Are you a tarot fan? do you have a repertoire of colourful tarot packs to pick and choose from? Do You follow magical ritual to the letter, making sure you wrap your cards in a silk cloth before you put them back in their magical box? And when life gets tough do you turn to a psychic line tarot reader? Considering how your paranormal “cookie crumbles”, you will not be surprised to learn that you are not the only one who digs tarot, in fact celebrity psychics not only use the tarot’s esoteric symbology to inspire a performance on screen, stage and TV, but to get to grips with showbiz challenge!
Example? Well, the Hermit tarot inside the jacket of the seventies pop group Led Zeppelin’s vinyl recording impressed fans way back. Other A list celebs like Princess Di were also consistent devotees of tarot readers, her favourite pack was the popular Rider Waite tarot. But Princess Di was not the only Royal interested in tarot. It is rumoured a Dutch princess, as perceptive and spiritual as Di herself, digs the occult and has even written complex esoteric scrolls on how she talks to trees. Other celebrity psychics who dig tarot are Christina Ricci who put her tarot pack up for sale on eBay! Additionally, Shirley MacLaine, Dionne Warwick, and Regis Philbin are all in the habit of consulting psychics and tarot readers.
Ozzy Osbourne’s song “Mr Crowley” based on the famous occult beast whose dabbling with black magic was more than a tad sinister, only goes to show that our OTT black leather clad friend is definitely metaphysically orientated. Another Crowley fan, Jimmy Page, considered the top rock guitarist of all time, went a step further and bought The Beast’s old manor house in Foyers, near Loch Ness. Yes Mr Crowley, now passed on, was known as the Beast due to his somewhat demonic taste in furnishings, magical rituals and the darker esoteric significance of his tarot. He designed his own pack, based on The Golden Dawn Magical Treatise, a powerful set of images that only expert readers know how to decipher without their knees knocking!
However, it also has to be said that the beloved John Lennon was not a hot fan of the tarot. In his song “God” he warbled “I don’t believe in Tarot”. But by his own admission later stated “I was going through a really tough time,” Interestingly, the Beatles “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” depicted Alastair Crowley on its cover, along with many significant A listers of the time.
When it comes to Celebrity psychics, please note Alanis Morrisette was spotted on YouTube chatting about her favourite set of tarot cards. Cyndi Lauper says she reads tarot when she cannot think of anything else to do! And of course one of the most fervent members of the celebrity psychics club, David Bowie, also a Crowley and Kabbalah fan, has more than a lot in common with Madonna who projected tarot cards on to a huge screen during one of her world tours!
Okay, it might be a challenge imagining “feet on the ground” actress Cate Blanchett hanging out with a fortune teller when she was researching her role in horror movie “The Gift”. But yes, she did indeed! Perhaps, unsurprising to Gaga fans, the Lady refuses to go on tour unless she has her personal tarot reader by her side!
Many celebrity psychics have a built in showbiz attraction to the occult. Is it healthy, does it signify anything much? The fact is, many of us are aware that “what meets the eye” might just be an illusion, as per the popular Matrix hit movie starring Keanu Reeves. In any event, being a passionate tarot fan has a lot to recommend it, especially when a tarot lay out depicts The Sun shining down on your happy ending! So do not be shy of being a devoted Tarot groupie, join the celebrity psychics club with a grin on your face, and get that finger on the paranormal pulse!
