Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : How do I perform a tarot reading with playing cards?

I already know the meanings of each card, but how do i perform it like the way in “Blue is for Nightmares” as in the girl splits the deck into 3 piles, then takes 7 cards from each…..can anyone tell me how to do it that way?

Answer by stakchipz
dont do that.

Answer by Mortis
There is no right or wrong way of doing a Tarot reading, just guidelines. The number of Tarot spreads equals the number Tarot decks and users. The best way to perform a spread is to do what you feel is right and what works best for you. If you really want to do a three stack reading, a good guideline to start with would be, first stack = past, second stack = present, third stack = future. the seven cards drawn from each could be what is influencing the situation for each stack.

I’m not familiar with that book, but playing cards are really just dumbed down versions of tarot cards, anyway


There’s just no Major Arcana, and no knights.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : How do I write a gypsy-like fortune?

In my book, I’m at the part where the two characters are in a gypsy caravan (it’s in the 1800s) and getting their fortune told. I have absolutely no idea how to write this. It has to be vague, but it has to have a deeper meaning to it, too. Any advice?

**I want it to sort of tell about the struggles he has recently gone through and about how things will turn out in the end (I want that part to be very vague). But the very end has to have something about “a blood red rose”.

Answer by Thrasymachus
Use a tarot card reading. Look up the meanings of tarot cards on a tarot web site (like the one below), find cards that match the meanings you want and a layout that works for you. Then you can have the gypsy telling the fortune as she reveals each card in the reading.

Also, you should be careful to use a tarot deck that would have existed in the 19th century, like the Marseilles or Lenormand deck. The most popular decks today (Rider-Waiter, Thoth, etc.) didn’t exist back then.

Horoscope reading is done with the person birthday and the planets at the time.
Palm reading is being able to read the lines of the hands. Much as reading a book except the lines tell one the story of their live.
Tarot card reading is a deck of 78 cards. With pictures on them. it forecasts what the future will hold.
The person being read will usually shuffle the deck of cards. Cut them and put them back. The person doing the reading will take the cards and use one of many spread laying out the cards. Interpeting the pictures on the cards.
All of these tools listed are used to forecast the future and the past too.

Answer by rkbaqaya
Tarot readings are different from Astrology,numerology,palm reading etc.Whereas astrologers try to tell about one’s future from the pattern of stars at the time of one’s birth,palmists tell it from the lines on one’s palm and numerologists tell the same from the numbers realted to one’s date of birth;in tarot however,readings about future are given by looking at a set of cards.
The tarot is a pack of 78 cards.Out of these 22 cards are considered more important and are known as ‘The Major Arcana’ and the remaning 56 cards are called ‘The Minor Arcana’.There is a picture with a name given for it on each card.All these cards(the pictures on them) have occult meanings.There are books available in the market which tell about the occult meaning of each card.It seems much is not known about the origin of these occult meanings,except that these meanings have been handed over from generation to generation since thousands of years.The Tarot card reader will tell your future based on the card you draw or he draws for you.Hope i have been able to convey properly.
