Can someone help me with using a regular deck of cards as tarot cards?
I’d really like to learn how to use a regular deck of cards as tarot cards. I’ve been told my grandmother could do this accurately, but she passed away when I was a small child, so I can’t ask her.
Can anyone give me any tips or links for doing this?
Please, if you have a rude comment, don’t even post.
Thank you.
Apparently, it’s difficult for some people to read.
If you have nothing productive to say, no need to even bother commenting.

Why do tarot cards have contradictory meanings?
I bought a deck of tarot cards, but it’s confusing. It seems like each card can mean twenty different things, and some of them are at opposites. What’s the deal? Is it just a scam?

Suggestion by Beatrix
The ability to read come from the reader, not the cards.

See, a lot of people think tarot cards hold some kind of energy, are some kind of magic, yadda, yadda, yadda. They’ll think they have to “cleanse” their cards or that the cards “aren’t working” or are “mad at them” or a bunch of other stuff.

That’s not the case, though. The cards aren’t magic, and don’t hold any more energy than plastic-coated cardstock holds (which is probably none).

It’s not a scam, but the contradictory meanings ARE deliberate.

Basically, the intuition comes from the reader – the cards are just a tool to help the reader get into the right frame of mind. Any tool would work – playing cards, dice, crystal balls – but some people are just more comfortable with tarot than with other tools. When the reader is in the right frame of mind, he or she knows what the card means because the reader basically matches the right meaning with whatever he or she already subconsciously knows to be true.

Now, that said, I HAVE seen some pretty freaky card results that leave almost no room for interpretation. So I have to think that a person’s own energy can, at certain times, be an influence on how the cards end up when they are shuffled and laid out. But the cards aren’t magic.

I’m a firm believer that what we often call paranormal is only what we cannot explain YET, and that science and spirituality are not in conflict.

They are open to interpretation by the reader.

Suggestion by L. E. Gant
Usually, each card has two meanings, one when right way up and one when upside down.

However, because these meanings are only symbolic, they can seem to mean many more things, depending on the scenario of the meanings, but there are still only two given meanings.

Also, the other cards in a reading can set the scenario, and hence affect the “strength” of a card with those two meanings. That’s why similar cards can mean very different things. That’s why I usually prefer a layout that has multiple cards – single card and three-card systems are too simple to convey a complete sense of what the quester wants to know.

If you are learning how to read, then the first thing to do is build up your own meaning for each card. Give yourself a picture to work from, using the basic meaning of each card. It takes a while to figure out what your own symbolism is for each card, but once you have it, and can apply it without looking up the individual cards, then you start to get a feel for how to state the “answers”.

BTW, the cards have NO magical content. They are simply pieces of cardboard with pretty pictures and numbers on them. the magic, such as it is, comes from the reader and the quester. They set up a relationship which allows the reader to apply a meaningful scenario to the reading, and it can appear to give totally different readings, despite the cards.

    The 7 of hearts represents longevity in gullibility.

    The regular cards are a subset of the Tarot and are called the minor arcana. They are supposed to be older than major arcana and are used for divination and spiritual transformation.
    In the modern playing cards’ deck — wands from tarot become clubs, swords become spades, cups become hearts, and pentacles become diamonds.
    You can find the divination meanings from wikipedia — just type Tarot in the search box.

    Well, the face cards are the big deal cards. Aces, of course, already appear in the Tarot deck, as do pages (Jacks). Let’s see, diamonds are coins, spades are swords, clubs must be cups. Idk about hearts. Anyway, here’s a link how you can assign a regular deck of cards to a Tarot deck, except, of course, you have 78 cards in a Tarot deck and only 52 in a regular deck. Burt the link gives you the meaning of each card.

    It’d called Cartomancy and as others have said there are a number of sites out there with guides. YouTube has a lot of videos on it too, but most of them are deathly dull and often contradictory.

    You may need to mark a lot of the cards in your deck with a short line at the top and a long one at the bottom or you’ll not know if they have come right up or reversed and that makes a difference to the interpretation.

    Tarot cards real meaning is Bull

    Each tarot card has its own traditional meanings. When combined with other cards this changes.

    As mentioned it is the reader who does the work, the cards are just tools or stepping stones.

    Each reader has to find their own way with their own cards, this requires time & building a relationship with them.
