Is there any science behind how a Tarot Reading can predict the future?

Science of course is now catching up on how a Tarot reading can predict the future. I feel that quantum physics has also given and is providing many “clues”. Dr. David Hawkins has done some interesting experiments and has some interesting insights into energy pull patterns.

Currently, the main ideology used to explain them is synchronicity.

Where does the idealism of synchronicity come from?

Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung. He is considered the founder of analytical psychology. He lectured at many leading universities including Yale. Although he was a psychiatrist, much of his life’s work was devoted to understanding synchronicity, astrology, tarot, and alchemy.

What is synchronicity?

The synchronicity theory can be summarized as “co-incidence”; that is, two events that come together in a significant way, outside the realm of “chance”. Jung’s experiments with synchronicity were carried out at the CG Jung Institute in Zurich.

Can you give some real life examples of synchronicity?

Even before a client comes for a tarot reading, the client will get synchronicity experiences. Clients who have love challenges, for example, will get “signals” from their lover all over the place.

They may go to a store and listen to a song that they associated with their lover. They will see the kind of car their lover drives everywhere. Many times they do not know how to interpret the chronic events they are receiving and that is what really drives them to go to a tarot reading.

I was once with a client, who was doing spiritual work to heal his lover from the fear of letting people near him, he was very frustrated because it didn’t seem to be working. We were in the car together driving to a conference I was facilitating and he blurted out in a frustrated tone, “DJ, when is this magic going to work?”

Just then a van passed by with the words “Magical Works” painted largely on the side.

The work he was doing worked out in no time and they were happily reunited.

How does synchronicity work in a Tarot Reading?

I like to think of synchronicity in the same way as dream interpretation. In a dream, you will often get symbolism that you have to interpret. To understand the meaning of the dream, you interpret the symbols based on what those symbols mean to you in your life experience. If you love cats and you have a dream about cats, it is going to be a very different interpretation/meaning then another person who has the same dream about cats who is afraid of cats.

In a tarot reading, the tarot reader spreads out the cards. The Tarot Reader is intellectually trained in how to interpret symbolism and/or has psychic abilities that draw them to certain symbols on the cards that relate to their situation. You see that the higher power, the collective unconscious or divine intelligence speaks the language of symbols.
