This tarot card characterizes and symbolizes passion, direction, ignition, expansion, initiation, energization, creativity, and resourcefulness.
The meaning of the ace of wands deals with the high volume of energies that burst forth in self-confidence. The most reflective illustration of this card is from the Thoth rendition.

A psychic needs to understand this card very well, as it is an important Tarot card.

By looking at the Thoth rendition, a person will feel drawn due to the energy and passion it holds. People who have this card included in their reading can expect an incredible adventure. Apart from that, it also means the start of a new beginning, which always has something to do with creativity matters.

It is the tarot card that leads a person to be reminded of the creative control they have in their lives. Looking at the card again, one can see the hand that holds out the rod, which symbolizes the passion the person himself has. It just indicates one’s ability in holding their desires and allowing their passion in enabling themselves to reach their goals.

However, when it is in a reversed position or one that leans toward conflict, it could mean that the person is letting their desires or wants control them. That would also mean that the person already needs to gain back the control and handle their emotions better. This tarot card is holding its own beauty, one that stands out loudly and clearly. As such, it serves an inspiration to the Tarot pantheon that holds the light so that everyone will be able to see their way clearly.

Its meaning also deals with anything related to creative insight. It can be about leaving a promise of direction, motion along with positive energy that can result to a delightful one. The tarot card calls the loudest to people including visionaries, artists, entrepreneurs and those seeking for a new and creative path. At most, it will serve as their green card light, the one that gives a positive encouragement in proceeding with their endeavours.

The ace of wands has four key symbols which are:

Mountains – This imagery means challenges, acquisition, aspirations and accomplishments. It gives that visual meaning that as a person climbs higher, the more closer they get in reaching their highest point. This highest pint can be one’s physical, spiritual goal or anything being aspired for. Mountains are also inflexible and unbending, which gives the message that only the person is capable of changing the way they deal with those challenges they face in their life. Thus, as a person climbs higher, the lessons they learned must also be embraced while facing those challenges that came their way.

Clouds – It symbolizes ambiguity, things hidden and mystery. Most of this card’s rendition shows a hand that holds a flaming torch which is thrust out from the clouds. It symbolizes the energy and ideas that comes out from hidden places of one’s psyche. The clouds can mean hidden agendas that keep a person from holding a pattern or underlying beliefs holding the person back from being their bright self.

Rivers – As in with river, it symbolizes direction, flow of thoughts and lives, and motion. When it is featured in the ace of wands, it could mean a message regarding the direction that the person is taking. Once this is shown, the person must reassess their goals and have that confidence in taking the direction they so desire.

Tarot reading is a popular means of understanding and knowing what lies in the future. However, it is not all about the future since tarot reading also serves as a way in understanding your past and present. To enable reading and get the meaning it tells, a set of tarot cards is used and spread out. There are cases when reversed tarot cards are being encountered and opened. At times, it also causes some worries to the person being read. Some would even think that an opened reversed tarot cards can only suggest negative meaning. As for beginners, this might lead them to thinking of how a reversed card is and must be read.

A psychic needs to be fully aware of what reversed Tarot Cards means.

How to interpret reversed tarot cards has long been an issue, and time and again, tarot readers encounter this case. It is also a subject that caused heated debate with others. It is mainly because different psychics offer different interpretations, which just gave a general answer that reading reversed tarots is all dependent to the psychic itself.

In facing situations like reading tarot cards and the right ways in which it must be read, the preference of each tarot readers in reading and interpreting the showed cards to them is emphasized. That also leads to the question of whether they will acknowledge the subject about Tarot reversals.

Whatever the case is, or of the reader decided to acknowledge the subject, there are some suggestions on how each of the reversed cards can be interpreted. These suggestions include:

• Considering the nemeses, antitheses is or the arch rival to the standard featured in the tarot card.

• Consider the malfunction, opposite or abnormality of the meaning of the upright card.

• Consider the time delay within the given outcome of the upright card.

• Suggest to the client to see the implications or meaning of the card in a different angle. A different way.

• Consider the difference in the energy of the client and compare it with the card’s original energy. It could mean or means that the client is wanting to have a particular thing, but is thinking of its opposite.

• Get the feel of the story that lies in the reversal of the card by depending on where it is located in the spread. Like when the royal cards are touching in a head-to-head manner, then it could mean putting 2 heads together.

As for questions about whether to read the reversals or not, it should depend on the reader. It is their choice to make. In cases when the reader decided to read the reversed card yet do not know what they should do, it can all be dependent on what is spread there. It means, reading the cards accordingly, whatever the cards tells one to read.

As a reminder and to handle the reading of the reversed cards better, the readers can consider taking their favorite deck and using it, contemplate on the cards positioned up-side-down outside of the reading arena. Then, while doing so, let the reigns of one’s mind and just allow the imagination to run wild. It means, let ones’ psychic eyes to roll what it is featured on the cards and allow it to recognize vague shadows, hues, shapes and nuance.

Tarot cards have been used for several years as a tool to see the future. Tarot is composed of different sets of cards, and one of which is the ace of cups. This card has something to do with the department of love. Ace of cups is all about love, peace, patience, assurance, tranquility, harmony, compassion, and acceptance.

It is a basic knowledge that love is the most powerful emotion that mankind can feel. Love also has something to do with the meaning of ace of cups, and if one just concentrated on this, there is a better chance that what it tells will be better understood. It plays a very significant role in a psychic reading.

It is also said that love is potent. Shown in the left part of the card is the Thoth rendition, which emanates an energy that spans out in a web of connectivity prominently. It is perceived that these energy waves are something made of love and compassion. With that, one can easily be reminded about the power that love has over everything.

Ace of cups has been said to be symbolizing love and a signal of new beginning of relationships. However, it is more than that. It does mean love, but more in the blessing aspect. It means a blessing that provides an assurance. It is an assurance that when one placed himself in a relationship where love is abundant, then the flow of love is endless. This just means that ace of cups comes with a message for the person to begin with love present always. Whatever one’s intentions, desires, needs are or wherever they may be directed to, if it all started with compassion and love, then one will be facing a blessed result.

There are several primary symbols that the ace of cup is comprised with. These are:

Dove – It is a universal spiritual icon that symbolizes hope, aspiration, purity, and ascension. Based on the Greco-Roman mythology, Aphrodite/Venus considers it as a sacred creature, making it a powerful symbol for love. Since it is used in ace of cups, it just made it a promising symbol. There is also a secondary meaning and message with dove, specifically the ones shown in the version of the Rider-Waite, which points down. It means you can fly as high as you can, but first, you have to ground yourself.

Water – It symbolizes the subconscious and emotion as well as cleansing, purity and rebirth. It also has to do with the moon, which makes it lean to symbolizing femininity. Due to that, the foundation of ace of cups is much more strengthened, specifically the one that tells to deal with love and compassion all the time. The symbol of the love and rebirth associated with water has something to do with the belief that the earth was made through a watery womb.

Lotus – The meaning of lotus is always associated with ascension. In ace of cups, it means beauty is always present in everything even everywhere as long as one aims to see this beauty within anywhere. It is the symbol that further enhances the other ones featured in the card. With the meaning being symbolized by lotus, love and, peace and rebirth made it possible for new emotional highs to be experienced in life.

The very first thing that one should consider when he is determined to have knowledge in reading tarot cards and making it more perfect is to know their own ability. Another thing is that there’s no replacement for knowledge and experience. It will simply take a little period of time to become acquainted to know about how those tarot cards do their part in a given circumstance. Using destiny cards for a longer period of time will not guarantee that you already perfected their meaning in every situation in a person’s life.  One should take into account that there are still possibilities on how to learn and understand what will be the possible results of tarot cards in changing people’s lives.

Many psychics use Tarot cards during psychic readings.

One of the best ways for you to understand it more clearly is trying to indulge yourself for a few years to get used to reading the cards with enough knowledge about it. One who has already mastered reading the tarot cards can simply suggest you to spend some time to see and adopt the learning of attitude for several months as this way can surely assist you in refining your reading capabilities and the way you deliver them to your clients. Your capability in reading cards for your client is anchored on your own beliefs, consciousness, the need for consent and aspiration to give out without thinking of yourself. On the other hand, it is quite hard to split oneself from tarot reading. It is advisable to begin tarot reading by seeking guidance from someone to give you direction so that whatever the outcome of your reading is, it will become as untainted as probable. It will not agree with your personal motivated opinions, suggestions and reactions and also, it will not be interfered by any other aspects. If you can catch yourself projecting your own issues into the card reading, this can be a great breakthrough for you. Everyone can attain this suggestion whenever they would like to approach a tarot reading. Some clients usually give some energy during a tarot reading. If a card reader is exactly on a small amount of things, they will be inclined to consider the whole thing that he will say to them. This will have an enormous accountability for every card reader.

One of the most efficient ways is asking yourself why you are giving a psychic tarot readings. What are those desires inside of you? Whatever the answers to that question will be your root or foundation in digging a little more deeply to your own self. If you were able to do this, then it will be the ground reason of what will happen in your tarot card readings. If it is blurred, then make it clearer. Making it clearer will help you in getting the best results when you read the cards. For instance, one of the aims of card readers when reading cards is to enlighten and empower people to remind them that they are the ones who are making their own future and they can simply leave those tarot cards in the four corners of that room and be able to put in their minds that their fate is in their own hands. Knowing the person that you are giving your card reading will give you a hint that doing card reading for them has always some mixture of traits. But they are also more or less aware of themselves and tend to be more materially (externally) or spiritually (internal) oriented. This degree of awareness and their basic nature will have more to do with the meanings of their cards than the cards themselves. Remember that each destiny card has a high and a low side of expression. There is no good or bad card. A difficult or challenging card such as a Seven or Nine tends to have a negative expression to materially oriented people and a positive expression to more spiritual people.

But spiritual tarot reading does not mean that only the person who goes to church or wears crystals can get the best readings. What they want to say is someone who looks for the answers to their questions. Actually, Sevens and Nines can both mean marvelous success and accomplishment for spiritually-minded folks. But be practical as the majority of the society is not spiritually minded in this way. It is much more likely that your client or whoever you are doing card reading for is a combination of both spiritual and material and probably more on the material side. This is something you must assess. One way to tell it is if the person you are reading for talks about their life in terms of being the victim of others or by charging others for their tribulations. This is generally a sign that the person is materially oriented and these Sevens and Nines are going to bring them a lot of problems and challenges to deal with.

Being always on the positive side is quite helpful in this matter. Just be reminded that the whole thing, regardless of how it appears, always has a positive effect. Perhaps even the most fearful tragedy in this world has positive results. You should encourage your clients and say that they can endure anything that will come to their way, even if it will be the most difficult future that they will be encountering. Let them know that they are pieces of that design so that they will become stronger in facing and accepting whatever problem in their future.

Let them also realize that if they made these settings, they can learn from them or transform them because they are the ones who made it. Usually, this is what tarot readers express to their clients and the most pleasing tarot reading for them is to see that their clients are successful. Of course, there are conditions that a person does not want to experience, maybe because it is hard to deal with. However, one of the realities that tarot readers are doing is reminding others that even the worst things have a tender and extremely radiant sense after all.

 

Many people believe that symbols or signs play a significant role in every person’s life. In fact, people are surrounded by many types of signs and they take the meaning of those signs without even considering they’re doing so.  However, with regard to reading or translating the symbolic signs of the tarot card, they lack the skill needed to do it. Symbols and images are useful for psychic during psychic readings

Soul has many names and different meanings. But spirit, soul and higher self pertain to one’s energy. It’s that portion of you which is above the physical, transcending time and space. The voice of the higher self is what a person needs to consider when he or she starts to chart the way of psychic freedom.

Do Tarot Decks suit into this?

One of the real symbols that the higher self is trying to provide wisdom to you is once you have a dream which made you feel like some high power is trying to show you something. Interpreting a dream which is very unnatural and kooky is really hard. There are dreams which are disjointed and have no sense or meaning at all. However, these dreams could be filled with numbers, strange people, symbols and colors. Some people rely on a dream dictionary in order to find the real meaning of these dreams. Sad to say, some definitions might not match with the way the higher self selects to communicate thoughts with you.

Ways to Find the Real Meaning of Your Dreams

Start a journey which assists you to get the real meaning of symbols. Some people think that once they dream about coins, this is a sign of money. However, what if the symbol doesn’t fit in the financial system or the coin has bright or odd colors? There are factors to consider before finding the real meaning of the signs.

To know particular signs, first get a tarot card which feels good to you and resonates with you. You need a tarot card which doesn’t have pictures which annoy you.  You have to be comfortable with the card and prepare a nice journal notebook and a pen. Select a card every day and look at the tarot card and look at the images and details and write down the impression which comes to your mind. Record your first impression, reflect and review what you have written. Never refer to a tarot guide about this matter.

Secondly, during bed time, keep a pen and a journal notebook underneath your pillow. If you have a dream which seems significant, write down the dream when you wake up. Ensure to include the number, odd signs and colors which appeared in your dream.  Reflect on your dream, dwell on those symbols, colors and write down the signs’ meaning to you. Ensure you just utilize your first intuitive impression. You might need to assess the notes you did in your dream notebook with the information you did on your impression of colors and symbols of the tarot card.

By means of meditating on the signs of the tarot card, your own interpretation of the soul will develop. You’ll become at ease with the process.

 

 

The tarot is among the different kinds of divination tools that psychics can use to get further explanation during a reading. The Rider Waite deck, which was created by Arthur Edward Waite and first published in 1909, is the most favored deck of choice.

There are 78 cards in a tarot deck and these are divided into 2 Arcana – Minor and Major.

The Major Arcana has 22 cards and corresponds to archetypical characters. People are more likely to remember these cards than others after a reading. These cards are the manifestation of life lessons to be learned and the conscious development from major life-changing situations.

The Minor Arcana cards are actually divided into 4 suits similar to a deck of ordinary playing cards. These cards represent how a person lives and experiences his life. While the Major Arcana cards reflect the bigger picture, the Minor Arcana reflects the moment by moment.

There’s nothing magical about how the cards work. You don’t need to be a psychic to get a result. What’s only needed is to know how to understand the symbolism on every card. On the other hand, the tarot has been recognized for triggering psychic abilities in those who might or might not have realized that they had psychic abilities.

These Tarot cards are very useful to psychics in psychic readings.

To obtain the best result from a tarot reading, it’s best to only concentrate on one issue. Scattered focus means scattered results, so it’s important that you know what’s being asked in order to get the best results. It’s better to ask open ended questions than just asking yes or no questions as those kinds of questions provide limitless possibilities. Attachment to an outcome traps a person in only one possibility. A good psychic would prefer empowerment of their clients and employ such attachment as a teaching tool.

There are a lot of spreads that can be used during a reading. The Celtic Cross is among the favorite card spreads of many readers. The past, present, future spread is one of the most basic spreads used. This layout has 3 cards and gives immediate answers. It’s read from left to right and the last card represents the possible result. Layouts are also employed to get a glimpse into the future. However, it’s best not to ask for over 6 months worth of information as results are considered to be less precise the more time that goes by. If a person needs more information during a reading, wild cards can be drawn to make any reading clearer.

On the whole, the tarot cards are just another form of storytelling and so, must not be feared. Many think that the tarot is evil. This isn’t true. What you’re seeing in a tarot reading is the timeline of the start, middle and probably, end. The result of the story is a manifestation of the world of quantum physics or also known as Law of Attraction. The law explains that wherever the attention of a person is directed with great emotion, that’s what will manifest in his reality. Thus, if one tries to read too far into the future, it’s less precise. How often does a person redirect focus, embrace new desires or change his mind?

That’s the empowerment behind the tarot. It allows psychics or readers to empower their clients by simply teaching them. The tarot doesn’t trap you in a result that should scare you. It’s a tool to remind everyone that they’ve been given the gift of choice.

For the past few years, Tarot has become a term that gave a great impact on the minds of the people.

It can still serve as the warning to become more cautious regarding what is actually happening around you.

 

When it comes to tarot reading, you have to understand that there are four suits involved in it. You have to take note that each of the cards used in this may tell you something about your life. These cards can provide you with insights about a particular aspect of your life. Thus, it is very important to learn the four suits which are involved in tarot reading.

There are 4 suits to the tarot table. These suits are the cups, wands, swords and pentacles. Every suit corresponds to a certain element. These elements are no other than earth, air, water and fire. They are also corresponding for various seasons every year. These include summer, spring, winter and fall.

 

The Meanings of the Tarot Cards in the Suit of Wands

Do you want the Suit of Wands is? Well, this is the “suit” of direction and action. This particular suit seems to be creative and it usually shows the resourceful and imaginative aspects of the nature. The element involved here is fire which is applicable to passion, spirituality and creativity.

More on the Suit of Wands, you should be aware that it is also related to career. The wands act as an indication of the right time when you must consider the options you have. As you do it, you need to evaluate each one of them and you need to move forward by using force. Typically, wands are enthusiastic and warm. They are expressing the value for tradition and they desire to make the environment harmonious.

The meanings behind their tarot cards may involve the concerns about fertility and sexuality. When reading a love tarot, the wands will show sex drive, initiation, call to action and love intentions. On the other hand, they may also represent infidelity, loss of attention and poor sex drive. Wands tend to be strong cards when they are linked to love tarot. They may give fabulous insight about the character of someone’s relationship. These may include the future relations of the person.

 

The Meanings of the Tarot Cards of the Suit of Cups

This particular suit is quite remarkable due to its unique ability. It can provide insight about the emotional landscape of a person. Likewise, it can give insight about our love relationships as well as the relations between us and our family. This is because the suit is interrelated with soul and its journey. The meanings of their tarot card can show the previous traumas which infiltrate our daily lives and what are perceptions regarding the world.

Water is the sign of unconsciousness, the “dream” world as well as the intuitive nature of our consciousness. Water also acts as a mirror and it will show the emotional natures we have and the wounds we have carried on including the gifts that we can give to someone else on an emotional way. The cups serve as the sign of the nurturing qualities which have a strong influence to our lives. They usually show where we faced struggles without having these. When it comes to tarot reading, the suit of cups may unveil the areas of a person’s life wherein the fluid is stuck. Their meanings can present your emotional well-being.

 

The Meanings of the Suit of Pentacles or Coins Tarot Cards

In doing tarot reading, the suit of pentacles usually represents everything that resides within the “physical” world. This involves the material gain, emotional stability, financial security and the fruits you have harvested after exerting effort. This is the suit of expression and realization. It also acts as the suit of your physical body and health. Indeed, you will not be surprised to know that Earth is their element. Based on the deck that is being used in the tarot reading, pentacles might also be illustrated as coins, diamonds and disc.

Pentacles are also known as symbols of the Mother Earth, fertility and growth. This is the suit for the material resources and can be associated to everything that Earth can give to us. On the more practical side, the meanings of their tarot card can be relevant to the concerns about the real estate, industry and property.

Normally, the suit of pentacles represents everything that is associated with money exchange. This involves the situations relevant to banking issues, financial management as well as the inheritance. The meanings of their tarot cards are referring to generosity, trust, egalitarianism and commitment. They may recommend actions about charity, kindness and defending of someone who is being treated unequally.

 

The Meaning of the Tarot Cards in the Suit of Swords

The sword command represents the existing difficulties in life and the obstacles involved. This is the suit which “cuts” over the truth regardless of those feelings which are associated with the challenges in life. With this in mind, the meanings of the tarot cards under this suit could be unsympathetic. These may deal with the great blows to certain defense mechanisms such as repression and denial.

This is the suit which needs utmost willingness with the spiritual inferences which demand new perception and awareness. It has nothing to do with the massive awareness transition. When the swords appeared in the tarot reading, it is necessary to take note that these cards symbolize the “realm” of the brain and not actually the facts of a particular situation. The swords lead over the intelligence and they solicit new clarity and wisdom. The meanings of the tarot cards that are related to this suit may serve as a word of warning for a too much aggressive attitude as well as the situational miscommunications.

This particular suit can predict a disease, emotional disorder and even death. The element that is being associated with this is air which symbolizes truth. The truth could be double-edged in the same way with the sword. It might be either heartbreaking or enlightening. Regardless of the outcome, this suit symbolizes new clarity as well as action.

These are the four suits which are involved in tarot reading. You can use everything you learned here when you read tarot cards alone. May you have fun while doing the reading!

 

Whether you’re an expert Tarot reader or an utter beginner, you may probably attempt to do a tarot reading on your own. It’s ok as you know how to use the cards and you are aware of the power they have in giving guidance or insight in many aspects of your life. Perhaps, you are currently facing an issue or you want to know more about yourself so you use these cards.

However, did you know how you can do correct tarot reading on your own? You have to keep in mind that doing it for your self could end up very confusing or incorrect. This is more likely to happen especially when you commit some mistakes in reading and interpreting the cards. Here are the 7 mistakes which you could make while you read tarot cards for yourself. Of course, there are ways on how you will be able to avoid them.

 

You Do it When You’re Too Emotional or Stressed

For instance, your boyfriend decided to leave you and end up the relationship between the two of you. Now, you use your tarot cards just to know whether he will come back to you someday. Otherwise, you have lost your job and you want to find out when you can have a new job. As you may probably notice, your emotions in these situations are too high and you might be worried about what has occurred. Doing the tarot reading alone for these circumstances might result to an inaccurate reading most especially when you are excessively emotionally invested.

All you need is to be calm and remain focused while you read the tarot cards. If you are not emotionally stabilized at this time, you must never try to do it. Let the time eases your feelings before you continue.

 

You Keep on Drawing Additional Cards

There are times that drawing an additional card is necessary when doing a tarot reading. The main idea behind this is to elucidate a particular card. For instance, you draw two swords which are pertaining to deciding between two choices so you have to draw two more cards to interpret those options.

However, you draw a card which you use as the clarifier and then you draw more cards until you see something that is favorable for you. As a result, you have many tarot cards which give different messages which can make you feel confused. The worst is that you may not be able to tell the true message of the cards. Thus, you are not satisfied with the results as the cards fail to let you have what you desire.

In reading tarot cards for yourself, you must draw clarifiers when needed. Likewise, you only need to draw 1-2 extra cards.

 

You Do More Tarot Readings with Similar Topics or Questions

One of the most common mistakes that tarot readers commit is they read cards again and again with a similar topic. In a tarot reading, having 2 or more readings with the same purpose is not advisable. When you do it for yourself, you must follow one rule and that is to read once for a particular topic. If you really want to do it again, you should wait for the next month to read with that purpose.

 

You Research for More Card Meanings for Something You Like

The truth is that each tarot card comes with more meanings. You have to keep in mind that there are several aspects for every tarot card which makes it complex and rich. On the other hand, it offers the chance of researching various meanings of tarot cards until you finally find what you desire. When doing a reading for yourself, you may probably ignore the usual meaning of the card as you keep on thinking of the meaning you want.

You must resist the temptation. Instead, you should go over your gut. You must never focus your attention on finding the meaning that suits you.

 

Using a Complex Tarot Spread

Most of the people who are fond of reading tarot cards use the most famous tarot spread which is the Celtic Cross. On the other hand, this particular tarot spread is quite too complicated and it is usually inappropriate to be used in most readings. You must go back to the fundamentals in tarot reading.

Remember, a 1-card tarot reading is incredibly powerful most especially when you are sincere in meditating for that card and you go deeper to its value and meaning. For different questions, you just need only some cards to get the answers. You have to refrain from using complicated and long readings which can lead you to confusion as well as convoluted interpretation.

 

Using too Complex Tarot Cards

Use tarot decks with lots of pictures, especially for the minor arcana. A card that just shows 2 cups will be difficult for a beginner to interpret. A Tarot card that shows a couple that are close and attracted to each other holding a cup each will be much easier to understand!

 

Interpreting the Tarot Cards in a Way You Like

The most complicated thing to do when reading tarot cards for yourself is that you may encounter a convenient but too subjective card analysis. When you’re emotionally invested for a specific situation, you have your beliefs and perspectives which will shape your understanding of the cards in a definite way. The reality is that it might be too hard to stay objective and carry professionalism when you read the cards for yourself. This can be more possible if you have a vested attention.

You have to bear in mind that there is nothing wrong in interpreting the meaning of tarot cards for yourself. On the other hand, you also need to consider the opinions of someone who also do it. In order for you to obtain a 2nd opinion, you may post your reading on the forums through the web.

You can ask the help of your friend who is also engaged in tarot reading. Otherwise, you may look for a professional tarot card reader who will assist you in understanding the meaning of the cards you have as you do the reading. Doing tarot reading for yourself seems to be amazingly insightful and powerful once you are able to do it in the right way. As you know the common mistakes to avoid when it comes to tarot reading, you will be more able to make precise tarot readings.

Tarot: The suit of cups

The Suit of Cups first appears in the Venetian deck from the 18th century.

It is one of four suits.

Cup cards show up frequently during psychic readings around love and relationships.

Representing the element of water the Suit of Cups Tarot Card deals with the consciousness on the emotional level that is connected with love, relationships, connections, and feelings.

The Cups card can also reflect religious or spiritual matters as well.

If you receive the Cups Tarot Card you will display that you think with your heart instead of your head.  You would offer spontaneous responses as well as habitual reactions when it comes to situations that go on in your life.  Cups also indicate a level of creativity, fantasy, imagination, and romanticism as this is what they are linked to.  This suit traditionally represents autumn and the west and will be represented by the hearts suit when playing with a regular deck of cards.

This card can represent the season of summer.

An upright card will most likely represent something positive in your tarot reading.  This can be something positive such as happiness.

There are negative aspects to the Cup of Tarot Cards such as when the card appears in reverse.  This could mean an overly emotional feeling or even a disengaged or dispassionate attitude.  This could mean so many things such as having unrealistic expectations.  This all could be caused from repressed emotions that are going on within a person who does not have the ability to express their true self or feelings.  Sadness and depression can also fall in the reading of a Cup Tarot Card.

When a tarot reading is primarily Cups cards then it is most likely that the person is looking for answers for what is most likely an emotional conflict.

Personality Characteristics of the Cups Suit

If your personality relates to the Suit of Cups then you are more likely to have these characteristics:

  • Emotional
  • Humane
  • Creative
  • Imaginative
  • Loving
  • Sensitive
  • Caring
  • Emotional
  • Imaginative
  • Spiritual

If your personality falls in this realm you will be emotionally connected and be able to draw your energy from within yourself.  It is common for the Cup of Tarots to correspond with those who have zodiac water signs such as Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer.

Since water always looks for the path of least resistance you will find that a Cup tarot brings a passive element into play.  More times than not the Cup tarot card is generally about feelings toward each other.  This might come from loving connections with friends or family, recognizing someone who has been sympathetic or regretful of wrongdoing whether it is something you have done to a person or something a person did to you.

 

18 Misguided Myths About Tarot Cards and Tarot Readings

The ancient art of Tarot Reading carries with it a myriad of out-dated and completely unwarranted superstitions. If you’ve ever been told that you should NEVER have a tarot reading when you are pregnant, or that drawing the death card is a preface to your instant, horrific demise, I’m quite comfortable to tell you these myths are far from the truth. This is something all psychics know.

If you ask any experienced Tarot reader if Tarot cards are the devil’s work, you may actually give them cause for a good old belly laugh. Tarot readers can reel off a list of misguided myths they are faced with each day; the most common that Tarot cards are evil and can only be read by psychics and clairvoyants. I’ve heard all of these myths myself, but the more I work with Tarot cards, the greater my understanding grows of the true meaning and capabilities of this ageless psychic tool.

I find it fascinating when using Tarot cards in a group of people who are unfamiliar with this ancient art. The death card always causes an audible gasp followed by a horrified cry: ‘Oh, you got the death card!’ In fact, the death card is not at all what it seems, and it is only one example of the incorrect meaning applied to many cards in the Tarot deck. I’m then inclined to explain the correct meaning of each card, and convince the ‘unfortunate’ death card recipient that it is not time to prepare for the next life. Clearly, my reassurance is met with obvious relief.

A Tarot deck consists of 78 cards. Most traditional Tarot cards are made of wood pulp and printer’s ink, shaped into cards with an image on one side and a pattern on the other. This is exactly what a Tarot card is and what it will always be. Even the digital images on a modern deck of cards are simply a representation of symbols, a picture or art work. What is important is the meaning of each symbol on each specific card.

Tarot reading has evolved throughout history, with origins in the 1500s. Their use as a psychic tool for divination is unclear, but over time human kind has used many different tools to see into the future. In ancient times, people would throw animal bones and chicken entrails, dice and runes, not to mention consuming drugs derived from plants. Even now, psychics can read tealeaf remains of a cup of tea.

Most of this superstition is relatively recent, gathering momentum throughout the last century with the popularity of film and television and a rising interest in the possibilities of Tarot. These many myths have taken a life of their own, embroidered and embellished over the passing of time.

Here we debunk the many unsubstantiated Tarot myths:

 

1. Never buy your own Tarot cards

If this superstition was true, I’d have never learnt the art. I can’t tell you where this myth originated, but regardless that’s all it is. It’s actually important to choose your own cards, as your intuition will draw you to the ones most suited. There are many places to buy Tarot cards, such as book stores, gift stores and even online. There are also many varieties! Enjoy searching for the ones that were meant for you.

 

2. Don’t Let Others Use Or Even TOUCH Your Tarot Cards

It’s one thing to value your cards so much you don’t want them flicked through by just anyone. However, it’s another to fear that the touch of another will bring bad luck to your Tarot deck. I actually encourage people to look through my cards. It helps them to become more familiar with the different images and symbols, and feel more comfortable about the potential of a Tarot reading.

 

3. Psychics Are The Only People Who Can Read Tarot Cards

Whilst it does enrich the Tarot reading if the reader is a psychic, clairvoyant or highly intuitive anyone can learn the art of reading Tarot cards. Most people require formal training and engage in regular practise to build their intuition to a professional level, however some people pick up the art of Tarot reading with ease. With the right resources, you can even teach yourself to read.

In fact anyone in the world can develop the art of Tarot reading. From doctors, specialists and psychologists to police, mathematicians and business people.

And no matter who you are, there is a deck out there for everyone. There is a huge range of Tarot cards available, from wizards and fairies to themed cards such as Lord of the Rings! Just take a look on-line and you’ll see exactly what I mean.

 

4. Tarot Cards are Magical

It’s lovely to believe in magic. But if you think Tarot cards are magic, sadly you have been misled. Tarot cards are made en masse in a factory and packaged in plastic before making the trip to a store near you. They are just ink and paper. It is the psychic abilities and intuition of the reader that gives Tarot cards their sense of mystery. The images and signals triggers cues and clues as to the life and future of the recipient. Magic does not play a part.

 

5.Tarot Cards are Evil

Tarot cards are not evil. The death card is not a bad omen. Forget everything you have heard about this unsubstantiated rubbish! At the end of the day, a Tarot card is just a card. A skilled Tarot reader will use the cards to assist them in a reading; to enlighten the recipient and provide them with guidance for the future in a myriad of ways. It is not possible to use these cards for evil purposes unless the reader has bad intentions and deliberately misguides the receiver of the reading. Have you ever heard of a manufacturer with the power to instil True Evil into a deck of Tarot cards?

 

6. The Tarot Was Invented By Gypsies

This is folklore. No evidence in history suggests that the tarot was invented by gypsies. The exact origin of the Tarot is unsure. However, it is popular belief that Tarot evolved in Europe around the 15th century. Valuable, hand painted cards were created for distinguished aristocrats, and then less expensive versions were mass produced for the public at large.

 

7. The Tarot Cards Are Always Right

A reading by a highly attuned psychic, clairvoyant or intuitive will reveal the possibilities of your future. However, the reality depends on you. The choices you make determine the twist and turns of the days ahead of you. To say the Tarot Cards are always right is a little misguided.

 

8. Tarot Cards Originated In Egypt

A rumour that originated by Court de Gébelin, Tarot cards were mistakenly interpreted into two Egyptian words. It was understood that they meant ‘Tarot’ but when Rosetta Stone translated this in the 1700s, it became clear that this original assumption was a mistake.

 

9. Tarot Cards Can’t Be Read Over The Phone

Oh yes they can! I do it all the time. They can be read over the internet too. For a skilled psychic or clairvoyant, no medium will come between their skills and the recipient. The clients asks a question and the Tarot reader shuffles the cards, and the reader interprets each one. Regardless of the way in which the Tarot reading is conducted, the answer will be the same.

 

10. Cats Drain Your Psychic Ability

Huh? I guess this is not necessarily so odd considering black cats are historically the cause of similar superstition. Regardless of how many cats you have within the boundary of your property, you can rest assured your psychic abilities will not suffer under their influence.

 

11. Pregnant Women Must NEVER Read Tarot Cards

If pregnant women should not read Tarot cards, we should petition for a Health Warning on the packet similar to cigarettes. Pregnant women just as much reason to engage in a Tarot reading as the rest of us; in fact, the impending birth of a new child may give them even more desire to delve into the future.

 

12. You Cannot Conduct A Tarot Reading For Yourself

Whilst it can be challenging to remain detached from your responses, it is possible to read your own Tarot. Writing it down ensures you can double check it after. Compare your cards to a response in a trusted Tarot book. This is a great way to ensure you are impartial to the response.

 

13. Your Tarot Cards Must be Wrapped In Silk

If you like to wrap your Tarot Cards in silk, go ahead! Velvet? Lycra? Go for it! You can wrap your cards in anything you like, but it won’t change the ‘power’ of the cards. I store my cards in a lunch container! It keeps them safe and sound and the high quality of my readings remains the same.

 

14. Tarot Cards Are The Work Of The Devil

Tarot cards are evil, the work of the devil.. there are many ways to say it, but this myth remains untrue. People who WANT to see evil, will see evil. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. But tarot readers help their clients, they guide them on a path to enlightenment and they give them the answers they are looking for to make decisions and get results. Tarot card readers may be professional business people, they may be doctors, nurses, scientists, counsellors. You name it! The devil is in the eye of the beholder.

 

15. Tarot Cards Are Occult

The definition of occult is ‘hidden’. The world occult has been misused over the years and is widely misunderstood. As mentioned earlier, Tarot Cards originated as playing cards in the 15th century, and gained popularity for the symbolic meaning they represented for the recipient.

 

16. The Death Card Means You Are Going To Die

Contrary to popular belief, the death card represents change. It may mean the end of one job, and the beginning of another. The end of a relationship and the opportunity for new love. Are you relieved? Well, you should be. The death card means there is opportunity to change your path and move towards the next stage of your life.

 

17. You Can’t Trust Tarot Readers

It’s ignorant to target an entire group of people and make an unsubstantiated statement such as this. In every profession you will come across people you cannot trust. However there is no reason you Tarot reader is one of them. Choose a Tarot reader you feel comfortable with. Word of mouth is a perfect way to find someone you trust to read your cards! If you are choosing a Tarot reader online, read their reviews to get a feel for client feedback. Trust your intuition – you will know when you have found the right person.

 

18. Reversed Cards Are Always Bad

This is also an unfounded superstition. There are 78 upright meanings that are obvious and clear, and there are also 78 reverse meanings that are not so obvious but can be just as enlightening. By ignoring the reverse cards, you will deny yourself of a complete reading. If you are unsure of the meaning of reverse cards, extend your knowledge by undertaking some extra research and study the alternate significance of the cards. Reverse cards can be just as positive as the other 78 cards!

So there you have it; 18 Tarot card myths debunked. Next time you hear one of these statements made by a friend or acquaintance, do them a favour and put them straight. Send them this article if you think it will help. They can only benefit from the knowledge that they can adopt a new cat AND engage in a reading with a baby on the way!

 

Tarot: The Suit of Wands

 A pack of Tarot Cards consists of four suits:

* Wands

* Cups

* Swords

* Pentacles

 

In this articles, I’ll be discussing the suit of wands, which represents the element of fire and relates to:

* Enthusiasm

* Career

* Job

* Action

* Vitality

* Energy

* Ambition

* Drive

* Reaching for goals, and

* Travelling

 

When the suit of wands features predominantly in a Tarot reading you can expect the person being read (known as the querant) to be of fiery disposition. A “doer”.

The psychic would suspect that the reading is about actions, career and job.

Its important to people of this nature to feel alive and whether this feeling resonates via exhilaration or struggle matters little. For Wand Querants having a purpose is crucial, and in fact is often more important than achieving it.

When a Wand Type achieves their mission they will seek out bigger, better and brighter challenges. They also embrace life full of action and eagerness. Gloominess can descend on Wand Types when there is no action in their life, because its absence is not a state experienced naturally by them.

In fact, intolerance for people experiencing these states that are so unnatural to the Wand Type can become an issue for them.

 

A Short History of the Tarot and Tarot Readings.

It is known that the Tarot has origins dating back many thousands of years. Whilst many historical aspects of the Tarot are unknown or unclear, experts that have studied tarot history have concluded that it likely originated from an ancient Chinese system. Most psychics use Tarot cards.

The Chinese system in question consisted of numerous sticks emblazoned with characters representing their own unique meaning.

Each person in the room would select a stick, which related to individuals current situation. These sticks, similar in size to chopsticks, can still be found in China and the temples of Thailand. They remain a popular with locals who to this day continue to use them for direction. Fortune cookies are a similar concept.

In its present form, the Tarot originated in Italy around the 1300’s AD as a game called Tarocci. (In fact Tarot is the French adaptation of the word Tarocci).

The Tarot was soon to be outlawed as the Church of Rome became increasingly uncomfortable with it due to fears the movement was growing direct competition.

However, the Tarot has survived.

Interestingly, the Vatican boats one of the largest collections of Tarot literature in the world. Many of the articles date back to 12th, 13th and 14th centuries.

Many contemporary Tarot packs are derivatives from a group called The Golden Dawn. The Golden Dawn has its roots in England and was founded in 1888.

Credited with designing three Tarot packs, The Golden Dawn was a secret magical fraternity. The three packs are the Thoth Deck, Golden Dawn Deck, and Rider-Waite Deck.

The Tarot cards illustrated on this website are the Rider-Waite deck and the Morgan Greer deck.

I personally use the Morgan Greer Tarot cards during my psychic readings.

 

What is the Tarot?

Perhaps most famous for their ability to ‘predict the future’, Tarot Cards are in fact beneficial in many other ways.

Tarot Cards can give insight into the origins of particular situations, and even guidance on how to best navigate a given situation. Importantly, Tarot Cards and Tarot readings can also give awareness of the lessons that can be learned from these events.

The Tarot can also be consulted to decide the most suitable course of action from particular situations and provide an opportunity to grow and move on.

The symbols on the Tarot Cards can appear confusing at first. Yet these symbols are recognizable to your subconscious mind and you will be introduced to world of knowledge that has been hidden up until now.

The Tarot is made up of a pack of 78 printed cards consisting of 22 Major Arcana cards (also known as picture cards) and 56 Minor Arcana cards.

During a Tarot reading, the Major Arcana cards explain the psychic roots behind everyday occurrences, whereas Minor Arcana Cards provide insight into everyday events.

The Tarot facilitates a rare depth of learning about spiritual, mental, physical and emotional growth and learning.

A pack of Tarot Cards consists of four suits:

  • Wands
  • Cups
  • Swords
  • Pentacles

These four suits will be discussed in future articles.
