Osho Zen Tarot by Osho and Ma Deva Padma: a card-by-card feature by Tarot Zamm.
When life seems to be full of doubt and uncertainty we tend to look for a source of inspiration: what will happen in the future?
What about my health, the children?
What will happen if I make this decision and not that one?
This is how the traditional tarot is often used, to satisfy a longing to know about the past and future.
This Osho Zen Tarot focuses instead on gaining an understanding of the here and now. It is a system based on the wisdom of Zen, a wisdom that says events in the outer world simply reflect our own thoughts and feelings, even though we ourselves might be unclear about what those thoughts and feelings are. So it helps us to turn our attention away from outside events so we can find a new clarity of understanding in our innermost hearts.
The conditions and states of mind portrayed by the contemporary images on the cards are all shown as being essentially transitional and transformative. The text in the accompanying book helps to interpret and understand the images in the simple, straightforward and down to earth language of Zen.

I won’t write the headline in caps because if you are attracted to this post it was meant for you. I am in such gratitude for these gorgeous and sightful cards. I have had an auto-connect with these cards from the minute I opened the package. They have literally changed my spiritual life and soon my mundane one as well. I have been practising meditation and reading for friends and family. Now I am currently reading for strangers and let me tell you these cards have helped with scary accuracy. At first, I just read what I saw on the images, whatever popped out to me I told the client. Many felt this reading related but wanted more depth. I wasn’t going to satisfy their need for depth by lying. I instead was patient and kept up the practice. Yesterday for the first time I started getting strong messages from the cards that made me aware a shift was happening. At first, I was hesitant to get “specific” but I decided to just go for it. When I got my first confirmation, literally I was speechless. I’ve always been empathic but wrote it off as “woman’s intuition” until yesterday. Now I am getting more messages, sometimes images and great feedback. I currently offer free readings if you want to see for yourself and read through this whole post. If you did my FB name is Oshun Imamu from Miami. If you are thinking of getting these cards, go for it but know they will not connect with everyone. And they sure do not deserve anything lower than a 5-star view lol. Enjoy the journey. And thank you if you did read this entire post. Be blessed. Love & Light )0(
A few months later and I still wouldn’t trade these cards for ANY other deck. When I first chose this deck it was because it called to me. Yesterday was the first time since a second deck has called to me ALMOST as strongly haha. I still use Osho in my readings but only for my clients who are attracted to it (since then I’ve only attained 3 other decks). Also, I now charge for my readings but at a pretty reasonable price. Still great feedback. I am very grateful to have come across this deck <3 I hope those who bought it have a similar experience. Stay blessed x
