Answer by freddy
The tarot has no power.It is the reader and how they interpret them.The tarot is a visual point for the reader to see So it is the reader that has the gift and the tarot is the tool
Answer by baronvonstrudel
It’s not really power… it’s more like an alternate way of looking at your situation.
It’s sort of like having an English teacher standing next to you and when you’re trying to figure out some intricate symbolism, they give you a little suggestion and suddenly you’re nudged into the right direction. Except the the symbolism is a complication in your own life, and the teacher is the tarot deck. Weird analogy, but that’s the most apt explanation I can find.
Are gilded tarot cards and Rider-Waite Tarot cards inter-changeable?
I recently got into doing tarot cards and learned on a gilded deck and i was wandering if I can change over to a rider waite deck and the cards have the same meaning. Also do they look the similar and have what suit and what the card is like the gilded deck does or no?
Answer by bongernet
Yes, they are both 100% bullshit and therefore may be used interchangeably.
Answer by Jσαииα єνє JPA
Most decks tend to look fairly similar and have the same or similar meanings e.g. they will have a suit of cups and it will still have the same meaning. The Rider-Waite is the most popular deck and the one most people begin with, although as I’m sure you’re aware there are hundreds of different decks available today. I’m sure it will be easy enough to change, although it will take a little while to get used to a new deck.

OW can you improve your life and find success in the pursuit of love and money? Many people look to astrology for the answer. Every day millions consult newspaper horoscopes in the hope of improving their prospects. Even world leaders have been known to guide their decisions by the stars.
Is astrology trustworthy? How do astrologers make their predictions? Should Christians allow celestial bodies to determine how they live?
What Is Astrology?According to The World Book Encyclopedia, astrology “is based on the belief that the heavenly bodies form patterns that can reveal a person’s character or future.” Astrologers claim that the precise positions of the planets and the signs of the zodiac at the time of a person’s birth can influence his life course.* The position of these heavenly bodies at any given moment is called a horoscope.
Belief in astrology is ancient. Some four thousand years ago, the Babylonians began to predict the future according to the positions of the sun, the moon, and the five most visible planets. They claimed that these heavenly bodies exerted certain forces that affected human behavior. Later they incorporated the signs of the zodiac into their predictions.
A Long History of FailureThe Bible highlights the connection between Babylon and astrology, and several times it makes reference to Babylonian astrologers. (Daniel 4:7; 5:7, 11) In the days of the prophet Daniel, astrology was so widespread in Chaldea (Babylonia) that using the term “Chaldeans” was practically the same as referring to astrologers.
Daniel witnessed not only the influence of astrology on Babylon but also the failure of its astrologers to predict the fall of the city. (Daniel 2:27) Note what the prophet Isaiah had accurately foretold two centuries earlier. “Let your astrologers come forward and save you—those people who study the stars, who map out the zones of the heavens and tell you from month to month what is going to happen to you,” Isaiah wrote scornfully. “They will not even be able to save themselves.”—Isaiah 47:13, 14, Today’s English Version.
Apparently, the Babylonian astrologers could not foretell their city’s downfall even a few hours in advance. And when God’s own adverse judgment appeared on the wall of King Belshazzar’s palace, the astrologers proved incapable of interpreting the cryptic writing.—Daniel 5:7, 8.
Today astrologers have not proved any more effective in predicting significant events. After examining more than 3,000 specific astrological predictions, scientific investigators R. Culver and Philip Ianna came to the conclusion that only 10 percent were accurate. Any well-informed analyst could do better than that.
In Conflict With Bible TeachingsThe Hebrew prophets, however, did not reject astrology merely because of its manifest failure to predict the future accurately. The Law that God gave to Moses specifically warned the Israelites against looking for omens. “There should not be found in you . . . anyone who employs divination . . . or anyone who looks for omens,” the Law stated. “Everybody doing these things is something detestable to Jehovah.”—Deuteronomy 18:10, 12.
Although astrology is not mentioned by name in that scripture, the prohibition evidently included the practice. The Encyclopædia Britannica notes that astrology is a “type of divination that consists in forecasting earthly and human events by means of observing and interpreting the fixed stars, the Sun, the Moon, and the planets.” All forms of divination—whether based on the stars or other objects—violate God’s guidelines. Why? There is good reason.
Rather than attribute our successes or failures to the stars, the Bible clearly states that “whatever a man is sowing, this he will also reap.” (Galatians 6:7) God holds each of us responsible for our actions, since we are free moral agents. (Deuteronomy 30:19, 20; Romans 14:12) True, we may suffer an accident or an illness because of events beyond our control. But such calamities, the Scriptures explain, are due to “time and unforeseen occurrence,” not our horoscope.—Ecclesiastes 9:11.
With regard to human relationships, the Bible urges us to clothe ourselves with such qualities as compassion, kindness, lowliness of mind, mildness, long-suffering, and love. (Colossians 3:12-14) These qualities are the key to forging lasting friendships and strengthening marriages. “Astrological affinity” is not a reliable guide for choosing a marriage mate. Psychologist Bernard Silverman analyzed the birth horoscopes of some 3,500 couples, 17 percent of whom had subsequently become divorced. He did not find a lower divorce rate among those who had married a partner who was ‘astrologically compatible.’
Clearly, astrology is both unreliable and misleading. It could cause us to blame the stars rather than ourselves when we make mistakes. Above all, it is clearly condemned in God’s Word.
