A few weeks ago, I needed to make some final decisions. I wasn’t sure what would be the best decision to make because the outcome of both were very unknown.
I decided to go see a tarot card reader for fun since I locked up my own personal tarot deck in storage.
As a side note, I stopped messing around with tarot cards for a long time just because I felt it was like playing with the ouija board. When I look back to a lot of my own readings, they actually did try to help me. Everything that happened wasn’t just a placebo affect either. I was going through such a harsh time that I didn’t want to know anymore adversities I’d have to face so I felt it was just nice to not know things and put the cards away in storage.
So since I didn’t have my own tarot cards, I went to get a reading.
The tarot card reader told me to make an intention/ask a question, shuffle the deck and then cut the deck in 3. She didn’t ask what my intention was as she started to flip the cards over. The entire layout answered my questions. She had no idea what my question was but just started to read the cards that were laid out. Anytime I had another question, she would tell me to pull any 3 cards. I did and for as many questions I asked, the answers were consistent with each other.
When my time was almost up, we talked about what my questions and concerns were and to her surprise, none of them had to do with romance. As another side note: Tarot readers aren’t mind readers, they’re translators, which means anyone can learn how to read tarot cards. It’s basically learning another language.
The reason why I never asked about love and romance about someone else is because it has nothing to do with me or my goals. I told her that and she was happy to hear that because most of her clients come in to ask about other people instead of themselves, which in turn, makes them come back trying to get more answers to questions they shouldn’t even ask.
In my opinion, getting a love reading about someone else is spying and an invasion of privacy. Just think about how you would feel if you knew that someone you weren’t interested in/broke up with/creeped out by kept getting tarot card readings about how you feel and what you’re doing. You’d feel violated. Even if you feel that the other person doesn’t know, it’s still a violation and bad karma. The only love reading anyone should ever get is one about themselves.
It amazes me that out of all the tarot readings on Youtube, most of them are on love readings about other people. I admit looking at some long time ago when I thought I had a “twin flame”. Now I just laugh at myself because it showed just how needy and ignorant I was and to think that knowing about how someone else feels about me would make me feel better. It doesn’t. All it does is pull you away from your inner peace and sense of self.
If you ever decide to get a “love” reading, get one on yourself because really that’s the most important reading you could ever get. You can’t control what others do or how they feel. In fact, you can’t control most things in life but you can always control what you do and how you feel. The tarot cards are just there to assist.
If you decide you want to learn how to read for yourself for fun or in all seriousness, I suggest starting with any Rider-Waite tarot deck. It really is the easiest way to learn how to understand each card and its relation to other cards in the deck. I bought the Radiant Rider-Waite Tarot Deck and Book Set as my first because, well, it really was radiant.
However, now I have a different deck that I like better because it actually fits more with my interests. I figured if I was going to buy another tarot deck and book set, it would be something that grabs my attention right away. I searched for a while and finally found one! It’s the Mystical Manga Tarot Deck and Book Set.
I bought this set because it resonated right away the moment I saw it. I’ve always loved Japanese anime and remember seeing the word “Manga” a lot. It brought back a lot of really good memories of when I watched Sailor Moon, Akira, Ninja Scroll, and Wicked City as a teenager.
I’ve had this set for a couple of weeks now. It’s so rad and I absolutely love it! If you love Japanese anime, then you should definitely snag a set and do some love readings but, of course, on yourself! Cheers!
