In the world today, we find many people interested in Tarot and fortune telling. As many people who believe that Tarot cards do work, and provide meaningful information for there lives, there are also others who say that they don't work.
For centuries humans have sought to know what is going to happen. We know about yesterday, though maybe we have not gleaned all the necessary lessons, and tomorrow is like a dream, and it would be nice to know what is going to happen! Tarot makes this possible.
I guess it would be in order for me to tell you my position on the topic, so you understand my bias. I do believe that the Tarot works, so this article may be a bit biased on the working factor, however, I will try to provide the unbiased information, so you can make up your own mind on the subject.
For many centuries many kings and queens have used diviners to get answers to there problems. Certainly Tarot has been the most popular method of divination in most parts of the world. Though I would like to give you a look at differences between what could be termed real divination and fortunetelling. A diviner looks for insight, and gains information, whereas the term 'fortuneteller' though implies someone possibly being a gypsy, more often than not, is a glamorous way of making money at fairs, etc. Though some of them may actually be a diviner.
If you ask most diviners where they get the answers for there questions, you will find as much variety as the many religions of the Earth! Some people believe that the answers come from spiritual forces, god, a god, Gaia (Earth Spirit, Mother Earth), others also believe that it may come from the unconscious collective, and yet others believe it is there own creativity.
Scientists and Psychologists such as Carl Jung did much study with the tarot, and believed that the tarot cards were symbols which resonated with the archetypes of different people. Another noted person working with consciousness was Dr Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary believed that the cards represented our journey through life.
Whether you believe in tarot or not does not necessarily mean that you will get a good or bad reading, nor does it mean that it will effect your life or not. The cards have been used by many over the years in the belief that it does work. Many people who have had readings have found that the cards do indeed speak about some parts of there lives. For the skeptics however, often the view is that the cards speak to generally.
The tarot cards popularity has also found its way online, where now, you can find many sites online who will give you a free reading. Again skeptics are born, and now with people who do believe in tarot cards ability! The question is now whether online tarot card readings work as well or if at all compared with traditional in your hand tarot cards.
My take on this is that whether the tarot cards are physically present in front of you or on a virtual screen, the tarot is based on randomness and faith. The randomness that out of infinite possibilities the card dealing with your present life is the one to come up; and the faith that some power whatever we may call it is the power which delivers us the right card.
Tarot will always catch people's fascination. After all anything that can give us a glimpse of tomorrow, a better understanding about our life, and lessons from the past is giving us a map of the unknown.
