When will my finances improve? When will I meet my soul-mate? When will I get a better job? When will I know my life-purpose?
These are the questions many people, including myself, ask when they approach the Tarot cards. Everyone wants to know when!
But can our Tarot cards even give us this kind of information?
Yes and No. Let me explain…
Because the future is not set in stone, determining when something will happen is tricky. We create our lives and the world around us by our thoughts, feelings and actions which gives each of us an immense amount of power!
Sometimes we get scared of our own creative power and revert to the belief that the future is already pre-determined and we have no real effect on what happens.
When we take this view, we get to absolve all responsibility for our lives. Life just becomes this thing that happens to us – and our only real power is in knowing when certain things will occur, so we can either relax or plan ahead.
I firmly believe that the idea of a pre-determined destiny is a load of crap!
Therefore, I do not believe the Tarot is a tool that can be used to accurately predict the timing of events (I know many readers will disagree with me here), but rather a tool to help you understand how you can manifest what you desire.
If you want to know when you will meet the right romantic partner, a Tarot reading can suggest how to meet this person and what could possibly be standing in your way. However, the reading probably won’t reveal the the month or day that you will find true love.
Let me show you what this theory looks like in action:
These are the Tarot cards that came up when I asked for insight into when I would find the right house to buy.
I think most of us have asked our Tarot cards when something will happen, only to get a confusing answer. But here is a little secret:
If you just slightly change the wording of your question, you can gain a wealth of clarity and insight!
Instead of asking when will _______ happen?
what do I need to do in order to make _______ happen?
how can I manifest ________ more quickly?
So going back to the Tarot cards above, If I were to ask how can I find the right home quickly and easily? The Six of Rods would suggest that I focus on moving forward and visualize success, while the Ace of Wands encourages me to prepare for a new beginning. The Two of Cups emphasizes the importance of keeping my relationship strong and being on the same page with my partner when it comes to home-hunting.
So now I have a wealth of helpful information at my fingertips! The Tarot is wonderful for showing us the steps on our path toward a particular event of goal, but not so great at providing specific time-frames of when that event/goal will materialize.
However, there are some exceptions…
♥ Aces almost always suggest that positive change will happen very soon.
♥ Notice if the cards suggest a particular season. For example, Nine of Pentacles seems very summery, as does the Three of Cups. This can suggest that what you are asking about will likely come to pass during the Summer months.
♥ The number on the card can also indicate the number of days, weeks or months that will pass before something occurs. This is especially true if you get more than one card with the same number on it.
Now its your turn! I want you to ask your Tarot cards about the timing of something, using the suggested questions above and share your insights in the comments below. How did re-phrasing your question help you get deeper understanding?
