Why get a tarot reading?
It’s a great question. There are several reasons why you should—and a few why you shouldn’t.
√ Curiosity. You’re intrigued by the cards. You may not know much about them, but you feel drawn to their mystery. You’ve heard about them, seen them used in movies, maybe you have friends who’ve had their cards read and you’d like to see what it’s all about. Perhaps you’re skeptical. That’s totally fine. Tell your reader that.
√ Guidance. You’re going through a lot right now and you can’t seem to focus or find direction. You feel like you’re being moved to make a decision or change something, but you’re not sure how to go about it. You’d like some perspective on going back to school, looking for a new job, navigating a new relationship or looking to move.
√ Entertainment. We’re living through a pandemic and Netflix and YouTube can get boring. The cards offer something a little different to jazz up your day.
X You want to know what your ex is up to. The cards aren’t meant to spy on others. That’s bad energy.
X You want someone to tell you what to do. The cards are a tool to help YOU take responsibility for your decisions. They can’t parent you.
X You want to know what the future holds. Again, the cards are a tool to help you construct and manifest the life you want. Nothing is set in stone. The cards can only show what is likely to happen with the current energy.
X You want to put a curse on someone. Nope. That’s not what the cards are for.
X You want to test the reader and prove him or her wrong. Yes, there are scammers out there and it would feel great to call him or her out. But if you’re sitting with a true reader who is doing this from a place of empathy and service, you’re bringing bad vibes on yourself, not to mention wasting your time and money. If you aren’t open to the magic of the cards, kindly move along.
