Complicated Tarot Question

Postby Aniu » Sun Aug 19, 2012 6:34 pm

Sorry if this question has already been asked. I'm really into Tarot readings and I now am quiet good at it. However I was wondering just how much you should trust them.
I guess I'll just cut to the chase, I do a lot of tarot card readings when I'm falling in love, and when my friends are mad at me. I'm at a stale mate in one relationship and I do a ton of readings to see if anything will change (and half of the reason I do so many is purely cuz I'm just that bored). I was wondering just how much I should shape my life around them. Like the cards told me I would see this guy in two weeks and my pendulum backed it up. Is that enough to say "Yes it'll definitely happen"? Also I do alot in case the first one I just read wrong or it looked too good to be true.

All in all, is there a point where you draw the line? Should you have utter faith in it or should you still prepare for the worst?

Maybe I'm just paranoid about the "but what are you going to do if the cards are wrong"...
Forever live in love and light!

To anwser this question I want to refference to a relative of mine.
He is a very talented medium and would channel through the oujia, all his anwsers were correct and he helped a lot of people find closure. One day he asked the oujia for the numbers to the lottery because he didn't see any harm in it. The numbers were wrong and he returned to the oujia, in turn it only replied "Ha Ha".

Point being, the cards, pendulum, oujia are all but tools, we may use them but we must not throw anything in the balance for them. No matter how often my readings turn out right I always go in with fresh eyes. It is more than fine to see it as a viewpoint from which we can make our own truth but it shouldn't be viewed as absolute truth.

I hope this helps in any way :D

That makes sense. I got addicted to is as well which is never a good thing. I'll make sure I keep this in mind.

My readings are accurate as well, how much you should trust them you ask? ALWAYS but only if you do a reading per week or maybe two readings per week, by doing readings each and everyday will just make it hard for the cards and then they won't say anything....so keep in mind, treat them like they are partners, not like a tool...

Spamming notwithstanding the Tarot or divination in general I'd say trust them.Through divination I've literately saved myself from destruction countless times.For example the notified me that an enemy was about to do great evil unto me.With dark magick no less.I was able to prevent her solely by virtue of having a head start.
We know that:
1:Nothing is impossible
2:Its worthwhile, trying the impossible
Therefore from (1),(2) we conclude that:
Its not worth it trying for anything :)

Divination gives you a window into a possible future. But it is important to remember that the future is not a fixed point in time, it can be changed and influenced. I use tarot readings to suggest what will be the outcome if I go along the way that I am going. If I get a bad or a negative future outcome from the cards then I take that as a sign that I need to make some changes in my life to avoid that future.

To take the example that you will see this man in two weeks. That is a possible outcome. It is highly likely that if you go out and go to the places where he often goes, you will see him, if you lie in bed for two weeks then it is likely you won't. Your cards are suggesting that if you do whatever you are doing now, you will see this man. Yes, you can trust that. But what you can't trust is that if you make a radical change in your behaviours now, that future will remain true for you because it won't.

I also think " a ton of readings" is a bit overkill.... I would personally recommend no more than one full reading a most (ideally one every 3 months) and then shorter readings weekly at most. Try to spend your time interpreting the meanings of your readings rather than repeating them to corroborate the advice the cards have given you. Good luck with the relationship. Bb x
