Greetings, darlings! This may be one of the most important posts I ever write because there is a lot of misinformation about there about what Tarot is and how it works. So #LetsTalkTarot! Popular Culture and Con Artists, have taken the mystique of Tarot, Oracle and Lenormand cards and perverted them into black magic wielding, teller of all and keeper of the secrets of the universe. Ok, I admit my Tarot of the Cat People would probably agree with the last part of that statement, but it is a cat deck so that makes sense.
There are two key facts everyone needs to understand before going any further:
1) There is no such thing as predestination. Period. The future's not set in stone and is constantly being created and recreated depending on the decisions made by you and others around you. If your intention for getting a reading is to be told when you will get married, win the lottery or get that new job... save your money; a reading isn't going to help you.
2) The Cards will not make decisions for you. The cards aren't your parents, you are not their young child - they will give you advice and information about the situation to make your own educated decision but they will never tell you what to do. Making decisions, especially the difficult and challenging ones are all part of the process of your life's path and while the Divine, Angels, #Archangels and #AscendedMasters want to love you and support you, they will never take away your right/responsibility to make decisions for yourself.
Ok, so then what information can you get from a reading? Now that we know what the cards cannot do and dispeled a few old pop culture myths let's talk about what they can do. Tarot connects to the Divine, Archangels and Ascended Masters and acts as a physical conduit for their knowledge and energy. They will acknowledge the situation(s) you are in and discuss the situation in detail (how much detail depends on the spread of the cards or how many cards are drawn). A typical reading offers insights about who is involved, your own actions or misactions in the situation and an advice to get the most positive outcome for all involved. Now there may or may not be a glimpse into the future - which is just a heads up on the track you are heading right now so you can take the information given to you in the reading and make those darn educated decisions.
#Readings are designed to empower us, connect us to Divine Wisdom, Love and Light. Readings help us to feel part of the spiritual community and remind us that we are never alone on our life's path, even when making the most difficult or heartbreaking decisions.
