Reading tarot is a beautiful life tool. But many come to it with high, unrealistic expectations. Often we want answers and predictions to make us feel better about the future, but we have no willingness to change or grow. However, that is what tarot do best. They reflect your life and they help you change and grow. It's important for anyone using tarot to occasionally check in on how they use the cards and consider whether the relationship is working. Here I present some thoughts for you to consider to ensure your relationship with the cards remans empowering...
Your tarot expectations and relationship is unhealthy if...
You want to be told what to do.
You hope to be gifted a magical answer or prediction that 'saves' you.
You are disgruntled by the thought that you might not be perfect and the tarot suggest you making some personal changes.
You are willing to hand your life over to a stranger with a deck of cards and take everything they say as law....
They make you nervous or you don't feel ready to engage with them (then don't).
You've had a worrying reading, and it is haunting you... (Check out my article: Help! I've had a bad reading)
How to enjoy a healthy Tarot relationship...
Always see what comes up in the cards as insightful guidance that reflects what is already known to you - the cards are reflection not prediction.
Know you have all the power to change your life and steer the course of your life to happier outcomes.
You ask open questions that help you consider yourself, your personal growth and the things you can control (you, your reactions and your habits).
Learn the cards yourself and treat them as an objective friend whom you turn to for truth.
See tarot as a mirror and a reflection that allows you to expand.
Use the cards alongside other holistic spiritual practices, therapy, healthy living, exercise etc, that make you feel good.
Don't over-consult the cards and give them a break when you are not in a place to handle what they bring.
