Part 1 Pitfalls and Myths
Tarot has had bad press in recent years, as many have used it to predict the future and extract money from vulnerable people. It is therefore time to restore its image and return to the here and now rather than wander into the future. More and more young people are interested in this divinatory art more than 700 years old. It is therefore time to give it a new lease of life. This is also one of the reasons why I write this blog. Too many of the most bizarre myths circulate on this subject.
One of the most common pitfalls encountered when starting out in this world is that of being subjective. To project on the slides what you want to happen rather than the truth. The tarot should first of all be a tool of personal introspection, a kind of mirror of our soul and not a machine to answer for us. Keep in mind that we have the answers to each of the questions that concern us. The blades (cards) will only support our feelings in certain situations. A kind of message from our guides, our angels, our higher power whatever the name you have given it. Have you ever had the answer to a question but didn’t want to hear it? Well the tarot, if you are ready, will confirm that your feelings are good. How many times have you already said: I should have listened to myself.
Questions like “will I win the lottery?” “Will I find love?” and “is this the right guy for me?” are in no way questions to ask in tarot or any other form of divination games. Ironically these are the most frequently asked questions. Why shouldn’t we ask this kind of question? It’s simple, because if you are in the future there is something that you do not want to see in the present moment and yet this is where you have to look for the answers, because there is something is the only time we have power over. Change these questions by finding a question that does not answer yes or no. You will see by this simple exercise you will already answer part of your question. Example: change “will I win the lottery” to “is money good for me” or “will I find find love” to “what should I know about my romantic relationships” and “is this the right guy for me ”by“ what energy unites us? ” These are questions that lead us to wonder about certain areas of our lives in which we have more difficulty letting energy flow. No one consults a medium just for pleasure, there is always a hidden need to know. But deep down, we already have all the answers right there in front of us sometimes blinded by our ego. You will see the tarot will let you know, fear not!
Do you have to have gifts to read the tarot? We all have the gift of feeling and perceiving subtle energies, but in order to do this we have to be connected to our soul (subconscious, Divine Source, Universe, God, give it any name you want, but give it a name). Meditate and refocus remains the best method. The ritual should be sacred, it is a time when you meet your soul or the souls of another so it is a most privileged time, so cherish it. Use your creativity to create your own ritual and be inspired by those who pull and call you. So yes, it is a gift, but it is hidden in each of us. Tarot is only a material extension like all other divinatory tools.
How to choose my tarot? Listen to yourself and trust yourself. The one intended for you will make you vibrate as if it is whispering something to you. It can only be a map or an image. Some myths said that it should be stolen or that it should be a gift. It is not, it all depends on the energy you put into it. Our tarot should make us live a kind of love story. I do not hide from you that the most popular games such as the Rider Smith Wait Classic designed by Pamela Cohens at the end of the 1800s or the Tarot de Marseille developed during the 1700s, have a high vibratory rate since many souls are there. have been connected for all these years. The more people there are connected to an element, the stronger the vibration. But the energy of each blade remains, no matter the game, the fool remains the fool no matter the image.
Finally believe in yourself and in your abilities. There is no perfect way to read tarot or interpret it. It is only what you firmly believe in that makes you vibrate.
