Understand the Reversed Tarot Card Meanings


Find out the best way to approach reversed cards, and the three most common methods, in Thirteen's Tarot Reversals.

"Reversals do not always mean that something horrible is going to happen or that the situation is awful and hopeless. A spread heavy on reversals may simply be a way for the cards to get a strong message across, or to inform the reader and querent that there is a pessimistic, negative or blocked outlook to the problem. In short, that a change of attitude, beliefs, ways of tackling the problem can restore the energy and get things moving again."
