Can tarot manipulate your thoughts?

I've been using tarot cards for a while and haven't had any negative experiences so far. However,
I was told tarot (& other new age practices) can manipulate your thoughts & mind with an octopus-like structure. Is this true or not?

No they can't. Those are fear based beliefs. The power lies with you. I use tarot with no problems and I know many people who have practised for years - nothing has happened to any of us yet!

When people are scared of something they project all kinds of fears onto it. It's all about intention. Use tarot with nothing but good intentions and you'll be fine. They are only cards which reflect the energy and intention you give them.

I have been using the Qabbalistic Tarot for many decades, and in the tradition of Qabbalah, which is Jewish mysticism, Tarot is used to access a person’s consciousness and grow them spiritually. It is a very positive experience. But in my opinion most people are being manipulated in one way or another, regardless whether they are using new age practices or not, and most people are not even aware that they are being manipulated.

Keep in mind that imagery, colors, and repetitive messages, do manipulate us; television and movies influence us, the colors of the walls in the place where we live influence us; the music and language which we constantly hear from others influence us. The color and type of clothes you wear on a regular basis influences us. There are many, many, sublime things that are influencing and manipulating us every single day. In this world a lot of people are trying to influence your heart and your mind.

I do not know of anyone who has had a “bad” experience with Tarot. I guess it is how a person uses the cards. When I use the Tarot I want it to influence me, give me answers, and set me on a desirable course. But like I said, there are a lot of other things in this world that influence and manipulate peoples minds. Various religions do that as well, so I would not single out one thing, like new age practices, as manipulating people. This is just my opinion.

The basic guidance is, if it does not feel right then don’t do it.

Thanks everyone! I only use tarot (& other things) with good intentions, so I can agree with everyone's viewpoints.

Me, too! Good intentions...My last reading for myself was SO amazing ...I may never do it again, ha, lol.
I'm stilling riding on the wise suggestion given in the cards!! They are amazing...well, like the I Ching that I was used to...
hidden within the cards are such significant little 'things' .
Do I seem blown away? I am.

*I'll text in Navy Blue when I'm speaking as a Mod. :)

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru
