Is playing with tarot cards the same as playing with a ouija broad ?

do Tarot Card open doors, like the Ouija Broad does?


  1. Ouija broads were too exotic and cool to play with me.. They always said either no or goodbye and certainly never opened any doors for me. I hear they like guys with crystal balls.

  2. Yes they do. You are asking someone other than God or Jesus to give you answers. You are opening the door for them. And once you do that, there are no guarantees on your safety. This is very serious stuff, and very real. My advise is dont even have them in your house.

  3. Actually, no. They are quite different. Tarot cards are a tool you use to divine information, sure enough, but they are more linked to your own subconscious mind, and it is possible to just do a reading by the book without any spiritual connection whatsoever (not that it’ll be worth anything).
    However, Ouija doesn’t do anything at all unless you are connected with a spirit being, and then the spirit talks to you one letter/number/symbol/word at a time. That is drastically different, and when it’s done wrongly (which it almost always is), can even be dangerous. Nothing is being “opened” properly, usually, but it allows for certain spirits which may not be truthful or even nice to mess with you. Tarot really doesn’t offer much opportunity for that to happen.
    Both are effective and accurate if you know how to protect yourself and establish a link with the right kind of spirit.
    I’d suggest doing some study before ‘playing’, as these shouldn’t be treated as games. I recommend using them wisely as tools once you know how, but if you want to play, how about Monopoly?

  4. Well, I guess it depends on how you want to use them. There are broadly three ways that people use tarot cards…
    The first and original way is not what you might expect and so requires a little explanation. Tarot cards were invented in mid 15th century Italy for the Milanese court. They consist of two parts, a standard pack of Latin suited playing cards and a fifth suit of picture cards. These extra cards took as their theme, not an occult philosophy but a Christian triumph procession – hence their early name of trionfi, meaning triumphs and from which we get our word trump. It was the invention of tarot that marked the invention of trumps in card games and this is what they were created for, a family of card games that continues to be played throughout continental Europe today. The only doors opened this way are those to new friends – the games really are very good.
    The second use, more familiar to English speakers is for fortune telling. In that some folk try to divine answers using ouija boards, I guess it is a little like tarot. However, with Ouija people are trying to contact spirits – with results that are often easily explained away these days. With tarot, people seem to believe that there is something special about the cards themselves that reveals the future. However, without the occult origin that so many people still believe in, fortune telling with tarot cards is no different in kind from fortune telling with tea leaves, dominoes, or knuckle bones.
    Finally, and again very different from ouija, people often see in tarot cards a reflection of their own spiritual beliefs and use them as a focus for meditation.

  5. Tarot cards can ‘open doors’ in a mental sense. Can give you more insight into what you are asking about
    i have used an ouija board and don’t find the two to be the same really. I had quite a bad experience with these boards and find tarot to be allot ‘safer’! haha and they are not toys to be ‘played ‘ with.
