I went to my local Magick shop and bought a deck of Terot Cards, I got the Wiccan Terot Deck. It was the most normail they had, There are many different kind's. They didnt have the Troth Deck.

I think im having some trouble reading them, I know on some you have to say a prayer before you shuffle them. But iim not shure if im reading them right. Are you sopoto try to work the cards together to make sence? Also, Do you draw other cards to place on the Title cards (ex, The Princess, The King, The queen, The prince)?

Thanks
Meghan

P.S I lay them out in eather the four seasons, or celtic cross lay out.

Are Cards supposed to given to a person rather than bought?

the way you read your cards is entirely up to you. And yes, it is supposed to be better to be given a set of Tarot cards rather then buying them for yourself, but I don't think it's necassary.

I'd recomend that before you start you look through your cards and just get a feel for them, get to know them- nothing like knowing their various meaning off by heart, just the images and the links. Many cards have various elemental themes on some cards or recurring images, become familliar with these and how they fit together.
I'm not familliar with the spreads you use, but if you aren't entirely confident that you're laying them out right look up others and play around with ideas.

A lot of people use the cards in a lot of different ways and as far as I can see there is no right or wrong way, just something that suits you.

What do you mean exactly by "having some trouble reading them"?

The point which I should first wish to understand is whether the pious or holy is beloved by the gods because it is holy, or holy because it is beloved of the gods.

The Thoth deck was created by a man named Aleister Crowley. Do you know who Mr. Crowley was, Meghan? Perhaps you'd like to check him out before buying a Thoth deck. I'm not trying to be smart, I just want you to be informed.
You should always say a prayer of protection before doing a reading. I find it much easier to do a reading for others; and almost impossible when I try to do a reading for myself. Some people like to use a Court card for a significator; I do not because it takes one or two cards out of the deck. I use the Celtic Cross spread pretty faithfully, and sometimes a yes/no spread for a quick answer. I think the Ryder-Waite deck is most helpful to beginners. The imagery contained on the cards helps you to make quick associations to their meanings. You should also keep your cards wrapped in silk, or in a box that you buy for that purpose. Never let your cards touch a surface without the silk under them. Sleeping with your new deck under your pillow for a few nights is helpful, it gives them your "vibrations". Once a month, during the Full Moon, expose your cards to the light of Her Grace for about 30 minutes, to cleanse the cards. Never, never, never let anyone touch your cards without your permission! It is best to approach a reading with a serious, but relaxed state of mind. Laughing, smoking, drinking, is not conducive to a good reading. The more you work with your cards, the more attuned you will become to them, and them to you.

I was recently Given a set of tarot cards.

I find it hard to remember all their meanings and am so sure how to lay them out.
Could anybody please help me by telling me how to cut the cards properly?

:ghost: I'm just starting down the Tarot path myself. Jeff Belanger's book has an informative chapter on tarot. There are a number of patterns to use for a reading. Basically, one should shuffle the cards while thinking of a specific question, then cut the deck into three piles. The cards should then be re-stacked so that the bottom group is on top. So the three piles are 1,2,3, from left to right. Then they are stacked 3,2,1. There are a lot of books on Tarot out there too. Did your deck come as a kit with a booklet in it? Hope this helps.

Tarot cards are artistic representations of characters that are designed to increase one's spiritual and/or psychological awareness. Some people believe they can be used for spirit communication. The art of tarot has been around for a long time and can actually be practiced with a regular deck of playing cards. There are many versions of the tarot deck just as there are various designs of playing cards. I have Santa Clause playing cards, Casino cards from Reno, History cards, Baseball playing cards, George Bush, John Kerry, and even Led Zeppelin playing cards. :ghost:

Thank you Boris. i know what tarot cards are, I just didn't know what "terot" cards were. Are you saying it was just a bad spelling? I thought it might have been something new I hadn't heard of.

:Wall: Oh! Maybe there is such a thing as terot cards! If not, maybe someone should create some. I think I responded to both questions as though they came from the same person. When I spend too much time in front of the computer strange things happen to my eyes...like in Poltergeist! I hope you didn't think I was mocking you. I think it would be perfectly natural for some folks to as what tarot cards are. :)

:) Oh good! See Petunia, even I can't spell at times. That last line the word was supposed to be "ask", not "as" in reference to tarot cards.

Meghan, are you talking about "terot cards" or "tarot cards"? Look at the front of the box so you know how to spell it correctly, please.

If you are doing a reading for someone else, have them focus on their question while you shuffle the cards. Then the querant should cut the cards with their left hand.

LMAO Boris! Sorry, your posts are too funny! Anyways...preteen...Bathory has given you some excellent ways to start off and get you going. When you got your deck of cards did you try looking for a beginers set. Normally they have cards with books with them to show you what each means in each tense and which type of card cuts (spreads) will work best for what your use is for them. Most imporatnt of all! These are your cards...DO NOT LET ANYONE ELSE TOUCH THEM!!! Secondly, please you a prayer of protection for your deck. These are not toys! As with any use of a paranormal tool...you want to have a protection to ward off any evil spirits! It takes losts of patients, understanding, and time to work with them. And many studious hours of memorization for each card in each postion...anywhere from a yes, no to a 3 card cut (Past, Present, and Future) to the Celtic cut...11 card spread (that's my favorite too) Until you feel like you have a grip on the understanding and use of the tarot cards...you should not do a reading on anyone...unless it's your dog...just kidding! But there is nothing worse than misinterpreting a card and being wrong. If you get stuck feel free to pm me and I can help you out! Good Luck....Julie
