Top 3 Tarot Myths Busted

Standard

Seven of SwordsToday I thought I’d do some myth-busting about the Tarot seeing that many people have a lot of misconceptions about how Tarot readings actually work. So, voila!…. Here are my Top 3 myths about the Tarot BUSTED !

1.  You Need to be Psychic to read the Tarot:
Nothing could be farther from the truth. Whilst there are quite a few gifted “psychics” and “intuitives” who are naturally gifted at reading the tarot, the vast majority of Tarot cards readers, interpret them through knowledge honed from extensive study and application of card theory. There are 78 cards in the traditional Tarot deck and with practice, a Tarot card reader can get a feel of the situation based on the way the cards fall in the reading and their position relative to other cards in the deck. It must be said though that Tarot is a great tool for intuitive development, so even if you don’t start off as a psychic, with extensive practice and application on the cards, you start getting more comfortable with opening up to your natural intuitive ability.
2. The Tarot is a Tool for Prediction:
The Tarot , as is normally used by modern day readers, is first and foremost a guidance tool.  All the answers are already there within you and the Tarot simply lays them out where you can see them for yourself.  Tarot can provide you options and possible solutions and outcomes. It can also sometimes bring to the light not so positive aspects of your personality which need to be worked on. Yes, some people do use Tarot for predictions but understand that the future is not set in stone and the future can be altered on any given moment by the decisions you choose to make. It’s also important to remember that most ethical readers do not provide medical or legal diagnosis.
3. The Tarot is evil:
This one gives me the chuckles. I guess in every spiritual path you have a choice and even in traditional religion people can go down the dark side. For example the dark side of traditional organized religion would be the abuse of power or fundamentalism. Modern day Tarot readers are, for the most part, your average bunch of harmless boys or girls next door. Having said that, there will always be the few dark sheep in every group, and in such cases let your intuition be your guide. Always go to someone who is genuine and radiates kindness, compassion, honesty and detachment in their persona and readings.
