The Tarot Shuffle

February 6th, 2013 § 0 comments

If you’re a music loving Tarot reader you might want to try out this idea by James Truong – an iPod Tarot Deck.

The complete instructions can be found at WikiHow, but the idea is pretty simple if you already know how to create a playlist. And it doesn’t have to be on an iPod – any digital media player will work.

Just sit down with your music library and choose songs that you think best represent the particular cards in the deck and collect them all in a playlist marked ‘Tarot’.

For instance, you might choose something like Bob Dylan’s Mr. Tambourine Man for the Fool, a classic version of Ave Maria for the High Priestess, or the Stone’s Sympathy for the Devil for, of course, the Devil.

Though those choices are pretty obvious, to find all the cards takes some time. I’d personally start with just the Majors and work from there.

When you get all you cards/songs chosen, then you can finally start to play. All you have to do is ask your question and press ‘shuffle’. The song that first plays (or maybe even the first two or three) is the answer to your query.

I love it. I want to go make one now.
