How do you interpret Tarot cards?

Answer by PaulCyp
Foolishly. A stack of cardboard isn’t going to give you any meaningful information about your life.

Answer by Losasha
no—–tarot cards and fortune tellers are both hoaxes—–they do not work—-unless you have a deadly disease—–I would assume you’ll be fine—-

Answer by I am
Yes we will all die one day

Answer by DigitalGhost
No it can often mean that you will give up a bad habit or even come out of a bad situation.

Answer by Elliot
No. You are going to die, as everyone does, but it has nothing to do with tarot cards.

Assuming one believes in Tarot, the Death card signifies drastic change, not death.

Answer by Sweetgrass
No the death card means “transition” ..A total change in you life in someway. could mean moving job or anything ..but it means change

Answer by VeggieTart
Of course you’re going to die. Eventually.

No, the Death Card does not indicate imminent death, but it does indicate change, transformation, the end of one phase of life and beginning of another. There are several sites that will indicate the meanings of various tarot cards.

Answer by philebus
No, it doesn’t mean that at all.

Contrary to popular myth among English speakers, tarot is a pack of playing cards. Tarot was invented in the mid 15th century Italy for the Milanese court. It consists of a standard pack of Latin suited playing cards with an extra suit of picture cards. These extra cards took as their theme, not an occult philosophy or magical symbols, but a Christian triumph procession. Hence their early name of trionfi, meaning triumphs, and from which we get our word trump – it was the invention of tarot that marked the invention of trumps in cards games. And this is what they were created for, a family of card games that continues to be played throughout continental Europe to this day!

Just as you can get dealt the Ace of Spades in a card game without death, people have been dealt and drawing the 13th trump in card games for nearly 600 years without incurring a death for it.

It was not until the late 18th century that a Parisian occultist, Antoine Court de Gebelin, found the cards and, ignorant of their actual origin, invented one of his own about their being from Egypt and having a use in divination. All of the interpretations given to the cards have been invented by the various occultists after that point – any system is as ‘good’ as another.

Answer by Justin

Answer by A Landers
tarot cards are nothing more than pieces of cardboard usually used by Gypsy type people to separate you from your money.

Answer by JustAnswering
I’m not an expert at tarot but I think they’re meant to guide yourself than to talk to others who have passed.

BUT since I’m not an expert, an expert can easily disagree with me.

However, since you’re just a beginner, how do you know if you’re talking to your sister or if the cards are pertaining to you?

Tarot cards could be something that is mainly based on superstitions more than anything else. Bad and good. The bad is that people think they bring harm than just realize they’re cards made of paper. (You can thank the big “Church” and Hollywood for that.) The good is that people also think they have power when really the power to control your own decisions and life belongs to you. I believe the tarot cards are meant for a guidance for yourself. If you learn most of the meanings of the cards, you will see that most of ideas are generalized and vague that can easily apply to any situation in life big or small.

BUT I’M NOT AN EXPERT. So don’t take my word for it.

I’m sorry about your sister though. I don’t have a real or right way to talk to your sister even though, from what I hear and see, there are many other ways to do so.

But I will tell you this. I think she’s fine. And if you’re really upset and want to know yourself if she is, she’ll tell you in her own way.

Answer by Rev. Lynn D.
First, those who have passed over go first to the Astral Plane where they are counseled by other spirits. Sometimes they don’t even know they have passed right away.

So they cannot be reached immediately. There is no exact time limit as to when they can. It is an individual thing and has to do with how quickly they adjust.

Tarot cards are not tools for mediumship. They are used for readings for the living. Occasionally a reader might get a communication from a soul that has passed on, but that is not what generally happens.

Wait a few months and then contact a medium if you would like to speak with your sister.

If you have no one that can recommend someone, check with your local New Age Bookstore ( can be found by googling). They usually know people and may even have someone that works with them.

Best wishes and condolences.

i heard that ouija boards are really cool and that they do work…my sister had one and she was too freaked out to use it…so i would suggest that you could try it…its always good to take that risk

Answer by Morrigan
My deepest sympathies for your loss. I lost a sister too, and it truly hurts.

I’m glad your mother talked you out of using a Ouija board. I feel they cause more trouble than they are worth; you would have no idea if you were communicating with your sister or something else. I’m a paranormal investigator, and Ouija boards cause all kinds of chaos.

Tarot cards won’t help you communicate with her. That’s not their purpose. Please don’t allow your grief to cause you to contact someone who will claim to reach your sister for you for a fee. Anyone that would make those claims and charge you would be a fake. Sadly, there are people out there who would use your grief to make money off of you.

Have you tried talking to her yourself? I’d sit quietly in her room and simply talk to her. I don’t know if you’ll get any response, but you may find a little peace.

Time will help ease your pain of loss. You’ll always love & miss her, and wonder what life would have been like had she lived. Keep her memory in your heart and maybe she will communicate with you. Just be open to hearing from her.

Answer by vid
I don’t know if you are legitimate, but I’m going to let you know that Tarot cards don’t contact the dead as they are for the future and for spirituality…Hope that helps…

Answer by Jody
There are only two spiritual powers.

One is God, who does not allow parlour games, and the other one is not God.

Don’t play, just pray. Just talk to God, talk to her.

How to Read Tarot Cards : The Meaning of the Eight of Wands Tarot Card

Written by Ashnadel

About Me:
I’ve always ‘seen’ things that people would say are psychic and paranormal – and as a child, I had predictive dreams of ‘things to come’. Being that age, I was growing and playing but being a kid, I never really questioned this too much. Not until I got to about fourteen, when for some reason, I became very aware of it all and began to question. It was then that I suddenly started to realize that not everyone was having these dreams. Or that no-one else had their own ‘Cosmic Teachers’ who would come along, dressed in white and teach me.

I am not as anyone here, you can try by yourself, I am an expert in a different way, holding in my hand the secret of your life, I am from Land of the Pharaohs, I am Egyptian, we going to see together what is going on with you in your life, let’s start our journey into your deep inner and search into your Past, Present, and your near Future, only, for your own highest good. I used many tarot cards, I know lots of spreads, I hold lots of secrets, I can contact with your inner angels, to bring you your best thing for yourself and for your life.

Since being here on Oranum I have already been able to give guidance and spread the healing seeds of positivism, which I am a great believer of. Happiness is achievable for all of us if we learn how to ask for it.

You are at the right pace if you need to talk to someone about your worries and dilemmas, if you are you having self-esteem issues, and feel low on energy.

Do not look further and PUT YOUR TRUST IN ME!
