I do not believe in fate or destiny in the sense that the future is predetermined. However, we are creatures of habit, influenced by our personal & cultural histories and our biology; with varying levels of self-awareness. So can we really exercise ‘free will‘?
Keeping with the nautical theme of the quote pictured here; waves tend to rush to the shore but break-walls and winds (i.e. forces seen and unseen) may change the direction or speed of those waves. We, and existence in this reality, are complex.
I have owned and used Tarot (and other ‘divination decks’) for almost 40 years. I’ve also studied astrology and keep a small number of crystals around my work space. At their best, so-called ‘divination tools’ (whether cards, crystals, astrology, numerology, runes or any other method) help us see what lies beneath the surface. Perhaps they help us tap into Jung’s collective unconscious collection of archetypes and information. Or maybe Dolly Parton had it right in her song ‘These Old Bones‘ that the magic is inside each of us. I have a number of pages here with more information and background on Tarot cards, how I do my readings, and even suggested decks and books should you decide to do it yourself.
