Im really curious to see what you make of this. I feel like this isn't just a whim anymore. It feels like fate in the making. Sure, John, just look up the Ace of Cups on a search engine. The tarot Ace of Cups is equivalent to the Ace of Hearts.
I have been pulling out a random card every day, to help familiarise myself with the deck and make it easier for me to remember all the cards. Years ago a dear lady, mother of a friend would read the cards for me and soon learned from her. Due to where I live and people in my life I only will do readings for those who know about me. I have really enjoyed reading your pages I found it very easy to comprehend for me that's a 1st ha ha,keep up the good work many thanks. Thanks for the detailed post! I've been wanting to get into "fortunetelling" for a while now.
I'm sorry, but I can't do your reading for you. All the information to interpret it yourself is given in the article. Of course, if you want to purchase a full in-depth tarot reading, head over to my site :D. Well the Queen of Diamonds is equal to the Queen of Pentacles in tarot.
As a character she is a practical, down-to-earth person. She gets on well with other people. She's maternal, a nest-builder but can also be a career woman--she would be a midwife or work in a practical, supporting role. In answer to your question, it's not the most helpful card to appear because it's not really a yes, or no unless you assigned red cards to yes, and black cards to no.
I keep getting the queen of diamonds when I do readings about this girl I really like. Two examples of when I got that card was in a three card spread of past present and future. It said that was her future. Another I just Did wan a one card spread and I asked if she liked me. Do you think this means anything, or am I just making it up in my head.
No, that's a complete myth. You can buy your own cards with no worries at all. If you wait for a deck to find you, it might be a long time coming. They aren't some special, magical things made by fairies, just images on card printed in a factory. The magic happens when your intuition connects with those images. Thank you for the helpful information!! I do have a question Is this true? Thanks for posting this! I'm rather young and want to study Tarot.
I was thinking about getting my own deck but never had the time to do so. But when I found this article, I was very happy! Is there any tips for any newcomers who are just getting into spiritual and fortune-y things? Hi Ella, no. Playing cards don't have reversals like tarot, because they are a mirror image whichever way you look at them. It's not face-up or face-down, by the way. They all have to be face-up. The Joker can be marked, and that's only if it is your personal preference to do so. If it comes out in a reading upside down, then its meaning is weakened or distorted into 'folly'. If this is confusing, then just leave the Joker as it is.
Learn the cards first and then you can change things up to suit your style of reading. Remember that the meanings I give in the article are just the tip of the iceberg, you can expand on them as you like, and according to the question and circumstances.

I'm very keen towards tarot yet for now my practice has to be easily hidden so this is perfect for where I am at transitionally! I am a born Psychic and Certified Hypnotist. I have read cards publicly for 46 years. I received the meaning of the cards from spirit. Others are a bit different. If a relationship between cards is unclear at first spirt will clarify for me.
My favorite spread is 21 cards, in rows of 7. It is a very thorough reading. I read that you based these meanings on traditional meanings. It seems that there is a special relationship between these cards and I. I appreciate your work and hope you live with tranquility. I would suggest that you forget that reading and simply draw one card to answer your question. I avoid interpreting other people's readings because they are essentially a snapshot of the energy around you at that point in time.
So formulate your question carefully, set your intention, shuffle cut, or not and draw one card :. I just found your article while searching on how to read playing cards. Very interesting; I did a 5 card reading asking about my previous career as a Flight Attendant.
I resigned in and have regretted it. I asked the cards if I will become a Flight Attendant again. I hope you can help me understand, thanks. Mariah, my system is based on traditional tarot: the suits, the elements and the numbers. You can 'verify' by reading up on the structure of tarot and how it works. The information I have in my book that you are saying it's nothing like what youre saying I am just beginning this process and in current state of labeling and making my cards my own and with that I got a book in the mail and as I said the information that you're providing does not match up with what I am reading at the moment so can you explain that is there different meanings to everybody because they are not alike whatsoever.

When you get three consecutive cards like that, it's possible that they have stuck together. If the deck is well-shuffled, then your cards are indicating a positive development in the material sense.
They could be saying that your bf has taken a risk, but is comfortable wherever he is. He has to juggle his resources, but working with others is helping him. However, my feeling is that the cards are telling you to focus on other things, such as a career, or some sort of project.
The reversed joker, indicates that he is a silly boy and that you simply have to get on with your life. Hi ive asked a question about my relationship which at minute is on a break my bf asked another woman if she can put him up but she never answered but lives close i asked the cards if hes with her and i got. Joker card upside down ace diamonds.. Hi TJ, I have no way of interpreting your cards. I don't don't your question or your circumstances. I have no 'special powers' that allow me to know these things. Sorry, I can't read 'blind'. Why don't you tell me what you think?
I have a gist of what it means. I would like to reassure and make of what's spread around me. If not, then assign them to knave, queen, king :. I have a deck with 11s, 12s, and 13s in them. Do these have a use in tarot, or are they unnecessary? This is extremely useful. Thank you for this. I always get asked to do readings when I don't have my tarot deck, and now I know that I can read my regular deck, which I always carry around! Hi RJG, there aren't any reversals for playing cards as they look the same either way. You'd have to mark the cards. In tarot, a reversed card can indicate several things, depending on the reader, the other cards, the question and so on.
Generally speaking, a reversal means a weakening of energy, so for instance, the Nine of Wands, which indicates a will to keep going in the face of resistance, would show that resolve is slipping. Please ask if you have any other questions :. Thanks soo much for your article! I love it. Just one thing I was hoping you could help with. I noticed the only card you gave a reversed meaning for was the joker.
Are there specific reversed meamings for the rest or is it more of a take and use the reverse for whats there. Like happiness turns to unhappiness and so on It's true, I can't read for myself at all. Always good to keep a record of the reading and revisit it later. And, of course, you can keep delving deeper, through the layers and symbolism.
Thanks for the answer. I do know the Tarot card equivalent for all, and my basic interpretation was similar to yours. I saw 3 of clubs as one more try thought. Of course ten of diamonds says "all will be well at the end". Unfortunately, it is very hard to read for ourselves as in general, we all have a bias as to what we desire and often tend to see what we want instead of what the cards are really telling us.

Putting in the work. So I did the reading and could use interpretation help. Basically related to my work, left old good paying job for new job that did not work out.

Start there and then you can progress. Where can i find sites that i can learn to read the playing cards the future in reality and not just for fun? Absolutely right, Maurice. If you know the basics of numerology and can meld the meaning of the numbers with the elements of the suits, you can read the cards.
