Tarot as the means to influence future

Hello all!

I’ve been thinking about this for a while. Tarot can be used to foretell future. However, can it be used to change future as well? For example, if I’m not satisfied with how the cards foretell my financial situation could I somehow manipulate fate with the cards on the table or in my deck? Or is there a different method one could use?

Thank you so much for your help!

Thanks for bringing this topic up, @yaldaba0th - great question. I really enjoyed E.A’s answer on youtube. A book I have had success with is “Tarot Spells” by Janina Renee published by Llewellyn. The spells might be a bit light and folksy especially for a lot of members of this forum, but I haven’t had a spell fail me from this collection yet.

Having said that, temptation got the better of me and I have succumbed and got the Tyson book!

Which book do you prefer? I don’t have a lot of tools and no money (so far I haven’t had any luck with Bune or anything), but I have a deck of cards. If I could save up for just one book, because even $12 or so is very hard to come by, which book would be the best?

This post gave me an awesome idea.

Instead of asking the cards the future and drawing them, lay out the cards that would represent the future you want then declare them to be the future. Kinda like casting a sigil, but different.

That is what Orleee does in her ritual. She traps your future into the cards then she changes it to fit your desires.

Interesting choice of words. Basically using the cards to act like a sieve to filter out the futures that would interfere with the desired result.

If you want to read it I posted it above in the comment.

Out of the two books I mentioned, I would go with the Tarot Spells Janina Renee option. I remember the Tyson book being very complex and I struggled through a few chapters and gave up as I wasn’t enjoying it.
Having said all that I think the way I would go now is to do a tarot reading in a ritual setting and in a place where the spread can stay laid out for a while on a given subject/question. If cards came up that I had serious problems with, I would replace them with cards I liked, open them like sigils and send my will through the whole thing to take the matter into my own magickal hands.
