Upright

Definition of Upright

This is a term used when reading the tarot cards, or any other card oracle, such as angel cards. A card is said to be upright when the images on the card are faced right-side-up, just as you might think. When reading playing cards, or even some of the older style tarot cards, sometimes it is hard to tell from just the pips on the card whether it is upright or reversed. The upright meaning is the primary meaning of the card. A card that is upright is also said to be dignified.
