What are the meanings of regular playing cards when they are normal and inverted in a tarot card reading?
I am trying to learn how to learn how to do tarot card readings with regular playing cards, but every website I have gone to so far have not said what the inverted meanings of all the cards are. I know it would be a lot easier to just go out and buy a regular deck of tarot cards, but my parents refuse to allow me to get them. Help please?

There is a website that gives the equivalent meaning. Give me a few minutes to find it.
Couldn’t find it. I starred you Q for my contacts who are better at this than I.

It means that the energy represented is hidden or not yet manifested. A lot depends on your own intuition. I read the cards & practiced some other psychic reading tools, & it backfired on me-giving me chronic headaches & a nervous condition which was cured through meditation. Best is to follow your parent’s advice.

Well, I think the main reason they don’t usually give the meanings for reversals, are that most modern playing card decks can’t make reversals (the cards are usually mirrored for both sides.) However, for tarot, there are three modes of deciding meanings for reversals that would work for a playing card as well, as described in the book The Cartomancer’s Key :–
Consider it to be the opposite of the upright meaning.
Consider it to be the negative side of the upright meaning (like the downside of a card meaning “success” might be “responsibility” or “hard work”)
Consider it to indicate a blockage of the card’s upright meaning (so for a card that would upright mean “success” it could mean “inability to achieve success.”)
As for the upright meanings, the same book lists a method for reading them.
Hope this helps.

How do I perform a tarot reading with playing cards?
I already know the meanings of each card, but how do i perform it like the way in “Blue is for Nightmares” as in the girl splits the deck into 3 piles, then takes 7 cards from each…..can anyone tell me how to do it that way?

There is no right or wrong way of doing a Tarot reading, just guidelines. The number of Tarot spreads equals the number Tarot decks and users. The best way to perform a spread is to do what you feel is right and what works best for you. If you really want to do a three stack reading, a good guideline to start with would be, first stack = past, second stack = present, third stack = future. the seven cards drawn from each could be what is influencing the situation for each stack.
