View Full Version : Tarot Cards
I was wondering if someone could advise me. I really want to learn how to use Tarot Cards and do readings.
I mentioned this to a cousin of mine and she said that she had so many bad experiences from using them that she had to have her house blessed and a priest to take the cards away.
Not sure now, and just wondered if anyone had any experience with them ?
I read the tarot, will reply after ive fed my cupcake
Firstly psychic awareness is needed to read the tarot. Techincally anyone can pick up a book and read what the cards mean, but to give "proper" readings being psychic helps.
Learn who your spirit guides are, acknowlegde them, you must learn to "open up" and "close down" after psychic activity or it will leave you "open" or "on" when you dont wish to be.
You could either buy a book on tarot cards or go to lessons (I had lessons, along with psychic developement lessons)
But ultimatley the cards mean what you see them to mean, this makes each card personal to you. For example: I have 2 cards which mean baby boy or girl, they do not "mean" that in books, but for me it works.
Its a bit like mediumship, once youve built up a relationship with your guides you learn a langauge together (a bit like pictionary) where they will show you something and you know what that means.
Example: they show you some rosary beads, and you know the person they have with them is catholic.
As with a set of tarot cards, do not buy them for yourself they should be a gift (get DH/Friend to buy them for you) you should pick a pack that call to you. The rider waite pack is a simple pack to use, and most teachers teach from this pack (I learnt with this pack) as you know more about tarot you could find yourself a more personal pack. For example my mum loves cats, and has a pack thats cat themed.
The cards all have meaning, so do the cusps (wands, swords, pentacles and cups) they have many extended means, the colours have their own meanings, the more of one cusp you have again the more it means (it can get complicated)
I hope all this makes sense :smile: good luck if you decide to learn to read :thumb:
ps: forgot to mention, theres lots of spreads that can be used, where each card drawn from the pack has a place and is in referance to something ie: the future, now, the past. Some people like to make up their own spreads (I do) its all about personal preferance. :smile:
Don't let someone elses bad experience put you off.
Thanks Gina, makes sense as I don't think she probably knew how to open up or close herself to "activity". From what she said anyway.
You're right Jules, I've wanted to learn for a long time now, so I'm going to go for it.
Thanks Girls, will let you know how I get on, all excited now .
Hi Tina, in this month's prediction magazine, they were advertising a tarot card set called Tarot Teachers. They are cards for anyone new to Tarot. Each card has its name on one side (instead of a pic) and a thorough explanation of the symbolism on the other, making them ideal for beginners or for those who'd rather concentrate on more specific areas of the card's meanings without becoming enmeshed in the complex imagery.
Looks quite good. there is an email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. it costs £10 plus 1.99 p&p.
I was thinking of getting it for myself!
Thanks lynsuk, will definately have a look
