- Does it exist?
How wonderful! I will get rich and
can stop working!
Divination, unfortunately, is not that simple...
But then, what is the use of reading the cards?
After all, is it true or not what they tell?
We do not have the possibility to escape being responsible for
ourselves. Sad, but true.
The question above cited, formulated in a nobler way, would be
the question until which point life in general follows an authoritarian
and autonomous mechanism, which is fatalistic of the point of view of
the individuals. Depending on that explanation or vision of our existence,
there are subsequently different concepts in relation to what we call
There are the two extremes of idealism or materialism, and in
between there are hundreds of beliefs, philosophies, theories and also
desires. The idealism claims conscience as a base of the existence,
of the being. The materialism defines the conscience as an effect of
There is no right or wrong in that, everything is to be proven.
I personally think that life does not follow any theory of any
human being, but that all theories explain some parts and aspects of
the world, but never all of it. I believe that to understand life we
in fact will have to die. Anyway, while that is not the case, we will
only have some fascinating mosaic pieces, multicoloured and in part
logical to play with and to construct whatever we consider able to make
our existence more understandable and also easier.
So, to come back to the subject of the fatalistic future or not,
I decided to believe the following:
The difference between the past, the present and the future is
only in our perspective.
The past from our point of view seems to be static, fixed and
The present is a great mystery that moves at highest speed and
that gets more mysterious the more we try to understand it.
The future then is the great vacuum, the all-that-could-be and
Future is the unknown potential of our lives, evolving itself
constantly. Being that, it is a dynamic form, in contrast of the past.
The central question then would be of what, which sources, the
evolution of the future nourishes itself. I think that there are three
sources that make the great river of future:
Our present acts, independent and individual, that we decide
to make consciously.
Our personal Karma.
Our collective Karma of which we are only a small part.
(I leave aside the planetary and cosmic Karma, that would be the fourth
and fifth source)
The third source is absolutely beyond our reach and the more
we would try, we would never achieve to change its route or its quality.
The power of this source in fact is fatalistic for us.
The second source of personal Karma being much stronger than
us, even though sometimes we manage to influence it. Difficult, but
The first one then, is the one that interests more, because this
we can really influence.
It is possible to see in the cards the actual force that is behind
certain future effects or currents.
The cards can tell us how and where our present will turn into
So very rarely the forces in our life are ones of the collective
Karma. (If this is the case then we, as card readers, will have to be
psychologists in the way of telling the client, in the case of a disagreeable
future, of course.)
Normally the majority of the information concerning the future
which we obtain through the cards is a mixture of personal Karma and
the effects of the present acts. This is not fatalistic.
Trends, more or less strong, are shown, but mostly they are not
inevitable. Almost always we can (shall I say we could?) improve or
make worse what it is coming.
What we see normally in the cards is what will come to existence
if we continue being what and how we are. With this, wanting to change
our future, we will have to change ourselves.
do not live our life. Simply they can help us to live it, give advice,
hints, suggestions, warnings or affirmation; indeed nothing less or
more than a very good friend can do, who knows us better than we ourselves
We have with the cards an open window to the panorama of our
Who wants to stay seated can do that, but he will never know
what it is like to be the main actor in his own film. Tarot, far of
being the script of our life, is much more the explanation of its symbols
And we can be good or bad actors.
But even the worst actor gets more than the spectator.
