Introduction

For anyone interested in using Tarot cards the hardest part initially is interpreting them. Most web sites giving "definitions" or "meanings" tend to have just a few lines and quite frankly that's not very helpful; particularly to a beginner. It's all very well saying the "x" of hearts means this, but how do you use that definition for a love reading, or a work reading? Our definitions are split into introduction, general, work, love, finances, health and spirituality, which we hope you will find a lot more useful and a lot more meaningful in the Tarot spreads you use.

These interpretations are meant as a guideline. No tarot meaning is "set in stone". They are meant to make you think. For most cards you will probably feel that our definition is right, but if a particular card calls to you in a different way then don't be afraid to go with your intuition.

Different decks sometimes call some suits and cards somewhat differently. We have used the notation for the decks that we use. Just in case there's any confusion some alternative variants are: Cups: Hearts, Pentacles: Coins, Wands: Batons, sticks.

Our regular visitors will notice that we now have reversed meanings for both the major arcana and the minor arcana.
