Question : Can someone point me in the right direction with tarot card reading…?
I just recently purchased a deck of tarot cards for myself, before I even did my first reading I looked at each card individually and really took time to see it. I then did the celtic cross layout. Everything seemed spot on but I was just wondering what website there are to explain each card a little more in depth then the little paper book that came with it. Other layouts and any other information would be greatly appreciated.

I found these websites to be useful:
You can also join the forum at aeclectic.net to talk tarot with a number of people.

I would suggest several websites. Google ” Tarot Card Meanings” When I was learning, I had private lessons but I also bought several books and found that I got something a little different from each of the books. Meanings can vary.
Whatever meanings you decide on, spirit will work with what the card means to you, so you don’t have to be concerned that there is any right meaning for a card.
Remember that each card has multiple meanings and it is the psychic message that counts. If you aren’t getting that, your accuracy rate will be about 20%. To develop your psychic ability, meditate daily.
Question : Is anyone familiar with the meaning of an Native American Tarot Deck?
I am studying Native American Tarot by Magda and J.A. Gonzalez….. I am looking for a good site that explains the way to read the cards…..I am reading Star Spider speaks but it does not really tell how to read the card when chosen just the meaning behind the card….I am stuck on #1 Hosteen Coyote?
Answer by …♦…EAH…♦… Z = Z 2 C
There is only one deck, and that is the Rider Waite.
IF it is #1, then that is the Magician.
Answer by Chris Ancor
It means the same as any other Tarot deck. Not a thing.
Answer by Ghost of society
There never has been any tarot cards in any native American culture. Just like there has never been any native American zodiac…but there are some people who make this stuff and slap the native American name on them, then put it on the market and turn a profit from it.
The people who buy this stuff think that it is something of great significance…when it does not mean anything in any native American culture.
A lot of this stuff comes from people who are known as new age people who will take things from various cultures and twist it into something that it is not or totally invent something that is not from any culture.
I know that I will get thumbs down for this answer…but you people have to hear the truth that this stuff does not exist in any native American culture.

Ridiculous. There is no such thing as a Native American tarot. Nor a Native American horoscope. Nor animal spirit guides or animal totem spirits. Nor any of the other nonsense things the new-age crowd has attributed to us.
This is exactly why we no longer share our spirituality….it gets co-opted, twisted into something barely recognizable, and sold for a profit.

Magda and Gonzalez, huh? So, what tribe do they belong to? J.A. is from El Salvador. So, it’s very highly unlikely he is Native American. (He’s on fb)
“A unique series of Native American scenes created by Magda Weck Gonzalez, of Shawnee heritage, and illustrated by her husband, J.A. Gonzalez, the cards feature Native American history, symbolism and folklore including material related by a Blackfoot medicine man, Harry Sparrowhawk”
The statement “of Shawnee heritage” means she is NOT a tribal member. It means someone in her family tree supposedly was one. Who knows how far back that was. Harry Sparrowhawk is a “Blackfoot medicine man”- very funny considering there is no “Blackfoot tribe”. There is, however, a Blackfeet Nation in Montana. But, if Harry really was a Native, he would know that. And, as a Medicine Man, he would know the ways of HIS people, not the ways of ALL Native people.
“The cards depict different aspects of daily life from a variety of Native American tribes including Apache, Arapaho, Cherokee, Cheyenne, Chippewa, Comanche, Hopi, Huron, Inuit, Iroquois, Kiowa, Navaho, Papago, Pima, Pueblo, Shawnee, Sioux, etc.” http://bellirosa.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=3496¤cy=USD
There is no single “Native American culture”. Of the tribes listed above, the culture is COMPLETELY different. It is NOT possible to lump these tribes into ANY category of similarities beyond the fact that they are all Native American tribes. They all speak different languages, have different customs, and different beliefs. You CANNOT throw them all together and decide they are all the same.
So, if you want to know about Native Americans, it’s probably best to learn from REAL Native Americans- not newage wannabes looking to sell books to suckers who actually believe that Native Americans have tarot cards. Sorry, kid, but you’ve been duped.

What?? We have tarot cards? When did we get those? I wonder if I can consult them to find out about my spirit guide? Maybe they will give me winning lottery numbers? Do you think they will tell me which slot machine to pull? Maybe you are supposed to be a shaman to use them right? Do they have hot girls lounging around with wolves on them?
Answer by Ii’ni’ da’ałhosh
We don’t HAVE tarot cards! Some idiots just slapped a bunch of incompatible “native american” images from different cultures and traditions and called it a tarot deck.
There’s no way any native could tell you what “meaning” the creators of that deck assigned to OUR images and symbols. You might as well assign your own meaning to it, it would be just as valid.
