Your Chosen Card – Ace of Coins Reversed Golden Deck
When reversed, the Ace of Disks (golden coins) suggests that something may have gone awry in your quest for material well-being. Perhaps you are missing a significant opportunity to improve financial security, or maybe your attitude toward wealth and prosperity needs adjusting. In the myth of Knight Midas, his unbridled greed for the acquisition of material goods leaves him devoid of human contact. Now may be a good time to ponder Buddhas teachings about nonattachment. Interestingly, the lilies on this card in the Llewellyn Classic Tarot resemble the lotus, a Buddhist symbol of nonattachment; the lotus has the ability to rise above the mire of the swamp and produce an object of beauty.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Like medicine, tarot is an art. To master any of the arts, the student must learn the basic science and essential skills of the field and put them into practice. Essentially, the tarot cards present a series of images the reader interprets to tell a story. A basic assumption is that the stories we tell ourselves shape our self-image and influence how we conduct out lives. By giving voice to the images on the cards, the tarot reader offers to the querent a narrative to ponder. The importance of giving verbal expression to the sequence of tarot images can be seen in the ideas of the noted linguist Saussure regarding the role of words in everyday life:
Complete Book of Tarot: There is a correct and established way to read the cards, and you must follow these rules if you wish to make an accurate interpretation, but let your intuition be your guide.
Complete Book of Tarot: Do this exercise with each card for each position of a tarot layout or spread. Common spread positions include past, present, future, obstacles, assistance, advice, pros, cons, hidden issues, ones environment, hope and fears, likely outcome, and so on. A detailed example of this exercise can be found in the book Tarot Decoder by Kathleen McCormack, in which the author gives her impressions of the meaning of each card in each of the ten positions of the Celtic Cross spread.

Tarot Triumphs: To sum up, first attempts at Tarot reading are often best kept as light, playful, and varied. Take opportunities that come your way, give it your best shot, and don’t worry too much if you can’t always fathom whether the reading is a ‘success.’ Sometimes we may miss the mark. Sometimes the person asking the question blocks the reading with resistance or an adverse emotional attitude. But sometimes, too, the reading may be more relevant than is obvious at the time. The querent might ask you about one matter, but you could feel the need to respond with something different. Later, the querent may say, ‘You know, what you said turned out to be right on the mark. I didn’t realize it at the time.’ With Tarot divination, we need to go with what the cards tells us.
