`s, I understand a reading is an intuitive interpretation as well as the cards layout. So how does a computer do a reading; it seems kind of a roulette wheel spin and what it lands on is what you get. It don`t make sense to me and hoped someone could explain to me how it could be accurate.

Hi Juniperb
Well La Tee Da is the tarot expert so if she reads this post I'm sure she will give her expert opinion.

For me....
About 4 years ago I had my tarot cards read while I was in Scotland. This woman completely "spooked" me. I honestly was in shock for ages from what she told me.........ALL of which has happened. Anyway I rang her about 6 months ago (she sometimes visits London) to see if she could read my cards again as all London readers offer telephone readings only
Anyway when I told her this she said that telephone (so we must include internet readings with this) cannot be accurate as you need to actually sit with the person - for the energy. She said you need to touch the cards.

Anyway like I said that's what she told me and I currently agree with that - purely because she was sooo amazingly accurate when she read my cards years ago.

Anyone else have any thoughts/experiences on this???

well -
I've gotten a few sample readings at tarot.com. I know that preferably I'd want to be with a person face to face but the readings I've gotten I have to say have been exactly what I needed at the moment.

Granted I haven't had a huge in depth reading online. It's mostly been one to three card readings for questions like "What do I need to know for this week?" or "What should I work on today?" I've saved the readings if anyone wants to read them I can post them

The Uni-verse can give us messages in the most ordinary and mundane ways (even computerized Tarot readings) if we truly seek answers.

Thanks Cat & all, I agree that answers come in the most mundane ways...
Yet, I feel as Cat that the personal energy is necessary for an acurate reading.
To be fair, I tried 3 different sites and 2 were almost the same and next to impossable pertaining to my life. A major move in residence ( I already live in heaven & it`s unthinkable) and a major purchase( stated new boat or vehicle) of which neither is feasable. That was in answer to "will I quit smoking in the next 90 days"...
Perhaps I`m approaching this all wrong

Now, this is the 3rd reading & wondered if you can help me interpret it.
Line of life reading
1st card: hanged man 2nd card: moon 3rd card: hermit 4th card: world.
Underneath these 4 cards is a 5th card: lovers.

I tried going thru my bookmarked tarot 101 ( I promise ,la-tee-da, to study hard when time opens up ) and couldn`t fathom the reading.
Thanks a bunch, juniperb

Hi juniperb
I would have to agree with Cat. I mean from time to time I do check online for tarot reading. But if I were looking for an answer I would actually go to my personal tarot reading. For example I just received a tarot reading from a lady in south America where she used to do readings for me what I did is I sent my best friend someone a trust with my DOB to the lady who used to do my reading before. I made sure I knew what time the reading will be done so my best friend and the tarot lady and I are connected. Also this lady does the old spread very large which is quite different from the 3 or 7 cards reading which is mostly done over the phone or internet (and we know each other for a few years). I actually would love to learn how to use the old spread, which I know it is still used in some areas in Europe and South America. I guess I prefer this type of reading because it is personal, but I also like the other type (internet) once in a while for simple questions.

I agree with Cat also; however, I also feel that a person can focus and concentrate (and take it seriously) and be given guidance through an online reading.

Hi Juniperb!

Could I have a go? I don't know what spread that is, so I can't be sure what the position of each card means, but as far as the cards go:

The Hanged Man represents that you need to make a voluntary sacrifice cheerfully, knowing that this sacrifice will give birth to something better and more worthwhile. Hmm...

The Moon represents a time of confusion, not being sure of what you really want to do. This may not be the best time to make a decision. Sort out how you really feel and make your decision only when you know it's sound and that you can see it through.
(This probably reflects the difficulty you're having in deciding to quit once and for all.)

The Hermit is a card of wisdom and introspection. It shows that no matter how hard things may be, you have the inner resolve and wisdom to shine a light for yourself.
(Go girl, you can do it! )

The World represents the achievement of a goal and a time of satisfaction, before you start the journey towards your next achievement. The cycle of life. It represents the completion of one cyle before the start of another.
(You could give up smoking for good!)

The Lovers shows that a choice needs to be made. Wisdom dictates that you choose one option, while your physical desires dictate that you choose the other.

You mentioned the word 'underneath' while explaining the position of this card which leads me to believe that this choice is the underlying force in this whole situation, and if you choose wisely,
you've got the whole 'WORLD' ... in your hands, you;ve got the whole world ... in your hands
you've got the whole world in your hands!

I don't trust the online tarot sites myself. With facade.com, no matter what I ask my reading is always terrible. I think they rig it that way to keep you asking, so more hits for their site.

Thank you all for your insight.

Aquamoon, great reading for me & I Intuitively feel confident your interpretation is on the mark.

Meditating on the Hermit, I`ve realized the smoking has a deeper issue, the "why" I smoke, what void am I trying to fill?

So, based on that insight, I`m seeing a hypnotherapist that works with the soul/subconscious to dig into the cause/need for smoking rather than simply quitting. Cause & effect....
The whole reading rings of success and I`m so grateful for your insight.

juniperb

PS Guess that does mean if the desire is there, a computerized reading is beneficial!!!

Yay, Juniperb!! I am so encouraged by your words, I'm going to practise doing more readings!

Great insight on the Hermit! I think that's a brilliant idea - the hypnotherapy. Root out the cause and there'll be no effect.

Hmm, I agree, if you want answers badly enough, you will get them, no matter where you look.

Good luck with your sessions!

The readings I get from Tarot.com have always aligned with the readings that I do for myself with my cards or that other people have read for me. That doesn't mean of course that it will be that way for everyone.

I agree with Randall I really believe if you want to know something bad enough then the Universe will tell you even if it's from a song verse or computerized Tarot reading.

You have to take it seriously and sincerely seek an answer, though.

Hi Gang....just popping in to say hi!!! I don't agree with you having to touch the cards......I do phone readings and internet readings sometimes......the images still come thru for me. I have also had readings done on tarot.com and the readings have been dead on!!!! Down to seeing the deceitful ways of the person in my question!!! Well, back to my coccoon!!!
I love all of you!!!

Hi Everyone I just happened to come to this particular thread because I was curious about the topic. I am going to add my two cents worth Smile! I beleive you can have your cards read over the phone, and you can get accurate computerized readings. My friend Kim Davies has been reading cards for over 20 years and has been reading mine since 1994-95. She has always been right on the money for me. She does the reading and then she sends you a tape of the reading sometimes I go back and listen to some of the older tapes only to discover that she was very accurate. She has her own website tarotbykim.com and you can check out her readings for yourself they are very detailed. Kim is also teaching the tarot now too. It doesnt cost anything to become a member at this time.I love the Tarot it has always fascinated me and I have my own deck the Morgan Greer.The cards are beautiful and speak for themselves.Love Jade

Great feedback

Aqua, my hypnotherapy went great ( bless the hermit) and I`m smoke free with minimual cravings. The void was rooted out and filled with wholeness of health, love and abundance.

Meaning here, is that your desire does reach out to the computer tarot and aligns for an accurate reading!!!

It was an interesting journey to arrive at my own answer to posted ?? and thank all
for their insight!!!

So are computerised tarot readings like horary readings?
It's all in the timing and synch of you asking the questions?

Hi Juniper,
Only just saw your post. I figured the hypnotherapy was successful though, from some other posts of yours. Also from the fact that you're a toughie who'll accomplish exactly what she set out to do.
