Free Tarot Card Readings
Tarot is a deck of seventy-eight playing cards. Tarot card reading has been around for centuries, and has increased in popularity since the introduction of the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot deck and its associated book, the Pictorial Key to the Tarot, in the early twentieth century. Tarot cards offer a rich set of meanings and themes, making them particularly useful in divinatory readings. Free Tarot readings are featured on our Free Tarot Readings page. Fourteen Tarot spreads, including the Celtic Cross, Astrological, Relationship, Daily Tarot, Planetary, Birthday, Mandala, Star, Tree of Life, Past-Present-Future, Past Life, Tetraktys and Cross and Triangle layouts are available. Themes of the Tarot suits and meanings of the Tarot cards are available on our Tarot Card Meanings page. Our free Tarot readings and Tarot card meanings are presented with Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot cards.
Free Playing Card Readings
The familiar English style poker and bridge deck of fifty-two playing cards has long been used in fortune telling. Some readers prefer playing cards over Tarot cards, or like to look at questions from different perspectives. Playing cards, like Tarot cards, originated in Renaissance Europe. Playing card reading has existed, along with Tarot reading, for centuries. Playing cards may be laid out in the same spreads Tarot cards are. While there are some differences between the interpretation of playing card spreads and Tarot spreads, the elemental correspondences of the suits are very similar. Our Free Playing Card Readings page offers ten playing card spreads and their meanings, including playing card specific influences like multiple cards of same rank and same color.
Personal Birthday Tarot Cards
While Tarot is more often used to explore specific questions through readings, it is also possible with Numerology and Tarot to establish a set of personal Tarot cards for one’s name and birth date. Discover your personal birthday Tarot cards, with detailed meanings for each card and the influences of the cards on each other, here at our Birthday Tarot Cards page.
Free Minchiate Tarot Card Readings
The ninety-seven card Minchiate Tarot deck originated in the same European Renaissance period as its seventy-eight card cousins. The Minchiate deck is seldom used anymore for Tarot games, but is still popular in Tarot readings. The additional nineteen cards in the deck, which reflect the elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water, Human Virtues and the Zodiac, may offer additional insights into difficult questions. Free Minchiate Tarot readings featuring the Celtic Cross, Relationship, Astrological, Planetary, Tetraktys, Past Life, Star, Cross and Triangle, Birthday, Mandala, Past Present Future and Tree of Life Tarot spreads are availble here whenever you like.
Tarot Card Meanings
The Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot deck, based on extensive studies of Tarot reading and interviews with Tarot readers by Arthur Edward Waite, and beautifully illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith, is the most well known deck in contemporary Tarot. The illustrations on the cards are designed to convey not only the more obvious meanings in the foreground images, but also the more subtle implications featured in the backgrounds. The Rider in Rider-Waite-Smith credits the Rider and Sons Company of England, which originally published the deck. Perhaps more important than the deck itself was Waite's accompanying book, The Pictorial Key To The Tarot, which explains the meanings of the Tarot cards and the philosophy behind them. Probably the greatest achievement made by Waite with the publication of his Tarot deck and the Pictorial Key to the Tarot was the meanings he provided for the cards. He incorporated the numerology and elemental correspondences behind the Tarot card meanings, along with his extensive research, into the images on the cards, and also explained them in his book. We hope that our Tarot Meanings information will help you to better understand the concepts and philosophies behind Tarot divination. Individual meanings for each Tarot card are available on our Major Arcana cards 1 - 10, Major Arcana cards 11 - 20, Wands cards, Cups cards, Swords cards and Pentacles cards pages.
