The Algorithm of Assurance

The bot thinks your idea is generally alright. No major issue seen and no big objections. The algorithm of assurance depicts a generally agreeable response. Of course, if you have some personal phobia related to non-organic sentient beings, then perhaps this illustration would have a different meaning for you. And while we are on that point, I should point out that that’s exactly how tarot readings are supposed to work.

Remember the artwork is supposed to be a visual cue to interpret the situation and not an end in itself. In this case, think about how you feel about the decision you are about to make when you look at this picture – are you getting a yes or no vibe?

To illustrate this concept better, let’s use the traditional tarot deck for an easier point of reference.

How do visual cues work in tarot readings?

This concept is perhaps best understood by looking at examples of the major arcana and what they may represent:

The World card: This card can either mean the beginning or ending of a life or of a cycle of events. It can also represent a holistic situation or need for holistic consideration of a problem.

The Fool card. This is a powerful card that can mean many things. It can mean enjoyment, confidence, intoxication and many other things. If this card is pulled in reverse it can mean all whole bunch of other things as well.

The Hierophant card: This card can reference a traditional approach. It is typically conservative in nature. An upside-down draw of this card can mean that a person in position of reference or power is abusing the trust.

The Juggler card: This card has a surprisingly popular connotation. Pulling the juggler can be a taken as a reference to tarot questioner’s skills and capabilities. It can mean that the person has as unique skillset. It can also mean that the person’s skill set is too trivial to be of practical use.

The Temperance card: This card can mean that the questioner needs balance in their life. Or it can be a reference to the questioner’s level of patience. In a situational analysis, it can mean that the querent should avoid high intensity situation either emotionally or physically.

The Hermit card: This card usually refers to safety, isolation and recovery. It can also refer to wisdom and maturity. In some ways, it can refer to simplicity.

The Lover card:  This can be a complicated card to interpret. In some ways it can refer literally to relationships. It can also be a reference to decisions that need to be made. This card can also refer to big changes, sacrifices or emotional growth.

The Wheel of Fortune card: Surprisingly, this card is rarely interpreted as a pending lottery strike. In fact, it almost never is. Instead, it can be interested as a big unexpected change about to occur. It can also refer to a state where control is lost and outcomes depends on the actions of others and other things over which the querent has no direct influence. It can also mean hope.

The Emperor card: This card is usually taken to refer to a period of foundational stability. It can also have a negative tone to mean a period of overbearing control that cannot be overcome easily.
