Yeah, there are some things that frighten the hell out of folks, but tarot cards should never be cause for alarm. You see, it’s imagery that is supposed to inspire and give you ideas. Consider options, look at the alternatives, and so forth. But there are certain cards that do make some folks jump, and maybe it’s because of the imagery we associate them with. Afterall, various media from movies to the nightly news can have an effect on one’s imagination.
First off, the Devil. Many readers associate this with false truths, being untrue to yourself, and maybe even giving you the go ahead to be a bit sneaky and spoil yourself, depending on the reader and the context of the cards. One interpretation for our current era could represent “fake news.” Next we see the Tower. People falling out of a crumbling building is no laughing matter, but in the event that this comes up in a reading, remember that you might be getting a reading because you want to restructure some aspect of your life. The people are getting out of a situation, and the building itself is likely going under renovation. Things are being shaken up, and it’s possible that anything from your professional life to cleaning out a storage unit is what is needed. Ah yes, Death. The infamous Death card represents a change. No one is dropping anvils on your head. Again, remember why you went for a reading in the first place. You might be bored stiff or stuck in a bad situation. This card will help motivate you when you when you look towards your goals and the future you’d like to design for yourself.
Simply put, these are cards. If they help you suss out the options and come up with a game plan, great! If you and your friends want to use them to try and predict the playoffs as a novelty, have at it. Just don’t try and scam anyone. Nobody needs that. Have fun with the tarot, enjoy yourself.
Until next time, stay cool!
