I was thinking about tarot readings, and how sometimes they are wrong. But assuming the reading is correct and it predicts bad things or failure happening to you. Is it possible for you to do things differently and change your life path? Because now you know that what you are focusing on could be a failure so you do things differently in order to ensure success? And after a longer period you take another reading, will it show different or will it be the same? I mean, the cards or your fate can’t be fixed, unchangeable, can they?

  • My own personal experience with tarot, is similar to oracle cards. When I do readings its ironic the cards always show what I’m feeling or dealing with in that present moment.

    Other times I’m drawn to do a reading when I’m feeling a strong psychic vibe, something that I can’t see, but I feel..

    The cards reveal what I’m feeling.. and what to expect!!

    I never completely put my whole life and trust in the cards. Bcuz I dnt want to become paranoid or obsessed and forget to live and enjoy life in all its mysteries..

    Over the yrs..

    I must admit the cards hav shown only signs or glimpses of my future. Especially the outcome card.

    Being a single man my whole life,

    They show a hope of finding love one day, but more than that, the beginning of my own family. And that’s more than I would ever expect or dream of.

  • Well from what all of you are saying… it honestly sounds like your confusing a Oracle reading with a Tarot reading… Oracle readings are what is going on now. Its not a divine path and it is something that can be changed.
    A tarot reading is more of a set path on which things can be, not something that is easily changed and usually the readings have a much more in depth response.
    An Oracle reading is more of something that will tell you now where you are headed, and is something you can change on your own free will, if you decide to.
    Do I believe that Tarot readings will tell you your end, and that is it, no. But I believe they can give you a more set answer then the Oracle does, in order to change the outcome of a Tarot reading, I believe you have to make life changing choices to alter your “Destiny” other than a choice to change the outcome of something smaller.

  • Yes you can change the outcome. the reading often is based upon a question that you ask the cards. If you do not follow the path the cards lay out you can change the outcome.

  • A Tarot reading can suggest a future outcome and if this is something that you don’t like then you have the power within you to change this. This is called empowering – giving you the power to shape your own future. Although this then makes the Tarot reading outcome not true – at least you are on your way to a better future and that is what it is all about.

  • I have been reading and teaching tarot professionally for many years. I tell my querents and students that fortune telling is only about 1% of a good reading.

    If you are getting and receiving tarot readings that are all about predicting the future then the tarot is not being fully actualized. The future changes in every moment and is never for certain.

    When I give a reading I clarify the past and the surrounding atmosphere of the present to help bring clarity. A good reading should bring understanding of contributing factors and making better choices. I will usually sum up with where the present path is leading and possible results.

    The reader has a huge responsibility in that words are very powerful. A well educated tarot reader fully understands this. The power of suggestion is alive and well…as your question clearly states.

  • Hello Vixen

    Of course you can. A reading is about probable outcome if you decide to stay the same as you are at the time of the reading.

    If you change your mind, take action then different results can be reached, although most of us stay with our tried & tested methods of going through life, not willing to make changes.

    The cards outcomes can also be different due to the readers clarity, if your reading for yourself you can see what you wish rather than what is.

  • Sorry, you can’t change your future…

    If your future is predicted and you change it, then you never got your future accurately predicted in the first place… It’s a paradox. That’s why future telling doesn’t exist.

    That’s why you can’t go back in time and kill yourself… Because if you did you wouldn’t have been around long enough to go back in time… and.. kill yourself.

  • You can change your life path any time you wish, it’s all about choice, tarot cards are for guidance – not a hard & fast blueprint of your life…

    But they are useful to know what “might” happen…..

  • In my earthly waltz before accepting Christ I lived with a brilliant tarot carder….?? She could read my poker cards mentally about 88% correct, she thought she could read my tarot till I got caught filling her head with my thoughts so she thought they were hers. Then she could read anyones cards if I was in house or yard or nearby.So not a good science with so many liabilities. We parted, she spent some time in clock bird ward and I found Christ again. I have never been so so blessed in life since that path change, came back to my origin and my eternal future.

  • It would be stupid to take life altering decisions based on unproven system like tarot card readings.Have some faith in your own wisdom and judgment.

  • why couldnt you? they are wrong more often then they are right because they are just random cards.
    The only meaning or truth you can get out of tarot cards is the meaning and truth you put into them.

  • The cards don’t predict anything. They’re paper & ink. The reader can only guess. Whether you change your life or not is up to you.

  • They don’t mean that something is going to be one exact way… they just suggest possibilities

    And they could be very wrong about those possiblities
