2. Tarot Reading - Tarot Reading, first experimented by Carl Jung, is about telling the future of a person by reading the tarot cards. Though the objects are described as cards, but these are actually a set of symbolism. Tarot readers ask the person to choose any card from the given ones. Selecting a tarot card depends on the unconscious self of a human being as it reveals the fundamental type of a person hidden beneath. This practice of tarot reading is widely popular across globe.
