When doing a tarot reading what does it mean when a relatively positive card is in a negative placement?
In the book I have says when a favorable card falls into an unfavorable position the meaning of the card does not remain valid.It indicates the shadows of the arcacna. I’ve been trying to find out more on the internet and am having a hard time :(:(:(
Answer by Rhode
It depends on the card and the placement, but I’ve NEVER had a reading where I considered a card not valid just because it seemed incongruous with its meaning.
Just because a book says something, doesn’t mean it’s true. The Tarot is a method of fortune-telling that channels one’s own insight through images and names.
I usually take such cards to have negative implications of their initial meanings.
For example, if I have a Sun card in a position that is in a negative place, I interpret that as empty, transient happiness… The kind you might receive from money or power. You may feel happy for a time but it isn’t real. The Star card in such a place might mean laziness or giving up – The Star represents a time to rest; instead you might be resting where you don’t necessarily need to, or just downright giving up.

There is a very good rule in tarot, especially for beginners. Keep it simple. This sounds like a really crappy spread. Try a simpler spread, or simply ignore the positional meanings per se and read your spread based on how the energy of each card modifies the other. Too many esoteric, trying to be too deep spreads out there can confuse the beginner. Keep it simple, and tarot will speak to you in ways you’ve never imagined.
Answer by Rev. Lynn D.
I use the Celtic cross spread and there are no unfavorable positions.
Try finding a new spread and take the meanings of the cards for what they are.
I did a tarot reading for 2012 and got the following cards?
I asked what is coming up for me in 2012 in a four card spread (one at the base and three over it) and got the following cards: Death at the base with the Prince of Pentacles, the Ace of Pentacles and the 10 of Pentacles over it. How would you interpret this? Thanks!

Spirit Creatures—How They Affect Us
Do angels help people?
How have wicked spirits influenced humans?
Do we need to fear wicked spirits?
GETTING to know a person usually involves learning something about his family. Similarly, getting to know Jehovah God includes becoming better acquainted with his angelic family. The Bible calls the angels “sons of God.” (Job 38:7) So, what is their place in God’s purpose? Have they played a role in human history? Do angels affect your life? If so, how?
2 The Bible refers to angels hundreds of times. Let us consider a few of these references to learn more about angels. Where did angels come from? Colossians 1:16 says: “By means of him [Jesus Christ] all other things were created in the heavens and upon the earth.” Hence, all the spirit creatures called angels were individually created by Jehovah God through his firstborn Son. How many angels are there? The Bible indicates that hundreds of millions of angels were created, and all of them are powerful.—Psalm 103:20.*
3 God’s Word, the Bible, tells us that when the earth was founded, “all the sons of God began shouting in applause.” (Job 38:4-7) Angels thus existed long before humans were created, even before the creation of the earth. This Bible passage also shows that angels have feelings, for it says that they “joyfully cried out together.” Note that “all the sons of God” rejoiced together. At that time, all the angels were part of a united family serving Jehovah God.
ANGELIC SUPPORT AND PROTECTION
“My own God sent his angel and shut the mouth of the lions.”—Daniel 6:22
4 Ever since they witnessed the creation of the first humans, faithful spirit creatures have shown keen interest in the growing human family and in the outworking of God’s purpose. (Proverbs 8:30, 31; 1 Peter 1:11, 12) With the passing of time, however, the angels observed that most of the human family turned away from serving their loving Creator. No doubt this saddened the faithful angels. On the other hand, whenever even one human returns to Jehovah, “joy arises among the angels.” (Luke 15:10) Since angels have such deep concern for the welfare of those who serve God, it is no wonder that Jehovah has repeatedly used angels to strengthen and protect his faithful servants on earth. (Hebrews 1:7, 14) Consider some examples.
5 Two angels helped the righteous man Lot and his daughters to survive the destruction of the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by leading them out of that area. (Genesis 19:15, 16) Centuries later, the prophet Daniel was thrown into a lions’ pit, but he escaped harm and said: “My own God sent his angel and shut the mouth of the lions.” (Daniel 6:22) In the first century C.E., an angel freed the apostle Peter from prison. (Acts 12:6-11) Moreover, angels supported Jesus at the start of his earthly ministry. (Mark 1:13) And shortly before Jesus’ death, an angel appeared to Jesus and “strengthened him.” (Luke 22:43) What a comfort that must have been for Jesus at those very important times in his life!
6 Today, angels no longer appear visibly to God’s people on earth. Although invisible to human eyes, God’s powerful angels still protect his people, especially from anything spiritually harmful. The Bible says: “The angel of Jehovah is camping all around those fearing him, and he rescues them.” (Psalm 34:7) Why should those words be of great comfort to us? Because there are dangerous wicked spirit creatures who want to destroy us! Who are they? Where do they come from? How are they trying to harm us? To find out, let us briefly consider something that happened at the start of human history.
SPIRIT CREATURES WHO ARE OUR ENEMIES
7 As we learned in Chapter 3 of this book, one of the angels developed a desire to rule over others and thus turned against God. Later this angel became known as Satan the Devil. (Revelation 12:9) During the 16

Although I am a believer in future telling and the supernatural, I do not believe in Tarot cards and neither should you. A person can literally interpret that as anything, it is all interpretation, which is why Christianity is such a huge mess….
Answer by PeterSaulMohammed
Shuffle your deck again and see what happens. I will consult my magic 8 ball to see what it says of your hand.
What does it mean when you draw the Hanged Man, The Judgement, and the Death card in a Tarot reading?
I did a simple 3 card draw, which was a Love, Mood, and Career Reading for the Day. Respectively, the cards that came up were The Hanged Man, The Judgement, and Death cards. I didn’t like the feeling these cards brought to me. Any Ideas on what it could mean???
Note: I dont do these often, I am really just curious.

Answer by Jay
it means when you shuffled the cards those ones landed on top.
Answer by the REAL truth
it means you have the belief that the tarot cards are guided by an intelligence. yet you do not believe in God the Creator of the universe.
you have great faith to believe what you do
and although there are countless variations on the tarot deck, you have picked the one that is right!!!
Answer by …
The hanged man represents sacrifice, normally for the sake of gaining something. So either you’ll sacrifice your love for someone, or you’ll sacrifice something for your love.
Judgement represents a major, non destructive change-this will happen to your mood, I guess. It also represents a cleansing and such.
Death represents rebirth. How it applies to your career I have no idea.
Mind you, I don’t actually believe any of these things. It’s just interesting.
