The Jaw-Dropping Fact Concerning Tarot Cards

By Moritz M Gleitman on December 21, 2010

========== IT'S CARTOMANCY, I'M AFRAID ===========

A Tarot reading is Cartomancy. The process of divining (or prospecting) one's destiny or some other situation, by means of seemingly random selections and array of cards in a spread.

Do they work? Certain non-believers claim it's balderdash!. They claim it's completely fraudulent and cruelly preys upon the innocents, the susceptible and the gullible.

Now you would have to be younger than four not to have heard of the Tarot. In which case it is highly unlikely you could be reading this. (unless you're a child prodigy, in which case you'd probably already know the answer to this question)

So it must be that most would be familiar with the basic tenets of the Tarot. There is an ocean full of information out there and I won't bore you with the details here.

========== SO DOES IT SPIT STRAIGHT, MAN? ==========

You want your fortune told, right? You want your future predicted, right? You want a little more control of your life, right? Seems everyone agues excitedly as to exactly how the Tarot works, or if in fact it works at all.

Does the arrangement somehow stimulate hidden intuitive or psychic talents in those so gifted? Does the interrogation procedure itself stimulate invisible outside intelligences; those passed over, arch angels, over-souls, elementals, spirit guides who directly or indirectly intervene to shape outcomes in a spiritual manner? Or is this a universe of 'no accidents' where the purposeful process of querying creates a synchronous earth modality beyond the chaos theory?

Considered by some to be a gateway to the subconscious mind, the major arcana in particular, due somewhat to prototypical patterns, has been likened in essence to the psychology of Carl Jung's collective unconscious.

Sorry, but to fully comprehend the ultimate truth to the Tarot we'll need to delved into the Tarot's mysterious past.

========== A LITTLE HISTORY MUSIC, IF YOU PLEASE, MAESTRO ==========

Under hazy circumstances, a 4 suited playing card pack first appeared in Europe in the 1370's, probably in Italy or Spain. This had a striking likeness to the modern playing card pack in current use. Then, in Italy in the 1430's, a an additional suit of 21 illuminated cards called trionfi ('triumphs') plus an odd card called matto ('the fool') were added to this pack. No, 'the fool' was NOT the forerunner of the modern joker, which was created separately in the late 19th century, as a euchre game card, of a jack with no suit.

Like in modern Mardi Gras, the characterizations in the trionfi, most likely represented mascots in medieval re-enactments of triumphal Roman street parades. The reason for the trionfi was to function as a higher ranked suit, becoming 'trumps' or a suit of 'triumphs'. Played by 3 or 4 , on occasion 5 players, these 'tarot games' consisted of informal team-ups directed towards the dominant player in each deal.

So the upshot is; based upon the Venetian or the Piedmontese tarot, until about 1780 in France, tarot was a pleasant waste of time. It had not a cracker of spirituality. It didn't know a feather from a furlong.

========== NOPE, DON'T BELIEVE IT ==========

Here, I'll say it again - slower. Hardly 230 years ago, the tarot was played as a game, possibly by children, not dissimilar to say our Gin Rummy. It was never intended to be a instrument of prophecy, a seer. It is NOT a purpose-built tool!! It's a depraved game. Emphatically!

Scream till you're blue in the face about its epidemic popularity, the mountains of volumes of literature written on it, the testimonials to its effectiveness, however once compared to say Crystalomancy, the Runes, or the I-Ching, the Tarot's origins, genealogy and pedigree is in a state of rampant confusion.

Not a mere child of just 230, The I-Ching is a grand old mystic of some 6, 000 years, probably the first transcribed document in history, created wholly and solely for the purpose of functioning as an ORACLE. It is imbued with thousands, not merely a couple of hundred years of vibrational human consciousness. It is truly an institutionalized timeless artifact.

========== BUT STEADY ON, ISN'T THIS TO DO WITH THE WONDER OF TAROT?.==========

So . . .

The truth lies in what really is real.

We can look at this another way. It refers to the principle that we are all the masters of our own fate. We create our lives for ourselves according to what we predominantly desire or believe. As well, each of us is the center of our own universe. We are ego-centric.

So that when a card reader suggest to us a possible situation as depicted by the cards, our very powerful association 'reflex' kicks in full force, scans our life and makes every attempt to coordinate the broad-brush card situation with our 'real-life' situation. Therefore we uncover what appears to be a train of current happenings that seem to match. We, together with certain dominance we've given over to the reader, conclude a certain accuracy of the reading to depict a valid portrayal of our life circumstances.

The card reader will bring down his/her final judgment in our now current atmosphere of near-perfect trust. We then believe this to be a reality, in our now conditioned self.

========== LADIES & GENTLEMEN, I NOW GIVE YOU A S.F.P. ==========

We are the master of our own fate, remember what I said? Well what we now do is to take the powerful belief of the reading outcome and 'force' it to become a life reality.

In other words we actually create the reality as prophesied by the cards. Incredible, no? This is what is known as a guess what? A self-fulfilling prophesy. So is this fraud? No, it's just another example of the amazing power of the mind.
