Are there any other tarot readers here? If so, how to you find the relationship between tarot and Jediism? Do you ever use them directly in conjunction with one another?

Today, I will do my best. My best is all that I can do. And sometimes, my best will surprise me.

I have some experience with Tarot, but it's never really been my forte. ^_^U

I rarely engage in divination, and when I do, I favor astragalomancy (using dice). I think of divination as inviting The Force to tell you what you need to know, the rest is figuring out what that is which comes down to asking the right questions.

more frequently I incorporate hand-dowsing in my meditation, particularly if I can determine there's some "divine inspiration" to be had, and it's relatively simple. I don't get into more complex methods if I don't have to.

I am still only just learning Jediism, however I have had my first Tarot deck for nearly half a year now.

I however do think that the way they would interwine is in the letting the Force answer your question through the cards.

Sometimes, I will so a single card draw just to see what will be said, simply asking "What do I need to know today?"

I do not believe in coincidences, so, it is my belief that the Force determins wich card we will pick each time. However there can be error in how we interpret a card drawn and get the wrong message. That is why I keep a journal, and look at more than the book interpretation of a card. For instance, maybe a card's image has a beach on it but the book interpretation might not say anything about that beach, but sometimes that card could forshadow a trip to the beach. (Just an example). The more you use your deck, the more you learn by feel what each card can mean and also by feel, when they mean one thing from another. That gut feeling that can be so easy to ignore, is probably the force trying to tell you in my opinion, as I have said I am very new and still learning Jediism.

Interesting! I've never heard of astragalomancy or hand-dowsing. I don't really use tarot as a divination tool in the traditional sense. I use it instead as an intuitive tool. Which could be considered a form of divination, I suppose, with the subject just being a deeper aspect of myself.

It's definitely important to involve your own intuition in tarot, no matter what you're trying to do with the cards. The way I was taught involved looking at the specific artwork and seeing if anything intuitively jumped out at you, separate from the "textbook" meaning of the card. What deck do you use?

I have 2 decks now, one called Guilded Tarrot wich was my first one, and another called Quick and Easy that has book meanings printed on the cards as well as images that I think must be the traditional images.

Both decks were gifts, and I had no help in choosing them. I have a story about how it came to be that I became interested in Tarot and how shortly after I was surprised by being given a deck without having even asking for one. Things just tend to work out sometimes.

That's so cool how that worked out! And I'll have to check out those decks. I just use the basic Rider one.
