What is another use for tarot cards?
My friend and I practice tarot, and we’ve both gotten well enough at giving readings. She had gotten the idea that there was more to the practice, though, than just readings. I figured it was an interesting concept, and was wondering if anyone else knew anything about tarot aside from readings, card games, and the history/study of tarot. Any new information would be appreciated.

Tarots is an actual game. Mainly popular in Europe before someone start using them for divination early in the 20th century.
Sorry, I misunderstood. Some other uses would be leveling a rocking table. Making a house of cards. Cleaning stuff off you shoes. A bookmark perhaps.

A book called “What Tarot Can Do for You” by Barbara Moore is a good primer on some of the uses of tarot. There’s also tarot card games, similar to rummy, that you can play. Or you could frame favorite cards and hang them as artwork. If you trim the cards, this can be even more visually striking.
You can use cards for a lot of things, like magickal spells, personal psychoanalysis of the self, mediating arguments, solving problems/making choices etc.

Which tarot cards are used in the circus/carnival?
I need some info on the cards and meaning of some cards and readings, for something I’m writing, so I was wondering, which tarot cards are used in circus or carnivals? I mean, I am familiar with the fact there are lots of different tarot cards, so I’m wondering. Thank you.

I don’t think there is a deck exclusive to carnivals. Rider Waite is the most common.
Here are a bunch of different decks:

I have a question about tarot cards?
Recently my daughter started learning about tarot cards. Today, I found her tarot cards wrapped in a piece of cloth, lying in a bed of rosemary leaves in her jewelry box. I have no idea what this means. Does anyone familiar with tarot cards know? We didn’t have any rosemary leaves in the house, which means she went to the store and bought them (I found the container in her nightstand).
Can anyone shed some light on this?
Answer by Godless
It’s a “showing respect for the cards” kind of thing. When I was into that kind of stuff I went out and bought cloth special to wrap them in. I’d be more concerned with whether she thinks they actually work or whether it’s just for fun.
Why are you going through her stuff?
Answer by yyyyzz (wise)
Tarot card have to be personalized and “cleaned”. They are an extension of you psychic. Should be left out on the ground at night under a full moon and if possible rained upon. (earth, wind, “fire” & water.) The cards itself mean very little, they are just there to kick start your subconsciousness. Just tell her it is not a toy, not to be taken lightly and to be used with maturity. And a lot of study – many books and years.

Many readers feel it is important to treat the deck as a sacred object. I don’t, but then I stopped reading Tarot after my late husband, also my high priest, committed suicide.
Rosemary is traditionally for remembrance. Perhaps this is her way to concentrate on remembering all she has learned about the Tarot. To take it seriously, it takes a lot of studying the symbols and their historic meanings, not just the little booklet packaged with them.
You should be comforted that she’s taking her study seriously. The ones who are just playing around are the most in danger from scaring themselves with an “unlucky” reading. The Tarot deals with some very serious issues, and of course they can be scary at times. Overcoming that fear and learning to look at all sides of an issue is a valuable growing experience.

She loves her cards.
She is bonding with her cards.
She is treating her deck with utter respect.
Support her and her cards and she will love you more.
Violate her cards and she will become very upset.
