Tarot & Psychic Insight – Common Reasons for Inaccurate Tarot Readings

Most people know that tarot cards are about as evil as

coloring books. Instead of being tools of some satanic

force, they’re simply pieces of cardboard with pictures

that help to trigger intuition. The more intuitive a reader

is, and the more they know the cards and have established

a dependable system to use them, the more accurate their

readings are.

Of course, the question for the tarot reader is important

too. General, unfocussed, or trivial questions tend to get

poor results. Specific questions tend to get specific answers.

Questions such as “Will I be rich?” or “When will I meet

my soul mate?” are very common, but not well stated; rich

means different things to different people and we all have

many soul mates. “What will be with the idea I have for a

business?” or “What will be with my love life in the next

6 months?” are much more appropriate questions. Also,

if the questioner isn’t supposed to know something

because it may interfere with his or her destined path,

for example, a good reader will know the question isn’t

meant to be explored.

Another important yet often overlooked factor which

effects accuracy with tarot spreads is personal energy.

Just as you have a great energy connection with certain

friends which results in great experiences, or a poor

energy connection with a neighbor who isn’t respectful,

positive or negative energy between a reader and client

can greatly influence the quality of the reading.

For example, when Stephen does a tarot reading for a

long-standing client with whom he has a great working

relationship, the energy connection is good and that

person’s faith in Stephen as a reader allows the information

he “receives” to flow freely and copiously. Alternatively,

when he does a reading for someone who’s very critical

and skeptical or who happens to be projecting, for whatever

reason, a lot of negativity energy, because of Stephen’s

strong empathic and spiritually sensitive state, he’ll feel

blocked and not compelled to help the person.

How does tarot work? There are many theories, but we

believe tarot readings can very effectively outline current

and destined personal circumstances because there exists a

divine order in this Universe, everyone is intimately

connected to this order, and because fate exists. Also, the

78 unique tarot cards and the methods employed using them

are mathematically and symbolically synchronistic with

“what is.” An experienced tarot reader can tap into this

synchronicity. It is not an “accident” or “coincidence” when

certain cards appear in certain positions in the tarot spread

of an experienced reader.

Some readers claim that their tarot spreads are “…only about

the current path you are on. It’s possible you will change

directions and avoid the outcome indicated.” In some cases

this can be true, but some readers might say this because

they lack confidence in their abilities, or to attempt to

empower their clients and keep them from feeling too much

fear about the future.

However, based on our 22+ years (combined 44+) of

experience with metaphysics, we believe that the majority

of significant future personal life events and circumstances,

as outlined by tarot, comprehensive astrology and numerology,

and other esoteric sciences, are immutable. If something is

going to happen, it’s going to happen.

We believe, based on years of regular spreads for ourselves

and others, that the future can be seen through tarot.

However, as stated above, results depend heavily upon

the reader and other factors listed in this column.

Lastly, to provide a better idea of why some readers

don’t offer as much insight as you might hope, here are

some other common reasons for inaccurate tarot readings:

*The reader, even with an extremely successful track

record and a very consistent, high accuracy level, has

an off reading and happens to give one of his or her

inaccurate readings to the client (no reader is 100%


*The reader is inexperienced with the process and, or

does not yet know at least the bulk of the symbolism

found through each of the 78 cards.

*The reader is not very intuitive, or his or her intuition

is blocked for whatever reason.

*The reader’s philosophies and beliefs conflict with “what

is” (e.g., he or she tells the client that they can cheat fate

and erase all of their tough karma without having to directly

balance it, or that they can have the “relationship of their

dreams” whenever they want, creating a “permanent,”

blissful, conflict-free “life-partner” situation without the

use of self-deception, manipulation, and conditional love).

*The day and time (universal, and the client’s personal

numerological and astrological timing) of the reading strongly

suggests, despite the high level of expertise and accuracy of

the reader, that information imparted at that moment may not

be as appropriate or accurate as it would be at other times.

*The client is fated to hear specific information in the reading

that turns out to be inaccurate, but that information helps to

ultimately steer them in the right direction.

*The reader is biased about the issue related to the reading;

human filters can and sometimes do get in the way of

spiritual guidance.
