Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Tarot card meanings, and compatability?

I asked the cards if I was going to be able to meet “that special guy” any time soon, and if so, were we to be a good match. I got a pretty positive answer so far, but if anyone with more experiance than me could help me interprete the cards these are the ones I drew.
Who is the Man-King of Pentacles
Question- Four of Swords
Love- Two of Cups
Outcome- Ace of swords
Reader’s Fan-
Queen of Wands, Three of Pentacles, and the Queen of Pentacles.
So please, if anyone could put more light on to the meaning of these cards, I would be very greatful.
What would be the compatability between me, Jan 20 (Capracorn, Aquarius Cusp.) and The King of Pentacles?

Answer by purnimacresent
If you shuffled the cards wit the intention of interpreting them, then only you can do so. All he meanings have to come from within your own heart and soul/intuition.
You throw aside the book and see what it means to you.

My lil tip tho, is to only ask one question per spread-That way you don’t confuse the answer. Your question was a double barreled question.

Answer by AlterEgo
Tarot is a “cold reading” technique. You get to apply whatever interpretation you need so as to quiet your questions.

There are no answers in tarot. Only interpretations.

Answer by Pam R

Not too sure what spread you have used, but it doesn’t matter

Who is the Man-King of Pentacles ~ This is a person who is grounded, down to earth, unbias. Very cautious, committed person.

If no man is about at present – this probably portrays what you hope for in a man?

Question- Four of Swords ~ this card shows that you are nervous of being hurt again & wonder if you have the strength of charactor to do it again & risk being hurt/

Love- Two of Cups ~ predominatly a card of friendship, so this needs to be explored with anyone who comes along – no rushing – your mind is telling you to go slow.

Outcome- Ace of swords ~ A card of harsh truths, being totally honest with self. So maybe there is a need to be realistic about this area, get perspective before moving forwards.

Reader’s Fan-
Queen of Wands, Three of Pentacles, and the Queen of Pentacles. ~ Queen of W is playful, a freind, the 3 pents shows being noticed & proper groundwork & Q of Pent is you, down to earth, honest, loving & wanting commitment.

I feel that these 3 shows girly friendships are needed at this stage, to ground you in your present reality while you sort out what you truly do & most importantly, do not want from a commited relationship.


Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Court card Tarot meanings, physical interpretations?

I’m going to order a book on court cards in Tarot, I’m interested in learning the physical interpretations of the cards, as in WHO they represent. I know that the queen of pentacles represents someone with dark hair and eyes and who is of sturdy build.

In the meantime, can anyone suggest websites websites that can tell me what physical characteristics the cards show, or can anyone list them for me.

No Christian bible bashers telling me I’m going to hell please, I can’t end up there if I don’t believe it exists so your crazy babbling won’t scare me.

Make it up,someone else did many years ago,do you agree or have tarot cards always been here?

Answer by Mr.Longrove
Best to leave tarot cards, along with any other occultic objects, alone. You’ll be opening doors that are better left closed. Just a friendly warning.

Furthermore – Not believing in hell won’t make it go away. You WILL end up there if you reject God’s free gift of salvation.

Answer by LJR
The way I read Tarot the symbols stand for active or inactive principals and types of energy not people, but then I don’t believe that the cards predict the future either. I use their random symbols to help me rethink issues in new ways.

Answer by Helen
I don’t place much stock in correspondence to physical traits personally, I prefer to identify them with personality types.

For what it’s worth, Waite’s Key to the Tarot generally describes the Wands and Pentacles courts as “dark”, and the Cups courts as “fair”, he is not specific about Swords. I think you can find this book online.

Mary K Greer has written a book specifically on Court Cards.

There is a series of articles “How to Interpret Minor Arcana Court Cards” at tarot-card-reading.suite101.com and “Hidden and Secret Meanings: The Court Cards” at llewellyn.com.

They have absolutely zero meaning.
“But any statistician knows that you can find correlations, if you want to, between almost any two sets of patterns or rhythms between the occurrence of sunspots and fluctuations of the stock market, between the lines and bumps on your hand and the course of your life or between the architecture of the Great Pyramid and the history of Europe.” Alan Watts.
This is a result from a phenomenon called ‘eidetic imagery.’

What everyone else said. It’s crap.

Answer by Meg
Pick up books, the best way is to read for others at coffee shops and what not, or during homeroom or study hall. Best books out there are by Mary Greer, Rachel Pollack, and I prefer Idiots guide to tarot reading. Great book. Best Deck to start out with is the Universal Waite Deck by Stuart Kaplan.

Answer by Scarlet MacBlu
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.

Answer by IntuitiveImpressions
When I was first learning, I got books and pulled spreads on myself each day. I also learned the meanings behind the numbers, as each card has a corresponding number. A good book to start with is The Tarot Handbook by Angeles Arriens. I am also available to teach you from my website at www.intuitiveimpressions.com.

Since the age of 2 I have had encounters and a personal relationship with loved ones crossed. In my opinion there are no better friends you can have. They are honest, without the capacity to hold ego or materialistic views and always give you accurate information to help you through whatever you are going through. They have the ability to see the past, present and future without judgement. Their accuracy is uncanny.

Having the gift of sight, hearing, sensing, smelling and tasting as well as empathy and the gift of communicating with spirit, gives me the ability to accurately read you without judgement.

Spirit has entrusted me with these gifts to help you in all areas of your life. It has been an exciting journey. This gift is generational and my grandmother and father both had the gift as well as my children.

I have assisted over 15,598 people online in the last 9 years alone. I have thousands of other clients as well. This is what I dedicate my life to as I know it is my life calling.
