Is the use of tarot cards to help you better analyze a problem against God?
My friend uses tarot cards to help her look better at a problem or issue to help her see options and find a resolution. She doesnt use them to read the future, nor does she believe in contacting spirits or anything like that. She says it helps her, but I would like to know if this is against god like using tarot for divination.

yep its one of the many tools of the devil to quote Kathy Bates in the water boy, yes it leads to possession and mental illness
Answer by ???
Yes, partaking in such activities can open the door to demonic contact and possibly possession. Occult practices (tarot cards, palm readings, horoscopes, etc.) are gateways to imminent spiritual danger.

No doubt a big no-no. Why don’t you just read, and study The Bible? All the answers are answered in your “human” owners manual.

Christianity would say it is. Personally, I don’t see how something that you use for focus your thoughts and see a situation more clearly is against God.
What would be the best set of Tarot Cards?
I know basically nothing about tarot cards, so if someone could clarify the fact that some tarot cards seemed to be named different types of sets. For example: Egyptian, White, Goddess, Gypsy Witch, etc, etc.
So what’s the deal? And which set do you prefer?
Answer by Aragon
The tarot has been around for a long time, at least since the Middle Ages, so there are a lot of different decks. If you are new to the Tarot, you might want to start with a classic deck, such as the Rider-Waite deck. Buy yourself a good book, and learn the basics. I recommend Joan Bunning’s website, www.learntarot.com.
After you know the basics, many tarot decks would be suitable. The key is to pick a deck that you feel connected to. That means enjoying the art of that particular deck.
I hope this is helpful.

Try checking out the website below. It lists hundreds of tarot decks, information about the making of the deck, historical associations, etc. My first deck was the Medieval Scapini. I really liked it, because the book it came with gave several meanings for each card and my readings were quite accurate! I gave it away a few years ago when I felt like I was using them too much. Then recently I decided to purchase a new deck. The website below helped me to choose, and I chose the Touchstone Tarot by Kat Black. It is beautiful. I haven’t used it much, but the first reading I did for myself seemed accurate and helpful.
There are many different themes for tarot deck artwork, influenced by different cultures. You can browse through a bunch that call to you and narrow it down to the one you like best. I got this book called “The Tarot: History, Symbolism and Divination” by Robert M. Place (used copy on amazon.com). I agree with the first answer that the Rider-Waite deck is often recommended for a first deck. Try checking out a few books from your library to learn the meanings of the cards and various spreads.
Hope this helps. 🙂
