination that needs no real ‘psychic ability’, then keep the books and use the meanings and spreads if you prefer.

    Here is a free download demo for a great Tarot program. To keep the size of the demo manageable it contains the Rider/Waite deck, the actual program will have 10 complete decks. This Demo version of Tarot is a full working copy for 30 days. So you get 30 days to study meanings and spreads! http://www.free-tarot-download-demo.wotsnext.com

  6. kak is "how" in Russia says

    Check out http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/reviews.shtml it has reviews of tarot decks and sample pics. Just look around and find one that you just connect with and that’s the one for you. There’s really no deck that’s better than another, it’s just a matter of if you feel drawn to a particular deck. Most decks have a little booklet explaining what the cards mean and information about that particular deck, but you could find a book with general tarot information anywhere. Myself, I’ve got the Spiral tarot deck because I really liked the artwork.

  7. The Prophet ENSLAVEMENTALITY says

    Not much difference in the meanings of the cards in different decks.I suppose the choice of artwork is a matter of personal taste.I started off with the Rider-Waite deck, but I have several now. You can get them from any bookstore that sells New Age books.Tarot cards are supposed to work better if someone gives them to you as a gift.

  8. Mike A says

    Tarot cards, confused??

    They are a phony. Buy a mocha latte, relax and consider all the beauty found in creation, then consider if your Creator is speaking to your heart.

  9. floydbeme says

    PLEASE do not get into the dark lies of SATAN.
    The Bible clearly states that we are not to seek out fortune tellers (seers), soothesayers, etc.
    Psalm 118:8 states that we are to seek the counsel of God and not put our complete trust in man, because man will mislead you. AND man is misled by the Devil. Which is why the Devil (a/k/a Satan, Lucifer, Beelzebub, etc.) is known as the “Great Deceiver’.

  10. Wiccan~Momma says

    I agree with what someone else said. Find a deck that is appealing to you. The deck you choose needs to reflect some part of you personally. If they don’t… They probably won’t work for you. The different decks don’t really have different “meanings”, but reading your deck can be easier or harder depending on which deck you choose. Some decks are more complex. Most beginners choose to start with a normal deck or a “beginner” deck. I didn’t start with an “easy” deck, however, and I’m doing just fine. It all depends on what you want to do. And all the decks I’ve ever seen came with a small book that tells you what every card means. You can also buy something online if you want a book that will explain the cards better and maybe even give you some spread ideas.

    I went to a couple of different shops because there are many different decks — I picked out the design I liked and that was that.

    They all come with the instructions inside the box.

  12. Carnac says

    One way is to buy them all and do scientifically controlled experiments to evaluate the effect of different types of cards on your individual divination style.

    A better alternative is to use whatever brains you may have between your ears to consider whether pretty pictures printed on scraps of cardboard drawn at random from a deck really has any relevance to your life. Think about it, it ain’t rocket science.

  13. milomax says

    There can be some differences in the decks – some cards are illustrated and interpreted slightly differently from deck to deck. But those who said find one that appeals to you and start with that one are correct. I chose mine because I had seen the artwork on several sites and fell in love with it.

    If nothing else, book stores like Barnes and Noble and Waldenbooks have tarot decks and books. You can go online to Amazon.com and get them, too. I bought the Osho Zen deck and book for a friend at Amazon.
