Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 2: The tarot is simply a deck of seventy-eight cards with imaginative images printed on them. The accuracy of the tarot depends on the intuitive faculties of the reader. Evil does not reside in pieces of cardboard; it is a distinctly human trait. Those who are old enough may recall the introduction to the classic radio program The Shadow: ‘Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!’

Tarot Books

Complete Book of Tarot: As you read the above interpretations, keep in mind that these comments represent merely my own impressions in the context of the question. If you have other insights or gut feelings about how these cards may answer the question, your views are equally as valid as mine and deserve respect for the wisdom that they contain. Sir Francis Bacon (1561–1626) advised us always to pay attention to thoughts that come unbidden, for they are often the most valuable.

Complete Book of Tarot: here is a well-known saying in computer science: garbage in, garbage out. The same holds true when asking questions of the tarot. A thoughtful, open-ended question is a prerequisite for obtaining a useful reading from the cards. In this chapter, we will look at various ways to phrase questions, some of which are productive and others of which are likely to result in ambiguous or less than helpful readings.

Tarot Triumphs: It’s important to keep this basic premise in mind and see the fundamental practicalities of Tarot reading as a foundation for our own forays into divination. We may study the deeper meanings, long history, and subtle nuances of the Tarot, but if we are going to give readings, the ultimate premise is that of question and answer. So, in this chapter, I invite you to begin as ‘fortune-teller,’ to consult the cards and obtain a reading in a similarly direct and simple way.
