There are misconceptions about Tarot Cards and people are a skeptical about this “game” and the outcome of a reading. That is why I wanted to share with you, all I know about Tarot Cards and by sharing my personal experience as well, so we can have an answer to this frequently asked question.
How can Tarot Cards tell me what I need to know?
Tarot Cards help you to open your mind and sharpen your intuition to find the answers that are already within you, but if you are distracted, living your life or are to closed-minded to acknowledge.
That is the power of Tarot Cards and the reason why they are one of the best tools we have to work on our personal growth, and the realization of our projects and dreams. They also give us clarity and guidance when struggling in a relationship, with certain questions or situations.
Are Tarot Cards accurate?
The short answer is YES. But you must structure your questions the right way, to give the cards the opportunity to give you accurate guidance.
Sometimes it happens that we receive answers that immediately do not make sense to us or that we are not convinced completely.
When this happens, it is generally for two reasons. One is because of how we set the question to be asked, if we ask a confusing question, we will receive a confusing answer.
The Tarot Cards do not read your mind or translate what you are thinking, but the cards are unable to explain this to the reader. The other reason is if you are skeptical and not believe in divination or the whole process. Testing the forces that govern Tarot Cards by asking misleading or false questions is never a good idea.
Sometimes the cards show a path that later turns out to be different. This happens because the Tarot Cards, only act as an adviser. They give you advice, and then it is up to you to decide whether you choose to listen or take a different path. As the future is always changing based upon our choices and our actions.
My personal experience
I use Tarot Cards to ask different kinds of questions. One of the times Tarot Cards were mind-blowingly accurate for me was when I asked them about a dream I had and what it wanted me to know.
I dreamt that my grandpa, who had passed away years earlier, was uncharacteristically sad. In my dream, I asked him why he was down, but he didn’t answer. His sadness was haunting me, as he was a very happy person and I had never seen him look like that when he was alive.
So, I asked the Tarot Cards for guidance.
I asked the question, “What did my grandfather want me to know in that dream?”
The result? The Mother of Swords card showed up in my one-card reading.
The mother of swords can mean that someone is undergoing some hardship and they may be a widow. I instantly thought of my aunt, my grandpa’s sister, who is a sweet old lady and… a widow.
I called her on the phone, and she was incredibly sad because she had been robbed and felt disillusioned and angry about it, as it was a close friend’s son that had done it. All she needed was some emotional support from me.
So, my grandpa just wanted me to reach out to her as he could not be there for her, as he had been when he was alive, as they were very close. I could spend days telling you about how Tarot Cards have been accurate for me, but that time was for sure, the time I felt the deepest connection with the cards.
Apart from that experience, I do daily readings, to let the Tarot Cards guide me through what to focus on to have a productive day.
Most days the cards give me advice like spending more time with family members, connecting with nature, not being over-controlling, believe more in myself and my skills, and other practical advice.
When a card doesn’t seem to resonate with my question, I simply leave it sitting nearby, so when I walk past it, it reminds me of my question and often when I’m not focused on my question, the answer will pop into my head.
So, give it the time to manifest over the course of the day.
Are Tarot Cards reliable?
I can tell you with absolute certainty, yes Tarot Cards are amazingly reliable and they can definitely change your life, as they will give you an insight, a connection with yourself and your inner wisdom by unlocking some truths and information which may be lying dormant inside of you.
But you must respect the cards, have total belief in them and be thankful and appreciative for the messages they are trying to tell you, even if it’s not what you want to hear.
Basically, Tarot Cards are designed for all of us, but only some people have the power to create a real bond and connection with the cards, giving them the chance to be accurate and reliable Tarot Card readers.
Tarot Cards work for someone who:
- Wants to know the truth with no masks and no filter
- Approaches a reading the right way and allows the cards to give its message and acknowledges it as a special gift
- Believes Tarot Cards are a guidance tool and give advice, but they still have the power of free will to make their own decisions
What should you look for in a Tarot Cards reading?
- An answer to your doubts
- Special guidance
- A moment of clarity
- Advice regarding consequences or outcomes if you choose to go in one direction or another
- A confirmation of something that is already known, but which one does not have the courage to admit
What is the best approach to let the cards be accurate and spread meaningful and helpful messages?
Tarot Cards never come out without any logic, as they reflect a reality, present, imminent, or which is already written. If a Tarot Card appears, it does so expressly to communicate something to us.
Interpreting the sequence in which the cards are shown to us, is the responsibility of the reader, who will read them not only with their eyes, but with the mind to deduce their underlying meaning.
A Tarot Card that to the uninitiated or unfamiliar, could in itself seem ugly, however in reality, depending on its disposition, it could have a positive implication. Beautiful or unpleasant as it may be, Tarot Cards will always say what it is and what it will be and then it is up to the person asking for the consultation to decide, whether to follow the cards advice even if it may seem preposterous.
So, Tarot Cards can be an accurate tool if used correctly. If you dive into Tarot Cards the right way, by asking the right questions, considering them as a tool to acknowledge what you may need to change to be happier, I am absolutely positive your experience with Tarot Cards will be a good one.
