Are ‘reversed’ meanings necessary when giving a tarot reading?
I recently purhcased ‘Easy Tarot’, which includes a deck of Tarot cards and a book that explains how to use them. I didn’t feel that the original Rider Waite deck fit me, so I decided upon this one. However, the book doesn’t include reversed meanings, as the author didn’t use them herself. Would it be wrong to ignore the reversed meanings, or should I look them up online and write them in the margins of the book?

Some readers use reversed meanings: others don’t. I personally do because I find the interpretation is more personalized to the questioner rather than using a generic meaning. I don’t use the Rider Waite either even though it is the most used and one of the oldest decks out there. There are lots of different decks and the one that I use seemed to “just call out to me” if that makes any sense?
Here is a good book that explains reversals: “The Complete Book Of Tarot Reversals” (by Mary K. Greer).

It means you are hexed.
Fortunately this hex can be easily blessed by pressing the Caps Lock button on your keyboard.

Tarot cards are of the occult! Only Atheists use tarot cards! If you use then, you’re giving your soul to SATAN!
Turn to CHRIST! He’ll save you!!!

It means chaos. Fortunately, there is so much chaos in this reading that it is no longer chaotic and a pattern emerges.
It speaks of love won and then lost, causing you to grow spiritually. But it is not enough. You seek love again, though you know through your spiritual growth that you cannot get back the past. Time was taken from you like a thief in the night. And so, you shall grow old, alone, and dream of a venture to heaven. Someone who is your good friend will officiate that they know what is on the other side. Finally, you get to find out if your friend was correct. For if your friend was in error, you will never know. But you won’t care one bit. Why not? Because you’ll be dead. Duh.

start with this
since youre starting out (i presume), i suggest you just do them all upright. But if you do wish to do reversals just think of the opposite of what they upright means. honestly it would be best if you read detailed descriptions of every card, that way you can gain deeper insight on what the card may be saying. It will take you a few months to really get the feel for accurate readings. good luck
