Hudes Tarot

Written by  on January 10, 2016

This interesting deck by Susan Hudes was published in 1995 by U.S. Games Systems. It’s a standard 78-card deck, with Major card names, Court card names, and suit titles all following the Waite-Smith deck.

No such thing as luck

‘No such thing as luck’ or what is a Tarot reading

Hardcore fans of Science generally are quite skeptical about fortune telling and especially about Tarot cards. They seem to ignore the fact that Physics is about predicting the future. As a consequence we should consider Physics a kind of Magic or charlatanism? Obviously this is not the case. While Science needs a data set to make predictions, Tarot works in a mysterious, not yet identified way. While in Science the quantity of data it’s crucial and the lack of data or more data can alter or completely change the result of a prediction, in Tarot all we need is the 78 Tarot cards which incorporates all the available data (information) from the Universe.
