How Far Into The Future Can Tarot Predict

Most clients who want readings want to know “when” a certain event will occur. Customers could ask when they will be married or when they will get that promotion, for instance.

Helping the clients formulate their inquiry at this time makes sense. In this regard, in my honest view, the tarot cannot tell you when; it can only direct you as to how. Only if you offer the cards the guiding framework of a chronology will the “when” part be highlighted. I work with the clients to rephrase the question and ask whether something will occur within the next six months rather than asking when. I also advise my clients to consult a legitimate astrologer if they want to know the “when” factor. However, based on what little I know about astrology, they are also unable to be precise with the “when” part. They can forecast when an ideal opportunity will arise, allowing you to take the required steps to make it happen.

Nothing can manifest without any action, no matter where one looks for guidance. Tarot cards might help you with the action part.

Therefore, we return to the original query, “How far into the future can the Tarot cards see?”

The explanation is quite simple. The tarot is more “in the now.” Readings allow us to connect with the energies of the present, which then guide us into the future by revealing the threads of the previous events that have shaped this present. The present heavily influences this future. Naturally, current events will influence how future events will play out. Because of this, Tarot cannot make any precise long-term forecasts.

As such, the forecasts made using tarot cards may be applicable for the coming few months or up to the next six months. The cards will be able to provide us longer-term advice if we want them to. However, they will merely present the story’s highlights. They are unable to share the whole context of the narrative. That’s fine if the client is content with it. Otherwise, however, only a short-term forecast or recommendation may be made that is more specific and accurate.

Tarot cards can be used for how long?

The origin of playing cards is unknown, although they initially arrived in Europe in the late 14th century. The earliest records, mostly of card games being outlawed, are from Berne in 1367, and they appear to have spread throughout all of Europe quite quickly. Little is known about the design and quantity of these cards; the only significant information is found in a text written in Freiburg im Breisgau in 1377 by John of Rheinfelden, who, in addition to other versions, describes the basic pack as consisting of the four still-in-use suits of 13 cards, with the courts typically being the King, Ober, and Unter (“marshals”), although Dames and Queens were already well-known by that time.

The suits of Batons or Clubs, Coins, Swords, and Cups were one of the earliest card patterns to emerge. Both modern (occult) tarot divination cards, which first emerged in the late 18th century, and traditional Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese playing card decks continue to use these suits.

Between 1440 and 1450, in Milan, Ferrara, Florence, and Bologna, additional trump cards with allegorical pictures were added to the conventional four-suit pack, resulting in the first known tarot decks. The additional cards, known simply as trionfi, later became known as “trumps” in English. These new decks were known as carte da trionfi, triumph cards, and trionfi. The first recorded account of trionfi can be discovered in a 1440 Florence court document referring to the transfer of two decks to Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta.

The about 15 Visconti-Sforza tarot decks that were painted in the middle of the 15th century for the rulers of the Duchy of Milan are the oldest surviving decks of tarot cards. Martiano da Tortona likely wrote about a missing tarot-like pack that Duke Filippo Maria Visconti had ordered between 1418 and 1425 because the painter he describes, Michelino da Besozzo, left for Milan in 1418 and Martiano himself passed away in 1425. He spoke of a deck of 60 cards, 16 of which featured Roman gods, and four different bird suits. The sixteen cards were referred to as “trumps” because Jacopo Antonio Marcello said that the now-deceased duke had created a new and magnificent category of triumphs in 1449. The Sola-Busca and Boiardo-Viti decks from the 1490s are two other early decks that also had classical themes.

A larger deck known as Minchiate was utilized in Florence. Along with classic tarot imagery, this 97-card deck also features astrological signs and the elements.

No routine condemnations of tarot were discovered during its early history, despite a Dominican priest railing against the evil inherent in cards (mostly because of their usage in gambling) in a sermon from the 15th century.

The initial decks of tarot cards are said to have been few in number because they were all hand-painted. The printing press was the first tool that made mass production of playing cards feasible. During the Italian Wars, tarot began to spread outside of Italy, first to France and then to Switzerland. The Tarot of Marseilles, which has Milanese origins, was the most widely used tarot deck in these two nations.

Should I consult my tarot cards daily?

Every day, practice. Although some people may find it easy to interpret tarot cards, as with anything you learn, practice makes perfect. Kelly Sarber, a psychic medium and intuitive based in California, told INSIDER that daily practice is just as crucial as picking the best deck.

Questions you don’t really want answered

Even though it might seem apparent, it’s advisable to refrain from asking the tarot cards questions that you aren’t prepared to hear the answers to. That’s because answers to these questions can reveal information you’re just not quite ready to hear.

“Tarot can definitely come off as offensive if you’re not willing to hear the truth or consider an opposing point of view. Tarot reading Nicole Fortunaso

According to tarot reader and life coach Nicole Fortunaso, “tarot may truly come out as offensive if you are not willing to hear the truth of the problem or look at an alternate viewpoint.” She advises considering why you’re responding the way you are in order to reflect on the best way to address the underlying cause if you ask the question and are unsatisfied with the response.

What in tarot is the near future?

To the right of the mini-cross is the near future.

The card in this position represents something that is about to materialize. The outcome could be determined by an event, a difficulty that must be conquered, or a person, depending on the card.

It’s crucial to examine both this card and the final one (in a later lesson) to see exactly what might have an impact on the outcome if anything lands in this position.

This card and the result will determine whether that effect is permanent, transitory, or modifying.

If the immediate future and final outcome are both Major Arcana, this may indicate a succession of life-changing events for the inquirer.

However, if the immediate future is a Major and the result is a Minor, that may point to a significant change that is being integrated.

A negative card, like the Eight of Swords, followed by a positive card, like the Sun, in the near future may suggest the inquirer must go through a trying time, but everything will be OK in the end.

If those cards were reversed, we might observe a joyful circumstance that ends up being constricting.

In the near future, court cards may show the appearance of a person who could be significant to the querent’s future.

Pay attention to the immediate future since it contains details about things that might happen or people who might have an impact on the final result.

Let’s add some cards to the sample reading we used in the previous lesson.

The questioner has experienced a life-changing event, perhaps a divorce, according to the previous cards.

They have been recovering and are now taking control of the situation again. The Sun indicates that the questioner may have happiness in the future. And the King of Pentacles’ presence indicates that it might be coming from someone who embodies the traits of the King of Pentaclescalm, grounded, and trustworthy. A new associate? Or perhaps a handmaiden with sporadic influence? To find out, you’ll need to look at the result in the end.

The Ace of Pentacles is the next card we’ll try:

This card represents a rebirth to me because it comes after the Sun.

a brand new beginning. This combination might indicate someone who unexpectedly quit an unsatisfactory employment to determine what they really wanted to do with their lives if the questioner was asking about their career. They may find their actual interest and start a career they are passionate about, according to the Sun and Ace of Wands.

What tarot card has the most influence?

The Fool is typically seen as a card from the Major Arcana when performing a tarot reading. Contrary to popular belief, the Fool does not fall under either category in tarot card games. Instead, the Fool serves a function that is distinct from both the simple suit cards and the trump cards. As a result, the Fool has no number assigned to it in the majority of tarot decks that were initially created for playing games. Although Waite assigns the Fool the number 0, in his book, the Fool is discussed between Judgment (number 20) and The World (number 21). The Tarocco Piemontese is the only traditional game deck that numbers the Fool 0. Since the 1930s, the corner index for the Fool in Tarot Nouveau decks has frequently been a black inverted mullet. The Fool is one of the most expensive cards in practically all tarot games.

Why can’t I read the tarot by myself?

It’s normal to be a little clumsy when you first start practicing the tarot. Tarot study is similar to learning a new languageit takes time to become proficient. But what happens if you no longer require the booklet and have intimate familiarity with the deck? Are you able to read yourself? No, except in a few rare cases. Simply put, it’s a horrible idea.

You see, the majority of us turn to astrology or tarot when we’re looking for clarity amid a period of ambiguity. Tarot card interpretation is subject to our consciousness, as opposed to astrology, which is extraordinarily technical. Working with your personal interpretation of the cards, you are not constrained by short- and long-term cycles like the planets’ orbits. It might be tricky to go beyond your current circumstances while utilizing the tarot to better understand a trying scenario. Even if all the cards are spread out in front of you, putting them together requires such a broad perspective that it is all but impossible to fully understand the meaning of each card. Basically, any biases you already have will always be reflected in your tarot reading!

You *Just* Had a Tarot Reading

Unless the reading is about a completely new and specific subject, I suggest waiting at least three months between professional tarot readings. Before returning to the cards, let things develop and alter.

You Want a Redo

I frequently observe people attempting to “chase the right answer.” People will visit several tarot readers or ask the same question repeatedly to the same tarot reading until they receive the response they desire (which, by the law of averages, does happen eventually). Kind of useless, this!

Your Question Is About Someone Else

Tarot readings are not the solution if your entire line of inquiry is about another person’s thoughts and actions (such as what your ex is up to). Tarot is meant to help you gain understanding of *yourself,* not other people. (A better option would be to reconsider and rephrase your query as if you were looking for help on how to move past your split.)

You’re Looking for Medical Advice

Simply said, neither physical nor mental health concerns can be diagnosed or treated using the cards. Some things are better left in the hands of medical specialists rather than tarot readers!

Can I get a tarot card?

If you’ve never pulled a single card from the tarot to answer a question or describe a scenario, it involves doing so intuitively. This simple tarot 101 method only needs a little bit of self-analysis (particularly if you’re pulling for yourself) and some research if you’re still studying the card meanings. And according to astrologer and tarot card reader Maria Sofia Marmanides, you don’t always need to use a whole spread and can use a one-card tarot pull for queries other than yes-or-no ones.

“One card draws can give you as much insight and help you hone your intuitive reading abilities.” Maria Sofia Marmanides is a tarot reader.

One card pull can give you as much clarity and help you hone your intuitive reading abilities, according to Marmanides. “Consider the single card as describing the entirety of the circumstancepast, present, and futureto serve as a reminder that the answer is frequently concealed inside the issue. Any card you draw should give you the confidence to either use that energy to advance or to leave it behind.”

How do you make a love tarot request?

If you’re looking for information regarding your love life, a tarot card reading can be entertaining and illuminating. If you’re looking for some direction in the difficult and erratic process of finding love, perhaps it’s time to consult the cards.

It’s crucial to understand the proper procedure for posing queries about love to the tarot cards. The best place to begin is by asking open-ended questions. You’ll probably have an open-ended inquiry right away if you begin with Why, Where, Which, What, or How.

You’ll receive a more insightful and practical reading from the cards if you keep your inquiries open-ended. Most people also suggest against using the yes/no question type of inquiry. Tarot is not intended to provide such precise answers. Instead, you want practical knowledge and spiritual direction that will actually enable you to take command of your life.

When given the chance, a lot of people inquire about the cards’ romantic lives. It’s a popular reading to get, and in addition to obtaining some insight into where your romantic relationship is going, you might also get some guidance on how to move forward. To get you started, consider the following queries.

What parts of myself do I need to work on in order to have a balanced relationship?

It’s a cliched piece of love advice. You must first love yourself in order to love another person. Sometimes we need to work on a small amount of self-improvement before we are ready for love, but that may be a difficult process in and of itself. It can be challenging to know where to start. The cards might be able to point out the aspects of you that want some tender loving care in order to be prepared for a balanced, healthy relationship.

What is the reason that I am blocking myself from new love entering my life?

Sometimes you think you’ve found the right person, but there’s still something lacking. This can be a result of your inner self blocking new love from entering. Why do we do this, then? There isn’t a simple solution, and it differs for everyone. However, if you consult the cards, they might be able to shed some light on why you’re so reluctant to open the door.

What is the most important lesson I need to learn from my break-up?

The majority of us have had a breakup. We are also aware of their potential mess. When you split up with someone, it may seem like the only thing you’ve learnt is how much you loved them and how sad you are that they’re no longer in your life. But every relationship can teach us somethinggood or badand the cards can be useful if you’re having problems figuring out what that lesson is.

What would be a good type of date to go on with my crush?

One of the most difficult aspects of dating is deciding what to do on a first date. There are a lot of choices. minigolf, a stroll across the park, or the traditional dinner and movie. However, there might be a particular kind of date that would be advantageous for both you and your prospective spouse in ways that only the cards might reveal.

What are my strengths when it comes to relationships?

As humans, it can be simple to focus on our flaws and engage in self-criticism. But recognizing what you offer to the table is a crucial component of being a good partner. Perhaps you have excellent communication skills or are sensitive to your partner’s feelings. It can be quite beneficial to your love life to recognize this strength so that you can use it as a reminder to yourself when you doubt your abilities.

What does the universe want me to know about my love life?

Asking more general questions might occasionally be beneficial because you can receive responses you weren’t looking for. The cards might assist you determine if there is something specific that the universe wants you to know about your romantic life.

What is next for my love life?

Most likely, when given the chance, we would all like to pose this question. It might be alluring to anticipate what lies ahead and how much longer you will have to wait, whether you recently ended a relationship or have been single for a while and are ready for love. The cards will undoubtedly assist you if they can provide an answer to this query.

What new activities/hobbies might lead me to my next love interest?

Taking up new hobbies can be beneficial for many reasons, but one of them may be that you’ll possibly meet someone new. Maybe the cards might give you some guidance on what to attempt that might make you fall in love if you’re feeling like you want to try something new, like a cooking or painting class.

Why do I keep holding onto this relationship/crush?

Whether we are in a committed relationship or just have a crush on someone, it can be very difficult to let go of our love interests. No matter how much you might want to, if you’re having trouble letting go, it might be time to consult your cards for some guidance. The solution should enable you to comprehend why you’re clinging on so tightly and what you can do to start letting go.

You won’t get along with everyoneif you did, falling in love would be much simpler. However, if you discover that incompatibility is a reoccurring issue in your romantic relationships, there may be a certain personality type you need to steer clear of. To spare yourself some time in the future, ask the cards for advice on the personality types you should steer clear of.

Where is this relationship headed?

Asking the cards may be a little less intimidating than asking your partner this question, which most people fear doing. Getting some sound advice for the future is always appreciated, whether you’re having trouble deciding if the relationship is intended to last or you badly want it to.

What are the blockages in my relationship?

Every couple experiences times of strain and uncertainty since relationships aren’t meant to be effortless all the time. But if you think the relationship is intended to stay and you don’t want to give up, it might be time to put some effort into it and identify any obstacles that are keeping your connection from thriving.

How can I become more confident about finding love?

Finding love and going on dates might be terrifying. You can find yourself ghosting someone because you’re worried they don’t like you or canceling dates because you’re too frightened. The cards might be able to assist you in bringing out a little bit of confidence to give you the push you need to move forward.

How can I better support my partner?

Relationships are a two-way street, and many of us have experienced what it’s like when your partner isn’t lending you the support you need. It’s crucial to be aware of this, and you should consult the cards if you feel that you haven’t been helping your spouse adequately or in the appropriate ways.
