Well its something like that, in my opinion. I apologize to the many non-fortune tellers here. It's a shame more people don't use the cards to tell fortunes because they're missing the awe-inspiring magic Tarot holds.

I'm not going to throw the baby out with the bath water, though. The dedicated effort and inspiration of card creators is tremendously appreciated. Helping to add depth to the cards and working hard to write the books after doing all their research has given us some beautiful, mystical and awesome tools to use no matter how readers decide to use them.

I don't intend to insult anyone but I suppose I may have. I do think that everyone who uses the cards should commit themselves to telling fortunes for six months. Then if the magic hasn't happened...well, the magic WILL happen.

I love this forum and its members and I don't aim this at any one person.

Is it gonna hurt when the bullets hit? Please finish me off quickly and humanely.
OK. Bang bang! Gotcha, or did I miss? I've decided to revisit my Buckland Romani & actually study it for once, which I started yesterday, then I saw your post. I'm committted. Gee, isn't that what 'they' used tarot for, predominantly? Fortune telling? Sure, if you see Polyanna, fine. But life isn't just that. Stuff happens & it's not always roses. I'd still have a hard time telling a sitter about death though, unless I thought there was something to be altered to prevent it. You didn't say anything wrong! I may not do it for 6 months, but maybe so.
