Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Where can I find cheap tarot cards?

I really want to get into tarot cards. They just interest me so much and I need a new hobby. The deck of cards that really interest me is Terry Donaldson’s Dragon Tarot and the only problem is that their really really expensive! Can anyone give me a link perhaps of a online store where I can order them for less then $ 29.00 or tell me a location of a store that sells them in Pembroke Pines Fl?

You can usually find tarot cards at major bookstores such as Barnes and Noble. However, I usually like to shop online, I like the initial thrill of purchasing the item, the anticipation as well as the unexpected joy in receiving the item as I usually forget it’s on its way. I have been looking into buy a new deck myself and if you shop around you can most likely find a deck as low as $ 3 on Amazon.com, although between $ 3-9 range you can find an awful lot of decks. The specific deck you mentioned I found on amazon for about seven dollars.

Hope this Helps and Good Luck 😀

I found them at Overstock.com for $ 9.45. But it said the sell out Risk is very high. I guess that means they don’t have many.

I found them on Amazon Market Place for under $ 6.00 new (about $ 10.00 once you add shipping) and used it starts at $ 0.21 with about $ 4.00 shipping.

I’ve bought many of my decks used an never had a problem.
Good Luck!

Amazon.com without question. You can even pick up nearly new second hand decks for under $ 10.

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..

Answer by Art

Answer by Cindy
I am not a religious scholar, but I would be interested to see the exact chapter, book and verse makes reference to divination. Not some preacher’s broad interpretation that “this means divination” but actual words from the Bible. Once I have that, I’ll read it in context and see what I think. I’m sorry, I do not know enough about Buddhism or Hinduism to even guess what the religious position would be.
By the way, tarot is a tool for self-knowledge that has (for some reason) been burdened with all kinds of false negative associations. If you are interested, you should be able to proceed with learning about them (I don’t think you would be condemned to the fires for just reading about it?) by going to www.learntarot.com and reading what you find there. It is a lot of work to do well and you may find you aren’t interested. But at least you will be more educated about what tarot is.

Answer by Moon Masque Mystic
In regard to the Christian religion, the first detailed reference accusing the Tarot of being connected to evil is found in a sermon given by a Franciscan friar in Italy between 1450 and 1480 AD. In the friar’s sermon, the ‘devil’ was credited as creating and naming the Tarot Trumps, thus labeling the Tarot a ‘tool of the devil’ in Victorian Christian history. However, the friar’s negativity toward the Tarot was not in response to the Tarot being used for divination, for during this time period the Tarot was utilized for gaming and gambling.

Despite numerous references in the Christian Bible of divination being applied by early Christians, many Christians today are still largely uncomfortable with the use of divination. This may be due to a verse found in the King James version of Leviticus 19:26, which states, “Do not practice divination or sorcery.” Interestingly enough this same book also warns against trimming a man’s beard.

As with any tool I believe the Tarot is only as good or bad as the person using it. When utilized responsibly the Tarot can be a wonderful gift for helping us better understand our lives and the world around us.

About Me:
————-
I’ve always ‘seen’ things that people would say are psychic and paranormal – and as a child, I had predictive dreams of ‘things to come’. Being that age, I was growing and playing but being a kid, I never really questioned this too much. Not until I got to about fourteen, when for some reason, I became very aware of it all and began to question. It was then that I suddenly started to realize that not everyone was having these dreams. Or that no-one else had their own ‘Cosmic Teachers’ who would come along, dressed in white and teach me.

I am not as anyone here, you can try by yourself, I am an expert in a different way, holding in my hand the secret of your life, I am from Land of the Pharaohs, I am Egyptian, we going to see together what is going on with you in your life, let’s start our journey into your deep inner and search into your Past, Present, and your near Future, only, for your own highest good. I used many tarot cards, I know lots of spreads, I hold lots of secrets, I can contact with your inner angels, to bring you your best thing for yourself and for your life.

Since being here on Oranum I have already been able to give guidance and spread the healing seeds of positivism, which I am a great believer of. Happiness is achievable for all of us if we learn how to ask for it.
