    You'd be jealous of my crystal ball, it's rather stunning

    The cards are supposed to have different meanings as to which way up they are placed.
    Basically, just as with any "Psychic Reading", it's just the same as any Medicine Show, you play it to tell the client exactly what they want to hear - often by asking 'Open Negative' questions, such as "The name Jane doesn't mean anything to you does it?". If the answer is "No", then the response is "No, I thought not". If the answer is "Yes", then the answer is something like "Yes, I thought so. She's trying to say something...". Then it's up to the client to provide all the information for the 'Psychic'.

    Just as with any Religion, it's a matter of playing to the Gullible with deliberate interpretations of what people want to hear.

    I've seen that being done but what about distance readings? How does the 'reader' get their information with no feedback?

    You never read the Horoscopes in the papers / mags. Pick any one of them at random & you'll find a way to make it suit your own circumstances.

    It was a genuine question that you avoided to answer.

    No I don't read horoscopes in the paper, I don't buy newspapers and I have known for years that horoscopes are generally written by people who are not spiritual. I used to work with someone who earned a good living writing them.

    Re: Are Tarot cards scary?

    I was once subjected to a tarot reading by my then wife and a friend. It predicted the end of my marriage completely accurately. MY life had just about every disaster card you can get.

    Woohoo.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    I think you showed me a photograph of it some while ago and yes, it is stunning
