Ms. Jayanti is big on the history of tarot cards and obviously a psychology buff. She interprets the cards as a psychologist might see Rohrschach ink blots. 'I don't work with the tarot to predict the future,' she says. Tarot is a great teaching tool for substance-abuse counselors, according to this author. But she calls it a 'fallacy' that some think tarot readings help you find out about your future. To her, the cards are merely a symbol system that can assist you in understanding yourself -- and you can forget about predictive readings for others. 'Lighting candles or saying prayers' to her is 'just plain ignorant.' I'll take a book that tells me how to read the cards. If I want psychoanalysis, I'll go to a psychiatrist.
