Tarot Cards Meanings and Instructions FAQ

Can Tarot Cards Predict the Future?

Tarot can give us a picture of the present moment and as the future springs from the present, they can give an educated guess about the future.

Think of a card reading as a weather forecast: given the present circumstances, this is the probable outcome if all factors remain the same.
Are you unhappy about the prediction? Change the conditions and the result will change accordingly.

There is no fate set in stone, your future is first and foremost in your hands!

How Can Tarot Cards Help Me?

Tarot cards are a great tool for self-exploration and learning to read tarot cards is a great way to understand yourself and your situation.

Tarots can work as a bridge between the conscious and unconscious mind, helping you understand better your concealed emotions and the hidden elements of a situation.

Once your thoughts and feelings are clarified, it will be easier to determine an appropriate course of action to influence the factors you can directly control.

Tarot cards can disclose information that escaped your conscious mind, help you find and answer and make advised decisions.

What about card reversals?

Some readers like to give a different meaning to the cards that appear upside-down in a spread and some don't give reversals a special significance.

Someone believes that the tarot cards meanings of 78 cards have  enough nuances, they already represent all the full span of the human experience and reversals only confuse the readings.

Others reckon that reversals add depth and precision to a reading.

Personally, I find that using only upside cards offers a more direct significance to the cards and doesn't add unnecessary negativity to a reading.

What is a Significator?

In some spreads a card is used to represent the querent. The card is not used in the reading itself but it serves as a focal point.

The significator can be selected by the reader or the querent based on physical or psychological characteristics.
