5 myths about Tarot cards (and why they’re not quite true)




When I first encountered Tarot cards, I am one of the many people who perceived these kind of cards as daunting, mystical, and the thought of going to a Tarot reader and hear what they say is even scarier! Are you somewhat familiar with this?


But then I realized what I thought was pure myths! I even fall in love with Tarot cards afterwards and during these many years, they have helped me to grow and nurture my intuition.


So here I’d like to discuss some of the most miss-perceived and hideous myths about Tarot. Knowing the truth might surprise you.


1. Psychic are the only people who can read Tarot cards

Many people will have you believe that you have to be a psychic to read Tarot. That is, to be a good Tarot reader, you have to have some sort of supernatural power that allows you to see the future, know what people are thinking, or receive messages from the Spirit World.

The truth is, you don’t have to be a psychic to be a good Tarot reader. In fact, anyone can learn to read Tarot.

So, instead of giving up on Tarot completely because you don’t have visions of the future or because you can’t read people’s minds, know that you can still learn how to read the Tarot cards.All you need to do is say yes to your intuition. We are all intuitive beings. Everyone of us. Because when you do say yes to your intuition, you open yourself to the full possibility of life.


2. The Tarot cards was invented by the gypsies

This is folklore. No evidence in history suggests that the Tarot was invented by the gypsies. Although the exact origin of the Tarot is unsure, Tarot as game cards has evolved in Europe around the 15th century.

Valuable, hand painted cards were created for distinguished aristocrats, and then less expensive versions were mass produced for the public at large.


3. The Tarot cards are always right

A reading by a highly attuned psychic, clairvoyant or intuitive will reveal the possibilities of your future. However, the reality depends on you. The choices you make determine the twist and turns of the days ahead of you. To say the Tarot cards are always right is a little misguided.


4. You can’t trust Tarot readers

In every profession you will come across people you cannot trust. However, there is no reason to generalize all Tarot readers. Choose a Tarot reader you feel comfortable with. Again, trust your intuition, you will know when you have found the right person.


5. The “Death” card means you are going to die

Contrary to popular belief, the “Death” card represents change. It may mean the end of one job, and the beginning of another. The end of a relationship and the opportunity for new love. The death card means there is opportunity to change your path and move towards the next stage of your life.


So now you have no more worries if you’re thinking to learn about Tarot cards or wanting to find solution to your life challenges from Tarot. All you need is to first be confident of yourself.


Hope this writing has enabled you to see the other side of Tarot cards, broaden your horizon and give you the right mindset. May your every steps be guided and your paths are always clear. See you soon!
