Dear SavannahConjureBoy --
You say you are a good tarot reader, yet your query is a beginner's question, so, at the risk of inadvertently offending you, i am going to reply as if you were a beginner, in the hope that my answer will be of use to others who read this forum in years to come. No offense is intended, and i am not questioning your innate gifts or previous training.
I recommend two approaches here.
You may like the first approach, as it involves only a small expenditure of money and time.
You will NOT like the second approach. No one does, because it involves time and money.
1) To understand how meaningful associations have developed for the various cards over time, you will will need to undertake some study. "Intuitive" or idiosyncratic meanings for the cards prove unsatisfactory in the end, because clients who regularly purchase readings are well aware of the general meanings of the cards and will fault you for misinterpretations if you range too far afield from the normative meanings and symbols.
• If you do not already own it, buy a copy of "The Pictorial Key to the Tarot" by Arthur Edward Waite.
It is cheap, in print, and we stock it in our shop. It will guide you as no other cheap, short, expert book has ever done.
• Also pick up a copy of "Classic Tarot Spreads" by Sandor Konraad.
This book describes a number of layouts suitable to short or long readings, and layouts which will set your work apart from other readers if you work pychic fairs or in a metaphysical shop with other readers.
• If you intend to use your cards in spell-casting as well as for divination, you will also want a copy of the book "A Deck of Spells" by Professor Charles Porterfield.
There are 13 different spells made with tarot cards in the book, as well as help in adapting both tarot cards and Lenormand cards to the 100 or so old-fashioned and historical spells that use playing cards as part of their construction.

You can order right here in the Forum by clicking on the blue Add To Cart button.
We carry all of these books in the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. book department, and Lucky Mojo is the publisher of Professor Porterfield's works.
2) Pay or trade for and get 100 card readings over the course of the next 200 weeks (one every other week for about four years), or, if you can afford to do it, get the readings over the course of 100 weeks (one reading every week for about two years). These readings should be:
• An assortment of readings with various card decks, including tarot cards, playing cards, Lenormand cards, and oracle cards.
• An assortment of email readings, in-person readings, phone readings, skype readings, radio-show readings, and youtube readings.
• An assortment of free mini-readings, as offered on radio shows; some traded readings with other learners and students; short, cheap ten-minute readings; standard mid-ranged half-hour readings; and long, costly one-hour readings.
• An assortment of "general" readings, "life" readings, " "birthday special" or "year" readings, and specific question-answering readings.
• An assortment of layouts, including the three-card cut, three-card spread, Celtic cross, horseshoe, grand tableaux, tic-tac-toe, wheel of the year, and other forms.
You may return to a reader several times if you wish, or choose a new reader with each session.
The time taken to complete this program will range from two to four years, and the cost to you will range from $1,000.00 to $6,000.00 (you can reasonably expect to pay around $4,000.00) over those years, for an average of around $85.00 per month if you do the work in four years, or $170.00 per month if you do the work in two years and "graduate" more quickly. You will then know how to read any kind of card. You will have essentially graduated from a four-year training course in cartomancy.
You can be a professional reader while you are committed to this program. If you are not already reading cards for people, you can expect to start reading on a semi-professional or free / trade basis with friends at about the 25-reading mark and to take paying clients at about the 50-reading mark, thus using your income from readings to fund your "schooling."
I went through this training myself and was reading professionally around reading number 50. By reading number 100, i had seen a vast improvement in my understanding, not only of the cards and of divination, but also in how clients approach readers and why -- and what kind of a reader i personally wanted to be.
Finally, all people contemplating a career -- or already engaged in a career -- as professional fortune tellers should own and learn from the best book on the subject, "The Fortune Teller's Guide to Success" by Valentina Burton. She is a member of AIRR and is located in Dallas Texas, and she regularly attends (and reads at) the Hoodoo Heritage Festivals in Forestville, as well as at BATS, the Bay Area Tarot Symposium. The book is available through her, via Lulu, and we proudly carry it in our Lucky Mojo Curio Co. shop as well.
Now, on to your specific questions:
There is no specific tarot card for the evil eye, to my knowledge, but if the question is asked, there are a number of cards that indicate general curses or general envy and jealousy (which is the leading cause of the evil eye). The Devil is the foremost among the curse cards. The 7 of Wands indicates (among other things) that you may be facing an attack from jealous or competitive people "below" you. This is not an evil eye card in and of itself, but if it comes out in a spread on the question of the evil eye, it is co-diagnostic. The 2 of Swords and the 7 of Swords (in both of which there are blindfolded figures) can be co-diagnostic of evil eye or unclarity situations, depending on the other cards in the spread.
There is no specific tarot card for money crossings, to my knowledge, but if the question is asked, any of the bound or crossed cards, such as the 2 of Swords or 7 of Swords would, in conjunction with a negative coin card, such as the 6 of Coins or the 4 of Coins, be co-diagnostic of a money curse, money binding, or money block.
There is no specific tarot card for ancestor contact, to my knowledge, but if the question is asked, several of the trumps will indicate the type of ancestor being contacted (High Priestess, Empress, Emperor, Hierophant, etc.) and the 10 of Coins also carries a "generational" co-diagnosis.
Good luck to you.
