Part 1: Do you struggle with reading reversed tarot cards? In this part I will give solutions to make reading reversed tarot cards more easy for you.

Part 2:  You can read here how reversed tarot cards could help you to make your reading more specific.


Why should I read reversed tarot cards?


  1. Reversed cards can expand your horizon.” In my opinion, the more combinations you can get with tarot cards, the more detailed you can be with your tarot readings. For me it has some imbrication lapping with categorizing and making indications. If you would categorize all the people in the wold in 16 categories (like the myers brigg type indicator for example) most people will indentify themself with one category. On the other hand: this category wouldn’t tell a detailed story about that person. People who know themselfs well might say: well, I am a category 1 person but sometimes I am a category 2 person and I can empathize with a category 3 as well…. This is because people are much more complicated and unique then these 16 types. It is very unlikely that there are only 16 kind of people walking around on this earth. This is why we call the Myers Brigg types: an indication. Fortunatly we have 78 tarot cards, and each card upright has more then 16 meanings. Together with the reversed position a tarot card has over 32 meanings. That is 78 times 32 = 2496 tarot cards meanings…I think that is much closer to the truth if you would descibe a person with tarot cards.
  2. Reversed cards create more overview for (beginning) tarot readers” Most beginners think that adding reversed cards in a tarot reading is more difficult then only reading upright cards. The opposite is true because reversed tarot cards tell us which card accentuate your tarot reading reading. If you know where the accent lies in a tarot reading you will create more overview in your reading. An reversed knight of wands tells you something about the energy of the card. This knights energy is scattered and this is important to know for the further reading. To create overview in all the tarot card meanings this card has, you can now make your choice more clear, especially when you take a look at the surrounding cards and read the cards together.
  3. Acceptance” Using reversed cards would be a nice excercise for people who “have to” turn their cards upright. Just to see for yourself how you react on it and what does it tell you about yourself? Do you get itchie when you read this? Perfect,  give it a try!
