Before I was converted to another religion.., I used to be a catholic and during my teenage years.., I had a friend who brought me a along with her when she visited a card reader and I was curious so I tried to get a glimpse of my future as what the card reader call it through card reading.., I find it hilarious all the things she predicted but of course I kept it to myself and I don't want to insult anybody.., she predicted that I will be kidnapped for rape!@!! Who would take that seriously..,? Have you tried card reading too..? Did some of the predictions came true?

Deve- I've been reading cards for five years, and I have yet to have a reading that wasn't spot on. However, I do not fortell the future either. My readings focus on an specific issue and is more of a guide. And like with anything in life the future is ever changing. The cards only map out a path based upon the Querents current path, but that could change if the Querent changes his or her thoughts, ideas, beliefs and so forth. I believe the tarot are very accurate, if done by someone who is attuned and studied as the major arcana map out on the Tree of Life (kabbalistically). I am unsure what your friend saw, but being that they were in your teenage years it could have been interpreted in a great many ways. I do not know the cards drawn or their placement or even the spread she was using, but my guess would be that the kidnap and rape were not "literal", but more "metaphorical". Only you can answer those synchronicities though. I have also had other professional readers do the tarot for me and their answers generally matched up with what I had read for myself. I use several decks, the most recent addition being The Bestian Tarot which a friend of ours designed. It was chillingly accurate that I created three spreads specific to his deck, did the readings again, and found them all to be the very same reading. I use that deck specifically when working on my own inner journey. Namaste-Anora

Hi Anora.. It's great to know a card reader who is attuned and can read cards accurately like you do.. I don't know how it really works.., being able to read one but I'm sure my friend would love to hear this from someone who is already experienced.., She is a fanatic of card reading of any sort..=)

I have never been to card readers before and I don't really believe in it. But one day my boss is acting kinda weird and all of us are worried as to why he doesn't act or think the way he used to so our manager went to a card reader and she said that our CEO is under a black magic. She said that we can't do anything but to pray for our CEO because the magic used is black and the intentions are bad and it's hard to correct it. She predicted the way our CEO is acting even if our manager didn't tell her any info about what our CEO has been acting lately. I just laughed when the helper informed me that they went to this card reader and predicted things to happened but somehow I said maybe she can read what was happening or maybe that was just pure luck that she knew what our CEO was acting. I believe in God so it's really hard for me to believe that others can read what's happening and what will be happening.

yes.., that is right.., God is the only one who knows our future., He was the one who made our life's perfect plan so there's no way of telling what is in store in or future for God himself will allow it to unfold in His perfect time.. but for me trying out a card reader's expertise was just for plain fun.. nothing less nothing more...=)

i do know if they are true, or just a coincidence , we go to a fortune teller to tell our fortune. the fortune teller told us that we will be having a car on December, guest what? we did have , an opel astra, i don't know if is just tru or just a coincidence, for me fortune tellers are fortune tellers, all i can believe is GOD, and believe in your self. some prediction came true, some are not, like me, numerous prediction comes true to me. ^_^ but its just fortune, fortune teller

My aunt dragged my along with her one day when I was like 13. It was a lone out side and the place didnt open for hours. I used playing cards. It was really crazy but true. He flipped out the year i was born and flipped out the year my husband would be born and that he would be of indian decent, mind you i was 13. My husband is actually born in that year and his grandparents are actually native american. It's all crazy. He said I'd have two boys and a girl and would go to school to be successful but would be intertwined with the military. All this this was true as well. I dont take it to heart and serious. I just see it as a funny predicition that came true.

I did a little in the past, but wasn't sure. Then I heard it was about a gift that some people have it developed while others don't. I bought the book to learn and it came with the cards. I didn't do much readings but there was this time that a friend of mine was surprise of me reading something in his brother's life that no one else knew about it. I was surprised too cause it was a test. So I guess it works :D

they may be true or false, but the fact still remains its just a reading, we should not based our thinking upon it, for entertainment purposes it a worth while experience. If you have a bunch of card at home, would you mind tossing them al together, PM me the first three cards that you will notice on the floor.

I only read card for fun. I only believe it when I get a good news. But when it's not, I tend to ignored it. Because it's a bad luck to trust such bad news that will get to you.

I don't believe in those things because I see no basis in them. I did go to a card reader once just for the hell of it. All of the predictions did not come true or is too general to be specific like example: somebody close to you will die, or something along those lines.

I would not put on my faith of my future to some predictions or card readings. Regardless the religion, we make the choices for our own selves. Our actions today will mold the future we will have. We must also take precautions in our lives as to avoid any negative circumstances from happening. Don't spend money on fortune tellers. Spend it wisely and instead invest it for your future.
