In early history, people always had a fascination in foreseeing their future. Kings had surrounded themselves with priests, astrologers, and fortune tellers to guide and warn them in every choice they made to rule their kingdoms. Even the birth of Jesus Christ was foretold by prophets and astrologers. Ancient seers also used cards to predict the future. Card reading thus plays an important role in divination history.
Humankind had a strong belief that their destiny is ruled by the movement of the sun, moon, stars, and planets. Many read one’s future based on signs and marks found in the lines of his palm. The fear and thrill in discovering one’s future continued to this day. The first used medium of divination is an Oracle, which means “to speak” in Latin. Oracles are priests or priestesses who gave wise advice. This form of prediction and fortune telling was believed to be inspired by the gods and that the gods talked to humans through these oracles.
Besides these diviners, there are other individuals who practice other forms of predicting future events. Some study astrology, the oldest form of divinations that interprets the alignments of celestial bodies like the planets and the stars. There are those who can see the aura around an individual by just looking at them and the glow radiating from them. There are palmists who read the lines in one’s palm. Others are psychic mediums, numerologists, distant readers, psychometrics, playing card readers, tarot card readers, spiritual healers, dream interpreter, and so on.
Psychic Card Reading
Psychic card reading is used in learning what the future stores in one’s life. Usually, the psychics use Tarot cards, playing cards or angel cards. Among them, Tarot cards are probably the most popular. There are two widely used Tarot decks as tools for psychic card reading. The first one is the Rider-Waite, the most commonly used with 78 cards and plenty of symbolism. The other one is the Minchiate Etruria, involving 97 cards and some trump cards that represent the four elements and astrological houses.
The Minor Arcana is what we use to play with like in poker, blackjack, and other card games. The Major Arcana includes two sets of cards numbering from one to twenty-one. Each number represents a stage of a person’s life. The psychics will analyze these cards as well as each number and character to unveil the secrets in one’s life. The more professional the psychics are, the more accurate their predictions are. Only trained and experienced psychics can interpret the meaning of each card.
Psychic card reading is believed to give a dose of the extra thrill for those who want extra adrenaline in their veins. How about those with weak hearts? Undergoing such rituals may bring a chill to their spine. They would rather see the destiny unfolding in their lives with surprises than having them foretold. In some religions, these kinds of predicting or fortune telling are not allowed.
