tarot card meaning

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Does anybody know anything about tarot cards?

My friend has tarot cards and I drew three cards, and to me what they had to say didn’t make any sense. Can somebody explain what they mean as a whole? I mean altogether. I had wheel of fortune, page of wands, and ace of cups.

It depends on the question you asked, and the spread you chose. Since I don’t know these things i can only give you general information concerning the cards.

The Wheel: You’ve reached a turning point in your life. The hub of the wheel relates to stability, but the outer rim portends change,taking a gamble.

Page of Wands: A phone call or e-mail you’ve been hoping for arrives.

Ace of Cups: A happy situation is about to start or is already in the beginning stages. (new love, new start, new opportunities)

Answer by Mew

my nan can read them & taught me to do readings
Load of crap if you ask me, but when I do the idiots can really relate to it

Answer by Will Nickel
There are a good many different explanations, any one of which will suffice. As an earlier answer told you, each pack of cards comes with an explanatory booklet.

Actually it’s cups, swords, batons and coins and the meanings originate from French culture in the Middle Ages

Cups represent the Clergy (First Estate)
Swords represent the Nobility (Second Estate)
Batons represent the Farmers (Third Estate [Rural])
Coins represent the Merchants (Third Estate [Urban])

They don’t mean anything, just like the symbols on the regular playing cards don’t mean anything. People occasionally assign them arbitrary meanings, however.

Answer by Graybeard
Nothing at all. Tarot is a 400 yr. old very complicated French card game rather like contract bridge. The colorful cards were later adopted by gypsies and other charlatans who pretended to predict the future from magical meanings. No truth to it at all.

Answer by IntuitiveImpressions
A standard tarot deck has pentacles (clubs) meaning the earth element or those things having to do with finances; the wands (stars???) which are elements of fire and other things, like communication coming in; the swords, which deal with air and thoughts and thinking elements; and finally, the cups which are the water element and deal with emotions and love.

Answer by philebus
Well, there are different ways to answer this one. We can start by looking that the answer history offers.

Playing cards are believed to have developed from Chinese money games, which may even have been played with actual currency. We do know that these games featured suits, such as coins, and stacks of coins, which may have developed into what we now call the round (cups and coins) and long (swords and batons) suits.

We first see playing cards in the form recognisable to us in the Islamic world, which came into Europe via trade with North Africa in the 14th century. These had the familiar 52 structure but featured the suits of Cups, Coins, Scimitars (curved swords), and Polo Sticks. The game of Polo was not played in Europe at that time, so the sticks lost their paddle and become just batons. It is worth noting that at this time, the court cards were all male and in Europe were a King, a Rider, and a Footman. Cards like these are still the standard form of playing card in countries such as Italy and Spain, as well as in parts of South America.

It was in the mid 15th century that an extra suit of picture cards, along with queens, were added to these cards for the Milanese court to give us the Tarot pack. And for nearly 350 years they were used only for playing card games.

Towards the end of the 18th century, French occultists began to adopt the cards, promoting them as occult objects and fitting them into detailed occult systems. This is when the Coins were changed into Pentacles (five pointed stars), and the batons often referred to as Wands. However the changes were not adopted by all occultists.

As the suits were not actually created for occult interpretation but adopted for it, they can mean whatever fits your needs or beliefs and you can find many different accounts in books – but there is no right answer, only the answer that suits you.
