Is There Any Science Behind How The Tarot Works?
by DJ Ownbey
Does one have to know the scientific mechanics of how your car starts when you turn the key? Similar with Tarot readings; I believe science is catching up now more then ever to metaphysics. Quantum Physics and all the various experiments that are now being conducted at all the various universities around the world are revealing conclusive evidence that these things are real. Unfortunately, science has along way to go still.
Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung believed they worked through a process he termed as synchronicity. The theory of synchronicity can be summed up as co-incidence, meaning events that come together out side the realm of “chance.” These experiments were conducted at C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich.
I am also aware of Art Rosengarten that conducted allot of experiments with the tarot and he has authored several books on the subject.
The best approach to spirituality and getting a tarot reading is, “we become as little children,” as Jesus said. We forget all that we think we know all preconceived ideas and labels. We come with an open mind and heart. As the Buddhist term it the empty rice bowl and we allow spirit to guide us. Yogis call this state thoughtless awareness.
Understand that a real tarot reader does not need to know “anything” about your situation. As a matter of fact the less we know the better. Information can only biased one. Often times in the course of a reading we will ask questions to piece the puzzle together only. Provide no unsolicited information initially, as then we are looking for this or that—and we may miss something much more important that you need to know. I believe readings should always be approached in a very clinical way—so you can obtain the best results.
So when getting a tarot reading, it is a good idea to just surrender all your preconceived ideas about the situation you are coming about—as often your strong ideas about a subject can actually block the reader from seeing the truth. Also, understand that you can not judge predictions right or wrong in the present. Things you believe from your present knowledge are ridiculous is often exactly what will happen. Just keep an open mind to what the reader has to tell you—and keep a perfect state of objectivity. Being almost the detached observer is where the best tarot readings come from I have found.
If recommendations are made to you by the advisor follow them—religiously. If you go to a doctor and you don’t take the medication are you going to be helped? Keep in mind the definition of insanity is to do the same thing and expect different results—yet people continue doing this all over the world.
Allowing spirit to lead the way—always produces the perfect results- I have found.

How To Best Prepare for a Psychic Reading: Part 1
by Tarot by Justin
Although psychic readings generally do not require preparation on the part of the client there are still certain things that you can do both before and during the reading which will help you to get the most out of your time with your psychic advisor. This article will provide you with some helpful suggestions and tips so that you can derive the most benefit from your reading.
Here are the tips:
1) Relax. Yes, it is normal to be a little nervous, especially if you have never had a psychic reading before. Nerves are normal whenever we do anything for the first time. Just think about the first time you rode a bicycle or even your first date! Of course as we gain experience in anything our anxiety begins to diminish so bear this in mind and take the reading in your stride.
It’s important to remember too that psychic abilities are normal and we all possess them to a degree. Like all those times you just knew without any logical explanation that something was going to happen and indeed it did! Or all those moments when you thought about someone who you hadn’t seen in a long time and you happened to bump in to them or hear from them that same day. We all have these moments and although many people like to brush these aside with the word “coincidence”, the truth is that there are no coincidences. We all have a psychic sense, it’s a normal part of our makeup so don’t be afraid of this.
On this same topic keep in mind too that psychics themselves are regular people just like you. This should also help diminish some of your unsettled nerves. In any case, no doubt beneath your nervousness exists a certain curiosity about life and a desire to know things on a deeper level. After all, without that curiosity and desire you would not be seeking a reading right? So try if you can to connect more with this desire to know and let that guide you. That in itself will help put you in touch with the voice of your own intuition. Remind yourself once again that psychic abilities are normal and when its time for your reading take a deep breath and relax. When you have the pleasure of working with a gifted psychic this deep relaxation will make a world of difference.
2) Prepare Focused Questions. This is just as important as being relaxed. As we just discussed in the previous tip, since you have decided to have a psychic reading there are no doubt certain areas of your life which you would like to seek deeper insights and guidance about. In order to express this you will need to formulate some specific questions. It’s highly advisable to take some time before-hand to think deeply about the questions you wish to ask.
During the reading itself though, try to be as specific as possible when asking your questions? This is because if your questions are too vague and general then you are likely to receive answers of this nature too. So for instance, rather than saying ”Please tell me about Chris” a better way would be to ask “How does Chris feel about me and is he ever going to ask me out on a date?”. Or instead of asking the question, “Where is my career headed?” try asking, “Am I likely to get the Barnes account come September and will I get that promotion?”. I’m sure you get the idea. Specific questions of this nature will lead to more focused answers so be sure to think of some.
Tarot takes the guesswork out of relationships~
The Tarot deck is like a book of story pictures that tell a story by the way they are interpreted, and this interpretation is done by the reader. A fascinating story can be told by reading the cards, either in a formal spread or in a more informal manner such as just drawing a card and interpreting its meaning.
The Tarot goes hand and hand with all aspects of life, but maybe none more than when it comes to relationships. Relationship questions are probably the most asked questions of the Tarot than any other. Whether it is a inquiry about what that hopeful significant other may be thinking about you, or something as ordinary as what are a certain associate’s motives are, the Tarot can give valuable insight into these matters and many others as well.
Whether it is a love story or a tale of mistakes and misdeeds that can hopefully be avoided with the guidance of the cards, the Tarot can tell you the things you want to know about your relationships, not only with that special person, but also about what your friends and family may have intended for you. With the information that the cards give you can choose which path seems the best for your current situation.
Remember also that the deck may also tell you something that you may not want to hear, but you may need to know these things for your own safety or so that you may make an informed choice so that you can learn and grow as a human being. An experienced and ethical reader will tell you the good and the bad so that you may have a complete understanding of your unique situation. In this way you can make an informed decision about your relationships without worrying about “what if’s?” and “what might be?”.
The cards are a valuable ally in the game of life. Do not be fooled again by someone that has less than honorable intentions for you. The Cards will give valuable insights in matters of the heart, not only into what someone else is planning, thinking or feeling, but also about what the outcome of a particular decision will be. Look at all aspects of a relationship, not just what the other person has in mind but also what will be the outcome of dating this person, or that other person you are interested in. in this way you can make a better choice in your relationships.
