Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : I have a question about tarot cards?

Recently my daughter started learning about tarot cards. Today, I found her tarot cards wrapped in a piece of cloth, lying in a bed of rosemary leaves in her jewelry box. I have no idea what this means. Does anyone familiar with tarot cards know? We didn’t have any rosemary leaves in the house, which means she went to the store and bought them (I found the container in her nightstand).

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Answer by Godless
It’s a “showing respect for the cards” kind of thing. When I was into that kind of stuff I went out and bought cloth special to wrap them in. I’d be more concerned with whether she thinks they actually work or whether it’s just for fun.

Why are you going through her stuff?

Answer by yyyyzz (wise)
Tarot card have to be personalized and “cleaned”. They are an extension of you psychic. Should be left out on the ground at night under a full moon and if possible rained upon. (earth, wind, “fire” & water.) The cards itself mean very little, they are just there to kick start your subconsciousness. Just tell her it is not a toy, not to be taken lightly and to be used with maturity. And a lot of study – many books and years.

Answer by auntb93
Many readers feel it is important to treat the deck as a sacred object. I don’t, but then I stopped reading Tarot after my late husband, also my high priest, committed suicide.

Rosemary is traditionally for remembrance. Perhaps this is her way to concentrate on remembering all she has learned about the Tarot. To take it seriously, it takes a lot of studying the symbols and their historic meanings, not just the little booklet packaged with them.

You should be comforted that she’s taking her study seriously. The ones who are just playing around are the most in danger from scaring themselves with an “unlucky” reading. The Tarot deals with some very serious issues, and of course they can be scary at times. Overcoming that fear and learning to look at all sides of an issue is a valuable growing experience.

Answer by vongermany
She loves her cards.
She is bonding with her cards.
She is treating her deck with utter respect.
Support her and her cards and she will love you more.
Violate her cards and she will become very upset.

Answer by SadharaSatguru

Some people will do all sorts to their cards. Rosemary is a cleansing herb, so someone may have told her that it will keep them free from anything ‘bad’. Truth is they will be fine just kept in their box. It is just superstition being adhered to by your daughters. It is nothing to worry about.


Answer by Miss 6
Some readers like to keep their cards in a “protective” cloth or box. I have read that rosemary leaves are used to keep negative energies away from you. This is just a way of cleansing the cards. Nothing to worry about.

Answer by steven m
this book appears to be very detailed

Like every subject the series of books covers

You get descriptions of the cards and interactions with other cards
Different spreads and arrangements
And meanings relating to the cards placement and direction it is facing.

Answer by Ninja
Randomly choose a player to go first.

On your turn, ask a player for a specific card rank. You must already hold at least one card of the requested rank.

If the player you ask has any cards of the requested rank, she must give all of her cards of that rank to you.

If you get one or more cards from the player you ask, you get another turn. You may ask any player for any rank you already hold, including the same one you just asked for.

If the person you ask has no relevant cards, they say, “Go fish.” You then draw the top card from the draw pile.

If you happen to draw a card of the rank asked for, show it to the other players and you get another turn. However, if you draw a card that’s not the rank you asked for, it becomes the next player’s turn. You keep the drawn card, whatever rank it is.

NOTE: The “next player” is the one who said “Go fish.”

They’re total BS – but flash them around and pretend to tell some fortunes – people are idiots.

Answer by Clanad
I’m sorry, but the first answer is pretty good. You should definitely stay clear from anything that has to do with predicting the future as this is strongly prohibited in the Bible. God wants us to trust solely in Him and in the fact that He is taking care of our future in the best possible way for eternal salvation.

Things such as fortune-telling and tarot cards are ways that we let the devil infiltrate our lives and reak havoc on our present and future.

Not a good idea…

Answer by scribblo
First, study the meanings of all the cards, with the understanding that they are meant to be guides that stimulate your subconscious. When you do readings for yourself, the interpretation will come from within you.

Then study the different types of spreads, and pick one that you think will be appropriate for the question you have in mind (i.e. simpler questions with few factors can be asked with a simple spread; more complex questions with lots of energies involved may call for a more complicated spread).

Then meditate on your question, focusing and holding it clearly in your mind. Shuffle the cards while keeping the question clearly in focus, then lay your spread. Do not simply take the cards or their meanings at face value, but delve deep inside yourself. Find the archetypes that come up as they exist in the inner world of your own consciousness, and see what kind of story your subconscious is trying to tell you and how it relates to your question.

Answer by IdentityCrisis
If you can’t find a book, or an online guide (I have linked one), then here’s what you should do: Find a source where you can learn the meaning of each card. Use this source every time you give a reading, until you know the definition of each card. Only do readings for yourself until you know them all. After enough readings, you will start remembering cards that either come up frequently or ones that stand out. Once you know a good half of the deck by heart, you should be able to learn the rest simply by studying (as studying from the start is an option, just a boring one) and doing more readings. Start with a simple spread with few cards, and do that one as often as you can. Never use the same question or subject twice, as you’ll probably end up with more questions than answers. Eventually move your way to the Celtic Cross, which has anywhere between 9 and 11 cards, depending on the variation. Don’t use reversed (upside down) meanings from the get-go, as that means a whole `nother meaning per card. Decide along the way if you want to use them at all (as it is personal preference). Hope I helped! 😛

Too small of a space to provide a step-by-step guide that addresses every card or more than a handful of possible spreads. You might find a book helpful.

One effective method of learning tarot is to journal. Go card-by-card through your deck in order and spend some time with each card. Study the image on the card and record your impressions. Break down the symbolism (out loud if you have to) and record what you think it means. Then get out your books… the guidebook that comes with the deck and any other book you have with tarot meanings (at least having one other book can be helpful. I recommend either “Tarot: Your Everyday Guide” bu Jenina Renee or “The Tarot Workbook” by Nevill Drury) and read through the entries while examining the picture on the card. Record whatever information seems important or relevant. When you are through with the deck, go back through your notes and study them… compile a short statement about the card, maybe a couple of sentences describing what you think it means… then see if you can break this down further into a keyword or two that describes the card… this will help the meanings you see by studying the cards stick in your head a little.
The next thing you might try is comparing the numbers. Take out all the aces and compare what they mean… the things they have in common will refer to the essential meaning of “ace” and the things that are different about them will refer to the essential meanings of each suit. Go on and do this with the twos, threes etc until you’ve gone through all the minor arcana. I found this to be extremely helpful, myself. Next find a reference for the “Journey of the Fool” and the story about the major arcana and why they are in that particular order and what they symbolize in our greater life’s journey. Journal about the Journey and how you feel about the major arcana… these things were all very helpful to me in my training.
To do a reading, leave the book alone. Don’t even keep your guidebook with your deck as you don’t want to be tempted to reference it during the reading. Read from the images, even if you have no experience with the cards. Look at the people on the cards and figure out what they are doing, how they are feeling and what the various symbols might indicate, then try to apply the behaviors and symbols on the card to the situation at hand. Use your intuition to focus on what seems to be the most important and relevant aspect of the image or symbolism.
If you’ve never read before, you might be better off leaving more complex spreads alone. Leave the complex 10-card “Celtic Cross” spread for when you are more experienced with the cards and stick with simple spreads like a one-card spread or 3 to 4 card spreads where the positions are fairly easy to figure out. Once you’ve got a better handle on the cards themselves and the positions of your spreads, you can experiment with more complex spreads and trying to read the relationships between the cards.

I was told that you can use a regular deck of cards in place of tarot cards…I just need to know the meanings of the cards in relation to hearts diamonds spades clubs ect… Can any one help me?

Answer by angk
Hearts are cups, diamonds are pentacles, spades are swords, and clubs are wands. Otherwise, you’re pretty much reading the pip cards the same, except no page/prince/whatever the funky lowest court card is in the tarot deck you’re used to (they change…)

Answer by firebyrd16

shuffle a deck of cards and draw one from the deck
then check the table and see what the meaning of the card is

I suggest you get a book on the subject. I have one for a tarot deck, but it would take all day to give you the information. The tarot deck is divided into 2 groups; Major Arcana – 22 cards
Lesser Arcana – 56 cards which are representative of a regular playing deck of 52 cards. The Jack is a combination of the Knight and the Page.
The meanings of the cards change depending on their relationship to other cards, where they are placed in the reading and whether or not they are placed head up.
Wands are Clubs
Swords are Spades
Cups are Hearts
Pentacles are Diamonds
Check your local library or a book store for a publication on divining with a regular deck of playing cards.

Answer by ♥Angel♥
Regular playing cards were derived from the Minor Arcana of the Tarot,and can be used to divinate with,but they don’t have the same strong subconscious imagery as the Tarot.Anyway here’s how it goes:

Spades= Swords
Hearts= Cups or Chalices
Clubs= Wands,Staves or Rods
Diamonds=Pentacles or Discs

There is no card in the regular playing deck to equal the Page or Princess in the Tarot.And there is no Major Arcana.The Joker card of the regular playing card deck is the only card that appears in the Major Arcana of the Tarot.There it is the Fool.
