Are Tarot Cards Playthings Of The Devil?
Are or can they just be cards used to guide and bring insight into one’s life. I’ve always had an interest in the occult, it’s never left me, so now I’m debating on whether to indulge in this little interest of mine. I plan to use them somewhat as a form of meditation. And I always wanted to learn about them.
What do you think? Am I going down a slipper slide, that will eventually lead to more things?
Can there ever be a healthy interest in the supernatural?

Harmless fun, no more, no less.

Seeing as I am studying to read Tarot and I do not believe in the devil, then no….
But, eh, it is whatever you believe… I can’t and won’t try to change your mind.

They’re harmless. They aren’t magical. At most they’re a way to get you to look at a situation from a different perspective, or to let you listen to what your subconscious is telling you.
Answer by TheGodSplinter
I gave the Tarot up at 16 years of age. I am now 53.
I gave them up after using the I-Ching just a few times.
The Tarot cards are not the playthings of the Devil and, to be honest, aligning yourself with what you term, “the supernatural” is perfectly natural to do.
In fact, you should consider the supernatural to be the “extended natural” that you’ve just not yet explored, or not yet explored enough. It’s your birthright to seek knowledge along an Occult or Spiritual path of your choice, if that’s where you feel you want to go.
It’s in you and it’s all around you, so it pays to learn about it.
can you use a tarot book that describes cards different pictures than mine?
got a tarot deck that came with a book, but i don’t like the way it explains each cards. I got another tarot book to & I like that one but it shows illustrations to a different deck. They’re the same type of cards just different decks, can I use the book to my deck?

Write your own book and use that. It’s exactly the same as all the other books, which also were just made up by somebody sometime, you know.
Just remember it’s all balderdash and you’ll be just fine.
Answer by Dolfy
Yes, generally in tarot it is the numerical order and value that tells the most of the information.
Though the pictures help in determining other refined aspects of the card.
Provided the deck you own adheres in sequence to the most common and widely used deck (Rider-Waite) then any book should give you the information you need.
It is best though to use a deck that somewhat resembles the “originals”
(the actual originals are thought to have been created during the ancient Egyptian times, so we mean Rider-Waite deck when we refer to “originals”), but there are many variations that can be used.
The Crowley Thoth deck is one excellent alternative example.
Answer by Scarlet MacBlu
Use both. Actually, use neither when performing readings, but use both books (and any others you can get your hands on) when you study your cards. When you go through and study your cards, you’ll want to have all the resources you can get. Read each book, compile your notes about what the authors say the cards means along with your own impressions and then LOOK at the card and decide what you see in it… do the meanings you’ve written down work? If not, write down what DOES work. Use the picture as your guide.
When doing readings, don’t look at any books… the books too easily becoem crutches for when you get “stuck”… look at the picture and describe to yourself what you see and the impressions you get and see how these details might apply to the question at hand. The cards should speak for themselves, any guidebooks you have, whether they came with the deck or not, are only suggestions and study aides.
Best of luck!
Is there a Certain Zodiac sign That is better with Tarot Cards?
i Was wondering if there was a certain sign that naturally has More ability to read Tarot CArds . This is me :
Answer by Julia M
The cards have never failed me. Taurus Sun, Pisces Moon.
Answer by Russanya
No. Any sign can be gifted with the second sight, and all signs bring their own talent to a card reading. The personality of the card reader will always show through the cards, because the cards absorb his/her energy.
I am a Scorpio sun and I tend to be best at finding and answering questions that they didn’t know they had. My Leo friend that reads often is able to find solutions to problems that benefit the most amount of people. My Taurus friend is awesome at giving business advice based on her cards.
My best friend who has always been the best reader for me is a Gemini, and she is the best and helping me fix interpersonal relationships with advice from the cards. I owe her many of the personal connections that I have now.
Answer by Lillith
From the feedback that I get from my clients- I’m a pretty good intuitive reader.
Capricorn- Sun, Moon, Mercury
Virgo- Rising, Jupiter, Uranus, Pluto
Scorpio- Venus, Neptune
The signs that are connected to psychic, metaphysical and occult are
Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Aquarius & Pisces
The planets that are associated with the same are
Moon Uranus Neptune and Pluto
Sun in Aquarius is a good placement, it shows your innate interest in this subject manner.
Moon in Scorpio is another good placement, this will cause you to be quite sensitive and is an indicator of being empathic.
Empathics can enter into an empty room and get a physical feeling of fear or anger. They can tell when there has been an argument in the room. They are very good at knowing when some one is lying.
Rising in Pisces is also another good placement for being one with such abilities, for having compassion with people who seek assistance when they are troubled. You instinctively know how to comfort. This is also good for psychometrics which is another aspect of empathic ability. Psychometrics is where someone can touch something and get impressions of visions from the object.
The rest of your planetary placements are also favorable for having such an interest and ability in Tarot or anything metaphysical/psychic.
