  • "In Tarot X is the number of the blah blah blah" This is the typical nonsense we find when the mainstream media writes about tarot cards. It's the 21st century and we should all be aware that tarot cards have no authentic occult origin. The cards were really intended for playing a card game similar to spades, a card game still played in places like France, and were not really designed for divination.

    The wide spread and false perception that tarot cards are only about card reading and the occult is harmful to culture. The media should knock it off with the occult stereotypes and give a balanced view of tarot cards and tell people they are used for game playing.

  • Occult means secret knowledge. If secret knowledge is harmful to culture, perhaps it should no longer be a secret.

    Speaking of stereotypes, the author of the above piece is far removed from the mainstream media, and as far removed as possible from all other stereotypical categories.
