random question of the day... [Aug. 29th, 2008|01:13 pm]

Do you consider forms of divination like tarot cards to be useful? Or do you think they are a waste of time?

I wonder if acknowledging something like fate is really that Satanic.

Personally I think it's just another way to "objectively enter a subjective state" as LaVey might have said.

I do, they are like unlocking potencials of your brain to help the subconcious speak through symbols.
I believe that a great tenet of Satanism is using things to your advantage to get the advantage. Cards I see are another way to do so. So by that standard I agree with you and the statement where you quoted La Vey.
I guess in a way the cards are telling us of possbilitys if we choose our own fate. We can ignore the suggestions if we so choose! :)

i personally feel they are a crock of shit, but your mileage may vary.

might as well read the inside of apple pie for signs and portends, if all your looking for is teh placebo effect to go into 'sensitive mode'

Maybe humans have a way of 'sensing' patterns that most people can't see, or don't notice.

Still, basic rules apply: If it works, for fuck's sake, do it.

all "magic" is just a focus to open your mind to other things. tarot cars, wands, ritual in general. take you mind somewhere else "objectively enter into a subjective state" where you can see the future, make others suffer, lose weight, what is your desire.

personally, all new age mumbo-jumbo leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but if it works for you. more power to you.

im now going to bed, after my twins birthday party, im rather tired.

hail thyself.

Am I the only one who uses both Tarot and Runes not only for readings (it's not like 'fortune telling', it's more like psychological work in PRESENT) but also for meditation and rituals? And yes, I DO accept all the things you may shamefully call "mystical shit".
