“The Chinese Horoscope is a guideline to explore the mind and the future of the one requesting assistance. But there are more possibilities, such like the renowned Tarot decks. All Gambling? You decide!“
I never knew it until now, but according my birth date I’m a Fire Monkey. According the Chinese Horoscope I have strong interest about the other, say sexy, Gender (YES) and determined to get things done in all areas (YES).
Thus the Chinese stars show me that I’m powerful and the yellow-red-blue fire helps me as an otherwise be only casual monkey to be a step ahead of others. I’m supposed to be able to correctly evaluate risks and my associated western part is the powerful Lion, a very good combination indeed. I loved to play with fire as a kid, was fascinated from it, and got a great share of trouble watching the flames at that age.
Given that, I consider to make a family seal for myself and start a new dynasty. It is time for it. The only problem is that I have three kids already, no money and nobody listen to my advanced and future oriented ideas. Every step has to be fighted for.
Years ago I read a detailed article abut an astronomer who compared the western astrology step-by-step, event-by-event with what actual has happened and read or proposed from the stars. And do you know what: The numbers did not add up, not even for 1%. In other words, you can’t believe Astrology in any event and from any possible angel. If you do, that is what I call gambling
I believe there are many distinguished experts on Astrology, my wife for example who can make their points, but I’m more scientifically oriented. Stars don’t lie but perhaps their horoscope interpretations are still in their infancy – even after thousands of years finding out the truth. Yet, without Astrology there might not even be an Astronomy!
Having that in mind and the accuracy problem continues exist, I guess I toss away both ways of looking into the future or learn something about me in another way. I will switch to tarot derived from Kabbalah of Jewish mysticism and learn what those cards have to say to me.
After all, they are 22-78 cards per deck available and the number of positive (or negative) outcome predictions is a little bit larger and thus more precisely; no matter that the Chinese Astrology has a head start and exists actually at least since 2637 B.C.; officially introduced by Emperor Huang Ti.
To find out the truth, perhaps a series of complicated and extensive tarot readings can help me. Tarots (or tarocchi) exist only officially since 1367 (600 years ++) and can’t thus compete with the much older Chinese Astrology, but anyway.
But who says that Tarots are less exact? As a tool to gain inside the mind and the future, they might be just as good. The real problem is only to find a good Interpreter of what is obviously presented in front of me as an associated combination of cards with no particular meanings for me. Believing or not, that is the ultimate questions. A little bit faith might help – if you have it.
In any case I feel that the design of many Tarot cards are just marvelous and pretty, a reason in itself to own a few decks.
Yet…I’m a confirmed Fire Monkey, and thus actually don’t give a hood about the opinion of others. Since I like that short description about myself, true or not, I’ll keep it for a while and tell everyone.
