Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Is it history stories behind tarot cards?

Is each tarot cards based on true story? Is it history? Or is it fiction? like for an example, ‘The Hang Man’ is about the man hanging up side down for 9 days without eating, There he stays for nine days intent on finding his spiritual self.

Answer by PaulCyp
It is 100% superstition.

Answer by E.H.
It’s all about symbolism, interpretation, and intuition. Each card has an “original meaning”, however tarot cards are like artwork. It’s whatever YOU get out of them. To one person The Hanged Man could represent unlearned lessons, to another it could be interpreted as something completely different. Each card when interpreted individually are stringed together to form a story (in whichever spread the cards have been dealt).

Personally, when I look at the The Hanged Man card I do (indeed) see a person who has made mistakes but has yet to learn from them. The fact that he’s being hung denotes punishment. His face is depicted with a smirk, as if he’s unfazed by his punishment. Hence, he hasn’t learned anything. Kind of like a little kid cracking up while sitting in time out.

I remember taking an Art Interpretation class in college and hating it. I have no idea why I fell in love with Tarot cards when it’s much of the same thing. Whether or not someone believes in them, there are thousands of different tarot cards out there that can be admired and interpreted just for the artwork and symbolism in each of them.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Is life actually like a novel that is loaded with omens, symbols, allusions and foreshadowing?

Authors put that stuff in I suppose to make their novels more interesting. But what if they put it in because they’re aware of that stuff existing, while most people aren’t aware of it, and all we need to do is look around to see that the future is revealing itself all the time like a deck of tarot cards?

Answer by Cuervo
only if you know what letters and words are .. I suppose.. but for those who dont… it is still revealing itself however!!

Answer by Phadria
in books, symbolism is just another method of telling the story; like telling the audience a characters thoughts.
which is notoriously hard to do outside of fiction.

but certain things done in reality can be symbolic; returning a exes housekey or such like.
but things are only as important as the meaning we attach to them.
So, the more you go looking for meaning, the more of it you’ll think you see.
In reality, single magpies a cock crow in the afternoon or the clasp on a necklace coming to the front have no more meaning than rain in summer.

Answer by veganjackson
Everything that we go through can be seen as a learning experience. The world is loaded with meaning, but only once you come to interpret it. All stories are written with the benefit of being planned out – but in real life we sometimes miss things that could be clues. A more full awareness means you can take notice of the detail around you and try to work out what it means – but you won’t always be correct!

Life is made up of two people…. those who believe in signs and miracles and those who believe that things just happen.

I believe the first one….. nothing happens by accident…. there are no coincidences in life.

Answer by loryntoo
Foreshadowing, yes. It’s often called intuition. You’ve heard the expression “my mom has eyes in the back of her head.” Well, that is a survival trait. The women who could anticipate harm to their children had more children survive. They passed on their genes. This is also why more women can get flashes of the future than men. It’s linked to intuition.

Why don’t more men have intuition? It was not a desirable trait. The men who had it often didn’t go into the military and, if they did, they rarely got themselves into heroic situations because they could guess what was going to happen before it happened. As a result, they were less desirable mates and had either no children or very few.

Hi! I am Kathy, a clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient psychic, as well as a fully-conscious medium. I do not use tools, so if you are looking for tarot, astrology or anything like that, sorry that’s not me!.

I have been psychic since childhood, tracing my abilities back several generations, through my mother and grandmother on my mom’s Irish side,and to at least my grandmother on my dad’s Polish side. We all get our gifts from God, and no other place.

The first time I really remember using my abilities was when I was about 10- we were lost on a trip to visit relatives who had bought a new house and farm in a different state. I was able to navigate our way to the relative’s house, and once there knew where everything was, even down to the silverware drawer! Deja vu, indeed!
