    Tarot cards are just a set of ambiguous symbols that can be creatively interpreted to apply to a person's situation. There's nothing particularly mysterious about it, nor do they "tell the future".

    I use them. And no you can't tell the future from them.
    You can do divination with them tho

    Tarot cards work to get the money flow towards the "card-reader"

    Tarot cards are used to predict the future, but whether or not it predicts correctly depends on the card reader

    If the card reader has a direct line to God, it will work. BUT if the card-reader already has a direct line to God, why use Tarot cards in the first place
    (Maybe to create more trust in people; usually people relate better to something concrete than to some mysterious voice)

    If you don't have a line to God, it will not work to predict the future. Except an occasional 'hit'

    So, I think card-readers usually don't work in getting a precise prediction

    I have two decks. Rider-Waite and Gilded. Both work.

    And yep. The devil makes them work.

    They do work but it's not the devil making them work but Barnum phrases and cold reading. I like the Crowley Tarot. Very expressive paintings with strong symbolism and excellent colour selection.

    If you train enough, your unconscious mind can make them work.

    Like anything else, you train enough to let you unconscious mind take over.
    It is kind of interesting and a little scary to find your self giving a reading from a non-conscious source.

    Then people start confirming that unconscious narrative that comes out of you.

    I think the cards portray common situations we mostly all face in life. Job or love of fears etc...
    The situations the cards represent we all most likely have faced in life at sometime. It's not hard to find a connection between the cards and the average person's life.
    I suppose it helps to talk to a neutral party about the situations we face in life. They go away feeling more certain about things.

    I had a Tarot reading from a member of RF and some of what his cards predicted has already come to pass. So, yes, Tarot Cards work, and no, I don't believe it's demonic in nature because I don't attribute the reading's success to the Christian boogeyman, a.k.a. Satan.

    As a matter of fact, I was thinking of asking this member to do another reading for me. I've been exploring a bit of divination myself, and I think it's fascinating. I've also been considering buying a deck of Tarot Cards for myself since most of my readings came to pass.

    They work by allowing a competent user to tap into the threads of Fate being constantly weaved around us. And to get a glimpse at the pattern to help make or clear up decisions.

    Statements that are so vague that they fit almost every one (or are so positive that everyone wants them to fit).
    "In spiritual matters, the Fool means idea, thought, spirituality, that which endeavours to transcend earth.

    In material matters, it may, if badly dignified, mean folly, eccentricity, or even mania.

    But the essential of this card is that it represents an original, subtle, sudden impulse or impact, coming from a completely strange quarter.

    All such impulses are right, if rightly received; and the good or ill interpretation of the card depends entirely on the right attitude of the Querent." from https://crowley-thoth.com/symbolism/fool-00/

    Does that description fit you?

    It's used by some.

    But I certainly aim to be much more accurate and less... obtuse? I don't discount the spiritual realm being involved either.

    It's art, intuition, and science.

    It's not up to tarot cards or the devil but rather about the one exercising them and his experience with psychology and his ability to learn about you.

    There are so many Tarot card decks available that I don't know which one to choose. I ran my hand over a few to see if I could pick up a vibe from one of them, but I was picking up a vibe from all of them. I assumed that happened because of my personal connection with the spirit realm. To be honest, I'm not sure what to do next. If you have any advice for me, then please PM me and we can talk.
