Synchronicity: How Oracles WorkOracle systems such as tarot, astrology, I-Ching, and numerology are based on the premise of "synchronicity." The idea behind synchronicity is that each microcosm in the universe contains the macrocosm. That is, there are fundamental principles and patterns that repeat themselves everywhere in creation within my cells, within my personality, and in the planets. Like a hologram, the entire universe can be found at every point in creation. Therefore, the imprint of the heavens at birth or the layout of the tarot cards or the I-Ching patterns contain within them clues to understand our questions about past, present, and future, if we know how to interpret them.
Dr. James Wanless in "Voyager Tarot(TM), Way of the Great Oracle," defines synchronicity as, "the great law that all events are related in time and space even though there may seem to be no tangible cause-and-effect relationship. The card you select, therefore, is the right' card for you at that time in spite of the seeming randomness of your choice. There are no accidents. With this knowledge, we gain trust in the universe and the invisible ways that it works." (For more information also see by Dr. Wanless, "Strategic Intuition in the 21st Century - Tarot for Business" and his Voyager Tarot(TM) deck.)
A religious person could apply the principle of synchronicity by poising a personal question, and then opening his or her scriptural text to a random verse. After reading the verse, the person thinks on how that verse helps answer the question. In this way oracles are used to expand our free will by giving us more information to accomplish our goals. For example, if Astrology tells us that we are about to enter a "Mars accident period" we put a little more attention on our driving. If we pick up the tarot card that symbolizes inner wisdom, we might decide that a detached, active listening approach would be the most effective style dealing with an important client. In other words, using this principle of synchronicity we can use oracles as guideposts, as warnings, or confidence-builders.

Wynter Stone's I-Ching The traditional Chinese fortune-telling based on the I-Ching (Book of Changes) involves coin tosses or the drawing of yarrow sticks. This program offers computerized coins or yarrow stick descriptions so that the necessary pattern of six lines forming a hexagram can be selected. The documentation comments, "The "yin and yang" philosophy of the I-Ching is ideally suited to the "yes and no" or "0 and 1" mentality of the computer." After the hexagram is derived, text from the I-Ching is available for interpretation. This text can be edited and printed or saved to disk. The software is menu driven. Pricing: $19
