Question : Do you believe there is anything in tarot card readings?
Some one gave me a free tarot card reading the other day, it was quite interesting and seemed to account for things that are happening in my life and things that i am trying to make happen in the future. Im quite a skeptical about such things but it did make me raise an eyebrow haha.
Should I believe in this stuff?

Waste of good poker time, but at least you lost less money.
Answer by Mordred
Just cold reading and the barnum effect.
On the other hand a personal reading you do for yourself, while useless in terms of divination, may give personal insight in to your own psychology. It is a symbolically rich and, as Jung pointed out, examining symbols in the context of our own lives can have great benefits.
Answer by M to the R Mighty RA
Thats ridiculous they have a bunch of stock generalisations for each card and deliver them to you in that dreary QVC shopping channel way, which you don’t really listen to but rather enjoy.
All the generalisations are really complmentary as well, even death and the devil have nice meanings.
Answer by StupidLamb
yes and no i know how weird this sounds but i believe that if you think somethings going to work like say you find a penny heads up on the ground and you believe its good luck for the rest of that entire day you will only look at the good things that have happened

In the end, you decide what you choose to believe in. Beliefs are based on personal truths. Just see where it takes you!
Answer by Rev. Lynn D.
If you trust the person who did the reading and he/she was making sense to you, then you should give it a chance. The person doing the reading makes all the difference. Time will tell if the reader was accurate or not.
It is hard for me to judge any further than that because I don’t know who the person is, if they have any training and if they are trustworthy.
In the right hands, Tarot readings are a wonderful way to help people solve problems. overcome obstacles and avoid bad errors in judgment.
Answer by Mystie010
The best thing to do is to keep a diary of what was said to you and see if any of the events come true. It is possible that your reading may just be down to luck or the ‘Barnum effect’.
The ‘Barnum Effect’ is where people find meaning in what is said to them and tend to fit what is said to them into what is happening in their lives.
For example a famous study once gave the same horoscope reading to a bunch of students. The students believed that the horoscope reading was related to their star sign – but it wasn’t, in fact it was the same for everyone. Yet the vast majority of the students said that the horoscope related very closely to them and what was happening in their lives.
Maybe you should ask some of your friends if your reading would make any sense to them?
I have been involved with Tarot for years and although I believe that often the Barnum Effect is to blame for subjects claiming accuracy and relevance to their lives, I have also found readings to be spookily accurate. Hope this helps..
Question : Where in a bookstore can i find tarot cards?
I really want to buy some and im thinking about buying a book on tarot card/reading too.
Answer by nickipettis
only a few bookstores carry Tarot cards.
Try a new age bookstore, an old fashioned head shop, a feminist bookstore, or amazon.com.

They, most bookstores don’t stock many cards, anymore.
Maybe an occult shop.
Better yet, for large selection, go to

They can be good meditative devices.

and out and out prayer.
Answer by believer_in_jesus37421
Have you ever asked yourself why you find things like this so fascinating? The reason, I suspect, is because down inside you feel uncertain and nervous about the future and think these things might help you feel more confident.
But this is precisely why I urge you to put your trust in God alone for the future. As I have often said, predictions like these about the future are almost never on target (or else they are too vague to really mean anything). Why build your life around them or get your guidance from them? They are only a substitute for the guidance you really need—which is from God.
My other concern, however, is one that I hope you will take very seriously. These things may seem innocent and amusing at first—but it’s easy to get more and more fascinated with them, and eventually become involved in occult practices that are not from God.
Don’t be misled: Occult practices are not from God, but from spiritual forces opposed to God. Instead, put your faith and trust in Christ. When we know Him, we know we are safely in His hands no matter what the future holds. The Bible is right: “When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists … should not a people inquire of their God?” (Isaiah 8:19).

Look in the New Age section, many local and chain bookstores carry them especially if they have a New Age section.
Answer by mysticalcurious
Christina the best place to look for tarot cards is online and at Barnes & Noble bookstores which have them in stock behind the counter. They have a wonderful New Age section that will help on your journey of cartomancy. The tarot is a wonderful tool for increasing and awakening your own natural god given intuition. It is a not a tool of the devil, evil, or dangerous. I have been using them for years and the accuracy is uncanny. Although not everything is written in stone, we have our own free will and therefor can change outcomes. The tarot works by tapping into our own intuition, not the devil as Believer will tell you. There is nothing wrong with what you believe in and you should always research to understand what interest you. Tarot increases your clairvoyance and the cards are a visual form of divination, by using different colors, symbols and archetypes. I would strongly suggest looking at some of the Dummy series of books to understand the art of cartomancy. A book I would recommend is The Tarot Plain and Simple by Anthony Louis, and the universal Waite deck because it is easy for a begginer. Don’t be overwhelmed by the amount of cards out there, let what catches your eye and fascination be your choice. You will know which one is meant for you. Some of the decks will even have meanings on them to help decipher readings. You can also buy bags for your deck to protect them and carry with you. Your cards can be stored in wooden box wrapped in silk,or the ready made tarot bags lined with a silk appearance lining. The outside prefrered color is black which is believed to dissapated or nuetralize negative energy, but they come in velvet greens, blue, purple, and rich reds. The reason I say this is that it is believed that cards and anything else transfers energy and if you are sensitive (empathic like me) it can transfer to you affecting your reading. I suggest always washing your hands to cleanse dirt and negative energy away from you, because if you just shook someone hands or touched someone sad or angry their energy is passed a little onto you. It is always good to burn insense or candles because they cleanse the area of negative energy and help you to focus as well.

Answer by xavia
Depends on where you live a local bookstore like Barnes and Nobel or Borders will carry them. A New Age bookstore or occult store will also carry them but most times they are a bit pricey.

I want to know if I have a wife in my future.

Not from me. I do not claim to be clairvoyant (which I will not trouble to define), but I have been reading Tarot cards for some 35 years. Not for free very often, though.

Answer by Holly B
Clairvoyants are merely people who pay attention to a person’s reactions to questions and their body language Some even excel at what they do.
As to a wife ,you can be proactive and attend singles dances in your age group. It’s alot more fun and a lot less money then a clairvoyant.
