A simple online answer

Sometimes we have a simple question or a binary choice to make. If you are undecided and you are in this situation, then the free 'Yes or No Tarot' is a tool for you. With its help you will receive a simple but still balanced answer to your question online.

Yes or No tarot reading

Is the yes or no tarot reliable?

I didn't do the test, but it's quite possible that from a certain number of reading the average response will be neutral. That is the scientific vision. It is up to you to give a value to chance. What is certain is that if you decide to seriously follow the advice of the online 'Tarot de Marseille', you must be aware that it is as if you were following the advice of a coin toss.

Why use the yes or no Tarot?

There are other divinatory tools that can answer a question with yes or no.

  • The pendulum: This method is simple. A pendulum is a weight (it can be a gemstone like a small lead mass) that is attached to a string or a fine chain. You have to hold the string between your thumb and index finger and ask a question. Normally the pendulum should start to oscillate. The direction it takes (clockwise or counter-clockwise) will give you the answer.
  • Dice: Rolling a dice can give you a positive or negative reading by interpreting the resulting numbers.
  • Salt: You have to take a handful of salt and throw it into a fire. Depending on the duration and intensity of the crackling, a clairvoyant may deduce a positive or negative response.
  • Runes: By discovering three runes it is possible for you to deduce a reply to your question.

This list is not exhaustive, but it is sufficient to understand that the free tarot is not the only divinatory tool that has the ability to answer you by yes or no. Then why use it?

  • If you are in real life, your choice will surely be made in relation to the divinatory object you already possess. In case you don't have any, you can find salt everywhere. But this divination technique is a bit complex, you need a fire and good interpretative skills. I will personally choose the pendulum because it is easy to make one. Obviously a pretty pendulum made of a noble material is pleasant to use, but it is also very easy to make one with a simple string and a weight. You don't need special skills to use it, even if its oscillations seems a bit 'magic', everybody is able to do it.
  • If you prefer virtual life, then all forms of reading are available to you. For example, you could use an online crystal ball. Your preference will then be based on your taste.

Who can use the 'tarot de Marseille'?

In its full version, the 'Tarot de Marseille' is not easy to use. You need to have a good knowledge of the different cards, which all have complex meanings that are interlinked. On the other hand, in the case of a 'yes or no' divination, it is much easier. Each card has a positive, negative or neutral value and the answer to the question will be the sum of these values. Thus, everyone can easily try it. If you are interested, the next paragraph will tell you the value of each card.

A short history of the Tarot

Tarot is probably one of the most widely used divination tools in the world. Although it is not as simple as other methods such as the pendulum, the Tarot has been immersing people in its magic for centuries.

Even if you're not familiar with tarot readings, you've probably seen one of the most common decks, the famous Rider-Waite that has been in print since 1909. It was named after the publisher William Rider and the popular mystic AE Waite. There is also the Tarot de Marseille which probably originated in the 17th century and is very common.

The origin of the Tarot is not very clear. Some say it originated with the Cathars, others with the Sufis or even the gypsies or the Jewish Kabbalists, not to mention the Egyptians. But all the evidence indicates that it appeared in the early 1400s in northern Italy.

The Tarot is not the first card game that existed. slam participated between 1375 and 1378 in the spread of playing cards in Europe. These cards were an adaptation of the Mamluk cards. It was not until later that someone created the original Tarot. It was used for a new type of game. This one was similar to bridge, but with 21 special cards that served as permanent trumps.

It became extraordinarily popular, especially among the upper classes. Then the game gradually spread to northern Italy and eastern France. Modifications were often made to the images and the ranking of the trumps. With time, the game could be found as far away as Sicily and even in Austria, Germany, etc...

The first names given to the card game are all Italian. It was initially known as "carte da trionfi". hen the word "tarocchi" started to be used in Italy, while the Germans used the word "tarock" and the French said "Tarot".

The earliest treatise on the use of Tarot for divination seems to have appeared in Italy around 1540, but the first unambiguous evidence of its use for divinatory purposes can be seen in Bologna in the early 1700s. However, we also know that ordinary playing cards were used for divination as early as 1487, so it is reasonable to assume that Tarot was also used for divination.

In 1781, a French Freemason, Antoine Court de Gebelin, published a complex analysis of the Tarot. In it, he reveals that the symbolism of the deck is actually derived from the esoteric secrets of the Egyptian priests. In his essay, the chapter on the meaning of the Tarot explains the symbolism of the Tarot and connects it to Isis, Osiris and other Egyptian gods. The problem with Gebelin's work is that there is no real historical evidence to support it. But in the early 19th century, decks such as the Tarot de Marseille were produced that took Gebelin's analysis into account.

Over the centuries, the Tarot evolved into the Tarot we know today in its various forms.

Meaning and value of the cards

Let's analyze the different cards.

The juggler

The juggler is the symbol of a new beginning, new projects or new relationships. It can also represent studies or professional life. The strong points of this card are:

  • The spirit of initiative
  • The skills
  • The courage

But it can also be a sign that you will soon have an opportunity. The juggler is cunning, diplomatic and ingenious. He has the strength of conviction and is used to step towards victory and success. This arcane is considered positive.

The Popess

This card symbolizes fertility, but it is also a symbol of inner and spiritual wealth (We see her reading a book). She embodies the ability to observe and patience. She aspires to meditation and finds her real strength in the will for peace. She is more introspective than active. This arcane of the 'Tarot de Marseille' is extremely positive. Its energy will protect you.

The Empress

She is a woman of power. This card is a symbol of intelligence, understanding of the world and knowledge. Intuition is one of the key elements of this character. She very rarely makes a mistake and is sure of what she thinks and analyzes. If you pick this arcane, it will bring you luck, but there is one condition: You have to know how to listen to the signs and trust them.

The Emperor

This arcane evokes power, authority, loyalty and responsibility. The Emperor is a strategist, a convincing person, a leader people want to follow. He knows what he wants and tries to keep control of all the situations he faces. This card will give a positive tint to a yes or no question.

The Pope

The Pope acts as a mediator, a messenger, an intermediary. He is the priest of knowledge and wisdom. He has the effect of freeing and strengthening bodies and souls. This card is positive.

The lover

You will not be surprised that this card symbolizes love. But it would be very simplistic to think that the lover has nothing else to express. This arcane of the 'Tarot de Marseille' also symbolizes the choice, decisions, but also sometimes hesitations, dedication and sincerity. It is a card that represents trust, honesty but also emotional stability, without forgetting desire, passion, but also caution. This arcane is neutral but it can also guide you if you are going through a period of doubt.

The Chariot

This arcane evokes movement, enthusiasm, positive impulse, mutation and travel. The car is moving forward. The energy surrounds you and the direction is positive.

Justice

This card tells you that it is important that you use your intelligence, reasoning and logic rather than having a passionate or prefabricated reaction. Truth is essential to know the essence of things. You may have to find a balance or react immediately to a situation that is uncomfortable for you. This card is negative.

The hermit

In the case of work, the hermit tells you that the coming journey will not be the easiest. But it will lead to success if you keep your commitments to the end without giving up. It is an important arcane because it evokes the strong need to be with oneself, to question oneself. In the case of a question such as "Yes or No", it is a neutral arcane.

The wheel of fortune

This card indicates that things will change soon. You will be able to evolve, go beyond what you know, what you are capable of. Thanks to all the efforts you have made, the future should take place in a positive way. But remember that this evolution is not coming from nothing, it is due to what you have done in the past. This arcane is neutral.

Strength

This arcane evokes strength, command over events, determination, courage and victory. The strength is represented by a woman who manages to control a lion without violence. She has the right gesture and almost perfectly controls the situation. This card is positive.

The hanged man

The message from this card is to wait, because there is no other possible solution for the moment. On a spiritual level, the hangman indicates a period of retirement, a moment of gestation that can be used in a positive and enriching way to prepare a new start in life, new projects. This arcane is negative.

Death

This card evokes the transformation (radical) then the rebirth. Death can be frightening in its very representation, but its meaning is not negative because it is synonymous of a new life. If you pick this card, you will probably have to forget the past, evacuate the pain to make room for something better. In the case of a 'Yes or No' question, this card is negative.

Temperance

This card indicates a happy transformation, a positive renewal which will bring joy. You have been patient, you have worked thinking about long-term. You can now estimate that it is time to reap the rewards of your work. Success has been difficult to achieve but you can now see the progress that has been made. This card is neutral.

The devil

It symbolizes energy, but also excess and violence. The words that could characterize the Devil are: impulse, abuse, betrayal, infidelity, temptation and lies. But this card does not have only one reading, in its positive sense, the devil is synonymous with passion and intuition. This arcana is negative.

The house of God

If you pick this card, you may have received bad news. You feel upset by a failure. The order of things is changed to your disadvantage. This major arcane brings you back to a rather difficult reality and has a negative meaning.
