Should you be calling upon the spirit world in order to enlist their aid in your day to day life? What about for really important matters like say winning large cash awards and fabulous prizes in online lotteries and sweepstakes? Shouldn’t those that have passed over to the other side help out the living, those they left behind pick those magic numbers and can tarot cards be used in order to find out?
Well I for one will take any advantage I can get when I’m picking my lucky numbers. I’ve used birthdays, sports heroes jersey numbers, former addresses, shoot depending on how I’m feeling that day I may even use my weight. And if a spirit from the afterlife wants to help me win some cash? Who am I to turn down that kind of assistance?
But what are Tarot cards and how can mid 15th century European cards communicate with the undead?
The Tarot is a pack of playing cards, usually 78 that originated in Europe. In the 18th century they went from being used for fun card games to being used by mystics, psychics and occultists in efforts at divination or to map out mental and spiritual paths. In fact in many cases a Tarot card reader will claim to be able to see into the future with the help of the spirit world.
Divination using playing cards is in evidence as early as 1540 in a book entitled The Oracles of Francesco Marcolino da Forlì which allows a simple method of divination, though the cards are used only to select a random oracle and have no meaning in themselves.
The 78-card tarot deck used by esotericists has two distinct parts:
- The Major Arcana (greater secrets), or trump cards, consists of 22 cards without suits: The Magician, The High Priestess, The Empress, The Emperor, The Hierophant, The Lovers, The Chariot, Strength, The Hermit, Wheel of Fortune, Justice, The Hanged Man, Death, Temperance, The Devil, The Tower, The Star, The Moon, The Sun, Judgement, The World and The Fool.
- The Minor Arcana (lesser secrets) consists of 56 cards, divided into four suits of 14 cards each; ten numbered cards and four court cards. The court cards are the King, Queen, Knight and Page/Jack, in each of the four tarot suits. The traditional Italian tarot suits are swords, batons/wands, coins and cups; in modern tarot decks, however, the batons suit is often called wands, rods or staves, while the coins suit is often called pentacles or disks.
Can they help you win the lottery? Pick your lucky numbers? Well that’s for you to decide. Have you ever gotten a tarot reading? Have you used the tarot or any “other worldly” means to play the lottery?
