Astrology & Tarot card reading are the divination tools that are used to acquire insight on a person’s past, present, and future. While astrology is a pseudoscience which is done by studying the movements and relative positions of celestial objects, tarot card reading on the other hand, is a type of cartomancy which means it uses a deck of cards for fortune-telling or divination. Although, having numerous similarities, both of them run on a different principle.
What is Astrology reading?
Astrology has begun in antiquity and has many different types. The Astrology reading reveals a person’s personality and other major life events which are based on the position of sun, moon and other heavenly bodies at the time of a person’s birth. It also discloses the personality of people who fall into a particular sun sign. Astrology zodiac sign is the most common form which many of us must have witnessed, it is a generic prediction that may or may not apply to everyone.
The reason why horoscope prediction does not correspond to each individual is that the prediction takes into account the star sign only which puts out the generic traits of a person’s personality and choices. The zodiac signs are also known as the constellations, every year sun moves through each zodiac sign and whatever the position of the sun will be at the time of a person’s birth will be his/ her star sign. A perfect conclusion or nearly perfect conclusion can only be formed if the planet and moon position is also taken into account. An astrologer’s interpretation can be accurate if they know the exact positions. The art of astrology can be tricky and requires vast knowledge to start professionally as each individual has different planetary positions and requires higher experience.
What is tarot reading?
Tarot card reading is another deliberate form of divination (a practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means), which uses tarot cards to make the prediction and not the planetary positions. A person having a good sense of intuition can easily manage to predict the accurate readings. Usually, such prophecy is undertaken by psychics & spiritual mediums, these people have a special mental ability.
The major points of differences are:
- Tarot reading requires tarot cards for prediction, whereas astrology is based on horoscope reading and it uses birth detail to predict the future.
- Tarot reading highly depends on the reader’s intuition, whereas astrology follows a calculative method to study the positions of celestial bodies to form an interpretation.
- Tarot readers make the prediction by reading the energy emitted by the person, on the other hand, astrology uses their theory to tell the prediction.
- Tarot reading relates to the subconscious mind and helps in making a right decision, whereas astrology has no connection with a human’s subconscious mind.
