Divination Tools: Astrology and Tarot
When it comes to tools, I like to utilize both astrology and tarot cards. Of course, there are plenty of other divination tools people love to use and there’s nothing wrong with that.
You just have to find a tool, or tools, that help bring out your intuition. I’ll explain.

Here’s a quick list of other tools you can use:
Why do people use divination tools?
People use divination tools to either predict outcomes, read or understand energies, or speak to spirits. It’s really that simple, but people must also understand that these are just tools.
Divination tools are secondary to natural gifts such as clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and claircognizance. I say this because in order to achieve a higher level of intuition and spirit connection, one would already have to recognize their gifts (this is, of course, my own opinion).

I find that the quality of readings goes up when the individual is aware of their unique “powers” and/or are naturally talented in the tools they choose. This isn’t to say that you can’t learn.
It just means that if you’re going to practice these tools, then you should know why you’re doing it. Are you doing it to understand yourself? To understand others? For good or for evil? Etc.
And there’s nothing wrong with wanting to just use it for personal use. You can really do whatever you want.
Astrology, to me, is a way of understanding our inner elemental energies. It helps us accept others for who they are and it can help you learn your own strengths and weaknesses. A lot of times, people utilize astrology for love compatibility and predictive horoscopes.

If you’re going to write predictive horoscopes, you must have a thorough and deep understanding of planetary transitions, zodiac signs, aspects, and elements.
Should I read predictive horoscopes?
It’s really up to you. Some people follow predictive horoscopes and some only like to learn about their energies or other people’s energies.
I think predictive horoscopes are an awesome way to know what’s ahead. However, I strongly believe that the individual writing predictions must be fully in tune with the universe.

Please always remember these words: YOU ARE MORE THAN JUST YOUR SUN SIGN. I say this all the time and can't stress it enough. I really don't know why people refuse to do this step. Know your damn self, lol.
YOU ARE MORE THAN JUST YOUR SUN SIGN.
If you need to start somewhere at least know your own birth chart. Generate a free chart here.
Tarot is an awesome way of interpreting messages or predicting outcomes. You can choose from hundreds, if not thousands, of different card designs and styles.
There are also different methods to tarot: Rider-Waite, Thoth, Golden Dawn, Hermetic, etc.

Choose whatever resonates with you the most. I like to use a combination of Rider-Waite and Thoth; and I use two different decks, depending on the person.

There are a lot of people who say you can’t see the future in them, and that really depends on the person. I never judge a person’s ability.
However, I strongly believe that a person who isn’t aware of their own natural gifts will be unable to see further than the cards themselves.

Types of Readers
Whether you use astrology, tarot cards, or any other divination tool just understand that these are just tools. Nothing more nothing less.
Just always remember: there are energy readers, there are psychics, there are mediums, and then there are psychic mediums.
Uses physical senses or tools to interpret your energy and aura.
Read cards or any other tool to interpret your past, present and future.
Speak, sense and/or see spirits (decease humans, demons, angels, or any other spirit).
Capable of either speaking, sensing, and/or seeing spirits and receive messages; they can choose to use tools to interpret these messages or not at all.
To me, tools should never come before your natural gifts, but if they do then who am I to judge? Lol. Do whatever feels right to you.
