Although the original Tarot Card Meaning was to keep secret records of history they have evolved over time to other uses as well. These days they are most popular with divination. The Tarot Card has also recently been used for playing games and gambling. They are also potent in casting spells. The more experienced will use the Tarot Card for casting spells, while others use the Tarot Card in paintings, gifts and even for decoration. There have spawned many different styles of the Tarot Card over the years with the most popular still being the Rider Waite Tarot card deck……..


There are 78 cards to a tarot deck. This is made up of 22 major arcana and 56 minor arcana and the fool. Arcana is the plural form of the Latin word arcanum, meaning “closed” or “secret”.

The fool is numbered 0. The major arcana which represent the original tarot deck are numbered 1 to XX1.

The minor arcana are made up of 4 kings, 4 queens, 4 knights, four aces, and the cards numbered 2 to 10.

Tarot Cards have originated from various countries. In the traditional Italian card, there are Swords, Batons, Coins and Cups. In more modern tarot card, the Batons are called called Wands, Rods or Staves. The Coins are called Pentacles. Because these days the Tarot Card serve many purposes there are a large variety of Tarot decks.

You can shorten the meanings of different tarot cards so they are easier for you to remember. That isn’t the same as making them up. You can use tricks to remind yourself what the cards mean…that is just fine. I would like to help you with the meanings of the tarot but sadly unless I know which deck you are using I can’t just tell you their meanings. As different decks have different cards and so they have different meanings for the different cards. Sorry went on a bit there. Good luck remembering I know it can be hard. You will get used to them after awhile though and remembering will become easy.

Answer by Helen
I think what you are referring to is keywords not made up meanings, and there are already many systems out there for this. If you only use one system you will probably miss out on other aspects of a card meaning.

There are a few different systems listed here:


Answer by Tiffany
I agree with Helen, you’re looking for a keyword system. There are tons of those all over the internet, books, and even the “little white books” that come with a deck. But it took me a long time to realize that it’s not just about memorizing a keyword system. If you draw a card that you’ve seen a million times, but something is standing out to you that doesn’t fit the keyword, then you should think about that. Also, cards can seem to change meaning by the other cards around them. A keyword system is a good base of information to start with, but after you feel comfortable with that, listen more to your intuition.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Could someone please explain reverse tarot card meanings to me?

I’ve read tarot cards for quite a while now, but I still don’t understand the whole “reverse card” thing… Please explain?

Answer by No Hope Without Nihilism
I would guess it’s a cop out, to explain the times when the opposite of what was predicted happens. But I don’t know.

Answer by Cynthia
A reverse Tarot card is when it is upside down from your view, the meaning of the card is then the opposite of what the non-reverse meaning is..if that makes sense at all… so like if you get a card that means good health, but its upside down it means bad health could become ill..
