Question Communication with Spirits by Tarot

Sorry if this question has been posted or if this sounds like adumb question.

Is there any way spirits can talk to us through tarot? Like if I want to know about a specific thing and want to ask a person in my life who has passed away a question is it possible to use tarot? or one can only use a pendulum or an Puija board...?

Thanks a million

I don't know, I've never tried it.. I have tried the ouija though, and as long as you use the right protection, don't use it alone, etc. then its really good.
I think if you tried to contact relatives through tarot, you would get an answer to your question but the normal way- from the cards or w/e- rather than your relative. Also, even if you did get a relative through cards, how would you tell?

"You know, I've always wanted to be famous, just so someone would randomely quote me. I've always wondered where those quotes came from. As a famous person, do you just write a bunch of one-liners and mail them off?"

I communicate with my spirit guide, Melody, using my Tarot Cards.

I asked her once if I could talk to certain specific people, and was told that then was not a good time... I must admit, I didn't ask if I could talk to just any spirit. But I assume that IF that person or spirit you wanted to talk to weren't otherwise occupied, that certainly you could.

For example... if at this particular moment the spriit you wanted to speak with was busy in another life and is currently a baby, well, then, I doubt you could speak to them, they're busy... but if they're in transition or have already moved up... well, then I don't see why not.

Dunno if that makes any sense to anyone but me, though.

Stop thinking and start feeling.

I use my tarot quite frequently to communicate with those that have passed on.

I guess I could just tell you what I do. I mostly do these readings at night when everything is still. I don't have a reason for that I just prefer the night time. Then I light candles or turn down the lights. Sometimes I do a spell but not all the time.

Before I am ready to begin, I ask for the spirit by name and invite them to sit with me. I also always have an empty chair nearby. Again, there is no reason for this as they usually don't sit down.

I will only read for people that are tied to me or the person I'm reading for. Someone they knew, not just some random person or celebrity. I don't see anything wrong with doing that, I just prefer not to.

Usually I get images or phrases that come into my head, which is how I know I'm tied to the right person. For instance, say I get an image of a dance hall and my sitter confirms the deceased was a dancer. Little things like that come through, with much practice! I also (sometimes) am able to see the person and describe them in detail.

But also, I've found that if it too soon or too far from their date of passing it is harder to keep the connection. But I have had success with a large variety of time frames.

My advice to you is practice, work up a spread before you begin and just keep on at it.

You can start with this spread here. But I changed the first question to, "What is it like where you are right now?" I also would try to stay away from yes or no questions with the cards, you could always use a pendulum for that too.

I hope that helped. Good luck!

I have never tried it, but I have seen some interesting threads here that say that it is indeed possible.

I believe so. I believe my answers in my readings come from my angels or spirit guides anyway. And that those who have been close to us in life, are always close to us. Just ask the person for help. It's as simple as that. Say "Uncle Joe (or whatever you habitually call them) I need your help/advice, would you please answer this question for me..."

Then tell them the question and do your reading. The answer you get should be guided by them (they will ensure the right card comes up and help you understand it so that you see their intended meaning). It is my belief that if you call them they will hear you and if it's someone you had/have a close contact with of course they will want to help.

As an aside I know I accidentally contacted my bf's mother who had passed on in a Tarot meditation once. I was not looking to contact her, but she said it was her...and had some advice for me that prooved accurate. So I am sure that those who have passed on can contact us through the cards.

My late wife began channeling using the Ouija board. Her guides were able to speak through her and carry on in depth conversations. They advocated Tarot and the Ouija Board to start off. I do not recall the complete explanation other than they utilized the symbolism. They also advocated breaking away from them at a stage and working towards independently connecting with higher levels. The cards or Ouija become a restriction and distraction. I was able to discuss a wide variety of topics asking relevant questions as they developed. This provided endless opportunities to clarify and investigate the implications of each revelation. I acquired the experience and evidence removing any doubt as to what I was dealing with. People can connect with guides, some deceased people and angels using Tarot.

Hi Jrr,

I also regularly communicate to spirits through the tarot. I have nothing to add to what is above as far as communication but did want to point out the Quest Tarot. I was excited about it because it has cards with letters etc that can be used like a Ouija Board. You may want to check it out. I got mine and have not had time to work with it yet but the concept seems great. :o)

It's an Itsy Bitsy World,
