Tarot Cards are popular divination devices at psychic fairs. A set of tarot cards consist of a minor arcane and the major arcane with twenty-two cards, a card numbered 0, and the Fool. The four suits are designated wands, cups, swords and pentacles, symbolizing four elements of fire, water, air, and earth. Some historians say this system of occultism came from Chaldea by way of Alexandria and was used worldwide by occultists to communicate. (The name tarot comes from taro-rota, meaning "the will of the law, and the law of the will.") First used by a Frenchman in the 18th century, the term tarot was preserved its Francophile pronunciation, hence the silent final "t."
The cards are said to be symbolic representation of reality. By reading them, one's unconscious powers are awakened. When this happens, the inner forces of fate can be controlled. The color, shape and symbolic forms on the cards are to be studied intuitively. Some tarot guides provide meditations while concentrating on the cards.
The tarot is one of the least precise forms of occult divination. In fact, there are no standardized pictures appearing on the cards. Some adherents make up their own-diagrammed figures and attach their own meanings to these designations. In addition, there are several methods of shuffling and laying the cards. Such arbitrariness ensures inaccuracy in determining crucial information. Consequently, tarot cards are only a psychic point of contact between the reader and the subject.
Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from [these things] that shall come upon thee. Isaiah 47:13
Only God knows your future!
