One view of Astrology and Tarot I offer is simultaneity of events and symbols that rise spontaneously. The accomplished Astrologist or Taroist is sensitive to these symbols like a Dowser to water. The other principle here is that of the holographic universe in which the Whole is contained in the part. These are both foundational characteristics of Quantum Physics. Check out What the Bleep Do We Know (film and/or book).
Monte Farber’s Karma Cards from 1988 present you a demonstration of simultaneity, coincidence in its deep sense, and holograms containing the bigger picture. An article at http://www.wicce.com/karmacards.html tells you how to use them. Using them is so simple that you know how immediately, and the best part is you don’t need to know Astrology first.
My concern in this Blog is about Quantum simultaneity, not the cards themselves, but I do want to emphasize their marvelous ability to plumb your psyche. 24 cards divided into Planets, Signs, and Houses, the cards as you pick one from each category or pile give a particular position like Sun in Libra in the 5th House (pictured above). This gives a similar opportunity like Astrology dice:
These dice when rolled regarding a subject give an Astrological position again like Neptune in 12th House Aries shown in my photo. However, a knowledge of what the symbols mean requires an Astrology Counselor. So don’t by them (Amazon for $7) if you don’t plan to study.
As I was saying above, the cards present a method of tuning into your psyche, the world, and the universe, by giving suggestive interps; and the interpretations are for the Physical, Mental, and Spiritual levels but also gear to whether the topic is a Question (red end of cards) or an Outcome (blue end of cards).
Let’s demonstrate: My Question is What is the Outcome on my spiritual growth of writing this article? From the three piles I drew North Node in 10th House Pisces. One Astrological interp I’d give for this position/answer is I’m on the path beneficial to me (North Node) in a spiritual way or for the greater good (Pisces) in my career (10th House). This last part being the career House is significant because the Question has to do with my writing an article re Astrology, which is my life’s work, and of course the Pisces sign is the most appropriate for a positive answer (for which I’m grateful!).
Spiritually speaking (S row on blue end of North Node), the cards says, “There will be” (N Node deals with what’s fulfilling). Added to it is the S of the blue end of the Pisces card, “Spirituality to ultimately experience”…”your destiny” (10th House card).
So my apprehension or curiosity is laid to rest as the Physical and Mental rows continue to speak of success/benefit of this “psychic” knowledge in where I’m going. Phew! I thought I might be doing all this work for nothing!
What we’ve seen in a little show of what’s down the rabbit hole of the Unconscious oneness that makes my drawing a card, or looking at a Chart’s symbols answer Questions or give Outcomes. Very psychological actually. “It’s all in the mind.” [Not fully, because the mind is outside Spirit, but that’s another Blog….]
