Does anyone think tarot cards are accurate?

Answer by faesson
depends on your definition of ‘accurate’

go to a Tarot webpage, where each card is explained in standard meaning and do a reading.

i find it very easy to see a pertinent interpretation of my personal life and hopes and dreams.

now, is it some card? or just the way the definition of the card reads?

you should check out James Randi’s demo of horoscopes. When given a generic horoscope a roomfull of people said it was either ‘close’ or ‘dead-on’ accurate. And everyone in the room had the exact same horoscope.

Answer by Lillith
Tarot cards are only as accurate as the person who reads them.
Some people are natural readers and use much more than just the book meanings. These are the readers I find to give a very accurate and detailed reading.
Those that learn the book meanings can also give a good reading, but with less depth.

I read tarot, and I have experienced accuracy that surprised even me. I read for someone halfway around the world, via email, and the cards showed me an event in her life that happened nearly 20 years past, I saw it happen right down to the month that it happened. This did not come by way of book meanings either.

Answer by Pam R

The tarot themselves are 78 pieces of laminated paper, any accuracy that they contain rests with the reader & the clarity of their mind.


Answer by PsiTips
The many different tarot decks will all portray symbolic imagery which must then pass through your psychic senses and, given the context of the questions asked, bring forth a tarot card meaning that significantly answers your question.

If you are using Tarot cards as an oracle, you may be more inclined to read card meanings and spreads. But if using Tarot Cards as a tool for Psychic Ability you would be less likely to hold to any hard and fast guide lines. I’m a profession psychic and use Tarot Cards in a random way. In 25 years of professional readings I’ve never used any ‘meanings, spreads or reversals’ of tarot cards from any books.

So if you want to develop ‘Psychic Ability’ throw the books and guidelines away and let the images inspire you. But you may need to try the Rider Waite or another imaged deck.

Here’s the how-to of reading tarot cards with your psychic perception in six simple steps.

You can use this four minute video as a brief meditation on the tarot that, repeatedly viewed, will help you learn how to read tarot cards psychically.

To tap in to it more you can go to my free psychic development pages here:

But on the other hand, if you want to use the Tarot as an oracle, a form of divination that needs no real ‘psychic ability’, then keep the books and use the meanings and spreads if you prefer.

Here is a free download demo for a great Tarot program. To keep the size of the demo manageable it contains the Rider/Waite deck, the actual program will have 10 complete decks. This Demo version of Tarot is a full working copy for 30 days. So you get 30 days to study meanings and spreads!

There are a couple of good documentaries about the Tarot on

Answer by Tahuti
I use them mostly for self-psychology. Look up Carl Jung and Tarot, and see how this works. Often they can predict things I have hidden from myself in my subconscious, so I can change my own future. (we make our future)

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Question about tarot death card?

I’ve heard that if the death card is dealt in a tarot reading it does not necessarily indicate physical death, but the end of some aspect of the person’s life (such as a job change, separation from a significant other, etc). If this is true, how would the reader be able to tell the difference between a card foretelling physical death and a card foretelling the end of a phase? Do tarot readers believe they can predict actual, physical death? How specific or vague are the results of tarot readings?

I don’t practice any of this, but I need the answer for a project. I would very much appreciate an answer from anyone who is knowledgeable on the subject. Sources would also be great if you can provide them via a link. Thanks!
Hmm good answers. Thanks so much for your help, guys!

Answer by Lance
I can tell you that tarot cards have an accuracy rate amazingly similar to that of a good guesser.

Answer by Steve
yes, the Death card symbolizes change.
tarot readings are exactly as specific as the reader chooses to make them, given that they have no predictive power. A good reader operates in generalities that the listener (mark) will apply to themselves and think to be more specific than it actually is. The reader can then target in on those aspects of the reading that has been accepted and simply ignore the parts that aren’t.
The reason that the cards have broad meanings is that this prevents easily verifiable outcomes. Oh, that doesn’t mean death–it means change. Change can be anything, while death is very specific.
Some tarot readers may believe what they read in the cards. But if you do it for any length of time, you realize you are telling people what you think they want to hear. I’ve read for twenty years and don’t believe a word of what I say when I do it, but it amazes my friends.

Answer by i am dog
the meaning of a tarot card is usually felt by the diviner. it’s very subjective. i would have to assume that, if someone was actually going to die, the reader would feel it. i’ve given a few readings and only one person got the death card, he asked two questions and got it both times. neither time did i feel it meant his acutal death, but i did mention that everyone dies, in case he wasn’t aware that this was ultimately in his future…but for him, it seemed to indicate his obsession with death, which he confirmed.

Answer by godsuncledave
It’s all bullshit.

The human brain works by looking for patterns, even when there are none to find.

Answer by Wage Slave
Wow, tough crowd here at R&S…

The Death Card does not symbolize physical death, but rather significant change in one’s life. Usually, the change requires some aspects of your current self to “die,” or to be left behind, and the querant is holding on to those aspects. For example, a young man is going to get married and move in with his bride to be. He doesn’t want to completely let go of identity as a single man. He still wants to go out with the guys, maybe go on vacations with them. He’s not too keen on pooling their income into a single bank account or letting her know when he decides to go to happy hour after work. In short, he’s unwilling to completely embrace married life. He wants to hang on to parts of his carefree bachelor days.

Death is usually depicted as a skeletal knight blocking the path on your journey of life. You cannot defeat death. You can hide or take detours, but you will never grow until you face Death and allow yourself to be “killed.” Then you wake up further down your life path with Death at your back. It’s about holding on to things which you have outgrown.

The American Tarot Association has a good site for cards interpretations (of course).

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : tarot question: is it possible to block yourself so that you cant be read?

For instance, if you didnt want a tarot reader reading up on you, is it possible to “block” yourself so that you cannot be read? if so, how?

oh and for the trolls, who call themselves “christians”: thanks for the concern, but i wont give up my tarot cards just because you tell me Im going to hell.
EDIT: i dont read to see my future. The believe the future isnt set in stone, anyway. I am worried about people being able to read my secret feelings…I know tarot readers can do that, because I can do that for people i read for…

Answer by Captain INSANO
Hard to block something that is fake.

Answer by Love99
you cant block your future

Answer by handrober
I’ve seen some spells to do stuff like that but i don’t know if that’s what you meant. If your comfortable with spell work than you might wanna check them out. If you meant physically doing it then i don’t think there is a way.

Answer by Rose
Good for you! No one has the right to judge or condemn you!

But anyway, about the tarot blocking:
It’s pretty hard for anyone, even the most experienced tarot readers, to read someone’s future without them actually BEING there. But for those who can do it, I don’t think it’s possible to block it.

Then again, if you told someone that you didn’t want to be read and they read you anyway, then there’s something seriously wrong with that.

Answer by Laura J
Here’s the thing, the cards are the same concept of the I Ching or Runes. You have many possibilities that are so generalized that one specific out come can be true for everyone or anyone.

So, its a rather moot question, because there is nothing psychic or supernatural about it, so there is nothing to block.

So, the answer is your blocked all the time if you think Tarot readings or readings like them are seeing your future. More like, a block head!

People fool themselves as to say “oh it’s so accurate” well, you do the same reading for everyone who doesn’t suspect it, and they’ll say the same thing.

Answer by Roy K
Tarot card reading is fake . Sometimes the readers are good poker players , good at reading other people . Other times they are just lucky or vague . If you let a reader know you are concerned about being read , you give that person an advantage over you they can use to control your reading .
Pick up a science book and make a decoration out of your cards .

Answer by Danielle
No. For tarot cards do not work in psychic ways. The reader just reads the cards. Nothing psychic about it.

Nothing fake about it either. It is just an old tradition that some people carry on this day. People who read your cards don’t know if theyre right or not, and a good, genuine reader will explain this to you, and explain that it’s nothing to do with being psychic. They will explain to you that they dont know how it’s going to turn out, and reading tarot is actually similar to an old ‘game’.

The fake ones are the ones like ‘Mystic Meg’ – who try and fool people to believe that tarot cards involve being ‘psychic’. It doesnt.

Tarot cards are just like those games you play on Halloween. Peel an apple, or pour wax from a candle, into water – and it will show your future spouses initials. It’s just that. A tradition.

Answer by hythere
Most practitioners would need you there with them, or maybe even to have handled the cards to get anything clear about you, but if you’re concerned about privacy, there are a couple of things you can do.

I don’t think there’s any passive defense against someone deliberately looking you up. But you could make yourself “invisible” so they wouldn’t bother, or plant instructions to be notified if anyone messes around in your mind so you could go to a more active defense system.

For invisibility, I would recommend putting a thick fog of bland dimension around you or your home, perhaps with a mirror behind it, to keep people from really seeing you. Check it periodically, especially when you’ve been active with magical practices, because they light people up like a beacon.

For alerts…when you meditate, try to make contact with you vigilance, personified as you see fit. It knows just about everything that goes on around your mind. Give it a set way of contacting you if something goes on (such as a ringing in your ears, a flash of red light in your vision, whatever you’re comfortable with)

hope it helps!

Answer by borderless
i dont think that christian playing tarot will go to hell.
playing tarot to know your future from unknown source of power is also means you agree to put your life to be arrange by that power.

you cant possibly block their power cause its their right to tell you, but you can decide to believe it or not. once you believe what they tell you and it happen accordingly, also means they arrange your destiny.

but if you chose not to believe, they will try to tempt, make things look as if its real so you buy the ‘contract’. but a few times when things occur as the tarot said, you pray tell God whats happening, with the name of christ you declare you have no relationship with them, soon you will see the result.

tarot card will not bring you to hell, they just plan your life. they don’t know your future cause God is above all creation, your future save with Him, but as if you decide to let your future to be decide by others, its like you give up your right for future blessing and more great things to come that you and me might not know. may be yo will live in worried what will happen tomorrow or may be you will live in stronger position of life but do you feel save from time to time and do you breath your life and take hold your life decision every moment? or our decision is base on unknown direction to make one for you?
think about it, think about your freedom and your free will of doing things you like where lesson and reward will enrich your life.

i am just helping, no offend. sorry if i have offend. hehehe =) hope you will found your direction of life.

Answer by Kristabella
I think its possible. You ever read for someone and the cards you pull just do not make sense? Or, like when you read for a skeptic and the reading is totally inaccurate because they’re not open to tarot cards. I think the situation you described works the same way.
