What are Tarot Cards?
“The tarot ( /ˈtæroʊ/; first known as trionfi and later as tarocchi, tarock, and others) is a pack of playing cards (most commonly numbering 78), used from the mid-15th century in various parts of Europe to play a group of card games such as Italian tarocchini and French tarot. From the late 18th century until the present time the tarot has also found use by mystics and occultists in efforts at divination or as a map of mental and spiritual pathways.” – Wikipedia
Do I believe in them? Yeah, I do actually! I’m pretty open-minded in life (and afterlife), and the cards so far never steered me wrong! I love the deck I own, beautifully designed.
I remember a funny time when I brought the cards to highschool, we had this really insane teacher, who seemed to have bi polar, and she made life a living Hell for us (mostly girls, she flirted a lot with the guys), whenever we would ask the cards about her, we pulled out the Devil card, and whenever we just mentioned her, the Devil card appeared. This happened literally every single time we talked about her! We even tested it out to make sure it wasn’t a fluke; we shuffled the cards, split it into 3 stacks, and pulled a card out of one of the stacks – and yes, we pulled the Devil card.
Another time, is a few years ago when I asked where I’d meet the love of my life, and what type of person he’d be. The cards described that I’d meet him in a place of education, he’d be responsible, well with financial stuff, and that he’d be a business oriented guy, and that he’d be the love of my life, and that I’d be secure, and that there’ll be many obstacles and hardships but we’d end up overcoming them – basically, the cards spoke of a guy I’d never be interested in, and someone that I never saw myself come across, or hang out in the same social circles.
Well, damn, I met him 2 years after that. A business major – Accounting and Finance Major to be exact, he’s very responsible, and he’s the love of my life, and yes I’m feeling very secure, and yes there had been many struggles and obstacles that we have overcome.
So yeah, so far the tarot cards haven’t let me down, and these 2 experiences are just a few of many, they have even helped out friends of mine.
But hey, that’s just my opinion.
