Upright and Inverted Card Meanings
In general, the positions of Tarot cards either in the upright readable positions or the upside down ones can determine the cards’ meanings. In some cases, when the card tends to appear upside down or reversed, its significance may be the opposite of the upright position. Of course, there will be a lot of the exceptions once the meaning is not necessarily the opposite, yet simply the lesser degree of the upright meaning.
What should we do with the reversed cards in a Tarot layout?
Someone can ignore them totally, and then treat them as though they are the same as the upright cards while others always ensure that there will be the inverted cards in the deck before they carry out reading. Although the upright cards are apt to denote the positive interpretations, it does not mean that their reversed positions will own the completely bad significances.
It is often said that the inverted cards are just the energetic blockage of the upright cards, and someone does not hesitate claim that it is true.
Nevertheless, some cards may truly be more helpful and constructive in the inverted position than they are in the upright position. The Devil Reversed and the 5 of Pentacles Reversed can be the typical examples.
At times, Tarot cards in the reversed positions seem to nearly take on the meaning of their own, yet different from the Tarot cards in the upright position. In fact, it is not always merely the opposite meaning, sometimes, there may be much more to it.
