Tarot readings can be achieved through an assortment of tarot decks or divination means. Technically, the cards can be blank. It is a channeling process of information surrounding a question that is determined by fate. Fate is a natural process of one’s course of action if let be on its natural course of flow. Free Will is our ability to change that course, route, or action. Intuition and Instinct are natural abilities to balance Fate with Free Will. Tarot readings don’t usually reveal anything that you don’t already know otherwise you wouldn’t be asking the question that is already on your mind. It is a method for pinpointing the natural intuition and instinct surrounding a question that riddles your mind. The benefit to Divination, is to peek around the corner and see if your actions is in line of what you desire your end result to be – and if you like what you see, you know that you just need to continue with your course of action. If you don’t like what you see, you know you need to change your course and actions. Daily we make decisions that change or affect our intended fates. Divination is a process to assist with results and end actions.
