Question : Tarot Card Reading – any psychics out there who know how it works?
I went for a short tarot card read. She said some cool, interesting and relevant things, but she could not see the answer to the specific question I was asking.
Does that mean she was hiding bad news?
Answer by Miss 6
No it doesn’t mean she was hiding bad news necessarily -sometimes its just the readers style. Also sometimes the cards will not reveal all answers to questions.
Answer by John
Believers have different views on this it seems, but the Tarot deck is perceived as a tool that facilitates self-discovery via mystic forces that apparently influence people. The symbols are a kind of communication that the tarot card reader interprets using their psychic insight.
Rationally speaking, however, the tarot card is only a prop for subjective validation, e.g., cold reading. Psychic frauds use tarot to give readings to clients since it make them seem more spiritually knowledgeable. So, regarding your reading, it’s simply that she couldn’t think of something mystic and spiritual to say, that’s all. I hope you didn’t waste any money.
Answer by Scarlet MacBlu
No. She probably didn’t understand your question or didn’t think your question was important. Once she got a look at the cards, she probably got distracted by what she thought they meant rather than trying to apply them to your question. I’d say she was probably a bit unprofessional and unhelpful. If I were you, I wouldn’t go to her again. Find a better reader, if you must, or buy some cards yourself and do your own readings.
Either that, or you asked her the kind of question that cards can’t answer. No one can predict the future… if you asked her for some fact about the future, no one could tell you. The future changes with each choice you make. Perhaps she was answering as best as she could to help you make good choices to acheive your goals and CHANGE the future, which, if you ask me, is much better than just trying to guess some future that you can’t do anything about.
Answer by The Human Brain
It works by randomly pulling out a picture of something, and putting a meaning to that.
Otherwise, it means they are perfect beings who pick out the right card anytime, whatever that is anyway even if it was right. So any card can be ‘right.’
See? Not even ‘psychics’ question any logic.
It means she was hiding that she wasn’t a psychic, like 95-99% aren’t. Anyone with cards, who may or may not have varying degrees of psychic ability.
Question : What does it mean if you draw all court cards of the same suit in a tarot reading?
I did a simple 3 card reading the other day on any potential for love in my near future (I’m in a major dry spell folks!) and I got 1.Queen of Wands 2.Knight of Wands 3.Knave of Wands…….I felt a little frustrated trying to interpret it. So meditating on “love”, I reshuffled and drew one more card. It was the King of Wands! I’m so confused!
Answer by Julia M
The court cards in this context can indicate many things, and you’ll have to decide which one it is according to your situation.
(1) They signify actual individuals.
(2) They signify the personality traits of people involved, rather than their situations.
The Queen of wands can indicate the qualities you need to adapt or experiment with before you get that potential love. The second card might indicate your love and his attitude or how you see him. And so on.
Answer by vid
Well, wands generally refer to people that are no nonsense, business minded, and generally smarter people. Perhaps you should be focused more on something that you can give to a job or project than into another person. In addition, this could also be pointing to meeting someone with similar characteristics. Keep in mind, each Court Card in this suit means something different, but I gave you an all around idea of what this suit means for those court cards.
