What are some important card readings to know?

This line probably best explains all of the card readings: "People see what they wish to see. And in most cases, what they are told that they see.”

So for example, if the Death card is revealed, it means an end to something in one's life.  The "reader," in whom the subject has placed his or her trust, can steer that interpretation in either a negative or positive way.
