I've always wondered about tarot and whether it is a legit. tool for devinating the future.

I randomly watched a few tarot readings for my astrological sign for Oct. and Nov. on YouTube last weekend, and I was stunned about how many said the same thing concerning a certain event in my life. And these were just general public readings too, not readings specifically for me.

Time will tell if the predictions actually come to pass in the next couple of months. But I really began to see a definite trend of the videos sampled, of the same predictions happening in the same time frame. There were also some readings that didn't resonate with me, but most did and they were pretty specific too on the events and conditions surrounding them.

How can several random people all over the world do readings about the same topic, be pulling roughly the same cards, and come to the same conclusions?! I would have thought there would be way more deviation than this, since all they're doing is pulling random cards and interpreting their meaning. But wow, they mostly aligned on this topic.

This is not at all like horoscopes that usually give drastically different predictions. These tarot reading were all very similar, even when different cards were drawn by the reader. How do certain cards "present" themselves to be pulled or jump out of the deck?

So, tarot.... What's the deal?

I still think it is suggestive, and that we can make what we want out of it ("A great opportunity awaits, you know the time is near!" ...........)

Well, the decks are cool anyway and fun to shuffle! Each deck's card illustrations are a unique work of art in just about every genre you can imagine.


But I'm trying to figure out how/why it works.

okay, i'm not the only one noticing this phenomenon this month with tarot readings. Here are a couple of comments from a youtube video I just saw:

"Did anyone notice that almost every Pisces reading for October 2018 is almost the same. Someone from the past and someone from the future....choices to come and to make...actually kinda curious how this will end up this month."

and

"Yup..every reading ex returning..."


Really, most of them are saying the exact same thing, down to the sign of the returning ex, circumstances from the past that caused the breakup, and what the outcome will be. Seriously, that's weird!

I watched some other signs' readings and they had nothing to do with this topic. So it's not just some general thing they're predicting for everyone.

It's ambiguous enough to allow the receiver to find correlation where it may or may not hold true.

I've had 'readings' done that weeks later I was still waiting on that windfall of fortune or the challenge of a new job. Neither happened.

Did have a palm reading done where the 'divine' reader ...gave a look of horror and ended the reading abruptly. To this day I try to understand what was soooo horrific in my life that she couldn't complete the reading. I didn't mass shoot..or create a crime ...or even go into politics ...so to this day I think at least with tarot ..I can pretend that good things can happen...

Uh yeah, I ain't holding my breath for that ex to return. And I wouldn't be too happy if he did!

I am reminded of Whoopi Goldberg with that one LOL


I think it must have added to the Entertainment aspect of your reading.


I used to really think maybe calling a California Psychic (Or Ms. Cleo) would tell me something amazing.. What to do, to really make it and not have to worry about finance in life. It is when I saw every single one say "For Entertainment Purposes Only" that I began to really figure out.. Acting!

Oh, Indeed!


I think there is some kind of way they pick out responses that mesh with whatever they perceive you want to hear, based on your mannerism etc (same way cops figure out a "baseline" then try to make you nervous enough to answer their questions. You could just have ADHD, like I do.)


I would be one of those that really isn't into it, and I could act along, while I struggle to watch them make s*** up, trying not to chuckle about that they say the "universe" says about me....

ok. for what its worth, here is my observation in the last week. There really is NO reason that tarot should be able to predict anything or offer guidance in and of itself. By a strange series of events, and believe me - very strange that I won't go into here. This last week was an abundance of guidance from guides, angels, God, universe, whatever you want to call it on a particularly troubling circumstance coming into my life. Then BAM! Tons of Youtube tarot readiog videos reinforcing that guidance.

I am beginning to think that Tarot is just another communication venue that guides can use to provide council to you. That's what I have decided Tarot is. Just one of MANY ways spirit can use to communicate to you. I NEVER previously watched any tarot readings from anywhere, I now I can't remember the bread crumb trail that led me to these videos. But it was in blatant agreement of all the other many signs I have received in the past week in other ways. Dreams. Visions. Signs. and then this - tarot youtube readings. I'm paying attention because its very clear to me that my guides are trying every means available to them to warn me of the coming events, and it makes complete sense to me. It could just as well been a horoscope. Or a friend. Whatever.

So that what I think Tarot is. Just a means of communication from Spirit. and Boy, do I get it now!!

You really want to know the truth on Tarot. Google James Randi. He will tell you all you want to know about it.
