Overview

Is it possible, using nothing more than a seemingly simple Tarot deck, to tap into a realm beyond time—a dimension in which the events of the "future" are revealed to you?

In this groundbreaking and provocative work, professional Tarot reader Ly de Angeles shares a wealth of knowledge, offering proven techniques for using the Tarot to predict the future.

Quantum time and multiple lives + Shadow reality + Free will and fate
The Tree of Life + Personal energy fields + Gods and ghosts + The random factor
Predictions and prophesies + Self-protection and psychic clag
