I’d get rid of them my friend. It’s playing with demons.
Answer by Avery Blaise
Dude I would stop with tarot cards if I were you. There is no best set of cards that come from the devil. The best can only be worst. Stop while you can.
Answer by ~*Μα’ϊϊἧɡαἧ*~
There really is no “best” deck…they all go on your intuition…NOT demons.
I have the Guilded TAROT. Beautiful imagery…but experienced people will suggest the Rider-Waite deck, merely because its better for beginners…not too complicated.
Hope I was of better help than the others who live in fear.
Can i use tarot cards that have been owned by someone else before me? (Secondhand from friend) Thanks!?
An older friend of the family used to read tarot cards but she doesn’t anymore, someone told me that tarot cards should be a gift but can i use her old ones to start reading with or do i need to purchance a new pack? Help please.
Answer by ptolomy
yes..some say the best cards are given to you, not bought. I bought mine and they are great…
Try them out for yourself and see.

To play with the tarot cards there is no problem. If you are a believer, then there can be issues.
First, you must have permission of the person who used to use them. Without that, nothing will come from your readings but darkness. Second, you should cleanse & sanctify the cards. Salt, crystals, etc. See your local shop that would supply such things as the tarot cards & they will have what is needed on hand. Third, you need to orient the cards to yourself through meditation and request their help in divining the future. Without the decks’ assistance & willingness, again, nothing will come but darkness. Blessed be.

Use them, enjoy them!
There are no ‘rules’ about having to only use a deck given to you. There are no ‘rules’ about letting someone else touch your cards.
There are no rules, what & how you do with tarot is of your own design. DO what you feel is right and good.
We all have our own way of handling and reading cards.
Answer by scarab
The tarot cards work a bit like a map, they are very personalized in their energy signiture. While you certainly can read from their cards you will need to shake the etch-a-sketch and wipe the slate clean before you start. Otherwise you will end up with their map and symbols and not your own. It can be a bit confusing. So you may want to find something that you really resonate with (a cloth, bag or box) that you can put the cards in for a while to tune them to you. You can also get sage if you so wish and burn a bit of it as a cleaning tool. Simply the act of handling and working with the cards will tune them to your energies too.
As you work with them and learn to read them ( I recommend getting a really good book for the deck before you start) it will become more and more apparent what they are trying to tell you. They are just a tool that functions as a mirror. So the more clearly we see the image in the mirror the easier it is to interpret the symbols 🙂
Good luck and enjoy!
How to experience more with Tarot Cards since I’m a beginner?
I am not very experienced with each Tarot card since I have only read a Tarot Reading book for beginners. That’s why I feel a bit confused reading for anyone else.
How should I practice reading to understand a card’s meaning deeper for each situation? How did you start it?
I’m 20 and very serious about exploring the mystic world, I don’t want to take Tarot reading as a job, I would only do the reading if someone really needs it and I would never charge so to collect their info and to pretend to understand the cards is not my reference. thanx LD anyways.

The art of Tarot reading involves the skill known as “cold-reading”. It involves fishing for information by paying close attention to everything the victim says, and asking vague questions to try to get the victim to reveal facts about their life. This can be done before or during the Tarot reading.
Once enough information is known, the Tarot practitioner simply invents meanings for each card that comes up, and tailors the meanings to the information they’ve gained from the victim. This is why you will see Tarot practitioners flipping over cards like Death and explaining that it does not mean the victim is going to die, but instead has more than one meaning. If you’re vague enough about what the cards are ‘predicting’, you can never be wrong.
In short, the victim gets what they wanted to hear, and the Tarot practitioner gets their money. It’s a simple con job.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but that’s what Tarot cards are used for. You cannot tell the future with pieces of cardboard with ink on them. You can, however, trick people out of their money.

lithiumdeuteride (LD)’s answer has some merit, but may not be particularly helpful for a beginner like yourself.
Tarot cards are one of many non-chemical methods of altering the way we perceive reality and possibility. If a person needs to break free of limited perceptions and explore a greater range of internal and external options, these techniques can be useful.
Focusing on the ‘textbook’ meanings of cards, though (as LD suggests), is probably not as effective as attuning yourself to your own intuition around the images. A very skilled reader of my acquaintance will introduce a card by simply describing the image and their own personal interpretation of it, implicitly inviting the subject to explore its meaning for themselves.
You might try doing your own self-readings, as a way of ‘getting to know’ the cards (and your own feelings about them), then expand the scenario to include someone else almost as a ‘co-reader’. The reading is an intimate act and requires great sensitivity, if not extra-sensory perception, so it will stretch your abilities.
Many (if not most) people seeking tarot readings are not as naive as LD assumes, and they do not attribute mystical powers to the cards. The reader provides an opportunity to see the world through new eyes, emphasizing intuition and creativity. The process allows us to remove our hyper-rational blinders and see things we may be in the habit of avoiding.

this is just an intro for your consciousness.. take note, you must positively answer these questions before undergoing
even small practices.. i hope this advice would help.. i won’t answer your questions to make sure..
Answer by sweety_atspacecase0
this was the advice I got when I started, it worked for me.
I would make sure to get the energy of the cards,
practice feeling for a card and pulling it out of the deck without looking.
practice by asking a question that can be answered in one card,
then split the deck,
then hold each half in each hand,
feel what hand has the answer,
keep the answer hand cards, set the others down,
split the deck again, and repeat till you have only one card left.
this method helped me feel the energy from the cards, so that I would know the cards that matched the person I was reading.
really get to know the meanings of the cards,
there are many interpretations in different decks,
I researched each of the major arcana separately.
the minor arcana,
once you understand the system, its easy,
the minor arcana is set up as a blending of 2 things,
the number, and the suit.
so, each number has a meaning, and it is the same for all of that number across all the suits.
each suit has a meaning that is common to all the cards in that suit.
the problem is that someone will read a description and it will be correct, but there may be more to the cards that might be missed.
