Is There Any Science Behind How The Tarot Works?

June 22nd, 2012

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.

History of the Tarot By D.J. Ownbey

July 30th, 2009

by DJ Ownbey

The first two decks that we know of appeared in 1441 and 1450, the later being the 78 card deck we are familiar with today (Vistonti-Sforsa of 1450).

The cards were originally known by the name Tarocchi (many allege they were named after a river and town where the first two decks originated (in Italy)—although this is speculation for the most part.
The French shortened tarocchi to “Tarot.” Most Europeans saw the cards as nothing more then a harmless game, much like we see our modern day playing cards. In fact, our modern day playing cards originate from the tarot (minor arcana-52 cards) The symbols change on our modern cards from cups to hearts, from swords to spades, from wands to clubs, and from pentacles to diamonds.

I believe this harmless game presentation was very wise idea—seeing how any type of Gnosticism (belief that we are divine and can connect directly with god—without a middle man) was punishable by torture and\ or death. Having ideas outside the scope of church approved ones, was a perilous journey in the middle ages.
Many people to this day, even professional readers, do not understand the “secret teaching to mastery” (enlightenment) the tarot comes to teach us— I plan to explore some of the hidden mysteries for the reader in future articles on this fascinating subject.

Tarot for Relationships

July 30th, 2009

Tarot can be a valuable tool for relationships.

Often in relationships, to be healthy we need a different perspective or point of view, we at times lack faith and understanding in our partnerships.  Sometimes our partner is hiding there feelings so well that it is hard to relate to or understand what they are wanting and needing. Sometimes we need a little encouragement, to refresh our lifestyle. Tarot can tell us whether its worth the wait and working on or if our efforts would be better focused on something else. Tarot helps you understand your partner, what they are needing or thinking, and what you need to do to ensure a healthy and happy relationship. You can find out things to help your relationship grow, to  help things find balance, and you can learn what your partner is needing or expecting of you, as well as what to expect of your partner. It is a  very valuable tool telling you how they will react to a choice your about to make, and what the consequences of that action will be. Ask the Tarot when you feel you need a true inner perspective, when you need to know but your partner are not able to ask or get answers from.

Using the tarot one can find out many things, Tarot can show you the true feelings of your partner, what they are thinking, wanting and expecting, and where the relationship is going. Using the tarot, one finds out if the effort that they put into the relationship will be worthwhile and rewarding. Tarot holds no secrets, and yet will  reveal any secret. Using the tarot you can plot the course of your relationship, find out when and if they will commit and what to look for to show it is coming. Tarot reveals there true feelings, things they are yet to accept and come to terms with. It is important to ask specific questions when using the tarot. Sometimes we let our fears get in the way of our relationships. We fear what the partner is doing, or if they are being honest. Tarot simplifies that. What are they thinking, wanting, needing? Are they honest? Are they cheating? Do they like me?  These are questions the tarot can answer easily, accurately, and quickly. When you need to know, tarot holds the answers.

Sometimes we feel lost, and our partner is unable to provide the answers we are needing. Tarot provides those answer, without having to cause stress in your relationship by having a discussion your partner may not be yet ready for.  Tarot plots the course of the relationship, giving you the hope you need to move forward. 

Tarot can help one build a healthier, happier relationship. By easing your fears and knowing the outcome of where things are going, you are able to devote your time to other aspects of the relationship besides stress or worry.  You can use the tarot to check your relationships, to see if they need a  slight tune up occasionally. By eliminating the stress in the relationship and providing the hope one needs or the support, or even letting know when its time to let go, one can build both a healthier life path, within and without relationships, whatever is needed.  Its nice knowing when its time to let go, or when you just need to hold on just a little bit longer. It is nice to have the support that the Tarot will offer. Tarot has helped  heal many relationships, and  it can help yours also, if you just ask the questions~

A tarot reading can be a valuable assets in making important life decisions. Whether you are wanting to know if they are the one, if this career path is the right one for you, or if you should make this next purchase the tarot can help you.

Tarot can do much more though, besides simply answering your questions. Often it catches and reveals important details that other styles of reading may miss. Tarot does have certain limitations though, such as telling locations, or monetary amounts. Even so it is a valuable tool to learn about your future.

A tarot reader will often not ask any questions. Remember a date of birth is not necessary for a tarot reading as they tap into the energy around you in your present situation, and not at birth. Often times a tarot reader asks your name merely as a formality.

When you seek a tarot reading, much as with any other style of reading, it is important to have a clear open mind. Be receptive to any and all information which is provided to you. Sometimes the reading will veer off to another topic than the one you are asking about but this is not a bad thing. It simply means that this particular topic is of extra importance. When the message comes through it will redirect back to the directed topic.

Tarot has been documented clear back to the 14th century, and has only strengthened and developed through the ages. It is a valuable tool for finding out about the future, a person, place or anything almost. Choose tarot for direct clear answers. You’ll be surprised when you do!

With a  clear mind and a  steady focus you would be amazed the doors of opportunity a  tarot reading will open up for you!
