Charts, lines, visions—what do they predict? Can we use them to look into the future, shape it as we will or are we merely acting out a script written by somebody else? Enter the world of myriad predictive sciences
On the cards
Tarot has 22 major cards and 56 minor cards. Major ones speak of the 'why' of things and minor ones tell you what is happening. Familiarize yourself with the cards. Concentrate on the question and shuffle the cards. "The question should be simply framed," advises Guneeta Dhingra a tarot reader. There are various layouts but Guneeta prefers the seven-card layout.
Question: Am I likely to get a satisfactory job in the next six months?
First Card: Represents the situation from the last 18 months up to the present moment. Here a page of swords depicts dreams but not enough action.
Second Card: Present situation. An eight of pentacles signifies commitment to the present situation.
Third Card: Next six months. A ten of cups, reversed, stands for the lesson in the previous card not having been learnt. In a work situation, it indicates a harmonious group in the past but in a competitive mood now.
Fourth Card: Part of the answer. Eight of wands here indicates a positive response.
Fifth Card: Energy surrounding the questioner. King of cups reversed indicates discipline can bring rewards.
Sixth Card: Hopes and fears. A major card. Temperance indicates the need to reacquaint yourself with your purpose before you embark on any course of action. Seventh Card: The outcome. The emperor signifies that a disciplined approach will lead to success.
