meaning of tarot cards

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Is it possible for people who have no psychic abilities to give themselves an accurate tarot card reading?

As far as I know, I am not psychic, but I would like to purchase a deck of tarot cards and give myself a reading. Do you think that the reading would be accurate, considering that I’m not psychic?

Answer by Cthulhu fhtagn!
Feel free to do it. It will be as accurate as any psychic’s reading.

ok so I’m sure there will be lots of people who will disagree, but there is no such thing as a person without “Psychic” abilities. In truth Psychics are just people who are sensitive to their intuition. Since most people have shut that part of themselves off they may feel as if they have no ability. In fact Tarot cards are a tool to encourage and develop that intuitive nature and that psychic ability. That was the long answer the short answer is yes.

How to use the the Tarot cards for this purpose is a completely different question and answer.

There is another part of this question I would also like to address. It’s not a good idea to give yourself a reading. Why? Well when we give ourselves readings we tend to interpret things to mean what we want not what our intuition says.

Answer by Kitty P
Psychic and intuitive are two crucially different things, especially regarding Tarot and other Magickal practices.

Everyone has intuition, whether or not they really listen to it (or even know how to) it’s still something we innately possess and can use whenever we want or need. Tarot is ALL about intuition.

Each card has it’s traditional meaning (for example Death representing a great change) but a big part of Tarot is using the emotions and feelings you -personally- get by looking at the cards. Sure, the book says it means change, but you might be sitting there and just -feel- that the card is something entirely different. Maybe you’ll see ‘sickness’, maybe you’ll see a physical death. It’s all about how the card makes you feel!

Tarot is all about adding your own interpretation to the spread. Why? Because you’re the one that shuffled, you’re the one that asked the question and focused your energy into the cards. It seems reasonable that whatever you draw out has a specific, personal meaning to you – even if it isn’t the same one as in the book!

There are many meditation and Tarot contemplation methods out there that are very useful for getting to really know your deck, and these will help train you to actively utilize your intuition to get the best possible readings.

So don’t worry about accurate readings, just take your time to learn you deck, and it will just naturally come to you.

You’re a natural, you just might not know it yet. =)

Purchase the cards, have you any intuition? Listen to that, the rest will come.

Yes. I don’t consider myself to be psychic and I’ve always had good luck with tarot readings. It’s a learned skill — most decks even come with a little book telling the meanings. Being psychic is, meanwhile, something that just happens; the only way to learn it is to learn how to fake it.

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.
