I miss my blog… my virtual absence will be properly compensated – I promise. I was not on vacation, but at the moment I’m traveling and I had the opportunity to see my old tarot classmates.
Whenever we see each other, we have long conversations about the consultations, reading techniques and eventual experiences when interpreting the spreads. A main subject we discussed was the tarot reader’s responsibility to read the cards and pass on the information.
Everyone feels both a bit fascinated and spooked out when meeting a clairvoyant who can just look at you and start talking about your life, perfectly describe a “man /woman” you love or warn you that someone in the family is going to die. Card and tarot readers may also tell you bad things that have not yet happened, influencing the person’s life negatively.
I have recently talked to some people who, unfortunately, have gone through such incidences. A middle-aged woman told me that about thirty years ago, a fortuneteller said that she had a spell cast on her to make her whole life go south. She confessed that she still thinks about it to this day.
Another acquaintance told me a terrible story. She went to a tarot consultation in which the reader said that she was in a bad relationship and saw that she was going to break up with her boyfriend. Then her boyfriend also consulted with the same person, who made that same prediction for him.
In short: this “prophecy” undermined their relationship. It got weakened and they ended up splitting. However, here’s a detail: they loved each other, they got along very well and suffered a lot from all of this. And in the end, what the reader predicted really happened, but to other relationships this woman had throughout her life. Now, some twenty years later, this couple still like each other but are still estranged. This consultation left them with a very bitter taste in their mouths.
I’m not saying that every time you have a consultation it will always mean good news. But there are ways to pass along the information. A seer, tarot reader, fortuneteller, astrologer and the like must help the person to make better decisions according to the trends and opportunities that the spread presents. That is the responsibility I am referring to. Or, if the spread shows a difficult period, at least prepare and calm down the client, because everything goes by.
Life goes by in periods, just like the seasons of the year. Perhaps till your early twenties, it was just a beautiful summer (mild, hopefully!). But once you reach forty, fifty or sixty years old it’s uncommon not having been through any winter. Almost everyone has had some struggle.
But if you’ve NEVER been through any of that, congratulations! You are one of the few who came to Earth on vacation.
