Do Tarot Cards Really Work?

Do Tarot cards really work to tell ones future? What if you had 3 consecutive Tarot card readings? Would they all tell the same message? Have you ever had a Tarot card reading that turned out to be accurate?

  1. Hi CareTaker,

    Yes, yes and yes. I used to read Tarot. I even taught other people how to do it. I love the cards. Their history dates back before Egypt and their symbology covers all societies.

    There are 78 cards in a normal deck. Each card has specific meanings, and when you lay three cards in a spread, the meanings all combine, quite often to give you a clear picture of the situation you are asking about. And a person can go to three different readers, and if the issue is important enough, they’ll get the same answer .. not necessarily from the same cards .. but one or two might repeat with each reader … the startled looks on their faces can be fun. :-)

    They are not a tool of the devil. They are something that you ‘learn’ how to read and interpret .. or you remember from other lives, as my daughter does .. now that’s weird. LOL

    Love & Peace,

    Provided the reader’s are genuine (assuming you mean readings by 3 different readers) then yes, even 3 consectutive tarot readings will come out with the same meaning, even if the cards themselves aren’t exactly the same.

    Its about interpreting the overall meaning of the cards which surround each other, and not each individual card meaning in its own right.

    i think Ama probably explained it better ……….

  3. “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a cunsulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD…” (Deuteronomy 18: 10-12)

    According to the King James Bible, God says that it is wrong. I really don’t believe a piece of paper can divine the future. Not by itself anyway. I believe the devil and his demons, can influence the cards. As for them working, I thought it was just randomness, and I tried it just to prove it. I was surprised, when I got the “King” card, and that it told me that I was destined for Spiritual perfection or something like that. I know the Bible says that Christians are predestined to be conformed into the image of God’s Son. That’s what I was thinking at the time.

    If you really want to see the most accurate means of predicting the future, read the Bible.

    Dr. Peter Stoner, in the book Science Speaks, calculated the probability of one individual who could precisely fulfill just eight ( there are *332*) of the prophecies relating to Christ. He computed the odds at 1 in 10 (17th power), the same as 1 followed by 17 zeros. This is the equivalent of covering the entire state of Texas 2 feet deep in silver dollars, specially marking one of them, and instructing a blindfolded man to pick the right silver dollar on the first try.

    1. The Messiah will be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2).
    The average population of Bethlehem from the time of Micah to the present (1958) divided by the average population of the earth during the same period = 7,150/2,000,000,000 or 2.8×105.

    2. A messenger will prepare the way for the Messiah (Malachi 3:1).
    One man in how many, the world over, has had a forerunner (in this case, John the Baptist) to prepare his way?
    Estimate: 1 in 1,000 or 1×103.

    3. The Messiah will enter Jerusalem as a king riding on a donkey (Zechariah 9:9).
    One man in how many, who has entered Jerusalem as a ruler, has entered riding on a donkey?
    Estimate: 1 in 100 or 1×102.

    4. The Messiah will be betrayed by a friend and suffer wounds in His hands (Zechariah 13:6).
    One man in how many, the world over, has been betrayed by a friend, resulting in wounds in his hands?
    Estimate: 1 in 1,000 or 1×103.

    5. The Messiah will be betrayed for 30 pieces of silver (Zechariah 11:12).
    Of the people who have been betrayed, one in how many has been betrayed for exactly 30 pieces of silver?
    Estimate: 1 in 1,000 or 1×103.

    6. The betrayal money will be used to purchase a potter’s field (Zechariah 11:13).
    One man in how many, after receiving a bribe for the betrayal of a friend, has returned the money, had it refused, and then experienced it being used to buy a potter’s field?
    Estimate: 1 in 100,000 or 1×105.

    7. The Messiah will remain silent while He is afflicted (Isaiah 53:7).
    One man in how many, when he is oppressed and afflicted, though innocent, will make no defense of himself?
    Estimate: 1 in 1,000 or 1×103.

    8. The Messiah will die by having His hands and feet pierced (Psalm 22:16).
    One man in how many, since the time of David, has been crucified?
    Estimate: 1 in 10,000 or 1×104.

    Multiplying all these probabilities together produces a number (rounded off) of 1×1028. Dividing this number by an estimate of the number of people who have lived since the time of these prophecies (88 billion) produces a probability of all 8 prophecies being fulfilled accidently in the life of one person. That probability is 1in 10^17 or 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000. That’s one in one hundred quadrillion!

    Daniel and Ezekiel, are some of the most amazing books. They predicted all of the world governmets, before they happened. Also, it has a 100% track record. If you don’t believe me look it up.

  4. Hi MyName,

    Let me be a pain in the butt for the sake of accuracy …

    According to every translation of the Bible I own, and have 13 different ones, including 4 copies of the King James, which is not an accurate translation .. (and only one copy is including in the 13) no mention is made of ‘tarot cards’ themselves, only people who practise divination and fortune telling. It’s not the piece of paper that divines the future, its the person interpreting it, so you are right. Funny how very accurate they can be, even for people who think they have no psychic abilities, but know the meanings of the tarots very well.

    Do you remember which ‘king’ it was?

    One small problem with what you quoted .. Zechariah was written before Jesus was born, and was taught to him in the schools … so either he, or the people who wrote his story afterwards, would have used all of his prophecies to create their Messiah. I would love it all to have been true, but we have NO proof. We only have belief. But then I believe in demons (as it seems you do), fairies (met them too) and not going to hell when I die, tarot reading or not.

    Technically, mathematically, you can prove lots of things. I personally love Gematria .. that tells us lots of other interesting things from the Old Testament too. But that could be seen as divining I suppose.

    I love the Prophets in the bible too. Daniel is interesting. I was taught that a lot of Revelations was based on him .. or I think I was?? Hmm… but then, I was also taught that Revelations was one man’s rant at Nero for persecuting the Christians .. and 666 is Nero’s gematria number, and the devil was actually 616.

    Twist and turns and tumbles about. What we think we ‘know’ all comes down to what we choose to believe.

    If what you believe makes you a good, kind, strong, loving, compassion and God loving, not God fearing, person .. believe what you will. Or as the Wiccans said first, before they were called Wiccans .. ‘if it harm no one, do what you will’…

    But please .. Love one another,
    Love & Peace,

  5. i wonder why people often leave messages about the content in the bible and refer to it in long explanation instead of just explain it in simple way like Ama did. I would like to know more about tarot card. if there’s anyone else can tell us more about TAROR CARDS? i once read about how to use tarots cards. it’s really interesting.

  6. Hi Anonymous,

    What do you want to know about the tarots? There’s plenty of information on the internet, if you want to do some research.

    Love & Peace,

  7. There are a lot of ways of divination. Tarot cards are really an artform of reading, there are a lot of small meanings to each card that unless you have an idea of what you are reading you can actually make mistakes, most who read them much and become pretty attuned and divining their appropriate meanings.

    Palm reading is another one, a bit more vague and all encompassing.

  8. I firmly believe that tarot cards are a way for The Universe or Divine to communicate with us. They may not always tell the story you want to hear, but they do tell the story you NEED to hear.
