Find out the misconceptions about tarot.
As we know, anything that is popular and at the same time hard to explain is full of myths. The presence of a lot of myths and superstitions about Tarot cards indicates that most people see an enigma and sometimes even a danger in the cards. Many sincerely do not understand how this tool works, although humanity has been using this system for hundreds of years.
So let’s talk about the myths themselves, which I’m going to try to demystify.
MYTH 1 – THE CARDS WILL TELL YOURSELF
Some people believe that there is no need to formulate and ask a question, the request can only be “What is happening in my life?” and “What will happen next?” And the cards will answer as clearly and understandably as possible.
This myth consists of distrust of cards since you must first make sure that they tell me what will resonate and will correspond to the subjective vision of what you already know. This approach is understandable because you want qualified assistance of high quality.
Everything is the exact reverse. The more precisely the request is formulated, which may consist of a description of the problem and a whole series of questions, the more accurate the answer is. In addition, the specialist is able to ask leading and clarifying questions. It makes two kinds of sense.
Firstly – details and specification, the second is reformulation, which will introduce precision and clarity, even before starting the work as such. This is already part of the answer to the question. After all, as you know, a correct question has half the answer.
MYTH 2 – WITH THE HELP OF THE TAROT IT IS POSSIBLE TO GUESS FATE
Of course, we are talking about forecasts for the future. But the future is made up of the present, and the present is made up of the past.
If the approach to working with the Tarot is aimed specifically at diagnosing the problem and identifying causal relationships, then the knot of the problem is untied and the freedom of choice appears in the future.
If you figure it out, as a constructor, and reassemble in a certain aspect of your life, then there is no talk of any negative programming. Rather, on the contrary, what was in the past, influencing the present, ceases by inertia to drag forward into the future. Accordingly, the changes in the vector of fate are only positive.
MYTH 3 – WHAT IS SAID BY THE CARDS CANNOT BE CHANGED
This myth flows smoothly from the previous one. It’s about fatalism. Moreover, if you look at it, fortune-telling is a change in the life vector from good to bad, and fatalism is something that is predetermined and cannot be changed. It turns out to be a paradox.
It is also necessary to clarify the terminology of “fortune-telling”. Guessing is not quite the correct definition with a competent approach to cards. Diagnostics, forecasting, modeling, transformation – yes, but guessing (how to guess) is by no means.
The task of the ongoing work with Tarot is qualitative changes that provide a person with freedom of choice and the removal of restrictions, the ability to build the most favorable vector, and even come to the intended goals with the help of the information received.
Plus, the future is not determined in only one way, it is multivariate and implies the fact that a person himself can change the course of many life events. A competent and qualified tarot reader not only interprets cards from a fateful position but always gives advice and recommendations for changing lives for the better.
MYTH 4 – DO NOT DIAGNOSE YOURSELF
It is possible and even useful. The purpose of this tool is “Know thyself”.
Changes begin only with oneself and from the inside out. Having worked out his problems, a person will learn not to project them onto other people and to work with an open mind both with himself and with others.
Only by working on yourself, you can change something. But there are also overly emotionally charged situations when the impartiality and disinterest of an outside specialist, his strength, and resources are needed.
But this moment, again, when working out, can be easily eliminated. With a decrease in emotionality and discharge of energy, projections of past experience onto the present and future won’t distort and refract reality, since they will remove the affective charge and inebriation of perception.
MYTH 5 – USING TAROT CARDS IS A SIN
It is a sin not to know yourself. Sin is the inconsistency of man with the purpose of his existence; it is an incomplete man in himself, in the unnatural realization of his human nature. Not self-sufficient, shared with his inner world, with his loved ones, and with everything that is above him.
Tarot cards are just that faithful companion on the way to yourself, which will allow you to understand and accept the duality of your nature, work through imperfections, come into harmony with your conscience, with your life, and with the people around you.
In the end, I want to add that the tool is harmless only if you are open to communication with it and have no fears in this regard. Then you can safely take up the study of Tarot to be able to help yourself and your loved ones in the future!
MYTH 6 – THE PACK SHOULD BE SINGLY CHARGED OTHERWISE IT WON’T WORK
This statement is only true if you get it well into your head and believe it. We set the rules for ourselves. To work with Tarot, there is no need to either charge or bless a deck of cards, it is enough to feel the images of each cards represents before working with a new deck.
MYTH 7 – OTHERS CAN’T TAKE THE DECK IN THEIR HANDS
Many tarologists believe that if you can give your deck to someone in the hands, then only “in parts”, or not at all. Justification – “The deck can be hurt.” Of course, this is not possible, but in a simple ordinary case, nothing will happen. What you really can’t do is to use the deck for any gambling (there are cases), since the excitement of the players can really charge individual cards and the deck as a whole with their desire to win or other emotion.
MYTH 8 – I WANT THE X DECK BECAUSE IT WORKS
For a tarot reader, it is not the deck that truly works, but the head. It’s the use of intuition and the ability to logically interpret what is received. The deck only helps to interpret the flair. There’s no guarantee that this deck will help you better than the one that you already have.
MYTH 9 – IF YOU HURT THE DECK, IT WILL STOP “TALKING”
The deck differs from a person for the better, she is not familiar with resentment by definition. Try to offend the hammer at your leisure, or a soldering iron, or any other tool. By the way, the school of magic Tarot is a direct descendant of the Kabbalistic tradition, which means that the spiritualization of things is a manifestation of idolatry, which is not permissible.
MYTH 10 – DEPENDENCE ON THE CARDS
Dependence on cards may arise, but rather not on the cards themselves, but on the desire to “spread straws” in advance. But since the tarot cards are in some way alive, at some point they may decide that they have had enough and will refuse to give any predictions, or they will begin to predict complete nonsense. In this case the addiction will be created not by the cards, but by the person himself. In their desire to unconsciously control all processes. Once realizing that tarot can show a fairly complete picture of what is happening, such people can start using cards for any issues, even the most trifling ones. By the way, such an endless desire to consult with cards speaks of one’s insecurity and low self-esteem.
