Answer by Eloisement
Apart from killing innocent animals, Santeria has no effect on this earth.

Answer by Neva
Never heard of it.

Answer by Fire Lord
you could very likely be cursed but decursing yourself has to do with who cursed you and what curse, unless the curse is relevant to santeria it wont help you, btw nice subblime reference 😛

Answer by Codex Buranus
I do not practice true Santeria but I’ve done some spell work modeled on a sort of folk magic variant of it, suitable for the uninitiated. I’ve been happy with it.

As to finding a Santero in your city, I don’t know your ethnicity or your cultural background, but my experience is if you’re not perceived as “one of them” they don’t like to deal with you. But just looking for Botanicas usually takes you to the right place — the owners often have a small selection of goods for sale but really make their money doing readings and casting spells for the customers.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : For those who do tarot readings, how long did?

it take you to “memorize” the cards, or actually be able to give readings, without referring to a book?
Btw, I have faery oracle cards, so different from tarot but will be getting tarot too eventually.

Answer by LC
Took me three weeks. I learned the Hebrew aleph beth to make it easier.
Try user the B.O.T.A. (Builder of the Adytum) deck and the Paul Foster Case book, Tarot:A Key to the Wisdom of the Ages.
Google- “tarot paul foster case”
The BOTA deck is used with the book mentioned above.

Too long for me so I quit. I thought because I am good in other areas such as ghost investigations and removal of them and I kinda have sixth sense about people and situations, that I could learn them with no problem. Wrong! They were too hard to remember everything for me so I gave them up, plus my ex-husband threw a major fit when he found them and burned them.

Answer by George
There are 78 cards in a standard Tarot deck which is a lot to “learn”.
If you use them in mixed dignity (reversed) that’s 156 meanings to learn.
I would avoid using them in mixed dignity as I don’t know any professional reader who uses them this way.

If you learn the symbology of the elements (air, fire, water, earth) and the symbology of the numbers (numerology meanings of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) then you have only got 13 things to learn and you will also learn to have a great insight into the meaning of the cards.

For the major arcana it’s worth learning the story behind each card, each card has it’s own story and moral lesson.
The Lovers – Adam and Even in the Garden of eden, temptation. This links to The Devil card which depicts the same couple after the fall from the garden.
The Tower – The Tower of Babel, read up on the mythology on the tower. The arrogance of man.
The High Priestess – Pope Joan, the secret of Rome that there was once a female pope.

If you buy a book and try to learn that way all you are doing is learning someone else’s interpretation.
The real secret to success in Tarot is to develop your own interpretation from the symbology.

Answer by Scarlet MacBlu
There is a difference between memorizing the cards and being able to give a reading without the book. You don’t need to memorize the traditional, pat, canned meanings to read the cards… they’re interpretive tools, you need to interpret them and you don’t need a book to do that.
I recommend not keeping the book with your cards and not looking at it when you do readings, you’ll only confuse yourself. The cards are meant to be read by the image on them, by the impression the reader gets, not by referencing a book each time you move to another card.

That said, I didnt’ understand this about tarot when I started and it took me a couple years to start to let go of the books. I’m not saying the books are useless, either… they are great study guides. The key to “memorizing” the traditional meanings is finding WHY the card might mean what the book says it means. This, too, is an interpretive process. I’ve spent the last four months studying my tarot deck in conjunction with all my books and journalling about the meanings of each card. This helps the suggested meanings stick in my memory because I’m analyzing WHY the Fool might refer to animal instincts or the Chariot might have something to do with equality… once I can see that meaning in the picture, the readings come more smoothly because there’s another layer of meaning I can pull out of the image. Some traditional meanings I disreguard, either due to personal intuition or because the cards I use don’t reference that meaning, but other meanings make a card make even more sense to me then my previous interpretation. It’s a process of building a relationship with them, which can be done with or without a book.

Idealy, however, one should be able to give readings without the book, straight out of the box. My young friend bought her first deck this summer and the guidebook wasn’t in the kit (someone had snatched it or something). She gave me the most uncanny, accurate and deep reading without ever having to look at a book once and never having read cards before. She has a talent for it, but aside from that, she understood HOW to read from the images alone.

When you choose your first tarot, you need to focus on two things. First of all, do you liek the images. Are they appealing to you? Secondly, and perhaps even more importantly, can you look at one of the cards and get a good idea of its meaning right away? Maybe ask a simple question, then look at a sample card and see if you can interpret how you would answer that question based on that sample card… if it strikes you as fairly straightforward, it might be a good deck. If it’s a struggle, even if the pictures are beautiful, then try an easier deck. Maybe start with decks that are based on the Rider-Waite style (which is the most popular rendition and most referenced by tarot guidebooks and teachers), such as the Universal Waite, Hansen-Roberts or Morgan Greer decks (the Official deck of Lo Scarabeo publishing is also pretty good. I like the art style, and it’s a very traditional imagining of depictions). Ask your dealer for guidance if you don’t know what might be good beginner decks… if you don’t love the images of your first deck and want a more artful deck, you can always get a new one after you get used to the imagery and reading style.
Blessings and luck!

Let me ask you a question: Do you think the devil would like for you to get involved in these practices? The answer is yes—and that should be a solemn warning to you.

The Bible is very clear: If we want to please God, we will avoid everything that has anything to do with the occult (even if it seems innocent or harmless on the surface). The reason is because occult practices of any kind could involve you with spiritual forces that are opposed to God and are, in fact , in league with the devil.

I know that is a strong statement—but I can’t emphasize strongly enough how spiritually dangerous it is to follow Satan’s way rather than God’s way. When the Ephesians who had practiced the occult became Christians, they “brought their (magic) scrolls together and burned them publicly” (Acts 19:19). They knew there could be no compromise between their old way of living and God’s way.

Don’t try to resist the “pull” you feel toward the occult in your own strength. Instead, by faith turn to Christ and ask Him to come into your life and give you the strength of His Holy Spirit. Don’t be deceived, but come to Christ, who alone is “the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6).

Well, my mother used to do them and it took about 3 practices for her. But let’s not forget that she did a lot of research on it before purchasing the set.

Answer by Gene
Well, the truth is that a good sign of a person being learned in the tarot is that they haven’t had to “memorize” the meanings of the cards, but that they have learned so much about the cards that they haven’t needed to really focus on “memorizing” anything. I would have to agree with what one of the other answerers said, that learning the tarot is all about reading the symbols in the cards themselves, examining the way the cards relate to and interact with one another, and meditating on the images.

Why doesn’t reading a tarot book and memorizing its contents work? There are many reasons.

Firstly, not every book can be trusted – there are a lot of tarot books on the market that are just out there to make cash off of ignorant people who don’t know the book is crap, not to actually teach them or inform them about the tarot. It’s something I really hate about the tarot industry – the amount of people who abuse the tarot and the general public’s ignorance about it for a quick buck.

That leads into my second point – almost any book that gives you that “informs” you in a way that says “here is a tarot card, this is what it means and that’s the one true definition of the card, and this definition applies to the corresponding card in every deck, regardless of its symbolism. Just memorize what I say and repeat it in readings” is complete and utter baloney.

As I said before, reading the cards meanings really reading them, and any conclusions you come to about the cards should at least be supported by the symbols and meaning you find in the cards themselves. And since symbols almost never mean just one thing, but rather can have vastly different meanings when looked at from different perspectives, there is no way anyone can say “this is the one true definition of this card and its symbols”. When it comes to symbolism, one can only say with any certainty, “this is the definition of this card that makes the most sense to me, and here’s why I think that”.

Also, almost every deck has different images, and contains different symbols, so only in the rarest cases can any two decks’ cards have the exact same meanings. For instance, I know a lot about the meanings of my favorite deck, Rider Waite-Smith, and since that’s spawned many other clone decks I can take a good guess at what they are supposed to mean since they use much of the same imagery and symbolism, but I would not be able to apply the meanings I know for Rider-Waite to your Faery Oracle cards, because their images and symbols are drastically different. So any book that claims that its definitions apply perfectly to a variety of different decks is almost completely ignorant of the importance of truly reading the tarot cards for themselves.

Instead, try really examining the cards in your favorite deck and then ask questions. For instance, “why is this thing here? What is it from? Why was this made in this color? What does this card make me think of, personally? What is in the scenery of this card and what importance does it have? Why are these cards put in the order they are? Examine the cards, compare them to their neighbors, dig down deep into them and find out their secrets. Doing this not only helps you get to know your deck better, but it will help you look more professional, since you can back up your conclusions with data from the cards themselves.

There is also a vast amount of stuff out there that applies to the tarot, and that by learning you can come to a deep understanding of it. Study up on the history of the tarot, mythology from many different cultures, numerology, astrology, alchemy, ancient cultures, the kabbalah, different religions and their history and development, some art history and a dash of semiotics, and you’ll have a lot more tools to work with upon examining the tarot. I know that sounds pretty hardcore for beginners, and none of it is “required” for you to become a reader, but it is incredibly useful to at least examine some of these things briefly, because the more you learn about these things the more knowledge you’ll be able to apply to the tarot. You’ll be able to back up whatever conclusions you come to in readings not only with the symbols shown on the cards themselves, but with the knowledge of where those symbols come from and what they might mean.

So if you end up really diving into the tarot, whether by examining your deck or by researching the elements that come into play in it, or both, you won’t have to memorize anything, because you’ll already know it. And you’ll have come up with those answers with your own power and intelligence, not someone else’s. And that’s the best feeling.

But it does take a long time.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Are you a tarot skeptic, Cold Readings?

I don’t know about you, but some how the cars “whisper” to me; I just began to use it.

Lets say you pull out The Lovers upside down, The Moon upside down, and Four of Spades. Can you get a cold reading of what the question was and what the cards said.
Q. Ex. Is there a future to our relationship?

A. The relationship will end due to secrets coming a float and you will be better off with that person.
without that person

i do not believe in that stuff….MY BELIEF IS IN JESUS…

you might wish to google that…TIRH

Answer by Felicity
Um, I’m not sure what you’re taking about. But, I wouldn’t just outright say to a Client to end their relationship.. That’s kinda wrong, since the Moon is a very tricky card and you didn’t take the last card into consideration.

Looking at The Lovers reversed, we are looking at a relationship that is very childish and most likely based on sex rather than love and commitment. It might also indicate not seeing the other as important. They think of one another as a bad choice or an unwise choice.

The Moon reversed, when combined with Lovers in this case.. It means not seeing the immaturity or chaos that is going on around them or because of their choices. But, it also means to not rush to conclusion and make impractical assumptions about the relationship, person, or whatever. Don’t rush into ending the relationship because…

The Four of Swords tells us that we being way too wild to the point of breaking down. Our bodies and minds need rest from the chaos that the Moon is bringing. If they do not slow down and give each other time to rest from each other, they will be left with things ruined and spoiled.

Overall, those cards in combination explains that these people are or were being too emotional. They need to sort things out before they get back together, they need to see if there is any good in each other. Not just sex or some stupid immature stuff.

Cards don’t whisper to me. They are a tool. I pull them, I translate them and come to a conclusion based on what I know about the cards from study. I’m not a fan of.. Intuition readings. If you we’re able to see the future based on intuition, I don’t see why you need tarot.
