People would ask about different bonds, life span, buying of property but most would ask about love.

He may have regarded the tarot cards as representing archetypes: fundamental types of persons or situations embedded in the collective unconscious of all human beings. The theory of archetypes gives rise to several psychoanalytical uses. Since the cards represent these different archetypes within each individual, ideas of the subject’s self-perception can be gained by asking them to select a card that they ‘identify with’. Equally, the subject can try and clarify the situation by imagining it in terms of the archetypal ideas associated with each card. For instance, someone rushing in heedlessly like the Knight of Swords, or blindly keeping the world at bay like the Rider-Waite-Smith Two of Swords.More recently Timothy Leary has suggested that the tarot trump cards are a pictorial representation of human development from infant to adult, with the “Fool card” symbolizing the newborn infant, the “Magician Card” symbolizing the stage at which an infant begins to play with artifacts, etc. In Leary’s view the tarot trumps may be viewed as a blueprint for the human race as it matures.
