So i am in a dilemma...in my place,theres no source from where i can get a deck..so i ordered for one to my friend...
but i forgot to mention about what type of card i needed..
to be truthful,being a complete illiterate about tarot cards,i didnt actually know that there are many types of cards..:)
but i took print out of meanings of cards...and started learning..
but when i received my courier,i was really upset as i received something else..that was Tarot of druids and then only,i could understand tht i had been learning meanings of Reider waite deck...
But i really loved my deck..
and i see,that there are differences in pictures on cards also names...
like Bochra for Fool,Lug for The Magician and so on..
So i would like to ask you..
1)Does each card in both deck depicts the same meaning?
for example,do Lug in Druids and Magician in Waite cards depicts the same meaning?
2) can i use meanings of Waite cards while i spread and read Druids tarots ???
Note:- in manual,meanings of each card is gievn but i kindly request you to clear my doubhts..
Blessed Be )0(
The meanings of each deck differ slightly because when each new author illustrates a deck they change "what you see."
Okay, that said, the TotD and the R/W are VERY similar and at your stage of development you cannot possibly pull all of the subtle meanings out of the cards. This means that using the "standard meanings" you get from the cards you have and the book you have will be fine. Go here: easytarotlessons.com. Don't worry--it's free. Take the free course: podcast, read the lessons. You will master the tarot faster than you can imagine. It is not hard, but you do need a good teacher, which is why I recommend the free course.
Right now you need to develop GOOD tarot habits and avoid bad information. As you develop a bit more skill and understanding of the deck you have, you will be MUCH less reliant on the book you have. Always look at the picture first and ask what it is saying to you. Then look at the situation ()the question you are asking). See how these work together. The book will be your third, and least reliable, source of information. But don't quit. And keep asking questions!
thank u so much,Dusty
I recommend that you put aside any book for now and beginning immersing yourself in the images of your cards. You love the depictions on your new deck. Select one card each day. Then journal what YOU see in the card and what it feels like for you. Form your own meanings, trust your intuition.
If you do this on a regular basis, you will learn from the divine the meanings of tarot cards.
you're welcome. :-)
Hey Dusty, figuring out what the images in the cards, and how this relates to your question/situation is the very heart of the "Madame Tezra Minimalist Method of Reading Tarot", which I developed. Thank you for your unwitting support.
thank u shadow dancer
Greetings Durgadas! You have received evry good feedback from some of our most knowledgeable members. There is no 'one way' to learn the Tarot in my opinion. Just hang in there and don't get too overwhelmed, it can be a lot of information, especially if English is not your first language. I also suggest learning the rider/waite deck forst for the more traditional meanings, it can provide a foundation from which you can build on and chang as you grow and learn more.....Tegwedd also has a good point, she has a wonderful method of which you might want to learn more about. Happy you're here, Blessings, Ianna:)
Oh-Forgot to mention, I have recently began working with more than one deck at a time for a reading. For example, I might use one of my favorite decks, The Robin Wood deck as the primary deck for the reading but then schuffle an oracle deck (Wild Wisdom by Cavendish is phenonminal) also draww a few cards from that deck, adding them to the already laid out cards for the reading. So far I'm very pleased, the oracle deck adds more meaning and additional info. A felow, Tarot Oracle, on utube uses this method and often uses multiple decks for a reading. Interesting.....Ianna:)
