Using Tarot to predict world events

Recommended Posts

I recently did my first reading to predict an on going political situation in my country.  All the five cards I pulled were Majors (I was not surprised at this, as it is constantly on the TV & radio, and it is going to affect everyone ... so it is hot on the psychic airwaves if you like), and I have made my notes and predictions, and will watch with interest to see it it comes to ground.

 

Anyway, I would like to ask the tarot people what is their experience of predicting world/country/political even sporting events? 

 

I'm sure it would be possible, if one were skilled enough, to predict say something like a world disaster or economic collapse ... there is a tarot lore story of J P Morgan having a tarot reading with the Tower & six of wands within, & his reader telling him to sell all his stock, then days later there was a collapse, and he bought all his stock back for a pittance of the selling price, which made him a very rich man.

 

Has anyone predicted world or country events through tarot?  Would like to hear the stories.

 

Or has anyone got views on this.

 

Or has anyone recently read cards & has a prediction...would be very interested to hear of the reading.

I haven't, I have a very dark world view and I'm sure it would affect my take.

I know after the fact, many said they saw the world trade towers collapse.

hindsight is 20 20

 

THanks for your input AJ.  Yes, I wonder if I affected the cards i drew by my political bias...but there again the start of what the cards predicted seems to be happening.

 

There's a student tarot social media site i'm on, and someone did a reading for Trump...it caused uproar, the arguments were quite viscous, and some students got banned from the site.  Not a good nor healthy topic for the tarot table!

Back in 2016, the day I was going to vote for Hillary Clinton, I asked if she was going to win.  It was a yes.  Well she won the popular vote, yes but not the electoral college so she lost.  I took that yes and had so much happiness in my heart that when the votes were being counted that night, I was even more crushed she lost because I had went ahead and read before hand.  I got no happiness that she did win the popular vote, she was not my president.

 

I used to say I don't read for predictions but I'm now more of Grizabella's head that reading the tarot is fortunetelling.  Just like Mme. Lenormand was called a fortuneteller.  Even if it's just insights you're giving to the sitter, it's still putting it all together to tell that sitter what is happening and what can be.  It is the "what is possible" and "what can be" that makes me call myself a fortuneteller.  How do I know this works?  Because so many times if I've read someone who reads tarot for themselves, will say they too saw a connection in their reading to mine so in a way I am confirming what they already have a feeling they know.

Yes thank you Saturn Celeste[/member] for your input ...it sounds like political bias & you wanted her to win so much that you affected the reading.  Or, at the time of the reading it was a close call, and I have a feeling that tarot works partly on probability ... there's maths as well as esoterism and art...but that's just a feeling.  I've been really trying hard to work how tarot works, but my thoughts go round in circles.  All i know is that is a very powerful  tool

Cookie, to me the most important thing to reading tarot is the INTENTION.  As I shuffle I say the name of the client, their sign and their question.  As I shuffle I repeat that over and over.  That is the intention I am putting into my deck.  Sometimes with unusual cards I need, I will stat that there are 2 questions, card one is the first question and card two is the second question because I draw from the top.  So that is the intention I am putting into my cards as I shuffle for a question like that.  The other most important thing to me is TRUST!  I trust my cards totally.  I don't doubt the cards I draw.  I had to learn this by doing SO many readings and getting more and more feedback so I could see my cards were giving me true messages.  After that, the trust came freely.  Once you trust your cards and imbue intention into them as you shuffle you'll find yourself with stronger readings. ;)

 

Oh, and I feel I am just the messenger.  I don't think anything in my mind how I feel it should turn out, it isn't my reading, it is theirs.

Do I think tarot is spiritual and meant for our insight into ourselves, life? Absolutely, first and foremost. Do I think tarot is predictive--I absolutely do. They aren't mutually exclusive. THAT said, the predictive qualities shown can change so long as things are fluid and the person in front of you can change, or the situation can change. And that happens. Most of the time, though, it doesn't, because, in my opinion, it's very easy for us all to feel "stuck", which is why we got to readers in the first place. I also think the entire world's energy is "clogged up", too. But there I digress. I have "seen" things that alarmed me...Most notably I got into dealing with local food sources and advocating for local farmers/sustainability because quite a few years back I kept "seeing" food contamination outbreaks, and once I saw a virus (this was I swear ten years back), and while things have absolutely turned in that direction, it could be because I'm predisposed to "seeing" it now, and nothing's to say it couldn't change if things change (again, back to point one...unlikely, but still). Just because you know, doesn't make it absolute. Thank God for the wheel spinning.

Whether the cards can show us the future raises the question of how all the different world leaders would read the same spread of the same cards.  Not the same, I bet.  And as far as whether I think tarot can predict world events, Saturn and Sandy have expressed pretty much what I would say, thank you! 

 

Sharyn is right about politics not being a good topic so I'm staying strictly away.  But I think it's safe to say that few sentient beings alive are happy with the world today, no matter what their political ideology.  So I will hearten myself with Sandy's closing words, "thank God for the wheel spinning".

 

In July 1970 I saw Ike and Tina Turner in concert in a very small venue, the Sheraton Hyannis.  Interesting segue, right?  They were glorious young animal spirits in superb human bodies.  My at-the-time mother in law was the Housekeeping Director at the hotel and met with all the celebrity guests daily.  Ike and Tina were among the friendliest, most down to earth of all the stars she ever met and they seemed to love each other deeply, but every night they had screaming hysterical fights.  All of that feeling came out on stage.

 

Why did I just tell you that?  Because "thank God for the wheel spinning" put me in mind of this song.  I don't know when this version was recorded, but they performed it just like this

 

And if thinking about future world events has stressed you out, this song will dance it all out of you!

This is one of my goals for this year, I want to try and see if I can predict things coming up (good and bad) in the world each month but been so busy this Jan I have not had a chance yet. I know though that I can a picture of something happening in future events but I don't seem to get the 100% message of it, it all makes more sense afterwards. So frustrating, maybe I need to get more experienced in tarot predicting and reading to really get it. I enjoy doing it and do it just for fun, I like predicting!

 

I was inspired to make it a goal this year by a blog I read of an astrologer. It's members only so cannot post but once a month she has an American tarot reader come and make predictions for the month, she has quite a good rate of accuracy and her job as a pro tarot reader is predictions rather than other forms of tarot.

 

There are people who are just predictors professionally, more in astrology but some in tarot. Predictive reading of financial markets is a specialist field in itself and people who buy and sell shares and in financial risky fields pay for predictions.

 

I've been trying to read on some events affecting my country and I cannot get a clear picture but the picture is not clear, it's constantly changing! However I have a intuitive feeling about it (beyond tarot) so will be interesting to see if it comes true in the end.

 

I do believe we can predict the future but also you can get it wrong, even the more experienced predictive tarot reader in the world gets predictions wrong. I am just happy to get some stuff right :)

Hi thanks Saturn Celeste[/member] ... I like your key words you are using, they are powerful.  I always think this is it, yesterday was yesterday & the big flaw is going to show up today...the cards are going to stop...ot was all in my mind.  But they just keep on keeping on being right.  Totally trusting divination come with experience, i believe

This is so normal Cookie[/member]. I used to think like that a lot in my first year too - heck I think like that from time to time even now! It’s just the overthinking rational little critic in my brain that pops up and who wants to instill me with doubt. But it’s OK. It keeps me humble I think.

Yes, thank you, sandrang123[/member] that's a very very interesting point.  I read something by a well known tarot reader that the way tarot works is that it "predicts" from past behaviours which way the person is going to act...and the person also said that even when the person is warned against that same old route they will often take that path.  This is purely psychological & mathematical.  But i very much agree with you that there is a certain clairvoyance, telepathy, and the like also.

 

That's why, like you with the contamination to the food you 'saw", certain people "see" world events before they happen (although it's not a warning as the people who get these messages can do nothing about it).  And the terminology is odd too, people say they "predicted it" (although you didn't use this) as though it were a card in a game of poker.

 

Apologies, i've lost my thought pattern, it's early in the morning here,  perhaps i'll rem later.

Hi Raggydoll[/member] ... yes, I very much agree.  i truly believe as in all Art the moment one takes the "talent" for granted & believes it is a god-given-right & starts to believe their own hype is the moment the inspiration & uniqueness & talent dry's up.  We see it all the time in our Rock Stars ... by the 4th album they just don't care anymore and are just doing it for the money, and more often than not it is stale compared to the energy fueled and groundbreaking previous albums.(not all of them though!)

 

Haha...don't know how i got from divination to rock stardom but you get what i mean, i'm sure

DanielJUK[/member] ...i'd be very interested if we could both do a Brexit prediction reading then post here and see what comes of it?  as it's all happening this week, we can see the results!  I've already done one (it was powerful) but i'd really like to do another.  Get back to me if you're interested in doing this.

It's the same song, Cookie - it's called Proud Mary and the chorus is

 

"Big wheels keep on turning

Proud Mary keeps on burning

Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river"

 

and I actually did have a relevant point to the discussion but I never got back to it after my stream of consciousness episode - that "thank God for the wheel spinning" moment...and now I don't remember what I wanted to say.  I'll be back if I do.

 

It's a great thread, Cookie.

Hey Cookie,

 

Yeah, I do world event readings quite regularly, and I don't think you have to be a particularly skilled reader if you use a simple method.

 

There are two such methods mentioned in this thread:

https://www.thetarotforum.com/using-tarot/yesno-reading-method/

 

A week or two back, I did a reading predicting that Ms. May's chances of winning Tuesday's BREXIT vote had improved owing to the influence of financial power..... but that success was still in the 'maybe' category. This confuses me, as it seems she hasn't got a chance in hell. Well, we'll see.

 

Anyway, on tarot predictions as purely psychological and mathematical: Interesting, and it sounds kinda neat and rational. But it's also just one idea among many and still doesn't explain how bits of card-board can rummage around in the churn of existence and come up with a statistical probability. Besides, just because you've whipped up a mathematical model or some such of a process, no matter how predictive, doesn't mean you've ultimately explained it. Then you have to ask yourself if ALL future events are really within our control?

 

So, at the end of the day, "psychological and mathematical" is on a footing with "it's the tarot fairies," imo. :)

 

Embrace the woo!

 

Devin.

 

P.S. When it comes to sporting matches, personal experience has taught me that your chances of success are greatly improved by doing the reading relatively close to kick-off time.

P.S. I hear you on political discussion.... depending on the company you're in, just about any political position can get you lynched these days. :(

That's it .., that's a wonderful song.

P.S. When it comes to sporting matches, personal experience has taught me that your chances of success are greatly improved by doing the reading relatively close to kick-off time.

P.S. I hear you on political discussion.... depending on the company you're in, just about any political position can get you lynched these days. :(

 

That's an interesting method you got there, devin[/member] .  I'll give it a whirl tonite as my footie teams playing.

 

Yes and as for the predictive/psychological approach to why they work, i agree it one of many, although i suspect there's a little bit/truth in all the theories, some more than others.  But as a metaphysist you'll be aware of the theory of infinity, and the Multiverse where everything's happened already... perhaps thousands of slightly different variations of the same scenario, and tarot is just replaying the most likely one of these.  Anyway it's monday morning!  Better give my brain a break

 

Would you like to join a tarot Brexit prediction devin[/member] ? And anyone else. 

 

And i go one better than embracing the woo, I'll embrace the woo-woo !

Don't know much about Tina Turner Grandma[/member] , but didn't she do a wonderful song called "Rolling" which would fit nicely in with the "...the wheel spinning.."

 

You're making me feel really old here, Cookie[/member] !  :))

Will do a reading on Brexit and post here. I will do it tomorrow before the vote on the deal later in the day. I am going to ask 5 questions with a card for each prediction.....

 

- what will the result of the vote tomorrow be? (this is Theresa May's vote to back her deal or oppose it)

- what will happen after the vote? (ie what happens next, especially if the vote doesn't get through), govt falls, new election, new referendum, no deal exit?

- will we leave on the 29th March in any form?

- what will be the status of Brexit at the end of 2019? (longer term)

- something else to know about the situation (random message from the cards)

 

It's hard to read on but that's my idea of reading on the topic. If anyone has any suggestions on how to read on it and what positions, do please suggest! I don't have time for a really huge reading though. If anyone else wants to join in, please do  <3

 

Shall do mine tomorrow morning  :thumbsup:
