How do you read tarot cards and where do you buy them?
Has anyone had any accurate encounters with them?
Answer by Sarah
I’ve had tarot readers who were able to predict the past accurately. AS for the present…. no… the predictions they gave me did not come true.

To try to discover the future through tarot cards, palm reading, ouija board or some other form of fortunetelling, or to try to control the future through black magic, witchcraft or sorcery violates the first commandment. Keep in mind that fortunetelling is inherently linked with the practices of the occult. Sacred Scriptue has many condemnations of these activities: In the Old Testament we find, “A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortune-teller shall be put to death by stoning: they have no one but themselves to blame for their death” (Leviticus 20:27), and “Let there not be found among you anyone who immolates his son or daughter in the fire, nor a fortuneteller, soothsayer, charmer, diviner, or caster of spells, nor one who consults ghosts and spirits or seeks oracles from the dead. Anyone who does such things is an abomination to the Lord…” (Deut 18:10-12).
The first commandment repeats the condemnation of divination: “All forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead, or other practices falsely supposed to ‘unveil’ the future. Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history, and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers. They contradict the honor, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone” (No. 2116). Any practice which utilizes occult powers is condemned as contrary to true religion and is generally considered a mortal sin. Any specific invocation of the devil would clearly be a mortal sin. (Please note that just readig a horoscope in the newspaper or the message inside the fortune cookie, and having a laugh is not a mortal sin; however, taking such a horoscope seriously or paying for some astrologer’s advice is.)
We believe, as St. John wrote, “God is love” (I John 4:16). God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him may not die but may have eternal life” (John 3:16). Jesus is the light of the world, shining through the darkness (John 1:4-5). He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). To invoke Satan or any other power, to enter the darkness (the occult) for any assistance, or to attempt to usurp powers which belong to God alone is a defiance of the authority of Almighty God. To commit such acts is to turn away from God and place our own souls in jeopardy.
Adhering to the revelation of Sacred Scripture, the Church has over the centuries formally condemned witches and witchcraft, and has judged fortunetelling, tarot card reading and the like as sinful. The Didache (The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles, c. 80) warned, “You shall not practice magic.”
And any prophecy comes true sometime; let’s face it, a broken watch is correct twice a day.

Answer by James B
You can buy a deck of tarot cards at any new-age or metaphysical store, or even at most large book retailers like Barnes and Noble.
As far as reading the cards goes, almost every tarot deck comes with an instructional booklet. There are two main parts to a reading:
1. The meaning of the cards themselves, which you will find in the instructions that come with the deck, or you can find the meanings easily online.
2. The spread, or the way in which the cards are placed. There are many different spreads that usie different numbers of cards, and each position of each spread has its own meaning that you must juxtapose with the meaning of the card in that position.
Learning to read the tarot effectively takes time. I myself have been reading tarot for about 10 years, and I am still learning new things every day. But with practice and patience it is an amazing tool for self discovery.
Do you believe that tarot cards interfere with natural energy?
Meaning that they attract negative energy into your life. Also what about using a pendulum to answer questions. Is this considered interfering?
Answer by akumaxkami
No, because each of these methods tap into the great Cosmic energy of all things and the energy within yourself. So it’s completely natural.
Answer by whydontyoutakeaseatoverthere
Yes I agree, completely natural. Like the huge dump I took this morning.
Answer by HappilyPagan
As someone else already said, they are simply a tool for you to use to focus the talent and energy that you already have. They are just as disruptive as using dining utensils to eat, or glasses to see if your own eyes don’t work properly.
Answer by Marquis de LaDeaux
No, these instruments merely give you a better idea of what you’re dealing with. It makes it easier to figure things out from your energies. They will not harm you.
Where can I buy tarot cards, In the Dallas/misquite area?
Ive always kinda wanted a deck. But about a week ago I went to a psychic and she told me I was an empath, or a sensitive. And two days ago I went to a different one And she said the same thing. She also said that she thinks that i might be a Seer, she told me to buy some tarot cards to start building my psychic abilitys. So I was wondering where I can buy some? No online stores please.
Answer by Sapphire
Any metaphysical store in your area.
Answer by Pazuzu
I’ve seen them in the major bookstores.
But…do you really believe that invisible supernatural forces exist? I mean, does the world operate as if these forces are at work? The answer is no.
If they did exist, don’t you think people would be talking about it everywhere?
I know I would. But up till now, no one has provided concrete proof of supernatural powers.
You can get the cards but you are wasting your time and money.
Instead, buy a book about why people believe weird things. There is one out there by that title.
Also, psychics are con artists. Stay away from them.
