What I do believe is that the universe is full-to-overflowing of intelligence, and that everything in the universe is connected. Science is still a little wary of calling the universe intelligent – although it seems to be able to do lots of stuff that scientists can’t explain, but accepts that everything in the universe does seem to be connected.
If everything in the universe is connected, and the universe is full of intelligence, how can the Tarot NOT work?
The Swiss psychologist, Carl G Jung, had a name for the mechanism. He called it “synchronicity.” He defined synchronicity as occurring when an apparent coincidence can be shown to have meaning.
Here, the coincidence is the drawing of a selection of Tarot cards together with an apparently unconnected question or situation. The two situations are causally apparently unrelated, yet meaning is present.
So, no, I don’t need to be psychic. I need to know enough about the cards to weave a story from them that illuminates an aspect of the question or situation. And there will be one.
If you believe in God of course, as Jung did (and I do), then, again, how can the Tarot not work?
What the questioner is asking, is that the universe so arranges itself, or that God so allows the universe to arrange, that the cards answer your question.
So, let it be a question that you couldn’t find answered any “normal” way, be sincere, and give the answer a lot of thought.
