How to read tarot cards?
Me and my friend got tarot cards… they came in a wizardology book
we know how to set them up but can’t figure out how to actually read them… like what word we’re supposed to look at.
here is an example:
we turn the card over
it has a frog w. rain on it and in a white box it says moisture.
then it has 6 words around it.
A Man or Boy
An Old Man
which do I read?

your deck doesn’t sound like a standard deck, most tarot cards have court cards, which are 4 suits, swords, pentacles, wands and cups they go from ace-10 and then face cards, much like your normal playing cards then there are 21 major arcana cards each numbered and labeled(starting with the fool and ending with the world

Those sound more like oracle cards but there are literally thousands of Tarot decks so it could be one. Usually they come with some kind of booklet to explain things – you pick your cards and then look up what the card means – however the words you have printed there are a start 🙂
To read Tarot cards (without the use of a booklet…) one looks at the pictures bearing in mind the petitioiners question, and one looks for clues – what part of the picture do you notice first? What does any item in that picture represent to you? ask the petitioner if it has any relevence to them as well. The picture gives you hints as to the answer. For instance a set of cards a friend has shows a picture of a girl sitting in a tree (as you do) tied to a length of string, the other end is held by a woman – I said there was maybe some kind of holding back of the girl and maybe ‘bringing down to size’ since to me the lady holding the string looked kinda cross. The petitioner said that she had had problems with her mother and in one situation her Mother had wanted her to do one thing but she went ahead and did another – so you can see the imagery all ties in 🙂 That’s how you read cards. It does take practice.
From your card there – frogs are amphibians (obviously) so they need water to live, water tends to be connected to emotions – I know this from other research – don’t think I’m getting it all from your card description 🙂
Man or boy – not sure about that one without seeing the card
Haste or uncertainty – well ever heard the term ‘more haste less speed?’ – rain and those words to me may mean that any situation or problem should not be rushed at as there will be obstructions to the action (rain I am seeing as representative of something that makes you go ‘oh darn’ if you’d planned a day out in the country for instance)
Reflection – well you get reflections in water, and that works two ways, reflection reflecting something back at you – something you are not seeing perhaps – or reflection to mean deep inner contemplation.
Stability – how they get that from the picture described…. again I’d have to see the card.
an old man – sounds like they have frogs perceived as male – so maybe have a think about your question and how a male psyche would aproach it, for instance taking rain again as our example, most guys will just shrug and walk out in it without too much complaint – women tend to flap rather more and moan about shoes 🙂 So is the petitioner being told to take a more stoic approach to something?
anyway – hopefully from my ramblings you should have an idea of how to at least begin to read the cards – I’d invest in a decent tarot book if you’re serious about reading – although you may need a more standard deck to start with too – get one who’s artwork appeals to you 🙂

Suggestion by epic-LoVe
I personally cannot but there are many books on the subject, most are very easy to learn from. If you want, you could also just go see a tarot card reader. Some are cheap and can help you in the love department, good luck!!

tarot reading is the devils favorite game to play with people. your opening yourself up to some very bad things.
maybe you should leave the witchcraft alone and
Pray to the LORD Jesus for comfort and guidance He will show you the way.

Can you “learn” to read Tarot?
Is it by intuition only or can you learn to read Tarot cards?
Suggestion by Jen [Ghoast Kitteh]
Of course you learn. You only read with intuition after you have learned all the meanings and whatnot.
